MckMamma is at it again - Giveaway Alert!

You just can't blink & there are more fabulous giveaways going on. . . check this one out!


I announced a while back that big changes were coming. I am ready to spill the beans, so to speak. It is probably not as exciting as the anticipation has made it out to be . . . but for me, it is, well, pretty exciting.

o WORK - some may already know this part . . . I cut back to a casual position at Aurora Baycare Medical Center. This was an incredibly difficult decision for me to make as I LOVE my job helping families welcome new babies. My coworkers are top notch! At first, I believed simply pulling back from the prenatal classes & hospital orientation classes would be enough. After further evaluation, Scott & I discovered that the 12 hour shifts proved very challenging given my grad school commitments & my family obligations. I contemplated this move way too long. I was worried that I’d be letting people down. By being so afraid of letting others down, I was basically letting down the little ones who mean WAY more to me than anyone else of this world. {sorry fellow coworkers – but I grew these little guys!}

o SCHOOL – I am transferring from Gonzaga University to Benedictine University. I will remain in the Masters of Science of Nursing program in the educator track & will graduate in the same time frame. It is entirely online with no residency requirement. This decision is mostly financial. It will allow me to make the work change described above. Most of my completed courses will transfer.

o FAMILY – No, we are not expanding our family by any way! Let us just squash that rumor before it gets started! The changes in my work commitments will allow us to have more quality time together as a family. Taking classes online does allow me to be physically present at home, but I’ve been absent in every other way. It is over due time for me to be truly present for my family. I am starting NOW by taking 2 weeks OFF of work (okay, actually starting after teaching on Saturday, but you get the point). Christmas is stressful enough with get togethers & what not.

o HEALTH – Another area of speculation lately. While it is true that I became fairly ill with a probable case of influenza in October, I have recovered completely from that. Other interesting issues emerged around that same time, coincidental or otherwise. It seems I may have a latex allergy. My lovely bands for my braces {the ones I had been wearing for 3 MONTHS!} may have been the culprit to my swollen, itchy, scaly eyelids & wheezing. I finally figured it out & most of the issues have subsided. I am attempting to reclaim a healthy balance, but this has proven very difficult with the work/school/family schedule conflicts. Sleep had gone by the wayside. Stress took over. Running on reserve is no path to wellness. I consulted with my chiropractor & my naturopath. I am on a supplement regimen to fight adrenal fatigue. Some inflammatory processes have been sprouting up here & there. Again, I believe these are symptoms of severe stress & fatigue. I just need a real break.

That is pretty much it! Of course there are many things I plan to do with my family & my interests. We enjoy our church home, St. Mark, in De Pere. God is the center of our lives. We would love to get involved with a Bible study again. I am very passionate about natural health & wellness. I plan to continue studying this alongside my graduate schooling. I hope to fit a little crafting in with my boys. I will also squeeze some clinical teaching in here & there. So, as you can see, I have plenty to keep me occupied. I am so blessed to have these opportunities.

Time for Change

It's been SO BUSY! Sometimes I want to scream, "STOP THE INSANITY!!!" Don't worry, you won't find me curled up in the fetal position or anything like that. Not yet. I've realized the error of my way & am going to stop & smell the proverbial roses. But how does one take a step back? How can I slow down without letting others down? That's not the right question to ask. . . I needed to ask myself this: How can I go on potentially letting those who are MOST IMPORTANT in my life down?

The light blinked for a while before I caught on to that one! Suddenly, TA DA! The light bulb is staying lit! I need to rearrange my commitments so I can spend more precious time with my little guys before they're not little anymore! Why didn't I see this sooner?

But what do I give up? Well, changes are underway & there are more to come. What? Yup, changes are coming. I need to finalize some things yet & won't reveal them quite yet. . .but we're excited! How can I not be? God has blessed me with SO MUCH! Look at these guys. . . gotta love 'em!

I Can Can!!!

Yup - it's happened! I'm domesticated! I now can sew & I can can! Here's the proof of the latter: a little before & after. . .
And the picture of me with my boys is taken at Fonferek Glenn. . . a local waterfall (without so much water this summer) that we hiked around the week before last. I have to admit that my heart skipped a few beats with the boys running around there. There is such an abrupt drop off that I don't trust my spirited brood to be careful enough. . . but we all survived. . .
I hope to have more to add in the near future. . .maybe in Peekyboos though. . I want to sew!

I'm still alive

I'm the worst updater there is in blog land. I've been busy with all that life throws at me. . .and have pictures of things. . .but just have not made the time to update this thing. I don't have the pics on my laptop yet, but here's a list of what I've been doing:

finished my advanced pathophysiology class (and passed! Yay!)
teaching breastfeeding basics class
updated Preparing for Labor, Birth & Beyond class & teaching it
trying to enjoy what is left of summer with my boys
making pepper jelly
planning to make salsa & spaghetti sauce & then canning!!!
getting ready for school to start for the boys & for me again next week. . .UGH!
thinking of all of the sewing projects I'd love to get going. . .
trying to organize all that is disorganized (which is a LOT!) before school begins

Yup, that is just skimming the surface. . . so we've been busy. Oh, let's not forget working. . . and rocking these braces with newly added big old rubber bands to make me miserable. Hopefully I'll get pictures up on here to show you the fruits of my garden! Loving that! Just wish those tomatoes woudl all be ready so I could develop my spaghetti sauce & can it before next week. . .oh well! When life throws you tomatoes. . . yeah, never mind. .

I'll motivate soon!

PRAY for Stellan ~ Pray first, pray hard, pray often!

This little guy & his family have been through A LOT over the past year. Stellan is quite the little fighter. His family is QUITE amazing as well. Why? You may ask. .. ??? In my opinion, they have the faith that moves mountains. Many people in this situation would throw up their arms in despair and shout to God, "WHY ME???!!!" Not this family! (Kind of a Not Me, Monday theme here maybe?) Nope, not this family. . . they continue to PRAISE God instead of blame Him. They continue to HOLD STRONG in their hour of despair. I'm humbled by their strength.

Let's all PRAISE GOD! We don't know what He has planned, but He hears all prayers from those who believe. Pray first, pray hard & pray often!

Please pray for Stellan!

Country USA has begun!

Clearly, I am getting too old for this kind of behavior. . . but I keep doing it anyway. . . I know, I'm a rebel. I'm also a procrastinator as I have a midterm due tomorrow & I need to get it whipped out today even though I only had a few hours of sleep & probably a bit too much non H2O type beverages last night. Just saying. . dehydration is a nasty thing!

Here goes. . .hope I got some good pics. . . not bad. . . I'll work on getting better ones tonight:)

Finally Spring, Keith Urban & other tidbits. . .

Wisconsin has finally decided that it will let Spring in. . . and Spring has quite literally blown in.. no kidding. I saw a bird flying backwards the other day & Dorothy & Toto whizzed by chased by the Wicked Witch of the West!
I have hopes of getting my garden planted today with my dear Mother as well as get the mountain of laundry conquered. I'll be happy with one or the other.
Scott & I went to the Keith Urban concert last Saturday night & it was FANTASTIC!!!! We were in the 4th ROW!!! How cool is that? Here are some snapshots of the boy taken with my Dad's camera - which is only 3 or 4x optical zoom. Next time I will bite the bullet & take my Kodak EasyShare with 12x optical zoom. I mean I was close enough & everything. . .but I'm used to my own camera. Plus, I have bruises from a couple of young pups pushing their way past me to the stage. I'm getting too old for this! Sheesh!

No more Whistling

I like to whistle. . .I do it often. Whistle while you work. . I do that. . . wait, no I did that. Now I can't whistle! You see, I had this idea that maybe, after being on this awesome Earth for 34 years, I'd try to have straighter teeth. . . so that maybe I wouldn't bite my tongue or the sides of my mouth anymore. So today I got BRACES! Yup, feeling a little regretful right now due to the discomfort caused by alien metal brackets scratching at the insides of my mouth. Hey, better yet, yesterday I got one of my very adult front lower teeth PULLED out! All of this in the name of a more perfect smile. And tonight, while trying to call the dog inside, I attempted to whistle & I COULDN'T!!!! Aww MAN!
Well, I guess I have to look at the bright side. . . I'll definately lose some weight not being able to eat much for the next few days. Eating is just not so enjoyable due to the fact that my teeth are quite sensitive & there is still a gaping hole in the front of my mouth. Oh, and the 15 to 20 minutes it takes me to clean food out of my beautiful brackets is just so lovely. I think I'll be using my juicer even more now. Why eat when you can drink? (OH, could that have so many other meanings!)
I'm going to bed. I'm sure I'll wake up tomorrow wondering what I was thinking yet again. . . but with each passing day I'm sure it will improve. . . . right?

I know - it's been far too long yet again.
I'm currently on Day 4 of a 21 day Cleanse. Why? You may ask. . . Well, the system was starting to feel sluggish & the waistline & butt were expanding... need I say more? For those of you wondering which one???? I am doing the Standard Process cleanse. I do not work for or with this company in any way, shape or form. (that's my disclaimer) So far I'm doing pretty well.

Here's the rundown:
Day 1
on empty stomach I had to consume 10 pills (7 cleanse & 3 fiber) plus a shake made with the SP complete protein powder. I made my shake with freshly juiced fruit & a carrot. I made too much & therefore had to drink it all. Note to self: don't make it a big serving of juice & don't add ice cubes. . . brain freeze! Not much, if any, room left in the tummy after that!

We went on an outing to a local waterfowl preserve & saw how maple syrup is made. The boys had ice cream with fresh maple syrup over the top. . .looked super yummy. . . can't cheat already! I drank water.
Lunch: bowl of homemade veggie soup, banana, shake made with apple juice, strawberries, blueberries & just a couple ice cubes. . . . again, too much! DUH! Skip the ice!
had a headache - hmmm. . no caffeine will do that to you. . . had to have some Green Tea. . .headache resolved!
1 1/2 hrs after lunch: 10 pills as described above with water
Supper: Artichoke with garlic, olive oil & a bit of flax oil . . . artichokes are a lot of work for a little bit of food. I probably worked off a few pounds just preparing to eat it!
Raw carrot & some lentils (hmmm, lentils. . .new food for me. not too bad)

later: only 1 scoop SP complete (usually 2 scoops per shake) with beet, ginger, carrot, apple juice. . . note to self: not good combo. smelled like dirt. . .tasted like dirt. . . yuck. guess my poop will be red later! (sorry for the graphic detail there!)

Bedtime: pills with lots of water!!!

done with DAY 1!!!! Yay! Only slight headache. . . relieved by tea.

Day 2
Pills & shake - made with 1 orange, 1 carrot juiced. . .MUCH BETTER! water
more water - green tea - 1/4 banana as a snack
Pills & shake - with OJ/carrot juice , water
Lentils - cold with a little sea salt. . .tasty little buggers!
Salad: mixed greens, broccoli, green onion, red onion - lightly sprinkled with organic asian dressing
Supper: homemade veggie soup with some organic spaghetti sauce - a little cheat there - but it wasn't very good. . . water
handful of popcorn - yup - I gave in just slightly - so what???
bedtime: shake & pills - not messing with the juice - same as above
water, 1/8 banana (what one of the boys didn't finish)

Day 3
pills & shake - same juice, water
green tea
NOON: pills & shake
then I got fancy: stir fry - used cocount oil, garlic, peppercorn, broccoli, carrots, zucchini, green onions & lentils served over fresh baby greens - very good but I was FULL!!!

handful of popcorn - yes, I have no will power - ok, very low will power, water
small serving spicy veg soup with lentils, water
weighed myself at Mom & Dad's = 128.5!!!!! WOOOO HOOOO! Less than 2 weeks ago I weighed myself there & was 134. . . so I guess I've lost some weight already:)
Pills & shake - same juice, water
handful of popcorn - I know, I must be crazy. . . but we're talking handful only, water

so that brings us to today. .
Day 4
I was TIRED this morning!!!
Pills & shake - good old carrot OJ again, water
late AM: carrots, lentils, celery & green tea
late lunch: pills & shake - no more oranges - used fresh juiced apples instead - not bad
That is it so far. I'm going to throw the popcorn away. . . but man, it seems fairly innocent compared to the tortilla chips & Girl Scout Cookies. I'm a little nauseated today while I drink the shakes. . .or is it the pills? Not sure. I do feel a bit more energetic after the early morning slacking. I really cannot wait until Sunday when I can prepare a nice piece of chicken or fish. Funny how much I want that right now. I can do this!!!

How DO I do it?

I get this question quite often lately. It usually goes something like this, "Wow! How do you find time to (fill in sew, read for pleasure, exercise) with 3 boys, work, grad school. . . .???"
HA! I usually respond with some smarty pants remark like, "I just don't sleep."

And let me tell you, sometimes that is the truth. . .however, I do have some secrets that don't require a big, red cape or an "S" inscribed in my chest. Also, you'll soon discover that there really isn't a Big Secret. Here's how:
  • I DON'T CLEAN my own house - we discovered that every 2 weeks is about the timeframe it takes for things to get beyond what even we can tolerate (hello, I have 3 boys - 4 if you count the 35 year old - & that means bathrooms get WAY nasty) - and I have a HUGE phobia of toilets in the first place (no, I don't crouch outside to do my business - but we're talking cleaning closeness here people). Not cleaning my house shaves off 4-5 hours of time at least - and yes, someone else cleans it for us.
  • USE DAYCARE I work 2 twelve hour day shifts a week & my youngest still goes to "school" 3 days a week. This 3rd day is my school day. Of course, sometimes this gets all messed up when I have a 3rd day of training - but I digress. . . there is a fair amount of punting that goes on.
  • SIMPLIFY MEALS - lately we've had our fair share of frozen pizza, subs & the like for quick meals. However, crock pots come in handy. A husband who is great at preparing food in the morning is also a wonderful asset. I try not to compromise health for the sake of convenience, however, as this leads to many other issues I won't get into right now.
  • PLAN & put on the SCHEDULE: FAMILY time, DATE night, out of the ordinary work & life comittments. This is so important. If something isn't on my calendar - it just isn't happening.
  • COMMUNICATION!!!!! with your spouse or support person. This is vital. Too many times my plan has gone down the crapper due to incommunicado. . (not sure if that word is appropriate there. ..but it sounds cool). I'm guilty for this as well. . . . I have a thought about how I think things should work out but fail to communicate that to my dear husband & as things would have it, he has other thoughts & then we end up butting heads & nothing actually gets done. Not good. I don't advise this. TALK, E-MAIL, WRITE NOTES (I like having proof of said communication so the written form is nice)
  • FLEXIBILITY. Not talking about not sticking with the plan here people. . .there are limits to how flexible you should allow everything to be - if you're TOO flexible, simple things can get in the way of your plan & throw the entire thing out of whack. That can lead to pure whackiness & that's no good. Be flexible but - and here is another one:
  • LEARN TO SAY "NO" - simple fact is that we can't do it all. We cannot be all things to all people at all times. At first, this felt uncomfortable. CAN I do something? Maybe. But by doing that something will I be putting other important plans in jeopardy? Even if it's sanity that you're putting in jeopardy - rethink it. We don't need to be at everyone's beck & call. There is someone else that can plan the PTO fundraiser, the neighborhood bash, the Bible study group. Take a step back to prioritize. If you must, help out with simple tasks but don't volunteer for bigger ones. Remember, things will get done without you & all will be happy. . . .and you might get some sleep!
  • Tune out the DISTRACTIONS. This one is my challenge. The phone rings - try not to answer it. Caller ID, answering machines, voicemail. . . that's what they're there for people! Facebook, email, etc. . ..electronic distractions are big ones too. . . . don't look at them. Set times to return calls, check & respond to email, linger on facebook. I know, I'm still struggling with this one. . .
  • Have a STRESS OUTLET!!!! Need I say more? Arguing with your loved one is not a good way to deal with stress. In fact, it can ADD to stress. . EXERCISE, PRAY, MEDITATE, do what you must to have a regular outlet for your stress. I'm going to do the exercise & pray thing. . trust me, exercise will require praying. Remember to SCHEDULE THIS!

Some of these things will require resources. If you don't have the resources to hire a cleaning lady or use extra daycare - come up with a bartering plan. Can you reduce the time you spend cleaning by having others help? Can you "lend" your children to a neighbor, friend or family member so they can help entertain their children? Be resourceful. People are generally able & willing to help you once they know what your goal is. Be ready for paybacks.

So, do you have something you WANT to take on? Wondering how you will fit it into your already very busy life? The key here is WANT. If you don't really want something - it just isn't going to happen. Make a plan. Surround yourself with people who can help you achieve your plan & share it with them. Then DO IT! This isn't a dress rehearsal people. . .it's life! You have one go around. If you're not doing something you have always wanted to do. . . figure out if you really want to do it. . . then plan & DO IT!!! (disclaimer: don't be reckless or stupid with that advice. I take no responsibility for anyone leaving their family & joining a traveling circus - unless that has always been your dream. . .just saying - no blaming me.)

That said - I need to fluff my cape - I'm off to work my plan!

Clearly Slacking in Blogland

Yup, slacking here on the Bloggyland duties. sorry about that. . . and of course, I have excuses. .but I'll spare you the details & the whining that accompanies.

My life is so full & I thank God for that. My family, my work, my neighbors, my schooling & my newly renewed FAITH fill me up & make me strive to be the best I can be. I am learning to appreciate ALL things - even those in my life that are challenges. I'm trying my best to embrace any obstacles & rethink them into stepping stones. I'm appreciating LIFE more.

Of course, right now, at this very minute, I'm PROCRASTINATING again. I should be writing my paper that is due tonight at midnight (Pacific time - so that's 2 MORE hours that I have - tee hee) I'm such a great procrastinator! This is my writing warm up session. . . yeah, that's right. See, there is a reason for my ramblings:)

Embrace Everything!

I'M IN!!!!

Got the call yesterday. . . and, yes, I'm officially IN grad school for my MSN through Gonzaga University. Of course, I still have to get my MAT score submitted & that very well may mean taking it AGAIN. {Thank you UPS for losing my test!!!} I'm staying positive & am very excited {aka nervous as all get out} to begin this journey. It's an online program {not moving to Washington} - so I'll have to be dedicated.

I'm on call today. . .yet again. Tuesdays are notorious for having TOO MANY nurses on the schedule where I work. FIFTEEN scheduled???? Are you kidding me? anyway. . .again, maybe this is a good thing. . . free day {kind of} to get some unexpected things done.

Of course, I waste no time {wasting time that is} & have discovered another really cool blog. . . go here to see what I'm talking about. Sweet Pea Totes is really inspiring. I may have to add it to my growing list on the right side over there. . . . >

I'm here - figuring out what to do with my Free Day. Drop me a line. . .

Happy New Year & Here is What I want to do

My To DO List just keep piling up thanks to all of you Talented Bloggy People {TBP} out there. Thanks to you, I should start to get some sleep sometime around the year 2259. Oh well!

I started reading the Twilight Saga!!!! I received Twilight from Scott's Grandparents the Sunday before Christmas & began to read it sometime last week. I'm already through it & started on New Moon. . which was a to me from me. I want to get Eclipse - but I'm going to have to have to bite the bullet (no pun intended) & purchase the hard copy. I already have Breaking Dawn from my dear Godmother. I'm entranced!

I really want to refashion some clothing. . .but we'll see how that works out for me. I'll keep you updated.

Still no word on the MAT. . .I will most likely have to retake it & I am not happy about that. But I fully intend to not think about that much right now because it's irritating. I'm trying to be positive in all circumstances for 2009 so maybe I will ace it when I retake it??? I can begin grad school classes without being accepted into the program. . . I should hear something more about that this coming week.

My house smells really good! I owe that to Young Living Essential Oils. They rock! I already need to order more Thieves & I'm thinking we'll try some Myrrh for some family skin conditions.

I want to make these knitted slippers. . . I haven't had the knitting needles out in QUITE some time. . .well, maybe for getting corners to lay flat when I turned something. . .but not for knitting. I subscribe to Craftsylish so I happened upon this "easy" tutorial there. We'll see how that works out. I'll post pics on PeekyBoos when I get them started/done. . . I have a TON of yarn.

I would also like to attempt some more doll clothes for my nieces. Hmmm. . .I may even think about starting on Christmas gifts for NEXT YEAR!! We'll see. I get a little ambitious sometimes with what I think I might be able to accomplish. . .but in the real world. . .I do need to sleep!

Happy New Year!
Jennifer B
