What I wish for.... And.... What I get!

I know its been a while since I have posted anything of real significance, I wish I had something significant to say.  But alas, I think all my used up brain cells are being put into my English Composition II class.  I only have just this one class this session, but it is kicking my butt.  It takes up practically every non-working, non-sleeping hour of my days.  Learning how to write proper essays, in APA style citations, including all the research involved is just so time consuming.  Thank goodness I just have the one class! 

Yes oh Yes, how I wish I could think of something really witty, clever and fun to write about. Unfortunately, I just can't think, plain and simple!  Or maybe it's just that I have absolutely no creativity?  Hmmmm...

Anyway, back to what I wish for...

Right now I am wishing for more time.  More time at home, more time with my husband, more time to do homework, more time to blog, oh and lets not forget more time to sleep.  Guess its not in the cards right now!  So I do the best I can.


Thank goodness I am finally feeling better. I wish that I had not been sick for the past 4 weeks.  I can't say I felt really sick except that I have been battling dizziness. Besides that, I had some headaches and extreme tiredness once in a while.  I tried going the natural way first and DH did some ear candling on me in hopes to remove any fluid that was in my ears. After all, it's worked before.  This is what was found.....

Ummm yeah thats Ear Wax!  Gross Huh?

I wasn't going to even post this picture but you know.... I just had too.  After all it does make a more interesting post right?  Besides, it's Halloween.  Ha!

Anyway... a week after the candling and I was still dizzy and it was getting worse so I went to the doctor.  I hate going to the doctor! However, as a driver for work it was really unsafe for me to continue driving like that.  Well I learned that I had a double ear infection AND a sinus infection!  The doctor prescribed a Z-pac, some nasal spray and some motion sickness medicine that I couldn't take anyway because it would knock me out.  The Z-pac is a 5 day antibiotic and I did feel slightly better after that except that I still had dizzy spells once in a while.  So another week passes by and one day I wake up and my head is spinning continually.  It's the worse dizziness that I have ever experienced.  So I called in sick for work and went back to the doctor.  Doctor prescribes another antibiotic, this time penicillin based Augmentin.  Why didn't they prescribe this the first time?  Also he told me to take Mucinex D.  

So after new meds, a priesthood blessing, and 7 days later I am finally feeling like myself again.  The dizziness is gone thank goodness! 


Now on to better news....  I AM GOING TO BE A GRANDMA!!! 

Kyle and Domonique are expecting a baby in May.  We are so excited!  She is doing ok so far.  Luckily she hasn't had the whole morning sickness thing, but she is very tired and slightly moody once in a while.  All to be expected.  We are just really glad they are both here with us where we can take care of them and provide a safe and loving home for the baby. 


How have you been enjoying your Fall weather?  We have been having such a really lovely Fall and I have been thoroughly enjoying all the pretty colors of the trees as they prepare for dormancy.  We have taken a few drives through the canyons recently and it has just been beautiful.  I took very few pictures unfortunately but here are a couple...

However, as of today, the weather seems to be changing into colder, wetter weather.  We even woke up to snow on the tops of the mountains. We could get a little dusting of snow in town by morning, but I am hoping not.  I am just not ready for the snow.  Let me rephrase that... I am not ready "mentally" for the snow.  I am ready for the snow as far as the warm boots, gloves, coats, hats and all that a person needs to stay dry and warm.  Thanks to my DH he took me shopping this weekend to get me set up for what I will need for working out in the elements. 

I know it's inevitable, but can't I wish for a little more of the nice, warm Fall weather we have had so far?

Good job on catching up with what you has been going on with you. Glad you're felling better, and hope school will go a little better for you. Glad you got some warm weather wear.

Well, I know how you felt regarding the dizziness thing. Mom probably told you but I had an inner ear thing going on that was giving me vertigo. I was on motion sickness medicine for the first 3 days. Wiped me out completely. I never slept so much in my life. The good part was I guess my body needed to catch up. Anyways, I couldn't function so I stopped taking it and dealt with the dizziness. It took me a full week to feel better. Missed some work because of it... Gordon didn't want me driving and I didn't feel the greatest. Sounds like you had it worst then me. Glad your feeling better. Congrats on going to have a new granchild. Sounds weird though! My sister, a grandma!
Oh, Well.. take care!

We've done ear candling here as well. I'm always wondering what one would think if they came in and saw that big fiery cone sticking from one of our ears. It helps my one daughter greatly.

Have a blessed night!

Beautiful fall pictures! Stunning.
Glad you are feeling better.

Sorry about the English class. I so remember those days....not that long ago.
I bought a computer program that did the APA format for me. It was PERLA something or other.

I am new to blogging. I found your blog searching for LDS blogs. I enjoyed your book review for Silence of God.

Priesthood blessings are key to helping us heal properly.

I have just recently started my blogging. Yours is a good blog. I have never been to Montana but it sounds wonderful. I will have to take my family there some day.

I only have one blog while you have many but I hope to have many in the future.

thank you for sharing
