Goals and Starting over as a “new blogger”

ShareTweet I had plans, at the beginning of the year, or the end of last year, to get back to blogging fulll-time. I gave myself a deadline of February 1st. Well, you can see that didn’t happen. With that said, I still have blogging goals and I still plan a big come back to all the blogz.  Writing has been difficult for me in the last six years due to some life changing events in my life. I’m ready to move on and learn to write/blog all over again. The hardest part was that I couldn’t organize in my head what to write about. I just couldn’t get any words to come from my head out through my fingers. So, I did a bunch of research on YouTube, and i learned about Bullet Journaling. I’m … Read entire article »

My personal secret, coming out of my cave to speak about my disability

ShareTweet Hello friends and family, I’m sorry for the distance between my posts. I hope that when new people find my pages, they find enough to enjoy, but I do always wish they had something new to keep them coming back, so I’m working on several new posts to come out in the next few days. Tonight, I want to tell you a little secret that may not be secret to many of you, but I’m going public with it now. I’ve spent the last year, or more, holding down my bed. Literally. My prescriptions total up to 30 now and I’ve gained 100 pounds of my lost 160, from my weight loss surgery, in less than six months. They always say that you gained it slow, don’t expect to lose it slow.. but I didn’t … Read entire article »

Soapbox in the name of Obamacare and Free Enterprise

ShareTweet It takes something extraordinary, these days, to get me to hurt myself, physically, to open this lappie.. but here she blogs… Okay.  At first, I didn’t know what to say (great opening for a debate, eh?)  No, this is not a debate.  These are some facts, that are personal, and not up for debate. I consider Home Delivered Pizza a privilege and convenience food.  I could care less if the pie went up a dollar each. BUT.. This is just the beginning of getting our heads out of the sand.  I have kept my politics out of blog all year, which means I’ve been stewing to spew forth.. Obamacare is the beginning of something so ugly that I’ve not been wanting to talk about it. I’m depressed.  You should be, too. Before Obamacare, I had to stop … Read entire article »

Living withing Reach

ShareTweet I’ve considered over and over if I should write this post. I’ve been giving a lot about my personal life away, lately, for the sake of honesty and integrity in blogging and hoping that others out there don’t think that they are alone, in any way. I live within reach. This means that everything I may need or want has to be within reach of me. I fell off the bed, the other night, trying to reach for something.  I yelled “help” for over an hour, before someone in my house, woke up for other reasons and could hear me.  Helping me up was torture and only added to my pain, but I’m okay. But, this only re-enforces the idea of living within reach..  Except for when I was on the floor I’m in … Read entire article »

Brain Blue Screen of Death

ShareTweet I think I’ve figured out why these accounts keep going down each month.  For some reason they was no monthly contract to pay for the hosting.  I’ve fixed that. My brain can’t seem to keep up. It is like the blue screen of death.  It hurts to think about it.  Come to think of it maybe all of these stressful things I haven’t figured out yet may be causing my daily headaches. Who knows? I wish life could be put into a tiny little box of things I could go through to fix all of the things my brain can’t keep up with. I read the first chapter of a great book, that a doctor gave to me, that explained why my brain doesn’t work like a computer.  I wish I knew what the … Read entire article »

Miss you Dad

ShareTweet “Oh, when we are journeying through the murky night and the dark woods of affliction and sorrow, it is something to find here and there a spray broken, or a leafy stem bent down with the tread of His foot and the brush of His hand as He passed; and to remember that the path He trod He has hallowed, and thus to find lingering fragrance and hidden strength in the remembrance of Him as “in all points tempted like as we are,” bearing grief for us, bearing grief with us, bearing grief like us.”  ~ Alexander MacLaren Read more: http://www.whatchristianswanttoknow.com/bible-verses-for-bereavement-10-helpful-scripture-quotes/#ixzz1oDYXLdce I’ve decided since I can’t walk the ALS walks, this month.. I’m going to go sit at the cemetery for a while, instead.  I want to keep May private for my … Read entire article »

Disabled Dilemmas for 2012 ALS Walks

ShareTweet March has a lot going on that I may miss because I can’t walk as normal, fast, or as long as usual. March 24, 2012 – ALS Walk Low Country – Riverfront Park March 24, 2012 – ALS WAlk – Augusta, Georgia (again a conflicting date, too) March 31, 2012 – ALS Jacksonville I may have to miss them this year. I know my dad will understand but it still upsets me. If you can walk, I’d appreciate you walk any of these for me, in honor of my father Michael Jeffers I’m going to looking into an auto wheel chair to rent for these walks.  I have no idea how much they will be but I do have a hitch on my van and a hitch tray if needed. At first, I was looking for … Read entire article »

I’m a depressed adult born of a depressed adult

ShareTweet For the most part, I don’t write about my depression.  I only try to keep this blog full of the good times.  Hence the emptiness in the last year or two. Something happened to me two weeks ago, though.  I found me again.  That’s the only way I can describe it.  I could set aside the war torn, tossed and turned life I’ve lived, and think of things to write about again. A battle emerged on my Facebook page, the other night, and my “grandmother” said something about stepping back and re-evaluating how I felt.  I deleted all the posts related to this entanglement. For the first time I saw and realized that many read and don’t comment. I realized they were there. I wished someone a Happy Birthday and in their Thank-you, they … Read entire article »
