Monday Musings


Today is Monday, December 14th, 2015 and I’m musing about

  • I’d like to thank the new followers from the Blogging U group
  • I joined another Blogging U group, it’s a commenting bootcamp because I completely suck at commenting on other’s blogs.  I really want to improve.
  • I’ve had a bad week I was in pain before the shots in my hips, then after the usual bruising and now right hips still hurts so I have no idea what’s going on.  Nausea has gone to an all time high and this rainy dismal damp December weather isn’t helping.
  • I don’t think either of my kidlets read my blog about my vents about them but I didn’t scream at them…much
  • My son picked up my newly repainted table in distressed red done by the amazing Painted Twice Designs
  • Yesterday, I posted a short blog with a short video of my crazy pupalup playing with a can of soup, yes he has LOTS of real toys and why my daughter gave him the can is another mystery but it was quite funny.
  • I received my secret Santa gift this past week and she hit it out of the park and I loved everything, the book I needed, socks to keep me cozy, a new tea and a Sheepie Mug (I had one but it broke) Thank you Stacy <3
  • my daughter has her finals this week and to say there is a bit of stress around the house is an understatement
  • Hopefully with my hubby home we can get our tree up this week
  • Christmas shopping is mostly done and thankful for that online shopping thing that’s become so popular
  • I need to get Christmas cards completed
  • I need to get back on track blogging starting today with my Monday Musings
  • My #AKF4 or #AlwaysKeepFighting IV shirt is on it’s way to me! #AKF is the Always Keep Fighting by Jarad Padalecki who suffers and is fighting depression.  It’s my second t-shirt from the campaign but it’s true to my heart because I’m fighting everyday

Thursday Thought with Ramblings of a Suburban Mom

Today I’m happy that it’s warmer and the sun is out.  I’m still so itchy and wish that it would just go away.  Doe anyone know if you use oatmeal in a bath if it clogs your drain?  I guess with the rashes it’s not such an “invisible illness”?

The “Featured Image” is a sneak peak on a special blog that will be posted on Saturday! Stay tuned here!

Thanks to Jennifer at Ramblings I can manage both of my instagram accounts at the same time because it’s a pain logging out of one and then into the other and back again and then again.  You get the point.  So you can have only three streams with the free Hootsuite

I’ve been researching flights for the girlie to go to Kathmandu, Nepal for the Habitat build.  The earliest she can get there is 22 hours and the next is 33 hours.  I’m good with research and such so I will keep looking.

I’ve changed my Pinterest from a personal to a business account as a blogger.  If you see a broken photo link please let me know because I’m learning as I go!

If you like info about Thyroid issues, Autoimmune Diseases, Lupus, Fibromyalgia, Depression, Migraines then check out my facebook page because I share a lot of info I get there.  I’m not sure what I can share here so sharing a post that great information is better to be shared in it’s entirety.  So join me on Facebook

What I have in grey and love and will exchange for

I know some bloggers have set amount of words they like to write about but I just kind of free write.  I do love to add photos because I feel it makes the blog look prettier.

c972ea4131f7a286cff917b82884fc91 I bought a pair of Sanuk sandals yesterday.  Well I’m going to take them back and exchange them for the normal yoga sandal.

They hurt my toes and I need a bit support that the Yoga sling offers.  I just love Sanuk sandals.  Sanuk means “happy” in Thai which I didn’t know before yesterday.  So lesson learned, go with what you know and love!

Bag and Wander released their August box.  I really love this box and can’t wait to receive it.

The best email I received;


Your items from the Jared Padalecki’s “AKF – Part III” campaign is now printed and ready. Your order will now be folded, packaged and shipped to you shortly! We will let you know as soon as we ship it.

– Team Represent

I ordered a purple unisex fitted in purple.  The shipping was crazy expensive but I really wanted this shirt.  I’m going to always keep fighting and the purple is for Lupus.  a8fc320ee42bd6a0b1cc4b029ef19fb9

Thursday Birthday Thoughts

Thursday Thoughts
Thursday Thoughts

Today I’m joining Jen at Ramblings of a Suburban Mom for Thursday Thoughts

Well today I’m reflecting on me.  It’s my birthday and I wanted to do nothing today but relax, read and be in my hammock.  Life has other plans.  Hubby experienced 2nd and 3rd degree burns on his wrists from his motorcycle on July 4th all from running over a bungee cord. Due to a newfound latex allergy he didn’t heal.  He’s now on IV antibiotics.  We spent Tuesday at doctors and then the ER and then home care nurse came to house to set up the IV’s.  Well yesterday we learned that he needs to go to the clinic everyday to get the IV changed, the burns redressed and such.  He’s been my backbone throughout my illnesses that the least I can do is go to his 18:40 hour appointment with him.  I can have that glass of wine Hoodiewhen we get home.

He got me that awesome hoodie that has the SPF 50 in it.  Well it’s over in Michigan and it needs picking up.

I bought my daughter fish for her fish tank and well only two are one is still alive as of typing this.

I am a Brand Backer and started using OZ Naturals as part of face care.  I received it free and in part when it’s done I will give an honest review.  So my pre OZ face on my birthday it is.  I can put it on under moisturizer after cleaning and toner.

IMG_8887I’m enjoying my second cup of Barry’s Irish tea. The pupalups have gone back to sleep after a good morning mom hello.  Everyone else is sleeping.  I’m still in my pj’s because yeah I can do that.

Autoimmunity Update:  Well the cream for the Lupus rash seems to be working but any part of my body that gets sun even with SPF gets a rash.  This is not fun.  I ordered a Jared Padalecki #alwayskeepfighting t-shirt in purple for depression and lupus.

Check out Jared Padalecki’s Facebook post with his two cute kidlets in their


#AlwaysKeepFighting gear

I hope you have a wonderful day as I plan to with my family.

Birthday Wish – lots of likes and lots of comments on this post!

Enjoy your journey with me…mini2z
