Weigh In

Todays weigh in showed a loss of 2.8 pounds bringing the total so far to a bit over 13.. I am assuming i will actually notice a difference with another 10-15 pounds but so far this is great.

I am learning that my eating is really a mental problem right now. I can do this.

This afternoon I had WW English Muffins with mozzarella cheese and tomato's..yummy. I have a new WW buddy, Erika who is a member of our small group. We met at Applebees and ate off of the WW menu. My tilapia rocked.

Anyway, I am having some strawberry shortcake tonight and I will still short points. I was able to subtract a point from my daily total which is fabulous.

Poor Michael has the flu, the nasty flu after he got the vaccine. The flu is bad this year and hoping it will end soon.

Thanks for praying today guys. Hoping to hit the gym tomorrow.

Today I found out that my weekends are going from a Friday/Sat weekend to a Friday/Sunday weekend meaning I will always be awake from church! WooHoo

2pm today peeps

Please join me at 2pm Atlanta time to pray for Nate, Tricia and their sweet baby Gwenyth Rose
Let's talk to God together. What a cool thing!

Sunday, March 30, 2008


****** Pray for CFhusband and Tricia***** she may be getting her new lungs! Oh my gosh, this is better than any post. If you have not been to visit. Pray Pray Pray! I love this family and I do not even know them. What a story they have!!
*** update, the lungs are no good, no transplant today but we are having prayer time at 2pm for this family. Head over to !!!

Back to your regularly scheduled blog post!
Hello friends and whoever else that reads this?

Friday night I made Trader Joes tilapia with risotto and a veggie

Saturday I was off and had TJ orange chicken with brown rice. Michael loved it. The dude at TJ said this was their most popular product and I can see why.

Sunday. no breakfast. woke up late. Went with Michael to a bookstore volunteer luncheon at the church and had a nice time watching people. They had lasagna, breadsticks, salad and cookies. I was good and had salad and the Italian dressing with one breadstick.

Snack- WW cookie dough Sundae..Yummy

Dinner- Shrimp stir fry with added chicken breast. Iced tea or water..

Poor Michael. We thought he had allergies but he is down right sick. Coughed almost the entire service. If I had known he was so sick, I would not have pushed him to go to church. It was nice to be back though.

Hes been resting and will be the rest of the night. I leave at 11 for work tonight and tomorrow is weigh in. Although I have followed the program (even using my extra free points last Wed) I feel very full and know I have not lost like the last 2 weeks. That's okay. We are working on new lifestyle so this is okay.

Whats new with y'all???

Tomorrow, no breakfast as I get off work at then hit WI at 10am. Lunch and dinner with friends with Weight Watcher menu restaurants.

You guys rock!

3 word Sunday

Each week if I remember, I will post a pic and 3 words that describe my week. Im not sure who started this, but its really taken off so I thought I would join. Usually you dont write this much since its my first time, I thought I would break the rules. I will do better next week and its hard to see my 3 words but

This is sweet but sassy and naughty Lucy with sick Michael snoozing!

food and weight watchers

Ok, so this Weight Watcher thing may work. its really not that hard, yet. I think the easiest thing for me to do with this will be planning meals and snacks according to work and social stuff and incorporating drinking water and exercising.

Tonight, we had a total Trader Joes dinner with orange chicken, brown rice and Asian veggies. For those of you who have done weight watchers, it was 11 points, and I still have 10 points for the rest of the evening.

I will probably journal some of my meals and stuff. I have found tons of WW bloggers and getting some great ideas. So Monday will be weight in number 3, and as long as I don't gain, I will be okay. I know that I will eventually get to no lose weeks or just a pound or 2.

We have 4 weeks until our cruise and I plan on doing well until then and enjoying the cruise. I should be in good habit by then and will probably feel guilty if I eat too much.

If you are a new reader feel free to leave me your favorite meals and snacks and points.

Rock on! Good bye fluff!

Little boy still in ICU, will check on him tonight

The resident dr apparently looked for me Tuesday morning and was vey ugly to the other RNs. I was helping with an IV on the other side of the floor and she said." I dont care who she is and what shes doing, when I need her, I expect her to be here pronto. Tell her I need her now!!!

Well, I mentioned it to the charge nurse and the Chief MD took care of it and she is no longer allowed to work at the hospital..

If you have no idea what I am talking about, see below

Monday, March 24, 2008

Long post

See title and scroll down for this weeks weight loss!

Ok, worked Thursday, Fri and Saturday night. Still doing WW, going well. Anyway. Thursday night perfectly fine. Friday night, fine. Admitted a little boy with decreased drinking. had some other issues but still should have been an easy admission. At 6am, he had his very first seizure. Ok, pretty scary. Actually, very scary,especially to a family who has never seen them. But I am a seizure nurse, and we dealt with it. Parents were very anxious. Physician was in to talk to them. Rude resident came in and said, "Before this nurse decides to talk again, let me just tell you that i think this is the beginning of a seizure disorder. this is what you need to remember but, Ill let the neurologist come in and talk to you. Ok, talk about stressing a mom out. I was soooo angry I had to leave the room. I had spent hours developing a relationship with this mom, she was starting to calm down and this resident just freaked her out. Ok, Greys fan? Had the demeanor of Christina. Ugh. That stressed me out. He was a sick boy, but I was ready to go home.

Saturday night, I come in and find out he has had no seizures and a pretty good day. Still a bit lethargic or sick looking, but not so worried. 3am, we have another seizure, 4am, not looking good. By 5am, I am getting a bit worried and have already called 2 doctors and I am now calling the pediatrician in the hospital to come take a look. Now I am actually worried. She comes in and sees him and says this is not good. 30 seconds later, we call a code blue and within 10 minutes he is intubated and on his way to the ICU. What makes me sad, is during all of this, I didn't get to talk to mom until we are in ICU. More stress but he's in ICU and has the right people near him.

I get home and its Easter and I am sad and tired and anxious and just exhausted. I make the choice not to go to the 930 Easter service but still make my commitment to the nursery at church. Ok, the guilt kicked in but I know if I sat in the service I would have fallen asleep. Oh I am sooo sad because I love my church and I haven't been in a long time.

So thats my weekend. I am heading back to work, will go check on my sweet family and hopefully have an uneventful shift.

So we head out to church as we are both volunteering and head over to my China room (ages 6-12 months) but someone asks me to switch to the Australia room (12-18 months). Ok this worked out well. I had a blast for 90 minutes. I think I may be the craziest nursery volunteer as I played and sang and read books and colored and got a lot of happy belly laughs. It made my day. I now have new friends like Cameron, Emma, EmmaClaire, Braelyn, Calyn, Lucy (my favorite), Aaron and others.

ON the way home, we hit Taco Bell for lunch and I got some of the new Fresco (WW friendly) menu items. Not bad. Michael's family celebrates Greek Easter so it was just the 2 of us. I took a long nap and woke up to lamb and orzo (Greek tradition) made by my Michael. Seriously, this is the best lamb I have ever had (better than the Brazilian Steak Houses). way to go Michael. We watched some TV and went to bed.

My thoughts. Most of you know I am random so if you feel like trying to follow along, peace out. I love Easter. I love the fact that we get together around the world ans celebrate the resurrection of Christ. The fact that this happened is the reason I have the promise of eternal life. I do wonder though, why I don't celebrate it daily. The fact that Christ suffered the way He did so that I may be free, is something I can not fathom. His mother and friends had to watch his face as he took this pain, makes me sad. More than sad. The fact that a God who loves me (yes me) so much that he allowed His only son to die for the world. Thats bigger than big. That kind of love is too big for us not to acknowledge. Oh, I am a sinner and I am ashamed of things I have done and things I have thought. But to give up a child that you love, I just can not comprehend the gift I was given.

warning: another random thought
One emotion I struggle with is jealousy. I hate it. I really truly despise this emotion. I have struggled with it all my life. One of the things I have learned is when you experience jealousy, that emotion robs you of the opportunity to love and serve God. That makes me stop and think. One of the things I get jealous of his other believers. Huh, you may say? I sometimes feel that other believers are just spiritually better than me. Know what I am saying? They just seem to have it all together. They pray, they are positive, they are encouraging, they just rock. I know better. I dont know why I feel like this. I know its the way I perceive things and it just sucks. And because of my nasty jealousy, I miss out on my strengthening my wonderful friendships. Sometimes I almost feel like friends are trying to make me feel bad. I told yall on my first post I was odd but I wanted to keep this real. And I know my friends dont do that, but sometimes it just seems like that. I hate feeling like that.

Not sure why I am actually thinking about all of this right now. That emotion hasn't been around in quite a while. I think this adoption thing has really help. Ive been surrounded my awesome friends who get us. Friends who share some of the same fears, wishes, hopes and dreams as me.

I want to be better. A better child of God. A better wife. A better friend. A better sister. A better daughter. I no longer desire to be lazy. I want to make sure I take the time to get to know the people in my life. I want to embrace every moment, even the ones that dont seem that important. Because it is in those moments, I tend to hear God's whispers. To think the God of the universe wants to talk to me, is just the coolest thing ever.

I know some of you do not share the same beliefs as me and I know some of you are kind of studying this whole God and Christianity thing. Its more than just church or the type of worship you prefer, it just God. Getting to know God and letting Him have your heart. Its taken me 33 years to realize just how awesome my Heavenly Father is. I hope you will talk to Him.

Im ready to be honest. To be real. I want that peace that I have experienced before. When you are no longer hiding things in your heart. This is random. Sometimes I am like that. Hence the title of my blog.

You wanted to know me. Thats a part of me.

Comment Game

Its the weekend. Ill be working.
Lets play the comment game like we did at Christmas time

Here's how it goes: I'll start the game off in the comments section by choosing two words or phrases, like coffee or tea, and which ever one you prefer you choose. You can also explain why. When you have done that you do two new words or phrases for the next commenter to choose from. Feel free to come back as often as you like. Just have fun.

My visit to Trader Joes

Ok, for some reason, I decided to head on over to Trader Joe's in the rain. I have been looking forward to it and I had a good time. I decided to walk around and take it in before putting anything in my cart. I started talking to a gentleman about the things on my recommended list. He thing proceeded to embarrass me hollering " we have a first timer". Nice guy though. Okay. so its not as big as I thought it would be but dang its a neat store.

I got almost everything on my list except the chicken skewers which were the only thing that was a bit pricey. Seriously, this store is ridiculously inexpensive. So the pics above are what I bought, all for less than 50 bucks and that's a lot of food. Cant wait to go back, but it wont be a daily or weekly thing. I'll have to see what I like and what works for points. There is a cool shrimp stir fry and the whole bag is like 12 points. Wowsers!!! For those not on WW, that's pretty good!

So that's about it for now. This morning I had Special K almond vanilla cereal with FF milk and a banana. Time for Water..

Rock On!

Wednesday, March 19, 2008

Picture and TJ

This is what happens when you try to change eating habits. I threw out 5 bags of stuff from the pantry, fridge and freezer.
On another note, I decided to visit Trader Joes for the first time today. Anyone have any recommendations?

WW- week one

5.8- the amount of weight I lost this week on WW. Could have been more but I drank almost a gallon of water last night at work and then weighed right afterwards. Not bad though, I do know that most weeks will not even be half of that, so I am off to a good start

75 dollars- the gas card that my employer sent each employee to help out with gas prices

Good day and I still have 34 points to eat before tomorrow morning
Okay,here is a question I thought about while getting gas on the way to work.

When they started making cars did they decide to alternate which side to put the gas?
WHy? Is it to help traffic in the gas stations?

Does anyone else ever think of things like this?

Told you I was odd

Now here is an interesting verse I read this morning

Proverbs 15:17
Better a meal of vegetables where there is love than a fattened calf with hatred.

Gotta love it!

As we read Psalms last week, I kept singing Chris Tomlin songs out loud. its amazing how many songs are taken directly from the scripture, go figure!!!! Anyway, singing to Psalms is fun, try it!

I hope each of you is having a great day. Hope to have more meaningful posts soon!

Womens Retreat

Seriously. Great time.

Started with a meet up at the church and arranged car pools. The people I rode with rock! Hi girls!

We had a blast driving up and we found a cute little diner to eat dinner. After dinner as we got close to the retreat place, we saw a deer. We slowed down and turned the lights on and then we saw 8 deer! In the fog and totally beautiful! Soooo cool. It was like God was saying "hello my children, I am here and ready to talk to you! It was just one of many cool moments. Lots of singing and worshipping and sometimes things didn't go the way we wanted but boy, God was everywhere.

What did I learn? Hmmmm, God wants an intimate relationship with me. Me! How cool is that? I really think that everyone heard Him differently, which is the way it is supposed to be. Anyway, I just find it awesome that the God who created me in such an intricate way, wants to be my friend. We were encouraged to pray about everything, not to hesitate at all. When things just come to your mind and you have no idea why , just pray about it. Talk to Him like you would a friend. He knows your heart, no need to hide things from him. I think when you can get to the point where you are really honest with him, you find peace. And that my friends, is an awesome feeling.

I learned that people who once seriously intimidated me are no better than me. I sometimes have felt that there are some church members (this is not just my church, this has been at any church I have ever attended) who are just so much spiritually better than me. What a yucky attitude. We are all sinners and are all working to be closer to God. If this doesn't make sense, I am sorry. We talked about how sometimes its hard to be friends. Friendships take time and energy. Unconditional friendship and not only do I want unconditional friends, I want to be an unconditional friend to others.

Lisa Whelchel also talked to us about meditating on scripture. She gave us some examples of verses and how she chooses a word that she finds interesting and just prays about it, thinks about its meaning, how its used in the bible and how it relates to her. It was quite eye opening and I appreciate it.
I made some new friends and its cool how some of our lives interact in such ways that its amazing that I had never met these people.

I was very hesitant to go. Ladies, if you ever have the opportunity, GO. Sign up. Arrange your schedule. Plan on being blessed.

WW Day one

Weight Watchers Day 1- SUCCESSFUL! Yippee! and that included dinner at trivia!

Day 2 has begun and so far I have been to the gym and had a lovely breakfast and hit the grocery store..

Any of you done the WW thing? Feel free to share your favorite foods and points and stuff.....

Tuesday, March 11, 2008

It all begins today

That's right friends. Today, Tuesday, the defluffination begins. I joined Weight Watchers yesterday and got a ton of info. Had my 5 points for breakfast (2 low fat waffles, 1tbs light syrup and a nana) and the rest of the day is planned out.

Anyone else ever done WW? Need help and suggestions. I'm still missing 10 points for today..Holy cow.

You will in fact never know my actual weight but I will give you guys updates.. the plan is do this strong for 7 weeks and then we cruise for a week and then get back on it. I wont totally screw it up while visiting Mickey and his friend, but also want to stay away from stress..

Pray for me guys! Might sound like a silly prayer to some of you but I need it!

Spiritual Saturation

Interesting phrase but I get this.. This weekend, God just poured his love and grace on this retreat. I mean, he poured buckets on us. I have never experienced any thing like this. My new friend gave me this phrase and explained to me that she feels like a sponge and just needs to soak this all of this amazing stuff that happened. I could not agree more. As much as I want to share the entire weekend for you, I do believe that sometimes God gives you moments just between you and Him.

I too, want to soak this in and spend some more time pondering the things I have learned. I will share some things in the next couple of days but I do want to spend time talking to my God and remembering everything He has promised!

If you feel like it, pray that what I have learned will not be a weekend retreat thing, but a life changing journey.

Friday, March 07, 2008

See ya

I am off on a womens retreat for the weekend. Our speaker is Lisa Whelchel or Blaire from Facts of Life. Should be a hoot. Hope you get the chance to see the pics below. Michael took some amazing pics of tigers in the Memphis zoo. Its so nice to have my own personal photographer..

See ya Monday!

Memphis trip

Simply a great weekend

This weekend was a time of reflecting, remembering and just having fun. We have been planning a long weekend to Memphis for several weeks now.

Thursday morning we got up pretty early and headed to TN. Had lunch at Cracker Barrel and stopped several times before making a stop in Jackson to see my old college Union Univ, which was torn up by a massive string of tornadoes just a few weeks ago. Wow! My old dorms have been demolished and there is nothing there but dirt. We talked to a student there and by seeing the campus (which has already had a massive clean up) its a miracle that everyone survived. My heart still goes to all of those out of state students who did not have their family to support them.

We continued to drive to Memphis. We checked into our hotel (Fairfield) and had dinner at O'Charleys. This is very important because this was my favorite place to eat while in college. Seriously, the only thing I have ordered there were the Chicken O'Tenders and you must emphasize the O when ordering. Its a rule. We spent some time chilling out and we had a visitor at the hotel. Mr. Steven (yes the blogging Steven) came and chatted with us while bringing some Aleve for my toothache. We chatted for quite a while about Union, church, blogging and a ton of other things.. We were actually told to quiet down. Can you imagine someone telling me to quiet down? Geesh. To bed we went.

The next day we woke up realizing we slept for almost 10 hours...Wow, that was cool. It was pretty yucky outside. This was the day we planned to do the zoo and so far it wasn't looking good. We got several phone calls from friends trying to organize dinner and we got a late start. Its a really good thing we decided to go to the zoo because it was a PERFECT day for the zoo. There was about 40 people total there and all the animals were out. As you can see from the slide show, Michael took some amazing pics. I had an awesome experience. We walked up to the chimp area and went up to the glass window where my new friend was waiting for me. Seriously. I have never been so close. It rocked. Ok, so I got a bit silly and got on the ground so that I was face to face with this monkey. I was on the ground looking eye to eye with this monkey. The first thing I noticed were his hands and then he started playing. I really thought I was having an encounter with ET. I put my finger on the glass, and he would try to kiss it. Check out Michael's pics. it seriously was a very cool experience.
So Friday night, we went for some Memphis BBQ and went to Corkys. So we got to see old Atlanta friends, Jeff and Val (valfrey), Stevens wife jenny and his 2 boys and my old roommie LeeAnne, her hubby and 2 girls. We spend the time eating, laughing and just truly having fun. Oh I miss my college times.

Saturday morning, we planned a Red Thread meeting at IHOP. Deanna, who was logged in the same month as me and is active in our yahoo group, organized a breakfast with some families. The red thread continued as Michael and Deanna shared about where they were from. One of the ladies started talking about the Ladmans, who are First Friday friends of ours..It was cool.
After breakfast, we went to Tunica for the afternoon. I am not afraid to say that. I was in yucky mood but after getting some sugar, I played for a bit and the we left..It was quite different than what I expected.
Saturday, we waited 45 minutes to get into Texas Roadhouse. Odd experience as Michael had to send his steak back twice but in the end we got a free meal.Back to the hotel we went where Wedding Crashers and Napolean Dynamite was playing.

The plan was for Sunday to go to church with Steven and his family. We didn't go. Instead, we went to Cracker Barrel with Jeff and Val and had a really odd experience. If any lady bug lovers are out there, check out Cracker Barrel..The stuff is too cute!
After that we went to downtown Memphis to find an Asian art exhibit. So before that, we walked around Bealle street and went to the top of the Peabody and saw the awesome view. Back to the art exhibit, one of the China moms told us about it and I am so glad they did. It was a wonderful exhibit and gave me more of a passion for the Chinese culture..Once again, too cool! Boy, it just hit me that this was a really busy day.

After Memphis, we drove to Jackson so see a college professor of mine and her sons Dalton and Jared. You see while in college, I was the primary babysitter for Dalton from age 8 months- 3 years. As I told Jenni leigh, the night I left Dalton the last time, was a very hard night. I don't remember crying that much. HE used to call me AA. We walked in to Chuckie Cheese, and this 12 year old came up saying, AA? He gave me a hug and we just talked. He decided that since I made him dance to Barney, he is now into drama. He said, thanks a lot! We talked about Dino, a stuffed dinosaur pillow that he had to sleep with every day. As we were leaving, he brought Dino out to show me. Oh he is warn out, but I could just picture Dalton a little boy with his "DOH". I was the one who was supposed to have an impact on, I swear I think it was the other way around.

After our Chuckie Cheese Adventure, we headed over the Casey Jones Village to buy some sauce for Michaels dad.

Then we met some more friends at Olive Garden. First was Sara, my most stable friend. Sara is a fun, crazy, responsible lawyer who was a roommate of Valerie (wife of Jeff). We actually stayed with her on a trip.

So towards the end of dinner, Miss Lorrie Spickard came in with her boyfriend. Lorrie has been one of my closest friends of all times. She was in my wedding. I absolutely adore her. We had not seen each other for almost 4 years but dang, it sure did not feel like it. It was just sooo cool to laugh and share experiences with my good friend. We stayed for hours. We love her boyfriend and Lorrie just made me smile. We talked about short term mission trip with Steven and other people, and the fact that we had so many late night talks. This was soooo cool! We have had some trials in our friendship, but we always come out stronger.

Back to the hotel, for some online time and some needed rest. I was afraid we would be sleep until noon, but that lovely sun woke us up.

Pics coming momentarily

Tuesday entry

I am waiting to post my long entry on our weekend until I get the slide show done. We did have a good time.

Thanks to all who answered the question below. Interesting answers.

I am presently reading Blue Like Jazz and I am intentionally reading it slowly as not to miss the authors thoughts. What a great book!

Check out our Memphis zoo pics over at Michaels blog and scroll down until you see Saturday. He took some awesome shots.

Glad to be home. Lucy is glad to be home although her voice really changed. I soo dont recognize this new bark of hers.

Until tomorrow.

Have a fantabulous day!

Here is another question for you.

If you had to only have one book of the Bible for one year, which one would you choose?
ask that because we are reading a book of the Bible each week and each week I learn something awesome. Esther is an awesome book. Talk about being in the right place at the right time. Now, on to Job.

Seriously, if you have not read the Bible since you were in little kid Sunday school, try it. I am seeing things in a whole new light. God is amazing. So many things are still so relevant, its craziness I tell ya.
