....sorry. Life has a way of getting in the way sometimes. My kiddo is a 9 year old who has a busy life haha.
Today, I come to you very frustrated. Not sure how else to explain it. Oh, wait. Maybe MAD and excuse my language but PISSED OFF. Why? Well, Last summer, wasn't like any other summer in my life. I did a lot of the same things we always do. When May 1 hit, I started planting a garden. My Granddaddy always said to wait until May to plant one because of frost. So, like a good little girl, once May came, I eagerly started to till the garden area. Everything was planted and life was good.
Fast forward to June. We went on vacation and when I returned the garden was a mess. I spent days out there getting it under control.
It amazes me how much a garden can grow in a weeks time.
July comes and everyone is excited about the upcoming holiday. We had plans to go to a party. I made a yummy strawberry pretzel salad. I had this annoying bug bite. It was HUGE. I assumed it was a mosquito bite because I tend to swell up pretty bad with them. I got concerned about it bc it didn't seem to be getting better. Matter of fact, it was very hot to the touch. A dear friend grew concerned. I started questioning this bite. Decided to draw a circle around it to see if it got larger. Brown Recluse Spiders are bad here so it was a concern from others that maybe that's what it is. My hunch told me otherwise.
Fast forward to today. I AM MAD. For months now I have had this horrible calf muscle tightness, plantar fasciitis and IT Band issues. LEFT LEG only. I have done everything "they" say to do. I bought new shoes and it did help with the plantar fasciitis. I use a foam roller. I am told, "it's overuse" and maybe I should "rest". REST???? ughhhhhhhhhhh. NO. I am not that old dang it. I have muscle tremors and my knees "give out" all of a sudden. THIS never happened before.
I guess I am so mad bc the testing isn't accurate, the treatment isn't that great, and doctors here believe Lyme Disease "isn't suppose to be here". I am not mad that I have it. Really. What makes me so special? If someone can get it, why not me? At this point, I just want a CURE. It's a freaking bacteria. Why can't we kill the little sh*ts? COMPLETELY. Not a little at a time, all of them. I've done my research. I know about bio film, and all that. We can send a man to the moon but we can't kill off a freaking spirochete and keep it from crippling people or worse, killing them? We can cure cancers but not this?? Really??? Yeah. I am a LITTLE frustrated today.
Going to take a bath is Epson Salt and Essential Oils. Carry on and someone please figure out how to make our CDC tackle this and admit their wrong and have been wrong. Make them accountable and actually want to treat this disease like it should be.

....with a broken finger! Yes. You read that right. My son broke his finger yesterday while playing soccer.
He didn't tell anyone, not even me, when it happened. He waited until he was returning his library books and tells me,"I hurt my finger playing soccer!" I look at it and immediately went into "mommy panic mode".
So X-rays we had. Nothing really showed up.....which they tell me is normal for hairline fractures.
Isn't that little hand sweet?
So, to make a long story short, my child has a hairline fracture in the top of his finger. Yesterday, he had more movement in it. Today, if you say you want to look at it he panics bc he can't even dress himself or touch anything with that hand without tears. :(
What does one do when they break a bone?Well, Taekwondo belt graduation of course! He refused to miss it. He was getting that next belt. His goal is to be a black belt. Before today, he had 15 belts to go. Yes, he's counted.
Push ups anyone?
Please don't break another bone.....
Trying to flip Corey with a brown finger is tough.
You're going down!
Broke boards with a side kick and jumping elbow. wtg little man!
He said he wasn't giving up bc he broke his finger! He knew he could do it and "God has faith in me!" ❤️ Sweetest little boy in the world. 14 belts to go!
I earned these boards mom!
Enough with being serious. Hahahahahaha
This was his finger after icing it a while. Poor baby.
Monday is Field Day at school. Maybe I should bubble wrap him.....

Many don't know, but I'm a Young Living Essential Oil distributor. I love essential oils, especially Young Living. I use so many of them. My husband uses Peppermint oil almost daily. He suffers from allergies(gotta love Ky allergies) & doesn't want to rely on drugs. He places peppermint oil behind his ears and on his temples at night. He breathes better and when he wakes up, is able to "clear out".
Persoanlly, I use Thieves oil and cleaner almost daily.
I also rely on oil of oregano during cold and flu season. I fill a clear capsule with it and Thieves oil and take it orally. Kicks it and I never get that, "I've been hit by a bus" feeling.
I make our own "Vicks" using coconut oil, eucalyptus, peppermint, and RC oil. I rub it on my sons chest and feet so he breathes better. I diffuse these oils too! Love my diffusers!
These are my favorites. If you'd like to look at products, please visit my site and ask questions as needed. I love these oils and products and I'm positive others will too!

Say it isn't so! His 1st day of 2nd grade doesn't seem like it was all that long ago. How he's changed since August of 2013!
He has had such a great year. In a few weeks, he will be a 3rd grader.
I still think he should be this little. Look at my sweet baby :( enjoy your babies. They grow so so fast.
Aiden helping a classmate, Kendall. I've grown very fond of this little girl. She's such a sweetheart. I seem to get attached to kids in his class.
I made this teacher supply cake for his teacher for Teacher Appreciation Week. That's this week :)
This one was made for another teacher who I've grown fond of. She's super sweet.
2 weeks old.....2 weeks!! cutest baby boy in the world.
My big boy now!
How this year has went by so fast....baffles me.

...summer is almost here?
Baseball has started! Look at my little man. His pocket inside out, shoes laces untied, but he's got his arm up and he's ready to go.
Waiting to run run run!
Hey batter batter batter.....
Admit it. Cutest little catcher ever!
See? Told ya.
Sticking your tongue out makes you hit the ball....every single time.
He's got this.
It sure keeps us busy but oh how we enjoy watching him play. He's having a ball.

I am not quite sure how it happened. One day, I had a 6lb 9oz baby boy, and today I have a 2nd grader. He's growing into a remarkable young man. I am so proud of him.
He's volunteering at school in the garden here. Shoes untied, but he doesn't care. Must get the leaves out of the rocks!
Sweeping the Dojang. A ninja must have a clean place to kick some butt
His 8th birthday was spent at the bowling alley with lots of friends. He had so much fun. So thankful that he has amazing friends in his life.
Practicing for the Talent show at school! They did an amazing job! So proud of these boys. Look how high my kid can kick!
This boy is something else ❤️ handsome, sweet, rotten, the love of my life.
See? Isn't he goofy?!
What a year it's been! I can't believe his 2nd grade year is almost over. It seems like it just started.
He was teacher for a day!
The cutest Harry Potter ever!
One hilarious Uncle Si!
Kicked butt at a martial arts tournament!
Went to XO camp
Played some basketball
Fell in love with a pet (this is Patches, his kitty that we bottle fed from 4wks old)
Did some sparring
Read lots of books ❤️
Was the most handsome little dude at Easter
Supported our Wildcats!
