Life Unscripted

It is Wednesday morning, I broke my rule about getting dressed even if I am just going to the bus stop and drove my son down in my night gown.  The side effects of my new medication are kicking my butt.  I saw my last specialist for a while.  I just have to now schedule and ultrasound and get some blood work done.  The blood work has to be done fasting, and I already feel nauseated so I am not ready to have blood drawn too.  Maybe next week.

One of the new medicines is also giving me terrible heart burn and indigestion on top of pre existing stomach issues.  If it doesn't stop I won't be able to take it.  The medicines are working though in less then a week my sugars have dropped from 265 fasting to 150-177 fasting....big improvement...and because of that difference at least five pounds have come off. 

I have looked around in my kitchen, and I guess today will be a make some home made snacks day because I am not shopping until Sunday and I am sure my husband would appreciate some snacks to go with his lunch for the next couple days.

I am making  homemade chocolate pudding popsicles.  I got the recipe here.  Brandy and her blog have been a great inspiration as I have shared before.

 I have some other things that I want to accomplish too but these side effects really slow me down. Friday starts spring break for my son....maybe if I can't get anything done today he can help me next week.  We shall see. 

I also wanted to share with you some information on another blog I discovered by accident when looking for some free printables to use and decorate my home.

This link has some suggested prayers to to pray over your husband.  I love it.  It was an answered prayer to find this because I have been admitting in my prayers that I am not sure how or what to pray for him.  I have looked around at some of the other messages and videos on this site as well and find them quite encouraging.  They also have free printable scripture art. 

By the end of the day I had to take my son to the doctor because his cheek has been swollen for two things he might have been bitten or stung by something.  I made spaghetti for dinner.  We survived the day.  It is now Thursday and I decided to skip the medicine that was hurting my stomach and feel alot better but the downside is the medicine was really working because my sugar was down to 138 this morning.  I am waiting for the doctor to call me back some time today so we can decide the best course of action.  I won't be making anything today.....just taking it easy and washing my sheets that is about about you?


  1. Sorry the medicine isn't agreeing with you. Hope you can get it straightened out. I'm sure your son will be a great help to you next week while he's off from school. Hope his cheek is ok

    1. Thanks for the well wishes! I am stopping the second medicine for a week to see if the issue I am having goes completely away. I am up early this a.m. to finish my tidying so that Spring Break can hopefully be mostly about fun, I hope to take the kids to see the new Cinderella movie. My son's cheek did seem better in the afternoon yesterday. What can I say, each day holds a new adventure or obstacle sometimes. I hope your week is going well.
