Now Playing: Day 2931-Chapter 3... Happiness~My Silver Lining
Why hello there!
Can you please tell me just where did the weekend go?
I feel like it's still Friday, yet here we are getting ready to start another week. GEES! I have a hunch that this year is just going to fly by! So many exciting things that will be taking place in my life. Our life. Our little families life.
Talking about our little family... here is a rare photo of the four musketeers enjoying a late breakfast before lounging away a very lazy Sunday. Too darn adorable! I am so glad that everyone is finally getting along. We knew that it might take a bit of time since Sweetie and Papa are neighborhood kitties taking shelter in our home during the cold winter months. I am certain they will be more than ready to be back outdoors this spring. They both had already been neutered and spayed as well received their vaccines through various neuter programs offered by our local shelters. So much love goes around our little, lazy, river town towards all those who are looking for food, shelter and a little love. Needless to say... of course they get more than just a little love in our household! They get a whole lotta love!
Since this gal is still on the early bird gets the worm sleep schedule. It's been a wonderful opportunity to get daily household chores and errands done super early! Same with cooking in the early afternoon hours so dinner is ready for Eric to take to work. More than a few days worth of super healthy choices such as various ways to enjoy fish and veggies! We still do our best to make sure to consume healthy foods and beverages. Regardless of any existing medical problems. It's still important to do your very best to take care of your body. I have always believed that fast food leads to a fast life. The inability to live a very long life. Food is the way of life. Consider your body a fine tune machine of sorts. Eat to live the best life possible! Not live to eat away your life in the shortest and most unhealthiest way possible. Gastroparesis or not... there are more than enough ways to find what works best for you through trial and error. Healthy options that are GI friendly! Each and every patient is truly unique. So is each and every diet. But regardless... keep it healthy! Your body will not only thank you later, but so will your soul!
Today's fish is tilapia with oriental veggies, pepper and a garlic sauce made with fat-free yogurt. Super easy to make! But most importantly... it's super healthy! YUMMY!
Over the past few weeks, we have literally been cleaning house! An old saying, but for us, we really mean it while making another trip this evening to drop off donated clothes and other gently used items. A small Mom & Pop consignment store in town that many families visit year round. With such a frigid start to the winter season. There are a lot of families that have to cut back in order to stay warm. Utility bills that have literally doubled over the past few months. We all can do something to help one another out during the remaining cold winter months. To me... there just isn't any reason what-so-ever that everyone can't pitch in and help each other out when times are tough. Together... we really can move mountains!
When talking about moving mountains... it seems as if I am moving my own mountains when it comes to realizing the dream of a new website. This blog has beyond surpassed any and all of my expectations. In all reality, this blog was just a means for me to express myself over the years through trials and tribulations. It wasn't about numbers. It wasn't about followers. It wasn't about any type of expectation what-so-ever. It was just a way for me to vent about all of life's ups and downs, ins and outs. I never expected to literally be making such a huge step as what is about to transpire over the next several months. Not only is the new home for this blog almost finally complete. But I am super excited to announce that it will be available on Google Play and the App Store!
FINALLY! Not only does the new software allow for endless photos and videos, but also audio. I am super excited to announce the new podcast-blogcast website very, very soon! It's been a lot of hard work finding the perfect new home for this blog. It's also taking a lot longer than expected. I had forgotten just how time consuming and sometimes very difficult it is to literally design and build an entire website from scratch. Myself and Eric are not quite sure which way to go as far as the Gastroparesis Awareness Campaign website. The website itself has not only surpassed any and all expectations of it's very own. But it literally provides over 100,000+ web server requests on a monthly basis. Crazy isn't it?! Another idea in the making, many years ago, after feeling as if I was battling Gastroparesis alone. Not one other Gastroparesis Awareness organization exists that solely continues to offer free help and assistance to all Gastroparesis patients, their family, friends and even health care professionals. I would really love to also evolve the website and mesh it together as one with the new podcast-blogcast. But as for now, the current home for the Gastroparesis Awareness Campaign Organization will remain.
One blog, one picture, one audio, one video and a whole lot of podcast-blogcast smiles and plenty of laughter to soon share with everyone!
