Shut Your Mouth!

The much for announcing it at the end of the week!
Better late than never.

Comment #17

first, we missed you during screen free week, so glad your back! summer bucket list includes gardening (we doubled the size this year)...raising organice meat chickens (25 in all, some for us, some for my folks and some to donate to needy family), some kayaking and camping in our little pop up. Lots of family time!...that little chicken sure would look cute next to my computer while I work (I work from home 30 hours a week on my computer for an insurance company)...yep, sure would be cute! Peace to you, Jayme! ~Vonnie, NH

I trust you all had a lovely Mother's Day.
I know I did.
I had a whole feast planned.
A gluten free feast.
Chicken with Mushroom Sauce, Mashed Cauliflower, Green Beans with Bacon, White Bean and Tomato Salad, Flourless Chocolate Cake with berries.
The groceries were purchased, the plan was set.
However - I had some 'spell' that knocked me flat on my shapely behind.
I thought I was sick - like fever, cold, flu sick.
But I'm over it now - so it couldn't have been that.

I got really, really hot.
I got really nauseated, faint, dizzy,weak, shortness of breath and chest pains.
It lasted two days.
Did I go to the Dr.?  Um.  No.
Should I?  Ya.
Will I?  It'll have to get a lot worse first.
I happened to be ovulating at the time - so I'm thinking I'm starting to deal with some hormones here.

I cancelled dinner.
I did.
It was realllllly hard to do.
I also had to cancel on visiting a friend - which was extremely hard to do.
I abhor disappointing people.  I really do.
I had plans of honoring my sisters and mother-in-law with a lovely meal.

Genevieve, Glenco and Mwa.

We ended up eating out.
Here's some pics of the event.
I'm starting to think that it might be impossible to get a picture of me being serious, or with my mouth shut.

My poor gum to tooth ratio is seriously bothering me.
I'm ready to get the hot glue out.
I think my mom had it too - and it would explain the awkward smiles she has in most of her photos, kinda like this one.
Just another way I'm like my mom, and that makes me pretty danged proud.

Well gals, the weather is glorious and the to do list is long -
Have a happy Monday!

  1. I think your pictures are lovely and your nephew has one of the most beautiful smiles I have ever seen. (And trust me I work for a dentist and have seen a lot of smiles!)

  2. Looks like you guys had a great time at dinner!

    On a serous note... Please, please, please go to the doctor and have an ECG done. Soon. Up until a year and a half ago I worked as an EMT and the symptoms you mentioned are classic symptoms for women having a heart attack. I don't want to scare you but unusual chest pain especially along with other symptoms is nothing to mess around with. It's best to catch a heart attack (or the possibility of one) early. It's easier on you and the EMT's!

    Even if nothing shows up on the ECG at least you will have a baseline for the future.

    With all the physical changes your body has gone through the past year I know that it is in healing mode because you are eating well and exercising. But, there's always the possibility that the years that you've carried the extra weight may have done damage to the arteries.

    Please promise me you'll go and soon. Like I mentioned before, I don't want to scare you but I would be a lousy EMT if I didn't say something. You've come a long way baby and still have a long way to go! Take care of yourself so that you'll be around to help others achieve what you've achieved and to keep making us smile! (((HUGS)))

  3. @ Vanna.... I would love some info on the insurance work you do from home. Please and thank you! My email address is

  5. Even I thought "heart issues." Come on now, do it for all the people that love you. Don't be selfish.

  6. Hope all is better. Take care!~ Hey were u at El Taco Real? YUMM!!

  7. I got the same yucky sick thing last night.. had to leave a family gathering!.. I believe it's hormones too.. feel really drained today, that's for sure. We're at THAT AGE, don't ya know. So says my dr.
