Thrive update!

   I have been taking Thrive by Le-Vel for almost 3 weeks now. A lot of people have amazing results with Thrive starting on day one, or day 3 or day 6. They describe it as something like this (Repunzel, not Flynn/Eugene of course):

    I didn't have those results, however I do feel better. My mornings are WAAAY better than they used to be. I actually enjoy getting up in the morning. When my alarm goes off, I no longer want to curl up in a fetal position and cry. And yes, I would totally do that, almost every morning... It's sad. 
Now I'm awake before my alarm most days. I lay in bed and browse facebook until my alarm goes off, then I get up and get going. This morning I even got up early and did my workout, and here's the kicker, I enjoyed it!

   I still have a bit of down time in the afternoon, but I don't feel like sleeping all day everyday. I lay down for about 10-15 minutes when the kids have quiet time and I feel refreshed and ready to go again. I don't fall asleep, just lay and think.
   Although I haven't had the drastic change like others have had (yet), I am confident this product has helped me and I do recommend it to others to at least try, but I think you will be like me and end up really liking it. 

   Now go out and do something amazing!

Happy days all!

A truly terrible Tuesday

Oh my lands was yesterday a bad day. I think I can safely say it was the worst Tuesday of my entire life. It started out as a normal morning, I was in a great mood. I went out to feed, milk bucket in hand, singing along with pandora (sorry neighbors!). I noticed the animals weren't where they normally are in the morning, but didn't think much of it. I fed Mister and tossed some hay out for the goats and Rosemary wasn't there. That's weird. I continued on and fed Elmo and let the chickens loose then went on the search for Ol' Roses. I found her in the back corner of an old sauna on our property that the goats have claimed as their own.

Half a horse


  We're down to half a horse. It's a very sad thing, but it takes a lot of weight off our shoulders.
  We made the decision a few weeks ago to sell our mustang mare, Penny. She's a great horse, but we don't have any grassy pasture and horses eat a LOT. We couldn't justify the cost of hay with the amount of use we were able to get from Penny. Not because of her at all, but because we just didn't have the time to use her as often as we would have liked.

I'm (gonna be) Thrivin'

  A couple years ago my family switched from tons of processed foods, to close to none. It was a great switch. I lost over ten pounds! Ten pounds I had been fighting with since the babies were born.
  I felt healthier, mostly. However, since my third monster was born my energy levels have been dropping, and dropping and dropping. At first I thought I was being lazy. I pushed myself to get past this lazy stage and back to normal. It didn't work. The more I pushed myself the worse I felt. This wasn't just the lazies.
  I also considered the fact I am a mild hypochondriac. I had a bought with pneumonia last winter that was pretty rough. When the doctors did blood tests they came back with the possibility of lupus. The doctors monitored the inflammation around my heart and lungs and when it cleared up in a timely manner they were done and didn't do anymore lupus testing. One of the effects of lupus on the system is fatigue. It could all be in my head, but you would think I could push through it. I can't.

It's been a while...

I've been pretty silent in blog world lately. It's been a busy month so I haven't taken the time (not that I haven't had time, I just haven't made an effort...) to write a post.

I did it, I painted my bathroom floor...

I hate my old linoleum. Hate hate hate. I know it could be worse, I'm glad it's not since it goes through most of my house. I want to replace it, but I'm cheap and there are other things I would rather spend my $$ on. Like these minerals for my goats, but even those are way down the list.

So my ugly linoleum stays. Kind of...

I'll pass on the sick, thanks

My family is sick... They have been for quite a while now. Poor people. I have managed to mostly stay away from it though. That makes dealing with all the sick kids a lot easier. I'll admit it, I don't like to take care of other people or even the animals when I'm under the weather. It makes me grumpy and selfish. Shame on me... So it's really important for me to stay away from all the germs. Nobody likes a grumpy mama...
How have I managed to stay away from the worst of the sick? Simple, elderberry syrup.
