Updates and Finding My Peace During Chaos

Hey readers!

Sorry I haven’t been on here in awhile to talk to you guys. I am currently working on a new Novella in which I don’t yet have a release date for (you guys it’s coming soon, very soon). Managing life, kids, family and two businesses has been a challenge. I usually had tried to stop using my blog as a diary of sorts. But, how else would y’all get to know me? So here’s the scoop on what’s been going on lately with me…

Working to get on the Kidney Transplant list…sound simple right?

Far from it…My husband changed jobs and which means a change in insurance. New insurance requires me to go to a different transplant center at a different hospital and since the last time I did the testing was 2 years ago, I am having to repeat everything…all over again. Everything meaning an extensive blood test where they take 28 vials of blood from you to run every test under the sun. Then I had to have a heart stress test, which I must say was not fun and I felt totally crappy afterward. A chest x-ray, soooo many MRI’s then a pelvic scan and I’m sure I’m missing something, but you get the gist of things. So this because of scheduling I am booked out with appointments until July of this year. On top of my Son’s doctor appointments, my regular Kidney doc appointments and labs monthly I’ve been pretty busy.

Luckily here in Kansas City, Missouri it’s been pretty warm. It was a rainy patch there for awhile that prevented me from getting outside which I loooove to do in the Spring. We moved into the house we’re in now last Spring and it has some beautiful flowers in front planted by the previous owner, and various other plants. So I took to gardening last year. I used to garden with my Grandmother a lot when I was younger. She had two beautiful flower gardens in front of her house, and at the curb of her front yard that I would help her with and a vegetable garden in the back yard. I plan to do the same this year at our house since we have a small area in our backyard where I could grow things as well.

Another thing is just gaining focus with so much going on….my MIL moved in with us temporarily last week after he house had been water damaged. If any of you have ever experienced being a super introvert and having to have to take someone in…you pry get me so I’ll leave that one alone for now.

Just all in all, I try to go inside myself and go in my office to focus on creating as best I can with all this craziness and distractions. It’s important when life gets cray cray to try and find your little peace as best as possible so you don’t loose your ish.

I’ll check back in with you guys and maybe I’ll have another story coming up here shortly. Until next time…
