Stretched Thin

Good Tuesday Morning, Readers!   We found the newspaper clip from my first book signing.  I am begging you if you have read my book, please give me a review on Google, Amazon, or on the site where you purchased it.  Sales have been awful, so any help is much appreciated.   This week I have been super sick, but I have recovered.  The doctor tested me for Coronavirus, Flu, Streptococcus, and other bacteria, but all the tests were negative.  I do believe the old fashioned cold has made a comeback!  Having autoimmune diseases makes the common cold a nightmare because of the fatigue.  I am already tired all the time, so this past week I was a zombie.  It has rained so much this week that I haven’t been able to get out and walk, which has been a bummer!  On the upside, I am alive, and the RNC kicked off yesterday!   Last night I had the worst fight with my daughter.  It is so hard to live with your adult child while they are raising kids, but I do try to keep my mouth shut.  That is probably

Yucky Sick

Out of the blue I started having a little cough.  It got painful Monday night.  This morning I woke up and I could not breathe good.  So I went to my family doctor (he has an isolation room).   He did a nose swab but he said he didn’t have to go all the way back and really felt those test had too many false positives and false negatives.  He said this test would check for several things including coronavirus.  I do not have a fever and my lung xrays were all clear so he sent me home with horse pills.  I do believe folks have forgotten about the regular illnesses because of the coronavirus.  I feel like I have been drugged and beaten with a ball bat.  Yes, I had the flu shot.....So here is a reminder.  WASH YOUR HANDS!  If your sick (yes average sick) pretty, please stay home.  I had my mask on Monday at the MRI, so I pray no one catches what I got.  I am hereby staying home unless it is medically necessary that I leave.   Love~Laught-Truth Tina 

Time Flys

I apologize that it has been weeks since I wrote, but life has been busy.  Jackson started school, Alexandria went to work, and I spend my days with Baby Jeremiah.  Grandpa and I take turns feeding him and changing diapers, but it still takes more energy than we have most days.  By 6:00pm we are exhausted but I catch my second win as Jackson gets home so full of life and energy.    I have an update on Ashley.  She FaceTimed me, and today she brought the kids to Kai’s birthday party.  We are civil, and I make every effort to be positive and simply enjoy my grandchildren.   I am continuing to lose weight, so I am thrilled about that, and this weekend I trimmed my hair, dyed it back to my natural color, waxed my face, and got a new color for my dip nails.  It has been a year now since I went to a nail or beauty salon.   I honestly don’t remember the last time I sat in a restaurant and ate a meal.  99% of our meals are made at home, and groceries are brought through grocery pick-up.   My m
