Blogging Hiatus

Happy Monday Lovelies! 

You may have noticed my absence over the past couple of weeks!  There have been a lot of changes in the N household.  It's been a little Cray-Cray.  I'm not at liberty to get into any of the details right now, but in a few weeks I should be able to.  For now all I can say is, God is good - all the time, even when  especially when we don't understand at the time.

I don't know what is going to happen to my little space here.  My internet time has been cut to a fraction of what it used to be.  Once I am able to get used to my new schedule and form a new routine, I hope to be able to fit blogging back into my life somewhere!

A short update on life.

My Bell's Palsy is basically cured.  This Morning I put in my first pair of contacts in 17 days!  I don't mind wearing glasses every so often, but boy I despise wearing them every day.  I'm fairly certain that the chiropractic adjustments that I had helped the most.  I was also taking some pretty heavy doses of my multi vitamin, and some extra vitamin b to help the nerve regenerate.  I did end up taking the steroids that were prescribed, mainly because the MR. wanted me to, but if it happened again, I'm not sure that I would.  My face broke out something awful last week.  I have these little bumps all around my mouth.  I googled it (of course!) and I found that this could be an adverse reaction to coming off steroids, even though I was only on them for 6 days.

I hit black ice on my way into work last Wednesday.  It was terrifying.  I've experienced driving in snow and slippery conditions before when I lived up north,  but I have never experienced black ice.  I watched the truck ahead of me swerve off the road into the ditch, so I knew to be careful and not hit my breaks.  As soon as that thought crossed my mind, I also had started to spin. 

Driving to work this morning I realized just how fortunate I am that I slid into that particular place.  If I had been on another road or in numerous other places on the road I was on, I could have easily flipped my car.  Thankfully my MR. & the Man that works for us came to my rescue and where able to pull my car out.  I'm fine (other than some back twinges that the chiropractor will straighten out today), and my car is fine.  In fact, my car drives better than it did before it made friends with the ditch! 
I did learn that there are some people that are not sympathetic to a girl in heels and a skirt trying to climb out of a ditch.  Then there are other people that have compassion.  While trying to climb out of the ditch, I had one truck that stopped to see of the other guy was ok, and then just drove right past me -- jerk.  As I was standing on the side of the road fuming about that, a sweet lady pulled over and offered to let me sit in her car where it was warm until help arrived.  I don't think we ever did exchange names, but we had great conversation for the next 30 minutes, and I am so thankful for her, because otherwise I would have froze standing in the freezing rain & wind.  So, to the Manager that works at Walmart, I am so, so grateful for you! 
My Nephew, Korben, came home from the hospital last Monday after his 3 week stay in the NICU.  He has healed wonderfully, and everything seems to be ok!   My other nephew Sawyer is 1 month old today!  They get big way to quick, don't they?
I found out shortly after we got married that the pill form of birth control is the devil, and went off it ASAP.  I track my cycles using the FAM method, which means I take my temperature every morning and chart them, along with being aware of other signs of fertility.  At this point the Mr & I are trying to avoid getting pregnant.  I noticed that the end of my cycle, after you ovulate is only about 10 days, when it should be 14.  I asked my Dr about it and He told me that it isn't something to be concerned about, it just mean that I will have to take progesterone in order to get pregnant, and He explained all the reasoning (which I won't bore you with) as  to why.  Well, it sounds pretty serious to me if there is something going on with my body that it doesn't produce enough progesterone to be able to conceive, right?  I have an appointment on Wednesday with a holistic doctor, and I hope that he will have some more answers for me!  I am just thankful that I track my cycles because otherwise I would have no idea that this was going on until I wasn't able to get pregnant!

Well folks, that about all of the life updates that I have!  I'm not sure when the next time will be that I'll get to sign on to my little space on cyber world, but I'm hoping it will be sooner rather than later!


  1. Oh no about the car accident--icy roads can be so dangerous! I one time had my car slide off of the highway, but thankfully I was able to get back on again with no long lasting trouble, though I was terrified for the rest of the trip. I'm glad your Bell's Palsy is getting better!

  2. Nice to have you back, I missed reading up on you. So glad to hear you are feeling better!! I'm nosy and want to know why you won't have as much internet time?? ;) I agree that any oral BC is the devil in so many many ways!

  3. Oh goodness I'm so glad you are okay! Praying for you :)


I would love to hear from you! Leave me a comment below!
