  1. enjoyed your Post.
    btw: totally identified with the “…the very mild vertigo and dizziness” having had (a form of) that for many year. It’s amazing how such a prevalent condition (I know at least 6 people with similar sounding condition) can be such an annoying, persistent and yet not-simple-to-diagnose.! Whenever I hear someone mention this condition, I always say the same thing: ‘if it remains ‘well, we’re not really sure what is causing this’ for you, do not despair. Finding your own way to manage the condition is key (provided it is of the chronic but not make you fall down type that many people experience). …when you get the slight dizziness, keep your head ‘level’, (don’t bend ‘at the neck’) as much as possible, watch your breathing (there is a tendency to tense the shoulders and hyperventilate and that adds to the dizziness).
    Sorry for the ‘off topic’ Comments! lol

    • Oh it’s totally on-topic. That’s pretty much what I’ve been trying to do. It’s just been frustrating because it makes exercise a little more difficult. But after two months away, I’m going to try to go back to the gym this morning and just work through it!

  2. It is a godsend to remember what you are thankful for. I truly thinks it is a great way to lift your spirits. I hope you find resolve in your health concerns and I can totally relate to the whole ETS thing. When my husband got out of the military he went months without getting a job. But, I was still in so it was ok. When we both got out and we moved back home, the transition was hard. If I had to do it all over again, I probably wouldn’t have gotten out. I like the routine of the whole thing. Good luck!

    • A lot of people tell me that they wish they hadn’t gotten out…kinda scares me. But, my husband has gotten out once before. He had a 6 year lapse in between Airforce service and Army service. So he’s been in both worlds. I really think that for us, no matter how hard it will be, it will be for the best. We just can’t handle another deployment!

    Aw, such a beautiful post. Glad your health is doing all right and great idea with the iPhones. We still have dumbphones and have never graduated to the Apple products. But, reading this, I’m inspired to keep them a little longer. 🙂

    I love your beautiful list of things you are thankful for! It sounds like you are going though a lot health wise – I hope that it can be resolved and you can be well for your boys!

    • Thank you so much for your comments. The health stuff is overwhelming, but I am just chalking it up to stress now that it seems that there’s nothing seriously wrong.

    • yeah Mandy told me that!! I do have a gmail account but don’t have that app. Also can I only call people who also have gmail? or can I dial actual numbers?

    I love that you are being grateful for it all. I need to open my eyes to every blessing, big and small. And that meat on sale? Yeah, that’s worth jumping up and down about 🙂

    • I know. Organic meat is something that I can’t afford most of the time. We eat a lot of meat and it’s so expensive. I was very glad to find it!!! LOVE manager specials!!
