Making My Home A Haven is important to me. Sharing homemaking skills. Recipes and food. Bible Studies. This is a treasure chest of goodies. So take a seat. Have a glass of tea and enjoy. You will learn all about who I am.
It’s officially Thursday Morning/ Day 3 … but it’s still Wednesday here. Our schedules are completely off track. Danny was working late field so we were getting up around 10 AM. He is back to early field and he has to get up at 7AM. We had a good night. Hectic but good. I will take it. He was on a chat tonight with a friend he met on YouTube. He asked me to join in. So I did. I stayed all the way through it. All 2 plus hours. I also did other things as well. I was bored out of my mind most of the time. But, I stayed and I commented as needed. And was so thankful when it ended. I am really trying to join in on things that Danny asks me to. I have wanted to be a part of what he was doing for a long time.
Chicken And Sausage, Guacamole with Pork Rinds, Lots of Tea, Made From Scratch Keto Pizza, Clam Chowder.
Going on 6 AM. Danny is asleep in his chair. He didn’t eat supper AGAIN…… Thank heavens his lunches are filling.
I am so excited to start this month off right and do what I need to do to make my body even healthier and happier. I hope you guys will show up for yourself this month in whatever it is YOU know you need to be doing. Happy September!! (From Neisha)
I always have good moments in my day. Usually it’s Baby Girl just doing what she always does. Or it’s the way the sun looks in the morning or even shadows.
Day 2 - September 2, 2020
Last night I reacted badly to Danny signing out 45 minutes early. I was relaxed. Still calm. All it took was here him sign out over the work radio. I went from Calm And Relaxed to this "Witch Bitch" I still don't recognize as myself. Even after feeling this anger for a year and a half.
Danny was home within 10 minutes so I had only a few minutes to calm down. It didn't happen. While I kept the anger out of my tone, I was still a bit agitated. OK, I was Full Blown Irritated. It really wasn't his fault and it should NEVER have been an ISSUE.
I made it one.
The rest of the night didn't go well. We were both out of sorts.
Working on my temper.
Working to stay calm. To not react every time something small happens.
I never went to bed Tuesday night. Mainly because I knew I wouldn't be able to sleep. Danny had to get up at 7 AM. He DID NOT go to bed until 6:15 AM. Yep, 45 minutes before his alarm went off.
He had not been quiet during the night. Everything was setting him off And he would start fussing from his computer room. Then the actual yelling would start. I am proud of myself for remaining fairly quiet through it all.
I got tired of having to interrupt what I was doing and having to go find out what he was upset about. This goes on every night. Not always as bad. I can never relax. He invited me to a chat that he was having with a follower from his You Tube Channel. There is a long story pertaining to this type of request that I won't go into now. Let's just say she was a young female. I had NO INTEREST in being there. Yet, I was trying to please Danny. He wanted me to be there with him.
There is nothing wrong with this person or her channel.
It's just a reminder of what happened last year with YOUNG FEMALES online. (Not ready to explain any further).
So I was frustrated. We waited for the chat. It never happened. I REMAIN CALMER than NORMAL. I remained fairly calm ALL NIGHT.I had to work at it. I wanted to explode when he said he wasn't eating Supper. The special dish he asked for. The one that I couldn't eat because it wasn't healthy.
So this morning I had to really hold in my anger. Keep my cools as Danny's alarm clock went off for 30 minutes. I kept my cool after trying 2xs to get him up. He finally got up and got dressed. He was a bit HUNGOVER. I wanted to yell at him but I didn't . I made a few faces but never said a word. He left a little late. I was anxious until I heard someone call him over the radio an hour later. I knew he was OKAY. I was able to finally relax. I slept off and on. Not soundly. I got up around 2ish. Made the beds. Got dressed. Etc. Got certain things ready for him for Thursday. Went out side. The sun was shining brightly. It was HOT AND HUMID but I forced myself to walk around the yard for 15 minutes. I at least got some Vitamin D. Took a shower. Changed Clothes again. Did a little Bible Study. I need to get back into it. Read a few posts on Wellness And Health. Looked up some YOGA exercises. I only had a couple of hours to work on my anger still festering inside me. I wanted to be calm when Danny got home. I SUCCEED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My sweet baby boy was born Oct. 21 2019 at 12:14 P.M. after a traumatic delivery. I had planned on a full-on natural delivery at a birth center, but baby had other plans (see full birth story coming soon). I am now 2 weeks postpartum, and I wanted to give new moms a list of things I REALLY have used so they can see how much isn’t needed, and maybe see some things they would have never thought about needing. If this sounds helpful to you or someone you know, please feel free to SHARE this on Facebook or Pinterest!!
From Sarah : If you follow me on Facebook and Instagram, you would already know of Neisha and her husband. I have been following both of them for years now. I started following Neisha’s husband 3 years ago when I started eating healthier. His name is Ken D Berry MD. I was needing help with my health issues. Mainly Lupus and Autoimmune Diseases. I was also going through a terrible Postmenopausal Season. Mood Swings. Depression. Anger Issues. Hot Flashes. I started following everything Dr. Berry wrote. I quickly learned how great him and his wife were together. @KenDBerryMD Facebook Plus he has a HUGE Youtube Channel Check Out His Keto 101 Videos https://youtu.be/xwKmVjSXTDk?list=PL48jnTudSMf_4z7qfiymmOf-xbYJJUSDX
I quickly became a huge fan of Neisha’s. Neisha Salas-Berry She fascinates me. She’s into fashion and I am NOT. Yet, I read everything. Neisha Loves It is her Brand. You can find her on Facebook, Instagram and YouTube. Anyway, Check out Neisha and Ken’s IVF story from start to delivery. It’s fascinating. Very informational. Honest.
Cleansing and detoxing through diet or medication are all the rage right now. When I did a Google search of “Cleansing” and “Detox,” million of results showed up. The amount of data overwhelmed me as I tried to sort out the information. Why do we need a detox? We cleanse or detox to rid our […]
