You Can Challenge Yourself But You Can’t Always Make The Body Perform/ Day 8/By Sarah This is not the same mom and twins. This SINGLE baby was born 2 weeks ago. The twins were born the beginning of last week.
The health and wellness challenge has helped my mood this past week. As bad as I felt today, my mood was positive. Most of the time.
I had planned on going for a short walk when I first got up this morning. If not before Danny got up then after he left for work. That just didn’t happen. It was one of those days I had trouble getting out of bed. Every move I made hurt. Stand up only hurt worse.
As bad as I was hurting I still took time out to appreciate the deer that came visiting this morning. They always delight me.
These Photos were taken around 7 AM. I was getting Danny ‘s lunch ready plus fixing him his CAPPUCINO.
Somedays It’s just harder than others. I spent most of the day in bed. AC turned way down.
I forced myself up around 3 PM. Baby Girl was out off food. I had forgotten to add more to her bowl this morning.
Danny said it was suppose to rain all day. It looked like it this morning. Did It Rain. NOPE. Not A Drop.
The moment you find out you’re going to have a baby your life instantly changes. Your mind starts to whirl with emotions at the thought of being responsible for another life. Before you enter panic mode, it is important to think about the positive. When you’re having a baby, there are several things you need…
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.
I knew it was coming but I won’t be going home tomorrow. In fact I won’t be going home at all this weekend.
They also decided to hold off doing much on Friday. I need rest as much as anything and it is the one thing I can’t seem to do.
My ankle is swollen and they have it elevated for me right now, which means I am stuck in bed.
It’s one thing for me not to feel good and have trouble getting out of bed. It is one thing for my ankle to hurt when I walk on it.
I can still manage to get up and go to the bathroom.
I don’t like bed pans. There is nothing dignified in them.
What I want more than anything right now (other than being healthy and HAPPY) is to be able to get in the truck and drive. Head to the East Coast. I’d say head West but to do that I have to drive North for 6 hours or more before I could even start my journey WEST.
I don’t like my choices taken away.
My mood will improve. In a few hours (When I should be sleeping ) I will be more alert and that always makes me feel better.
I am in a blue mood. Scared because I fear surgery is next and I have been down that road before. On a good note, except for the hot flashes (I did let them give me something else for those. I’d been fighting it because I hate pills.) I haven’t been hot.
Danny wears a long sleeve shirt in here and will still complain that his hands get cold. I told him to bring gloves.
That was my attempt at humor.
He didn’t appreciate it.
He said we had 5 inches of rain at home yesterday.
There was a huge storm here. Lot’s of lightening and it was windy. He said we have branches and limbs down all over our yard and at the park.
So we are a bit Soggy at home now again.
The park, itself, only had an inch. It is amazing how that works sometimes.
Closing for now….
I was given a sleeping pill a little while ago. Praying it works. Danny went home around 9 PM tonight.
They are really good about letting him stay.

via a hospital bed.
Thanks again for ALL of the wonderful messages. Thank you also for the cards I got. Danny brought me a handful today. Amazed at them all.
He said that some of the park staff have asked if they could stop by but weren’t surprised when he said that I didn’t like visitors. They are used to that.
I don’t like them at home either.
It is unusual for me to even let anyone else know what is going on here.
This is new for me.
I’ll keep post food and recipes.
You miss Our Neck Of The Woods Posts
You miss my pictures.
You miss ME.
My camera is broken.
The smartphone I use for taking photos (no phone service) is on it’s last leg. I takes forever to load. Forever to get to where I can even take a photo and them most of the time I get an error message and it’s locked up. Plus a new battery is needed.
I can still take pictures from a distance on my old camera. But I can’t see what I am taking pictures of. I can’t think what it is called right now.
I can’t adjust it very well.
So taking photos inside is almost impossible to do with it.
So what do I do…..
I just keep taking photos and pray they turn out or I get the photo taken before the animal, (usually a bird, turkey or deer ) is gone or the phone locks up.
That is my attempt at humor. I am smiling as I wrote that.
Be More Upbeat. When I can be. You miss my humor.
So do I. I will try. I am trying. It’s hard when I really want to cry or yell that I hurt.
Right now posting much from What I have done here in Our Neck Of The Woods is hard and rather a reminder of WHAT I CAN’T DO RIGHT NOW.
I am in a good frame of mine right now so as soon as I can today/tonight or tomorrow …I will get a Post out with ALL SORTS OF PHOTOS OF Where we live work and play.
I want to thank you you all for all the WONDERFUL COMMENTS that just keep pouring in here. And my emails from you all. WOW.
I am loved. Friends are needed and appreciated here.
Oh One thing I will KEEP DOING:
I am out now but When We get to the store ??????????
I will BUY ICE CREAM
Not only did Danny and I enjoy eating it but it made the MOST WONDERFUL POST.
While I was writing this, as often happens, I saw something I just needed to take a photo of.
The phone was charging and almost out of my reach. I turned it on and made the slow walk to where my old camera was in the Den….Where the French Doors are.
Almost to the kitchen. Then the long hobble back.
Smiling here. Getting use to the hobbling around again.
I took a few pics outside of what I was looking at. I will post those soon.
Nothing all that great. Yet, it is what keeps me going.
The animals just outside my window.
I took them first from the old camera. Then with the phone. I missed the best shots.
I miss almost everything with the phone.
I also doubt either of them got a pic of the baby turkeys.
Danny is due home. I already turned the AC on in the kitchen….It was 86 in there.
78 in the rest of the house.
I need to clean up a bit.
And get snacks out.

This is from my Our Neck Of The Woods Facebook Pagehttp://www.facebook.com/sarahsneckofthewoods. Our Life. Lake Kissimmee State Park, Rolling Meadows Ranch and Allen David Broussard Catfish Creek Preserve State Park, Lake Wales, Florida. Where we work, live, play, cry and most of all Love each other.. Come and sit a spell. Danny and I share so much laughter and tears here, working and living here as we do. I needed a place to start downloading pictures I have taken over the years here. I need to write about them. I spend so much time wishing I was still living in Colorado that I forget what I have here. We really have a great life. I’m praying that once we finally get into the Cracker House things will get better-UPDATE- We are in the remodeled State Cracker House and it is better, although there are times I miss the RV. We lived it in for 5 years. It was home. It IS OURS…..I am also posting about Country Life in General and Florida in particular. Danny is a park ranger at Lake Kissimmee State Park. I volunteer there. I am a former teacher who misses being around kids.… I am mom who lost her only son, Bobby 9 years ago. I am a wife. I need to find me again. “Our Neck of the Woods” refers mostly to Rolling Meadows Ranch, were we live. It joins Lake Kissimmee State Park, on one side and Allen David Broussard’s Catfish Creek Preserve State Park on the other. We work mostly at LK and RM.
