Normal Routine

I've been tinkering on all of the blogs lately so I haven't posted since Monday. Life is pretty much routine these days. Leif's usually home most of the days and works in the evenings. So we work on our projects and enjoy each other's company during the day. We're really looking forward to the first week of September when school starts. Money will be in and that will ease a lot of stress. We're hoping Leif will interview with Zions Banks call center within the next couple of weeks. That job will really help out a lot too.

Jakob is very excited about school and dance class. I'm really excited about my nutritional medicine classes. And Leif is just looking forward to moving forward! Caleb is growing and happy. He'll have his four month immunizations tomorrow. Those are a bitter sweet thing. He's "talking" right now. Jakob says that he's telling us a jet story. Jakob is obsessed with jets and dinosaurs right now.

Leif's dad had neck surgery today. He was in tremendous pain because of several bone spurs that had grown on his neck vertebrae. It was a laser surgery so it wasn't very invasive. It went well, and we pray that it will ease some of the pain that he lives with on a daily basis.

The Simple Women's Daybook



FOR TODAY August 4, 2008

Outside My Window... It's dark. 9:22 PM, curtains closed. I think it's cloudy...

I am thinking... about so many different things. I think I will be formulating health supplements in my sleep.

I am thankful for... Sleeping Children.

From the kitchen... The dishes linger in the sink and Jakob's dinner plate still sits on the table.

I am wearing... My comfy pants.

I am creating... a health supplement formula and plan for Leif and I.

I am going... to bed as soon as I'm done here.

I am reading... A lot of information about vitamins, minerals, herbs, amino acids, etc.

I am hoping... That I can stand having Jakob whine about wanting to play with the big kids tomorrow. I should be glad, but they're older then him and I'm protective. (A family from the community needed a trailer to stay in this week.)

I am hearing... The hum of the air conditioner and stillness. Ahhhh~ Caleb's fussing! GRRR!

Around the house... There are things waiting for me to do tomorrow. But for now.

One of my favorite things... is my biggest vice: Peanut Butter Panic ice cream, smothered in hot fudge and nuts.

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week: Just getting through it. Things aren't bad, but not easy.

Here is picture thought I am sharing... I can not believe how much Jakob and Caleb look alike! This is Jakob at Caleb's age. The only difference is Caleb still has beautiful blue eyes and Jakob had/still has deep brown eyes. They even hold their hands the same way...

Hair Thing Is Normal: Body Type Tests And Research

I had heard that hair loss was normal after pregnancy. I've heard it now from a few of you. I don't remember it after Jakob or the twins. But I'm sick of it! The adrenal and thyroid glands are all related to hormones and chemicals in the body. Mine have been messed up for a long time. It's just really showing itself at the moment. I won't go into details, but the hair loss isn't the only thing. I'm not too focused on the problems, but I have had to take a minute and really do some health evaluation. Not just skim the surface with eating healthy and taking some good supplements. I needed to figure out what supplements to take. I already have a good knowledge base of what healthy eating is through trial and error. So I went on a quest.

I found some really good resources. These doctors and their websites really narrowed things down for me. Each of their sites have a short quiz for you to take that analyzes your health and gives you a good clues as to what the issue might be if you're just not feeling right. It's REALLY neat! I got the same results on all three tests. Severe adrenal fatigue and moderate thyroid fatigue. So, now I know and I'm on my way to feeling better. Here are the websites:

DrBerg.com

WomenToWomen.com

LiverDoctor.com

(Friends and Family) Let me know what your results are and I'll give you an idea of what supplements I have found for your results. Read the information on their websites too. It's all really god information.
