OH MY GOODNESS!! Was my last post really almost a year ago!? I am a horrible, terrible, selfish person!!! LOL…okay, I know that I’m not, but I do feel bad-leaving the two of you hanging that read this blog! Praise God from whom all blessings flow…I am a totally different person today than I was on September 27th, 2010, the day of my last post. He has healed me physically and changed me on the inside too. Does that mean I don’t have days where I want to get in the car and drive away from the whining, crying, arguing children in the kitchen? No…but there are fewer moments of anger and self-centeredness and I truly love the Lord with all my heart. It’s been a difficult lesson to learn. Last year, the steroids hadn’t really taken effect yet, and once they kicked into high gear, I was a wreck-physically and emotionally. I dealt with a lot of insecurity issues (will I ever be done with those?!) over my acne and physically handicaps.
However, after going through physical therapy and getting some strength back, I’m now only on one medicine-Methotrexate. It is a chemotherapy pill and I’ll be on it for another year or so, but praise the Lord that I don’t need my grandma-sized pill organizer anymore!
The last month has been crazy because we have moved from the Pacific NW to the rural southern place of Fort Rucker, Alabama. To be frank…this place is country! I haven’t lived in a small town atmosphere before and it is taking some getting used to.

We are unpacked now and have many claims on the things the movers packed and broke or loaded and broke or put in storage and broke or unpacked and STOLE(all 20 of our Wii games)! Now that that is done, my back is killing me, probably from my weak abdominal muscles putting all the strain on my back 🙂 Anyway, I’m rambling on. The main thing I wanted to say is that I’m doing much better and we are in a new place with a new goal. I will write soon about my next adventure…HOMESCHOOLING!
