20 Minute Writing Exercise

steampunk_ancient_clock_wallpaper-normal5.4

Thanks to the post I saw on Sharon‘s page, I decided to write freely for 20 minutes without thinking what I am going to write about and see what I end up with. To tell you the truth, I am not exactly sure what to say, but well, I am sure I will come up with something. I think I hyper-extended my thumb in the car accident and man does typing ever hurt right now. Clutching things is even worse. Meh, I will survive. It’s been hot and humid today. As much as the humidity and allergy season bothers me, I am grateful that the snow and cold are gone for a little while. I love it when things are green and full of life. Just seeing the brightly colored flowers, the green lawns, people out riding their bikes/walking/etc, and of course smelling the food cooking on the grills throughout the city makes me so happy. This is when I am at my best, late spring and early summer. I really do not care for winter, but I was born here and too much keeps me here right now. Maybe someday I will move away, maybe. But maybe not, only time will tell. I know that I will be here at least until my son graduates high school. I moved around a lot and that was hard for me. I don’t want my son to have to deal with all of that if I can help it. He already has a split home and that is enough for him to deal with already. Though he seems to be well adjusted to that now and it does help that he now has a positive male and female role model in both homes. The four of us work together to try and give Zach the best life possible. It was difficult when his dad and I didn’t talk much and when we did, it often resulted in arguing. It’s nice that things are finally good, that we can all communicate. Communication is key, in all relationships. Doug and I have that and that’s nice. I never had that before, someone I could really communicate with, be totally open and honest with and know that he won’t judge me, that he will listen, and that if he has something to say, he won’t hold back. Sometimes what we’re thinking or feeling doesn’t mesh with the other and it can be difficult, but we always hear one another out, and even when we don’t agree, we respect one another and their viewpoint. It’s been over a year and a half since we got together and we still haven’t had what many would consider an actual fight. I think that’s because we communicate so well. It’s really wonderful. I don’t know how I ended up with someone as wonderful as he is. But I know he thinks I am pretty special too. We balance one another out and he is great with my son, which is extremely important. I am so tired and I think I am going to fall asleep fast tonight or at least I hope so. I sure need rest after today. I sure hope that my ramblings made some sort of sense. I think I talked about a lot tonight, but this is pretty much how I talk out loud. I hope I didn’t bore anyone, ha ha. This exercise is kind of interesting, just letting my mind wander…which means I am letting it do what it frequently does anyway. I still have to put my lunch together for tomorrow. I already laid my clothes out. It helps to do this the night before because it leaves me with less to do/figure out the next day. I like to be prepared and well, I am also not a morning person, so this lets me sleep in a little longer too. *grins* Oh, my hand is really hurting. Has it been 20 minutes yet? Let me check, nope, 19. Okay, so what can I say in one minute? I’d be able to say a lot more if the space bar on our laptop didn’t stick, good grief ha ha. Well, at least it works and is a lot faster than my p.c. I think it’s time for me to get off the computer, well after I post this anyway. Ta da, it’s been 20 minutes! I think I did alright. Well, goodnight one and all. God Bless! ❤

Trying to Live the Gluten Free Way

Image

I had been so sick for so long and I couldn’t put my finger on what was wrong. Well, then after doing some research, I found out that what’s likely been going on is that I have an allergy to gluten. It made perfect sense and so I decided to try to go gluten free with my eating habits for awhile to see if that made any difference. It has worked wonders, though I have slipped a few times. Some of that was due to not knowing what to look for and some of it was due to special occasions and decided, “eh, why not?” Though, each slip was something I paid for.

Since beginning this change, I feel so much better. But, I still have so many questions. I have been asking friends and family members who deal with this for advice and for tips on what is edible and what isn’t. Well, now I am going to turn to you, my WordPress family. Two of the things I struggle with most right now is finding a good gluten free bread and also tortillas. I tried Mission gluten free tortillas and I can’t stand them. That so far is my biggest issue actually and for that, I guess I am glad.

I found a gluten free pasta that I love and also other stuff like gluten free soy sauce, pretzels, ice cream, etc. And I love that eating my fruits and veggies, as well as most of my dairy products are still possible for me. And of course knowing I can still eat meat is great, though now I have to watch what I season and marinade it with. So, if any of you has any advice, I am open to it!

I am aiming for a healthier and happier me! This is but one step towards that goal! Spring coming and becoming more active will certainly help as well. Bring on the walks to the park, kickball, summer bowling league, playing outside with my son, and just being able to get more Vitamin D, without freezing. 😉 I look forward to anything you wonderful people can share with me! And if I can help any of you who might just be starting this yourself, I will do what I can! ❤

When Tears Fall

Heavy Downpour

When tears fall

Many assume that you’re upset

And while that is often times true

Tears can be shed out of happiness too

 

There are many reasons we cry

But many times, we don’t ask why

I have found one thing to be true

They come from intense emotions

 

“I laughed so hard that I cried.”

A saying I myself have demonstrated many times

Such joy erupting from my eyes

Oh what a feeling it is!

 

Fear has caused many tears over the years

When you think you’re about to die

Or lose someone you so well know

It’s astonishing the rate those tears flow

 

Babies, weddings, sappy movies, and the like

Yeah, they make me weep too

Or when someone says or does something to touch my heart

Oh how the waterworks start!

 

They have been caused by a deep anger as well

When someone offends you so

Heated words and tempers flared

The tears within are no longer snared

 

Tears have many stories to tell

If only we’re willing to listen well

It doesn’t make one weak to let your emotions go

If you feel it, it’s okay to show it

 

Some will judge, perhaps laugh

Maybe you were taught only the weak cry

Into your private life, your silence demands us not pry

Not all tears are visible on the outside

 

As the saying goes, to each their own

Though as for me, I do express how I feel

And who I am openly, for the world to see

I am not ashamed to be me

 

But to know me, you must pay attention

Listen well, but not only to my words

Hear what my actions say, one and all

So that you may know why my tears fall
