Boy, I wish I were this sweet little kitten!! I am so tired right now that I don't feel like eating either!! That is being very TIRED in my world anyway!!

It has been two weeks today that i was a "STUPID" and decided that i no longer needed to take some medication that had not been working PLUS it was so expensive. Little did I know or did I THINK (probably the problem) that just stopping it without weaning myself off...would be a good idea!! I just did the STUPID thing and stopped.

For the past two weeks I have been paying for that LARGE mistake that I made!! My blood pressure has been soaring..WAY up there with the Blood pressure BIRDS!! I just cannot seem to get enough sleep!! I am way beyond TIRED!!

Plus I have been working!! Man, that has been a drag!! I have to leave again in a few hours. It is lunch time but I think I might just eat a small amount and then go lay down AGAIN!! I cannot seem to get anything done around the house feeling this way either.

Oh enough of me..sorry!!

I was really surprised last night that Michael Johns was sent home on Idol. I know that he has a great future in front of him. I am just not for sure who is going to win now...BUT I do know that my favorites are still hanging in there. I was so very very impressed after the Idol GIVES BACK SHOW when the remaining idols closed the program by singing, "Shout to the Lord"!! I was so happy to see this great testimony on a show where so many people are watching!! I know it may not do much but I was really happy about it!!

Did you see this week about the baby that was born in India with the two faces? This just made me sick to my stomach. Especially the way the people believe there in India. This is the first baby for these parents. They have named here Lali.. beautiful name. Here is what one report said:

"The baby with two faces, two noses, two pairs of lips and two pairs of eyes was born on March 11 in a northern Indian village, where she is doing well and is being worshipped as the reincarnation of a Hindu goddess, her father said Tuesday.

I was just very upset with this when I saw this photo! What a sad situation but I guess being born in India is in fact a good thing for little Lali. She will probably have a good life!! Still bothers me a lot!!

If you are a praying person would you please add me to your list! This is not me!! I need to get my laughing smiling self back again. I wish I knew where she went!!


Thought for the day: "Never argue with an idiot. They'll drag you down to their level."

I discovered your blog by your comment on Hootin' Anni's blog. The flip flop thing drew me in. Personally, I'm a little off of flip flops right now. Last 4th of July I stepped into our swimming pool with flip flops on (stupd thing to do). My foot slipped out from under me on the top step and down I went twisting my right leg badly. I still have a real problem with that knee after surgery, shots, and physical therapy. I think it will never be the same. Enough of "poor me".
Yes, I saw the picture in the paper about the baby in India. It was the first time I had heard of that happening. It made me think about a porcelain doll I made back in the 80s. It has two faces. I featured it on my blog a couple of weeks ago. Freaked out just about everybody that saw it. It freaks me out now that I see a real baby with two faces.
Have a great weekend.

Hi Sandy, I am sorry to hear that you still feel not up to par...The new medicine is not helping with your blood pressure?/ Are you going back to the MD any time soon?

Guess who I saw at the mall today?/ I saw Betty and Barbara from Curves.I have not seen them in a long time...

I am starting on Wednesday to volunteer 4 hrs. a week in the nursery..I can't wait to hug and feed the babies..
Take care of yourself.
Hugs, Barb said...

Hi Sandy, I am sorry to hear you have been feeling bad. I will add you to my prayer list for sure!!
It is cold here and they are calling for snow flurries for in the morning!!
Love and hugs Carolyn

Hi Sandy....hope you'll begin to feel better soon. And thanks for the sweet comment you left me today...yep, Mary's Pay it Forward gift was just super. Now you know why I was speechless the other day.

Feel better soon.

Mary said...


I'm so sorry that you are not feeling yourself. I have added you to my prayer list and hope you are feeling better soon.

I had not heard about the baby in India that was born with two faces. This is a tragedy. Thankfully she will be treated well because they believe that she is the reincarnation of a goddess. However, it is so sad.

Thanks for stopping by and commenting on my post. I always enjoy visiting with you. Get lots of rest. Your body is in a kind of withdrawal because of stopping the medication so quickly.

Hello friend, I am sorry you are not feeling up to yourself. I think we have all been there. Where you just don't feel right. Will be praying for you.

Can I tell you a funny story. The other day I was feeling over whelmed and a little on the grouchy side. I must have told my youngest to stop being a smarty pants. He disappeared to his bedroom for a bit and then returned to the family room with books packed in his pants. He looked at me with a smirk smile on his face and said. "Now I can be a smarty pants" grrrrrrr. I cracked up laughing.

hugs to ya.

Oh Sandy... I am so sorry you are not feeling well!! Please take care of yourself.. blood pressure meds, are nothing to play with!! Count on me to pray for you!! Lord, My Friend needs your healing touch. May your joy fill her heart, and give her back her smile!! May she feel your loving hand on her even NOW!!
I will check on you tomorrow!!

Hope said...

Hi Sandy,
I just wanted to stop by and say hello after being under the weather myself only to find that you're not doing well either! I'll keep you in my prayers. Those meds are nothing to fool around with!

I had seen the two faced baby on the news and it upset me too. I saw a video on the internet later where doctors want to see what they can do or if they can correct the baby's condition and the father said no. She is being worshiped right now and people are coming from far and wide just to see her and worship her. How sad!

Feel better soon!


Betty said...

Sandy, I'm sorry you are not feeling well, and I hoope you are better soon.

Yes, I was very surprised that Michel was voted off American Idol. He was so much better than the other two that were in the bottom three.

I did hear about that baby but had never seen a picture of her. Pitiful.

I have something on my blog for you since you are a regular visitor to my site. Hope you can drop by and pick it up if you like.

Hi Sandy, I too am sorry to hear you are feeling so badly and your blood pressure is way up. You take care and I'm praying for you tonight. How fun that you read the same Love Lucy book that I just finished. I thought it was so interesting...I read it in about 2 days. I don't really think I would have liked Lucy back then...with her blood red finger nails and being the first woman in her small town to wear pants in public. Yet, her show is always enjoyed. I love her comic talent. And I always thought Desi was just a success hanging on to her coattails but not so!He was talented and wealthy also. I don't watch the 'Idol' show..I don'tcare for it, but I did see the baby with two faces..that is so shocking and to have her grow up thinkingshe is to be worshipped is just preposterously sad. What do you think our American Drs would do in such a case? If anything surgically could be done! You take care..I hope to read that you are feeling much better VERY soon. Our pc is in the have borrowed my son's laptop. Its so touchy...the curser keeps jumping to places I don't want to be. bye for now, Maggie

The picture of the kitty is adorable but I am sorry you are not feeling well...
Hope it's over soon!

Denise said...

Bless your heart sweetie, lifting you up in my prayers. I love you.

I guess there's a reason why doctors tell us not to quit taking a medication so suddenly! lol I've made that mistake before too and learned my lesson the hard way, just like you're doing. Hopefully you'll be back on track soon!! It's awful feeling so tired and sapped of energy.

I had heard on the news about that baby in India being born with two faces but hadn't seen a picture. Goodness, it certainly is a shock when you see her for the first time. It breaks your heart but then as you say, being in India, there seems to be no problem with the way she looks and in fact she'll be revered!

My prayers are with you that you will soon feel yourself again:-) xox

saying a prayer my friend

Susie said...

Hi Sandy,
I'm so sorry to hear that you're still having health problems. It's terrible not to have the energy we need.
That poor precious baby in India just makes me feel so sad. I suppose if she were here, she'd get good medical help. Perhaps that will happen since she's been in the news so much.
I've said a prayer you'll feel better soon Sandy.

Hi Sandy. I'm sorry to hear that you haven't been feeling well. It might be a withdrawal symptom from the medicine/s. I hope that you'll get better soon. May you have your energy back soon. God bless my friend.
