Back on the Wagon


…and our frig is full of veggies, too!

We have not been maintaining our eating plan very well since the holidays.  So, we are allowing ourselves to begin again. 

You have to do that sometimes, you know.  It might not be a new year, or a new month, or a new week, or even a new morning.

You can start over any time you want.

It's is always a good time to do what is right.



Isaac is doing well.  We had a couple of sleepless nights (but if you've read my blog for any length of time, you know that is almost "normal" for Isaac!); and we've had a couple of grumpy days.  All that is to be expected, I think, after surgery.

He and Doug went out for a walk today, and he really enjoyed that so much.  I think he's just tired of being inside and tired of being at home.  It is SO beautiful outside, too, that there was no reason for him to stay in.  I'm glad Doug took the time to take him outside.

His surgery sites are healing well.  He has a post-op doctor's appointment next Friday.  After that, they will tell us when we can return to our normal schedule of things.


For those of you who subscribe to my RSS feed via a blog reader might notice an increase in posts over the next few days.  I am attempting to move my archives off my old blog onto this new one.  My apologies for the multiple posts.  I hope they are not too aggravating. 🙂


My back is still doing poorly.  I'm getting a little discouraged and …well, to be totally honest…a little grumpy about it!  I was hoping to feel better by now.  I cannot sit for any length of time; and if I do sit for too long, I cannot stand up straight or walk when I do get up.  I have to lean on something and sort of painfully u-n-f-o-l-d, while trying not to gasp with agony. 

If you were a fly on the wall, you would hear something like this: 

Doug:  "Are you ok?" 

Alesha:  Through gritted teeth, "y.e.s." 

Doug:  "Do you need some help?" 

Alesha:  Gasping with pain, "NO." 

Doug:  "I can come help you." 

Alesha:  "No.!"

Doug:  "All right, well take your time."

Alesha:  Almost to the bed, "o.k."  Then upon reaching the bed, "ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh…"

Doug:  "Are you ok?"

Repeat ad nauseum.  It's quite a comical thing, if you're not involved!!! ;o)


I hope you are going to be able to go to church tomorrow.  I know I am missing it so much, being stuck here.  I am grateful to have the live video feed, but I do miss seeing everyone.  There's just something about face-to-face fellowship that can't be mimicked by virtual interaction here on the web.

If you are stuck at home time, feel free to join our service here.  Just hover over "Media" and click "Live Service".

  1. I am so glad that Isaac is healing and doing better! Whew! that was scary for a while there! Now we have Josh to worry about. :/
    I am so sorry about your back! What is wrong with it anyhow? Can you break out the biofreeze? See a chiro? It must be completely frustrating to be debilitated against your will like that for weeks on end. ugh. I am praying for a healing miracle!


  2. Sounds like Isaac is doing so good – PTL!! Those “what is the problem” time are SOOOO hard. Finding the answer and then dealing with the situation, though hard is still often times easier in the long run.
    Glad Isaac could get Daddy to take him for a walk. Last week, Josh so enjoyed getting out and about. He was being typical boy – he had a hissy fit when we said it was time to come in!
    Praying for you are you get back on track! Also praying your back will straighten out and behave!!
    Hugs & Prayers!!
