What Do Hormones, Pigs, Puppies, Rain and Credit have in Common?


Why, me, of course, silly! 😉

Monday I took my son went in to Dr. to see about his rapid heart rate that happens sometimes.

When I think of EKG I think of several hours of being hooked up to electrodes and running thru a series of exercise tests.

At the office, it took more time to set up the machine than it did to test his 15 year old heart.

Looks good the Doctor says, could just be a ‘hormonal’ thing. Dizziness when standing up and heart fluctuations are par for the course.

If it keeps happening we need get a pulse and keep track of times and duration.


I wish my mother’s day present of a new camera phone was in my hand, to see him on the little exam table with his size 12 boats hanging off the end and hooked up to 8 or 10 different ‘power lines’ was funny and scary at the same time.

The fetal pig dissection is on at the school and no one, teacher or principal, had the decency to e-mail me about my little Word document. Not that I deserve an answer about whether or not they would allow the kids to look at it. But nothing. From a christian school. hmph.

I have a meeting with the same christian school this summer (elementary dept.) about setting up a Tutor with Tails program next year for the students with struggles reading. Should be interesting. The teacher who works with the kids is my pastors wife and my dear friend. Should get me in the door, eh? 😉

After 3 days of blissful sunshine, it is raining, and I woke up to the cheery sound of  rain dripping into my kool-aid smelling rain barrels.

I says to hubby; “can you hear it?” He says “what?” I says “the sound of liquid gold”. He just rolls his eyes at me. Ahh, love.

Oh yeah, I am now the proud owner of a compost bin!!!!! My hubby really does love me.

Gosh, all my stealth work is for naught, The Anti-christ  Queen  is going vegan.

I listen to Dave Ramsey on AM 630 KCIS ‘your christian inspiration station’ and he says there is a truly FREE credit report site that you can look at your credit, so I did. And I recommend it. It showed I had been on the radar since 1985 but it didn’t show my bankruptcy. hmmmm.

Anyhow, go here and check it out: annualcreditreport.com

 A friend of mine who is doing the Addictions study with us, just e-mailed me and asked me an interesting question, I wasn’t going to answer her because then I would have to think real hard, but instead dug into the brain cells for the answer.

Here is her question, my answer.

Q: Tell me something the Lord is teaching you about.

A: The Lord is always teaching patience.
With others, to love others even when they are stupid.
The Lord is teaching me I’m not in control.
And damn it, I wish I was, then again, I’m glad I’m not.
The Lord is teaching me we are responsible for our own sins and I can not take the guilt was someone else’s stuff on my shoulders, I have enough of my own.
The Lord is teaching me, I suck at being a good wife.
The Lord is teaching me my addictions still have a hold of me.
And He is the only one who can help me.

So, on that note, please comment and tell me what the Lord is teaching you right now.

Blessings, Kristina

PS; same said friend has a son who asked her if she got her diploma, she answered ‘No, But I got my GED’.

He says “Whats that, the Ghetto Education Degree?” (You rock, Samuel) 🙂

  1. The Lord is teaching me that there’s plenty in my life that’s best left out of my hands. I need to give more over to him.

    On that note… a random question. Does your hubby play golf?
    ~~not very well…..What did you want to know? gonna come here and play?

  2. I’m being taught that no matter what kind of crap the devil throws at me, it pales in comparison to how strong God is to overcome it.
    ~~amen, cuz really, who lets the devil do it? (according to Job) and He is faithful to give us a way out from under it.

  3. He’s been showing me he is aware of every stink’n thought that passes through my mind, is concerned and will (if need be) whack me a good one if I play with darkness – because he loves me.
    ~~amen, Doug.
    on a sidenote, son and i were watching Cujo last night and i told him it was filmed in Iowa, he just stared/glared at me. 😉

  4. I am finding that no matter what kind of crap the devil throws at me, God throws it harder and deeper.

    Think about it.
    ~~as i was typing out the reply to Chistian ranter, i was thinking, is this a huge cosmic game for God, ”ok, lets see how much kristina can handle, satan, you can do this, this and this, then you get the blame and I get the glory, muhahahah.” I dont know, maybe im feeling a bit cynical. its gotta be the weather and the schedule change. i hate change.

  5. Haven’t seen Cujo (I’m a wimp when it comes to scary) I’m more of a “Bill and Ted’s great adventure, Trapped in Paradise, The Princess Bride” (or one of the Borne movie’s type of guys… I’ll see what I can do to find a St. Bernard for your visit..what do you think? 😉
    ~~jesse just read this and said ‘im not going.’ then he said, ‘that’s just like old yeller, but they were smart and shot him’ (actually, they finally shot cujo too.)

  6. Job is a great picture of a cosmic game for God. No two ways about it.

    “Have you considered my servant Job?” It was God’s idea.

    Imagine if you found out I intentionally made my own child suffer the deaths of those he loves then an almost unbearable illness.

    I think we have to take the Bible as “through the glass darkly” and try to pursue God using the principles there, believing that the actual accounts may be colored by the pre-conceived notions of the writers.

    I also believe we must stop trying to make God accountable to human morality–which may not have any bearing on any true reality.

  7. I thought you didn’t like Dave!
    ~~WHAT!?!?, dude, i love dave. i listen to him every afternoon im in the car. jesse hates it, but hopefully all that common sense is sinking in for when he is a grownup. i was watching dave live on fox business channel yesterday. He is super!

  8. A little late to respond, but yes – the annualcreditreport.com site is excellent. I recommend everyone from age 0 – death check their credit once a year. You’d be amazed how many kids turn 18, go to buy a car and find out someone has usurped their credit and they must now spend hours/days undoing the mess. So check yours – check your sons too.
