This Off the Wall Wednesday, is to wish you a Happy New Year, direct your eyes to some things I've done here on the blog, Give you a heads up to what you will be seeing here in the year, 2015.

Happy New Year.

In my progress of working on my blog settings I discovered, that my blog address was missing the second u in future.

Since I had no actual comments on the blog so far I went ahead and fixed it.  It does mean that my past posts that were linked to the old address are broken now.  And I lost that 1 person that was following my blog.  Which happened to of been my son.

On the side I've added a list of the Blogs I read.  I will be adding more to the list as times moves along.  There are others things that I will be adding to the side in the future.

You may of not noticed I have added to my blog's description.  
All the Experts tell you to blog in a Niche.
Life, Business, Family, Money, Future?  I'll leave the Labeling of this blog to YOU.
Those same Experts will also tell you to Think Outside the Box.

What you will be seeing here in the future is:
  • Off the Wall Wednesdays.  My Kids find the oddest things to talk to me about.
  • My Friday Blog entries will be focusing on Tips to Become Rich.

My Son Eli Part 4

My Son Eli Part 4:

 Dec 8th – Dec 13th, 2014 was the most stressful and craziest week we have had all year.  I left the story off writing about the consult we had with the Surgeon for the 8th.  It went well and Eli was a lot more relaxed about the upcoming surgery.  We came home, without knowing when the surgery would be.
 Dec 9th the Surgeon’s office called to tell me they had an opening Dec 11th.  It amazes me that last weeks rushed post made sense to anyone.  Cause later that morning my son said to me on the way to taking them to school.  “Mom, your Bat S--t Crazy.”   LOL.  My son is great at saying the most off the wall things to me.  After a long deep breathe and a moment of thinking about what he said, I had to agree with him, laughing.     
When I started writing my son’s story, I had not realized that it would enable us to grow closer.  It gave him a window into my mind, and he learned things about his childhood he was not aware of.
He also gave me directions on some of the pictures he wanted me to take.  The nurses were not happy seeing me pulling the camera out in the recovery area to take this picture.  The surgery to place the stent was, Dec 11th, 2014.
After surgery was done, he had challenges of keeping liquids down for hours.

His first meal of solid foods was French toast sticks, then pizzas.  He was not released until late afternoon Friday  the weather had been yucky all day and just got worse as evening came.        
The fog got worse the further we drove south so we gave up and rented a room at the Grand Hotel.  You can still see the fog out the window of the hotel room we rented, but it was not as bad as it had been the night before. 

We made it home, and my son has been chattering about all the things he wants to do now.  His working with me on his story has sparked the desire to start a personal blog of his own.  It’s nice to see he is smiling and making plans for his future.

I’m so happy and glad that my son’s story has a happy ending.   
Hope you drop by next Friday to see what I’m blogging about next.

Business Habits are important.

Business Habits are important.

For me it's 5am Wednesday.  I've got a lot of things that needs to be done today,  so I'm struggling to keep my mind focused on writing this.

Sometimes things just don't go as planned.  If this was my personal blog, and not my business blog, I wouldn't be sitting here struggling to keep my mind focused long enough to do an entry.

With the internet you can't easily hang a sign on the door saying closed until Monday.
The internet never sleeps.  It doesn't take weekends off, and it won't get sick and need surgery.
It's the best type of business partner one can find.

I don't have a device that will let me work on the go.  Even if I did have one I still would choose to tape a closed sign on the door.  You can't hold a child's hand, or look them in the eyes to see they are filled with fear of the future, if you don't put the devices down once in a while.
My Son Eli Part 4 will be coming next week.

The link above will take you to our store where you see his artwork.

My Son Eli Part 3

When I started writing about my son, I knew 1 entry was not going to cut it.

You hear about school busses getting hit on the news every now and then.  No one wishes for their child’s school bus to be the one in the news.

It was their father’s habit to wait outside with them for the school bus, and that morning was no different.  He was standing there watching as our daughter hurried up into the bus, while our son slow poked along behind his sister and was in the door way when the bus was rear ended.  The impact caused my son to fall backward out of the bus, while my daughter was rolling around inside the bus.

I heard no sounds of squealing breaks, just the sickening sounds of metal against metal.  I ran out of the house without any shoes on, praying the bus wasn't a part of the wreck.  The bus was still there.  I hurried toward the bus to see my son getting up off the ground cussing as he started dusting himself off.

Something like the bus wreck, one is on pure instincts, and the fact my son got up ready to fight, gave me a peace of mind.  I knew in that moment that no matter what my son, faced in the future, if it did not kill him, he would come out on top.

 Once the primary doctor heard about him being in a bus wreck, she labeled him a miraculous child.  She made me see just how lucky we were that the Bicuspid Aortic Valve and a Coarctation of Aorta, didn't take him that day. 

There is a lot of other things going on in my son’s life that I wasn't aware of until I started the process of creating a stress free home for my son.

With all the high stress circumstances he has faced in the past it makes me very aware just how lucky we have been that the Coarctation of the Aorta has not taken him from us.

For now his highest stress is the upcoming surgery.  His regular doctor raised his dosage of high blood pressure meds again.  He is taking his blood pressure readings 3 times a day, his readings were starting to climb back up again.

Dec 8th, he has an appointment in the city to meet with the surgeon.  This one is just a consult, so we can meet the surgeon, and my son can ask him questions which hopefully will help him conquer the last remaining fears he has about the surgery.  We also should learn then the day he will be having the surgery.
