Sitting here in the doctors office with my oldest son and we have been here for over an hour and the doctor still has not come in. So that I don’t fall asleep, I am taking this time to blog.
I have been on the go since 5:30 am so I am a bit exhausted. That’s just the way it is when the kids are in school and so much is going on.
The train was late again this morning, so I drove my youngest down to Orem. While down there, I went grocery shopping at our favorite store, Winco. The prices are amazing! You go to check out, thinking you spent $200, only to find it was only $100. Seriously that good!
I helped my oldest when I got home by letting him practice his presentation with me again. He rocked the interview with this company. I hope he gets chosen! He is a rock star with business and with people in general.
So, I made some tacos, as you can see in the picture above. I made them in the slow cooker, with a seasoning packet by http://www.spiceblends.com/ and IT WAS SO TASTY!
To go with it, I made salsa fresca and cut up some olive, avocado, and lettuce. I used some tiny jalapenos from our garden in the salsa fresca, garden tomatoes, some red onion, and some sweet peppers. I also used lime juice and salt. Let me tell you, those little jalapenos pack a punch! Oh, but they made for spicy deliciousness. View more on how I made the meal in the video below.

I am fighting through nausea and dizziness right now as I have some migraineous problems. Yes, I made up my own vocabulary word. My Botox for Migraine got cancelled and will have to be rescheduled after the insurance approves it, so it will get pushed out by quite a few weeks. That doesn't thrill me for some odd reason.
Because of how I feel, I will continue under the video with the story I have been telling, but it will not be a super long section of the story. I just don't have it in me today.
Continued from previous post...
Through the ladies at my office, I got involved in organizing galas for the United Way. Through that work, I was able to get to know some of the movers and shakers in Las Vegas. That is how I know that there is definitely so much corruption, that the mob is still alive and well and just working under the cover of various other organizations.
Those ladies were good for me. They knew that I was honest and that I had been through hell. We became pretty good friends...at least as far as ties in Las Vegas goes.
I used to go up to Red Rock and hike on various hikes around the loop. I would mostly go alone. That may have not been the most safe thing, but there were always people where I was hiking...plenty of them. It was my escape. It was my space to feel the energy of nature and to think. I was searching for who I really was and was really working hard on myself.
Self help books were my friends. I read everything I could get my hands on. I listened to audio books before work that helped with "working a room" and with better habits and working with people. They were motivational and helped me with coping mechanisms. This was an exploration and learning time for me. I realized that I didn't have great social skills in various situations, so I worked really hard on that area of my life.
Some of my favorite books are by Deepak Chopra. I understand how energy works because of his books. I love The Seven Habits as well. Very good.
