Baby Goats and feelings…

Hey everyone. I didn’t get to go to The Holy Rose as planned. I haven’t been feeling well. I never rest like I should. I’m always trying to get stuff done. Well, I finally took some time to rest. I’m feeling much better. Today I’m staying home and watching tv. I’m resting so I can go with Megan tomorrow to go shopping. It will be nice to get out of the house. Tuesday is New Year’s Eve and I have reservations for my mom and me to go out to dinner. I’ll post more about that later. Today I want to post about feelings and baby goats. One of you asked about the goats so I’m going to post some pictures. My sister and her husband had another baby goat. It’s a girl this time. Her name is hope. Hope is a beautiful goat. She has a rough time. She had trouble nursing at first, but now she is doing much better. My sister and her husband had to help her, but she’s improving and she’s just beautiful!!

Here are the pictures of the baby goats.

The top left picture is Hope. The picture next to hope is Pooh and Eeyore with their mother. The bottom picture is Spot with his mother.

In total there are three boys and one girl.

I love them, especially Hope and Eeyore.

I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.

Always in Love,

Kathleen

Happy Day after Christmas/Happy Boxing Day!!

Happy Day after Christmas or as I like to call it Happy Boxing Day!! How are you all doing this fine day? I’m tired and I’m sore. I walked last night without my coat and the cold got into my bones and it hurts. However, I didn’t let that stop me from going shopping today. I went to Hobby Lobby, Walmart, Dollar Tree, and I went to ALDI’s. I got two calendars for the new year. At Wal-Mart I got food for us, I got foam balls to make some snowman, scissors cut my fabric, and I got Christmas stuff that was 50% off for next year. I got a tree, decorations, and lights. I’m so excited. At the dollar store I dropped my mom off and she got what we needed there. Lastly, we ended up at ALDI’s to grab some other items we needed for the house. We came home and I’m resting now. I’m watching a new version of A Christmas Carol and I love it. It’s a great story. If you have Hulu I would highly encourage you to watch it. No child under 13 should watch it. My mom went over to Megan’s and help her with some stuff. If I feel better I will go to Raleigh tomorrow to a place called The Holy Rose. I love that place. It is like a second home to me. It’s a place where I got my crystals that I keep by my bed. They have helped me so much. I’m going to order myself a book I found on Amazon to help me know what the names of the crystals are and what they are for. They all have different purposes they serve to help the person who has them. I love that. It’s been so helpful.

As I went out shopping today mom and I ran into a man who I have known before. I worked with him when I worked for Asheboro City Schools. His name is James Spinks. He is a man I truly admire and I consider one of my friends. He is a strong Christian man, who is beautiful and truly wonderful. I have worried about him. I have prayed for him and I am so glad to know that he is alright. I got a little emotional in the car after we did our shopping. I actually cried. I will keep him in my thoughts and prayers. I will no longer worry that he is alright. He was in the hospital and now he is retired and he’s enjoying it. I’m so glad he is. I’m glad my mom got to meet him. He’s very important. I told her that I know I say I don’t need a man or whatever. But James is the kind of man I would want to have. He’s a good man with a good heart. Even though I don’t work for Asheboro City anymore. He hugged me and wished me well when I left. I love that. I really do. James is a special friend and I love him very much. It made my day.

Always in Love,

Kathleen

 

 

 

Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas Eve Eve, Merry Christmas Eve, and finally Merry Christmas to you all. I hope these holidays have been wonderful for you.

Merry Christmas Eve Eve was Monday and I spent the day with my mom and my sisters. Christa came over to visit with Megan for a while and brought her some Christmas gifts. Meg’s boyfriend is home so I got to see him for a while. Mom and I went to Raleigh for Megan and we did some shopping for her as well. Then mom and I went shopping so I can make Christmas dinner. We came home and went to bed. It was a great day.

Christmas Eve was yesterday and Mom and I got up and had breakfast. I got all my walking done so we could go over to Christa and Dustin’s house for Christmas Eve dinner. My sister had goats born so we got to see them and they are beautiful. They are both boys and they are named Pooh and Eeyore. They are so cute. We had salad, garlic toast, and Lasagna. It was very good. We came home, watched some Christmas movies with chocolate chip cookies we made and then we went to bed. We had a wonderful day celebrating with family. I also read the Christmas Story from The Bible, Luke Chapter 2.

And finally, today is Christmas Day.

Christmas is special to me. It is about Christ’s birth, but it’s also about family. Since my father and I don’t talk anymore, my mom and my sisters are all I have. They are my family and I love them. Family is very important to me. Christmas is about giving and not receiving. It’s about being there for others. It’s something we should do all year round. Today I will be cooking Lasagna, garlic bread, salad with tomatoes and olives. I will be spending time with Megan and her boyfriend today. I have a lot of walking to get done in between, but I can do it. I’m so excited. I’m really excited about tomorrow. Tomorrow is the day after Christmas or in the UK it is known as Boxing Day. I can’t wait. I’ll be back tomorrow to let you know how I celebrate that.

I wish you all a very Merry Christmas. Enjoy this day and spend time with your loved ones, whether that be family or friends. I love you all.

Always in Love,

Kathleen

Megan Wyatt: Born December 22, 1984

Megan Noel Wyatt was born on December 22, 1984. She turns 35 years old today. She’s my sister. She’s my best friend, my cheerleader, my heart, and my soul. She inspires me every day. She is the most beautiful person I know. My family is the most important thing to me. She’s the most important person in my life. She’s the best sister ever! I love her so much. I know the last few years for her have been a “bitch”, but she made it to the other side and I’m super proud of her. She will be set free from this evil disease called Lyme and she will walk the finish line. I will be there for her and with her. I am so honored to share this amazing journey with her.

Happy Birthday, Megan!!! Love your sister,  Kathleen

Always in Love,

Kathleen

December’s Monthly Update…

Good morning everyone! I’m sorry I haven’t posted till now. I can’t believe December is almost over. It’s been a whirlwind of a month for me. So many things have happened with my family and with work. This is usually one of my favorite months, but I’m kind of glad it’s over. So much has happened. Work has been hard. I’m still learning something every day and I’m learning a lot about myself in the process. I’m learning a lot about forgiveness and pride. I had no idea the two went together. I’m really glad I chose to focus on myself this month. I really needed to. I’m still dealing with the ripples from the stuff that has happened at work recently. It’s been hurtful and painful and I mean literally. I have two burns on my arms from burning myself on pans. The cafeteria is a lot harder than I thought it would be. It also doesn’t help that one of the girls I work with has been out sick the week we got out for Christmas. I’m just happy to be out on Christmas break. I’m out from December 20th-January 3rd. I’m so happy. I’m taking some much-needed quality time with my family, getting some rest, and taking time out for myself. And of course, I’m eating junk and watching Christmas movies. Mom and I went out last night and looked at Christmas lights in Liberty. I’m so glad we went. It was nice to have some quality time with her. I love looking at lights with her. It’s a nice time for her and me to bond. Looking at Christmas lights is one of the Wyatt Family traditions that mom and I still do together. It’s really nice.

I’m still walking 7 days a week. I’m up to doing 30-40 laps a night. I’m walking over 9,000 steps a night. I’m so thrilled. I feel grand. I feel great. I’m noticing some changes, but small ones and I’m okay with that. I’m still continuing to watch what I eat. It’s been nice working in the cafeteria because I can eat there for free and it’s one less meal I have to worry about preparing for myself. I have started to eat out less and I cook at home. I’m still trying to find some balance there, but it’s coming along.

I’ve started on a new project. I’m not doing New Year’s Resolutions or Goals anymore. I’ve decided instead to focus on one word every year and to see what happens. This year I focused on forgiveness. In 2020 I have chosen to work on Pride. I have found that forgiveness and pride quite often show up in my life and that they apparently go hand in hand. I’m excited to see what happens.

Today is also a special day. Megan my sister her birthday is today. She is 35 years old today. I’ve texted her and posted a bunch of stuff on Facebook. I’ll be doing a separate post here in a minute. I’ll be back on here during New Year’s to do a 2019 Year Review of my life and I’ll tell more about what I plan to do in 2020. I have a feeling that 2020 will be my best year ever. I’m so excited.

Please share with me what you guys are doing for Christmas or if you even celebrate it. I know some people don’t and that’s okay. I would love to hear from you guys. How are you? I have missed you. I think of you often.

Always in Love,

Kathleen

Happy Thanksgiving!!

Happy Thanksgiving!! I hope today is filled with nothing, but peace, love, happiness, and many many blessings.

I decided to google Thanksgiving and this is what I found:

The event that Americans commonly call the “First Thanksgiving” was celebrated by the Pilgrims after their first harvest in the New World in October 1621. This feast lasted three days, and—as recounted by attendee Edward Winslow—it was attended by 90 Native Americans and 53 Pilgrims.

Thanksgiving (United States) – Wikipedia


https://en.wikipedia.org › wiki › Thanksgiving_(United_States) 
When you google it there are other questions that people ask when they are asking about Thanksgiving. I read a few of the answers and found them to be very interesting. I hope you will take time today to google this and read it. It’s very good.
I have celebrated Thanksgiving since I was a little girl. My parents cooked everything from Turkey, ham, mac and cheese, Lasagna, and so on. We always celebrated it no matter what. After my parents divorced it was much harder. We still celebrated, but everyone kind of did their own thing. This year I am celebrating with my sister and her husband and some of his family. I don’t really care what we do or who we celebrate with. I just enjoy being around my family. We are all so busy during the year, so the holidays are the only time we can see each other. It’s so nice. It’s nice to spend time and see my family. I know it sounds silly, but I like to sit there and listen to my sister’s voice. I don’t get to see Christa much and it’s nice to hear her voice. There’s something about her voice that is so calming. I think she would make a wonderful mother to a child. She just has that kind of voice and her motherly instincts are like nothing I have ever seen before. She’s just an all-around good person.
5 things I am grateful for:
1. My family and friends
2. My job
3. My health
4. Food, clothes, and shelter
5. I’m just grateful to be alive
What about you? What does Thanksgiving mean to you? What are you grateful for? Thanksgiving is a great time for us to get our priorities back on track. It helps us to remember to be grateful all year round. I love that.
Always in Love,
Kathleen

Happy Thanksgiving Eve…

Hello everyone!! How are you? I’m doing well. Things are going really well. I’m seeing a big change in my life and I’m really happy. I’m taking one day at a time and just working through it the best I can. Today is Thanksgiving Eve meaning it’s the night before Thanksgiving. So I decided to post about it. I’m very excited. Tomorrow I’m going to my sister’s house for Thanksgiving. Today I will be spending the day doing nothing, but relaxing. I have something to do on my list, but I’m going to relax. I slept in till about eight or so. Yes! I love sleeping in. It’s raining here so I’m going to relax. I’m trying to decide whether to buy myself an early Christmas present. There are things that I want and need so I’m trying to decide. What are you guys doing today? Do you celebrate Thanksgiving? I would love to hear all about your plans. I’m officially on break until Sunday. I go back to work on Monday, December 2, 2019. I’m truly excited for this year to come to a close. 2019 was a rough year. It has opened my eyes and I look forward to my future. Look out though, because in 2020 I’m coming back and I believe I will stronger than ever. Yay!! Yay and double yay. I’ll back tomorrow so until I wish you a pleasant day and many blessings for the holiday. Tomorrow I will be posting what I am grateful for and a little bit about the Thanksgiving Holiday.

Always in Love,

Kathleen
