Last night we had the worst thunderstorm I’ve ever experienced in Oregon. It was majestic, powerful, loud. At its closest point to us there was only a one second delay between sight and sound. After a while it grew to 9 seconds and I fell asleep or it stopped. The teenager even crawled into bed with us. 4 of us and a cat in a king bed may sound fine but it’s a cal-king, and I really missed those 4 extra inches last night.
The acclimation to school has been difficult so far. Granted it’s only been a week but the teenager is grumpy and the middle has been crying every morning. They do this thing in middle school where they divide the entire class year into two groups. She happens to have been put in the one without most of her friends. Plus she has been having intense dizzy spells since mid summer and having to concentrate on schoolwork hasn’t been helping.
She has an appointment with a specialist in a few weeks. If the situation doesn’t improve we may have to resort to home schooling her again. It’s not my first, second or third choice but if it becomes necessary then so be it. She’s at the age she can be home alone, even if I would prefer she simply go to school.
Monday I start another mucoid plaque cleanse coupled with a more intense parasite cleanse. 3 weeks of that and then another liver flush. I’m curious if the mucoid plaque cleanse will release much of anything since I just did one in December but we shall see. Considering that in December I pulled out enough mucoid plaque to ascertain with absolutely no doubt whatsoever that I was pulling it from my small intestine as well. Which since that is where we have most nutritional absorption, is a scary thought.
It’s bad enough that our diets are not all that great, in general. Then our food sources have been depleted of a lot of nutrient content by mineral deficient soils and unnatural farming practices and now I have to contend with a digestive system that has so much plaque build up it doesn’t even absorb properly what I do give it. Mildly depressing. But as I tell my clients, knowledge about how your body is functioning is so very important.
I’m trying not to stress and just take things one day, one moment at a time but it’s not easy when so many factors depend on outside sources. I called the lawyers that are in charge of my foreclosure. I wanted some dates and information. I haven’t received any letters and I received no call back. I can see why people lose it in these situations. How easy it is to succumb to the stress and lose hope. That’s isn’t me, but I can understand how one gets there in cases like these.
There was a time when middle class meant one income households. Do I want to go back to that? Yes and no. Yes, it would be great to be able to easily pay for all the things one needs with an average wage job. But that system was very sexist and racist. However having to now have dual income if not more and not being able to survive anywhere in this country on minimum wage is also not the right way to go.
No easy solutions. I did see this article recently on having a global system with money that expires. I think it’s absolutely genius*. Will it happen? Maybe. We are in a time where we need better equality for all people. We need a better way of life. No one can live a healthy, happy, fulfilled life under all the stressors of modern day existence and it’s time we changed that.
War has never been the way. If we don’t start caring for each other, our planet, our souls trajectory in this existence then what is the point of any of this? I mean really? The carrot of what is being dangled in front of us is no match to the depths of happiness available from living a life true to our heart. And any sacrifice towards that is well worth the effort it takes unlike much else this world seems to offer.
It’s a bit of a muggy day, but the air smells so fresh and clean. I really want to make it a point to go out into nature each day, even if it’s just to sit on the grass for 10 minutes and look up to the sky and beautiful trees we have here in the Northwest.
Here are some images I took from the plane ride home. Mountain Hood and some farming patterns which I found interesting.
Hope you all have a great day. I feel rather good today, internally…..maybe against the odds, but none the less….. grateful.
*Although personally like books I like money to be tangible. This move to digitalize our entire lives has gone way too far I think. But still the idea of this kind of system is one I can get behind.
