No Where To Hide…

There’s so many avenue’s today to find people. It’s pretty clear that if you wanted to find someone nowadays all you have to do is turn on the computer and log into the internet. It’s sure to find someone you’re looking for be it via a blog, a message board, a social networking site, or even searching an online database for public records. It’s almost downright scary that you can’t really ‘run and hide’ from the world anymore, there’s always a way online to easily find a person. Is that a good or a bad thing? I guess it could be sort of both.

The Waiting Game…

The days go on and on and on….and we sit here and wait….We’re still waiting for the job to come along. Although we have had some kind of promising news this week I guess. Our number one pick for a job for Rodney had yet to call us back or email or anything. Last we had heard if you remember that he had called and they told him they hope to know more on Thursday. Even though it came and went, Rodney called them yet again on Monday and left a message. This job is too promising and too good to just it slip past us, he’s being as aggressive as possible to ensure that he’s picked for this position. We keep dreaming about it, it would be the perfect situation for our family. A home office (and yes, I’ve been eying some great home office furniture), great pay, weekends off and a 9-5 day….from his past job being on call 24/7 and working till who knows when, this is a dream come true.

A few days ago while we were cleaning up the house, moving some of our computer desks around the house into various different rooms (yes we need a change of something we’re going nuts), Rodney got a call from the company FINALLY!!!! Basically the recruiter was telling him the higher ups were dropping the ball on this and taking their time. She gave Rodney the email to one of the Vice President’s that in did a phone interview with and told him to email him the same follow up email that he had sent to her. So we did that, and thankfully got a response….It makes you think though, how these people can advertise a job over a month ago and just sit there in their comfy little office chairs all this time and just let people who need the work, who are qualified and a top candidate slip out of their reach because they’re taking their sweet old time…..So back to the email, we got a response that he’ll be in Ohio within the next SEVERAL weeks (*thud* the wait is never going to stop), for face to face interviews, and that he’ll contact Rodney to set up an interview.

So I guess it’s good, the job still sounds promising, and it’s still the top pick, most money etc….but the waiting is UGH unbelievable. Thankfully Rodney has a few follow up interviews next week with some companies, neither pay well, and he has to follow up with a phone call for a third one that does sound very promising….So that’s the update around here, still nothing exciting going on. Lyric’s 5th birthday is coming up at the end of the month, and although we can’t do much, family is coming down here to help us out to celebrate….

Healthy Kids, Naturally

(Family Features) Keeping kids and teens healthy can be a challenge during the busy school year. In fact, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) say that nearly 22 million school days are lost annually due to the common cold alone. Fortunately, there are some simple, and natural, things parents can do to help kids stay healthy and energized for all their activities.

Hygiene. The CDC says that the single most important thing you can do to keep from getting sick is to wash your hands. When there’s not sink and soap around, use natural hand sanitizers, wipes or gel with 100 percent pure essential oils.

Nutrition. Growing bodies and brains need fiber and nutrients to stay healthy. A child’s health can suffer from too few of these good things and too many sugary, highly processed foods.

The USDA Food Guide Pyramid recommends nine servings of fruits and vegetables a day. One serving size of fruits and veggies for children equals one of the following:
– 1/2 cup juice
– 1 cup raw leafy salad greens
– 1/2 cup chopped raw, canned or cooked fruit or other vegetable

Essential fatty acids, particularly omega-3s, are crucial for development and health of the brain, heart, nervous system, tissues, skin and immune system, especially for school-age children. DHA can be found in fatty cold-water fish like salmon, mackerel and tuna, and in DHA-enriched products like eggs and milk.

What about nutritional supplements? If kids and teens are actually eating nine servings of colorful fruits and veggies plus foods containing all the other recommended daily nutrients every day, then they probably don’t need them. But with picky eaters, tight schedules, food allergies and more, they don’t often get what they need. In these cases, supplements might be a good idea. But be careful. While it’s easy to find a fun and fruity multivitamin that kids don’t mind taking each day, its the nutrients they need, not loads of sugar or artificial colors and flavors.

Rest. Rest, relaxation and sleep are key for handling stress. While moderate stress is normal, the demands of school life can cause stress overload for youngsters and adolescents and their parents and teachers! Be sure to schedule in downtime and allow for adequate sleep when you’re planning the week.

Kids need more sleep than you might think.
~ 3-6 years old: 10 3/4-12 hours per day
~ 7-12 years old: 10-11 hours per day
~ 12-18 years old: 8-9 hours per day

Stomachaches, nervousness, trouble sleeping, anger flares or infections may be signs of stress. Fortunately, there are plenty of safe, effective ways to handle it. Breathing deep, exercising, stretching, physical play and homeopathic remedies may help.

If you would like to know more about natural ways to help your kids stay healthy, the Whole Body Team Members at Whole Foods Market are well educated about all of the products they offer and are happy to answer questions.
