My sister called and said she was going to stop by yesterday so I jumped up and started cleaning my apartment! An hour or so later, she called back and said something came up and she wouldn't be able to make it after all. But, by then, I was on a roll! I cleaned and cleaned and cleaned, and it feels so good this morning to wake up to a clean apartment!
I have not been to Church in a couple of months now. I was going to a little church right around the corner from me, but after going there for awhile, I just did not believe in their three core principles. I tried to find in the Bible, support for the way they believe, but could not. I really liked it there, and the people were so welcoming and friendly, I really wanted to be a part of that church, but I just can't even talk myself into believing in their core beliefs.
Today, I want to go back to the church that I first attended almost 8 years ago now. I stopped going there because it is about 10 miles away and when I was going through chemo and radiation, it was just too much for me. That was the first church I had ever gone to for the actual service in my life. I did not grow up in the church, and had only attended when there was a special event going on and I was invited by someone to go. I accepted Jesus as my Savior through that church, and I was filled with the Holy Spirit while attending. I have felt so lost and so far away from Jesus since not going there and then not going at all and trying different churches. I need to have a relationship with Jesus Christ again!
I got another dollar an hour at work this week! I work for my brother and we just hired another girl in the office for the same amount I was getting because she had a lot of experience, and I had none when I started. Well, he said the other day that it isn't fair that I do so much more work than she does and we are making the same amount of money, so he gave me a dollar more. It felt so good to be acknowledges for what I do there! and of course the extra dollar an hour is really nice too!
One of my best friends lives near the church that I plan on going to this morning so I hope to stop by and see her this morning too. I don't go visit her very often either because it is so far away but I have been seeing her more often now that I have a new car:)

7 But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us. 8 We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; 9 persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed.

Well, I can hardly breathe, and now I cough with a drag off my cigarettes. Before I would only cough in the morning, or when I first light up, but now it's constant so I am trying the ecig for about the 3rd time. I sure hope I can use it and I hope it really helps me to quit!
I have been smoking for 49 years and just don't know how to do anything without a cigarette in my hand. I have to figure it out this time. My emphysema is so much worse now then ever.
For those of you that pray, please pray that I will be able to do it this time!

My dad was born on Sept. 1, 1917. He lived to be 86 but I think of him every September and miss him so much! Happy Birthday Dad!
My goal for September is to continue to do something for at least 10 minutes a day. I have been able to do that for at least a week or so now:)
I have to start eating better! I have been eating a whole lot of sandwiches lately, out of pure laziness! At least I do eat a lot of fruits!
Friday, my coworkers called in sick so I was the only one in the office and I tried to do dispatch. I don't do dispatch and probably made a mess of things! I did do my best, and hope things aren't too messed up this morning! I wasn't able to work on my own things at all, so I have some catching up to do today also. Should be an interesting day at work to say the least:)
Hope everyone has a great September! I can't wait for winter to arrive! We were 101 degrees yesterday but they say it will cool off a little this week. I sure hope so!

I got the results of the scan yesterday and they said there are "no new abnormalities"! Woohoo! I thought, hmmm......what are they trying to say, that I'm naturally "abnormal" therefore, there are no new abnormalities? lol
I got to get off my butt and start moving again! I have no excuse to lay in bed 24/7 when I'm not at work. I need to really think about this and get myself motivated again to start exercising and living life again!
I also thought it had been 2 years since I had chemo last, but my nurse told me the other day that it has been a little over a year, and I may be able to get my port taken out! I don't know how I thought it had been 2 years, I added a year on to my recovery somehow:)
I looked up my old blogs here on SP and it is like having a diary! My last chemo treatment was in 2012, so the nurse was mistaken. I should for sure be able to get my port taken out now when I tell them it's been 2 years, not one. I thought December 2014 would be 2 years since they told me officially that I was cancer free:)
So, I am a 2 year cancer survivor!
I love reading the old blogs and all the nice comments and support and encouragement I received from everyone, and it was great to see a lot of the friends I talk to on here everyday, are the same ones who were there for me way back then!
Thank you SP! You are a great bunch of people to be taking this journey we call "life" with me!
