It has been a while since I wrote a blog so I thought I would catch up with everyone. I am having fun with my challenges, 5%
A team is flying right along. My BL
Tangerine team had been doing
and the Christmas Melt of 2012
is unbelievably fun. I also just completed the Red Hot Heartbreakers Challenge with the Done Girls and am beginning a new challenge with my 60+ Team! Wow, these teams keep me on my toes. I push as much as I can and never compare myself to anyone else on the team but do my best to help out where I can with encouragement and support. My miles and points and minutes will never be the highest but I am giving you all my
I finally completed all of the vein procedures on my legs, 5 throughout the summer and am glad for the relief it has brought me. I can walk easier and have less pain in my legs.
We are now off to find out what some other medical issues are and try to fix some of those. Next week I will be tested for Gastroparesis or Lazy Stomach. The winter is coming with lower temps and breathing issues. My arthritis is trying to kick up a notch and I am determined to keep on keeping on through it all. I am a little wiser how far I can push myself with my health issues each year and have learned to rest when I need and
when I can.
I have finally entered the Facebook age and am able to keep in touch with my kids better. They haven't really figured out the writing letter thing so I will come to them through their medium.
My biggest dream right now would be to attend the
Jingle Bell Walk/Run for the Arthritis Foundation in Wichita, Kansas on December 1. It is being held at Exploration Place where my 2nd son works and I would love to meet some of my Spark Buddies if they are there. I dream but then think about the cold and the difficulty breathing and walking and the transportation there. I am going to plan and try to do the walk even if I can't get the event itself. It will be a very hard goal to reach as I must rest about every 15 minutes of walking but we should all dream!
to one and all and have a Spook
