Hot and Humid Sunday
It's hot out, it's humid and I'v had enough! I'm ready for our normal, cooler weather to come back! I'm a 70 degree girl, so 85-95 degrees does't work well for me. I know I'll be whining in February when it's only 5 degrees outside, but this ... Read more
This has been a big week for me! I celebrated my birthday yesterday, I am 29, again! My kids, especially my son, isn't thrilled with that, since he is also 29. My daughter just laughs now, as she is 31. She had a hard time with me celebratin... Read more
Make today a great day no matter what!... Read more
I was at an event recently where there were no electronic devices allowed. It was a really odd feeling, not being able to photograph the special event that was going on. It was also kind of cool, because instead of people focusing on whether t... Read more
It's been a long time since I posted, but I haven't forgotten the basics of my life journey. The winter weather, recovery from surgery and just feeling blah have me choosing not to take long walks outside. I'm looking forward to getting back t... Read more
Today was my followup appointment with the oncologist, and luckily they think they got everything when they did the surgery. I have to do follow up appointments every few months for the next two years. They said that even one tiny cancer cell ... Read more
Surgery is over but recovery is hard!
my surgery went well on Wednesday and I came home in Thursday, which was a big mistake. I really just wanted to come home so I ignored the signs that I wasn't ready. I paid dearly on Thursday as I was really nauseous and nothing helped once I go... Read more
Saturday with a smile
Today has been a busy day, started out taking my car in for GM recall work and an oil change. While waiting for my car to be done, I took a long walk. It was 4.5 miles round trip to the mall and back. It was an awesome walk, the sun was out a... Read more
Life Altering 11/13/14
Three weeks ago I got a phone call from the doctor, that a test came back questionable. Had another test last week and this one came back positive. To hear your doctor say the word cancer is very frightening. Today i was having a pity party, ... Read more
Rainy Days, Good or Bad? 10/18/14
Another rainy day. I don't like rainy fall days. I don't mind the rain in the spring and summer, but in the fall, there are so few days left before the snow falls that I get a bit upset with rainy days. Not sure that makes any sense, but that... Read more
Sunny Sunday 10/12/14
Very exciting day around here getting ready for our kitchen remodel to start tomorrow morning. The kitchen is cleaned out and ready, but I'm not sure I'm ready! I don't really like change, and this is going to be a big change for me. We have ... Read more
Yesterday was a tough day for me. It was the 1st Anniversary of my Mom's death. I'm not sure what I expected, but it was weird. DGD and I went to the library for story time, then met DD for lunch, visited with my Dad for a few minutes, and th... Read more
Thankful Tuesday 9/9/14
I just got back from a fabulous walk with a friend from my old job. Listening to her talk about work confirms that the decision I made a year ago 9/13/13 to retire was the right one. I can't believe it's been almost a year.
This past year... Read more
Being Kind to Ourselves 8/29/14
The topic of the week at our Weight Watchers meeting is being kind to ourselves. Are we kind or are we really hard on ourselves? I'm working on this one. Instead of being mad at myself for eating something or eating too much of something, I n... Read more
