emoticon My legs hurt so I'm not sleeping well tonight. I guess I did too much on Sunday. I did get a lot accomplished this weekend. Just wish it wouldn't affect me this way.

Happy Sunday!
We made it back home today from our quick trip to Chicagoland. We were lucky the drives up and back were relatively quick and painless. I enjoyed getting to spend the day with my son on Saturday. I miss him already.

Another hot day ahead. I'm not really complaining though. Much less laundry washing shorts and tshirts versus jeans and sweatshirts!

I got all of my inside work done yesterday including laundry. Today we'll clean up outside and then I need to freeze tomatoes!

Have a great day!

Happy Saturday! We ended up driving back up to Chicagoland on Friday to help my son with some things over the weekend. It's about 10 degrees hotter here than it is where we live in Tennessee.....crazy weather! We plan to drive home tomorrow so it's been two days driving for one day of help, but I think it was worth it.

It's officially Fall and we're under a heat advisory! That's strange! I'm glad it's the weekend though. We have things to get done so hopefully it won't be that bad. It's suppose to be windy.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Kay-That sounds like my mom. She has a lot of anxiety also. Tomorrow we have a grave site service for my Uncle and my mom has been freaking out about that because it's suppose to be 95 degrees. Yes, it's going to be hot, but if it starts bothering her, I hope my sister lets her sit in the car to cool off. I won't be able to make it. I will be at the gathering afterwards. My mom would be more comfortable if I was taking her.

This hot weather is not typical of Sept. weather here in MN. I don't like having the A/C on this late in the year. Everything is so dry. We could use a steady rain right now. Sunday it should be a bit cooler. That will be nice.

Happy Thursday!
Yesterday was a long day. Took my mom to the eye doctor for her shots for macular degeneration. It takes FOREVER at that particular doctor's office and my mom was nervous because she couldn't find her credit card. She had accidentally left it in another purse and we were able to find it right away when we got her back to assisted living place. She has a lot of anxiety anyway, but this put her over the top. I was never so glad to get home after it was all over. It was a five hour deal from start to finish.

Kay-He is 23. He was feeling better yesterday, but it was still scary. His girlfriend was at school last night so I picked him up and brought him to the house so I could feed him before I took him home. This way, I'm guaranteed that he eats. Plus it's not fast food.

Yesterday was warm and it's suppose to keep getting warmer. 90's for Friday and Sat. Too late in the year for those temps. More A/C use!

Have a nice We'd.!

Becky, I'm sorry to hear about your son. I hope he's okay. How old is he? I have two boys, ages 39 and 38. One's married and lives in Chicago. The other is single and lives in the suburbs of Chicago. He's VERY shy and will probably be single all his life. We go to help him out with things about three times a year.

Yesterday started out on a not so good note. My son had passed out in the shower. He's ok. Nothing major. Just a sinus infection, fever and his blood pressure was a little low. Because he wasn't feeling good, he also took a hot shower. It was a scare though. I don't like those phone calls what so ever.

Today I'm hoping for a quiet day. The weather should be pretty good. We have another warm up coming the end of the week.

Have a great day!

Happy Friday!

Once again, I apologize for being MIA. I've been travelling the past couple weeks. Right now I'm in Illinois visiting my son. I think we're going home on Sunday and I hope things will be back to normal by Monday afternoon. We got a lot of wind and rain from Irma at our house, so I'm not sure what we will be facing when we get home.

My Dr. appt. went ok. I'm being referred to a Rheumatologist to see if I have arthritis. I feel I do, but I want a proper diagnosis so I know where to go from here. He agrees. Otherwise I'm pretty healthy.

It's 45 degrees this morning. Way too cold for this time of year. It's good sleeping weather, but that's about it.

Have a nice Wednesday!

It was a great weekend. Yesterday felt like Fall with the temps. Some of the leaves are starting to turn around here too. Too early, but the trees are either stressed or have other issues.

Today I have my Dr. appt. I'm hoping he can help me out with my pain. Especially my sciatic nerve.

Have a nice day!

The sun came out late yesterday afternoon finally, but all of a sudden last night I could here it down pouring. Now most of the week should be sunny.

Work went better yesterday aside from my managers attitude. This woman should not be a manager. She can't handle it. She stresses everyone out.

Have a great Tuesday! It's my run day!

Knock on wood, I haven't had any issues after having the lymph nodes removed.

The weather here has been anything but nice. It's been cloudy and looking like rain. Periodic sprinkles. It's suppose to become nice and sunny, but so far it's not.

I had a pretty nice weekend. I got more accomplished than I thought I would. Now it's Monday and back to work. I'm already missing my time off and I'm looking forward to the next day off!

Have a nice Monday!

Happy Saturday!

I had a weird thing going on with my underarm yesterday on the side I had all my lymph nodes out. It was hurting like crazy out of the blue. I'm pretty sure it was a pinched nerve because my ring and pinkie fingers felt like it was going numb. As long as I kept my arm elevated away from my body, it felt better. The minute I put my arm by my side, it hurt and the numb feeling would return.

Whatever it was, it's gone this morning and I'm back to normal!

Breast cancer treatment.....the gift that keeps on giving.

Kay-That is so sad. Cancer stinks! They've come so far in the treatment but yet have so far to go.

Yesterday was another nice day. I was really tired though because of the lack of sleep. It was better last night, but I have sleep to make up.

Today is going to be another beautiful day and then there's rain in the forecast thru early next week.

Have a nice day!

Happy Wednesday!

It's actually been a sad morning. I just learned that a woman I knew from the fitness center died yesterday from lung cancer. She had only been diagnosed about a month ago and seemed very fit. Then my husband got a call from his niece to learn that his sister was just diagnosed with cancer of the urethra. She had been in a lot of pain for over a month, so her diagnosis didn't come as a complete surprise. On the way home from the fitness center, I got a message that one of the women in my chemo support group who had the exact same diagnosis as me at the same time....and then went on to stage IV about six months ago is doing poorly and is being admitted to the hospital. Last, but not least, after we got home, I learned that another woman in the same support group and also with the same original diagnosis as me in in the hospital on a ventilator and seems to be getting worse. Wow...when it rains it pours. Did I mention that I hate cancer?

All of this makes me so grateful to be in pretty good shape!

It has finally cooled down outside. It was a beautiful day yesterday. A little breezy, but nice. I went for a run after work and came home full of energy. I paid the price last night though. My legs were killing me. I didn't sleep well at all. I finally got up and used the heating pad which helped somewhat. Maybe exercise needs to be done in the morning.

It's already Wednesday! This week is going by fast!

Have a great day!

Happy Tuesday!

Yesterday was a very interesting day at work. We had 4 power outages and the place was filled with students and employees that didn't know what they were doing. Hopefully today will go a little better.

We had some rain yesterday but it did clear up in time for the eclipse. It was very warm and humid. Cooler air should be back today.

Have a nice day!

Good Morning!

I got down to our Farmers Market later than usual yesterday and it was really busy. Next time I will go my usual time when there aren't as many people. I didn't pick up much this time.

We probably won't be seeing any of the eclipse here due to storms in the forecast. It seems we are having quite a wet August plus it's been on the cooler side for the most part.

I've got a lot to get done today. We were going to go to a parade, but I didn't get much done yesterday so I really need to work on stuff here today. I'm ok with that. The parade has really gone down hill the past few years. It's more advertising than anything. Plus I'm going out to find me another pr of comfortable non slip shoes for work.

Happy Saturday!

Becky, I'm glad you at least have some kind of mat now.

The local farmer's market was hopping this morning. Our town is all abuzz about the eclipse since we are right in the middle of the path. My biggest concern right now is about going to pick up my mom that morning. She is normally a 1/2 hour drive away, but I'm not sure how the traffic will be.

The Director for the food program got us a mat. It's not the best but it's better than nothing. My manager didn't say anything about it, but I'm sure she didn't like it. I don't really care. I wore a different pair of shoes yesterday which helped a bit but I still need a better pair so that's on my list of things to do this weekend. This is where it stinks to get older. All of the aches and pains!

We keep having light rain daily which has made my DH have to cut the grass this weekend. He was hoping to do it during the week so the weekend could be free. Hopefully he can get to it tonight so we can get out and do things tomorrow. I will start it if I can. I'm going for a run this morning and then I have some furniture I need to put a finish on to get them out of the garage. So if I get them done and my legs arent hurting too bad, I will get out and at least start the lawn.

Have a great weekend!

Becky, I'm sorry to hear about the mat situation. You are right that they are expensive. Costco has them at a much lower price than anywhere else that I've seen if you end up having to buy one. We got one at Costco about six months ago when we saw them for the lower price. (I don't remember what we paid, but it was a deal compared to everywhere else we have seen...and it's a nice mat.)

It's raining here again this morning. I don't mind, it means I don't have to water the plants!

emoticon My first day back to work didn't go well. They had done a total remodel of the area which is really nice, but they weren't done and things were a mess. In addition to that, there were no matts to stand on. When I was ready to leave, I told my manager that I needed a mat and she told me I had to buy my own! I couldn't believe it. They are expensive and as an employer, it is their responsibility to provide mats for the cashiers. My husband knows her manager well, and asked him about it, and he told him that they have mats and I don't have to buy my own. We'll see if there's one down there today. Needless to say, I'm looking for another job. I like the time off we get, but it's not worth feeling miserable when it's time to come home. I'm so glad it's Friday. I'll have a couple of days to clear my head!

It's going to be a mess at work today. They aren't ready to open, but they are opening anyway. Good thing I'm only working 4 hrs. I would like to keep these hrs if possible. We will see.

Good Morning!

This week is going by fast again. I have to go in for some training this morning. Tomorrow I am back to work. Back to shuffling my schedule around again.

The weather has been really nice. It's been in the 70's, but should start warming up into the 80's this weekend.

Kay-I too had my lymph nodes remove from my left arm. When I do weight lifting, I can feel when I've used too much weight.

Happy Tuesday! I did a really tough (to me) weight lifting class yesterday, but I seem to be okay today. I have to be careful with my left arm due to having my lymph nodes out on that side, but it's not swollen today. Life is good!

We had a bit of rain overnight. We could use more though. There are possibilities throughout the week, but not great chances.

I finally got some furniture painted yesterday. It's been sitting in the garage for a few weeks now and I wanted to get it done before I went back to work. I still need to put a finishing coat on it, but I should be done with it by Wed.

I am totally not ready to head back to work. I still have things I need to finish doing. Oh well, I had the whole summer and I left them till the end. Very typical! My mom is the one that's not happy though. I need to change up my schedule so I can spend more time with her than just Saturdays. I will miss my Friday grocery shopping day.

Have a nice Monday!

We had a bit of rain overnight and today shouldn't be a total washout now. I've got plenty to do around here so it doesn't really matter. This week is going by a little too fast. I wish it would slow down some.

Have a great day!

I'll be spending the afternoon with my mom too. I take her to the eye doctor every six weeks for shots for wet macular degeneration. She hates the shots and gets very nervous about getting them. I'm always exhausted after I drop her off. The good news is that once this is over, we don't have to do it again for another six weeks!

I was tired yesterday afternoon too. I went for an early morning run, followed by a meeting. I sat for 2 1/2 hrs freezing so by the time I got home and ate lunch, I was ready to crawl under a blanket and take a nap. It took awhile for me to warm up. Today, I'm planning on going for another run, followed by going out to my moms and then hopefully coming home and doing some painting. I have a cabinet to sand and paint and I would like to get it done before I go back to work.

Have a nice Wed.!

It was a beautiful day yesterday. We haven't had to turn the A/C on for awhile now. Today should be about the same. I have a meeting this morning about returning to work so I guess summer is coming to an end! Still have many things to do because I saved them till now! emoticon

Kay-I don't do much weight lifting but I can relate to the soreness when I do. We have a weight machine at home and I use it occassionally. I always know when to stop or when I'm using too much weight because my armpits will start hurting. Plus I get the feeling that my implants are going to pop out.

Yesterday was a beautiful day. It got a little warmer than I expected, but not too warm to where we had to turn the A/C on. We have more rain in the forecast today which is ok, because I have house stuff to do today.

Happy Friday!

We have line dancing and weight lifting classes back to back on Fridays. The weight lifting classes have been very helpful to me to regain strength on my cancer side. I had a full ALND on that side. It's weird how sore my armpit is after each class. I think the weight training might be breaking up scar tissue under there which would be a good thing. I've been very gradually increasing the weight of the dumbells I use. I really like the class because it gets me to do exercises that I've been too lazy to do at home!

We are having a taste of Fall here. The temps really dropped yesterday and it's a very cool morning. I have a busy morning ahead. I hope the sun comes out and it warms up a bit. Too cool for this time of year.

Have a great day and a nice weekend!

Thanks for the comment about my mom. She actually walks with a walker and can barely stand without it. I just moved it out of the way to take the picture. She has always taken care with her appearance. I think it's part of that generation to do that.

I'm going out to lunch today with a lady I just meet recently. She seems very nice, so I think lunch will be enjoyable even though we barely know each other.

Kay-looking at this picture, your mom doesn't look 93.

Today it's suppose to pretty much rain all day. Aside from going to an appt., it would be a really good day to stay inside. The temps are suppose to be on the cool side also. A little taste of fall.

We went line dancing this morning and then went over to visit with my mom in assisted living. We are having pop up thunderstorms this afternoon....pretty typical for the summer here.

Here's a picture of my mom that I took today. She's wearing new shoes that we took to her. She's 93.

Yesterday was a really nice day. A little on the warm side, but we had a quick storm pass through early last night which cooled things down a bit. We really needed the rain.

Today I have to take my car in for an oil change and then I think I will tackle a couple of projects I started earlier.

Have a great day!

Time to flip the calendar again! emoticon

Yesterday I worked about 2 1/2 hrs. pulling weeds at my moms. I can't believe they got that out of control. Typically I pull them often, but since I haven't been cutting my moms grass, I haven't done it. Today my legs are a little sore.

We're suppose to see quite a cool down later this week. I will look forward to not running the A/C for awhile.

Have a nice day!

Good Morning!

We had a very nice weekend! I finally got to cook a bigger meal yesterday. I haven't done much cooking this summer because of everyone's schedules. My DS and his girlfriend were available to come so that was nice.

Kay-That was nice to have a tax free weekend. We are lucky that MN doesn't tax clothing, but WI does and I shop often in WI. They're sales tax is lower than ours though which is nice for other things.

Today I'm headed over to help clean up my moms yard. I was going to do it over the weekend, but when I went there and took a look at the job I would have to do, I decided No. Plus it was hot and I would've been working in the sun. Right now it's overcast and it's suppose to be partly cloudy today. We have rain chances off and on all week. Maybe I'll get some stuff done around the house!

Happy Sunday!

We are having a "tax free" weekend this weekend in Tennessee on clothing, computers and school supplies. My laptop has been gradually dying. It was a Chromebook that I bought for myself 4 years ago when we had to stop by Sam's Club on the way home from my first chemo. I'd never had a Chromebook before, but I fell in love with this one. Sam's stopped selling Chromebooks shortly after that. Well, last night, on the way home from eating out with friends, we stopped into Sam's to pick up some bagels. Lol and behold, they were selling Chromebooks this weekend. It's the first time I've seen them at Sam's in almost 4 years! I got the very last one they had in stock. I feel like I really lucked out!

Happy Sunday!

We are having beautiful weather here! Dry! We've had so much rain lately that I sort of neglected my flowers. Hopefully I didn't do too much damage. Yesterday felt like mid to late Aug. I'm not ready for that! I've got too many things that I need to get done before heading back to work.

Kay-that sounds like our ground here. We have clay and when it's dry, it's hard as a rock. It's almost impossible to pull weeds. The best time to get out there is right after it rains or in the Spring when everything is still wet. When we moved here, I put a lot of organic stuff in there to try and loosen up the dirt. Didn't quite work. I would've needed a lot more.

Have a great day!

Happy Saturday!

Ran errands this morning and will be going out for dinner tonight with friends.

When they cut down the trees, they also took out a big bush along the back side of our house. The back is lined with elephant ear plants so I have been trying to transplant some of them to fill in the gap where the bush was. The ground is hard as rock there and filled with roots from the bush so I've only managed to get two elephant ear plants moved so far. I think I'll wait until after a hard rain and see if I can move the plants easier then.

I've never leased a car (except for a couple days at a time) so I really don't have any idea how picky they would be at the end of a lease.

We lost our last remaining tree last year. We haven't planted another one and won't until we decide on landscaping. Because our yard is clay, it shifts every year. Plus our yard isn't level so it requires us to put some sort of retaining wall with a level area.

Today I'm taking my car in for maint. and to discuss if I want to get another lease car or buy it out. I really like my car and I'm not sure if I want to go thru the hassles of leasing again. You have to be so careful with the car. I do have a scrape on the bumper that I have no idea where it came from. I just get nervous at what they'll find with it. I don't have have door dings on it and just normal scratches from whatever. Unless you never take it out, you're going to have something. Afterwards I need to go and get some more paint samples for our family room.

Have a nice Friday!

Becky

Happy Thursday!

We had a small tree fall down in a storm a couple weeks ago. Yesterday, the tree people came and got rid and took care of several other nuisance trees and bushes that were in our yard. It's so nice to see that stuff gone. It's amazing how fast a good tree company can get rid of things that would take us days. Worth every penny!

The humidity was terrible yesterday. I had a good PT appt. I hope I can get things resolved before I go back to work in less than a month. Summer is going by way too fast and it needs to slow down a bit.

Kay-Sounds like fun!

We were having wonderful weather. No A/C and I accomplished alot. I'm going thru closets and cupboards right now and cleaning out. Next, we hit the lower level which is where everything throughout the years has accumulated. That will be a chore and we're hoping to get the boys over here to help dig in. Since we became empty nesters, I have the need to really clean house. I'm tired of the clutter.

We have a line of storms headed our way this morning. I'm hoping it doesn't turn into an all day thing. I have a PT appt. this morning and then I'm going to my moms before I come home and tackle another area of the house.

Have a great day!

Becky

Hi Becky, I'm sorry Abbey had to deal with so much noise. Fireworks are legal where we now live. They weren't in Illinois where I lived for years. I agree that there's a lot of fireworks in illegal states. We probably have more down in Tennessee....but not a lot more.

We've been busy with house guests the past few days. It's my husband's best friend from high school and his wife. It's been nice having them because it makes us get out more. We went kayaking on a river about an hour's drive from us yesterday. We have had tons of rain and the dam upstream was regenerating so the water was swift. Not much paddling involved since the water moved us along. It was nice!

I had a very productive day yesterday. Just wish it would've lasted longer so I could've accomplished a little more. Oh well, there's today!

emoticon The weekend is over and hopefully it will be a quiet week. Free from storms and fireworks. Abbey needs a break. It was a stressful weekend for her and a weekend where I was about to go outside and hang some people. I just don't understand why people think it's ok to blast loud fireworks and think the neighbors will be fine with it. It's illegal here and we have a cop right across the street. So much disrespect. Plus the cop just ignores it. My neighbors across the street had to deal with their dogs also. The person doing the fireworks has dogs, but I'm sure if they acted up he'd smack them. Anyway, enough complaining. The weather has finally cooled down and it looks like it's going to be a pretty nice week ahead.

It's Friday again! I wish these weeks would slow down. We're having some pretty hot weather this week. There's a possibility for more storms this afternoon. If only it would cool it down.

Have a wonderful day and a great weekend!

emoticon We had quite a few storms go thru over night. Mostly heavy rain. We were waken by a weather alert on our phone for flooding. It didn't affect us. It mostly was for mudslides and to alert people to be careful while driving. There was anywhere from 4-7 inches of rain.

Today should be dry, sunny, hot and humid. I think this afternoon is going to be a nap afternoon.

The heat and humidity are going to hit us bad today. Early morning run hopefully before it gets too bad. We do have a chance of storms later today, but that I will believe when I see it! Everything is do dry here.

Yesterday turned out a bit warmer than forecast. It was still a nice day and I got a lot accomplished. Today it's back to a normal week. (I hope!)

Becky, so sad about your son's friend and so unexpected. You are right, it's a reminder/wake up call to live life while we can.

We had a quiet day on Saturday. I did have a 30% off coupon from Kohl's so I used it to find a couple blouses to wear with some jeans that I had gotten earlier that are a pale blue/purple that I didn't have anything to wear with them. Afterward, we met friends for dinner. It was a fun evening.

I've started a new medication for my asthma that seems to be helping a lot. It will take a while to see for sure, but it's looking good.

Congrats. Kay! It's always nice to win something especially when it's something you use!

It was hot yesterday. We were down by the river for a Craft Beer tour. Although I don't really like this type of beer, it was a good time. Ran into people I haven't seen in a long time. Unfortunately afterwards my youngest text me and told me a friend of my oldest son had passed away. I had to break the news to my son. It was hard especially since that friend had been to our house last weekend for a campfire. He died from an aortic aneurysm. Only 25 yrs old. This is why I tell people to enjoy life. You never know what can happen.

Cooler temps today, but we can't get it to rain for anything.

Have a great day!

Becky

Happy Saturday!

I found out yesterday that I won a raffle for a free month at the local fitness center where go four times a week. I'm always surprised when I win something! It was a free raffle and I only entered once (others were entering multiple times). Must have been my lucky day!

Hot and humid today!

There is a Craft Beer tour going on down by the river today and that's where we'll be. My son wanted to go and he wanted my other sons to go too, but they had plans so he gets my husband and me. Neither of us are drinkers so it should be interesting.

There is some rain in the forecast for tonight. It's not a big chance, but hopefully that will change. It will be enough to cool things down a bit for tomorrow.

Becky, I hope you get some rain too.

Today is "line-dancing" day for us. The room we dance in at the fitness center was recently painted and the floor refinished. It's been almost a month, but there are still fumes that bother me. On Wednesday, I just stayed for half the class. We'll see how it is today.
