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!

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.

Kay-That's good that you have somewhere cool to walk. I know a lot of people use the Malls to walk in.

We're having a couple of cool days here, but the heat returns on Saturday. It seems like the same areas keep getting the rain. Plus it's always heavy rain. We could use a bit of it right now. We will be heading into the dry month before long.

Have a nice Friday!

Becky, I was thinking you were about a year ahead of me. Congratulations on 5 years!

Sorry you didn't get rain. There was horrible flooding yesterday in Northern Illinois where I used to live. They must have had quite a downpour.

My pulmonary function test showed significant small airway blockage. I'm hoping my doc thinks its all just asthma instead of (more permanent) COPD. It's been muggy here so I'm staying indoors in the air conditioning so I can breath better. Our local fitness center has an indoor track that I've been using for walking. It's been a big help.

Kay-I'm 5 yrs now. I can't believe how time has flown.

It has been hot and humid here. We did have a few storms overnight, but nothing major. Thurs. should be a nice cool down thru the weekend. That I will look forward to.

Becky, I hope you are feeling better by the time you read this.

We had a quiet 4th of July, but I did have a family get together the Sunday before and had 9 people. That's about normal for us. Our get togethers are getting smaller with time. Sometimes we just have 4 or 5 people.

I'm going for a pulmonary function test today for my asthma to see how my lungs are doing. I've done this test several times before over the years. It will help my doctor and I figure out a better treatment plan for me. My asthma is not horrible now, it's been much worse in the past, but the long-term effect on my lungs of having asthma isn't good. Eventually, it turns into COPD so the better I can keep things under control, the better off I'll be.

I just had my checkup with my breast surgeon and MO on July 5th. Everything looks good! Next check up in six months. On Aug. 1, it will be my 4 year anniversary from diagnosis. I'm really happy about that. I was so convinced I was a "goner" going through treatment. With triple negative, if I make it though this next year, my chances of recurrence are very slim. The first three years were very scary because that's when recurrence is most likely with TNBC. This last year has been much easier mentally.

The weather has been great so far this weekend. I wasn't feeling the greatest yesterday. I wasn''t sick, just my joints were sore and I had a headache and not much for energy. Got better later on except for the headache. Another headache this morning, but so far it's better.

It was a very warm and humid day yesterday. We usually take food down to the park and eat before the concert but we opted for going somewhere and eating first. We then watched the storm clouds go down the river. They were very interesting and very dark. The concert went on as planned but that storm system brought in much cooler temps. I could've used a sweater. The concert was nice.

Today we are heading to Minneapolis for the day. It should be a beautiful day!

Have a great Friday!

The storms stayed away yesterday so we were able to get things moved. I'm so glad I'm not the one moving! I washed all of the bedding and then ran to the grocery store to pick them up some food. I wanted to make sure they had something to eat.

Storms are again in the forecast today. It is going to be hot and steamy. It is summer!

weird day - I was working from home and hoping it would be slow but it was just slow enough for me to think I could slip away from my computer and then something else could come in. I'm finally off off work and have tomorrow off so mini-weekend ahead.

I am the only one I have to live with for the rest of my life

It was a beautiful day yesterday. A bit humid but otherwise nice. The weekend flew by and now it's Monday already! DH has the week off so this morning we're planning on going for a bike ride. I need to get back into biking so hopefully we can do more of this. It will depend on my sciatic nerve.

I'm glad you were able to get out. I remember how I felt after my surgeries and getting out on my own for the first time.

Yesterday turned into a lazy day. Not exactly what I wanted. It just turned out that way. I'm hoping today is better.

I went grocery shopping mid-day yesterday too. Crazy! Was my first opportunity to be out on my own after surgery though, so I wasn't going to miss out. Was nice to be out in the world, but tiring. Was a long trip. Able to go to library and bank this morning. Nice to get back to more normal things.

It's officially July! Time to flip the calendar again! It always seems like I just do that!

Kay-I'm glad your hopefully getting better treatment for your asthma. Someone on one of my other teams has been having a terrible time with her asthma this year too. It's been a crazy summer weather wise.

We are starting to see some summer weather again finally. I hate the fact that when I go to the grocery store, I can't wait to get outside into the heat because it is so cold inside. Speaking of grocery stores, I made the mistake of going mid morning yesterday. I never thought about the holiday and they were so busy. We never really do much for the 4th anymore because my kids are usually working. Plus it's on a Tuesday. To me, the summer seems to start winding down once we get past the 4th. The back to school sales start. Stores are putting out their Fall stuff. None of which I'm ready to see!

Have a wonderful weekend! No real big plans here!

Happy Friday!

I agree, Becky, this summer is flying by. I always think of the 4th of July as the mid-point.

I saw my PCP today to get onto a better treatment plan for asthma. I'm going to start measuring my peak flow rate every day. It starts going down before symptoms are apparent so it helps in getting the jump on things before they go south.

Summer is going by fast. It just seems like we celebrated Memorial Day and now it's July 4th! If only Winter went this fast.

We're beginning to see a warm up now. A little on the humid side though. That part I can do without.

Have a great weekend!

emoticon For some reason, I keep waking up between 3:30-4:00 in the morning. I try to go back to sleep but it's not a good sleep.

We had plenty of rain yesterday. There were a couple small tornados around us, but we saw mostly rain. It should be pretty decent today with a chance of rain later. Plus its suppose to be in the 80's today. It's a bit on the muggy side this morning which I'm sure is due to the rain. It looks like its finally going to warm up next week. It better. It's going to be July. We have plenty of time for cool to cold weather. I can deal with the short summer we have.

Today I'm meeting a friend and we're going to just hang out for awhile. She's been redoing her house and she's finally done so I'm anxious to see the final results. Plus we'll get some lunch too.

Have a wonderful day!

Happy Wednesday!

Welcome back Terri. I'm so sorry to hear about your MBC. I hope your treatment plan doesn't cause to many SE's. Congratulations on being NED. That's wonderful and I hope it lasts a long, long time.

Becky, I hear you on being tired of cold weather. We had similar weather pretty much every day when we were in northern Europe. The highs were in the 50's or 60's and at least a little rain every day. All I can say is that I'd rather have that than the heat in the SW part of the US right now.

I'll be taking my mom to the eye doctor today for her shots for macular degeneration. She's been getting these every six weeks or so for about four years now. She hates them, but they work.

I think the asthma flair I had last week was due to paint fumes. Our local fitness center had repainted the room where we do line dancing and aerobics. I thought I could handle the fumes, but apparently not. I hope that's what caused the problem, because it's something temporary.

It's a very cold morning. Only 48 degrees right now. If this were march, the furnace would be on. Should see low 70's for highs. I'm getting so tired of this weather. Yesterday was not a nice day until late. We had bursts of rain thru the afternoon. It was cold too. At least the sun is shining right now. It is a good cleaning day though and that's what I will be doing.

Have a nice Monday!

Terry-Welcome Back! I love your attitude! We can be so hard on ourselves and I'm glad you're taking your life back. I hope you've had to deal with Cancer for the final time!

Yesterday wasn't a good day. I ended up with major indigestion again. I've finally figured out that I can no longer go out to eat for dinner. No matter what I eat I still wake up with that burning. So from now on, I will be doing lunch so I have plenty of time for everything to digest. Unless we do dinner about 4 o'clock. Today I'm feeling much better so hopefully I will accomplish more than I did yesterday. Another day of rain in the forecast. emoticon We had a quick storm pass thru yesterday afternoon. The winds weren't that strong, but apparently strong enough to knock out our power for a few hrs. again.

Have a nice day!

Hello Everyone,
I haven't been here in a while. I just completed 6 months of chemotherapy for the 3rd time. I have metastatic breast cancer. There is no evidence of the disease right now, thank you JESUS. I had written myself off for DEAD. I have had an epiphany yesterday. I am VERY much alive and here for a reason. I got up this morning, went to the gym and walked on the treadmill for an hour. I surprised myself, I never thought I would make it 10 minutes. I HAVE A NEW ATTITUDE. I am going to keep strong and faithful in this life. Steroids and fluid has put 17 pounds on me, so I am going to put my focus and getting rid of it. Thanks so much for listening.

Sparkpeople thank you for helping me lose this weight!!!

Kay-the pollen and mold reports have been high around here. We've been so wet lately though. My son has had major sinus issues and he was doing really well all Spring. We had another beautiful day yesterday but the rain is suppose to make a return this afternoon. im hoping it holds off till this evening.

Happy Friday!

My asthma has come back again now that we're home. I must be allergic to something here that wasn't on the cruise. Maybe, I'll just have to go live on a cruise ship! I have an appointment with my PCP next Friday (she's out of town right now).

We're getting a lot of rain right now. It rained all day yesterday and it's raining this morning. Good day to be a duck!

emoticon Well, should be sleeping right now. Hopefully this isn't going to be what my day is like! It's probably because it was a rainy, gloomy day yesterday and I took a nap!

Have a wonderful Friday!

emoticon Nothing like having to wake up an hr. early because the cat is throwing up! He couldn't wait just 1 more hr. I know I sound insensitive, but I swear he does this to get us up and feed him cuz he's always meowing and going to his food bowl after he does this.

Rainy day ahead. Unfortunately we don't need the rain.

Another cool morning. After the morning rain yesterday, it was a beautiful day. Today should be another one. The temps are great for being outside. Not so much for swimming though.

Have a nice Wed.

Kay-That sounds like a really nice vacation. Whenever I see pics of all of the old buildings I think I'd love to go there. I'm glad you were able to feel better too. So when and where is the next vacation?

The weather here is beautiful right now. It felt a little like Fall yesterday. This morning it is 54 degrees. It's only suppose to get into the lower to mid 70's today. It's excellent sleeping weather. Chances of rain, but only small chances. I need to start doing more on my summer vacation besides things around the house. This time is going so fast. I won't be going to other countries unless we drive up to Canada which probably won't happen, but the Twin Cities would be nice.

Have a great day!

Hi Becky,

I'm back!

I've been on a month-long vacation/cruise to Scandinavia, Scotland, England, Germany, Estonia and Russia. We had a wonderful time. I was most looking forward to St. Petersburg and the Shetland Islands of Scotland and really enjoyed them, but I have to say that Tallinn, Estonia, Flam, Norway and Warnemunde, Germany turned out to be some of my favorites. I had never heard of them before we picked out this cruise. They are all small towns with fascinating character. I'd go back to any of them in a heartbeat.

I was pretty sick with a combination of bronchitis and out of control asthma for about two months before we left. I kept thinking it would get better. Two days before our flight out of Chicago to get to Copenhagen, I finally went to a walk-in clinic and got some prednisone and an antibiotic. Thank goodness they worked! The first few days of the trip were rough as I was recouperating, but by the end of the first week, I was fine. I'm so glad I went to the doctor, or I would have continued to be sick. The steroid really helped calm down the asthma component and the antibiotics kicked the bronchitis to the curb. I was lucky the medications worked.

Here's a pic of St.s Peter and Paul Cathedral in St. Petersburg. The buildings from the days of the Imperial Government were amazing, but it made me sad to think of all the common people that suffered horribly during that time period as the wealthy lived in over-the-top opulence.

emoticon Although I made bad food choices, I also got my exercise in, but because of some circumstances, we didn't eat until almost 9 last night and that really thru me off. Luckily I didn't stuff myself, but my stomach still can't tolerate that so now this morning I'm left with really bad indigestion. emoticon I hope it doesn't throw my whole day off. It's a perfect morning and I've got things to do.

Terribleness food choices yesterday, but I knew it was going to happen. I did do walking (it's our annual festival). Tonight we will be going out for burgers, but not until later. My kids work and we're planning on eating right before the fireworks. Unless it's raining!

I actually got quite a bit done yesterday despite a headache. The temps didn't get as warm as forecast or at least it didn't feel that warm. I turned the A/C on just before I went to the ballgame and turned it off when I got home. Today should be a beautiful day.

Have a great day!

Good Morning! I am back after recovering from a 3rd cancer. I have gained 17 pounds from stress eating and/or steroids. I need a new focus other than going to chemo treatment every week and doctors visits. So I am going to focus on my weight loss and getting my strength back. Please pray for me.

Sparkpeople thank you for helping me lose this weight!!!

It finally rained overnight! It may make it more humid, but we have needed it so bad. The weekend was busy. By Sunday afternoon, I was beat! I had a little nap. Very little, but it was something. Today I need to clean my house and make dinner. I haven't been doing a lot of cooking lately due to the fact everyone is so busy. I usually will make a hot dish that lasts a couple of days. That will be the plan today. It's pretty much been too hot to cook.

Have a great Monday!

Yesterday was another nice day. We got a little rain over night. Not enough to do much though. I guess I may have to water the grass. There is no rain in sight till maybe Sat. Night and so far that's only 20%.

It is finally summer here! I could accomplish so much more if I don't have this achey body. I wanted to bike yesterday, but after cleaning and doing other stuff, I was done for it. I'm running this morning and then we will see what I'm up to doing afterwards.

Have a great day!

Lol!

The last couple of days have been pretty hot. We will get a break the next couple of days now. No rain in sight. It's funny cuz we couldn't shut the rain off there for awhile and now we need it and can't find it! I'm hoping to get a lot accomplished the next couple of days.
