Happy Sunday,

Inga, I'm glad you are getting some support coping with your mom's death.

We have been getting a lot of much needed rain this week in middle and east Tennessee. We've had about 6 inches of rain total over the week and it's supposed to rain off and on for the next three days. The Gatlinburg fires were horrible. I'm so glad this rain is helping to bring the fires in the area under control.

Inga-I hope you had fun!

We got our first snow over night and early this morning. Yes, it's pretty, but now it can go away! I went to the mall yesterday and didn't do much shopping. It was packed and the stores were warm. I was wearing my winter jacket. I will go back sometime during the week when it's not busy. I can't believe how picked over a lot of the stores are already. Good thing for online shopping!

Have a nice Sunday!

Tip to reduce weight: First turn your head to the right and then turn it to the left. Repeat this exercise every time you are offered something to eat.

The tree emoticon Is all decorated! Now just keeping my fingers crossed that it lasts till Christmas.

Today I take my mom grocery shopping and then this afternoon I plan on getting out and doing some Xmas shopping. Not sure what I'm looking for, but hopefully I will find something.

It looks like we may see some snow this weekend. I'm not looking forward to that, but it shouldn't be much and the temps may cause most of it to melt. emoticon

Have a great weekend!

Inga-I hope shopping went well for you.

I'm feeling better. Not sure what it was.

It has been wet and gloomy here. I'm feeling it in my joints. We could really use some sun!

Tonight we're putting up our tree. Then the decorating will be complete! This week is going by fast! I need the weekend!

Becky, I hope whatever was going on with your digestive system yesterday was just a one-time thing.

It was really windy here yesterday and very overcast. We finally got much needed rain in the late evening. It's the first real rain we have had since mid-August. This morning, everything is back to being calm after a wild day yesterday.

Yesterday did not go as planned. About an hour after I got to work, I started having stomach pains. I made it thru work, barely. I came home and slept. Not sure what went on there, but I'm feeling a bit better today. Hopefully I can make it thru work today.

The weather is frightful outside. No snow, but rain and wind. At 36 degrees so it is cold and damp feeling. No sunshine in the forecast all week.

The holiday decorating is done! Well, almost. We bought our tree yesterday, but won't put it up till later this week. I cut way back on the decorating this year. I wasn't really in the mood. Maybe if they wouldn't rush the holiday. I don't know.

It's back to work today. I'm hoping this week goes by fast. The kids at school are going to be stressed the next couple of weeks cuz of finals. My son will graduate next Friday! I can't wait!

Have a great day!

emoticon I jumped on the scale this morning and it wasn't pretty. emoticon Today I have to get back to my healthy eating again and I need to get my butt out and exercise. I've had a couple of days bof being tired. I feel pretty good this morning so I'm hoping to get some cleaning done before I head out for a run. The next few days should see temps in the upper 40's to low 50's before we get back to the 30's again next week. No excuses here to get out.

I have 2 of my boys done for Xmas presents. I'm spending more than I typically do on them this year because both are looking for running watches. The other one isn't there yet so I need to come up with other gifts for him. Then I have the girlfriends and parents to finish up. I wish I could get that excitement that I once had for Christmas back. It's such a struggle now. Good thing you don't have to go shopping anymore though. Online shopping is so convenient. I love not having to go out and deal with people.

Have a great day!

Happy Wednesday!

I'm not normally a person with high anxiety, but I really have been feeling anxious about several different things that are going on. It gives me some idea of what people that have panic attacks must deal with on a routine basis. My goal today is to do at least one thing to address at least one issues that is causing me to feel so anxious. I need to make a phone call that I dread doing, but I have a feeling that I'll be at least somewhat less anxious after I make that call.

Becky, so sorry to hear the Holidays will be hard, I have also told my Family I want to be alone Thanksgiving too. Yes my Mom just died, and I also want to clean my home and listen to music. It has been an exhausting time, my family is understanding. Your Mom is in a different situation losing 2 loved ones, I hope somehow you can make her feel better and you too Becky. emoticon emoticon

went to my Scandinavian group last night, we are getting ready for our Holiday programs and events. I don't know if the team knows I am a Grandma, I have a dear granddaughter, Kenzie, she is 3. She calls me MorMor, that is swedish for Grandma.

My BIL will have the emoticon meal at his place, so I get my space, which I really need. emoticon emoticon

Have a wonderful Tuesday team. emoticon

I made it through Monday! I was in a bit of a down mood. I could've sat and cried many times throughout the day. The students helped me get thru it though. I came home and forced myself to get out and run which also helped work out some of my anxiety. I feel a little better this morning. The holidays are rough for me. Since my dad and brother passed away, my mom has chosen to spend the holidays by herself. It's tough to see someone alone when you have family with you. It's her choice, not mine, but it doesn't make it any easier. I will go and spend time with her, but it's not the same.

The weather is going to be interesting the next couple of days. Rain, snow and sleet is in the forecast. it will make for messy driving for sure.

Happy Monday!

Inga, I'm so sorry to hear about your mom. I hope she didin't suffer too much in the end.

The temperature dropped here over the weekend. It was about 20 degrees cooler this past Sunday than the Sunday before. We went for our usual Sunday walk in a local park and we were pretty much the only ones there. I saw one other person and that was it. It was a beautiful, but cool day.

It's a short week at work and I'm so ready! I have a full day today and a partial day tomorrow and then I'm off the rest of the week. We've been having Winter weather here. It's been very cold, but no snow. That I'm thankful for.

Pink Soldier,

So very sorry to hear of your mom's passing. But as we all know here, it is best for the suffering to be over for her and for you.

I strongly believe in a Higher Power and the Afterlife. I have had beautiful dreams of where my Daddy is waiting for all of his family to join him in Heaven. I am very excited to think of seeing him and getting to be with him forever in Heaven.

You will find your peace with your mom's passing in time.

I will pray for your strength and healing in this painful bittersweet time.

It was cold yesterday. We went shopping in the morning and every time you stepped out of a store that cold wind hit you! If felt like a January day. The only thing missing was the snow blowing in your face. Much quieter today. Not any warmer though.

Have a great Sunday!

Gumdoc, I'm sorry to hear about your medication problem.

We woke up to a much-needed rain today. It's been 3 months since we had anything more than a minor sprinkle. Middle and east Tennessee have been in a major drought this fall.

Friday, I was happy because we started learning a new dance in my line dancing class. That's always fun because it forces me to really concentrate to get my feet moving in new ways. I'm not sure what the drawing is supposed to actually represent, but it is what I feel my brain has to go through to tell my feet to move in the right direction in time with the music. I always feel somewhat foolish as I'm learning, but that's part of the fun!

Gumdoctor-Glad to hear you're ok. It's funny how meds. can really mess you up sometimes.

Yesterday morning was beautiful! That changed quite fast. The temps. dropped and the winds picked up. I haven't seen it that windy in a long time. There were blizzards West of us. Thankfully we had just flurries. Nothing stuck to the ground. Today we're going to do a little shopping. Just to a few stores in town here. It's going to be too cold to be out today especially when we're not used to it. It's a soup day for sure!

Have a great day!

Would you believe I spent a night in the hospital last weekend??? For chest pain????

They kept me overnight to do all the tests to make sure there was no heart issues. Seems it was a reaction to a new medication I started the week before. Since I lost a day and half to that mess, I am really looking forward to getting some good work done this weekend.

Becky, that's great you will be hosting Thanksgiving. I've been doing it for my family for about 10 years now. Unfortunately, our family is getting smaller and smaller. It used to be about 20 people. This year, I think we will have 5.

I had my six month checkup with both my oncologist and my breast surgeon. Everything looks good. I didn't need any screenings or tests.

My hip continues to improve with the steriod shot I got. It still gets sore when I do too much, but otherwise, I'm okay.

Good Morning!

It's already Wednesday! This week is flying by.

I'm starting to get things together in my head as to what I'm going to be preparing for Thanksgiving dinner. I haven't cooked a big meal in a long time. I'm excited to do it this year because I'm off on Wednesday and I also have Friday off. The downside to all of this is that Christmas will be here before you know it and that I'm not looking forward to. It's just too much stress. I'm going to try and make it as stress free as possible this year since I'm off for a month starting Dec. 9.

The weather here has been nice, but starting Friday night, it's going to turn a little wintery. We could even see some snow flurries. emoticon

Have a nice day!

Good Morning!

It was such a beautiful day yesterday. I went for a nice run with my youngest son in the afternoon. It was a bit breezy, but the temps were in the 60's! This week should be about the same until Friday. Then we start seeing some Nov. temps. I hope they dont last long.

Have a great day!

Happy Sunday!

Hubby and I went for a nice walk in our local park this morning. It's starting to become our "Sunday morning thing." I think this is the third Sunday morning in a row that we have gone there for a walk.

Those look really good Kay! I love buting stuff like that because you only get a few. For me, it's enough for 1 per person in my house. This way, I don't end up over eating.

Yesterday was a shopping day and a visit with a friend. It was nice. Today will be filled with laundry, cooking, etc. I can't believe that Thanksgiving is fast approaching. Where has this time gone? It's going to be the first of the year before you know it. At least the weather has been holding on to late summer, early Fall. It's making this time of year bearable.

Have a great Sunday!

Happy Saturday!

My friends came for lunch yesterday and we all had a great time. I'm so glad that they came.

This morning, I went to a local craft fair. We went last year and I bought some peanut butter fudge there from one of the ladies in my line dancing class. It was so good that I asked her for the recipe last year. When she brought it to me, I realized how UNHEALTHY that fudge was! Wow!! Anyway, I decided not to make it at home, but just buy some more from her next time the craft fair came around. I bought 6 pieces this morning from her. I'm thinking I might eat one piece each Sunday evening as a treat. That should last me until close to Christmas! I've wrapped them up and put them away in the refrigerator for now.

I can't believe it's been almost a week since I posted here. I apologize for my absence.

I'm having two women friends over for lunch today. I'm looking forward to their visit. This is the first time I've had a women's only gathering since we moved to Tennessee three years ago. I've been slow about making friends here, but gradually I've gotten to know a few people.

There is so much hatred in the US right now and it's really scary. Too much violence. Riots! Whatever happened to just being upset and then moving on.

I had a great day yesterday. I prefer eating at home (much healthier), so hubby made a special meal for my birthday and I pulled out my grandmother's china, silver and crystal to make it extra special.

emoticon Kay! I hope you had a great day!

Yes, the 5k is an organized event. We have quite a few 5k's during the summer, but they tend to wind down in August. We do have a few after that and this is one of them. We were lucky to have mild temps. for this race this year which makes it that much more enjoyable.

The whole weekend was a good weekend. Minus the football game! We accomplished quite a bit and enjoyed the outdoor weather. I've got a 4 day week ahead of me. I'm looking forward to a 3 day weekend coming up. Friday I'm getting my carpets shampooed and then Saturday we are going to go out and have fun! I've got some shopping to do and then we're going to meet up with friends. Can't wait! Until then, I need to get through this week.

Have a nice Monday!

Happy Sunday!

Today's my birthday (64th)! It's been a wonderful day that I really appreciate. After having cancer, I LOVE birthdays! We went for a walk this morning and had a special lunch at home using my grandmother's china, silver and crystal. We have special plans for the afternoon. The Beetle's song, "When I'm 64" has been running through my head all day.

It's not everyone that gets and extra hour to celebrate their birthday.....thanks to going off daylight savings time.

Becky, was the 5K and organized race? I used to run 5ks a lot when I lived in the Chicago area. There was one pretty much every weekend somewhere in the area. I can't remember ever running one at night. I bet it was fun!

We're going out to eat with some friends of ours tonight. We get together every other weekend. Other than that, I don't have much planned today.

My hip is pretty good this morning. I did a line dancing class yesterday and it didn't seem to bother my hip much. I think the PT exercises might be helping too....along with the shot.

Happy Friday!

Yesterday morning, I did PT and went to an aerobics class. It was a bit too much for my hip so ended up icing and resting it in the afternoon. This morning, it feels fine again. I'm hoping that it will continue to improve. Today, I plan to go a line dancing class. I think it will be okay.

Kay-That's great! I hope you continue to feel better.

It was a very quiet night last night. Very few kids out. Now it's November and we can start thinking about Thanksgiving! It just seems like it was just Labor Day! I don't know why these months fly by so fast. At least we're having mild weather to enjoy.

Happy November!

I saw the ortho doc yesterday. He diagnosed me with bursitis which is exactly what I had hoped he would say. I got a steroid injection in the bursa and a script for PT. I still feel sore this morning, but I think the shot is already starting to help. He said it would take about 24 hours for the shot to start kicking in.

Kay-that sounds like an amazing trip!

I am going to have to make an appt. with my Dr. I went for a run this morning which didn't bother it until I went to sit down. As long as I keep moving it feels ok for the most part. It's the sleeping that gets to me. Plus the standing at work.

Happy Halloween! emoticon

Becky, that's why I want to go to the doctor and find out what the problem is. I had a similar problem about a year ago with my knee hurting on the other leg. It turned out it was an IT band issue caused by weak glutes which I never would have guessed. After a few times doing the PT exercises, the issue quickly went away and hasn't come back. I'm hoping the sports medicine doc will be able to help me with this issue too. If not, I'll talk to my MO about it when I see her in a couple weeks. Our symptoms are similar in that with rest a lot of my symptoms go away, but it still bothers me when I'm sleeping etc.

Hubby and I have just commited to a big vacation in late January. Fiji, Australia and New Zeland....I'm going no matter what is going on with my hip. It's the trip of a lifetime for us. It's a big reason why I finally made an appointment with the sports medicine doc. I want to be able to walk without pain on this trip!

The weekend is flying by again. Today I've got a lot of laundry and cleaning to do. Yesterday I spent the morning with my mom. I took her shopping again. Our new Saturday routine right now.

Kay-I'm going to have to make an appt. with my Dr. too and have my leg looked at. I'm fine when I move around for the most part. It's the sitting and laying that hurt. I just need to find out what it is and how to make it better. Resting it doesn't take the problem away and I'm not sure if PT would either. At least not until it's properly diagnosed.

We have nothing planned for the day. It's a beautiful morning here. Normally, we would go for a walk or a hike in one of the parks close by, but I've been trying to rest my hip. Tomorrow, I will see my sports medicine doctor and get a better idea what is going on.

Kay-I have no idea. I must have been fighting something. I felt good yesterday and I even got a run in after work. I'm still wondering if it's related to the regular pain I get. They tested my for inflamatories and it was slightly elevated but not close to the range that they look for. Right now I'm glad to be feeling better especially since it's the weekend.

I'm taking my mom shopping again today. She enjoys going shopping with me. She never liked to go alone and have to carry the bags upstairs. I'm happy to do that for her. I have to go and look for a Halloween shirt to wear to work on Monday. Nothing like telling me about it the weekend before. Like I want a challenge of finding something!

Have a great weekend!

Becky, I'm sorry you haven't been feeling well, but glad to hear things seem to be better. Do you have any idea what what going on?

It was really foggy here this morning. It's always kind of fun when it's like that as long as I don't have to drive anywhere. It didn't burn off untill almost 11 am which is very unusual.

I'm feeling much better this morning. Yesterday wasn't a very good day. I just about passed out at work. It was strange cuz it came on really fast. Luckily someone was around to take over so I could go sit down. I was able to work all day, but my stomach hurt after that. I'm so glad it's Friday. My DH will be home tomorrow night.

Have a wonderful day!

I went to work yesterday, but left about an hr. after I got there. It was a good day to lay around anyway. It was cold and rainy. I ended up turning the furnace on. I'm not feeling all that much better, but will go today. The guilt always gets the best of me. I hate leaving people short handed. It's going to be another gloomy day though, but should clear up in time for the weekend.

I just found out my sports medicine doc is able to see me this coming Monday for my hip pain. I'm hoping he will say it's bursitis and give me a cortisone shot. I'm kind of scared that it's bone mets. My next appointment with my oncologist is in three weeks, so I will find out...one way or the other what is going on. Fingers crossed for bursitis or arthritis!

Today I have a dentist appointment to have a tiny filling replaced that fell out on Monday. This is the third time that I've had to get this filling replaced over about a 30 year period....I guess that's not too bad.

It started raining around dinner time yesterday and now it's suppose to rain all day today. It's cold too! I'm still not going to turn the furnace on though. It would be a great day just to stay home under a quilt. I haven't been feeling the greatest the last couple of days and I woke up extremely aches this morning. If I feel this way tomorrow, I'm staying home!

Have a great day!

We did our outside work early this year. It's nice to have it done. I still have have pots of flowers outside. Last year I had them until thanksgiving. Probably won't make it till then this year if the forecast is right.

I love my new appliances! I don't want anyone but me to use the stove though. I want everything to stay looking new! emoticon

It's going to be a cold day today. Chances of rain overnight. It's been quite dry here lately.

Have a nice day!

Wow, Becky, you got a lot done! Congratulations on your new appliances. It's so nice to be able to do that.

Not much happening here. Working on getting the yard ready for winter, putting up our kayaks and bringing in the last of the houseplants. It's not supposed to frost for a while, but I thought I bring the plants in before I had to in a rush. They look so nice after spending the summer outside.

We are still having problems with that darn picture that fell. We have put it up several times with the 3M strips. We have come to the conclusion that either the wall or the picture frame is not flat so the strips aren't making good contact. Hubby is going back to picture hanger nails and wire to get it to stay up. Fortunately, there hasn't been any damage from the picture falling down.

Another day of accomplishments yesterday. I got all of my summer clothes put away and all of my fall/winter clothes washed and hung up. I have 2 bags of clothes that I'm going to donate. I got the refrigerator cleaned out and our chest freezer out in the garage cleaned out. Unfortunately I threw away way too much stuff that got list in there. Today we get our new stove and refrigerator. No more times changing on the oven! Can't wait! DH finished painting the inside of the garage. (He started it about 7 yrs ago!). We are making progress around here!

Today it's back to work although I'm not feeling the greatest. I was up quite a bit last night running to the bathroom, plus I had a headache and the chills. We will see how today goes.

I got quite a bit accomplished yesterday. Today it will continue. We have to clean out our stove and refrig. cuz we have new ones being delivered tomorrow. I need to clean out the big freezer out in the garage also. Plus I want to put my summer clothes away for the season. I don't think I'm going to need them anymore.

Well, I finally got around to contacting my sports medicine doctor's office to make an appointment to see if I can get some help for my hip pain. I really think it's bursitis or something along those lines. I'm hoping a steroid shot will get rid of the pain. I had one about 5 years ago in a frozen shoulder and (along with PT) it really helped. We are thinking of taking a big vacation in January to Australia, NZ and Fiji. I don't want to be limited by hip pain while I'm there.

The weather has been warm and dry here the past couple months. It finally rained a little a couple days ago and turned much colder. We brought in our houseplants yesterday.

I'm so glad it's Friday. It's been a long week. I have been sleeping better so that helps. I'm running this morning. Probably only about 2 miles. I'm finding that I don't hurt as bad with the lower mileage so far. I will attempt a longer distance on Sunday.

Kay-I hope the water bill isn't too bad. We too live in a smaller town and they are willing to help out most of the time.

I finally got a decent nights sleep last night. It felt really good and I can feel my mood is much better. The temps have been mild here which makes it quite warm in the house. It's Oct. and I have been running the A/C to cool things down. It doesn't have to run long thank goodness. After today, we shouldn't need it for awhile. The highs tomorrow are only suppose to be in the mid 50's.

Have a wonderful day!

Becky, you are right. I was lucky to have been there when the picture started to go. We like the 3M strips because they don't damage the walls (if used properly). Also, the artwork doesn't budge after it is hung (usually).

Our latest home issue is that a guy from the city just informed us that we have a leak on our side of the water meter. We are trying to get a plumber out today to work on it. No telling how bad our water bill will be this month. I'm hoping we can negotiate it down. Living in a small town like we do has it's perks. The city was been reasonable in the past when we had a similar issue a few years ago. Right now, the water is shut completely off. Good thing I took my shower already!

Kay-it was a good thing you were there. I haven't used those strips to hang pictures before. I will have to check them out. I'm having another restless night. This is getting so frustrating. Not sure where to turn. Is it a Dr. issue or a Chiropractor issue. Either way, I need to figure this out.

Happy Sunday!

It's still unusually dry here. We had a wet summer, but things suddenly changed in Sept. We haven't had any rain to speak of for almost two months. That's unusual.

I had a funny thing happen this morning. I tend to get up early. Today, I got up around 5 am. I was sitting in the living room having my coffee and looking at Facebook when I heard this strange noise that sounded like an animal scratching. It took me a few minutes to figure out what it was. We had hung a piece of artwork in a very high place using 3M strips about a week ago. Apparently, the artwork was too heavy and one side had become loose from the wall. It was dangling from just one side. I was able to get up there and take it down before it crashed and broke the frame and glass. I'm sure it would have fallen the rest of the way down in a few more minutes if I hadn't been there. I just felt very fortunate that I happened to be in the room at the time. Disaster averted! I love those 3M strips and will rehang it using them. This time we will use much stronger strips!

Here's a photo of the room that I had taken last week to show a friend how I had rearranged the room. It was the painting over the loveseat that was falling. You can see it would have probably broken the frame and glass if it had crashed down.

It's been a warm weekend. We didn't get the rain that was forecast. Just a light sprinkle in the afternoon. Today should be sunny. It'll be a great day to spend outside!

Happy Friday! I'm going to lunch with a couple of friends. There are four of us that try to get together every other Friday. I think that all four of us have managed to be together only a couple times over the last few months, but we keep on getting together.

The weather here is beautiful, but it's been dry for about 6 weeks. Today, there is a chance of thunderstorms this afternoon. We could use it!

Very cold this morning, but we are layering up instead of turning on the furnace. The cold won't last long.

Have a great day!

Good Morning!

It was a beautiful day yesterday. I spent the morning with my mom. Went for a nice walk in the afternoon. The weather was perfect! This morning it is raining and the temps are suppose to drop. Tonight we will have a taste of Winter. We are under a freeze warning which will kill off the remaining plants. I'm not ready for that!

Kay-it's hard to believe that it's been about a yr since Shari's passing. No matter how she felt, she always posted here. I guess with Spark, I've been doing it so long that it just becomes habit to track. There are always new members on my teams, but they rarely post anything on any of the threads.

I have today off. Students don't have classes today. I've got a lot of things planned for today. The main thing is to go and spend time with my mom. Its going to be a nice day. The temps should be in the 70's.

Have a great day!

Happy Sunday,
Becky, I think a lot of people are leaving SparkPeople because it's so much harder to use than Facebook and various blog sites for communicating and writing blogs. Fitbit and other activity trackers also are making a dent in the need for SparkPeople. I no longer blog here or track my exercise the way I used to for that reason. The only reason I'm still on Spark is because of this team and another cancer team that I belong to. If it wasn't for these two teams, I'd be gone too.

I think we are around the one year anniversary of the passing of MOM2CAT (Shari Larsen). I followed her CaringBridge page and her dear friend Penny posted there about the anniversary of her passing. She did a lot for this team and the other cancer team. I have so much respect for her and the way she handled her illness with such dignity.

Good morning'

Another cold start. There is frost again this morning. It's a it too cold for my liking. It is definitely soup weather.

It's tough sometimes to keep things going on a team. You always wonder if everyone is ok or have they just moved on. This has been happening to a lot of my teams. Things are not like they were when I first started on Spark.

I'm amazed a week has gone by since I posted. Our overnight guests from last weekend have a home in Florida that was in the path of the hurricane. They hadn't shuttered up the house before they left for the summer so they had to dash down to Florida to shutter the house just hours before the hurricane hit. They are fine, but I'm glad to be in Tennessee and not to have to deal with that.

I had upper and lower endoscopies on Tuesday. Everything looked good and I'm very happy about that after all the pain I went through over the summer. Now, I just want it to stay that way.

Gumdoc, I'm glad you are recovering. I always seem to underestimate how painful recovery from surgeries are. Maybe we forget when it's over....as a way of our mind protecting us. That's probably a good thing.

Becky, thank you for keeping this thread going even when no one else is around. I appreciate that.

It's feeling more like Winter this morning! We've got temps in the low 30's right now. Brrrr!!!!! It should warm up into the upper 50's later. Still too cool for me! Plenty of sunshine though!

I want to get outside today with my boys and get some family photos taken. The leaves are turning and it's so pretty outside. Afterwards we are hopefully headed to a winery and stop at the apple orchard for caramel apples.

emoticon I'm feeling pretty good today. I was fine yesterday until I came home and sat down. I wanted to rest my legs and feet cuz my son and I were going for a run. While sitting, my body started aching. I didn't feel up to running, but I did anyway. It turned out to be the best thing for me. I ran really well and didn't ache after I was done. Sure wish I could figure out what is going on. I guess I will just keep moving until bedtime!

emoticon My son and i went for a run last night and then I came home and took my dog for a short walk/run. I felt pretty good until I went to bed. I had dull aches in my legs which made it hard to sleep. Plus it was warm inside the house. Now I'm tired. It's going to be a long day!

Gumdoctor-you'll feel better before you know it. It gets frustrating I know. Try not to push it.

Yesterday was a warm day. My sons allergies were bothering him so I mowed my moms lawn after work. For some reason my legs haven't been acting up. They're sore, but not to a point where I can't sleep. They don't throb when I sit either. I'm not going to complain. I'm just taking things day by day.
