...and so here is an update

Cervix biopsy came back NEGATIVE!! Follow Up Pap in 4 months w/ GYN-Oncologist. She said that my cervix looks good....WOW, a nice sexy-looking cervix, what female wouldn't be all a blush with THAT comment?!?!?!

Buyers of my house (sold on contract-Im dedicated to the loan x3 more yrs) paid the Balloon Payment F-I-N-A-L-L-Y! I was able to catch up on a few months worth of bills.....now I need to check if June's payment has been made.....only 3 more years of this constant, monthly checkin up on.

I got a 2nd job today!!!! Wal-Mart is hiring me! I am so excited. Sheesh, at my age, I was certain they'd throw me at the front doors as a Greeter, but NO, due to my excellent work history, my current position at the university, my skills, my experience and my most CHARMING personality, I am being placed in the Electronic dept, where it takes a level head, to hand the Customers.....hmmmm, good thing I didn't mention my concealed weapon in my purse.

Down side to 2nd job-Play Time will be cut down, if not eliminated all together-at least until I get a little more steady financial foundation under me.

Up side to 2nd job-I will have the extra money to pay bills AND buy food. I dont mean the cheap-azz, high fat, calorie ridden stuff...But FRESH veggies, and FRESH fruit, yogurt, grains, and all the things I USED to take in for my healthy body....and for those that know my weakness for ice cream...lack of extra funds has at least eliminated that naughty treat from my diet.

I went on another motorcycle ride this past Sunday. Same route, all-day trip. Getting more secure, skills are building, and I'm actually enjoying the scenery as I ride, instead of muttering the mantra...ok, ok, ok, you will be ok.

Workout has been....well....yeah, NOTHING for 2 weeks. yeah, yeah I had a horrid stomach flu for 10 days, but still...the desire has just not interested me at all. Kind of had other things going on, and yeah, yeah I know, exercise helps with stress, gets your mind off of "stuff".....but for me......I just needed to rest, play, and find other forms of release....and AHHHHH, it has helped give me a renewal of strength and peace.

Challenging moments, but really nothing horrible, and for that I am so thankful. I have the BESTest friends here on Spark.

You guys check on me, even though, I've stepped back, gone into my cocoon. Thank you for your love and support....even if I'm not interacting much, I am so thinking of each of you every day, and your Check Ins, Comments, and Emails warm my heart and I feel so cared for....Thank you my friends!

I am doing so much better, and can feel my old chipper self bouncing back!!!
Mucho Amor, mi amigos!

    Yay!!! Congrats on the job! Let me know how you like working for Walmart, I'm half tempted to see if they'll hire ME. :o)

    Rest and motivation is always important when it comes to exercising and if you don't have those, they there's really no point.. In my opinion at least..

    I'm glad that you were able to get some money to catch up on bills, that's always a relief!

    First off, that's a big relief to hear about the good pap smear results. That surely took a weight off your shoulders. Good luck with your new job. Walmart is lucky to have you, and yes, that extra cash will definitely help. Time to celebrate with a pool party!

    I can't tell you how happy I am to hear the negative results!!! I've been keeping you in my thoughts and was honestly worried and can't tell you how happy I am that all is well!

    Happy to hear you're back to your chipper self that we all love so much!!!

    Debie, so glad to hear the results were negative. I have been through that too - had to have paps every 6 months for two years. I am all good as well and back to regular annual visits. but it is scary when it first happens. how is your daughter doing?

    So cool about the motorcycle, I had gotten my endorsement quite a few years ago and used to ride on a regular basis but don't anymore. But my sweetie has a Harley, so I like to ride with him! Congrats on the second job and definitely don't beat yourself up about the exercise. Sometimes we just need a break. You know what you need to do and you WILL get back to it. Have a wonderful weekend!!!
