Forgive me....

for not posting, but if you read Thinkin' of Home, you know that I have done a bit of traveling and we bought a little place up north in Payson.

I was on a girlfriend trip for 3 weeks, but I realized about a week in that would be my last long trip by myself.  I just can't handle all the activity around the airports like I used to.  But I had a good time.

As far as my health, I am basically on a stable curve.  My CA125 is stable, still high, but not rising.  I am on a 3 week a month Abraxene regimen.  No hair, my nails are a mess, and I have achy legs.  But otherwise, I am able to function day by day.

I love reading blogs and see all your gorgeous big homes, but I also realize, I can't do that anymore either.  My 1200 sq ft home is enough for me.  I love my little cabin-ette up north.  She is only about 500 square feet and that feels just about right!

I still am able most days to walk Bentley a block or so to go potty.  He is my buddy.  The heat gets to both of us.  My weight is pretty much stable also.  I would love to lose about 20 pounds, but I enjoy my desserts too much!  I sure am not able to eat what I used to.....things have to really appeal to me, because most things are sorta bland tasting to me.

I am trying to get family pictures organized, which I must say is daunting.  I can only do it for so long and then I am done. 

My days are quiet.  Hubby still works, so I have a longggg day to occupy myself.  However, I seem to find contentment watching Junk Gypsys, Flea market flip and the like.  Energy is the item of my youth.  I have reckoned myself to using the "riders" at Walmart.  Otherwise, I am done for the rest of the day.

It will be 8 years this October I have been on this journey.  I didn't pick it....but I try to live it Joyfully and peacefully as the Lord gives me the strength.  I would love to have another 8 or 18.....but I will enjoy each day I do get!

Well, now you are caught up!!  Hope your summer is going well.  Me, I am ready for Fall....which comes about November around here!!
