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!!
