OCTOBER 2014

Sometimes I feel like i am on a Roller Coaster - life seems to be settling down and then there is another sharp drop.

Last year i lost my oldest son to Cancer - and now i have learned that my sister has cancer - and may be in the later stages. She has known since January, but has just let me know. She lives in Medford - so it is not easy for me to visit - but will see how it goes.

OCTOBER 2014

Sometimes I feel like i am on a Roller Coaster - life seems to be settling down and then there is another sharp drop.

Last year i lost my oldest son to Cancer - and now i have learned that my sister has cancer - and may be in the later stages. She has known since January, but has just let me know. She lives in Medford - so it is not easy for me to visit - but will see how it goes.

I have a time tracking my diet and my activities - but have learned that I do so much better when i take the time to. The two things i have the most struggle with are drinking enough water and getting to the club where i have a membership. And that i pay for each month!! I am continually resolving to do better and do for a while and then just get distracted by other things.

Not going to set any goals for the rest of this month - am just going to post what i do each day and see where i end up.

Love your daffodils, how are things going for your sisterÉ Ron and I have begun on his prostate cancer journey, Tuesday we learn the results of bone and abdominal scans and what to expect in the way of treatment. Take care, I am rooting for all of us! Anne M emoticon aria

Will do. You have a special place in my heart. Sometimes people just touch you in a special way like that. Talk to you in a few weeks. emoticon

I'm delighted to here about all the good progress you have made. CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!!! Since you are so active in your personal life would you like to resign from co-leadership or just suspend for awhile. It's up to you. I don't want you to feel pressured in any way. If your going to be active on the team at a later date then I will just suspend you. I'm so glad you are going to the gym again and doing the day challenge is fantastic. I have tried different day challenges and I have yet to complete one. I've come close and I'm going to continue to try. How are your eating and water doing? Those are important too. It sounds like life is great right now. A lot better than it was when we first met. You will continue to be on my list of people to keep in contact with. Have a great day. emoticon emoticon emoticon

Hi Barb,

l'm glad you're well, l've not been on Spark so much either, my sister and her husband have been visiting so we've been out and about a bit, they like to walk too. lt's been so lovely to catch up face to face instead of on the 'phone or email, we've really enjoyed it.
They've gone back home today so l had a bit of washing and cleaning to get on with then l sat in the sunshine and read for a while.
l didn't even get my walk in today, very remiss of me!

Thanks for the goodie, the new camera is lovely, l shall enjoy using it.
Have a wonderful day with Steph emoticon
