I am feeling pretty good this week. It started off pretty scary.
I got news last week during my physical that I had a lump in my left breast. I had never felt it before and the doc assured me she was only being super cautious. I was ok with that for a little bit. I had to battle my stupid insurance company in order to get a mammo. They weren't really thrilled about it because I am not 40 yet. So irritating! No one in the mammo office or my doc's office could believe my insurance company's attitude. I had to fight for it, even though I am 5 weeks from being 40!
So, I finally had the mammo. All is clear. Nothing to report, thank GOD!
I feel so so relieved. Of course, all those "what ifs...." were haunting me. I kept looking at my boys and thinking about missing out on raising them. It was pretty terrible and difficult.
Thank GOD that is over.
My headaches are still lingering, fewer and farther now. I think the tension in my life has been tremendously cut. My boys new school is amazing and I am so grateful that I fought hard to get them out of the old school and into the new one. We went to the book fair and "Reading Roundup" at school last night and it was sooooo awesome! What a great school. The boys have all kinds of new friends. I am so relieved. I am also the new media center assistant for the second grade! I am so excited! I tutored at the last school and loved it. Now I get to help out the adorable second graders in the library!! Woohoo! I love books and kids! This is so exciting!
I have been working out like a mad woman the last month. I have finally lost 8 pounds. This week tho, nothing. No gain either, so that's good. And a miracle really. We went out of town to visit family and they always feed us like crazy. It was a good visit and kinda sad. My hubs two grandmothers are both in homes now and one house has to be cleaned out. It was sad to see the house empty.
No more chasing chickens with the boys and the dogs. No more shooting guns. Well, I don't shoot the guns. I use a compound bow. (In terms of the Walking Dead, I am much more likely to be Daryl than Rick.) I will miss all that fun.
She gave me her vanity. It's so special to me now!
I am eating much better too. I am really having to watch what I eat. My glucose was ok, not pre-diabetes but it's close enough to annoy me.
Today I am having lunch with a good friend and I having the salad. I can't wait to catch up with her!
I finished Buffy and well, started Angel. I really did not like that show as much as Buffy. Buffy's hard to compete with. I am now watching Supernatural and I loved that show but didn't see the lastest seasons so I am catching up.
Tomorrow is my four mile hike with my girlfriends! I love to catching up on their lives and being outside!

I am feeling WAY better than I was!
I have no answers, though. No one knows what really happened to me. I had headaches that took me out of commission. It was terrible. I have been to every specialist you can name. I have had every test/procedure you can imagine. No answers.
I think my headaches are a combo of sinus, allergies, and tension. Just a guess. I still have headaches, I woke up with one today. But it didn't kill me! Sometimes I have rougher days than others. Sometimes no headaches at all!
I have been working out this week and tracking my food. Seriously, I have not felt like doing anything, so these little steps are pretty big for me.
I have been walking with my BFF and a couple more friends every Saturday morning. We walk 3.5 to 4 miles every time. And each time it's a new greenway or trail. It's been awesome. This Friday I am walking 4 miles and then again on Sat in a new place. I am so thrilled!
I have my physical in a few weeks and I can't wait. I know, that's odd. But I can't wait. I still think my 40's are going to be awesome!
I have been cleaning my house like crazy while watching Buffy the Vampire Slayer on my iPad. Next I think I'll watch Angel. I am on season 6 of Buffy and I have such a crush on Spike.
The little dog we adopted a few month ago is doing awesome! He needs no surgery. He needed love and exercise. So I talk him walking some. He is a feisty little dude and all his hair is growing in! He gained 3 pounds. He's 12 pounds of feisty!
The boys are loving their new school. I am so thrilled. At first my little guy didn't love it and he had such a hard time adjusting. But now he is loving it. He starts allergy shots today. And instead of being all crazy nervous he said he couldn't wait to get them started. He wants to be well!
Well, I am off to get his room clean. Woohoo! NOT!

It's been a horrible school year. I was relieved when it ended. So many things happened! Illnesses and accidents, one after another.
Then my headaches started. I still don't have the results of my scan. I still have headaches but they are not as debilitating as they were. I think it's some kind of allergy. As soon as I started allergy meds the headaches pretty much went away. But in the meantime, I felt awful and didn't exercise much other than to walk with a friend or my dog. It's not my usual workout and I have gained fat!
My youngest son had double pneumonia not too long ago. We all had a round of food poisoning on the last day of school. Talk about going out with a bang - or barf, really.
Our dog was attacked at the bus stop by a neighbors unleashed dog. We are still waiting or payment on that vet bill. (I fully expect to go to court over this one.) Poor scout is ok, but she is forever changed. The owners just watched as their dog ripped hair and tore at my dog. The only thing that stopped the fight was my oldest diving on the dog and holding it down. Amazingly brave and I still yelled at him for getting in the middle of that. My dog never fought back. She just tried to climb me. It was horrible. No apology or anything. The owners just stared the whole time and never collected their dog until I screamed at them to get their (&(#(*#(@ dog! Thank GOD it wasn't a child! There were six boys at the bus stop and that could have been one of them!
Hubs get furloughed in July til September. We will get a smaller paycheck thanks to the government not spending wisely. I guess that is our fault and we deserve to have our money taken away. ARGGGGGGG!!!!
I am holding on to the positives:
We adopted a dog, Bandit, about 2 mos ago. He is a Chihuahua terrier mix. He's old, been abused something horrible. The details are pretty awful. The good news is tho, he is living the life now. I will keep him happy and pain free til his last day. Scout loves him and mothers him. The cats think he is just a really ugly cat. He's much smaller than them.
The boys are going to a new school. I fought the good fight at the old school. I saw so many things that would shock anyone. I protested, yelled, wrote letters, emails, you name it. It's a sad situation. I got confirmation that they start the new school this fall. WOOHOO! Sometimes it's just meant to be. I pray the new school is better. If not, I will be homeschooling. YIKES!
Summer is here and I am going to sleep in, stay up late and play with the boys, soak it all in. Here's to living in my old cut off shorts and T-shirts!
No beach trip this year. We are going to DC. The boys are old enough to respect this trip and enjoy it.
I am tracking my food again. I have got to get back in the habit of that. I still feel like exercise is out of the question other than walks. I hope by the time the school year starts I will feel better and get back to my Turbo Jam. I really miss it.
The kids and I calling this our "Sci-fi summer". We watched This Island Earth yesterday! They loved it and so did I. Each summer break we have a theme. I am so excited about this one! We are watching science fiction and taking in museums and planetariums and anything science related! Woohoo!
