I was able to spend the whole day with my little nephew for a program at school & then I spent the rest of the day with my brother. He was off work the whole day . OHHHH...... SO NICE !!!!! We live about an hour away from each other, although we do see each other several times throughout the year , today , was mostly him & I just hanging out . The program was only about an hour at school & my sister in law met us on her lunch hour & us three grown ups had lunch together . It was grand ! It's been several years since my brother has had the time to just hang out like that ... just chillin' & chatting ! The program at school was darling ! Kindergarten ! Oh what fun stuff ! They sang songs about colors & a silly dancing song ! So precious ! I had a wonderful time with my family today ! My heart is happy !
Even though life is wonderful & I have had all kinds happy, memorable , joyful things happen lately -Eating & exercising has been a huge challenge. I have been on the run , every day these past 2 weeks. I need to really take the time to balance this a little better . My hubby is constantly bringing food home, which makes it very difficult ! When we get pizza , we can't buy just 1, we have to get 2 large ones because that's what the sale is or what the coupon is for. We literally eat pizza for 4 days , at least ! Every day, I wake up saying today,I'm going to stay on track... then , like tonight.... hubby doesn't like to not use the coupons, so even though we are still eating pizza from 2 days ago, he has 2 more coupons for pizza that have to be used up by the 24th ! OH GEEZ !!!!! One of them is a pizza buffet !!!! Oh my land !!!!! It seems to never end !Oh did I mention.... we still have 15 bags of chocolate candy in the cupboard from the sales & coupons from Halloween ! Yikes !!! Now we are heading into the holidays , more food ! More baking ! More temptations ! Busier schedules.... Oh food is such a constant challenge indeed ! I will keep working on better choices & portion control & more exercise !!!!!
I will not give up ! Life is too important to cave into all of these challenges.

I had my follow up appointment at the doctors today to , get my results from my blood work & biopsies.. I am thrilled to tell you that there are absolutely no cancer cells, blood work is all normal. My thyroid is working just fine. No surgery, no medicine !!! AMEN !!!! AMEN !!!!AMEN !!!!! I am on cloud nine ! Doing the happy dance all day long ! I am so relieved ! I am so thankful for all the thoughts, support & prayers ! I am so thankful for such wonderful news !
I will have to have a follow up ultrasound in 6 months. It will be something we will have to keep an eye , just to make sure there are no problems. but I'm totally good with that !!
I feel like a huge weight has been lifted ! Although I am so overjoyed with the results ,I also know this is a huge wake up call for me. I need to learn & grow from this experience. I need to take care of myself, love my family & friends to the fullest , love life, every day, every moment ! Life is short & we only get one chance at it ! I am going to enjoy every minute !
What a wonderful day it was.

It's been a busy , but great week. It's that time of year when there is always something going on. Fun stuff, get togethers, family time , crafts to make for the holidays, shopping, baking , cooking, parties as the list goes on. I absolutely love this time of the year...all of it !!! The cold weather, & I know... as nuts as it sounds.... even the pretty snowflakes when we get them ! Cold weather brings out coziness, warm soups for dinner, homemade hot chocolate , movie marathons ,cozy sweatshirts , making crafts, making blankets for the Christmas program at church ...the list could go on. I am so grateful for all these wonderful, special events this time of year . This year seems to be more joyful for me. I suppose I'm more grateful, more aware of all the little , wonderful, beautiful things that happen in our lives that we maybe take for granted sometimes. The sun shining, kind hearted friends, a conversation with someone special, a day out with special people , food on our table, the roof over our heads, the love for & from our loved family & friends, good jobs, stability , fond, happy memories.... oh my ! My mind is racing of all the special, meaningful , beautiful family, friends, moments in my life. I am truly blessed & sometimes I forget that ! That's a shame ! I need to remember how touched my life really is . I am one blessed, joyful , thankful gal !
Friday was my hubby's birthday. So that was fun to celebrate that . Saturday .I went with my friends to our annual Christmas craft show, the show was a bit disappointing but the time together was awesome ! I worked on my blankets & cards the rest of the day . My friend came over for awhile in the evening . She truly has been my little angel lately , helping me get through all this trying medical stuff, bless her ! Today my father in law is coming over to got to the movies & out for dinner which will be a pleasant time as well. Life is sweet !!! Enjoy it !!!!

Today, I had my biopsies done. Sigh ! Although it really worked on my nerves, it really went well & the sound of it all was much worse than the actual procedure ! Yay ! I'm thankful for that . Why is it that our mind can play tricks on us & it sure can drum up a lot of ugly , unpleasant visions !!! Try as I might , I still can put my imagination into overload ! It's draining ! I'm getting better , but it sure is an ongoing challenge, day in & day out ! I will keep working at it ! I won't know results til next wee but I won't borrow trouble, I will be calm & positive ! There is no reason to think bad thoughts !!!! I am in good hands & I will be taken well care of ! Thank you for listening & your thoughts & prayers ! It's so nice to know when you have a great support system, for all the events in our lives !
On a great note : Driving to the hospital this morning, I saw the most beautiful sunrise ! I stopped to capture it with the camera ! It was a sign that the day was going to be a good one, despite the unpleasant start to the day at the hospital !
Have a great evening everyone !
