For once I am taking care of me. I went for my annual physical today which I am ashamed to admit I haven't been to since 07. The Dr. was amazed to find that my BP is a LOT lower than it was in the past thanks to my meds. That I am in fact wearing glasses and that I weigh exactly (right down to the ".4") what I did the last time I was there 2 YEARS AGO!... She did refer me to a surgeon to have a cancer screen and have him remove a mole on my face (ugh of all places). That's cool, whatever. I also have to get my boobs squashed and mangled in a zerox machine, what fun! But over all my health so far looks awesome. Yeah and my blood tests will take a couple of weeks.
Then my friends we will celebrate!

Well, T-Mom is home and extremely uncomfortable. But hey she's home and the plumbing is working. I haven't been over to the house to bother her yet, but I have talked to her on the phone. I wanted to give her time to settle in before exhausting her with my presence.

So back to me (remember it's all about me). All 4 of us went to the gym on Saturday to do some family workout. It was good except I forgot to take my BP meds that morning and I ended up not feeling too good. Then just as we were getting ready to leave the tornado sirens blared. So we had to evacuate. That was strange. We left and it was raining a little. We live about 6-7 miles from the gym and about 1/2 way home the rain was torrential! I could not wait to get home. I was a little sore, but nothing terrible. Well, yesterday Littleman and I went to downtown Savannah to take pictures for a project he needs to do for school. We walked for a very long time, then met up with some friends of mine for dinner. Can I just tell you that my legs are screaming at me right now!!! My thighs are killing me. All because I wanted some family time. *heehee* maybe the gym wasn't such a smart idea. I am ultimately sedentary you know...

Went to see my bud last night and she looks a heck of a lot better than I thought she would look. She was sitting up, that was good. She even took a little walk down the hall and back. We were there maybe 10 minutes. That's all she could really handle so we left. I hope to see her again maybe tomorrow. I brought a wet well card over to where she does karate and had them all sign it. I picked it up on my way over last night and gave it to her. That made her smile. I also took a picture of Babygirl holding a note that told her to get well and that she loved her. They got the pathology report yesterday and it was ALL GOOD NEWS!
Well, I had better actually get to work now. Thanks everyone.

T-Mom is hanging in there. She got out of surgery around 6:00 last night. It took her a long time to shake the anesthesia, but she is doing O.K. As her husband says,"she is getting her color back." I hope to see her tonight depending on how she's feeling of course. Thanks for the good karma.

My bud is having her surgery to remove a part of her colon, intestine and lymph nodes. The surgery starts at 12:30. Please send a good amount of karma this way please.
She is in great spirits which is a good thing. They have determined that it has not spread and she is in stage 1. Thank God! This is very treatable and she may not need chemo. Keep your fingers crossed.
Hope you all have an awesome Monday.

What motivation, I have none. Is it just me or does anyone out there feel like a steaming pile-o-poo? I mean it takes all the energy I have just to get up in the morning. It is unreal. What's worse is going to bed at 7:30 and sleeping until morning and waking up tired. That is so very wrong. I am hoping that this will pass soon because I am so tired of being tired. We had company this last weekend and more company on St. Patty's Day but it wasn't too much or too many. It was really nice actually. I just feel drained. Kinda strange since I am more of a high energy kinda person.

I haven't had much happening in my life lately which is good I suppose. T-Mom is hanging in there. She is scared and I don't blame her. We went to dinner with them on Friday night and she is having a hard time wrapping her head around it all. She spent the whole weekend cleaning like a mad woman. I understand the need to stay busy. She goes in for blood work tomorrow and the surgery is scheduled for Monday. This is all happening so fast. Her mom is a chemo nurse and is coming to spend time with her while she is recovering. Her dad lives in Connecticut and will be down here as well. She has an awesome support system and a plethora of friends. I guess that just shows what a wonderful person she is. I told her that if she loses her hair with the chemo, I will shave my head so she won't be the only funny looking woman in town.
I mean it too.

The kids are great the the hubby is awesome BTW...

We went on vacation with them a couple of Thanksgivings ago.
We were so thankful (and still are) that we made friends with them. We love them both as well as their children.
Well, we received some bad news today. My friend T-Mom was diagnosed with colon cancer. She is the same age as me. We are all really scared. It is malignant and they told her that today. She goes in for more tests, MRI's and CAT scans this week and will have surgery next week. Wow, that is hard to imagine. Please send good karma, prayers and love. She really needs it right now. Hell, I need it right now.T-Mom, love ya lots!

Lack of Enthusiasm & Random BS...

Usually I am full of energy and life, but for some reason, I am exhausted. All this week I have come to work and done very little. Oh, I have a lot to do and more is piling up by the day. I think I am having burnout.
My daughter forgot her books this morning and I was well on my way in to work. I turned around, headed back home cuss-texted her, got her stuff and headed to her school. I called the boss to let him know I was going to be late. I was 40 minutes late, everyone was here and it was still ME who unlocked the front door. What if I hadn't come to work at all? Oh and yesterday I started a fire in the kitchen here at work. *sigh* I thought the toaster oven was off... oops... We were able to put it out but it stunk up the place. Sorry.
I don't know if you all know this but I play The Sims 2. I have been playing it since 2004. Well, my game crashed and I have lost 5 years worth of work *sigh* that might be a part of my moods lately. We even restored the computer to an earlier date, but all was lost.
My son got a phone call the other day from the football coach at the high school. He has been recruited for the JV team for his freshman year. How cool is that? He has to go to weight training for the next few months. He is really liking it. I am loving it for him.
I hope y'all are having a much better week.
