Journey with Friends – Week 41 

16 Oct

Welcome my friends to our weekly issue of Journey with Friends.  This is a time that we come together for support, for encouragement, for fellowship – all with one single goal in mind – to live better.  Welcome to our journey to share our goals and our accomplishments and our disappointments and frustrations.

Together we can do this!

Sunday, October 8, 2017 –  It looks like we are all getting better here at the Hotel Thompson – YAY!  The hub unit had the cold and then he so nicely gave it back to me again.  A family that shares together, right?  Hopefully this cold is behind us now… I hope.  It’s raining outside today and the next couple of days so we plan on getting rest.  Miles Moved: 1.10

Monday, October 9, 2017 –  The rain has come in and settled here for a couple of days. I kind of like it.  We haven’t had rain here in some time so it’s nice to have had it these past couple of days.  It’s that time of the month to do my statistical monthly end reports.  I foresee me getting these out of the way this week and just trying to maintain.  I may not be moving much but at least my eating is still good.  Miles Moved: 1.14

Tuesday, October 10, 2017 –  aarrghh – I can’t believe I didn’t put on my Apple i-Watch this morning.  I felt so naked all day and had to depend on my i-Phone to calculate my movements throughout the day.  I have been one of *those* people – addicted to their i-Watch LOL.  Miles Moved: 1.00

Wednesday, October 11, 2017 –  The paperwork continues at work.  Should be finished with everything tomorrow.  The hub unit is doing so much better – yay!  He just has a mild cough now and that is getting better each day – thank goodness.  Miles Moved: 1.10

Thursday, October 12, 2017 –  YES!  Finished the month end paperwork.  Now I can breathe.  It’s 4 weeks from yesterday until my surgery.  It’s getting closer.  I’m getting my medical compression garments in now, trying to clean the house, trying to get some meals frozen that will be easy to put in the oven to warm up and tying up loose ends for the time I will be out of work.    Miles Moved: 1.32

Friday, October 13, 2017 –  Trying to  play catch up at work with things that took a second seat while finishing month end reports.  I’m so ready for the weekend!  Miles Moved: 0.67

Saturday, October 14, 2017 –  Ran a few errands today to get out with Jim.  I’m still trying to find a bed rest for my bed to use after surgery.  Any ideas where I can get one?  They use to be everywhere and now they are hard to find.  It’s the bed rest cushion/pillow that you lean against in bed to sit up and read, etc.  I can’t lay flat for a while so I thought this pillow might help a bit.    Miles Moved: 0.55

This week walked: 6.88

TOTAL 2017 Miles:  487.20

 ❤ small goals turn into big accomplishments ❤

    Well thank you hub unit for re-sharing your cold/man flu with the wife…isn’t Love grand??? HAHAHAHA!!!
    My suggestion for finding a bed rest is to call Mobility stores there that have everything from bedpans to wheelchairs…maybe the rests are now sold only in medical equipment stores?
    And you are still on target & moving & getting things done!! You are an inspiration!!!!

      aaww thanks my friend. That is one place I need to check out – thank you. I’m still trying to move but my RA is acting up a bit. I’m off all of my RA meds until after surgery. That makes it a bit harder but I’m still trying. Surgery will be here before we know it and my nerves are catching up. ❤

    Thought: Buy an adjustable bed. Convince hubby that it is more for him (to eliminate snoring, or whatever excuse works) lol!

    Your Pals,

      LOL – we do have a Select Comfort bed now. Hopefully we are upgrading that to an adjustable one but it won’t be until next year. I would love to do it now though giggles.

        Nerves are good- nothing like s little extra adrenaline to get us moving. Walk lots – if you can – movement is a natural foil for nerves – good luck!

        Thanks my friend. I have been trying to do lots of walking in preparation for this surgery. I just wish it was over now – LOL
