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 22, 2017 – It’s getting kind of hard to move now but I’m still treading along. It’s amazing to look back and see how much I was walking and feeling great vs now without my RA meds. They really were working! Soon after surgery I can take them again which I’m really looking forward to at this moment! Miles Moved: 0.98
Monday, October 23, 2017 – Mission accomplished. Today I wanted to finish my Australia pictures and get them made into photo books. I did it! Of course, it took two books – LOL. There were so many wonderful memories to make. Don’t worry – I will be sharing them with everyone in the next couple of months. Miles Moved: 0.74
Tuesday, October 24, 2017 – Trying to get a headstart on my end of the month/beginning of the month accounting at work. I want to make sure everything rolls and is good to go starting 4th quarter before my surgery. I will be out of work for a total of 12 days, including the weekends. I then go back to work for 3 days (the week of Thanksgiving) and then I’m out again for another 4 days. I think this is completely doable with my surgery and my doctor agrees since basically I have a sit down job. Keep your fingers crossed for me ❤ Miles Moved: 1.02
Wednesday, October 25, 2017 – Do you ever have days you wake up and just want to snuggle back down for another couple of months – LOL? That was all of us this morning in the king size bed. It’s starting to get a little cold in the air now – YAY! Just enough cold in the house that we were all heated by each other and was all comfy. I could have slept for another couple of hours for sure. But I got up and went out to work. Yay me. I get extra points for that, right? Miles Moved: 0.74
Thursday, October 26, 2017 – Paperwork – it’s going to kill me. I’ve accepted that. Started going through my personal spreadsheet that I keep up with for taxes. Yep, I’m anal like that – it’s the nerd in me. Better to start it now than to wait until the last moment. Miles Moved: 1.44
Friday, October 27, 2017 – Looking forward to another long weekend – only one more weekend after this one before surgery. We are going to run a few errands but other than that, rest is on the menu. Miles Moved: 1.40
Saturday, October 28, 2017 – Do you ever think about how much heat your anipals put out? And how hot their little tummies are? It just brings a smile to my face thinking of them. Especially when they are all snuggled up to you sleeping, tummy exposed without a worry in the world. Safe and content. Exactly how they should be. Miles Moved: 1.59
Thoughts for the week: As I said last week, no more videos this week about the upcoming surgery – LOL. I’m trying my best not to even think about it and to focus on family and friends right now. The more I do that, the better off I am. If I think about it too much, I get a little freaked out and anxiety peeks into my life. I’m trying. Next week 11/2/2017, is my pre-op. Keep my fingers crossed dear friends. I appreciate all of your love, advice and good thoughts sent my way. ❤
This week walked: 7.91
