Journey with Friends – Week 43 

30 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 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

TOTAL 2017 Miles:  503.22 (I could have walked from Atlanta, Georgia to Gainsville, Florida)

 ❤ small goals turn into big accomplishments ❤
