Journey with Friends – Week 49

11 Dec

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, December 3, 2017 –  Finally a day of rest.  I don’t think much moving was done by me, Jim or the anipals here at the Hotel Thompson.  We slept and rested which is exactly what I needed!  Miles Moved: -0-

Monday, December 4, 2017 –  Back into the grind of things.  It’s already the beginning of December!  There is so much to do but this year I feel we will be taking things easy and light.  I don’t have the stamina to be crawling around putting up decorations and it’s just me and Jim.  This year having this surgery was our gift to each other.  Having the lumps gone and being here for each other.  What else could we ask for, right?  Miles Moved: 0.95

Tuesday, December 5, 2017 –  Working on a surprise for Jim for next week.  Do you know how hard it is to work on surprises for that man?  Do you have one in your life that can almost guess every.single.time what you might be doing?  The boy has a sixth sense for some things.  But what he *thinks* and what happens could be two different things.  My sister is in cahoots with me.  You know this can’t end well – snickers.   Miles Moved: 1.21

Wednesday, December 6, 2017 –  So much to get done this weekend and it’s only Wednesday!  My list is getting longer and the days are getting shorter.  What’s a girl to do?  Maybe I can start training Bacon and Houdini to help out with errands?  That should be interesting for sure.  Miles Moved: 0.93

Thursday, December 7, 2017 –  Today was a hiccup.  I’ve had one spot under my left breast that has been bothering me.  I just don’t like the looks of it.  I called the doctors office last week and they told me it was a ‘spitting stitch’.  It still bothers me today so I called the doctors office and sent him a picture via text.   Of course he wanted me to come in to look more closely at it and to check a few things.  Of course I got worried when he pulled out scissors and tweezers.  Can you say ouch?  Remember to check out my other blog here for details of this situation.   Miles Moved: 1.13

Friday, December 8, 2017 – Friday I love you so much!  Thank goodness we made it to you.  Now to get finished at work and start some errands!   Miles Moved: 0.93

Saturday, December 9, 2017 –  Work up feeling a little under the weather.  I guess the doctor ‘operating’ on me Thursday finally caught up to me and I was aching a bit today.  And on top of everything else, we got snow this morning.  Okay it was SNOW to us…we freak out with one snowflake – LOL.  But today needs to go on.  Houdini has a spa appointment and then he is off to see Santa.  Be afraid Santa.  There is no telling what he will ask for this year for Christmas.  Miles Moved: 0.65


Thoughts for the week:  Baby steps.  Life is not a race.  We all get to where we want in the end.  That’s my motto for my recovery.  This Wednesday 12/13/2017 will be 5 weeks.  Some days I feel like it’s been FIVE WEEKS.  Some days I feel like it’s a rush of time.  Recovery is slow but I’m so happy with my results so far.  And believe it or not, I’m itching to get back into my workout routine in January.  January is a new year all around for me.  Have a great week my friends ❤

This week walked: 5.80

TOTAL 2017 Miles:  523.56

    It was snow-mageddon across the south. At least it came at week’s end. 🙂

      This is true – on a Saturday nonetheless. Darn it. But never fear it looked pretty but the streets were fine. ❤

    I’m sorry about the ‘spitting stitches’ June! That must have scared you a bit. You did the right thing seeing Doctor. And do now worry about now walking 87 miles a day; you need to REST so your lovely bosom can heal properly OK?? NO heroics!
    I had a good dental surgery! Pleasantly surprised! AND I have a $56. credit to apply for yearly check up next year….
    I did EXACTLY what the Dentist told me: NOTHING strenuous for 31/2 days. PERIOD. We have a few feet of snow. I finally shovelled a path today (Monday the 11th). No vacuuming or major cleaning happening for at least 2 weeks. I want my gum/mouth to heal properly. (I’d rather be online than cleaning anyway!)
    Sending you ❤ & gentle {{{hugs}}} Sherri-Ellen ❤

      aaww ❤ I know that's right. I am so not pushing it and haven't been since surgery. Healing is going to take some time for this surgery. I'm so glad you are feeling better! We have all been thinking about you here at the Hotel Thompson. Even Jim said one night us two needed to be in a recovery room together being pampered. Now you take care of you too okay! ❤

    Dear Aunt June, we can’t believe It’s been five weeks either. You are smart to ease up on the pace and continue to heal.
    Much Love,
    Fiona & Mama

      aaww thanks sweet friends ❤ I'm trying to give myself to the end of the year to heal. January I will slowly start easing back into my workouts. Slowly.
