long week coming to a close
So the weekend is coming; we plan on straightening up the patio since we really haven't had a chance since Loreen left because of rain and Michael getting sick, and doing a little around the house. Cleaners come on Monday which is perfect since all our guest are coming Tuesday afternoon. I'm so excited to see my Aunt and Uncle and Grandma and of course my parents and Bro but I never thought any other family would ever visit us since they didn't in CT. and now they are. We are going to have so much fun. I'm limited to stuff as everyone knows but the good thing is I finally have a scooter so I can do more things that include walking because Yvonne was nice enough to sell me her mothers who has sadly passed away. I hate the fact that I have to use a scooter now because it does show that I am getting weaker but I refuse to be locked in this house and be limited to few things. I want to be able to go to the parks again with Dominic and watch him on the rides and this will really help me out. Plus when we go to Vegas it's going to come in great, great help with me walking around from hotel to hotel. Funny but I never thought I'd be excited about being sick but I am excited about my scooter and being able to enjoy the great outdoors again. Thank you Yvonne (and your momma too)
I got my Dexa scan done but no results yet and my blood work looked pretty normal. WBC's and RBC's were a little high that is to be expected when you have an autoimmune disease, just means I'm fighting my body which it thinks is foreign. I go Monday to Dermatology to check out these brown spots on my face but I've been real good about using my Avon bleacher and I see a difference so I probably don't need to see them but better go just in case.
Oh I got on the scale the other day and I am 134 pounds so I've lost 21 pounds which is great because I know I will gain some back with the fam coming in. It's great being able to fit into a size 8 and small top again but I've lost a lot of muscle tone. I made all the girls at work feel my mushy butt the other day because they didn't believe me. I have a butt but it's like jello. I really need to start exercising and tone this up. I have a lot of loose skin which I find very gross. So I couldn't work out after last Sat. because we had Matt the contractor here doing Dominic's bathroom but today I forced myself to do Pilate's. I wish I could do more cardio but it's just not an option these days. Hopefully doing weights and Pilate's and my yoga I will tone this body up and get stronger. OK I've rumbled on and on and should sign off before I not only bore you but bore myself as well when I reread it.
Until I can think of something else to write,
Three things I am Happy for:
- Michael because he is starting to feel better now and get his energy back. Bless his heart.
- Dominic first time ever he brought home his progress report and he wasn't missing ANY assignments. We are so proud of him.
- Laughter, it really is great medicine.
