Keeping On Top

Sometimes it seems like life keeps throwing you curve after curve. Sometimes it can be the "little"  things that can get you down. Money or the lack of it causes so much stress. You have to keep pulling yourself back on top. You can't give in. The battle is in your mind. You can't let the negative thoughts over take you.  You have to remember you are worth the fight,

A Little Worried

I am trying not to think about it but I am a little worried. The doctor office got me in early about the thyroid masses. The doctor highly recommended surgery because of the size and location of the masses. He stated that they can not biopsy the masses because of the location and that he could not rule out cancer. I am being referred to a surgeon and waiting on some lab work. I will keep you updated but please remember me in your prayers. Now it is a waiting game so we will see what is going to happen. The encouraging news is that thyroid cancer is very rare so I am really trying not to worry.

Life is indeed a precious gift
Each day should be cherished
Hold close those you love
Never take for granite one moment
Always speak words of encouragement
These could be the last words ever heard
Smile and bring joy to others
Kind words are never forgotten
Remember we need each other
Give hugs frequently 
Show love in all you do 
Live life each day to it fullest
Life is fragile

Been Zapped

I feel like I have been zapped of all my energy. I don't feel like doing anything. I'm kind of sick at my stomach and so exhausted. Maybe I have a touch of something, or maybe it's the heat, but I just don't feel good. I am still waiting to get into a specialist about my thyroid. I have several masses and my thyroid levels are off. I have heard that thyroid problems can make you feel really bad and that it is bad for your depression. I knew I should not have eaten anything for breakfast. My stomach is really torn up! I'll try to get around to everyone's blog when I'm feeling better. Take care everyone. Until latter.

Time Away

I spent some time with a friend that lives about 2.5 hours way. We had a good time. We made some homemade strawberry ice cream that was to die for. Homemade ice cream is always the best! We did nothing special just hung out watched movies and talked. It was a nice break.

Looks like it is going to be a busy week this week. Lots of appointments including Alice's spine injection. I am really hoping this gives her some relief from her pain. I have got a ton of laundry waiting on me. I guess my good house keeping fairy is not going to show up to do it so i might as well jump to it Take care!

Best friends are a true blessing from God.
They hold you up when you are down
They loving give you that push when you need it
They stand by you through thick and thin
You can depend on them when times are rough
They celebrate the good times with you
Yes best friends are always there

How To Walk Your Human

We got the bright idea that we could put our youngest cat on a lease to take him to Pet's Mart. It didn't go to well. This video reminded me of the experience.

Summer Time

I love summer food! Corn on the cob, watermelon, home made ice cream, grilled hamburgers, hot dogs and steaks. Yum! Isn't it funny how anything  grilled taste better?  W are currently under a burn  band  so no grilling. Let's not forget the 4th of July.   I remember when summer met swimming till dark. Now I might stick my feet in the water. (No bathing suit for me) Summer was more than just heat advisories. Now I have trouble tolerating the heat. What good memories!

I can't believe I'm hooked on this stupid fish game! I'm not even sure what the name of the game is, but you feed the fish, collect gold coins, and kill sea monsters. Good grief!

It's been a pretty quite day around here. It is still so hot. Another day over 100 degrees. There is suppose to be a break by Tuesday. The temperature is going to drop to the upper 80's. We might even receive some rain. Right now we are under a burn band due to how dry it is here.

I watched 20/20 and it was about heaven. It was very interesting. I thought the near death experiences were very interesting, especially the one the young boy told. It had so much detail about who he saw. Angels were described. I do believe in heaven and angels.

Thankful thought for the day. Someday I will see Chris again in Heaven

Ain't What I Used To Be

I am beginning to see more and more I ain't what I used to be! I remember the day I worked 50 hours  a week, attended all my kids ball games, took Karate, cooked  and cleaned, and still had energy! It's not that way any more. My health has caught up with me! Alice and I just went and got several bags of groceries and it was all I could do to help get them in the house and put them away.  I hate what lupus has done to my body!  Well things could be a lot worse. I can still take care of business. I'm just a a lot slower! lol

Last night we sat on the porch and watched the neighborhood fireworks. There  was a cool breeze which was nice since the high of the day was over 100 degrees. A very pleasant  and enjoyable time with Alice.

I have got so much I need to do today. Just one step at a time. That Is all anyone can do!

My thankful thought of the day, my home, my family, and my friends!

A Day Early

I know I'm a day early, but happy 4th of July everyone. Does anyone have any special plans for tomorrow? We are not doing anything special. I might watch some fireworks on TV where  I will be cool in my home.

I am just getting over a three day migraine headache. I was so sick! All I could do was stay in bed in the dark. I went to ER because I was having right sided weakness and slurred speech.  I just wanted to make sure it was not a stroke. I'm fine now and hope not to have another headache like that in a long time.

We have had a very short slight break in the heat. It is only running in the upper 90's. It is suppose to be back to 100 degrees by tomorrow. A nice hot 4th of July.
