Here's what's new with me this week:
...First I would tell you that I feel blah today. Just blah. If I still had a uterus I think it would be that time of the month. I kept my ovaries so I still have the hormones to deal with. Sorry, TMI!!
...The girls are home from school today for a Teacher In-Service day. They took full advantage of staying up late last night and sleeping in this morning. I also slept in which might have something to do with me feeling blah. Now I'm hitting the Dr. Pepper to try to get some motivation.
...Speaking of my surgery, it has officially been 6 weeks! Yay! I'm feeling great and have started upping my walking distance. I started with 1 mile for a few days, then 1.5 miles and now I'm at 2 miles. If I could just get my eating under control. Stupid sweet tooth!
...Last Saturday my cousin, Steph, played in a 3-on-3 basketball competition. It was organized by a local girl for her senior project. All the proceeds went to Make-A-Wish Foundation. It was a lot of fun to watch Steph play. It had been a while since she had played any sort of competitive sport and she said it was a wake-up call. I told her I get those wake-up calls too, but I just hit the snooze!
...I can't believe I'm typing this but I read my first Christmas book of the year already! It is called "A Merry Little Christmas" by Anita Higman. My review is due October 30 or I probably wouldn't have read it so soon. It happened to be the book I was reading for Dream Cast Thursday. Here's who I picked to star in the movie:
