Good morning!

How was the weekend?

Do you have any interesting/exiting/not-so-fun plans for the upcoming week?

My baby brother turns 42 today! How can I have a LITTLE brother who is 42?!

My 7 year old competed in her 3rd swim meet of the summer held at the Olympic stadium in Los Angeles. It was so neat! I'm exciting that she is enjoying swimming - I never found a physical activity I enjoyed till my late 30s so hoping this sticks with her.

Supposed to be another heat wave in Los Angeles this week. I've made a fitness goal to get up and walk around the block at least 3 times during the work day but looks like I'll have to get those walks in before noon!

Who is next?

Good day all -

I have been helping my friend Marilyn move - I can't do much but right now she needs all the help she can - the movers come tomorrow. I put on my neck brace and work, she has Parkinson so with the two of us together it is like one hard worker doing the work. It is funny to watch us two pushing food carts around with the stuff.

Last Friday I had the first of a series of IV iron infusions I will go every 5 wks for blood work then the next week the infusion. Who knows for how long - since I do not absorb my iron it could be a long time of infusions.

Weather this week in the 80's.

Glad your daughter like swimming some children are afraid of the water.
I shall wait upon the Lord and renew my strength.

My birthday was Friday, I turned 29. I spent all of Friday with my hubby, then all of Saturday with my family. Sunday I recuperated.

This week: endo appointment. Just regular 3 month check to make sure things are going swimmingly. Jogging with hubby 4 days, bike riding 1 day and then swim aerobics on saturday with my momma.

Haylen - LOL, my son will be 43 in December! How can I have a son that will be 43???

Had a PET/CT scan today, then grabbed a quick lunch and then went food shopping, including a stop at a farmstand. Got home and chilled for a while, then went out with hubby for a 6.4 mile bike ride.

Tomorrow I am meeting my daughter and grandkids at the beach, will be a beautiful day. Saturday my hubby and I are meeting up with another breast cancer survivor and her hubby up at a lake in NH, then we are going out for dinner with them.

The humidity has cleared out and the weather is pleasantly in the 80's.

All in all, another busy week of life!
