I’m starting to feel better and stronger each day. It’s such a wonderful feeling. Matt said he feels like he has his wife back and Matthew looked at me and said “You’re feeling better, aren’t you, Mom?” Makes me SO happy!
Matt and I went running together! I did a 5K with only stopping to walk for about a minute three times. It felt good to do it even though it was hard! I also lifted weights this week!!! Very light, but still! It’s really helping my emotional state to be back working out on the path to how hard I used to work out. I’m hoping to be back in shape by the time school starts. Fingers crossed I can continue through radiation treatments.
I had a Groupon for a mani and pedi and was able to get that done this week now that I didn’t have to fret too much about my white blood cell counts. The salon wasn’t that nice (Groupon!) but the girl did a good job.
I finished three books this week. New book review post up next week, I promise.
We are redecorating our first floor and Matt has been a painting machine. (I’m not allowed to paint…) I’m so excited to get it finished and get our new furniture and have the first floor just how we want it.
Olivia started summer school this week and she did GREAT. She loved it and didn’t really have too many issues. I’m so proud of her!
My dear friend, Kim, came over and hung out with me last night. We had a glass of wine (something else I haven’t done in 6 months!) and ate dinner and talked. It was heavenly! She brought me the most beautiful flowers too.
We had delicious dinners this week from Kim and my friend Nancy. So good and they definitely spoiled us!
I got a sweet card from one of my former students that absolutely made my day.
Gabe and Matthew had soccer and basketball camps this week. They had fun!
Gabe started his job this week and did really well. We are so proud of him for working for a few weeks this summer!
Matt and I are going to a Disco Party tonight! I am so thankful that I feel good enough to go. My wonderful friend, Robin, is hosting a pre-party and we’re going with them. It’s going to be so fun!
What made you happy this week?
