It's freezing & the roads are horrible. The mall was closed yesterday & most companies but I had to go to work. :( Today the roads were a little better but still horrible.
Colin asked if he could go play in the snow. I told him no currently has the sniffles. School is out again today & most likely tomorrow.

Hubby goes to the Dr

G's had a Dr visit today. They are going to change his medicine for the neuropathy. I sure hope it helps. He's so tired of being at home & not at work.
I've had a lot of bad news this week. A really sweet woman that took care of her ill husband for many years was just diagnosed w/ lung cancer. She didn't smoke.
A 41 yr old co worker of mine died over the weekend. He didn't show up for church Sunday & didn't show up for the MLK parade Monday. The police was sent to his home & they found him dead. I had just talked to him last week. We were walking back to his desk he asked what was wrong. I told him I wasn't feeling well. He grabbed my hand & said let pray. He started praying that I feel better. I told him I did feel better & Thanks.
What bothers me is these things seem to happen to good people. The people running around inflicting nothing but pain & evil into the world don't seem to get cancer. I don't think life is a cake walk for anyone but I don't like to see bad things happen to good people. I know it's reality but I still don't like it.
Colin wanted to stay home from school inaugural day. He said only he & one other boy would be in school. I said no one from your school called & said there would be no school so you are going.
His school is not free so if they are open he is there unless he's sick or vacation. His school always seem to be so shocked that we take him out of school to go on vacation.
I told him I'm sure they will show the inauguration at school on TV & they did. I remember watching man walk on the moon on TV at school.

Happy Birthday to my mother!! Your the best. Maybe someone will tell you I mentioned it on the blog. My mom doesn't read my blog. :)

G is ill

G is not feeling well. He's been sick for a few days. He has a call into the Dr. They want him to see a neurologist. I wasn't pleased w/ my neurologist visit. I went for headaches & they told me I had carpel tunnel.
I really hope it's nothing major. He could use a break on the health issues.

Feeling good

I feel so much better. Eating better & exercise is the key for me. I'm so proud of myself. I climbed 6 flights of stairs this morning. I wasn't breathing as hard as I was a month ago climbing 3 flights. Yeah I'm getting into shape.
K, mom & I are meeting at mom's house Sunday evenings to weigh. I wasn't going to weigh because my new jeans were a little snug. I was certain I had gained weight & who needs that downer. I decided to weigh & was delighted I had lost almost 4 pounds. I'm sure it will be back next week but I will not be discouraged today.
May goal is to climb 5 more flights this afternoon.

G is a little down because he's gaining weight. With the feet issues he can't be as mobile as he would like. I want to say quit buying pop & ice cream. I quit buying it years ago so he goes to the grocery store & buys his pop, ice cream & cookies. He's an adult & know he should eat better. I've emailed & shared countless literature on the benefit of certain foods for fighting cancer. Years ago when he was more fit & I was not; he didn't harass me so I will not harass him. Please pray for his feet, some days he gets very frustrated. I understand & wish it was more I could do to help him.

Fitness 09

I'm working hard to keep walking 4 flights of stairs twice a day. My joints hurt really bad Wednesday but I kept walking. I know their are people that can't walk so I don't want to complain. It's supposed to be 70 degrees today but tonight close to freezing. Never a dull moment.

Colin attended his first break dance class. He did great. He was a little lost in the beginning but by the end of class he had nailed the moves. They all get in a large circle & free style dance, at the end of class. Colin had a ball. He did his best moves, he was so cute. Most of the class is really advance. He cheered when several of them did head spins. He can head spin too; but I hate to see him do it. It scares me & I don't want him to get hurt.

G is still having the same feet issues. Yesterday he was in pain watching the big game.

Work in progress

My sister, mom & I started a healthy plan. We all want to lose weight & be healthier.
We weighed, measured & signed a contract with ourselves. This morning I came into work & a co-worker brought in donuts from an awesome bakery. So far today I've resisted. I hope they are all eaten soon. :) I did climb 4 flights of stairs. I plan to do 4 more in the afternoon.

G sd Colin was not so excited to return to school today. He is excited about gymnastics.
He did a backhand spring last week & I wasn't there because I was still at work.
I hope I get to see him do a back handspring today.

G's hands are much better. He still drops things from time to time but not as often. His feet still give him trouble. The Dr had upped the medication dosage but he's still having issues. He didn't sleep so well last night so he's napping today, since little precious is back in school. I hope he doesn't nap too long because he won't be able to sleep tonight.
