Been way too long…again!
I have a lot to say today.
First, I really do not want to be at work today. I am sleepy and unmotivated which only leads to a crappy slow day at work. Boo!
Second, I would like to tell you about a young man (25 years old) who I went to school with for 3 years. Cody was a funny and outgoing person. He always had a smile on his face. It is hard to think about Cody now because he was taken from his family and friends on Sunday. As funny as the Swine Flu parodies are it is hard to laugh at them now. Cody died from the Swine Flu. He was only 25. So sad. His service is on Saturday. Prayers and thoughts to his family and friends. RIP Cody.
Third, I decided to email my doctor this morning about some really low basal body temperatures that I have getting for the last 5 days. My lowest was this morning. 95.95. Too low!! I am concerned because I did some research and the low temperatures are known to be caused by Hypothyroidism. I would really like to get this checked out soon just so I have some peace of mind. Hypothyroidism can lead to infertility so we do not want that!! As soon as I get an appointment I will have the updates. All of this would explain why I am so sleepy all the time and why I can’t seem to drop weight even with working out and eating healthy.
Forth, Wellness Challenge. Doing good this week so far. 120 minutes as of yesterday. YAY!! Last week I wasn’t as on top of it but there is always room for improvement. Lol Hanging in there though.
Fifth, got together with my old youth group on Sunday. It was a lot of fun to catch up with some old friends and hear about their lives and see their significant others too. It was hard though too. One of the youth members, Joe, was not able to attend. He has been fighting cancer for over 2 years now and unfortunately his battle is almost at an end. He decided to stop Chemo at the beginning of September and since then they did a PET scan and his entire chest is black. The cancer is winning and he has come to terms with that. He has signed Hospice papers and has all of his paper work done and now is just focusing on his wife and his 2 year old son. He is 28. It makes me tear up just thinking about it. Why? Why does this happen to good people? Prayers go to him and his family for patience, love, happiness and faith. When something like this comes up in life it truly makes me thankful for what and who I have in my family. Never take anything for granted.
Well I guess I didn’t have as much to talk about as I thought I did. But that’s all that is coming to my mind right now. Maybe more will show up later. Happy Hump Day!
