Picking myself up and moving on
Wednesday, June 25, 2008
This has been one of the longest weeks of my life! I can't believe my kitty has been gone for a week. I feel like the biggest cry baby on earth. Just when I think I am doing okay, I start crying again. It usually hits me at night when I sit down and expect him to curl up on my lap, or when I go to bed and he doesn't follow. I have tried to put his picture on my computer and my cell phone so I can be close to him. I appreciate so much all of my spark friends and the compassion people have shown. It helps me get through the days knowing I have such great people around me!
Yesterday was my first day back training for the Breast Cancer Walk. I did 5 miles and my knee is okay so far. I walked 9 holes of golf today which took about 2 1/2 hours and no swelling yet! The pain I could care less about, it is the swelling that cuts off the blood flow that can cause problems. Tomorrow I am scheduled to do 6 miles so I figure after 3 days in a row I should know if things are better than they were.
My youngest daughter graduated from high school on Saturday so I have also downloaded a couple of those pictures. It was a beatiful day- pretty hot in the robes but it went off without a hitch. The awesome thing about both of us working in the school district is that we march in with the faculty and sit right next to the kids. My husband handed her the diploma which was also really special.
Eating has been on and off this week. We had a couple of parties that didn't go very well for me. I still have a really hard time controlling myself when there are big spreads all over the table. I do lots of "picking" and before you know it- OOPS!!!!!! I still remain focused and determined, so that is all that matters!
