Today was a good day

I slept really well last night.  That just doesn't happen very often!  I woke up and had coffee and then got in the shower, got nice clothes on; put make-up on, did my hair and went to the store to grocery shop.  LoL

It wasn't a date, it wasn't going to dinner, it was going to the store.  But, I felt awesome while I shopped.  I still had the cannula around my face, but today I felt like people actually could be noticing me instead of my disease.  It felt GREAT!

Today is Cinco De Mayo... years ago this would have meant a party, some drinks... at least a good BBQ and a few friends.  Today I made roasted corn and black bean salsa and Bill and I ate in front of the T.V..  So, life isn't a party every holiday anymore.  It's still life and that's what counts.

This month is a busy one for me.  Actually the next 2 months.  Saturday is Britt's boyfriends Mom's Birthday.  So, we are having a party for her.  We all pitched in and bought her a desk top computer.  She will be so surprised and happy.  Then Sunday of course is Mother's Day.  The 14th is what would be Bill and my 29th Anniversary.  The 16th my primary care doctor's appointment to follow up on the new heart meds and my heart catheter.  The 29th is Layla's Birthday... a big 6 year old girl! 

Next month the 1st is my cardiologist appointment.  Then the 12th is Brittney's Birthday and sometime during that week my brothers and I are supposed to get together to have a little memorial for our mom.  I am so looking forward to seeing them.  I miss them terribly. 

I left this out of the above only because I think it deserves it's own line....... The 10th of June Brittney is graduating with her Associates Degree and a CNA license.  She was invited into the Phi Theta Kappa Honors Society.  I am so proud of her.  For being a single mother and going back to school for a nursing degree is one thing.  But to carry a 4+ and above every term is amazing.  I am beaming I am so proud!!  She is something that girl of mine.  She is continuing on with nursing until she gets her RN's license. 

So.. the next weeks will be SO busy.  That is good and bad.  Wonderful because of the milestones.  But I don't do well with stress anymore.  It tends to almost make me have anxiety attacks.  If things stay calm and go as planned that's awesome... If things start getting hectic I'll melt down. 

I know...Breath in and out and repeat!  LOL

It's time for bed.  I have taken my medication and am coming to that magic moment.  For my records I took another 5 fiber pills today and drank 4 16 0z glasses of water.  :)

So glad to hear you sound upbeat!!

WTG Kellie !!!!!!!!!!!!!

Like you this Month is full of special things and the pollen is high here so going outside is a problem for me .. having the house redone is stressful but I bet I will breath better when the smoke filled rooms are repainted and new floors. Hugs my dear friend ..

Hugs to you too Linda. I have wondered how you were doing and hoped well.

Our air quality is just terrible. It will look like a lovely day and just walking in and out of stores will send me home in pain.

It really sucks! LoL It seems this year is starting out worse than last year as far as being kept inside.

You will have to post pictures of your newly painted rooms with new floors. How exciting!

I have missed you, you'll have to stop by more often.
