Today has been a busy day, started out taking my car in for GM recall work and an oil change. While waiting for my car to be done, I took a long walk. It was 4.5 miles round trip to the mall and back. It was an awesome walk, the sun was out and that always makes me feel better. I found a dollar bill on the ground, along with 2 pennies and a dime along the way. I always pick up the change I see on the ground, it's kind of a game now, see how much I can find when I walk
. It's amazing how many pennies we pick up in a year of walking. It doesn't add up to much, but I'll bet we pick up $20 in change every year.
I finished up my Christmas shopping today, as well as purchasing some stretchy pants for after my surgery. I don't have any pants, other than workout pants that stretch, and with abdominal surgery coming up in 11 days, I knew I needed to do something. People online are posting that they aren't wearing jeans 3 weeks post op because of the pain. 17 days post op I'm hosting our family Christmas party, where there will be pictures taken, so I had to find something I could wear to that. By hosting the party, I mean it will be at my house, but everyone else is doing the work this year. My daughter volunteered to host it at her house, so if I absolutely can't do it, it will be at her house. I know I won't be lifting anything heavier than a gallon of milk for a few months, but we'll see how I feel.
Knowing that I'm done Christmas shopping makes me smile! I only have 5 presents left to wrap, and that makes me smile too!
My hubby makes me smile today. He's so caring and loving, and has the patience of a saint. I hope he keeps that up after surgery. I know this cancer thing is bothering him a lot more than he lets on.
I'm smiling, knowing that uterine cancer is cureable. It's scary to know that I have it, but knowing that it's cureable is awesome. Knowing that on 12/3 the doctor will take that yucky stuff out of my body makes me smile. Knowing that my family is behind me and supports me 100% makes me smile.
Today is a good day. They aren't all like this, so we have to take days where we can smile and embrace them!
