Good morning everyone!

I’m off to work with my mom today.  We are getting ready for an upcoming yard sale we are doing together in a few weeks.  I am feeling really great today.  I have had so much energy in the last couple of weeks.  Now with the racquetball I am getting some good cardio and I feel great.  I haven’t felt this good in years.  Sad huh? 

I have my two month check up on Tuesday.  I’m kind of excited about it since this is the one where they will release me to normal life.  Fingers crossed. 

For those of you who want to know, I have now lost 56  pounds.  Yesterday when we were working in the yard I wore my fanny pack with my Walkman in it for the first time since the surgery.  (Yep I still wear a fanny pack.)  I couldn’t believe it.  I snapped it and it fell off.  I was so excited I had to measure it.  I had to cinch the sucker 7 inches!  Can you believe it?

Hope everyone had a great weekend.  We had a good one, but you can read all about it below if you want.  I just want to ask for your prayers really quick.  For silvernicks who is starting her new job today.  For sulimb who is still a bit sick but on the mend, however her husband just stumbled in the door with the same case of the cruds she has had for the last week.  Please pray for hisgatekeeper, my hubby, who is testing for tech in about three weeks.  Okay I think that is about it. 

And with that I will leave you with my thoughts and prayers.  Hope everyone has a great day.  This feels like a good week.  Like koffeekween said, two beginnings in one week.  Monday a new week and Tuesday a new month.  Take care everyone.

Oh yeah I know the song doesn’t fit the post but the sound of it does.  I used to love this song in high school so for me it screams happy hot summer days with the windows rolled down just cruising along the highway.  Happy days.
