~Last Sunday of 2008~

I hate to copy fellow bloggers talking about the crazy weather, but it seems that no matter where you live the weather has been just that...crazy! Just last week we struggled to get into double-digits, then had ice, the last couple of days we set record warmth with temps near 70, last night we were under a tornado watch and had severe storms, and now today it is absolutely b-e-a-u-tiful outside and a high of 50ish. I know I sound like a meteorologist, but seriously! But today is gorgeous...better enjoy while I can, it could change in an instant!

I got up this morning and incorporated two of my favorite things: running and Desperate Housewives. My mom got me a DVD box set of Season 4 so I popped it in this morning and ended up watching like 2 1/2 episodes on my 10-mile run. It was wonderful. Not only to have a great run, but to watch one of my fave shows while I'm doing it! The episode I finished on was the one where Lynette's anti-nausea drugs weren't working during her chemo so her mom secretly used some "alternative methods" for medicinal purposes and baked it into brownies so she would "feel better!" It cracked me up! Needless to say, she seemed to feel much better! Ha! It gave me a good laugh!

Our trip to STL was good...quick, but good. I like that an echo is probably the easiest tests I've had. You just have to lay there. And turns out that the lady doing the test is a 2-year breast cancer survivor and she was full of wisdom and encouragement. It's so awesome how God continues to put these people in my path to lift my spirits and keep me strong! Hallelujah LORD! We don't have official results yet, those will come at my chemo appt this Friday. The tech said it looked about the same as before, but a cardiologist has to read it of course. I continue to believe that the results are going to be great! I'm Believing God! (Shout out to those also doing the "Believing God" Bible study by Beth Moore!!)

There is nothing going on here today. My hubby took the boys out for the day and Katie and I are here just enjoying our girls' day and quiet house! We took the tree and all the Christmas decorations down yesterday so there isn't even any work for us to do! Yay! I hope everybody else has a good and relaxing Sunday!

First of all, your Christmas sounded awesome! Your husband is amazing for getting you a new laptop!

And ditto on the crazy weather. Although in FL it's just crazy in that it's so stinkin' hot. :/

Can't believe 2008 is really almost over! Hope you and Katie enjoy your girls day. :)

Mrs. LC said...

Oh, and I meant to tell you that I'm still praying for you and I truly think of you often! :) Hope the echo results come back as good as gold!

Haha no worries - the weather is definitely worth talking about a lot, since it's so crazy these days!!

Sounds like you've had a lot of fun and good things going on lately - hope the same occurs today, on your restful/quiet Sunday!!

I love Desperate Housewives! It's such a great treadmill show because I get so into it. Hope you're having a good week!
