Life get's so busy

I need a break, a break from my life. It's been so busy lately that I just feel wiped out.

My co-worker will be back tomorrow from being off 2 1/2 weeks for emergency surgery. Then I will be able to catch up on my own job for a week before I leave for Virginia to see my daughter and her family.

VBS is over. It was a long week but a good one. I ended up with a migraine pretty much all weekend again. I think I've been doing too much with not enough rest in between.

Went to see Harry Potter, the final movie. I love that series. I've read the series of books at least 6 times and I'm thinking it's time to go through them again.

My husband got hit by a car while riding his bike home from work last week. A driver turned right without looking right for bikers or pedestrians, a very common hazard for bikers. They are all okay, but I think Sweetie damaged his shoulder/collar bone on left side. He still has sharp pain there a week later.

My daughter is having some complications in pregnancy - hopefully not major. There's a chance she'll have an early C-section. We should find out more tomorrow after some more testing.

Sweetie went on an all-day fishing charter out of Seward this last Saturday and came home with fresh halibut and salmon. I love both. We had salmon for dinner last night and then topped it off with some smoked salmon for dessert.

A friend whose recently retired (the one I drew the ravens in tree picture for) has been diagnosed with cancer....a very small, slow-growing cancer and her expected recovery is good. BUT, I hate to hear the word cancer. It scares me for her. We are having lunch today.
Please pray for her.

I think we are taking that break this weekend by heading up to the cabin. I need it, but feel like it's been too busy at work to take time off. I sometimes wish I could be the one who doesn't care and just let's the ball drop. But I can't; it's not my nature. Hopefully I can get a lot done before Friday so I can take it off and have a 3-day weekend in the woods.

Oh boy you sure do need some down time lol

Did you know they have a vaccine they make out your own cancer cells which they reinject you with and then your body knows which cells to kill and which are friendlies?
I don't know if ti works on all cancers but its worth a try to ask the doctors if they can try it out on people. So far they just tried it on dogs.

You have been busy!

Biking can definately be dangerous! Hope the hubbys shoulder heals up soon.

When is the new grandbaby due?

Enjoy the cabin this weekend and relax a lot!

Wow, you definately need time off. Listen to your body. Hopefully the migraines will lessen if you take care of your own needs.

I'll say a prayer for your friend as well as your daughter and grandbaby.

Now go relax!
