project 365 - 8/30 missing her

8/30, originally uploaded by suzbucket.
She was the one I would run to for advise. The one who gave me the greatest hugs. I always felt so fortunate to have her in my life.

I remember the last time i went with her for one of her chemo treatments we were talking and she smiled and kept thanking me for taking her to her appointment. I always told her no thanks needed, I wanted to be with her.

Right now i really need her. I wish she was here.

Project 365 - 8/28 6 miles just for fun

8/28, originally uploaded by suzbucket.
Today was an amazing day.

All of the greater Los Angeles Team in Training Teams met on the Westside at Dockwilder Beach for a huge team run. We are still at the beginning of our Winter training season so our milage was set at 6 miles. I know for quite a few 6 miles is still quite a challenge, but when you are amongst friends and just chatting away before you know it those 6 miles just fly by. Today was one of those days. It felt really good to do those 6 miles was an amazing day.

Project 365 - 8/27 Quiet Time

8/27, originally uploaded by suzbucket.

It happens. I get super stressed out and I forget things. Yesterday I forgot all about a family dinner :(

I am working on a project for the UCLA Alumni Association and it's put me in high stress alert. There is just a lot I need to do and little time to do it in. I woke up this morning and decided I need to work from home. I needed the quiet. I've got a lot done and need a lot more to do, but at least it's been quiet. :) Not that my co-workers are loud, but at least at home I can work without being distributed.

It's not fun working from home. In fact it sucks, but I have gotten a lot done and that is a big plus. Looking forward to a quiet weekend so that I can unwind.

This new medicine is driving me crazy! Everyday around 3:30 or so I get all shaky, i break out in a cold sweat, I can't talk and my heart is beating what feels to be a thousand beats a minute. Yesterday was pretty bad. I just couldn't wait to get home. Once I was home it took me another half hour or so to feel better.

It's one of the side affects of taking the diabetes medicine. :( It's not a good feeling and I hate to admit it but I got really scared. Usually I can talk myself into being calm, but yesterday no.

Suddenly it's hitting me

Reading the newsletter and realizing I have 69 more days until the marathon. WOW. Anxiety is hitting and WHY? Well because I missed a 14 mile training run this weekend. I only completed 5 miles and I told myself no slacking. I've been doing OK, but need to do better. I need to get my coach to kick my butt in gear. Mark are you reading this? You aren't doing your job and I may need to fire you.

Project 365 - 3/23 same old, same old..

Everyday I eat salads for lunch - not because I want to, but because I have to. Someone help I've tried making them exciting, telling myself oh YUM this is the best salad ever. Where what I really crave is a slice of pizza or maybe some tasty Chinese food...oh wait..scratch all that..give me a butterfinger. Honestly I don't normally crave any of that stuff, just knowing I shouldn't have it makes me crave it. So yeah back to my salad..oh YUM.. spring mix greens with chicken, cucumber, cranberries, feta cheese...oh YUM... yeah Gross. I'm not falling for it either, but yes I ate it and my tummy is happy for it.

What am I reading? Names my Sisters call me. Recommended by my little sister. She gave it to me and said here read it, I think you need to read it. UUmm.... hint hint I suppose.  

Basically it's about relationships, sisters mainly, the fighting, the drama, and the one being stuck in the middle. So here I am reading it, reading it very slowly. Finally on chapter 4 after 3 weeks of having it. Here's to hoping it gets better soon. These chicks have nothing on me and my sisters. Just saying. :)~

These 2 layouts have been posted above my craft table for a couple of weeks now. I keep meaning to finish them, but it's just not happening. My scraproom is little on the hot side and so I've been avoiding it. BUT today I plan on going in there and finishing them up. Maybe. :) If its too hot when I get home I think I'll go do some aqua jogging. Yeah aqua-jogging sounds like the plan.

More blood test revealed...yes I have diabetes.
My doctor, being as sweet as she is, looking at my blood test results said.." Uumm... , this doesn't look good. You do have diabetes."
Me: Oh.
Doc.: I am going to give you a prescription to help control your blood sugar.
Me: OK. (Thinking...yeah explains why I am always so tired.)
Doc.: Now, this still doesn't look good. You need to get an ultra sound of your liver done. Something is going on with your liver.
Me: OK.

Umm.... OK is this what happens to you when you turn 40. All of a sudden you break down? I hope the pills will help, because I am tired of always being tired. I don't know what to think of the liver thing. Can I get a new one? Well if something is wrong with the one I have, I want a new one. Just saying. Where is the list, put me down for one OK. Thanks.

I drive in traffic everyday to work. Sometimes I look around and watch people sing, sometimes I sing. Sometimes I see them pick their nose and wonder if they realize someone is watching them. Oh the fun I have driving to work.

My son came in and show me this picture and said "Mom you're going to be a grandma." I looked at him and said WWWHHHAATT!!

My sister was behind him and laughed. She said it's mine. WWWHHAATT and the tears came rolling in. I've been hoping and wishing for a new addition to the family. I am so very happy for her. I hope the baby comes out to be a bad ass- just like her. March is just so far away!
