Day 139

Sunday, January 8, 2017

Temperature: High 17° / Low 8°

I’m glad I’m not a Steeler today! Playing football while it “Feels like 3º” is ridiculous...I’ll stay a fan...a warm fan who cheers from the living room.

That’s me!


What Kind of Day Did I Have & Why?

The Steelers beat the Dolphins and we’re moving on through the playoffs, so how could the day NOT be wonderful?
Our errands were completed early in the day and we thoroughly enjoyed watching the game with a chunk of our friends…“The Pittsburgh Crew”...

...it was a good day!


How Do I Feel? Health/Lupie Status?

I had a rough and achy-handed start to the morning, but by noon I was in a good place...A good ole’ extra pain pill did the trick! I’ll give the pain an overall 5 today, which is progress from yesterday. I’m hoping for more tomorrow!

And speaking of yesterday, I had a nice and open conversation with friends today about my Lupus. We agree that I should share more about that part of my journey, so I am now going to be more open and descriptive in this area -- where possible. I think it is good for me, and for overall awareness. I’m not the only person on Earth with Lupus (or any auto-immune disease for that matter)
and I’m going to stop acting like I am!


Workout Time & Duration?

Soooo….yeah, about that...That didn’t happen today, but I’m ready for the week!
I made plans with my Workout Buddy and everything! 5 days strong is happening!


Destination Wedding Task Tackled:

Even with all of the hosting that took place today, I was able to get the go-ahead from Che on the napkin progress and then send  Lea at Aline Mayan (I fondly call her my napkin lady) our approval to move forward and send us a PayPal request for the deposit for her work.
It is going DOWN!  

Any Old Destination Wedding Tasks Making a Comeback?

Nope! Not today

Loving Black Love Moment?

Today’s Loving Black Love Moment comes courtesy of our friends.
We had a great time going down our memory lane of all the celebrations that we have shared in the past 3 years and it really is good to get together and celebrate each other!

Love, Peace and Nappiness!

And that reminds me of how much we (and by we, I mean I) really suck at taking pictures...I reeally need to get that together.


What am I happy for?

Hearing about the friends and family who book their flights and trips for the wedding!


THAT makes me REALLY happy!

And of course, that Steelers win!


What could I have done better?

I seriously could have taken some pictures of the group today.
I have the journaling of memories part down packed...but now, if I could only get the photography piece on track. Gots-to do better there!
Yes, I said Gots...it’s a word...kinda


What am I doing tomorrow?

  1. Working out
  2. Getting our meal plan for the week in order, and
  3. Finding a way to make tomorrow better than today...that won’t be easy, but I’m up for the challenge!
