October 22, 2015 – HAPPY DAY

I cannot get over it. I am so much more happy today then I have been in a while..  Figuring out how to manage my stomach issues and having such a great support system is so helpful. My stomach feels so much better thanks to my lovely daughter telling me the right thing to ask my doctor.  I have a medication that is taking away the constant burning feeling.

And I am getting very excited for being in NY City next weekend to support my sweetie running the NY City Marathon.  The last time he ran it was in 1980.. a long time ago I guess. 35 years???? Seems like yesterday.

Had a nice morning coffee with my friend Jeanne.  She is just a wonderful person and I am glad we reconnected over these last couple of years.   She is one smart woman and so much more level headed than I am.  Inspires me to stop and think at times.  Not always but sometimes.

Halloween in next weekend. Had to send the little kids a card with some stickers.  I might actually see them on Halloween but in case not they will have something from me.

I love medications – I was raised by the daughter of a doctor and a pharmacist. Growing up we almost never went to a doctor. My dad would figure out what was the matter with us and then give us some drugs.  My sweet husband was raised just the opposite.  No medicine, just go to bed until you feel better.  I got tea and sympathy and he got nothing much unless it was something really serious like surgery.  So when I get sick I go for the medicine since that would be normal.  And now I have a plan to treat this stupid stomach condition with medications so I am sure I will do better.

Yesterday was our anniversary. We had a fun chat at dinner time about what was going on at my parents house at the reception after we left.  We even drank to the family that throws drinks at each other. NOT MINE>>>>  Was going to tell you the whole story but will have to wait for another day to do that.  I am just lucky that husband is not a game player and that we have wonderful family who love us and accept us just the way we are.

We plan to celebrate our anniversary on Saturday. Going on an outing which will be lovely.  Not sure exactly where yet but where ever it will be nice to have the day together.  My plane leaves at 5:30 am so hope I can sleep on the way out.  There are three of us going to the training from around here. Don’t know what the other woman looks like.  Will have to let her know what I look like so we can meet up before the plane leaves.  So will be super busy between now and then.

Let’s go back to Charles since my adventures are not very exciting.
