well aren't you just full of motivation today?
I can only please one person per day. Today is not your day, tomorrow doesn't look good either.

You, yes you, you are the one I am talking to.
You spend too much time finding fault in who you are or in your mistakes. They are behind you and you can't change the past.
You, yes you, you worry too much about the future. It isn't here yet and there are so many things outside of your control that can affect that.
You, you can in this moment realize.
You are beautiful.
You are powerful.
You are loved and can give love. By giving love you multiply the love that comes back you you.
You, yes you, can start today to be grateful for your past and find the wisdom in it. Live in the now and love that you can bring to you a future with more hope, gratitude and love. It all starts with YOU!

Having PBT in My Life. Seriously. :neutral: Sitting in this hospital bed, light/noise sensitive, nauseated :puke: and dizzy :crazy2: as Hell............I can always count on my friends here to take a moment to answer a chat message or respond on FB---You all have seen me through some pretty tough times, and now is no exception. Just wanted to pass that on. :dance:

FINALLY done with more radiation treatment and having the support of close friends and a man who rocks my world to pull me through it. This round was worse than last summer's round on my back but they got all the spots on my right leg and this kind of cancer stays gone if it is caught early.

In a few short days I have can milk and cheese. Oh how I missed my skim milk and cheddar cheese!

I can sympathize with you about the nausea, I would rather be in extreme pain than deal with nausea. I've spent a good deal of time plastered on the cold tile floor in front of the toilet so I won't have to go far. Birdie dragged her blanket into the bathroom and slept in the tub.

BTW - I found that pure peppermint tea with the tiniest touch of honey or stevia and old fashioned horehound candy really worked at keeping the nausea at a dull roar so I didn't have to take as much of the nasty medications up until the last few weeks.

New foot tattoo yesterday.

It's kind of puffy and painful now (my body AND my resistance to pain are going down the drain with time - I used to be able to sit 8 hour sessions and not budge, AND have no swelling, yesterday 1 3/4 hours and I wanted to kick the tattoo artist in the face) BUT I'm soooooooo happy about it.

Also, both my foot and I survived our 11-hour shift today. I did not even collapse on the couch when I got home! :D

Lastly, I love my dogs.

I must report on yesterday's random act of kindness...

Driving on the left side of the road, on roads that are barely two lanes wide, with NASTY pot holes makes travel quite difficult. I hit three or four very deep pot holes going about sixty and worried that I was going to end up with a flat. After a few hours of driving, we were headed back to the hotel, and the van behind me was driving very close and flashing his lights. Every time I looked in the rear view mirror, he jestured to pull over. It was freaking me out. I finally found a spot and pulled to the side. He did as well. And then he got out of his car.

I was pretty freaked out... then he walked up to Demo's side of the car and reached to open the door!! AAAHHHHHH!!!! As the door opened, he handed him the hubcap that had fallen off of the passenger side front tire about 5 miles earlier. He said "I'm sorry, you were probably wondering who was driving like a crazy person behind you, but you lost this back at the quarry." We thanked him profusely, and he got back in his car and headed back the other way - probably to town, which was about a mile back.

So, this total stranger saw us lose a hubcap, and not only stopped and got out of his van to get it, but followed us into town, and then towards our hotel to give it back to us. I have to admit I was floored.

I feel like I've seen this in a liftime movie once - the stalker starts out by "helping you" :wink:

Kidding aside that is really cool!! It's awesome that there are still nice people out there - I think it just helps remind us to pay it forward when we can.

I'm happy today because Seth's UKC LP card came in the mail! There's a trial Sunday that's like... 5 miles away. I think we're just going to try Rally since I haven't really been doing much with him in the obedience department. Either way I'm excited!

I'm able to manuever MYSELF in the wheel chair (but can't stand alone yet)....so when the breeze blows, I can go to the window instead of just having to listen from the bed!! :)
