Saturday: Had a special breakfast this morning (zoomed, of course!). Made bixcuits (took a short cut and used Pillsbury Grands). Poached eggs. Country Gravy and grits. Southern Eggs Benedict! So Good!

Otherwise, we have just a few things left to get together to pack. Then weíll be ready to take off on Sunday morning.

HUGS and have a good Saturday. Happy Halloween.

Melissa: Glad you found a helpful tool. AND got a run in.

Isn't it amazing how weather can be so different just 20 min. from you!

Have a good weekend and Happy Halloween.

Got in a cold, but sunny run this morning! Awesome 11 miles, no snow. The snow ended up staying south of me, but not by much, my husband's co-worker had a car covered in snow, and she's only 20 minutes from us!

Just discovered a new video tool that takes quick videos of me and my screen, and allows me to get a link from them, and I'm using them to grade lab report drafts. I did that for like two hours today, and I have to do more this weekend.

Ok, have a great weekend and Halloween!

I'm glad you have sun, we have been mostly rain, and it does look like we'll see snow overnight tonight. I was just thinking that we would get out of October with no snow, oh well!

Fortunately, I don't have much to do tomorrow, but my SO needs to work in the morning, out of the house, so he'll get to deal with the first snowfall!

In three more days, it will be light at this time of morning, I'm excited about that! Not that it lasts, but still, I'll take it.

Wednesday: Big news of the day is that Jasí surgery for the thyroid has been approved. Now have to wait for the scheduler for details (the gal we spke. w/did not have the information about whether it was the alcohol ablation or the radiofrequency ablation, but it will be one of those). Assuming it will be another trip up there but relieved it wonít be an open surgery.

Cold. But sunshine. I can handle the sunshine!

Hugs and happy Wednesday.

Melissa: Yea for finding your groove! It feels so good when you do! Sometimes takes a while!

Hah, yeah, the weather can't quite decide here, it's been mostly warmer (40s-50s), but we might finally see some snow overnight tomorrow depending on Zeta's direction, then have our first really chilly night on Friday. I've got my warm running gear, so I'm ready.

Still pretty busy, but finding my groove again and getting things caught up, more or less.

Sunday: Rain and snow mix today. Did have peeks of sun yesterday. That was nice.

John must have gotten his brakes fixed as he texted pictures of the food he prepared @ work yesterday. Didnít hear anything else from him, though. So glad he made it to work. I know he was worried about that.

Getting things packed little by little for going to Mayo. Donít want to rush.

Man, you really have had nothing but crazy this year, plus all the rest of the crazy the whole country is dealing with. My continued good thoughts toward all y'all.

I've been really lazy today, which is probably good from a mental health perspective, but I do need to get off my butt and accomplish some work today, so I'm going to go do that.

Friday: Looks like more rain.

At least itís FriYaY, right.

Not such a great morning. Phone rang @ 1:30 am. IT was Clara. Thought there was something wrong for her again. Nope. She got a call from John. His car was in a ditch. He had walked home and thatís when he called her, then she called us. We talked w/him briefly and he was shook up but all right. No details really about what happened till this morning.

Clara took him to see about getting the car towed around 5 am. The car wasnít there. Itíd been impounded. So now he has to wait for a call from them. Apparently his brakes were bad. Omg. Just cannot fathom what the rest of this idiotic year is going to be like. IíM . DONE . WITH . 2020 . already. **SIGH** Glad heís all right, though. Clara is off, so if he gets a call about picking the car up, sheís going to take him. She lives 10 minutes from him vs. 25 for us, besides the fact that we have to be isolating. GAH!!!!!

HUGS and TGIF.

Melissa: Glad you'll have a chill weekend!

Happy Thursday! This is becoming the longest week I have lived through in a while, midterms were due, so that's always killer, I facilitated two large group meetings, and I'm just barely keeping up, but I got tomorrow, so I'll get there.

However, I ran yesterday, my legs feel good, and tomorrow looks sunny, and my weekend is pretty chill. I've got this.

Hello!

I did the 50K on Saturday, and it was fantastic! It took us 10.5 hours, and my legs hurt right afterwards! However, much better soon after, except I've been trying to catch up on everything after pretty much taking the weekend off. I'm getting there, I think.

Rainy here, so at least I have two good excuses for not getting in many miles today, and maybe tomorrow.

Have a good week!

Monday: Looks like rain . . . a little . . . mixed with . . . *S* Still cold, but itís that time of the year. The temps are supposed to reach near 60 on Thursday, but then right back into the 40ís. Hmmm. . . . the sun came out. Thatís an improvement!

Plan to check in w/the surgeon again this afternoon. HOPEFUL weíll have some information, but . . . wonít hold my breath. Left a message.

Got a call from DD. *SIGH* She is on the path to divorce. While I didnít say so, it is no surprise, and I think itís for the best. She has to be done w/him once and for all. I think sheís there. Gave her the name of our atty. and she did call. Called us back to tell us the advice she was given (all good) and is going to take care of finances today. Steps in the right direction. Sad. But he just is not a good person.

I wish you all a motivated Monday!

Sunday: Had a wonderful, but short visit w/Clara yesterday. We sat in the garage (and it was COLD!) but we were bundled up. She looked good and seems like the problems are ironed out for now. I think it will be a continual process, but sheíll learn that, too.

Same gunky weather today. OH well.

Still working on keeping up, but I'm slowly but surely getting there.

Today is supposed to be in the mid-70s! Probably our last actual warm day and I'll finally have to turn my heat on.

On Saturday, my running buddies and I are doing a 50K! It's going to be a long, crazy day, but I'm excited. I also need to plan my nutrition and buy stuff tomorrow.

Wednesday: Had to run out and get a suitcase for next month. Found one and it was on sale. Glad I went early. NOBODY out. Thank goodness.

Otherwise, just @ home. Finished some more deep cleaning.

The weather was weird yesterday. Sunny, then rained. Just short lived rain. Then in the afternoon got very windy. Felt cold. But better with the sun out.

Tuesday: Rained all day yesterday till 5 pm. PHEW. LOTS of leaves down.

Jason did well on the physical. His Dr. said, ďYouíre in pretty good shape for the shape youíre in.Ē He was referring to the thyroid cancer. It took him by surprise. DUH! Us, too. So, good to know thereís no other problems besides the spine and thyroid. Thatís enough!

Got lots of housework done, so that was a bonus to the rainy weather.

The surgeon said the plan of care for Jason is still being worked on . So, more patience.

HUGS and have a great Tuesday.

Michelle: Self-fulfilling prophecy, right! You keep saying it and eventually it will get done! Good luck.

Happy Tuesday! Trying to actually get caught up on my grading for real today. If I keep saying that, maybe it will eventually be true!

Rainy morning, so not much walk with the pups, may try to get out again later. Cloudy and cool this afternoon, but at least not raining!

Hello happy Sunday! Ran a really nice 5K out through the corn this morning with some great views, and some annoying hills. It was a real live event with people and everything, but spaced out and masks when not running.

Then was involved in a fantastic church service for National Coming Out Day with some really great music that I helped with.

Great Sunday, now on to getting my actual work stuff done.

Saturday: Zoom breakfast. Pancakes again. But topped w/fruit compote. Good! Just sad to not be able to go, but WI is just in bad shape w/the virus and cannot afford to get ill.

No word yesterday from the surgeon, so have to be patient and wait till Monday. But Iíd rather things be done right than in a hurry.

Have a sensational Saturday.

Yes, we had fantastic weather today, and I did a run up where the leaves were just perfect this morning. It was super nice.

Then, I spent the rest of the day grading, and I'm almost sort of caught up. I'll get there.

Have a good weekend!

We had crazy rain and wind and apparently even hail yesterday, but I was inside, and actually at school, so I missed all of it, woot! I just get the nice slightly cooler weather today, and some sun.

Trying to grade paper drafts for my early start, short class that is almost over. Things will be far easier once this class is finally done. They have been extra needy.

Okay, more tea, more work, onward!

I am being pretty productive this week, and somehow still getting further behind! That's okay, today and tomorrow should be pretty good catch-up days. The second half of my weeks are better than the first.

However, I got in a 5K run this morning and felt good, so that's great! Jumping back on my strength work as well. Enjoying the still warm-ish weather (even if I realize how crazy it is).

Hello! My legs finally feel almost normal today. My calves are still a little tight, but not too bad. Did some actual exercise and even jogged with the pups, so I'll probably get back to easy running tomorrow morning. It is still warm enough for mornings, even though it gets darker and darker.

I need to acquire eggs today. I usually have quite a few, but I didn't get to the farmer's market on Sat. and then forgot them at the grocery store. We go through eggs like crazy. Right now, I've got homemade chicken stock and have been making egg drop soup. It's real good.

Monday: Jason has an eye exam appointment, so I will be driving him this morning.

Another nice day, but cool. Itís fall, so thatís all right.

Lots of phone calls to make, so will be a phone day, I guess.

HUGS and have a marvelous Monday.

Melissa: You had literally a run-around weekend! Good for you.

Yes, busy on the home front. But things are falling into place, so that's most important.

HUGS

Sleep is good, with all you got going on!

I spent all day Saturday walking and running, in fact, I put in 26.24 miles, so it was kind of a marathon weekend! I did 12-15 of those with friends, so that was nice, and we were really chill on the pace, lots of walking. My calves will probably hurt for another two days. I'm glad I did it though!

Back to another busy week at work, where I continue to be behind on everything. Oh well, at least I'm used to it!

Saturday: Zoom breakfast. Did get take out.

Yesterday the Dr. called while we were driving home (cell phone, of course). Lymph nodes clear. One of 3 nodules malignant. Early stage cancer. Now, is going to consult w/colleagues about treatment plan. It goes before the tumor board, too. So, now the call on the 7th will just be confirmation of treatment plans.

So we head back up to Mayo on 01 November for Jasí spinal surgery on the 4th.

Blessings

Oct 7th is a long time! Yikes. Continuing my good thoughts your way.

Carmen - I have all kinds of pain (fibromyalgia), and have essentially been eating anti-inflammatory (no sugar, no grains, high nutrient, plus some extras) for about 18 months now, except I do keep a low level of dairy, it doesn't seem to bother me, but it does for others, and I have not yet made an attempt to eliminate nightshades, but I may play with that this winter once I'm out of local tomatoes and peppers. I also take tumeric and coconut oil daily. Although my new best friend is CBD balm.

I've been on an online conference most of yesterday and again most of today, so that's a little crazy, but I'm enjoying it. It is faculty from all the community colleges across NY, so cool stuff.

Thursday: Have to be out the door early this morning for the 8 am biopsy appointment. Praying. Not much sleep last night but . . . honestly, Jason is being very positive about this, and I am trying to be strong for him. Will hopefully know more later.

Well, back from the biopsy. All went well. Jas is doing fine. No pain. Tired, though. ME, TOO! We wonít know results til 07 OCTOBER. Seems like an eternity. But, reality is, the surgeon is certain itís cancer. Itís just knowing grade level and type of cell. Then the treatment (starting w/surgery) will progress The biggest concern is the lymph nodes. That will determine the aggressiveness of the surgery Ė removal of the nodules only, the right lobe where the nodules are or the entire thyroid. We shall see.

HUGS and prayers appreciated.

Carmen: I hope that the anit-inflammatory diet helps! I've heard good about it.

Joint pain is frustrating me so much everyday. To work with all the situation around this pains I had consult a nutritionist that specializes in diabetes and arthritis nutritional plans. She had prescribe an anti-inflammatory diet which I will be trying through the month to see who it helps. Also I am starting a 5 minutes stretching my joints routine everyday with menthol rubs to see if that helps also. I want to find a healthy, positive way to live with this condition if I have too. Also I will have some labs run on Saturday and next an anointment with the Dr. I am looking forward to find some answer.

There's nothing wrong with using the word "diet". It comes from the Greek word "diaita", meaning way of life. So to lose weight and keep it off we need to change our way of life.
