A Fairly Good Week

Hey Friends!
It's been a busy week - I spent time away from home and away from the doctor's office, hard to believe I know. It started Tuesday with a day at work. Actually only about 4 hours spent at the store helping out with a project but it seemed like a full day.

Now on to the reason for the title to this blog posting - Jessie and I had a great invitation this week from our friends Jerry and Anna. Jerry offered to push my formerly-fat-rear-end around the State Fair in a wheelchair for a day. What a tremendous offer! So Friday we met them in the handicap parking area and got to tour some of the fair. Unfortunately the weather wasn't the most cooperative-it was in the 90's with similar humidity so we spent a large chunk of time in the air conditioned buildings studying the ginsu knives and cookware offered by eager vendors. No sales here though! So a special thank you to Jerry & Anna - I never would have gone to the fair without you!

Another exciting event this week was Jessie's family reunion on Saturday. The maternal side of her family does an a good job holding an annual reunion in Waupaca. However I admit even after 30 odd years of attending this event I forget more names than I retain. And how many more kids get added every year? It's just too much to keep track of. Anyway, we enjoyed catching up with the people I do remember and talk to more than once a year. It was relaxing because we drove up Saturday (another stinky hot & humid day), stayed overnight, and drove back today.

As far as the health update portion of this blog post it's been so-so. Definitely still better than last month but I've been struggling with a few episodes of nausea again. I still don't have a handle on why it happens or what triggers it but I've started keeping notes on what I feed myself, the amount, and the speed. I'm hoping to discern some pattern soon.

Thanks for checking n on me again - I really appreciate your support. Thank you for the prayers and love sent my way.

Be Well - Be Blessed!
