I Made It

Hooray! Its finely here! The first day of summer break.. We go back a week earlier next year so this break will be slightly shorter, but I am not complaining. I have several goals for this summer. They include:

Finish the Themed Book Challenge

Get up at the same time I do when I go to work. Having waking and retiring times is good for the body…so I hear.

Write, write, write!

Plan for 1st semester of the coming school year

Caulk and paint the molding in the dining room


Start a compost bin

Eat healthier. I have already started this (along with a detox and acupuncture) in my effort to deal with my fibroids and for better overall health. Just using Evening Primrose Oil and increasing my Omega- 3 intake has eliminated my anemia and given me pain free periods for the past year and a half. Now it is the bulk (size) that I am dealing with. I know nothing will make them go away completely, but I don’t want any more growth, and a reduction in size would be nice. I know of cases where it has happened. I also know that every case is different.

Start saving more. Considering the price of gas, food, and everything else, this will be a challenge.

Broaden the borders of my life. In other words, I am open to more socializing, romance, and kayaking ;)

Oh yes, and give the house a thorough cleaning.

I guess you could say I have plans for the summer but being the procrastinator that I am, it will be interesting to see what I accomplish. the work to be done is a given. Having a good time is a choice. I plan to have a great summer!


  1. Good luck with the fibroid. I waited and waited and eventually had to have it removed. I never realized how bad I felt until I started feeling good after the surgery.

  2. I just got a another OB/GYN opinion and this one makes more sense to me. He explained the x-rays I've been hanging on to, explained that we do not have to take surgical action right now, told me what to look for as indicators that surgery is the only option, and corrected some of the false information I had by given by the PA in my doctor's office regarding birth control. He performs many cutting edge procedures and is up on the latest research. I felt greatly relieved. He said he would be more than happy to have me as a patient, but was willing to give me the name of a local doctor he would recommend if I didn't want to drive the hour and ten minutes to see him. Yes, I used quite a bit of gas to get there, but it was worth it.
