Weekend Update Blog Hop

I am linking up with Sami and Leeann for this weeks edition of Weekend Update!!  You should link up too and meet some new friends!!

This weekend I didn't do a lot.  I stayed in all weekend and watched old movies and shows that I had dvr'd.  I watched the ones that Chad doesn't really care to watch ie Intervention, Hoarders, RHWBH, and Here Comes Honey Boo Boo.  I love that show.  They act like they genuinely love each other. 

My mom came over some this weekend and we had a good time together.  She comes in and the furkids just go crazy trying to see who can get her attention first.  Just like human kids.

I started reading a different book "Gone Girl" by Gillian Flynn.  I hope it is good.  I've heard mixed reviews on it.

I can't wait to give Chad his present tomorrow.  Nothing big, it's just that he has no idea.

I hope everyone has a Merry Christmas!!!

Pulmonary Rehabilitation

Today I went to pulmonary rehab this morning.  I started going again about a month ago.  I did 17 mins. of cardio (which is good for me) so I was proud of myself.  I usually do anywhere from 10-15 mins.  My oxygen saturation was even staying up even though I am on 2 liters of O2.  It had been dropping down into the 80 with the 2 liters but now its staying up there in the upper 90s.  I am really wanting to get my lung function built back up where I don't have to wear the oxygen anymore.  It's not really my lung function that is down it is the small airways that are closing off.  I still would like to get off of the oxygen all the time.  At least I can still get out and do things. 

I am so excited about tomorrow.  It's my 35th birthday!!! Yay!!!  Chad, my mom, and I are going to go out to eat to celebrate and then come home and have cookie cake from Great American Cookie Co.  YUM!!!  We also got a  movie (That's My Boy)to watch tomorrow.


I got a Tea Chest from my cousin, because I love to drink tea (hot or cold).

I got some lounge pants from Chad (because that is what I spend most of my days in).  I also got some camera stuff from my mom.  I love my camera.  I hope everyone has a wonderful day tomorrow.  I will not be posting tomorrow to honor those who lost their lives in Newtown, CT.

Weekend Update

I am linking up with Leeann and Sami for this weeks edition of weekend update.

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend.  I had a great weekend.  I didn't get out much this weekend but I did do some shopping on the internet of course.  Just about everywhere is giving free shipping with a certain amount purchased.

I am still on the look out for a good planner.  Do any of you have any suggestions?  I would love to hear them.

Yesterday was kind of a hard day for me.  It was my dads birthday.  He would have been 64 years old.  He passed away in February 2010.  They say it gets easier with each day but I still think of him all the time and miss him like crazy.  I will always be a daddy's girl!!!  I Love You Dad!!!
