Friendly Friday Update

Hello friends!

Things have been chaos the past couple of weeks. Lets see, where to begin… I guess I will do my old school way of breaking it down into the “good, bad & ugly” format. Here we go!

The Good

  • I will be smoke free for 1 year this month! YESSS!!
  • I completed the basic motorcycle class, in order to get my waiver to obtain my license! I am so excited, I do not do much for me per se and this is all – me me me! I cannot wait to get out there, I think I may check out a bike this weekend too. We shall see how it goes! *looking at you Triumph*
  • This year’s cervical biopsy results came back normal yesterday.

The Bad

  • Received an abnormal pap smear – which is why I had the colposcopy/biopsy last week.
  • I miss the “official” challenges on WordPress. However, Cee has done a great job of compiling current challenges. I need to look into them.
  • It has been raging hot over the past couple weeks. Like 90-100 degrees and I am more of a cozy 75 and sunny, so I have been hibernating as much as possible. My motorcycle course at Harley Davidson was last weekend though. Nothing like pushing around a 500lb bike in 90+ degree weather… with a full face helmet, long sleeves, jeans and boots. The plus side (outside of passing) is – I believe I lost weight haha.
  • Dog fur. Ah yes, that time of the year of shedding all the fluff, it is everywhere! I am vacuuming my evenings away, debating on vacuuming said dogs, me and every upholstered thing in my home.
  • Allergies.
  • Home upkeep – turns out grass can grow like a champ in your gravel driveway hahaha. Also, my flowers are sad. Basically, I am a terrible home owner :D.

    The Ugly 

  • Motorcycle statistics. I am hoping my 20 years of dirt biking will help me here.
  • I think I need to mulch this weekend…
  • Mosquitos have attacked me and I am itching like a crazy person with raging welts that I cannot leave alone. YAY!

Really not too much going on besides that added stress of abnormal health tests and having additional testings. I hope everyone had a safe 4th of July (if you celebrated) and have a wonderful weekend.

Tell me things. Anything! Motorcycle/family/hobbies/travels/fun facts/weekend plans!?

Until next time,

    Congrats on being smoke free! We Michiganders have also been suffering with the heat, but are getting a break this weekend, which means road trip to northern Mich. Woo-hoo! Now, about your fave movie, “The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly” 😉 It actually had a great musical score, even if you don’t really like the movie. Try youtube sometime: the good bad ugly ecstasy of gold. plus, the guy who wrote the music had a great name…ennio morricone. 🙂

    How’d you like the motorcycle class? I liked mine. Heat sucks when you can’t get out of it or unprepared. I’m in it a lot. I start by drinking 16 oz. of water, a big hat, and sun screen. Mosquitos love me, but I don’t love them. Congrats on being smoke free. I grew up in a smoking household. My mom won’t quit, nor will my brother. I wish they would. Did you know a cluster of butterflies is called a kaleidoscope? Enjoy your weekend.

      I loved my moto class! It was very helpful and I definitely feel better – when I get that motorcycle and head out in the world haha. I am so happy that you enjoyed yours as well 🙂

    God I hate mosquitos. There is no other insect that makes me as angry. They are just tiny nemesis insects; the only living creatures I feel okay trying to kill because IT’S THEM OR ME.

    Well done on the continuing bike adventure! I’m excited for you!
