High Five Friday #21
Gosh, doesn’t it feel good hearing that it is Friday?
Even though Monday was a long weekend and this week literally flew by due to my little getaway, I am relieved to hear that it is Friday. I suppose it is just because I like making you all feel god about yourselves 😉
So, without further a do, let’s get this High Five Friday celebration started! 🙂
Sloane is giving herself a high five this week for a huge accomplishment that is allowing her to take part in a once in a life time experience:
“I’ve been planning a 6 week trip to Peru for several months now (studying spanish, living with a family, hiking the Inca Trail, and other awesome stuff!). A month ago, when I got sent home from school because of my relapse, my doctor told me that I probably would not be able to go because I was too sick, and body would not be able to handle the 12000 ft. altitude. When I went for a check-up this week, however, he told me that my weight has stabilized, my blood pressure is at a much healthier level, and I’ve raised my iron, electrolyte, and potassium to a level where he felt comfortable allowing me to go!!!!
I can hardly believe it…it took a LOT of hard work, and being away for 6 weeks in a foreign country will be a huge challenge, but it also is the opportunity of a lifetime, and I don’t want to spend it worrying about food/weight.”
Meg is giving herself a high five this week because she “got a 100% on my Microsoft Word exam for my computer skills class!”

My high five this week is going to be for driving two hours by myself to visit my Grandma 🙂 I don’t really like driving, so I was always nervous to drive a longer distance by myself; however, I pushed my anxiety aside and did it 🙂 I am so glad I did too because I had a wonderful visit with my Grandma and Lils!
High five to Meg growing up! 😉
