Happy American Thanksgiving!

Once again, I must apologize for not keeping my blog as up-to-date as I had wished I was going to. Alot of things have been going on since my last post!
First of all, I have returned to my job! It been almost 3 weeks now, and everything is going great. I have been getting back into the routine, and feeling good. I do miss hanging out with Michelle and some of the shows we were getting used to watching during the day. But it is nice to get back to my job. I still need to strengthen my back, as it gets pretty sore by the end of the week, but I think it's getting better. If it doesn't stop hurting soon, I will be seeing my Oncologist and will talk to her about some sort of rehab. I wish we had a hot tub!
...
We just had an amazing weekend, when Mom, Brother Rick, Donna, Alicia and Emma came to Traverse City for a great visit! It truly was great seeing them all. We decided to have our Thanksgiving dinner on Saturday since they would be here and it was a super get together. Turkey, ham, green bean casserole, mashed potatoes, etc...yumm.
Plus Rick brought the Toronto Argo Jersey from the game I was named Honorary Captain. It is a great jersey! I am very proud to have been a part of a great season along with the Argo's. Thank you once again Rich, and Rachelle for all of your support!
...
Speaking of the Argo's, their season ended this past Sunday. They had a great streak going, only needing one more win to go to the Grey Cup Championship. But unfortunately lost to Winnepeg.
I have become one of their greatest fans this season and hope to someday get back to see them play in person with Michelle and the girls. It still amazes me what the Argos (Rich and Rachelle) have done t0 help me get thru this past few months. Thanks. We will go all the way next year!
...
We found out this week, that we will have a few days to get back to Bobcaygeon, visit with Mom, family and friends around Christmas this year. It's been so long since being back. With tackling my cancer, it has just been impossible to get back. We cannot wait, not only to visit everyone, but to also go say goodbye to our old property, and finally get to see Mom's new house!
...
2 more days until Thanksgiving here in the States. The girls are off, Wed.,Thur., and Friday!
We will be watching Detroit and Green Bay play football and I will be making a lasagna for and afternoon dinner as both Jessie and Erica are having "boy"friends over to meet Michelle and I. Should be a fun day.
...
Once again, thank you all for checking in to see how things are going. It makes me feel great knowing we have so many people sending us there best wishes.
On a sad note, our Aunt Janet (my Dad's sister) past away 3 weeks ago. She was also battling cancer, and unfortunately the cancer took away one of my greatest inspirations. She continued to send me advise, encouragement and overall support. One of our greatest gifts I received was an ice crusher she sent me by purolator, when I briefly mentioned how ice was so nice to chew on when I was released from the hospital after my surgery. She knew exactly what I meant, got online and from Denmark had one sent to me. She will forever be missed.
...
Ok, I am off to bed.
I will once again try my best to keep everyone updated. I guess if I don't leave an update, please assume I am having a great day! But, I will try to get on here.
Have a wonderful week! 35 more sleeps until Christmas!!
Love CMJE
