5/19/17 - I know!

It's been a while, such is life. I've been busy with my life. Some days that means resting, some days I'm busy outside.  Anyway, I saw this today and thought it too controversial for Facebook but I believe it.

3/20/17 - So many things...

I talked to my Aunt D this morning.  My Uncle Bill passed away in January; he was her hero, soul mate and love of her life for 58 years, 56 of those years married.  Uncle Bill was like a second father to me.  Aunt D is doing good, she is picking up the pieces of her broken heart and trying to settle into a life without her best friend.  I can't imagine the pain that she, and my cousin Andrea and her family are going through.  I know how hard it is to lose your beloved Daddy as both Andrea and I were Daddy's girls.  I thank God for my Aunt D, she's the last member of the Toomey family and my last living Aunt.  I cherish our talks, even if they are only a checkup call.  Please pray for peace and comfort for my family.  May Uncle Bill's memory be a blessing.

Now on to the crazy stuff.  I think my daughter believes I'm crazy because I can feel germs on my hands.  I had a neurologist appointment last week, six-month checkup, and Kristin asked if I told him about my germy hands.  NO, I don't want him to send me to a shrink!  I already know I'm crazy, why confirm it?  When I was in Texas with Meghan she asked me when I went crazy (also talking about my germy hands) and I told her the first time I went crazy was April 1984 (when she was born) and the second time was December 1986 (when Kristin was born).  My daughters think highly of their Mother.  Heehee 😀

3/4/17 - Television advertisement

There are many, many, most, yeah most television (TV) advertisements (ADS) that gets under my skin.

This one because Big Moe Cason talks with food visibly in his mouth.

This one because it says "If you're morning is hell, then go to Taco Bell", I don't like that.

And any of these because they are on, ALL THE TIME!

And there are these two that I emailed the company of my dislike of the commercials because they use Christian Icons.

 

You may tell me I watch to much TV, that's true.  I go to bed early most every day because my body needs it.  I watch TV until I fall asleep.

I told David that there should be a button that you can scramble the reception of TVADS.

 Love y'all.

3/1/17 - #WeAreStrongerThanMS - March is MS awareness month

I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis (MS) December 2013.  The hashtag #WeAreStrongerThanMS is a bunch of horse hockey to me.  If I were stronger than MS I wouldn't have anything to complain about.  MS sucks!  Here is what Wiki has to say about MS.  Here is what I have to say about it.

Chronic Exhaustion
Chronic Pain
Burning
Tingling
Numbness
Blurred vision
Heat intolerant
Depression
Mood swings
Muscles weak
Muscle spasms
Decision making
Problems talking (stop laughing!)
Anger issues
Uhthoff's phenomenon
Concentration
Procrastination

I could keep going but I think you've got the picture.

I was going to list the things I'm giving up for Lent.  Maybe tomorrow.  It's a lot is "isms".
  love y'all.

2/23/17 - Chronic fatigue syndrome = I'm beat ALL the time

From Wikipedia:  Chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) is a medical condition characterized by long-term fatigue and other symptoms that limit a person's ability to carry out ordinary daily activities.[2][3] Quality of life of persons with CFS can be compromised.[4] 

And some clever person came up with "The Spoon Theory".  This analyzes your energy (spoons) and the tasks you have and then take spoons away for each task.

It's not my analogy but it could work in other ways.  For instance, take today; I wanted to cook dinner for David and I, I wanted to take a shower and then Kristin asked me to watch the kids while she goes to the doctor.  For me that is 3 major suckers of energy.  When I woke this morning I thought I just had the two...the shower and dinner.  I'm not complaining, I'm explaining.  A lot of days that I cook, we have our main meal at lunch time, around 1 pm.  This morning I woke up with very little energy, I guess I didn't sleep well.  Anyway, I went over with Cali to get her on the bus.  When I got back home I read for a while and then laid down for a while.  I got up around noonish and started dinner.  I had an easy meal of hamburger, gravy and noodles.  Easy peasy, right?  One thing down, a couple to go.  However, I know I won't have the energy to shower AND watch the kids so I've postponed the shower to tomorrow, after all, tomorrow is another day.  I'm already borrowing time from tomorrow.

Does any of this make sense to you?  I'm irritate that I'm exhausted.  I know this isn't well written, my brain is tired too.
