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.

2/20/17 - Disgusting

Is that click bait or what?

So I was just watching Big Bang and the most disgusting commercial came on. It is for "Smart Swab". According to the disgusting commercial you stick this gadget in your ear and pull out your ear wax. Seriously, the most disgusting thing I've seen on a commercial.

You can see the commercial here.

Bodily functions should NOT be used in a commercial.

Ok, that's my rant for this evening, carry on.

1/26/17 - I'm back!

I am back from San Antonio.  Meghan was a wonderful hostess and itinerary planner.  We had a great time visiting the sites around San Antonio and beyond.

I don't know if it was the lower humidity or being in a southern location but I didn't wake up hurting there.  We were able to walk a lot and enjoy ourselves.  Now that I'm in the great white north I'm back to pain and torture.  MS doesn't suck as bad in SATX.  Meghan does NOT want me moving there, even though I tried to coerce her into letting her Mama move in. 

Me and my girl

She took me to my Mecca

The weather was wonderful
More pictures later on and more of our itinerary.  I've got some unpacking to do.

Love y'all.  Image result for kissing lips

1/15/17 - Miss me?

Did you miss me yesterday?  David and I went to Walmart in the morning and I was wiped out.  This cough is driving me mad.  Nothing I take works.  I'm praying it will be gone by Wednesday.  I have an early flight (what was I thinking?) leaving BWI at 8:30am.  I can hardly wait.

Today I am in the basement doing laundry.  Meghan asked me yesterday if I was packed.  I laughed.  She must have been away from Mama long enough to forget, I'm a procrastinator.  I used to be an amateur-crastinator but now I'm a pro.

Here I sit in the basement.
Kristin has a horrible cough as well.  I wish she were going with me.  She could use a vacation too.  I know how hard it is to have little kids when you are sick.  Yuck!

Love y'all.  I don't know how much I'll be posting over my vacation.  I'm not taking my laptop.

1/13/17 - Itinerary update

Meghan and I are going to see Mark Chestnutt!!

That's the music her Daddy and I would go boot scootin' to along with Barbara and Dave.

I asked her if I should bring my dancing boots or if it would look goofy.  She said "This is Texas".  So dancing boots are getting packed or worn.
