I'd like to thank...

All those who supported me through the rough times! HAHAHAHAHAHA

I just received my first blog award! WOO HOO!! Here it is....



YEAH!!! I love it!! I'm supposed to then pass along the prestige to 10 of the people's blogs that have Attitude! WOO HOO! So, considering how I'm just an infant in this wide world web I haven't
really established long roots in this world but I do have 11 over to that side bar over there - There's the blog portion of the ActiveMSers website that's pretty cool! And, my buddy's blog from Texas to Tennesse is soooo totally rockin' and has nothing to do with MS - unless she's talking about me or some random musings...

Anyways, thank you Lisa over at Brass and Ivory - it's coming right back atcha! So, here's the rules...

* Put the logo on your blog or post.
* Nominate at least 10 blogs which show great Attitude and/or Gratitude!
* Be sure to link to your nominees within your post.
* Let them know that they have received this award by commenting on their blog.
* Share the love and link to this post and to the person from whom you received your award.


Okey dokes - Had a great weekend! Went and saw Jeff Dunham in concert last night - hilarious!! Needed to laugh out loud like that and it was sooooo great! It was new material and very funny! Seriously, google the name and LUAO!!! Had the house all to ourselves for the first time since Ike hit.... 6 weeks ago now. My partner's parents are probably going to be staying with us until the end of this month. They now have water but no power or gas at the beach house. It's still very cool though.. Barely notice they're here and it was actually very quiet without them...

Fixed the fence so that we can let the dogs outside without them going cavorting through the drainage ditch after tunneling through the orange plastic fencing! Amazing what a little lattice work can do to block pups inside the yard! They liked the beautiful weather this weekend as well - having the door open to let them roam in and out.

By the way, it was a great MS weekend as well. My MS has actually been acting very well - I think it's being gracious and letting my back have all the fun!! AHAHAAHA Seriously, am taking the pain meds and they are working out. I just don't want to become Dr. House - I love that show because he would be exactly the type of person I would never hang out with... That's exactly what I do not want to become. Do you love him on TV? Yes. Do you understand he's a good guy and is just in extreme pain at the end of the shows? Yes. But he's a character that none of us really want to become... addicted to pain meds to keep himself emotionally numb to not add to the physical pain he experiences everyday. He figures he goes through enough physical pain that he does not want to open himself open to any emotional pain...

I know that I'm nowhere close to being anywhere near to that type of person... but it's still a scary thought. Course, my doc didn't give me near enough of them to start me down that path. I was told to continue with PT and call him back in a couple of weeks. Thanks for putting up with the whining about the pain... I'm getting my reactions to it under control. That's one of the biggest lessons from MS that I'm continually learning - adaptation. My baseline keeps getting adjusted due to the dagnabbit disease and I'm having to make the adjustments to fit it into my life. What I don't want to have happen is to have my life fit into it... I know it may come down to point where that has to happen, but I can still make it a very small part of it. Besides, I was always the type that had to rearrange the furniture in my bedroom every couple of months growing up... I guess this is the big guy's (or gal's) way of having a sense of humor... Let's see how she'll rearrange this... Chuckling ensues and I get to establish a new norm... Good think I like irony!!!

By the way, I'm sorta getting sick of continually typing MS.... I'm going to try and think of a new name for it... something not too complicated but not totally vulgar (cuz I only want to use MFMS when it's really called for!!!) I've seen some funny stuff on some other blogs and I appreciate their names... Just warning you now that I see a potential theme for the next little bit - it's made it past the damaged neurons!!!

Your entry is all in "wing dings". (At least to me). I canad it :(

Abby said...

Congrats! I got my first one too--same award. Yay for us! Why are some of your posts done in wingdings?

MS. ME said...

Sorry about the wingdings gals! I accidentally highlighted that "font" and thought it was the one above it... I've hopefully corrected it!! And I'll be more careful about what I choose... stoopid shaky fingers!!
