Where to start?

I have so much to do today I don't know where to start.

I guess I shouldn't say that because I have been working on my list since about 8 am.
I am making progress but I want it all done already.

Truth be told I want to park myself on the couch and watch the Olympics.

In the past couple of days Mark & I have been doing inventory on thebusiness. Needless to say our numbers didn't match.
I don't always remember to take something out of inventory when I ell it so we had some wholes in our inventory. Our screenprinter loves us this week. haha !
I also have a new design in process so a new shirt will be coming out shortly. Stay tuned for what it will say.

I added a fabulous new emergency history book to my website. It was designed by a friend of mine and is great to have in the house in case of emergency. It will tell the EMT and dr's what they need to know about your medical condition if you are unable to speak for yourself.

I also the 2010 MSF Cruise for a Cause bracelet to the site. This cruise goes to Alaska so we added a gold charm of 2010, a cruise ship and a whale.
Info on the cruise itself can be found by going to www.msfocus.org.

Well I am off to finish my to do list. Honestly when has anyone actually finished their to do list.

Have a great day everybody

Let's talk MS

The past week my ad in the MSFocus magazine came out.

This always generates phone calls, orders, catalog requests, etc.

This morning after talking to a very nice woman I realized that there is such a need for us to talk to each other. Support groups, although they have good intentions, don't always work.

In my previous support group we always had a few Negative Nellies who dominated the conversation. Sound familiar?

I am on facebook and I jokingly say I run an online support group.

We need someone to talk to. These are the kinds of programs MS organizations should have. Someone who can talk to us on the phone. Let's face it it is easier to talk to someone on the phone then in person.

I am glad people feel they can talk to me and I am always going to be there for them but I should the organizations set up to help us with MS need to revaluate their prpgrams and start listening to the people. Oh no I have gotten political on you. haha !

In the mean time, if you need to talk please email me, friend me on facebook, or call me. I will listen. I have been there and feeling alone is NOT the answer.

Have a great day everybody.

where's the snow plow?

It is snowing today. Actually it snowed all day yesterday and they expect it will snow all day today. We don't have tons of snow but I ask " where is the snow plow?"
Our road is a disaster. It's not like its the "emergency route" for the hospital or something. Oh wait, I believe it is or at least thats what thesigns say that line the street.

I would hate to be that pregant woman being driven to the hospital by my husband with roads that look like these. She might just have that baby on my front porch. LOL

Hopefully the city will do something shortly.

Yesterday I had a crazy problem with Paypal. They process the payments for my our business TheMSShoppe.com. After being transferred to numerous people I felt like I had spoken to everybody in the Phillipines. I finally got a woman from Nebraska who was able to semi solve my problem. A flaw in their system but we worked it out.
I have a neighbor doing my Post Office run for me today.

Had a good nights sleep but I feel like I could put my head down and go right back to sleep. Whats that about? I may have to have a cup of coffee.

Hope everyone is having a great life. I can't wait for our upcoming vacation. I need something to read. Anybody read anything good recently?

Have a great day everybody

good morning everybody

It's snowing lightly again today. It is the finest snow I have ever seen. A beautiful snow except I haveto venture out today in it so I am not 100 % loving the snow today.

Yesterday I had a bad fall. Just finished taking the dogs out. While closing the outside door I lost my balance ( in the mud room) and flew across the very tiny room. The snowshovels went flying. The broom fell off its hook. The room is small ( as most of older homes mud rooms are) and I touched all four walls at once. Ouch ! Needless to say I have bruises allllllll over.

Nothing broke. The dogs ran when they heard the commotion. As I laid on the floor Noelle first arrived on the scene. Sniffing at me. Although she hates the white fuzzy hat I wear when I take them out she came overto me and was very reassuring. Ripley, as he has done, with other falls lined himself up to me so I could use his back for balance. I didn't. but he just has this gift to offer his back.
I called Mark because I wanted him to know ( incase he couldn't reach me later). I did hit my head. But all in all it could have been worse. It was just one of those scary moments. I think I was feel over confident because I was walking so well.

I hope today is better. I don't need any more bruises.

Have a great day everybody. Tonight is date night and I can hardly see what he comes up with.

I'm baaaack

I feel like I have fallen off the face of the earth lately. Sooooo busy. So much to do.

I think I am finally caught up. Only a few things left on my urgent to do list and then I'll put together a new list. hehe !

Had a big sale going on and everybody was so supportive. We really appreciate your support and business. I can only donate to MSF and NMSS if people order.

We also had a contest for a tshirt of your choice. I emailed the winner of the shirt and then decided I would also give away a MS bear so I emailed her also.

Coming up shortly I will be looking for a few good ideas for a new shirt saying. Everybody put their thinking caps on cause I know you guys are so creative and can come up with the greatest saying to wear plastered across your chest.

We woke up to a fresh blanket of snow today and it has been snowing all day. Up to this point we had grass in the backyard. The dogs were confused. Today they ran around like crazys again. Came in with snow all over their noses.

Have a great day everybody. I promise not to neglect my blog anymore.
