Had a wonderful day till....

Although the day started off badly with not being able to get out
of bed it improved greatly.
The dogs needed to go out but my legs were just not working. Especially
since our bedroom is upstairs. So I walked the hallway til they felt better
and I felt comfortable with the stairs.

I fed the dogs and went back to bed. I then exercised,ate breakfast and
slowly started to feel great.
I had so much energy I wore myself out. And then I had a second cup of coffee.

By early afternoon I wanted a nap. I think I did way too much. I always do
that when I feel good. Then I crash.

I didn't nap but I did take a time out and relax.

Talked to a few friends. Got another "nasty gram" from my DNA mother.
I was in way too good of a mood tolet evenher bother me.

Got a call from my dad. Very confusing situation. I  think my entire family
should be committed, starting with DNA Mom.

ATalked to mother in law later tonight. She always makes me feel so good.
Thanks Mom...

And just now I got another call about "lard ass", my obese brother in law who
can't understand if you don't have a job, deadbeat,stop buying stuff !! Duh !!
I gave everybody's phone number this time because it's time someone else
take his collection calls.

I'm not even going to let that bother me. I feel like Tony the tiger I feel great.

Have a great day everybody

Pay Attention

Yesterday as you may have heard President Obama was once again here
in Wisconsin. Our Senator is running for re election and struggling.

This would be the 4th visit by the President of the United States for this piece of sh*t
senator. OMG.
So at the same time another major manufacturer is threatening to leave
Wisconsin,. having major union problems too. A strike may take place this week.more
people out of work.

And where was our Senator? The same Senator who walked away from my husbands employer
when they were having problems. The same Senator who let everybody else deal with  the problem.

Both sides, democrats and republicans worked together to solve that problem. When I met with
our state Senator Randy Hopper, a truly honorable guy, last March we both agreed congress
could have learned so much about the way this was handled. Everybody worked together
to solve the problem. red, blue it didn't matter.

Last night was a dissapointment that this major manufacturer( who was so nearby ) was struggling and they were all in Madison. Sad Sad sad.

This is the first time I have ever had a political sign in my front yard. And I have three...
We need to get rid of Senator Feingold. You are a sad excuse for representing Wisconsin. 
I personally don't care if you are a democrat or a republican. Just pay attention to the problems
here at home.
Our unemployment in this state is awful.

Have a great day everybody

a nice thank you

Yesterday I recieved a thank you note in the mail.

I love sending them ( I'm a little old fashioned, I love snail mail)
but I rarely recieve them.

It was from the group that organized the NMSS event in Green Bay
a few weeks ago.
They thanked Mark and I by name for participating in the event.

Very nice finish to a wonderful event.

Thanks to you also. We had a nice time.

Have a great day everybody.

The MS Shoppe

Getting a little nippy out there.

I do the MS Walk Every Day sweatshirts went on sale today and so did the
Multiple smiles MS Hug bear.

Please check them out at

Family Day at the Zoo

On Saturday Mark and I had a table for the business at the National MS Society's
Family day at the zoo in Milwaukee.

It was a cold rainy day and yes we were uncovered (except those nasty tree's that kept
dripping on everybody ) It was okay because we really only had one downpour.
Of course we weren't at the table at the time ( someone had to go to the bathroom) so the
guys at the next table grabbed our tarp and covered everything. Thanks
Adam and Andrew, the brain guys. They had a new MRI service and were giving out stress
balls shaped like brains. I love these guys.

Mark and I had a great time and enjoyed meeting some of our customers. One lady said she
showed up for the event just to meet us. I'm humbled by that and thanks so much

I think I picked up a little cold. Have the sniffles and a sore throat but I'm tough so I'll
keep going strong.

Sold lots of stuff. We had a great time. I slept 9 1/2 hours that night.

Thanks for inviting us NMSS to be  part of this wonderful event. The zoo in Milwaukee is
spectacular. To Ruth and Patty, our next door table friends, thanks for everything. It's a merry
go round, not a carasuel.

Thanks to Jeremy at NMSS for putting on such a wonderful event. And where's lunch?
Just kidding, Jeremy you did a fabulous job.

Have a great day everybody.

OMG what next?

In case you haven't heard, the White House crasher Salahi now claims she has MS.

WTF? Wasn't she wearing a long gown and stiletto heels in the infamous photo?
Is she really going to tell us real MS er's she can wear a heel like that, run all over town
creating havoc and still has the energy to pose for playboy.

And honestly is anybody out there skinny with MS? The disease makes you gain weight,
the drugs make you gain weight and the lack of activity makes you gain weight.

I'm thin but not skinny. I can and do out eat anybody. And  I like to eat.

This kind of nonsense should not be tolerated. Hopefully someone like the NMSS
will ask for a DR's confirmation. Who would lie about such a thing?
Oh wait, I think my mother pretended to have MS when I told her I had it.
I guess there are sicko's out there that would use it as a publicity stunt. 

Salahi, you are a piece of sh*t. I think you got your letters mixed up. I believe what you
have is a big case of BS not MS.

Have a great day everybody

I left the house...

Yesterday being Sept. 11 Anniversary I found myself in my usual funk.
Not as bad as years past but still I get into a zone I can't seem to shake.

As some of you know, I had a "front row seat" on Sept. 11.

I don't talk about it much  and tried to yesterday before I completely lost
it. (sorry Mary and Kim) .
It is a day that affects us all but I really can't explain my feelings.
Sometimes I feel like it is post traumatic stress syndrom.

Last year was the first time in 9 years I actually left the house. Okay
so I got my nails done but I left the house.
This year I was asked to participate in the NMSS event and not thinking it
through very carefully I said yes.

I found myself really stressed and anxious in the crowded room so I sat
with Mark outside the room.

I am proud of myself for leaving the house and taking on a big event like
the one I did.
Each year it  will get easier ( or so they say). I am not sure I will ever enjoy
fireworks again (loud noise scare me now). I can deal with sirens again (which
is good because we  live a few blocks from the hospital) 
Helicopters still bother me (flight for life ) and certain smells (which I dont
really want to share what I had to smell that day)

I will go forward and deal the best I can. God Bless America and please
don't ever forget 9/11.
Have a great day everybody.

ugly politics

Our primary is next week and things here are getting a little ugly.

President Obama has been to Wisconsin 3 times in the past 2 months
because they are all afraid they will lose their senate seat.

He talked about our train to nowhere. I am all for a train in Wisconsin but
how about from Green Bay to Milwaukee. Maybe a stop in my town?
I would ride it   all the time. Go shopping in Green Bay and go shopping
in Milwaukee.

Our Governor also is not running for re-election (thank god) so that election
is getting ugly too.

Every year it seems things get uglier and uglier for elections.

Unemployment in this State is one of the  highest  in the country.
The street we live on is full of empty homes where people just walked away
after losing their jobs.
I really hope things get better in this country soon.

I'm not a political person but I'm tired of witnessing this country's downfall.

Should be an interesting next few days. I wonder just how much mud
they can sling at each other.

Have a great day everybody.
