Spring Break Hell

Sooooo.... I spent over 30 minutes on the phone with my favorite hardware store to bash this morning trying to find a standard sized sink that really will fit in the standard sized hole in my almost installed counter top, only to learn that the damaged sink I exchanged yesterday for a standard sized replacement that did NOT fit in the standard sized hole in my almost installed counter top. After procuring a nice price reduction in the damaged sink I prepared to return to the store but then was told that the damaged sink had been destroyed that morning since it was damaged.
REALLY?
No. I believe that the damaged sink was taken home by someone else for a discounted price. But, I am not going to impose my conspiracy theory mindset on innocent store employees.
Instead, I traveled to the store to be told that they had nothing to address my situation. The computer system was not working and locating a new sink was going to be a challenge. Hello! Why do we need a computer system to locate an item that could easily be found by visiting the storage room? But, I won't get on my technology soapbox.
 I am just worn out on the whole kitchen remake. I know that it will all work out eventually and I truly am grateful for the little quirks like the amazingly discounted sink that was finally located in PA. It won't be delivered until mid-week, but a visit to the local thrift shop helped me stock up on paper/plastic eating utensils until I can wash dishes again.
This has become a ramble fest and all about the negative aspects of my day.
Looking at the bright side: Operation Pandora's Box is now available on Amazon and will be Kindle ready in a few hours.
I cannot believe that I have authored and published THREE books. That's awesome with or without a kitchen sink.

MS Awareness Month: The Letter K

K is for keeping up with Jones's. 
Get rid of this philosophy RIGHT NOW. You are special. You are unique. You are a Warrior. You are a Super Star. MS does not define you. 

We have enough on our plates without worrying about without the rest of the coming and goings in our neighborhood, church, community, family. So what if Bubba got a new ski boat or Nibby Neighbor Nancy is planning - loudly - her spring cruise. I celebrate daily getting out of bed. No, I am not downplaying the excitement surrounding these happy moments in the lives of those folks we know. As MS Warriors, we sometimes need to remember that life hold more bonuses than money can buy.

This morning I am reminded that spring is on its way. Sure, I saw the news and I am well aware of the snow storm that promises to pelt our country in a few hours. I am ready. Milk in the fridge. Bread in the pantry. Flashlights battered up. But, behind that storm is spring and my favorite scent of all times: lilac. Don't ya just love t…

The N of MS.

N is for not allowing MS to win. This easy. Refer to A-M and O-Z.

As MS Warriors it is our job, our responsibility, and our mission to provide information, support, insight, and understanding to this ridiculous disease.

#WeAreStrongerThanMS

When I say we need to provide information, I am not just talking about clinical research and statistics. If you are living with MS or are close to someone with the MonSter, you have more information than can be found on the internet. YOU are the expert. YOU are the prime resource for what's what in this crazy land of MS. You experience(s) is invaluable.

Supporting the fight against MS wears many hats. Sure, you can make a monetary donation, but that is not always feasible in this tight-budget minded world. I am definitely preaching to the choir here. As a retired school teacher, I am facing quite a few unplanned expenses. No, money is not the only way, or necessarily the best way to offer assist…

This Writer's Euphoric Journey

It is November and that means National Novel Writing Month. I participate every year. As always, I am behind on my writing goal for the month: WRITE 50,000 WORDS  IN 30 DAYS. 

With only two days to go, I still need 10,000 to finish. 

So...I will see you here again on Wednesday or at the end of my journey of 50,000 words. Until then, breathe.
