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.

Riding the MS broom

Do you ever feel like the ultimate witchy woman? That is actually a rhetorical question because I know you do. We all do whether we mean it or not. And guess what? We have a right to feel that way. Our brand of broom is a touch one to ride. That is why I truly believe that our supreme master, who ever/whatever that may be, doesn't throw us more than we can catch.

MSers (I read recently that this is an inappropriate way in which to refer to individuals with multiple sclerosis. The source of this judgement obliviously does not live with the disease. MS Warriors are far less offended by such a label than that.) are strong individuals who thrive on finding a purpose, a solution, a balance.

We are dependent on our co-pilot Common Sense. Care Givers are a beautiful addition to our lives, but many MSers (I did it again!) are not fortunate to have someone to clean our broom and dust off the daily spider webs that clutter the  cognitive mess of our brains. I learned that long before MS becam…

Yoga Burn gives new incentive to my morning routine.

I am not one much for online shopping indulgences, but a couple of weeks ago I allowed myself the rare treat of purchasing the Yoga Burn program advertised on Face Book. This morning I completed week one of the monthly scheduled routine and I even took time to meditate under the guidance of Yoga instructor Zoe Bray Cotton.

Laugh if you must, but I really, really, enjoyed the meditation exercise. I realize this is a solitary activity and I will never practice this in front of husband and/or son. 

I felt wonderful afterword, though. So at peace and relaxed. I always knew I was a Zen Goddess at heart.

What I really love about this program is that it "is a comprehensive online yoga course directed toward women only."  The older I get, the more I appreciate anything to do with "for women only". Weird, huh?

Zoe' voice is so very soft and inviting. As she leads me through my morning poses, I really feel as though she is my new morning bestie. Of course, I have only comple…

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.
