Technology and I just don't get along!

I waste more time trying to use what is supposed to make life easier and adding to a stress level that is my MS goal to eliminate. Because I feel the need to step up to the plate and utilize the 21st Century opportunities before me, I finally erased the downloaded image on the front page of this blog, but I am now sadly disappointed in the current appearance. Recently Cher'ley Grogg asked me to host a blog entry of hers and I want it to look pretty on my post. Hopefully I will have things under control by the time  I post her request.
One thing I have learned about having MS (as with any other life altering condition) it is best NOT to waste time engaging in senseless activity when there is meaningful life to be living. Visit with family, call a friend, play with your children, converse with your pet, take a walk (physically or on the pages of a good book).
My routine this morning has been:
Talk to my computer.
Shake my fist at the computer.
Call computer bad names.
Ask computer for advice.
Play a round or two of Words of Wonder.
Stick out my tongue at computer.
Play a round of Words of Wonder.
Do 20 minutes of Yoga.
Stare at computer with  look I reserve for misbehaving children.
Play another round of Words of Wonder (I'm doing pretty well at this game.)
Pet my cat.
Pet my cat.
Pet my cat. (She won't leave me alone.)
Pet my computer and call it quits on blog transformation for today.

Sometimes we just need to be aware of our limitation. Right?

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.
