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?

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.
