It's Friday. What are you and your MS doing tonight?











Do you remember when Friday night was time for celebrations? End of the school week, or work week?
Girls night out?
Movie dates?
Clubbing?

Yeah, me too.


Even if I wasn't going out on the town, I had plans. Maybe I planned to visit a friend or order take out to keep me company while I pampered myself with a manicure.
Now I can't even hold the brush steady to apply the nail polish.

Do you remember when you looked forward all week to getting all dolled up and wearing that new outfit?
Now I just want to get into those jammies and veg out on the couch.


Do you remember when a good book was all you needed for a Friday night and you could read for hours?
Now I can't hold the durn thing still enough to read the print without getting sea-sick.

Do you remember when you and your sweetie would just curl up together and watch a Friday night movie?
Now, if we don't get started by 8 o'clock I will be snoring in the back ground.

So, what are you and your MS doing this Friday evening?

Have a good weekend.

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.
