Bahahaha you know this is true! There are no more presents to wrap because by now they’ve all been unwrapped. People are deciding if they should take down Christmas immediately or if they should wait and take down on New Year’s. The malls are still pretty crowded because people are doing returns and/or finding what they think are deals after the holiday. People in the work force are praying that their company will also give them the day before New Year’s off. Who doesn’t want a four day weekend?
Then you have people like me who can’t distinguish one day from the next. I still use an old-fashioned calendar to mark days off as they go so I don’t get lost. 😂 I would love to be able to blame this solely on multiple sclerosis, but I can’t. I mean I have become more scatterbrained but I’ve always been a little off. LMAO just ask people that have known me for years. Trust me they will tell you the truth. 🤔 I am not sure if that’s a good thing or a bad thing.
I think the five days between these two holidays are quite similar to the feeling you get when you’re sitting next to a stranger and you’re not really sure where to put your arm(s). You know that feeling… You don’t want to touch them but you also don’t wanna look standoffish or rude so you fiddle with your arms as you’re not sure how to hold them. What ever will you do…
And with that please remember to always have courage and be kind! 🖤
I had a great weekend! My step mom, who is more like a mother to me, and her husband came down on Saturday for our family Christmas. It was wonderful! I spent the first part of Saturday in my bed so we all camped out in my room and then when we were ready to eat, Roger got me up in my wheelchair and we actually ate our Christmas dinner at the table! You have no idea but that is a big deal. LOL The only issue was the fact that my Wheel-Chariot, even at its lowest position is still a bit high for the table. But thankfully I had my little tray so I got as close as I could to the table and used my tray for my food. She makes thee best mac & cheese ever and the best salad dressing. I was in heaven! It felt very nice to feel normal, whatever that is, for that day. 🖤 Last year my daughter hung a string of lights around the walls of my bedroom and they brought me a beautiful lighted Christmas wreath. My room looks so pretty at night now! Festive and fun.
I also got an amazing “train case“ for my make up. I subscribe to Boxy Charm, so I get a surprise box every month of make up and other fun things. It may seem frivolous or even stupid for me to do this because of the fact that I’m stuck in my bed, but for me it’s just fun and gives me something to do other than watching television. Although, the television is still on in the background. LOL Basically, it keeps me off the streets! 😂🤣
I hope everyone has a very safe and Happy All Hallows’ Eve!!
As for me, my back is killing me so I am going to sit in the dark in my room and watch scary movies. One of my favorite things to do. 👻
I’m a little bummed that I’m not able to put on make up or do anything this Halloween, but there will be others. Thankfully Snapchat has given me a few ways to do some make up. LMAO
Did I mention I love Halloween!
Be safe tonight and be mindful of others around you. And if teenagers show up at your door, give them candy! It’s much better that they’re doing something safe and fun then being out doing something not so safe and possibly getting into trouble. Childhood leaves us much too soon so let them be children for as long as possible. 🖤
And, if you have a black kitty keep them inside tonight. Humans can be very evil and black cats are targeted on Halloween. I think we all know that humans are the only monsters in this world.
Last but not least, an update on my MRI… They are working to get it done via outpatient so that I can be sedated to help with my pain during the MRI. I decided there’s no reason for me to be in that much pain to get a test so they need to work and help me. We have to be our own advocate and we need to speak up if something is not right for us. So that’s what I did!
To all who celebrate, please be safe today/tonight. Make sure to have a designated driver if you plan on drinking. It’s a fun day to celebrate, but I’m sure you and your loved ones want to make it home safe. I know that everyone else does as well.
The past few years I haven’t done the Halloween thing. Bums me out as Halloween is a favorite day for me. I used to always dress up and hand out candy. Scaring kids was and added plus for me. 😛
Tomorrow is going to be so exciting for me. My former nurse and now my BFF Don is having a pumpkin carving contest party at his home. I’M GOING TO DRESS UP!! It’s been so long since getting out my Halloween gear; dress, wigs, jewelry, makeup, etc. Steph and her crew are going, as well as my family. I can’t wait to meet Don’s friends and make some new friends in the process. It’s the little things in life that make so happy. I won’t be doing any carving myself, as knives and me don’t go together very well.
So, YAY for me!! I’m finally getting out and doing things again. Taking baby steps, or rolls. lol
NOT MY LEG!! Wrong gender. lol Just say no to Jr. High tube socks!! lmao
So the orthopedics office called and said these braces will be better for me to start with, due to the tightness of my tendons. These will help to stretch them out easier. I CAN work these bitches. First NO tube socks, no man legs, cute different colored laces, some fun cute socks, and my hot skinny calves! Maybe even some Swarovski crystals all over. Yeah baby!!
Hi my name is Tracy, and I’m a Candy Crush-aholic!
This game is highly addictive. Thanks to one of my favorite people, my stepmom, I’m addicted. I actually play a lot of games. They keep my mind occupied. When you’re stuck in bed most of the time, it’s good to have an outlet. And games are my thing. My neurologist says it’s good to play them as they keep your mind active. Well if that’s true, then my mind is active all the time.
I play this and a few others on my MAC, my iPad, and my iPhone. I know, I need to get a life! lol But, this is my life. I’ve had to learn to let go of many things and find new things to replace them. Thanks to the internet, I found games!! Woot Woot!
At this time, I’m getting ready to watch, Alfred Hitchcock Presents. He was a twisted little man. Probably why I like his shows. The Birds  is a favorite of mine. Years ago I was in Bodega Bay and they still have the ‘fake’ crows on the school fences and around the town. Totally creepy, but wickedly cool. Psycho  is another favorite. There are so many of his works I love. Wicked is as wicked does! 😛
Off for now and back to Alfred Hitchcock Presents. Kids are all out with friends, hubby getting ready for bed, so quiet time with TV for me. Ahhhhh silence!
Thanks to so many, we have raised 240.00 and the MS society may donate 300.00 as well. WOOT WOOT!
Gifts will be sent out this month to all who have donated. If anyone else is interested, please feel free to read this blog for more information!
This is a personal fundraiser for my dd Ashley. Ashley’ band has the opportunity to go to NYC Spring 2011. They will be going to: The Empire State Bldg., Hard Rock Cafe, A Broadway Play, Times Square, Bubba Gump, Statue of Liberty, NY Philharmonic at Lincoln Center, and the piesta resistance …their band will be performing in a NYC Parade!!
The cost for this trip is 1500.00 + any monies for her to have while in NYC. It includes all of the above plus round trip airfare and the Hotel.
This, IMHO, is a chance of a lifetime for her and she deserves to go. She has been Principal’s list for 6 years, President’s list for 5. She is in all IB/Honors classes and plays in Marching Band and Concert Band. She also played 2 years AYSO Soccer while still keeping a 4.0. This is not to brag [ok it is a little] but to explain why I feel she deserves to go on this trip.
This is how the fundraiser will work. For any donation 10.00 or over you will receive a surprise hand made accessory made by me. Accessories will range from cell phone charms/lanyards, bracelets, to necklaces or more. 100% will go to her trip.
If you are able to donate, please click the donate button. After you log in, click the send money, then personal, then gift. In the notes please write; NYC Fundraiser. Make sure your address shows up for your hand made item from me.
There is an awesome pair of baked clay UGG’s [discontinued color] herefor sale. The money from these is also going into her fund. 🙂
It was a weird day. lol Drama in a group I am in. So hate when people cannot admit they did something wrong and then turn it into ‘poor me’! There are certain tems and words that NO ONE should say or write. How hard is it to know this. Sadly I called the person on this offensive word and she just did not get it! I feel sad for her really. Oh well, maybe one day she will get it! Not my problem. She left and all is calm and friendly again!
My kids each had a friend over for the day. Six teenagers in the house!! I thought I would lose my mind, but it was a very nice evening. We got them all pizza, they jumped on the trampoline and played wii games. No fights…they are growing up!!
We have one friend still here and we keep hearing giggles and scream coming from the front room. I love the sounds! They are playing wii racing and having a blast!
I love when the days can just be lazy days and we can all hang out.
Hope everyone has had a nice weekend!!
