Reason to love the cold rainy day

Reason to love the cold rainy day

It is a rainy, cold and miserable day here in New York. The kind of day you want to sit on the couch wrapped up in a blanket and watch Netflix from morning to night.  The kind of day you pray you have nothing to do, nowhere to be, and no other obligations. The kind of day I am remotely grateful that I have multiple sclerosis and have nothing to do, nowhere to be and no other obligations. I…

My family my support

My family my support

Good Morning to everyone. I think I’m officially through all my infusion side effects now. I’m happy to say I’m doing ok. Now I’m waiting for the New York weather to start resembling normal weather for the end of September. I’m ready to turn of the AC and bring out my comfy sweatshirts I love so much. I find the fact that it is humid very annoying. I love sweating during my workouts but hate sweating when I’m not doing…

Celebrating Flag Day

Celebrating Flag Day

So I goofed and I thought Father’s Day was yesterday. I never looked at a calendar. Mother’s Day is the second Sunday in May, just assumed Father’s Day followed the same protocol for June. I sent my dad an e-card (he received his present already). My stepdad celebrated by my sister upstate and then was having dinner by me. I even wished everyone a Happy Father’s Day ending my blog on Saturday. Week ahead. It wasn’t until I called my…

Attitude Gratitude reminder from my sister

Attitude Gratitude reminder from my sister

My mood has been dark lately. I miss my dog. I feel alone. It’s been a tough couple of weeks. I received  an email yesterday, which was actually my sister’s newsletter. It was entitled Attitude and Gratitude. At the top of the email it actually said thanks Jamie. Truthfully when I first saw it I really thought she personalized it just for me. I honestly thought that even though it was her newsletter, for her business, that the subject matter…

The best Passover Seder

The best Passover Seder

Passover last night was one I won’t soon forget. A big thank you to my cousin Stacy and her fiancé Robby for putting it together. There were roughly 27 families connected through Zoom reading the Seder. The new normal of our everyday lives these days. I must give a hysterical shout out to the addition on the 10 plagues of the coronavirus. It was really funny. That detail and the rendition of Dayenu. For over 40 years we’ve sung that…

Thankfully past thanksgiving

Thankfully past thanksgiving

I’m sitting in my sister’s living room contemplating what I wanted to say this morning. I wanted to show a picture of her beautiful backyard and maybe say some of the difficulties and things that worked being in my wheelchair for the first time at her place. I rolled over to take this beautiful backyard picture and when I turned to the front of the house I saw this Wild Turkeys just walking down her adjacent neighbors driveway into her…

A list of thankful Thanksgivings

A list of thankful Thanksgivings

Thanksgiving is here again. It’s time for family traditions of certain dishes made once a year with an extremely large turkey that is never eaten and always consumed for at least three days after today. My family all contribute a dish. I always make my carrot soufflé which I’ve learned to make for every single diet I am following. https://multipleexperiences.org/2018/03/16/carrot-souffle-vegan-or-non-vegan/. My mom makes a corn soufflé and the stuffing. My sister makes the soup and sometimes brings a vegetable. We…

Wheelchair walks up the mile

Wheelchair walks up the mile

I had a lovely day yesterday. My sister and brother in law visited with their foster girls who are so precious. I was so excited for them to meet my dogs and see my wide collection of humpties that I love dearly. My dogs were a hit, my humpties showed I was young at heart and they loved being here. Win, win, win ❤️❤️❤️. Was super happy about that. My sister and I took a walk up the nautical mile…

Yesterday, today and tomorrow

Yesterday, today and tomorrow

I went out yesterday for the first time this week. I went to mahjong. I almost canceled and I’m so glad I didn’t because as always it was so fun. I did have a tough day and at times I thought I was going to completely collapse over the table. I just couldn’t hold myself up but then the strangest thing happened. About 30 minutes before the game ended I felt better. Like I could sit up straight without falling…

A busy weekend to start the week

A busy weekend to start the week

Busy, busy, busy. A fun but busy weekend indeed which is slightly unusual for me. Friday, I was able to babysit, more like keep company, with a little girl who is as sweet as they come and like a niece to me. We had a great day and did so much. We went in the pool, out for lunch, bathed both dogs and even made cookies. It was a jammed packed day and a lot of fun. My dogs were…
