Family weekend and a quiet week

Family weekend and a quiet week

Good morning. Happy Monday. I had a nice weekend myself, lots of family. I started with my stepmom coming in from Florida. She came Friday afternoon with my younger sister. It was a really nice visit. I missed her hugs. I haven’t seen her in probably 2 years because of Covid. My little sister I see every few weeks, which makes me happy. It is hard to believe a year ago she was living in San Francisco. She hasn’t been…

Today, yesterday and the week

Today, yesterday and the week

I woke up this morning with a headache. Not the way I wanted to start my day. It is going to rain. Thankfully it isn’t a migraine. I actually haven’t had one of those in a while. Hopefully I don’t jinx myself. I have a happy day today. Lots of people coming over. My sister and her kids but more importantly my aunt and uncle. I haven’t seen them since before the pandemic started. I lived a few blocks from…

Contagious Laughing

Contagious Laughing

One day I have windows open in the house next day I’m turning on the heat. Crazy weather in NY. It was Passover this weekend. My mom and stepdad came over and we had a very revised Seder. However they had these new Passover books if I didn’t know the story of Passover I wasn’t learning it from this book. 40 some years I’ve been doing these Seders and I’ve never read from a book that made no sense. I…

New links on page…Happy Birthday Lizzy

Still humid in NY. It rained but that didn’t help. However, i did see after tomorrow temperatures start to drop. Cross your fingers. I added another permanent link to an article that talks about different kinds of pain and how it effects sleep. That includes our wonderful multiple sclerosis symptom of restless leg which many of us deal with. They had some very useful tips so check it out. I also have the MS Gym link on my permanent links….

My trip to see my sister in London

My trip to see my sister in London

Many, many years ago I went to London on my spring break vacation during college. I’m sorry for all those who did the Florida mayhem, my trip was so much better. I was 18 years old, my sister was probably 21. She was studying abroad and spent months seeing much of Europe during that year. For me, this was my first trip abroad and London was my only destination but to this day, it is still my favorite city and…

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…

Water view

Water view

I got my windows open. The sun is shining. It’s supposed to be almost 70° in New York today. The water is still so there’s no wind. I hear couple of birds chirping. I hear the seagulls which lets me know I’m by water. I know I’ll see boats today. I am just loving it. I don’t even mind seeing the bulldozer at the corner lot in my field of vision. It’s crystal clear out. I mean really, how can…

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…

The day of the stuffing

The day of the stuffing

I hope everyone had a yummy feast yesterday. I had a very nice dinner with my mom, stepdad, sister, brother in law and my daughter. We were a small group but still shared many laughs and lots of love. There were a few things I found humerus because you have to laugh when you have MS: It was the first time I was using the ramp at my mom and stepdads home. There are three ramps in all and the…

A very happy birthday

A very happy birthday

My birthday was really nice. My friend Angie actually surprise me with vegan muffins and a candle at my nail salon. That was a very embarrassing display but a very sweet one. I think she was more surprised when I explained to her that I haven’t been even eating vegan. I change diet so often who the hell could keep up anyway. That was my first candle of the day. Good thing she gave me that because my second candle…
