Bursting Bubbles and Venting
Wednesday, March 08, 2017      10 comments

Well, I know there are some SP who will really relate and you know who you are. I started new job almost 4 weeks ago and it's been wonderful. Yesterday, I had a meeting with someone in the Learning Management area. I realized speaking wit... Read more
Visibility Disability
Sunday, February 19, 2017      9 comments

I have always been visible. Part of it from an early age has been because of being interracial. Especially when I was a child, people look at you and your parents. I come from a strong maternal line. My cousins and I range from blonde to de... Read more
Doctor's Visit
Friday, February 10, 2017      5 comments

I bit my nails until a few years ago. I mean chewed them. I used to commute with my mother and she used to smack me when I bit them. This was odd because not only was I an adult but we were different colors. A few years ago I just made up m... Read more
Shopping Expeditions
Monday, February 06, 2017      7 comments

Another shopping expedition. However, this one although it had huge savings was not of the inexpensive variety. I finally have a new job! I flew in the face of conventional wisdom. I am a woman of a certain age with mobility issues and out... Read more
Sharing Another Cheap Fashion Find
Friday, January 13, 2017      10 comments

Going shopping with DH sometimes is like going with a child. Turn your head and he disappears. Wednesday we went on a BJs run. He disappeared so I stayed by last sighting in the middle of the store. Time was passing, started to wander. Eart... Read more
Decluttering Discovery
Thursday, December 29, 2016      6 comments

It's the time of year for decluttering. I like to get as much old stuff out of the house. Sort of karma, clearing the decks for a less encumbered future. And I take the tax deduction, too. So, you know how it is, those clothes you hang on t... Read more
Spark Anniversary Musings
Sunday, December 25, 2016      9 comments

I signed up for Spark today in .2008! I was despondent and weighed 26 pounds more. DH was at the beginning of his serious downward spiral. I was alone because he was "medicated." It only got worse. We have been together for 15 Christmases, ... Read more
Infusion #2
Monday, December 19, 2016      4 comments

Rituxin infusion number 2. Again, no immediate reactions. And no black ice. So, I went with my little boy snow boots which were way too heavy and hot. I brought socks an SP sent me but couldn't use 'cause we didn't have a shoe horn. We were ... Read more
Four Pounds
Sunday, December 11, 2016      6 comments

Monday, I had infusion therapy to help me continue to walk and hopefully retard/reverse my condition. I was terrified. One of the things I was asked before we started was how much did I weigh. In the past this question has been somewhat embar... Read more
Infusion Update
Monday, December 05, 2016      5 comments

Thank you all so much for your thoughts and prayers. I sailed through the infusion - no reactions. I was a wreck going in this morning. I saw quite a few of my old commuter mates on the way in. It was hard as I have so deteriorated, especiall... Read more
Infusion
Sunday, December 04, 2016      2 comments

Tomorrow I go for a Rituxin infusion - 6 hours! I hate needles. In a word, I am scared. Moderately hopeful,too. My understanding is that there will be Benadryl because of hives. Maybe nausea. Nausea doesn't frighten me. We will have to ... Read more

Well, since I have been home and without work for a year, I have lost 3 -5 pounds. However, since I have been home I go to the gym pretty religiously. Things have shifted around. So, two years ago I bought some nice new pants, primarily at Ta... Read more
