One Of Those Days

I actually got out of the house this morning.  It was only to go to Walmart to pick up a few groceries but I was thrilled to be able to do it! After being stuck in the house for three weeks I was getting a little stir crazy.  Not that I am not happy at home because I am.  But sometimes you just need to get out and see another environment and other people.  I was beginning to think that this cold/flu was going to last until next year this time.  I am glad that it is finally beginning to get a little less intense.

Some of the trees have started changing colors and are looking really pretty.  There are pumpkins out at the fruit markets and autumn decorations in some of the store windows.  Although many are whining about summer being over, I, for one, am thrilled.  This is my favorite time of year and I am getting excited about all the changes that happen during these next few months.

My husband and I will have our wedding anniversary this Saturday (29th).  With all the problems he faces in taking care of me with my MS and having my mother living with us, I could not ask for a better husband.  He is patient, kind, loving, caring and always trying to do the best he can for me.  I thank God every day for him.

We lost a dear friend last night.  John Stout was a wonderful man who always had a smile and a big hug for everyone.  He will be greatly missed by all who knew him.  Please say a prayer for his wife, Gray, and family as they go through this grieving period.  (Their anniversary would have been this Sunday so it will be especially hard on Gray.)

My brain has been so clogged up with cold and I have felt so lousy that I have barely been able to get up and move around a little.  I have thought of several ideas for blogs but been unable to get them written out.  I hope to get back into my stride next week.  I miss writing and having your comments to think over. 

I have been approached by a lady from Spectrum Science about doing a follow up blog on one I posted back in June on Pseudobulbar Affect (PBA).  I hope that I will be able to put it together in a manner that will be interesting to you.  The couple I am interviewing are really fascinating and I hope to have that finished soon.

At present, I am keeping the tissue people in business and hoping to get back into a REAL life soon………….have a great weekend!!!

Janie, I'm so sorry you haven't been feeling well -- get better soon!! I love seeing all the beauty of fall (it's not my favorite season, but I do enjoy the scenery!) Sad about your friend -- added to my prayer list! Congrats on the interview!! Keep us informed...

Thanks Muff.....I hope we are FINALLY getting this thing licked. Three weeks is enough! Yes, I will miss my friend, but he is in Heaven hugging everyone! I hope I can get the interview fine-tuned and ready for the blog. They are really an interesting couple. Take care!
