Catching Up

I'm trying to get caught up....STILL! This year has been a bust, essentially. January was preparing for Florida. February was Florida....almost a total bust. March, April and May thus far have been me coughing and popping ribs. SERIOUSLY. Since we have been home, one of us, (Doug, Jacob or me) have been hurt or sick the. entire. time. Eighty percent has been me. Nice. HOWEVER...Praise the LORD that it's been over a week and NO RIBS OUT!!!! Whoo-Hooo!!!

So. Then Thursday I have this migraine from the pit of hell. I mean PIT. Ug. Pull-the-curtains-and-beg-everyone-to-be-quiet migraine. Almost-throw-up migraine. With a very active 3 1/2 year old and 3 dogs...not so much. Thankfully my dear friend Shawn came to pick Jacob up in the afternoon, and all the doggies took a nap, so I was able to sit in my nice, dark living room and very quietly watch a movie. At least I didn't have to have my sunglasses on this time. Curtains with the color name "espresso" help!

So June is Myasthenia Gravis Awareness Month. I'm always debating what to do...I'm going to contact the local papers, and maybe churches. I'm terrified of calling the News because I DO NOT want to be on camera.

Anywho...I promise to be a better blogger!!! I should be inside a lot more this week because it's going to be hot, Hot, HOT! Which is not so good for the MG. High heat and humidity make me feel "unplugged." Yup, like someone literally unplugs me, and all my energy is gone... {sigh.} Oh, well. We'll make it.

Happy Sunday everyone!

I'm glad your ribs are behaving! I had to laugh about the curtains. I have sage green, very thick, keep the sun, and the temperature out for when I have migraines too. I hope you have another week where your ribs cooperate, no illness in your family, and no headaches. Now if we can just keep the near 90 degree weather from ramping up our mg symptoms we might just make it.
Blessings on this Sunday!

I am glad you are feeling better! I am also working on some ideas for June I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with. I especialy can't wait to see what Jen's final project looks like! And I am still working on that last piece of art for you!

Hey there :)

I just dropped by to answer your question. When my rats go outside they don't get sunscreen. I take them only in shady spots to be careful.
