School’s Out For Summah!

School’s Out For Summah!

Oh yes.  Summer is here! Well, it’s not really here here, but technically it’s here. Our weather is just behind the times.  It’s still sporting a rockin mullet and wearing pegged pants…aaaahhh.  It’s 2 am and you know that brings out the weird in me.  It should in everyone.  Stay up late and get random.

OK, the last week or so has been pure caca. (is that how you spell it???) So instead of whining about docs that don’t really listen, coma sleeps, glass feet, and muscles that make ya go hmmm, I’m going to post a couple of adorable pics of da Bean.

Brand New Bean!

New Bean!

My gosh. Time has FLOWN right by. Four years ago she was just a tiny bean and now she’s in school!  She had her last day of school last week and there was a graduation for the kids that are going on to kindergarden.  Oh gosh, it was so cute!  The teachers built a little stage for the kids to step up on and receive either their graduation certificate or their ‘your coming back next year’ certificate.  So here’s where it gets cute.  The teach calls the Bean’s name and she gets up from her seat, steps up on the little stage, takes the certificate and holds it in front of her for a perfect photo op.  She smiles and then after she shook the teacher’s hand she looked out at all the parents and says “thank YOU”.  Everyone laughed and clapped and whooped and hollered.  She was a rockstar.  So she is smiling like crazy and sits back down as other kids get up for their turn.  Turns out she’s the only one who said thank you (hee hee) and after the last child went up she got out of her seat and climbed onto the stage again to look out and smile at everyone.  She stole the show.

Her Day

Her Day

Isn’t she just the cutest thing evar?!?!  LOL, I know I’m biased, but she so totally is.  I wish I could give a proper shout out to her school and her teachers, but I’m not going to use names without permission, or pictures (note the thought bubble over teacher’s face) and would never give out the name of the school. hmph.  If you are reading this all the wonderful loving teachers in her class, thank you SO SO much for all of the love, support, and excellent skills that you have given her this year.  She’s come a long way from the little girl who cawed to the little girl who could express herself with words.  You guys are amazing and I can never thank you enough.  Well, she’ll be there next year so I can start thanking you again!  One of the things on my ‘well’ list is helping out in the class one day a week.  I want to be there with her, and give her class my time.  Oh how I am praying that my body will listen to my mind and mellow out on me.

Alright. I am so not tired this is ridiculous.  Today is going to be rough.  Ah well.  I’m going to leave you with a bad pic of me. Not real bad, but just not good. Ha!

Until next time

Excited Gramma Gets Publicly Dorky

I’m back! And feelin wiggy…

I’m back! And feelin wiggy…

I can’t believe we are halfway through the year and I’m still pretty much holding down my bed. There are SO many things that; have happened/are happening/are going to happen, it is overwhelming at times. I can’t post about them specifically as they are family issues, but the stress has all but immobilized me.

I have been putting off going back to the new rheumy to start treatment because there is too much going on and I’m needed here to help. At the same time, the longer I wait and the more I do, the sicker I become. It’s so cyclic. Yesterday I told Big C, just go ahead and call. Try and squeeze it in on any day that we have free and I’ll be there. I just can’t wait any longer. Oh, the guilt of it all is unbearable. I feel guilty now when I’m really sick because so many people need me. I’ve been pushing myself and I’m not new enough to think this will have no consequence. sigh. I need a shower people!!! Yes, that is my goal is to make it into the shower today. Taking it minute by minute.

Recently I posted my first ‘post’ Cushings picture on FB. I don’t look as bad as I think I do.(‘they’ say)  I still got it! LOL No, I just got more of it. 🙂 I’m finally coming to terms with the ‘cosmetic’ side of the disease. I am huge compared to my natural weight, but you know what? C still thinks I’m hot. And really, that’s all that matters. woot! I think he’s nuts but I’ll take it. Seriously though, we have seen more lows than highs in our 11 years together. They are usually not our lows, but lows we have had to deal with nonetheless. And we are still together. We are still desperately in love with each other. We are still our favorite people to be around, we make each other happy. He is an amazing man, and I thank God everyday that I was blessed to find my soulmate. OK, enough sappy shmappy.

But in the same vein as vain, ha ha ooohh k, I have found myself scouring the wig catalog that keeps finding it’s way into my mailbox. I’m convinced C’s ex had it mailed to me to begin with, but now I love’em! There are so many rad wigs out there. I WANT ONE. Is that crazy? Are wigs just for grammas anymore? I mean older grammas. I know I’m a gramma. Just not old yet. I’ll be 43 tomorrow, so I’m young to my daddy who’d 80, but ancient to my daughter who’s 20. whatever. So, I find myself picking them up and looking through and actually pining over 2 of them. Wigs. Pining over wigs. Who am I???? 🙂 I’m losing my hair, that’s who I am. So anyway, I decide to look up the company online, and just Google the name and the first couple are always a couple of ads. One of them says, why buy from company x when you can get quality for the same price? And I decided to click on there. Well, I must have been in need of a laugh, because I could not stop laughing. Belly buster laughs. I’m sure it’s-you had to be there-kind of a thing. But each model, down each row was just HILARIOUS!! And I’m not knocking wigs, or wig models for that matter, per say, just these particular ones. There was 3 faces they had while modeling the wigs. 1. faux sexy tigress 2. scared 3. incredibly embarrased  
I just couldn’t stop laughing. And who did the final go ahead with the website after seeing these shots?? I’m not talking about Paula Young’s site btw, I put a link up to her site. That’s the catalogue I keep receiving.  I really, really want the Renni, in that exact color… OK, I’m done yackin about wigs.

I’m really missing being here. I’ll be here more often. Promise.
until next time,

Buffalo Humps and Muffin Tops, Welcome to the World Of Prednisone!

Buffalo Humps and Muffin Tops, Welcome to the World Of Prednisone!

This video is by Lisa Copen, founder of Rest Ministries; a Christian non-profit for the chronically ill.  Rest Ministries puts out Hopekeepers Magazine as well as hosting a social networking site called Restministries and Hopekeepers Sunroom.  I’m a big fan of Lisa, who started this all up on her own while battling crippling RA.  If you check out the site you’ll find a bookstore that has some really good books on chronic illness, invisible illness, and more. She’s definitely one of my inspirations, one of my heros!

OK, here’s my disclaimer.  This is not a paid advertisement for any of the above. This post is my opinion, from my perspective.  With that said, here ya go.

I have been having a ‘sick day’. Been in bed most of the day and just got up and started perusing the internet. I came across this cartoon and thought it was funny. I recently read a story about a guy who was fired after he called into work sick and then posted pics of himself on his facebook partying in a fairy costume complete with makeup.

Good thing I’m already fired and I can post whatever I want, he he he
