Habits and pets and Insanity, Oh my!

Oh my goodness, please let this summer slow down if only to give me a chance to catch my breath. I hate to say it- the date is scaring the shit out of me! All last month, I was counting down the days until the kids got out of school, so maybe I would have some time to take it a bit easier. Not happening.

July has flown past me and I can only hope that August calms down a LOT! It really needs to or I am not going to feel rested and relaxed before the school year begins again. And then- insanity will rise again I try to get readjusted to the grind of school, homework, projects and so on.

I think that my next habit is going to have to be similar to Kat’s- to take time for myself. It I don’t, I may juts explode. Literally. And I am sure that won’t be a pretty sight LOL

Scarlett is doing ok- the vet said at her re-check this morning that she may stay the same as she is now, or she may continue to progress. No way of knowing. But she can now be “released” from her bathroom jail and is now allowed some more freedom to raom about in our bedroom. She is so excited about this change of scenery that she has hidden under my bed for the entire day! AHHH!

Harley has new meds for her eye and we will need to be in contact with a specialist through our own vet on other options we can try. If there are any….

My habits are good- last two days I have been keeping up with them well. My mom told me she thought that my “arms looked skinny.” Maybe they are actually looking a bit toned? Yeah, let’s go with that LOL

other than that, we are starting to get moving along slowly with Gary’s disability. All I can say is how much Lyme disease really sucks, and how it can take so much out a person’s life. But we also refuse to let it get the best of us. At moments, sure thing, it just rips each of us apart, physically and mentally and emotionally. But we always have to remember to keep strong, pull ourselves back together and fight onwards. A few days ago, I was herxing and I had my O-Fam yelling with me, Die Lyme DIE!!!! Nothing like a violent Faery screaming to kill those spirochetes!!! Buhahahah!

So that’s it- same old same old. But the sun is shining, I have a great family/extended family/O-Family/great friends.

I am blessed.


New Habit: Day 1

This feels kinda weird- but I am going for it! MY new habit is to do sit ups every day. After I can get going on that, who knows what will happen next… push-ups?? LOL
But Day 1 7-1-08 I did 15 sit-ups.
Stop laughing! I’m sick and weak remember! smile_angelLOL Lyme has a bad way of really making you tired and weak- so IMO- 15 sit-ups is a great start.

Ok- you can laugh now- 15 is really quite pathetic. But I am planning on adding more as I feel comforatble. And as with everything with Lyme, some days I am going to be able to do many more, others, maybe only one or two.

But I am promising you Sally-even if it *kills* me I will do at least one sit-up every day.smile_regular

A new Habit!

I am working on a new habit- from here:


My new habit is going to be doing sit ups- every night. And blog about it here.

Sounds like fun? Well, maybe not fun, but I want a toned tummy for vacation!

Awesome Birthday Dinner- Yum and Fun!


40 is now the new 30! Cheers!


Birthday Hugs from Mark


Old friends!

Jenn took me to dinner at The Copper Bottom, this awesome restaurant in Florida NY. Jenn used to work with Trixter – just a few years ago smile_wink– you know, in the early 90’s. Trixter‘s drummer, Mark Scott now owns this fab restaurant so we decided to go and get some star treatment of our own for my birthday.

What a blast! Not only did we get awesome treatment by everyone in the place, the food was to die for! And I had the best company. (And nice adult company too—I love my kids but is sure as hell was nice not having to hear them bicker. Not that Jenn and I have never bickered- we sure have, but we don’t do that all that much any more heh!)

So from the company, the drinks- champagne!- the food and the wonderfully relaxing atmosphere- it was a totally fun birthday dinner.

Party time!

I promised to post some of the pictures we took from Jenn’s birthday part.

Gary and I had such a blast! It was at Dexter’s in Riverdale, and the club put on a great party for her. Jenn booked the party there because the The Flying Mueller Brothers were playing. I had heard of them, but never seen them before. Talk about a damn fun band! Surfer dudes, playing island music with lots of audience participation.
