Little Dolly

I saw a broken doll a while back in an alley outside my father's store. I must have been about 11 years old. It was in an alley of filth where everyone slung their garbage. This doll had an old fashioned face made of porcelain. It would be valuable today. As I looked at her, I wondered what she had done to be laying about in an alley [...]

Or Should I Say

It's one of those nights, or should I say mornings, when I'm wired and can't get to sleep, or should I say, don't want to sleep.  It's 4:06 a.m. and I'm still just hanging around in my studio, or should I say office, art gallery, craft, music, and everything else under the sun room. I don't know what gets into me on nights such as these but it's [...]

I Lie to Myself

The month of May, where someone somewhere decided that parents should be singled out and praised, is the month I hate the most for that very reason.  Because I was curious as to how Mother's Day started, I decided to Google it and found this interesting article about it.  Click on Mother's Day. As you can see, Mother's Day had its challenges in the past.  Today it is [...]

How Ridiculous

Tomorrow I am having some heart tests done.  I am going to see my cardiopulmonary doctors.  It is absolutely ridiculous that I feel a sense of looking forward to it.  Isn't it?  Am I out of my mind?  Who looks forward to seeing doctors as though it's a social event?

It Can Get Very Dark

I'm sitting here at 7:04 pm alone.  My husband is at work. We want to retire, but we can't just yet.  Medical issues thwart us at every conceivable corner and our life is no longer controlled by us but by whatever comes next after a visit to one or another Doctor's office. For instance.  We went to see one of my doctors the other day and came out [...]

Wet Noodle

Summer is nearly upon us and the dreaded fear of heat leaves me cold.One of Multiple Sclerosis's enemies is heat intolerance.  It's as though we have a thermostat inside of us that has gone out of whack.  When the thermostat approaches within shooting distance of a certain degree of heat, different for each one of us, we turn into wet noodles.The term "wet noodle" is what I call [...]

Please Release Me!

Hello dear readers, I've been wearing a brace around my neck for the last three months.  Prior to this, I wore a different brace from different doctors.  You see, I have had three major surgeries from January 2018 through January 2019.  It's been a miserable year.  One of my surgeries was 9 hours long with THREE attending surgeons who had to seek out a day in their busy [...]
