Just Yacking About This and That

For the record, I never stopped blogging, there were just large intervals of time between posts.  Time slipped away from me, which it seems to slip quicker away the older I get or the more illnesses I need to deal with.  Ten years ago, I never saw myself here so be careful not to put off plans of things you really want to do because you may not get the opportunity to do them.  Our bodies seem to have minds of their own, especially mine... and it's a stubborn one.  ;-)

I do have my pity pot days, as I call them, when I let myself feel sorry for myself and get mad at the world and fate for making it me who gets so sick instead of some rotten person who needs some punishment.  However, I by having the pity pot day, I get rid of the negative emotions and get on with life and see just how much I have to be grateful for.  I am so blessed to have the people who I have in my life.  I also have my cameras, photos, books, writing, DVDs, and TV.  But really, nothing outside of the people really matter much because without the people, nothing else would matter because I couldn't share anything. 

Well, I warned you with the title.  ;-)

I want to wish Dawn a very happy birthday as well as Cowboy Joe (Sorry I'm late!!) and Vickie happy happy birthdays as well!  I know I called Vickie but I didn't want to forget her here.

I called my pulmonologist's office today to check on my sleep study results and no big surprise, I need an ASV sleeping device.  It's in the CPAP and BYPAP category but it's a lot more technical and more expensive, I'm sure.  I don't know why but I have to go pick it up from the medical equipment company instead of them delivering it.  I don't know when yet, probably the first part of next week because they have to order one from a warehouse.  *yawn*  yep, I'm sleepy too.

Elyssa is getting along really well in swimming this summer.  My wonderful SIL Joan is taking her swimming as well to her swimming lessons with the teacher Tiffany.  Tiffany is wonderful with Elyssa and teaches her one-on-one and E listens to her (where she wouldn't when I was there in the Mommy and me type class).  She's working on pushing her legs down to the bottom with her abs.  Today was  her 4th lesson and I just scheduled four more, through July.  I might even got two more into August but we'll see how she does. 

Elyssa really misses dance class!  Which reminds me... I need to see if they have the schedules up yet.  She loves the self expression and the best part is watching herself in the mirror.  Hmmm... maybe not, I think she just likes the self esteem it gives her; she beams when she's dancing around even at home in the kitchen area.  She will probably never be a prima ballerina but she is already is in her heart and mine...and that is all that matters. 

Not much else to say really.  I could complain about health issues but I won't because it's boring.  Some days it's pretty funny though, when try to find the thing that doesn't hurt.  It's usually the eyebrows and the ears.  ;-) 

I hope you all are having a great week!  Take care!

Hi Sweetie! Oh boy do I know what you mean! I know my health problems aren't as severe as yours, but I can understand how you feel. Sounds like Elyssa is getting on well with her swimming. Hope you get some relief with your new sleep machine. Love you!!!

When you've been as ill as you've been you're allowed your pity pot days! I bet Elyssa is a real light in your life :) I'm glad she's enjoying her swimming and I hope she gets to do her dance classes again soon.

Hi Karen!

Have you tried some Richard Simmons aerobic videos? She could probably dance a long with those. There are some fun ones like Sweatin to the Oldies, a 1980's one and some others too. Maybe more exercise to tire her out so she doesn't try to squeeze you guys to death. What did the Phsyc say you should do when she does that? My mom always has said that tickling is like torture and can be overstimulating. I know you do tickling with her and your sister did too. Take Care.
