Yard Sales

Oh man it was yard sale heaven today in my neighborhood. I guess people need money for the upcoming holidays, property taxes and high cost of gas. I was so tempted. I took Peanut to a play date and passed by at least 10 sales in the short 5 mile drive. Then when I stopped at the ATM machine on the way home I saw 3 more. There were 2 close together so I just had to stop. I got the cutest bunny ceramic piece for Easter. It was in perfect condition, still had the box and I got them down to $2. Then I grabbed a bunch of romance paperbacks to re-sell on eBay. The women selling just wanted … [Read more...]

Rain, Rain Go Away

I started to feel better today. Not much coughing, a bit of sneezing and runny nose and more weakness than anything else. Today was the Chronic Illness Support Group meeting. So I knew I had to get my butt in gear and get out of the house. The reason I say "had to" was we began meeting at my church now and we were told that a few people would be coming. I didn't want to leave my co-leader alone as this isn't her church so I felt obligated. I guess that's a better word. It was a rainy day and depending on where you live (in Florida it can be sunny on one side of the street but pouring on … [Read more...]

We’re Off to See the Mickey

The time has arrived. We leave tomorrow for Walt Disney World for our vacation. I know it's going to be beastly hot but we have a lovely one bedroom room at Old Key West. We're DVC members and get to live it up in style. So when the heat gets to me at the parks I just scoot on to the bus and go back to the room for a nap or a swim in the pool. Because of the heat I always go to the parks early in the morning and do as much as I can indoors. After a rest then dinner in our room we head back to the parks after the sun sets. We save money by eating breakfast in our room, taking a bagged lunch … [Read more...]

Planning Our Next Disney Trip

Back to Disney World at the end of June and we're already planning what we want to do. Our family and friends still tease us about going so often. But then when they go, they realize there's so much to do that there's no way you can ever see it all. This time around the newest attraction will be The Laugh Floor Comedy Club in Tomorrowland at the Magic Kingdom. Peanut's read up on it already and is excited to go. That's number one on our list. While we're there we always ride the Tomorrowland Transit Authority. I have no idea why! But it's a nice way to get off your feet for a bit, get a … [Read more...]

To The MDA We Go

A little over four years ago I was diagnosed with a rare nueromuscalar disease called Myasthenia Gravis. MG is also an autoimmune disease, of which I have many. Leave it to me to be diagnosed with a disease that no one can pronounce or has even heard of! Today was my four month check up. I go to the MDA clinic in St. Pete. My neurologist is fantastic. Today's visit with him was around 20 minutes and about 10 minutes with his nurse Sharon. Where can you find doctors like that? No matter how often I go to the clinic I still get a bit nervous. The whole day is stressful for me. I don't … [Read more...]
