Back to eBay

I tried out a new site to sell online. In three months I sold one item...so needless to say I'll be moving back to eBay. I'll probably set up a store again. Although I have chronic illnesses that can cause me to need a break from this, my hubby can take up the slack. Even Peanut is old enough to help weigh, pack and address packages. Heck, she can probably even learn to list using a template! So this weekend I'll be getting down to the nitty gritty of getting a store back up and running. I've been gone from eBay stores for so long, I'l have some re-learning to do, but no biggie. I have a … [Read more...]

Hanging by a Thread

My Peanut had a loose tooth. It was hanging out of her mouth, moving back and forth. She couldn't eat. She was afraid to go to sleep. All I heard was "My tooth won't come out but it feels like it will." I couldn't even get her to school today because she was scared her tooth would come out and would bleed. Yesterday I sent a note to her teacher asking if she'd please let Peanut have a cup at her desk in case her tooth came out. She was afraid if she'd bleed she would only have the faucet to rinse out her mouth. I was at the point where I wanted to pull out my hair. I don't want to hear … [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...]

Heroes

Let's not give the murderer at the Virginia Tech school any more attention. The University, police, FBI, whoever else needs to investigate this incident and why this man was allowed to continue as a student after a lot of warning signs. I'd like to think about the heroes. I've heard of two. I'm sure there are many more. In time their stories will be told. Zach Petkewicz and two other students held the doors to their classroom closed while the shooter was in the hallway. They heard him shooting and he even shot at the door that they were holding. Liviu Librescu, a professor and Holocaust … [Read more...]

Hugging my kids

This Virginia Tech shooting really made me wanna hug my dd's today. It was easy to hug Peanut as I picked her up from school this afternoon. But I couldn't hug Lady Ali who is living away from home at UCF. Couldn't let her know I just needed to hear her voice because she'd get all "oh Moooommm" on me. So I made an excuse about needing some info for taxes - yeah we're mailing them tomorrow, to call her. When you have a 20 year old you have to be very careful of the words you choose. When she's a brainiack it makes it even harder. I'm lucky I can remember how to get to Peanut's school so … [Read more...]
