what's on my mind

Christmas...I want to make it meaningful and traditional...and exciting for my girls.

How big my kitchen feels now that we knocked down a wall- so to all homeowners, when it doubt, knock it out.

My wood floors Chay sanded and refinished last weekend- beautiful. Loud and echos horribly. But beautiful.

I cried watching Sound of Music the other night. What a good wholesome movie. I can't stop singing the music from the movie.

I love Maria. Don't we all?

my health- seems to be getting worse. I try to ignore it as much as I can. MS is lonely and misunderstood by everyone who doesn't have it. It plays a mind game on me constantly as I try to talk myself out of fatigue, weakness, and pain. Every small thing is a big chore and I try to keep a smile on my face. I just treasure the moments when I feel on top of my game. I have days when I can go go go and not stop and I get giddy inside with my youthful abundance of energy. I am reminded of my old self- back in the days when I was constantly going and playing- working. It really is wonderful. I really try to thank Heavenly Father for each moment of strength and capability my body performs.

Ok so...what is majorly consuming my mind is found in the following 3 videos. I am completely fascinated by this...and I go in on November 23 to see if I can be "liberated". This is very new and still being researched...and the doctor's office told me insurance will pay for this for now until they find out it is being done to help MS patients.

But basically Dr. Zamboni is trying to prove that MS is a vascular problem and not an autoimmune disease.

But I am very careful and so I wanted to feel good about this- and you know, I do. I really do feel good about it. I am hopeful and prayerful...and my heart pounds so hard just thinking about how this might help me. So please watch...and tell me what you think.

You can learn a lot about MS from these videos. So if you're bored and wonder what the heck I'm attempting to do to help myself...have at it.

Joette and Dad- these videos explain it better than I can...
