Warning: This post may use the words poo & bum, and cause outright laughter...
What did you have for breakfast? Sometimes my days are very boring, and not much happens. Other days...
It started yesterday. During a fab day out Christmas shopping with a girlfriend I developed a sore ankle - which I naturally ignored - never let a foot impediment get in the way of a good Girls Day Out! Then later that night, exhausted, and with Hubby just getting home at 6.45, and no dinner on the table - I said - well lets just have waffles! SO there were were at 8.00pm at night having waffles, and cream and maple syrup - for Dinner!! (At least they were sourdough, and have eggs in them... I won't mention the vast quantities of fat in the butter. or cream. Not if you don't. )
Anyway - My sore ankle? is still sore... this morning I discovered it has a reduced range of motion. So what? Well after a quick google check - don't you love google - it has ALL the answers! I have spasticity in that left foot now it seems. Yucky yucky yuck poo bum. (I DID warn you!)
So what? Well I have MS (Multiple sclerosis) (If you don't know what that is go and google it. Try wikipedia. I'll wait)...
So - this is my First sign of progression since 2006, I'm not happy 'bout that. Which means today is now a designated "rest, stay cool, and no stress day"... Right... other than paying the bills, taking the framed art to the shop, returning a broken frame to K-Mart, and the FN (fortnight) grocery shop? With a heat wave coming. Well 30 is a heat wave for me... Hmmm my list of things to do is huge, and now I need to make dr appointments, and think about treatment for spasticity -which means physio, or doing stretches myself, which will still take more time out of my day - groaning melodramatically -
why is life never simple?
O.K. need to stop thinking about the list. It's making me stressed just thinking about it. Right then - No lists. They are evil. (Except when you read other peoples lists on Aimees List it Tuesday :-).
I Breathe. Nice thoughts. watching the birds enjoy the bird bath. Oh, and see the cat watching them through the window - cute. But I know what he wants to do - go outside and eat them. Don't think about the psycho teenager Alpha Male Cat who wants to go outside and hunt...or the fact that both the cat litter trays really, really do need freshening up... or the cat hair dust bunnies I know are there somewhere if I look... nope not looking.
Instead Look at the pretty flowers in the vege garden...without thinking of the fruit fly that have already stung the tomatoes, which requires a trip to Bunnings to buy fruit fly traps, or netting, or napalm... and definitely don't think about the 28 spotted lady beetle that you know is lurking on your eggplant leaves having a munch...
Thinking about munching...Hmmm getting hungry - time for breakfast. At least we have bread (it's only just a little stale), and eggs, and milk ( just enough for a coffee).. which I'll surely need if I am to be superwoman and figure out what I can do with the 2 wrinkled apples, and a sad lemon, I can see in the fruit bowl... Nope can't be bothered with the eggs - there is just enough waffle batter left for 1 more - and THAT's what I had for breakfast!
Thanks to everyone for all your comments! I look forward to them every morning :-)
