Miss me? Well I have certainly missed you!! Ooh I really have.. It has been such a huge week I don’t really have a clue where to start..

I’m so excited with all that is happening, I’ve had to pinch myself a few times to see if it is real.. My sweet Alisha and I have been two very busy women. Her husband Richard too has become quite an ingenious fella to have around too. We are at the process in the book where we are down to the covers and the final edit.. Everything is happening so fast it doesn’t seem real, like I said before.

Between writing and computer everything I put together my new top of the line printer that came in replace of my old broken one, God I love warranties..

Last Tuesday I went to Calgary to see Dr. Baverstock for my semi-annual bladder Botox; take my word it was due. I knew I was getting close around the 5 month mark. I did have an emotional melt down that day. I have to be grateful that my strength and ability to walk long distances (long for me.) The parkade at the Rocky View Hospital was packed, and I do mean packed. I drove up and down 4 stories 5 times before I found a spot. It wasn’t a handicap either; I was at the far end of the parkade. I walked a VERY long way just to get to the elevator bank, none of this was including the stress level in my head as it took me a half hour of driving in circles to get parked; which in turn meant I was late. I was sobbing when I finally had parked the car. I felt like my world was crashing in on myself. I know all of this is crazy, just my MS head. Everything was great actually, I got in all on my own; no one cared that I was late, as it turned out I wasn’t the first cripple in there that day unhappy about the parking. Ha ha, I love when I get to figure out the good side of a day.

I had been snooping for a set of golf clubs as for when I was so sick before I sold mine. Amazingly I found some on Kijiji for sale in Calgary. I called the number the day before I was heading to Calgary; it was great, they were only $50. I didn’t know how great of a deal I got until I had them in my car; well for that matter until I got them home and Kyle seen them. As it turned out the bag itself was probably $50 plus the is close to a hundred bucks worth of balls in the bag too. What a steal I am telling you. I think the crap at the hospital still sucked but coming home with my new clubs was terrific. Kyle was guessing my $50 set is worth $600. The best part was; we went out on to our front lawn; here is where my life is so great!! We went out and we both hit balls down through our front 2 acres; I hit and made great contact, ha ha still standing to; AMAZING!!I love my life OMG; I love my life.

I’m going now to physiotherapy twice a week; doing great I must say.. Chiropractor when needing to, acupuncturist too. I’m doing a minimum of 20 minutes on my elliptical everyday. Today I went out and waked the dogs a good kilometre or more. Things are moving along quite well with my exercise and weight. I am down to a great 211 pounds, not bad for starting way up around 230. I have been working my ass of literally.. Like I said life is treating me so well. Tonight Kyle came in here beside me while I was typing away; he stuck his head in on my shoulder as asked “you know I love you right?” He was choked up in his voice; guessing this is why hiding his head in my neck. I always get emotional too when he is being all sentimental. He gets that lump in his throat; damn him then so do I. He is a gentle man, he just doesn’t like to show it, if it’s avoidable. I laugh when sometimes the feelings just become overwhelming and over flow which is exactly what happens; always causes my heart to flutter too.

Thank God and the bank for the line of credit. Last week when I was on my way to Calgary I was listening to the radio; out here on the Olds channel they have a local buy and sell; the plays everyday. One Tuesday this man called in and had a 14 foot tandem trailer for sale for only $850, this is a price unheard of for a trailer like this. I immediately called him, I was actually messily scribbling his number on my hand. I then made the call, I asked him a few questions then reach Kyle. Kyle then made whatever decision he made with the man. Last night Kyle called him to see if it was still there; if it was we would come look at it this morning. We came home with our new 14 ft trailer; buying it made me a bit nutty, but I know that it’s actually a money saver. Now we can go out cut our own wood for the wood stoves, instead of having to pay $2000 like last year. Our new trailer just saved us $1000 bucks in one season. I know I’m probably justifying out loud, but we really do need it; and it was a great buy!! Grocery shopping, walking. Wow what a day!! This has been a terrific day lead up to by a terrific week.. I missed you all and hope your week was a great as mine!! I have a terrific picture to put up; I just have to go to the other computer. IMG_0203

Love and hugs Fiona
