Well, just about to tear down my system for the day. Kind of painful since I’m so addicted to the internet, blogging, photography and graphics. But I will be back online later tonight. I am moving into my dear friend Lyn’s house. The lady who is a professional dog-everything.
Having MS has been very difficult, but I have been through tough times before. However, my health from this disease is deteriorating me almost on a daily basis. Therefore I stepped down from my position as Director with the company I work for as well as cut back to 30 hours per week. I simply cannot work more than that and the stress from my job is not helping my health at all. In doing so, I took a $15k cut in salary, so maintaining a house on my own is more than I’m willing to handle. And, honestly, I do miss Lyn’s company and the dogs. OMG… did I just say that? LOL… yes, I do. Even with the doggie chaos, the barking, the rotation of teams of dogs in the yard, they all bring a smile to my face which has not happened much in the past several months.
Yesterday I actually managed to lay carpet in the two rooms I am going to occupy (LOL.. a new movement, “Occupy Lyn’s”), and I’m paying for it today. I am so sore and weak, can barely walk. But I have some very strong male friends all coming over in a few hours to do the work for me. They’ve always been there for me no matter what. I am very fortunately to have the friends that I do have. They are rare. It is most definitely quality not the quantity that truly matters in life. They are the kind of friends that I would jump in front of a bullet to save their lives if I had to. I have family back east, but, well, it’s just best to say, “You can pick your friends, but you cannot pick your family,” and I will leave it at that.
So, cheers everyone! I will be back on later tonight, and I’m sure in the future, the comedy from these critters will provide me with ample blogging material as well as lots of photography.
