My Easter


1. How do you feel about the marshmallow Easter Peeps?
They are disgusting.  I just can’t bring myself to eat them.
2. Chickens are notoriously nervous creatures. When you are nervous, what is the best way to calm down?

I get nervous all the time and all I can do is try and talk myself down so that I don’t have a panic attack.
3. People say, “April showers bring May flowers.” Do you enjoy Spring rains?

If it is warm rain yes I enjoy it but if it isn’t no I don’t enjoy it at all.
4. When I was randomly flipping through TV channels this week, I saw a show in which tattoo parlor employees received tattoos of a co-worker’s face on their bodies. I can’t imagine having a portrait of a colleague tattooed on me. But if someone forced you to receive a portrait tattoo (face only) of anyone, who would it be? Why?

I would have to chose Misti because she is my friend and it would to crazy to have face on my body.  She has a pretty face as well.
5. Would you rather have a tattoo (any kind) or a nose ring?

Nose ring because I could take it out and a tattoo is permanent.  I change my mind to much to have something on that I can’t change on my body.
6. Do you have any special plans for Easter?

Nope.  My Grandparents are going out of town so I will be home.  I may go to Misti’s house for her families Easter party but I am not sure about that yet.
7. Cadbury Eggs or Reese Eggs?

Reese eggs but Cadbury Mini Eggs are to die for.  I have to pick Reese Eggs though because I won’t eat the whole bag in one sitting.
8. What was the last thing/person you took a picture of?

Probably my nails to send to Misti or one of my girls
9. What book are you reading now, or what was the last one?

The Shack and the last one I read was about the Jews in concentration camps. (I can’t remember the name of it)
10. What do you think is the most difficult task when it comes to Spring cleaning?

All of it.  I am not a dirty person but I do hate to clean.  I will do pretty much anything to get out of cleaning.
11. How many pairs of flip-flops do you own?

5 or 6 I believe.  I don’t wear them though so I don’t really know how many I have anymore.  I have started buying them because my girls like to destroy them.  So I buy them when they are super cheap and give them to them to keep the entertained for a few weeks.
12. Which color makes you happiest?

Probably purple.

Over You


This is all I am going to post today.  It is how I feel about my husband and what he has done to me!

Have a great Tuesday! 

Favorite Things…

What’s your most favorite part of your home?  
Is it a special readin nook?
Is it the broom closet you hide in ?
Is it your drawer pulls in the kitchen that took 34 years to re-do? 
Is it your deck on a summer night? 
Show us in a picture and tell us in words.
What’s your most favorite part of your home. 
What makes you smile. 
———————————————————————–
This is the prompt that Supah & Mommybrain came up with for this week.  To be honest with you I don’t know that I like any one space in  my house more than the other.  So I am going to write about the two things I adore that are in my house.

They are my girls Elinore and Sylvia!  When I refer to my kids these are them.  I couldn’t live a day without them being around.  Animals give unconditional love and for that I will always love my two girls!
I adopted Miss Elinore from a shelter when she was about a year or so.  She had been declawed and really badly abused before I got her.  I have had her for like 4 years now and she is just barely coming out of her shell and becoming a great little kitty for the most part.
Sylvia I got when she was about 8 weeks old.  I had actually picked her out before her eyes even opened up!  She has the most fur I have ever seen on a cat and also very bitchy.  She hates to be held and hates to have her tail touched.  She is the kind of cat that can’t be around little kids.
Those are my girls and I can’t imagine a day with out them!
I hope everyone is having a great Monday!

My Greatest Weakness

 This weeks Prompt:

 Ask someone who loves you what one of your weaknesses is.

This week I asked Misti to answer this question for me here is her response:

WELL THIS IS REALLY KINDA HARD IN A WAY TO ANSWER AND THE REASON BEING IS CAUSE MARGARET I FEEL TO ME IS ONE OF THE STRONGEST PERSON I HAVE EVER MET IN MY LIFE. SO WHEN I THINK OF A WEAKNESS OF HERS IT IS HARD TO COME UP WITH, BUT IF I HAD TO SAY SHE HAD A WEAKNESS IT WOULD BE THAT SHE CAN NEVER, EVER SAY NO TO ANYTHING OR ANYONE REGARDLESS OF WHAT THE SITUATION IS OR ABOUT. SHE NEVER SAYS NO TO ANYONE SO IN RETURN SHE IS ALWAYS OVERWHELMED AND DOING THINGS THAT SHE SHOULD NOT BE  DOING FOR SOMEBODY, MEANING IT IS ALWAYS MORE THAN SHE CAN HANDLE CAUSE SHE IS GOING THROUGH A LOT OF HER OWN THINGS IN LIFE. SHE TAKES ON WAY TO MUCH AND WILL DO IT REGARDLESS OF HOW SHE FEELS OR EXTREME MEASURES AND PAIN THAT SHE HAS TO GO THROUGH. SO IN THE END OF THIS ALL IT IS ONE OF HER WEAKNESSES IN LIFE IS NOT KNOWING HOW TO EVER SAY NO. IF U LOOK AT IT IN ANOTHER LIGHT IT CAN ALSO MEAN ONE OF HER GREATEST QUALITIES AND STRENGTHS AS WELL. MARGARET IS A VERY STRONG, INDEPENDENT WOMAN AND   IS NOT WEAK TO ME AT ALL, SO IF I HAD TO CHOSE THIS WOULD BE A VERY SMALL WEAKNESS OF HERS. I LOVE YA BUNNIE :0)

I want to first off thank Misti AKA Squirrel for writing this for me.  She is always willing to answer or write things for my blog when I ask her to.  Now to respond to what she said she is right.  I don’t know how to say no and I always go above and beyond what I should do for other people.  The funny thing about her writing this is when I went to my last doctors appointment my doctor said that I needed to learn to say no.  I know I should because the stress of it all is killing me but I don’t know how to.  My grandma is the same way that I am.  So I am going to blame it on her.

Maxine On The New Healthcare Bill

Maxine sums it up.

Let  me get this straight. We’re going to be gifted  with a health care plan  written by  a committee whose chairman says he doesn’t understand  it, passed  by a Congress that  hasn’t read it but  exempts  themselves from it, to be  signed by  a president who also hasn’t read it and who  smokes, with  funding  administered by a treasury chief who didn’t pay his  taxes, to be overseen by a  surgeon  general who is obese,  and  financed  by a country that’s broke.  

What  could  possibly  go wrong ??

Well I think an update on the MS is long over due.  For all of you that did read the post where told the results of my MRI I will post a quick recap to bring you all up to speed.  When I went in to see the doctor a few weeks ago she told me that  for the first time since I was diagnosed I was stable!  It is a great feeling to know that I was finally on the drug that was helping me.  So after she told me that she then told me I had to get over whatever my issue was with the new infusion center and go.  I was and am still mad about it  but I will do what they want me to do because this is the only thing that has worked for me.  My next infusion is on the 2nd of April.  I am hoping that all goes well with it because I have to go alone because of work and the fact that Grandma is going out of town that day.
I don’t think when I wrote my last that I really got into what the medication I am on does for MS and the bad condition it could cause.  I am on a drug called Tysabri that is administered once a month by an infusion.  An infusion is something similar to what they do when you are having chemo or getting a blood transfusion.  Tysabri was released in 2004 after that it was take off of the market because a few people developed PML or Progressive multifocal leukoencephalopathy.  This is a very rare viral brain condition that causes progressive inflammation of the white matter in the brain.  From what I was told this virus lives in the kidneys of people but most people without compromised immune systems can keep it under control and it causes no problems.  Tysabri works by attaching to the blood brain barrier and keeping the immune cells out of the brain.  So because the immune system can’t get up into the brain PML can take over.  There is currently no test to test for the virus.  They released the medication back on the market in 2006 with strict warnings and stipulations.  When I signed up to do this drug I had to sign a waiver saying that the FDA could look at my medical records at any point.
So far this is the only thing I have found to work.  I know the risk of PML greatly increases after you have been on the drug for two years and I am about at that point.  Today 31 0r 33 patients have gotten PML so that makes the odds about 2 in 1000 that you will get it.  For me the benefits still out weigh the risks.  That is a little bit about the drug that I am on let me know if you have any other questions about it!
