As the title post says, I am definitely singing the predensione blues. This week I'm on 10mg a day, which is half of the 20 mg I was on before. It takes me about one hour to get from the bedroom to the bathroom in the morning, right when I first get up. Thank God for the narrow hallways, as I hold on to both sides to give me support down the hall. Then in the sink I lean on that to wash my face and brush my teeth. What is so amazing to think about was I was on 10mg a day about 3 years ago and felt fine! But then I started gaining weight and that is what really put added strain on my bones and joints. I have no one to blame but ME!! I wish I could go back in time and not have gained that weight. But as they say, hind sight is ALWAYS 20/20. How true!!
I guess I'm "paying the piper" like my dad always said!! And what a piper to play!!
As you all may know, I recently received "The Sylish Blogger Award." Here are some of the lucky blogs I blessed the award with. Some have chosen to receive it and put it on their blog, and others have not. It's their choice. Please stop by their sites and show their blog some love!! :0) Here's the list:
My Life In A Blog This is one of my favorite blogs. Not because Gina is my dad's girlfriend, but because I like her as a person and her blog shows her hard work! :0)
Looney Life - My Life As A Housewife and Mom
This is one of my dearest childhood friends that we found each other on Facebook and then on Blogger! She has such a beautifully decorated blog, you should stop and see it. She already decorated for Christmas, which is her (and mine!) favorite time of the year!!
A Real (Upstate) NY Housewife This, too, is one of my favorite blogs. Martha really says it like it is and I LOVE that in a person. She is involved now in a campaign where you write a post a month for November and combining that with a letter campaign where you write letters to your parents, ex boyfriend/husband, to a stranger, ect. The letters are very good!! Stop by and see for yourself!!
Life And Fibromyalagia I just love this blog by Heather! She puts her whole heart and body into it and it shows! She just recently had her mother die from complications of Alzheimer's disease was taking care of her at her childhood home. And what a fine job Heather did considering she, herself, suffers from fibromyalgia. All mother's should be as lucky to have such a devoted and caring daughter. When you have a moment, stop by her site.
When Hello Means Goodbye
This is a cute site featuring Grayden, a precocious 2 year old that has completely filled the hearts of his adopted mom and dad. The adoptive parents went through a horrible nightmare of losing an infant just moments after he was born. Very sad story, but incredible blog.
OK, that is it for the award round-up, I will be giving out more soon to those sites I find adorable and educational!! So watch out, I may be surprising you with the award!!
Now for the beautiful scenic picture. Here goes:
Here's the poem I selected for this post. I hope you like it:
I first saw the conch
When I was walking on the beach.
It came from nowhere
Going absolutely anywhere.
I looked and it was there.
I leaped forward
As I had never seen one before.
It was so beautiful,
And curved with an angels touch
I just knew it's sound would be perfect.
Calling anywhere to anyone,
Calling them to come join me
To make me happy,
To lessen my sorrow.
Yes, I wanted to hear it
So bad that it ached the
Edges of my heart.
I have called others before
But they are close
But yet far away.
Never there when I need them
But always home.
I need that conch
To reach a lonely heart
That matches my heart.
It will call far
And I will have a new and better chance.
As I reach down for the conch,
I am just brushing sand
It is like there was no conch
Only my silly dreams and
It is like I imagined it.
I stand up,
Heart broken for a moment
While a new wish fills my heart.
Someday I will have that conch
And it will bring me a love so deep
I never could have imagined.
Hope everyone has a great Saturday and Sunday. Geez, it's so hard for me to think today what with having fibro fog and all. And I just used some of my Polar Frost gel and got some of it in my eye! Aye Carumba!!!!! That BURNS!!
Have a great weekend!
