Yup, that's right, I jinxed myself with that last post. Not two hours AFTER writing it I managed to sprain my ankle. Then, on Monday, the Vet called and confirmed that River does indeed have pancreatitis.

But this is all okay....it's just the last crappy things to happen in a crappy year and I still stand by my earlier post...2009 is going to kick-ass. And, not that I really needed any confirmation of this, but here's what my super groovy horoscope says:

CANCER (June 21-July 22): "Dear Rob: These last few months have been
absurdly full of pluses and minuses, ups and downs, lefts and rights. There
have been so many good things happening and yet so many obstacles,
too. It often feels like we Crabs are being rewarded and punished at the
same time. I'm wondering where it's all going and when it will end? A
happy ending? A sad ending? No ending? Will zero ever equal one? -
Agitatedly Neutral." Dear Agitated: You're at the climax of a long
balancing process. I suggest you take this opportunity to tally up the
valuable lessons you've learned in the relentless back-and-forth. Your
graduation to a less ambiguous chapter of your life story will be more
robust if you work hard to extract the meaning from experiences you've
tended to see as random or confusing.

Happy Accident: Celebrating seeing good friends tomorrow and being
waited on hand and foot. {{giggles}}

So long 2008

Thank the Goddess that 2008 is coming to an end! It's been a bitch of a year and I don't remember feeling so excited that a new year is beginning.

I'm feeling so hopeful that 2009 will continue to show improvement of my broken brain! Maybe this year we truly will get the MS under control.

Happy Accident: Celebrating ushering in the New Year feeling better then I have in 4 years!

Christmas Blog, Part II

I've been especially frustrated this Christmas. I wanted to find that PERFECT gift for my husband. That one gift that says everything I feel for him. His importance to me. How thankful I am that I am so treasured, adored, protected. The gift that can express that my heart belongs to only him. How much I appreciate the little things he does for me everyday that says, "I love you."

But the truth is that even if I had a kabillion-zillion dollars, no material gift exists that can express, what I can't even find the words to say most of the time. I could get a rock, that represents how you are the strength that gets me through each day. I could get a priceless work of art that represents the masterpiece that you are. I could get you aromatherapy to represent how you soothe my trouble soul time-after-time. But, again, it would never be enough, it would never SAY enough.

I've already given you my heart. So, this year all I can give is my pledge that everyday I will try to aspire to be as good a wife to you, as husband you are to me.

You are my light, my heart, my strength, my hope. I love you!

When Thinking is Hard

Nothing is so sweet as cuddling with my Beasties. Especially when I'm recovering from a Tysabri infusion.
