Wow, once again, I have completely lost track of how long it's been between posts. Oops.
Much new with me and mine, too much to post here. I started working from home (same job, just do it at home) in January of this year. It's much better for me as I can move around when I need to and can manage my many meds more easily. I have also lost 30 pounds since I came home to work! Without dieting! I have found that I am one of those women who does well with the snacking all day (healthy snacks!). My biggest bugaboo was bread and chocolate. I don't keep either in the house, and I don't eat them if I go out unless I get a hamburger. If I'm dying for chocolate, I can have a cup of sugar free pudding. Anyways...
My father was diagnosed with dementia (NOT Alzheimers) in July of this year. He and my mother are moving into an assisted living facility in November. It is a lovely place and just down the hall from my dad's brother. I am very fortunate that my parents can afford to do this. Of course, meantime, there's a lot of family drama.
I tried to strike up a tentative relationship with my long estranged sister a few months ago. Until she decided I wasn't being sympathetic enough about her menopausal symptoms (hot flashes) and informed me in no uncertain terms that I simply don't know what it's like and can't possibly understand what it's like to "live with a health condition". Yeah. Because apparently MS is nothing compared to menopause. And now we're not speaking again. I forgot what a self absorbed little bitch she is. Didn't take her long to remind me...
My ancient Chihuahua died of oral cancer last year-- it wasn't the kidney failure that got him but a very fast moving cancer instead. My Gidget (terrier/Chihuahua mix) has proven to be a fabulous bouncy little replacement and she makes me laugh every day. My other two dogs are good dogs too. Colton (boston terrier) sleeps in laundry baskets like a cat, and Chloe (black pug) just shares her hair... everywhere.
That's the short version of what's going on in my world. But I think I've got drama enough to tide me over, LOL.
