Why Do Daughters Have To Grow Up....

Tonight my daughter went to the Homecoming Dance with her "boy friend".It is her first official dance. All dressed up in beautiful dress, black high heels, hair done, and make up on . She looked perfect , beautiful in fact. My last child is growing up. I remember my two older daughters going to prom. What fun they had. I enjoyed helping them get ready and taking pictures. Then there they go off to the dance. Just like now, it leaves me sitting here wondering , where did the time go? Did I do every thing correct? Was I a good mother? Did I install good morals and values in them raising them? Yes, I believe I did. My two oldest girls are beautiful women and wonderful mothers and my youngest has grown in to a lovely young lady. Yes, I did good, real good.

Labor day weekend

This has been a beautiful weekend. The sun has been shinning, and temps in the 70's. Ahh, my kind of weather. It is really starting to feel like fall. The older I get, the more I love fall. I love the fresh air, the turning of the leaves, the smell of the leaves (even though they aren't good for our allergies). The way they crunch when you walk on them. Fresh air flowing through the windows. Hawkeye football. Go Hawkeye's! Great win yesterday! I try not to think of winter coming right behind fall. Winter and I aren't very good friends. I don't like the cold and snow and did I say cold?? But, there is always a bright side to every thing. The snow is beautiful when it is coming down. I love watching it. So serene. I also love a white Christmas! There is always a flip side to everything. Today I will try to remember that and focus on the positive side of things instead of the negative.

RAIN make more pain..

Why or why does it have to rain........It makes my body hurt so bad! I feel like I've been stuck in a freezer for a couple of days. My joints are as stiff as a starched shirt and moving is just plain painful. Some days I'm so sick of being sick I could scream! I walk around in this aching body every single day and only I know how bad I hurt. I may not show it on my face, but I am not ok.
I complain on here because I'm sure no one else wants to hear my complaints all the time. Truth be known, most people who know me don't really know me. I seem to meet more and more people who have the same complaints as me. They describe their symptoms and they are just like mine. Now THEY know how I feel. It's so much more than just the physical pain...It goes way deeper. It affects your body, mind, spirit. Over active nerve endings pick up every thing 1000 times more than normal. Noise sometimes makes my head feel like it will actually explode! No relief. It makes my head ache. Loud noises and sounds are magnified so much you get nervous because you don't know how much more of it you can take. Sometimes I have to leave a place because I can't take the noise any more. Lights seem so bright you sometimes feel like someone is shinning a flashlight in your eyes. My body feels as if someone wrapped me in plastic wrap and it keeps getting tighter and tighter till I can hardly move any more. I'm really mad at FIBRO right now. It makes me not be able to be me.

Ok, I'm lovin the Italian phrase's from Elizabeth Gilbert's book

Il bel far niente - This means "the beauty of doing nothing" Or
il dolce stil nuovo - which means the "sweet new style"
I love saying Italian words because they sound so fancy and
seem to just slip off your tongue~~~~Try saying - complimenti!
See isn't that just fun?? Even if you don't know what your saying
it is still fun to say!
