22 Days Without a Kitchen

This didn't just begin April 22, 2013. I've beenmentally working on a new kitchen design
since moving into my little stone house eight years ago. When my change jar chi-chinged the magic number, I sped down I-79 to the nearest Lowes to begin the odyssey of my French-inspired
Wine Cafe Kitchen. The template for new counter top was complete, walls painted (after a three week battle of wall-paper removal --- NEVER wall paper if there is any chance at all that it is not a forever thing!), new rugs purchased, vanity clock hung, beautiful sink appliances to match my new chrome appliances,  new wine rack installed...I am READY for my new kitchen.

But my kitchen wasn't ready for me.

Today I am playing hooky once again from work to be at home while installers try to pieced together a counter top that should have only taken about 45 minutes to install the first time.

Because I have no counter top, I have no sink. (That is another horror story in itself, and I promised my husband that I would not dwell on that issue today.) Because I have no sink, I cannot wash dishes. Because I cannot wash dishes, I cannot prepare food. Because I cannot prepare food, my family must consume fast food and expensive take out. Because our diets are screwed up, we gain weight and sprout unsightly blemishes. Because our physical appearance is suffering, we are irritable, gassy, and depressed.

One would think that I am doing major renovation. My kitchen is quite small and my choice of counter top and sink  very simple. WHY is this such a complicated process?

These guys have been here nearly 3 hours and I do not see much progress...other than just another mess to clean up...without a sink.
 This is what it used to look like. Bowling alley green, boomerang design.
This is what is SHOULD look like.

  6. I don't leave a great deal of comments, but i did a few searching and wound up here "22 Days Without a Kitchen". And I actually do have some questions for you if you usually do not mind. Is it just me or does it seem like a few of the comments look like they are left by brain dead folks? :-P And, if you are writing at additional social sites, I would like to keep up with anything fresh you have to post. Could you list of all of all your social pages like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?

CBD and MS

We warriors are a resilient breed. After speaking extensively with a CBD enthusiast over the weekend, i finally bit the bullet and bought the "good" stuff...all in the name of research. Things have changed a bit since my first CBD experience, including the flavor. This particular product comes in natural (an earthy flavor), peppermint (self-explanatory), and cinnamon (Yum!).Because particular brand (Hempworx) has ONLY two ingredients : CDB and hemp seed oil.   I decided to document my experience here, so if any of you are interested we can discuss our personal journeys. As you all know, MS is an expensive condition that requires careful thought to additional treatments and related expenditures, most of which are not recognized by insurance companies and/or medical professionals; so, every experience is a financial gamble. I started my new "treatment" on Saturday, October 26, 2019. The instructions direct you to take two-three drops under the tongue twice a

ABCD...CBD

Week two of my latest MS  extinction adventure.. CBD oil. What exactly is it supposed to do? I'm told that individuals who imbibe in one form or another experience less physical pain and possibly a calming sense of self. Some have also tossed one or more or many to all of their prescribed medications in favor of CBD,  My biggest question is "How do you know which of the table cover of pills do you eliminate?" I am  not much of a dare devil any more and my pocketbook isn't equipped for extensive experimentation. remember I have a college freshman to support. (Oh, and he's doing fine so far; Thanks for asking. More about that later.) It makes the most sense to me to play with the mood maintenance first. I take 50 MG of Sertralin each night before bed. It is fairly good at keeping me on an even keel. I've missed doses before and it becomes crystal, as in clear, after twenty four hours that my system is missing something.                                 

JusT NOT FeeliNg my Best

JUsT not Feeling My BesT It’s one of THOSE days. Foot drop is really P…..g me off. Balance has taken an unexpected vacation. And to top it off, I get to go to every lady’s favorite doctor visit tomorrow morn. Yep. It’s mammo time for Lisa. Yeehaw! Photo by National Cancer Institute on  Unsplash Look at that technician smiling like this is the most fun ev-er. Or is she laughing ‘cause that’s not her mammary being pancaked at early o'clock in the morning? So, with March going out like a lion tonight (71 degrees yesterday, snow forecast tomorrow), this is my April Fools Day gift. Not funny. But, seriously, getting a mammogram is probably one of the most important medical tests. Don’t forget to schedule yours. Because of COVID, mine has been re-scheduled twice. If you have had one of the vaccines, this article may interest you. I had my second vaccine in mid-February, so I think I’m safe to proceed. Doctors urge women to delay mammogram until 4–6 weeks after COVID-19 vaccine https://w
