Need vs Want


OMG! He followed me. He never does that.

I am an early riser. I love my crack of dawn time. This is when I stretch, groom the cat, and WRITE. 

Not this morning. My husband, who never gets out of bed before 8AM unless he has an appointment (since his work layoff, compliments of Covid19) arose with me at 6:15 AM and is now reading the paper with the overhead lights fully lit. Of course, he insists on reading articles to me and sharing thoughts about today's news.

How dare he infringe pon my quiet time. I really don't need this attention.

Or, do I?

There is a fine line between need and want. I feel that I need a haircut and a manicure, but do I really? Or do I just want whose grooming pleasures? I don't think there is a factual need for tailored hair and pretty fingernails. No one has ever died from a lack of perfected personal appearance. At least I don't think that's ever happened. 

In fact, the first thing my husband said to me this morning is that my (bedhead) hair looked lovely. I suppose that was worth his inconvenient presence. 

As soon as I finished this blog post and wrote a book review, I kinda missed his company. He retreated to the man cave, leaving me alone in the living room. We'll see each other again when hunger drives him back upstairs.

Never happy, are we?

So, I need to work on a new book, but I want to finish binge-watching my current Netflix series.


Decisions, decisions.

Stay well. Stay positive. Stay home.

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


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.

If you are already prone to this malady, the following information may be dangerous in encouraging this behavior. This writer is not responsible for damages done. As a result of today's blog topic,  my personal couch potato activities are responsible for the lack of yesterday's post. In an attempt to justify my actions, I blame Netflix (in the name of research).  The best way to prove a fact is to test it, right? Yesterday I definitely put Netflix to the test by watching hours of Safe, a one-season Harlon Coben creation that whetted my love for crime/mystery/action-based entertainment. Harlon Coben is an American author whose work I have enjoyed immensely over the years,  discovering Safe as Coben's break out into film became that much sweeter when The Five caught my attention another series of his own. I will finish The Five today (unless some saves me) so that I can
