I don't normally post on a Saturday, but today I'm feeling particularly vulnerable. The Miller Family reunion is this weekend and I'm missing it. I've only been absent from two other family get-togethers in my life: Oe was when I had to take my comprehensive final for my graduate degree and one was when my teenage son was away from home and the reunion site was geographically far away from him. Parents will understand that issue.

This year doesn't include a life-altering exam nor parental separation. This, the year of the VIRUS, makes us all a bit selfish I want so badly to be there in Princeton, WV, with my aunts, uncle, parents, and one brave cousin. Unfortunately, multiple sclerosis leaves my non-immune system a hot spot for any potential virus fears. And, it's not only me.  If I come into contact with it, my son and husband will also be at risk upon my return. It's just nor fair to any of us.

But, hey, life is not fair. We know that. If life was fair MS would not exist, Covid 19 would not exist, cancer wouldn't exist...

If life was fair I would be sitting on the porch with my family right now instead of at my computer.

If life was fair, those dirty dishes in the kitchen would already be clean.

So, rather than moping about, I need to get productive today, kind of like the MS Warrior in this article below: 

Mother of 2 Says Personal Accountability Is Her MS Mission

In fact, today feels like a good day to write another book!

Have a good weekend,

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

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

A new Church of Go novel

I've been dragging my feet, literally and figuratively, missing my self-imposed deadline of May 1 for completing second round revisions of my newest book Praise Petals ; therefore I'm taking a little break from blogging until Monday, May 1.  Please accept this preview of the said novel as an apology: THE PRAISE PETALS: A Church of Go Novel                                                                                                      44,068 words CHAPTER ONE Snarky. If a word existed to describe Lilly Jenkins, “snarky” would be a top contender. According to Webster, snarky means “crotchety; snappish; sarcastic and irreverent.” In other words, Lilly. Besides, “snarky” was fun to say. And since there was nothing fun about Lilly, the ir
