I am 60, have MS, am an avid cook, love making candles (soy) and watching the endless parade of Nature outside my home. I treat the MS with supplements and LDN, I do not use any of the C.R.A.B. MS meds, we don't get along well. I was married for 13 years, we were together for 15. We are now divorced. Sad, that. I do still love him, but ONLY as the father of my baby. Better to keep it civil, hurts the child(ren) less that way, but is oh-so-hard to do sometimes.

Thanksgiving & stuff(ing)

Well we had a very nice Thanksgiving. I made a chicken instead of a turkey, I found a huge 7 lb roaster so I made that. It was fab! I also made sausage stuffing, from scratch, and yams, and gravy...all in all there was ample yummy for everyone's tummy! This morning the guys demolished the rest of the stuffing and gravy, I have the leftover yams to look forward to (good thing I like yams!) and a wee bit of chicken, that is unles they get to it first LOL
It is cold here, but then again it IS almost December! We are not all too trusting of the furnace in this place so we shut it off most of the time, run it for a bit in the morning to warm the house then shut it off and maintain the warmth with a couple of space heaters. This part of the house is SO drafty, there is always a "breeze" somewhere and there is a lot of Winter left before it gets warm again. We'll make it through, I do wish we had a few more space heaters, though...
Rob's 40th Birthday is Monday! My "old man" is getting old! (not really, he's still a spring chicken compared to this old hen)
My MS has been quiet, except for last week, I fell on Friday, outside on the sidewalk, banged my face up pretty badly. I looked like I had been in a fight, had quite the shiner! I am a quick healer so I'm already pretty much recovered, except for some pain in my shoulder where I put out my hand to stop my fall (unsuccessfuly) and my eyelid is still a bit droopy, I hit with my left knee and my right eye, square on the sidewalk...Thank G-D the cement cushioned my fall!!! I fell so fast that I don't really know if I just fell or tripped, the sidewalk there is very broken and uneven so that is the more likely of the two...But other then that little contretemp I've been doing quite well. Had a bit of an exascerbation a few weeks ago, mostly to do with my right side, but that seems better now. That was stress related.
On a good note George has decided against selling or demolishing the house, at least for now, of course he isn't making any improvements, either, so he's going to have to fish or cut bait soon or the house Will fall down, no big bad wolf required.
The trains last night were horrid, both Rob and I missed hours of sleep because of them! I can't WAIT to move, of course we're still trying to find a place to move TO, but that will happen, we have some possibilities we're hoping for.
'Nuff for now...
