it takes a village...



my world is spinning, quite literally. my MS is back and rearing it's ugly head full-force. this time is the first where i feel like it's actually disrupting my life. the fact that the weather is perfect is making it all the more difficult to be cooped up. lucky for me, my mom hopped on a plane this morning and is on her way to save me! and on her birthday! there's a good chance she's dragging me and the kids across the country on her return to pennsylvania, so i may disappear for a while. getting a good long rest is something that requires some serious effort when you're raising two youngins!

and if you feel bad for me, you can donate to stevie's fund for the MS bike tour (which i still fully intend to participate in, and for which i've already met my fundraising goal).

i feel your pain. with the heat come bouts of spinning, electricity in my legs, and a general inability to use my freaking hands. this is yet another reason i hate the george and why, yes, i also hang out in my underroos whenever possible. glad you are going to be getting some much needed RandR! it sure is nice when mom comes to town.. and when she steals you away and takes you home.

Liz,

I'm so sorry. That really sucks. You will be in our prayers. Wish I lived closer cause I would love to take those cute kids for you as much as you needed.

So sorry to hear about the current fight with MS! Sounds miserable. Your mom is awesome that she is willing to fly out to help! I hope you go back to PA and fall in love and move back (so that you're there when I do that).

Did you take that photo? It's awesome!

Lizzie, I DO feel bad for you! That has to just be miserable, stupid MS. How sweet of your mom though to come to the rescue! I know she's coming and everything, but I make a mean enchilada if you want me to bring dinner by. In fact, I'd love to do it!

I am sorry hun! When you are here though let me and Colby know and we can come take the kids for a day. I am sure Nash and Brendan would have a blast together!!

How great for your mom to come! I am so sorry that you aren't feeling well. I wish I was close by to help. I will be in July, but are you going to be gone now? You better not be. Emery and Sage will be so sad (oh, and me too!)

I'm sorry to hear things are so bad right now. I'm glad your mom was able to come out. I hope things get better soon. ---If you read this and feel like responding. I was wondering if you know if the Hallmark Movie The five People you Meet in Heaven was filmed at Kennywood? there is a shot in the movie that looks like your picture on this post. Just wondering. Love you lots and hope you are feeling better very soon...

Oh Lady, I'm sorry to hear that you're in pain. And at the beginning of Summer! Your Mom sounds like a dear for flying out to help, what a gem. I hope things calm down a bit for you and that you start feeling the up and up! I'll send many good vibes your way...
