This is a game I’ve loved to play for the last decade.  I’ve played with online friends, real friends, and my mom! I havent played since 2008 and decided to tackle it again to battle my cognitive difficulties due to Fibromyalgia. Yesterday, LOL, i doubled up on my Lyrica because my legs had those “shooting pains” that feel like hot pokers are being shoved in my hips and thighs. Anyway, I was pretty loopy and lost 3 long games to my 62-year-old mom! She reminded me that age isn’t a handicap, but a … whats the word…shit. Well anyway, were playing again today and she’s kicked my butt twice, but the score was WAY closer so far. I had forgotten how much strategy it takes for correct letter placement and remembering what words the computer will allow. I play on Yahoo Games using Amish Donkey backdoor site, (which is a great thing)! I also love to play online backgammon against the computer…which always rolls double sixes to win LOL!

I used to spend my time immersed in other peoples drama, friends, family, and I find that I’m just better off if I deal with my own “inner drama”, you know, the crap you think about that you never tell anyone about, inner dialogue. It’s so much easier to deal with myself without sorting through all the clutter which used to be my life.

Well, I’m feeling pretty decent today which is nice. I plan on enjoying this mundane day to the fullest and life is good!

Today is a bland and blah day. I slept in till 9 am, that was awesome. My daycare babies showed up at 9:30am, full of chatter and smiles! I watch a friends children M-F , a 2-year-old boy “Shilo”, and a 5-year-old girl “Sierra”. They are totally adorable and make me laugh, make me move, and let me remember how important living is. Somedays I just soak in their innocence and youth. I’ve never watched so much Spongebob Square Pants, Dora the Explorer, Big Big World, etc 🙂 Yesterday it was beautiful outside, we played ‘parachute pinecones’, tie a Wal-Mart bag on the bottom of a pine cone, throw it up in the air and oh what fun when the parachute opens! We had big fun 🙂 I hurt like heck later in the evening but it was worth it, totally.

I’m having a good time figuring out how WordPress Blog works, there are so many gadgets and settings and ways to personalize my blog. It’s just what I was looking for in a blog, so far.  More later!
