I won't complain about the weather again!

Today was an absolutely gorgeous day here. The high was in the low 70's. The morning had no breeze (unheard of here), so sitting at the patio table felt wonderful. Then, my husband informs me were supposed to get SNOW next week! WHAT?! No flipping way! I want SPRING to stay. I'm tired of the snow and the COLD. I want to be able to sit on my patio, basking in the sunlight without a heavy coat on! Waaa Waaa Waaa.

Then I read Wendy's latest entry http://wendybooker.wordpress.com I'll never complain about the cold again. Imagine waking up and having your sleeping back covered with ice particles and the clothes you washed the night before, frozen solid! She actually sleeps with her tent flap OPEN.....at 16 degrees!

Wendy isn't eating enough (They require 8000 calories A DAY). She's having a tough time swallowing. I hope she is able to eat better soon and this doesn't become something that stops her mission.

Her experience is an amazing thing to read about. The more I read the higher my level of respect for her goes. I have a tough time just getting out of bed in the morning. I can't imagine how she does it. One of the questions I have for her is how she battles MS fatigue! I know when I get tired my balance is even worse than "normal" and if I push myself I'm in bed the next day. How on earth is she able to push her body to such limits. I can't wait to ask her the questions!

If you have a few minutes, read her blog. She is one amazing lady!

Hi,
It has been awhile since I visited many blogs.
Decided to do a quick visit to say hello to as many blogs as possible tonight..
Nice to visit your blog its been ages, I am sure it will not be so long again especially now my life is getting better.
I went out this afternoon for the first time since 19 August 2009 and it was brilliant.
Lovely to feel my world getting bigger again after all this time in bed.
Have a good evening and a pleasant day tomorrow.
Love,
Herrad
