I’m not in a hole….. still got my head above water

Well, as most of you know I haven’t posted in a while, but for good reasons…. mostly. lol

I’m very concerned for my friend Ray who has the brain HUGE Brain tumor.  He is an amazing spray paint artist and I’ve bought some of his works before (also have bought some from my friend Benjamin who is another amazing artist who is struggling with the early onset of Parkinson’s Disease… check out his blog too)

Lately, I finally found my dream house and amazingly enough convinced my husband to buy it even thought it was about $50,000 more than the budget, but I just love it!  Of course on MOVING DAY, I was in a pretty bad wreck about 9:00 am so I pretty much missed the move due to my anxiety attack and shock.  It’s sorta scary to just let guys do all the moving… lol, but most of it managed to get here without too much trouble.   OH, the refrigerator wouldn’t fit in it’s designated spot cuz the cabinets weren’t level and one side was about 1/4″ lower than the other stopping us from hooking it up and sliding it back.  THEN, my washer and dryer refused to leave my old house, (the couldn’t get them undone.  I guess they fused to the house thinking they belonged there) SO, I ended up having to go buy a new washer and dryer set.  (That wasn’t in my budget either : ( but oh well)

It took almost 3 weeks to get my car out of the shop cuz there was so much damage! It’s truly a miracle that no one was seriously hurt. (A little girl who just turned 16 about 4 months before, ran a stop sign turning left and I was going straight..ugh.  I will admit, I felt sorry for her cuz that corner does have a blind spot where she wouldn’t have been able to see me coming)

Three days after the wreck, my mother had another small stroke, and then another the next day and 3 the day after that. My little sister who is a cardiac nurse from North Carolina kindly came down and helped keep me sane.

Anyway… enough of my boring life… I just thought I’d reblog for Ray so that maybe they would get some more donations or sales, and also that I would post some of my latest pictures.  Remember they are just raw cuz my computer is too old for me to buy the programs I wanted to play around with. Oh well… guess we just can’t have everything.

Oh, did find out that you may remember last year that my insurance premium more than doubled… it still is this year plua I still have co-pays and I still have to pay $250 per visit to my cancer doctor.  That’s annoying cuz I didn’t have to pay anything at all 2 years ago. (Obamacare is killing me… I hope it’s helping some of you, cuz it’s really killing me.  My medications do not go toward my deductible or my Out of Pocket, it’s just rediculous, that money doesn’t fall from the trees to pay all that. No, it comes OUT OF MY POCKET, but it’s still not as far as they’re concerned.  Okay, enough complaining about that.  There is nothing I can do about it, but hope and pray the cancer doesn’t come back. I asked my DR. if I could only come once a year, but he said no, it hasn’t been 5 years yet. : (

Okay… not the pictures… Oh Benjamin, if you read this, that beautiful original I bought from you is ubove my mantle and looks great.  I think I have a picture of that somewhere too.

Blessilngs to all and I’ll try to get around and read your blogs just as soon as I can!  I promise…

Another Seizure:
On Friday the 13th (I know,.. right) I had a seizure that lasted for 2 hours, caused by this brain tumor, as many of you are now aware of.  It landed me in the ER for quite some time and most of it I do not remember.  Which is probably best.

One funny thing I do remember though; as the seizure started I was alert and when the EMT / Ambulance staff arrived they said to me “Sir, can you please hold still so I can get an IV in?”   This actually made me laugh out loud and still does :)

So, up until today, and still a tad bit so, I am dealing with partial paralysis on my right side which is temporary I am told and called Todd’s Paralysis.  I have been doing strength training, working on writing and…

True story of Dr. Sayed Intesar

kelihasablog:

It’s always good to be informed on things going on in the world… and it’s good to get perspective from someone more in the know than our media.

Dr. Sayed Intesar is a surgeon. it is his own  persoanl tragic story

16th Dec was a sad day and known for “East Pak debacle”. However, for Pakistani nation from now on it will be remembered for different reasons in general and for many of us in particular. The incident has hurt the nation deep inside which is evident from the response by the masses.

Saima Tariq , my beloved wife was one of victims of this tragedy. She had just joined the school on 5th Nov as teacher. She was an educationist and had taught for16 years in APSACS. On my arrival at Peshawar, Pakistan i was strictly against her teaching job and wanted her to pursue her higher studies which she was already undergoing at City University. In spite of my resistance she forced me change my decision and joined APS Peshawar in order to follow her…

NSA-proof: Putin Gifts China’s President Russian YotaPhone2

kelihasablog:

If you haven’t read any of Lada Ray’s Books , information, or explinations of many “moves” in the political world that we don’t understand, you should definitely check out her Futurist Trendcast or her Lada Ray Blog…

This is part 2 of Russia’s Asia Pivot Sealed: Putin and Xi Jinping Sign New Gas Mega-Deal Via Altai Western Route.

We could all use one!

While in Beijing, Russian President Vladimir Putin presented China’s President  Xi Jinping with Russia’s answer to smartphone, dual-screen YotaPhone2. Rumor has it that Russian politicians, industry executives, and military use this phone because it cannot be broken into by NSA.

In the video, Xi Jinping remarks that it’s a great gift and asks Putin if they’ll also have a deal about YotaPhone2 in addition to the gas deals they’ve signed. Putin assures him that the phone deal is coming.

Butterfly Bows

girl in red dress

Butterfly Bows

Butterfly shadows

mark Crimson hands.

Imprinting Souls

with cuts and bands .

Torn bleeding hearts

now held at bay,

with bright, blood red hands

the butterflies stay.

Words falling gently

off lips and through lies

struggles containing

the absence of Wise.

Woven like ribbons

of satin and silk

the Truth and it’s Freedom

turn sour as milk.

Fright holds the heart

as sanguine blood flows,

from punctures and cracks,

she makes butterfly bows.

I realize this picture doesn’t really go with this poem particularly, but I have apparently deleted the one I was looking for, and I like this one so… there you go.

I wrote this poem about a former student I did some counseling with years ago. She was a cutter, who would cut herself on her body to watch the blood flow out as she thought it was the only way to get the pain from her body.  It was the only thing she felt she was able to, or allowed, to control in her life.   This poem was about how she would make pictures from her bloody hands that looked like butterflies or bows.  I did run into her again a few years later and she had  gone through extensive counseling and was now able to to control those urges. She was writing a book for young teens at that time, that she hoped would help them to understand what they were doing and why. (Don’t ask, I don’t remember the name, sorry)

Yea!!!!  Elections are over, for the most part, for the next year or so perhaps my phone will not burn up with political calls.  No, I never answer them, and I don’t join one party or the other, but I do donate my small amounts to a few of the delegates I liked or agreed with.  Oddly enough, I think the majority of the ones I chose were not even from my state, I just liked them for their character and/or policies.  I’m VERY happy that we got several women in this time, several ex-military and business men who will hopefully be able to break the grid-lock we were suffering under. The Congress was bad mouthed all the time (no, I’m not saying they were perfect, by far…) when in reality they send hundreds of bills over to the Senate and Harry Reid wouldn’t even allow them to come up for a vote, much less get to the President… even if he would have vetoed… he might have considered talking and trying to give a little, take a little… COMPROMISE…  (But, that’s just my opinion and they surely wouldn’t want me in Washington, and I surely wouldn’t ever want to have to do the Presidents job, no matter how much I disagree with his policies. It would be nice if more of them were more open minded though, in my opinion)
