Friends New Home, Slow Motion With MS, and Two Days Until the Walk
Posted Apr 16 2010 12:00am
Went to look at a friends house today, he's a builder, so he's building it himself, makes sense to me. First time I've seen his work, not too shabby. I was giving him a hard time about how much nicer it was than my house, telling him even his refrigerator was cooler than mine. We don't live that far apart, 5 or 6 miles, but I'm in a community, he's in the country. Told him much I liked the country, just then a herd of deer ran across his property. I don't think we'll be friends anymore?
Noticed something today, I have one speed, slow. When we were down my buddies house, the wife and the friend went down to look at the lower level, a full other living quarters, for the friends mother in law. I didn't go because of the steps, heard it start to rain. Knew our windows were open, so I double timed it outside, it was actually more like 1/16 time for most people, but for, I was flying baby! Paying the price tonight, not sure the legs are still there, unless I try to walk, then I'm aware they are the things dragging behind me. Back hurts a little too, easy day tomorrow.
Two days til the walk, the girl did a great job as team captain, 21 registered walkers. I am going to be there to cheer them off, then clap for them when they finish. I really appreciated it, we are going to the local American legion for a hot dog bonanza and snacks, a small thank you, and a chance for me to spend some time with all of them. My one cousin from PA will be at the college where the walk is, her daughter has a field hockey tournament, I'm looking to seeing them too.
