New friends on old roads

One of the great things about riding a motorcycle is the new friends we make. People with motorcycles in a driveway

I kept my MS cooled down with ice pacs – they fit anywhere! Great way to spend the Labour Day off!

Bang up in our driveway

So today is day 3 of a headache. Those who get migraines know that it can make your peripheral vision off.

I had an accident in my driveway today.

Chris moved a trailer on the outside of his truck on the left to beside me on the outside or far right.

I remember him doing that Monday night I thought, I stayed home tues and I think I remember him turning my car around so I could drive the car straight out yesterday.

Today I had to back out.

I forgot and did not see the grey trailer on this grey day and my right front bumper hit the side of the trailer with a good wack.

Now you have to remember that I am pretty much deaf.

So I heard a bang but could not figure where it was coming from.

I did apologize profusely, and gave him big hug and say I was sorry again when I got home…..

Then I saw the trailer, I had cracked the grey wheel fender and bent it, the man says he has to check the axle- meanwhile I popped out right front light on the car.

I kinda put the car back together this morning enough to make it to work.

When I said it was “kinda like LEGO” tonight while he was putting it back together in a far more secure way- he said – ” it’s a bit more complicated than LEGO “.

He didn’t really remember that I tend to giggle during times of major drama, heightened emotions – in appropriate response is an MS thing….so when I was telling Amanda what happened I giggled…

So fortunately the sun came out.

How was your day?

Where did I put my sense of humour??

Dog on skateboard You know the feeling, someone looks at you, they said something funny, and your funny haha muscle is flatlined. You know it is funny, but the giggle or laugh just ain’t happening.

Now I know this challenge is more prominent in November, so it is important for those with a flattening haha to make sure we get lots of indoor light. Step 1 -when you get up in the morning stand under a 100 watt bulb for 20 minutes if you can, and focus on happy thoughts. Read the comics, pet the dog or cat, and if 20 minutes isn’t long enough, go longer. Your desire to laugh and be cheerful is more important than 10 cents worth of electricity.
Smile at yourself in the mirror. I KNOW! YOU ARE SO GOOD LOOKING!! Seriously, how could you forget that???  Read humorous blogs – there are so many out there!!  You will be amazed at what you can start laughing at if you try.  Being cheerful and of good cheer takes discipline and focus.

Exercise is also important – if like me, going out in the evening is not really going to happen, then grab some weights or cans of soup and start pumping while watching TV.  So, by writing this down, maybe I will remember to do these things myself!!  I am sorry, I don’t know where the picture came from, it looked cute, and I appreciate whomever shared it.
