The Spoon Theory- An insight into Amanda

This is something I read a while ago, and it really hit the spot for me. This is how I live my life on a daily basis. This theory and the wisdom of my grandfather who spent time as a POW is what has given me the ability to get through life, not matter how painful it is. My Grandpa liked to say (in much nicer words) if you had a problem that could be fixed, then damn well fix it. If you can't fix it then, the pick your butt up and deal.

I have lived my life doing exactly that...If I can't do anything about the problem, then I just pick my ass up and just deal. That isn't saying dealing will be easy....most days I have no more spoons left to deal, but I have to find every last spoon I might be hiding and keep on going. If it wasn't for these theory's I wouldn't have made it nearly as far as I have in life.

The next time you hear me say I am too tired, or sore to go out, or to eat-- think about this--- how many spoons have you used up today?

And No I do not have Lupus. I have Fibromyalgia, hypermobility, 4 sleep disorders as well as many other issues.

I hope you all read this, to help you get a little insight into what I deal with on a daily basis.

New Baby

For all of you not yet informed, our baby was born 1-30-07 at 9:12 am. He, yes HE was 8 .04 lbs and 21 and 3/4 inches long. Since it was in unexpected turn of events to have a boy, we have not picked out a name yet. 16 hours of labor with 3 hours of pushing! He didn't much want to come out, he had to be turned a couple of times to get him out!

Stolen froom my hubby

Like Jima, I grant anyone the right to skip questions. Just don't skip all of them, that'd be a bit silly.

1. Who are you?
2. When and how did we meet?
3. What do you think of me?
4. What's the fondest memory you have of me?
5. Physically, what stands out?
6. Emotionally, what stands out?
7. On a scale of 1-10, how hot am I?
8. Am I loveable?
9. Describe me in 3 words:
10. What was your first impression?
11. Do you still think that way about me now?
12. What do you think my weakness is?
13. Do you think I'll get married?
14. What makes me happy?
15. What makes me sad?
16. What reminds you of me?
17. Do you think I could kill someone?
18. Are you going to put this on your journal and see what I say about you?

(no subject)

If you woke up and I was in bed with you, what would be your first thought?

(Now post this in your LJ and find out what mine would be)

OK, so I figured I should probbly post somthing... I haven't posted anything in ages up here. Things are going rather blah these days. The house is still on the market, 3.5 months later still no offers. Still no news on the job front, been looking hard, had lots of interviews but no job. We had Jima's B-day party this weekend... well that was wild/interesting..some pictures will be up at some point, must weed through the inapropriate druken ones first :p. Hopefully we will sell the house and I will find a job soon. We have a new house lined up in Lakeville when our house sells, a much bigger house in a nice area and the offer has been excepted so we are just waiting for the house to sell till we can move. I can't wait! I am so sick of Faribault. On a more anoying note, we woke up to the furnace not working at 5:30 this morning, we had to have a repair guy come out and fix it :( 150 bucks later the house is warm again :). I suppose that is all the news that I have for now. More later.
