Hey everybody... Come meet my *other* friend Lisa :)

First of all- A recent picture. Lady and myself alll dolled up for a wedding. I'm the one in the curls ;)

Second of all- an introduction :)

As grateful as I am to have our fabulous Lisa in my life, I want to introduce you all to my other, knows me in real life Lisa, over at Diary of a Mad Comedienne. She's a fantastic Mom to some wonderful kiddos and an amazing voice for social justice.

But more importantly, she's *funny!* Lisa has a gift for comedy and has recently made her big break. Her humour is occasionally adult, but she's delighted to meet my Bloggy friends and would love to take a crack at adding a little humour to your days.

Can you tell that I'm excited? This is day 2....count 'em, T-W-O of me being out of pain. That makes a happy Rolladyke! And a happy Rolladyke tends to post on her blog!

I have PT/Massage on Monday to see if we can get this pain *kept* down this time. Am trying to remind myself that it won't be like when I was little; No big gym with kids all around it on mats working with their individual PTs, no "punishments" when I screamed or cried from the pain... Sometimes the things that get done to kiddos with physical disabilities are downright scary! Necessary, probably... but scary.

(I don't mean to castigate any of the Awesome Moms who read here who have to take their kiddos to PT and make them do therapies. I just had a particulary rough time. I'll elaborate in another post)

I wanted to post a thought I had.... but right now I think I'll just use this post to celebrate being out of pain!


Light, love, and energy (because I have it to spare now)

I'm still here...

Still working away at filing

Still hurting like the dickens- This is now week 3 of the most *monster* flare I have ever had. Have alerted the docs, but there's not a whole lot they can do other than play around with my med dosing, which, I will confess to you, I had been doing already. The benefits and drawbacks of having done this before!

I have a wedding to attend on July 24, and will post pictures of Lady and myself in our finery....

Am at home again, but things, for the moment, appear to be going smoothly....

PS: To the Hoover Mom: It's coming along nicely :) And to a mailbox near you within the next...week? I hope?

Back on the Grid

Took Rolladyke Rambles down for a few days- don't know why, just decided to.

Have still been reading along and commenting with all of you- You're an amazing bunch of folks!!

Summer is in full swing here- Temperatures in the mid to high 20s Celcius. Unfortunately, I'm actually *still* in a lot of pain, and it's getting worse.

Have an appointment on the 16 to see what we can see...

Wishing all of you happy, peaceful summer days

I didn't realise it had been so long....

I've started a summer job, Lady secured her first office job. My education funding is secure, and I'll be seeking counselling in the fall as well as tutoring. I do so dearly want to graduate.

I'm having a really bad pain flare which has lasted since Monday, June 22, and there's no end in sight. Lots of medicine. Just like work is lots of filing.

But things are brighter
