Obsessed is the Prompt of the Day

The singly driven people of the Daily Post would like our art to be based on the word “Obsessed” for today.

What has Me Obsessed?

Memories of the mountains in Colorado, where we used to live.  That and the two cats we had adopted from a humane society while in the Chicago-metro area.  Took both animals along with us for our adventures in CO.  Miss those two so much it hurts!  Their spirits have followed us through many different states of this country.

My husband says he still sees both of the animals.  I only see the one I picked out to be adopted.  That one comes around whenever I am feeling sick or really sad.  Wish I could convince him to beat up the cat we adopted after he passed away, since it likes to bite and claw me!

If you have any suggestions on how to keep the cat from using me as his personal chew toy, All you need to do is fill out the form below:

All suggestions will be read by me personally.  Thank you for your helpful advice!

Have you ever felt possessed and did something you shouldn’t have done?

Please Help Fight Demonic Disease

The medicine my neurologist prescribed for me to treat my multiple sclerosis is called Tysabri. Trying to find the actual cost on the internet is basically nearly impossible. I remember when I first started on the drug the amount the facility tried charging me was well over $2500. There was no way my husband and I could afford that then or every 28 days! Biogen (the company that manufactures the drug) has been helping us with some of the cost of the drug, but will not continue helping indefinitely.

“Maybe” is the Prompt for the Day

The indecisive humans at the Daily Post division of Word Press chose the word “Maybe” to be the prompt for the day.

Do You Mean Yes or No?

You either agree or disagree.  Make a stand for once by sticking to your decision.  The world will respect you more for being able to make your mind up!

How do you feel around people who can’t make up their own minds?

Growing up I always knew right where my goals where.  That made it a lot easier to make a decision!  Now that I seem to be literally losing my mind due to health issues, I have trouble making good decisions in life.

Fortunately, I married a wonderful man years ago that has stuck with me through both the good times and the bad times.  Yeah we argue a lot, but who doesn’t enjoy a good argument?  There was no debate team in the school where I grew up, or I would have been their star competitor!  I’d argue with a fence post, if it actually had the ability to speak.  Get that tendency from my Grandfather.  So you could say I inherited it naturally.

Prompt for the Day: “Stubborn”

The people at the Daily Post group of Word Press must really know me well, because they chose the word “Stubborn” for us to create works of art representing the word itself.

It Comes Naturally to Me!

Take after my mom’s father.  He was too stubborn to go peacefully when he had problems breathing due to emphysema.  Could have been from his career as an sailor with the U.S. Navy, or from his addiction to cigars, who knows.  He lived through lots of other types of cancer like lung, skin, and others that I forget!

He and my Uncle Jimmy Jones used to have a bet on who would die first.  Unfortunately, (or fortunately) Grandpa won.  Uncle Jimmy had to attend grandpa’s funeral barely able to stand up to visit the casket.  Few years later, Uncle Jimmy Jones passed on.

If you would like to contact me, all you have to do is fill out the form below:

All responses will be read by me!

Have been headstrong ever since I was born.  Would ague with a fence post if it actually had the ability to speak!  Used to drive the teachers in grade school nuts, because I always made sure I had proof of what I was saying on hand to back up my arguments.  Doubt they expected a small child would be that versed in the fine art of arguing!

Do you enjoy a good debate?

Prompt for the Day: “Slowly”

The editors at the Daily Post division of Word Press must be laughing at how slow movement occurs in my life these days, so they chose the word “Slowly” to have us base our art works for the day around.

Movement Using A Wheelchair

With me tends to be slow for safety reasons!  Have ran over my own toes before.  Didn’t feel to good.  Black and blue big toe for months over that stupid move.

Throw our dorky cat into the mix and his tail gets run over more often than not.  Even when I yell “move” to warn him I am coming through, he leaves his tail exposed on the floor!  How stupid is the animal if he can’t figure out he needs to get out of the way?

Any suggestions on how to manoeuvre safely using a manual wheelchair, would be greatly appreciated!  Contact me by completing the form below:

Thanks in advance for all your helpful suggestions!

Have tried training the cat using a squirt bottle filled with water, he just runs away and sulks after getting a little wet!  No idea how to teach the animal that I just have his safety in mind when asking him to move out of the way of my wheelchair wheels.  He is terrified of my electric wheelchair, so no problem with his tail getting run over with that device.  The only problem is that my electric chair doesn’t fit in our house.

Prompt for the Day: “Craving”

The obviously weak people at the Daily Post division of Word Press gave in to their “Craving” of using the word for the daily prompt.

Music First

K.D. Lang sang the song “Constant Craving” while I was at the end of high school.

Life Next

You have to ignore your personal cravings each day!  Whether it be for illegal or completely legal substances.  Face it, too many Americans eat way too much junk food each day!  Feed yourself on natural foods that you put together yourself, life will be more enjoyable and a heck of a lot healthier.

It takes a lot of will power to overcome the longing for the items you are trying to shun from your life!  You can do it, if you really try.  What cravings do you personally fight each day?

As a former alcoholic, I know what quitting the addiction feels like.  Started drinking my freshman year at college.  Left home alone to attend school in a different state of the U.S.A. at the wise old age of 17.  Got hooked on Bacardi Rum.  Wasn’t until after I got to the end of my sophomore year, I realized that it had became a problem!  Quit drinking over a three day weekend when all my room mates where out of town.  That way I had the suite to myself.  No one else would need to get into the bathroom as I went through the with drawl stage.  Threw up too many times to count.  Dry heaves were the worst!

Prompt for the Day: “Muse”

The people in charge of the dictionary at the Daily Post group of Word Press accidentally turned the ‘M’ section of the book and had their fingers get stuck on the word “Muse“.

The Creature I Use as My Muse

Appears all over my web sites and postings.  His name is Tennyson.  Unfortunately, he passed away back in November of 2010.  We were living in a crappy apartment in Hastings at the time.  His spirit followed us when we moved to different floor of the same building.  Over a year later we relocated to a house we purchased in a completely new city.  His ghost still checks in on me on a regular basis!  Wish his form would knock some sense into the kitten we adopted at the beginning of December 2010.  The devil likes to use me as a teething device!

Have any advice on how to break a cat from biting?

No need to fear!  We do not ever hit the animal.  Squirting with water is how we normally train all the cats we have adopted, before.  Just doesn’t seem to be working with our latest member of the family, for some unknown reason.

Prompt for the Day: “Profound”

The deep people at the Daily Post division of Word Press want us to create works of art illustrating the concept of the word “Profound“.

Been Long Time Since Was Profound!

These days I am lucky to remember what day it actually is!  If it wasn’t for my pill cases that have the day on them, I would be totally confused.  If I had the intelligence to look at my phone, it has the day and date as well as the time on it.  Am very thankful for my stupid phone!  Do not ever want to be cursed with a smart phone like my husband has.  Would both confuse ans distract me too much!

My phone handles all the necessary tasks a phone should perform.  It makes and receives calls and basic texts.  What more do you need or want?

If you would like to contact me, all you have to do is simply fill out the attached form:

All responses will be read by me personally!  Thank you for the time it took to complete the form.

Do you remember back when all we had where land line telephones that where wired at a central phone company?  Now days, everyone has cell phones!  Even my parents who live out in the middle of nowhere southern Illinois.  The land lines there are still unreliable!  Calling that number is a hit and miss sort of operation.  Sometimes the phone rings in the house, sometimes at the neighbour’s house, sometimes it disappears off into la-la land!  Then they have to open a ticket with the phone company, who may be out in a few months if they are lucky.

Prompt for the Day: “Apology”

The defensive people at the Daily Press division of Word Press want us to create works of art based on the word “Apology“.

Seems My Life Needs Apology for Even Existing

Why do I waste the air I breathe in each second of every day I exist on this miserable planet?  The mere water I drink could be better used to grow food for other creatures on this celestial body called Earth.  Am protective of young kids and defenceless animals.  My subsistence should not interfere with other creatures here at all!

Ever feel like you live a pointless life?

  I used to handle the network traffic for major companies, including the U.S.A. Department of Homeland Defence, but am no longer able to handle those types of positions due to being confined to a wheelchair by a disease known as multiple sclerosis.  Miss the daily challenges of telling data packets not only where to go, but also how to get there!

Prompt for the Day: “Admire”

The dreamers from the Daily Post division of Word Press dreamed of drooling over our creations embodying the word “Admire” for today.

Things I Treasure

Places:

Basically the entire state of Colorado.

Our house here in St. Paul, Minnesota.  After a few modifications I can come and go as I please with the wheelchair ramp that was installed for us by the wonderful people with www.ramps.org  Still need to remodel the upstairs bathroom so that I will be able to take a shower without needing assistance from my husband, but we have it planned to be funded by the returns from our taxes this coming year.

Is there somewhere you personally admire?

People:

Obviously the man I married over 20 years ago!

Friends and other family members back where I grew up.

Friend from my first real job in networking while still attending college.  We have kept in contact even after I resigned from the company to accept a position with a major networking firm located in a different state.  She actually literally ended up saving my life, when I called her to tell her good-bye one last time because I was going to commit suicide.  Her husband contacted the police where I lived to come take me away to be locked up in a mental hospital.  She kept me on the phone as long as she could, making me promise to write my mate a long letter.

Prompt for the Day: “Unstoppable”

The fierce people at the Daily Post division of Word Press want us to create works of art that make the word “Unstoppable” pop into the viewer’s mind.

Maybe We Should Look at U.S. Marine Swat Teams?

The vehicles they deploy can withstand just about anything that exists on Earth.  The soldiers themselves have undergone extensive training preparing them for the worst climates imaginable.  Starting with uncoordinated young recruits they work them into ferocious professional devil dogs!

They took my fat baby brother who had more tits than I did in when my mom forced me to start wearing bras when I was little and turned him into a bench pressing fighter who went over seas to defend our country!  They toughened him up to become a great father for his two kids.  He now manages a store in southern Texas, where he has been faced with a gun man trying to break into his store location.  Didn’t even faze my baby brother, he had seen worse as a Marine!
