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. If you would like to contribute to my fight against this mind stealing disease, please contribute by visit my personal website at http://saintpblogging.com/wp/ and seeing the copies of my writings located 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: “Desert”

The thirsty people at the Daily Post group of Word Press must have been looking for the nearest oasis when they chose the word “Desert” for our daily prompt!

Used to Live in a Semi Arid Location

There were extreme water restrictions in the neighbour hoods.  Could only water the lawns on predetermined days.  The city of Aurora, Colorado left us begging for a decent rain during the warm months.  Once the cooler weather hit, it began to snow!  No rain, just lots of snow.  Once we had survived the winter, got hit with spring hail storms!  It hailed so much, they had to send the snow plows out to clean hail of the roads.  Then got a freak late season blizzard of snow!  Several feet causing complete white out driving conditions.  Talk about weird weather conditions!

The thought of trying to live in an actual desert scares me.  Have enough problems with constant dry skin and dry eyes, can’t imagine what life in an actual desert must be like!

If you would like to contact me, simply fill out the form below:

All replies will be read by me, personally!

The thought of living in a place that goes without rainfall to me would be a huge fire risk!  Most vegetation needs water to exist day to day.  Guess that is why cacti are so popular there.  Tried growing an Aloe Vera plant once in high school.  It didn’t like getting over watered, so I stopped watering it!  It actually grew into the window sill I had it resting on.  So apparently lack of water does not harm the plant.

Prompt for the Day: “Tourist”

The homebodies from the Daily Post group of Word Press want us to create works of art based in the word “Tourist” today.

Loved Playing Tourist

While I lived in Lombard (Chicago suburb) for 18 months and then when we moved to Colorado.  There were so many exciting places to explore.  Chicago offers many great museums and wonderful public transportation via the train systems.  Colorado lacked transportation services, but made up for it with the beautiful mountain scenery!

Used a wheelchair only when necessary while we lived in both places.  Glad I didn’t become confined to a wheelchair permanently until after we moved away from both places.  Here in MN, they have great transportation for the handicapped via a service known as Metro Mobility.  That service has a specially designed bus / van? that picks you up at the door you specify and delivers you to the front door of your designation.  If you request it, they return to take you back home after you finish your outing.

If you would like to contact me personally, all you have to do is fill out the form below.  I will read and respond to each submission.

Look forward to your comments and or suggestions!  This home body likes to stay in our safe handicap accessible home near my great neighbors!  Would like it even better if it was winter, but at least we have decent air conditioning.  Spring, Summer, and Fall tend to be too warm for my health!

Prompt for the Day: “Companion”

The apparently extroverted people at the Daily Post division of Word Press seem to think everyone needs a partner in crime, so they chose the word “Companion” for us to focus today’s creation of various forms of artistry.

Main Companion is My Husband

He is there beside me through all the horrors in my life.  He goes with me for all important medical appointments.  He even takes me to the most dreaded place of all, the hospital I go to to have my M.R.I.s taken.  Because I have to have general anaesthesia administered to be able to go through the horrible machine.

My husband is also responsible for creating my latest addiction: riding motorcycles!  We have a 2007 Honda Goldwing with a trailer that can pull my wheelchair along with us for the ride.  This enables us to get off the bike safely and stretch our legs out when needed!  Face it, everyone needs to make a call of nature periodically!  Have to find a handicap accessible rest room for my use.  Enjoy drinking water too much for my bladder’s own good.

Animal Tag-Alongs

Had two faithful cats we adopted years ago.  I picked out the one I wanted, he took the animal’s brother to live with us.  Tennyson, (my black kitten) survived travelling through many states with us.  The longest stretch of residency occurred when we lived in Colorado.  The two brother’s played on the cat tower we had purchased for them unendingly!  They used to fight over who go the top of the tower when we first got it, but then my cat discovered the hiding place near the bottom.  He used to curl up inside and sleep undisturbed until his brother caught on to where he was.  Shortly after moving in we added a humming bird feeder to the back yard.  That distracted his brother to no end!  Now my cat could take a decent nap when needed!

His cat died a few years before mine passed on.  So mine had to survive all alone when we moved to Minnesota.  The place we moved to at first was a hideous apartment complex.  My cat only suffered through two gruelling years there before he passed away.  My husband still sees both animals even though neither have ever been at our house where we now live.  I only see mine checking in on me when I am not feeling well.

We adopted a single gray kitten the year after mine passed away.  This animal is nothing like our other animals were.  I think he may have a learning disability!  He is that hard to get to understand simple concepts, like DO NOT get under my wheelchair tires.  You would think getting his tail run over would teach him.

Prompt for the Day: “City”

The apparently country born people at the Daily Post group of Word Press wants to be forewarned by our personal takes on the word “City“.

Music First!

Song was written by artist Glenn Frey of the Eagles.  Was used as the theme song for the T.V. show “Miami Vice”

Personal Thoughts Next

Grew up in the middle of nowhere southern Illinois.  Cities were a foreign entity to me as a child.  Knew everything about everyone in the tiny area in which I lived.  Knew that one of our neighbors (few fields away) smoked marijuana.  Played with his kids periodically, since we went to school and rode the bus together.  Getting far away was a constant desire of mine.

Wanted to get away and earn a decent education far away as possible.  Unfortunately, the scholarship I won was for a college (thankfully in another state) that was only a few hours by car trip away from the dreaded place in which I grew up!  Was a bigger city than I was used to residing in, but not as big as I was dreaming of.

After completing college, moved with my husband back to the state in which I grew up, but in the Chicago-metro area this time!  Had finally made it to a big city!  Only lasted there for 18 months due to the high taxes and cost of gas there.  Relocated to the Denver Colorado area.  Another big city to reside in.  We actually only lived in a suburb called Aurora, but it was a beautiful place to live with great neighbors!  Stayed there for a little over 7 years.

Moved many more times with varying degrees of success.  Now we have permanently resettled to a state capital city of Minnesota.  Have no plans of relocating ever again, since this is the perfect city for me to live out the rest of my life in!

Prompt for the Day: “Rebuild”

The people apparently from America’s reconstruction era of our country’s history want us to concentrate all of our artistic talents on the word “Rebuild” for today.

Have No Desire to Reconstruct My Life

The life I had while we lived in Colorado is long in the past.  Miss the people we knew there, but they have also moved on and away from the location.  People in that state now have changed both in religions and number of immigrants to our country (some legal, but too many not legally living here in America).

Went through too many trials to get to the point my husband and I are now in.  Here and Now, we are living in a handicap accessible home (have to redo the upstairs bathroom, but that will happen after the next year’s tax returns come in).  Just have to be patient and wait for it to come!

Have started growing fresh tomatoes in garden boxes.  Have not tried growing anything since the straw berries in CO.  They were unsuccessful, but that may have been from the inhospitable growing environment.  Even the grass (you know the stuff that grows on the ground naturally in most paces) we tried to nurture there did not grow as planed!
