18days and counting




It is offical...we have 18 days until summer vacation! WOOOHOOOO!


I am warning you that this blog may contain may errors...I apologize. I am using a laptop at school today because they have taken my desktop to fix. The screen on this thing is tiny and hard to read. What is worse is that they have disabled the thing that makes is so I can make the display bigger. Ain't that something?


I am very excited today because I am going to Merlefest this evening to perform with some folks in the community theater group I work with. We are performing scenes from three Wilkes County legends. Tom Dooley ( an annual production), Junior Johnson (Nasacar guy), and Chang and Eng (the Siamese Twins). I am playing one of the sisters who marries Chang and Eng. The people on Jerry Springer had nothing on those people.


This has been a weird week for me. I am having some trouble with my arm. I knew I would have some residual weakness and pain, but it is a bit worse this time than normal. Things like that used to frustrate me a great deal in the early part of my recovery, but now, it doesn't. I just see it as something as normal and the fact that my foot is still weird too. I am just soooo very happy with the person I have become as a result of my stroke, that the physical stuff doesn't get me down. I think Tim Robbins's character in the Shawshank Redemption said it best, "You gotta' get busy livin' or get busy dyin'" I like to think that I am very busy living.
