This week included a fast weekend trip to hang with my niece to pack in a little fun before it's back to school time for her. As always, it was a blast but it's left me feeling pretty wiped out. I haven't been very productive or all that functional this week. It's only fitting that the post I'm going to write this week for the Symptom Countdown series is going to be fatigue. MS fatigue is a beast, and it's way more than just feeling tired.
The view from here:
|For this little fashionista, thrift store shopping means trying things on and striking a pose.|
|Pretty impressed I made this shot on the first try |
while only looking at my phone to try to get the picture.
|She shoots...she scores!|
|Two girls and a pig in their swimsuits, ready to cool off in the pool.|
|She loved giving me piggy back rides and carrying me around.|
|Weirdly woke up before her one morning. Loved the snuggles and watching her peacefully doze.|
|Selfie with Izzy and Holly, all vacantly staring in our own directions.|
|Roasting marshmallows for smores!|
|A small sampling of the 175 pictures of clouds I took in the last week or so.|
|I used to be a NYT crossword kind of girl, but these days the People magazine|
one is more up my alley. I know too much about pop culture. Powered through four
of these on the road trip, and then did the last one during my Tysabri infusion.
|The Olympics made my infusion a little more fun this month.|
Having spent time in Brazil and having quite a few Brazilian friends,
it's been interesting to watch the situation in Rio as well as all the athletics.
A few sort of productive things I did this week:
|I "fixed" these awesome dollar store socks. I mean, was this not OBVIOUS?|
