one way in which MS has changed my life

Here is an example of a way in which I have changed how I do things since I got sick...

*Jason and I often refer to past events in relation to "when I got sick". At some point, this is going to have to change, but I don't know how else to describe the event of two years ago (yes, this week marks the second anniversary of my attack). I feel as if "got sick" implies that I am still sick...and I'm not sure about that. I am definitely "changed"...but sick?

Ok, back to the original topic of this post...

I am somewhat of a perfectionist. I also have very definite likes and dislikes when it comes to design oriented elements regarding our home. We are currently adding some more "landscape" elements to our front yard...some needless to say, I have a vision.

But my physical and mental energy is limited. So instead of looking for the "perfect" element...just the right colour, just the right size...a perfect cover for the freshly soiled lawn...I settle for the best of what I have been able to view.

That's it. Instead of hunting through multiple garden nurseries, and searching bags and piles of mulch, I declared a "cease" action. I suggested to dude, that he can go and pick up the mulch that I saw at the first nursery (I only went to two, and only one of them had bulk mulch)...it would be fine.

*sigh*

You sound like me. Frustrating, isn't it? I now assume the store I have the energy to walk through, before I poop out, is indeed the one with the best stuff. (Keeps my angst to a minimum LOL) ;-)

sometimes constraints reveal the best design. i love the colour of the mulch you 'settled' for. it perfectly complements the door and adds another layer of interest to your already beautiful home.
