God Bless Us, Every One!

I Love Christmas Movies, in particular the classics.  And No, I don’t mean Christmas Vacation with Chevy Chase or Elf with Will Farrell.  I mean the True Classics like It’s a Wonderful Life with Jimmy Stewart and Donna Reed, or A Christmas Carol with George C. Scott or White Christmas with Bing Crosby and Rosemary Clooney.

All You Need is Love.

When I left the office on August 11, I left my desk in a bit of disarray.  I had two main piles of two key projects that I was working on. I had several conference calls the day before, and I had about a dozen things that were due on Monday, August 15.  Not a big deal, because I was used to working under pressure.  Actually, I prefer it that way.  So, my desk was my own organized chaos.  Anyone who knows me knows that I don’t like people moving my things. I have things where they are, and I remember where they are.  If you move them, chances are, I won’t find them for months, because I’ll forget to look.  I would say the only thing that was ever organized on my desk was my “Welcome” basket, which was filled daily with candy.

Give Me Everything

It’s been a great week!  There has been such an uptick in plotlines, that I feel like I just got to the good part of a really slow-paced novel.

I have had so many firsts that I’m trying to figure out where to begin.  So I’ll give you the best news, the most exciting of all news!  I started JOGGING on the treadmill.  Yes, friends and followers.  Suzy Carney is now a jogger!  Now, I will stipulate that I don’t jog for very long, but the legs are working again!  The last time I was jogging/running was on a treadmill in The Mirage gym in Vegas on Tuesday, August 2nd.  4 months and 1 day.  But, who’s counting?  Uh, I am!

Dream Weaver

I’ve just closed my eyes again
Climbed aboard the dream weaver train
Driver take away my worries of today
And leave tomorrow behind

Ooh dream weaver
I believe you can get me through the night
Ooh dream weaver
I believe we can reach the morning light

I love to sleep.  On my Couch.  On the Beach.  On the Dock.  On a Septa Bus that had caught on fire on my way to work .  Sleep and I are friends.  Good friends.  Loyal Friends. Continue reading

Giving Thanks.


Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday.  I find that it’s the one where the main goal is to spend time with loved ones, and eat as much as humanly possible while wearing your most comfortable clothes.  This holiday always makes me sit back and reflect on the blessings bestowed on me this past year.

I’ve been doing a lot of reading lately.  My struggle is I don’t have much of an attention span as a result of my recovery with GBS, so I have a hard time staying focused.  I have several books that I’ve started, bookmarked, and not finished.  Then, I got the perfect book.  It came as a gift from a close friend who herself went through her own medical battle.  The card inside the gift box read:

“Here is my copy of the Book of Awesome.  It helped me look for and learn to appreciate small and simple things.  I hope it makes you smile.  Emily”  This book got Emily through a challenging time in her life, and I know it will do the same for me.  Thanks Em! Continue reading
