Why I Forgot Fibromyalgia Awareness Day


I was just reading Fibrofaery's Blog!, and I realized I failed to do something special for Fibromyalgia Awareness Day on Sunday, May 12, 2013.  However, it won't be the first time in my life I have done something late;  and besides, I did have one of my daughters, her husband, and seven grandchildren here on Saturday and Sunday for Mother's Day.  There is excuse number 1a.

Here are the rest:

  1. I overdid getting ready for their visit.
  2. I vacuumed 5 rooms for the first time in over two years or more ?!  (My excuse is my husband was breaking up soil with a tiller.)
  3. I cuddled grandchildren, read, and sang to them.
  4. I made an easy breakfast on Sunday morning.
  5. I collapsed Sunday morning, and went to church even though I probably shouldn't have.
  6. I played Crazy Eights on Sunday afternoon in my bed with one grandchild, then two.
  7. Actually, I think I went and laid down several times, because I felt horrible, but I did enjoy the visit.
  8. I walked around toys on the floor and tried not to break my neck.
  9. I think I am forgetting some things, but I'm sure you understand.

  1. I'm glad you enjoyed your Mother's Day, even though it was painful. It's great that the grandkids climbed up on bed to play a game with you, too. Forgetting things, well....that's fibro for ya :) God bless

  3. That May 12th post was such a good one. I read the one about the wheelchair too, and I completely understand. You have to do what you have to do, and if that helps you get to go shopping or get out of the house, it's a good thing.
