Oh Where Oh Where Have My Followers Gone

This straight from ( the real blogger status )
This week, we're seeing a large number of reports of missing Followers, and / or the Followers gadget not showing up on various blogs. The reports don't include a lot of detail, though.

A number of people have left a comment on that post about this problem. Seems they are aware of It and working on It. I will follow the progress and update If there are any new finding's.

Have a great Friday,

My Life With A.L.S.

It was a crisp autumn day. November 15th, 1998 to be exact. We walked Into the doctors office waiting patiently In the waiting room for the doctor to see us. Mr. K and I were both so quiet what was he going to tell us, would our lives be changed forever or would they stay the same happy, carefree and not a care In the world. Our lives were perfect.

The nurse called Mr. K's name and I can remember I couldn't stand up as hard as I tried I couldn't get out of the chair. After taking a deep breath and saying a prayer for God to give me strength I got up walking toward the door of the examining room the nurse politely said the doctor will be right In. About ten very quiet minutes later In walks the doctor shakes both of our hands and sits down. He starts speaking, after running all the test I now have a confirmed diagnoses....A.L.S.
Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis better known as Lou Gehrig's Disease. My body went numb I couldn't move I couldn't speak I just sat there In total shock. Mr. K was so calm and so brave. The first thing he said to the doctor was, that's terminal Isn't It. The doctor replied with a sympathetic yes.

Hold Hands Not Keys

Hold hands not keys Is a clever little tag line that Amy from FunFobs came up with for her Etsy business. This Is how Amy came up with her key fobs.

One day she was on one of her beach excursions and she suddenly discovered she had lost her keys. After fruitless searching, she realized she was forever losing her keys in her purse, misplacing them at home, or dropping them down into the grocery cart. She decided it was time to make herself a pretty, functional, and colorful key fob. Then she realized other people might find them as useful as she does and the Fun Fob shop was created. Here are just a few of her many designs currently for sell In her shop. Enjoy.

Hae a great day,

My Life With A.L.S.

Our ALS Walk Team Kup & Company

Do you ever feel out of touch with the world. That's whats going on with me right now. I rarely go out, maybe a couple of times a month, because the truth Is I simply do not trust anyone with Mr.K. He Is so helpless he can do nothing so his life would rest In their hands. One of my worst fears Is that something would happen when I was gone and they wouldn't no what to do yet It be a very simple thing that I could of easily fixed. That truly scares me.

I feel that I know some of you really well so I thought I would start sharing a little of my life with you from time to time. The reason I never blogged about my ALS life Is because I never wanted anyone to feel sorry for me. This Is where I feel my life Is right now.

I am truly blessed to be able to stay home and care for Mr.K. When Mr.K was diagnosed I was only 37 years old. I have many challenges In my life but the rewards are so much greater. Mr.K makes me laugh, he makes me cry, he makes me smile and yes he does make me mad sometimes. God has put this task of caring for my Husband In my hands. He has given me the strength to get through each day with dignity and grace.

My life Is what It Is. I can choose to be happy or choose to be sad but It Is entirely up to me. I choose to be happy.

Have a wonderful week end,
