Good morning/afternoon!

The above pictures are from my daughter and her husbands Christmas pictures....but have been forgetting to post them! :o) I love them! The way they are in the pictures are the same way they are naturally at home/here! :o)
Today is SuperBowl Sunday! Yay! Dh and my sil got a lot of finger foods for today! Yummy! We're all set and you all are invited!
So far so good with the swelling. It's still not all the way down, but the way they are right now are so much better then last week! I'm so thankful for that. :o)
I'm still coughing. Bummer. I have a doctors appointment tomorrow to see my arthritis specialist. Oh boy! I come home so sore after I see him, because he squeeses my knuckles and joints! lol
My regular pains from all of the other stuff are the same. Geesh! It all still starts from my back, down to my hips then down my legs. Yesterday I kept having those electrical feelings go all through my body! When that would happen, I always got tunnel vision and the feeling that I was going to pass out. Just something more to talk to my neuro with. I know that was/is the MS stuff.
I have another joke!

1. How do you put a giraffe into a refrigerator?

The correct answer is: Open the refrigerator, put in the giraffe, and close
the door. This question tests whether you tend to do simple things in an
overly complicated way.

2. How do you put an elephant into a refrigerator?

Did you say, Open the refrigerator, put in the elephant, and close the

Wrong Answer

Correct Answer: Open the refrigerator, take out the giraffe, put in the
elephant and close the door This tests your ability to think through the
repercussions of your previous actions.

3. The Lion King is hosting an animal conference. All of the animals
attend.. except one. Which animal does not attend?

Correct Answer: The Elephant. The elephant is in the refrigerator. You just
put him in there.This tests your memory. Okay, even if you did not answer
the first three questions correctly, you still have one more chance
to show your true abilities.

4. There is a river you must cross but it is used by crocodiles, and you do
not have a boat. How do you manage it?

Correct Answer: You jump into the river and swim across. Have you not been
listening? All the crocodiles are attending the Animal Meeting. This tests
whether you learn quickly from your mistakes.

I thought it was funny, so I thought I'd share it. :o)
I have something inspirational as well. :o)

Make it real

The problems seem so big and imposing because you focus on them so intently and see them so clearly. Imagine looking at some of your best positive possibilities with the same intensity and level of focus.

The past seems so real because you know so much about it, and as a result it commands much of your attention. Consider what would happen if you could put your full, undivided attention on the valuable and creative things you're now able to do in the present.

Whatever you focus upon grows more and more influential in your life. Because the things you focus upon are the things you act upon, and every action has real consequences.

Your life is what you choose to make it, and the time to choose is right now. What you do with the moment at hand is more important, by orders of magnitude, than any past disappointments or present difficulties.

This is the day for you to make a difference. This is your moment to transform nagging problems into magnificent opportunities.

You are able, right now, to choose any thought, any action, and any path. This time, you can choose the very best and truly make it real.

-- Ralph Marston

That one stepped on my toes a bit. The truth will do that.
I'm going for now. :o) I do hope that all of you have a great day! :o)

Hi Lisa,

Especially like the one of Nena making a heart shape with her
hands over her belly.
