We go to Saskatoon on Saturday, March 14th to see In Flames. In the vehicle are Mitch Shayne, Rachel, Kim & I, girls went out on the town while we’re at the concert since they aren’t fans of metal music. So we listen to this on the way up & we all know the words so all 5 of us sing along

Then Mitch puts this on?

Who am I to judge? I’ve got Pink’s Greatest Hits so far & Chromeo on my iPod & Billy Joel’s Greatest Hits.

All of Mitch’s iPod stuff not the Chromeo or Pink stuff to see this…..

Brian Wilson’s new song

I got up this morning & dropped my iPod down the head of the bed. Kim had left for work so I got on the floor saw it & couldn’t reach it. I made my way scooting along on my bum to the laundry room to get the Swiffer to reach it. I got it thankfully. Took me longer than a person who is able bodied but I did it. Had a lot of pain in my hips at the time but I got it in the end. Probably took me 15-20 minutes but I made it. I have a physical disability but that doesn’t mean I can’t do everyday stuff I just have to do them differently.

A lot of people flat out don’t want to be on Facebook. I get that, I’m getting tired of it as well. All of this music news comes from Facebook, links that whoever shares on Facebook. If it wasn’t for people having issues with their email accounts & the wealth of information on Facebook. I’d be long gone from Facebook.

I took these simple things for granted also so don’t feel bad. I’m alive! Anyone with any type of cancer does not have a death sentence. I had a 5-15% chance of surviving, better than a 0-4% chance. I’m in a wheelchair & I have an iPatch. I’m fine I survived, I’m alive, sure beats the alternative! I didn’t realize these little things until they we’re taken away from me, there’s no reason for anyone to sit & think about these things. Walking, talking, emptying & loading a dishwasher, folding laundry, drinking any liquid, eating, etc. All of these things were taken away from me. But I’ve got a TON of that back other than walking & having 0 depth perception. The dishes were far too heavy for me to loading & unloading the dishwasher was nearly impossible when I left the WRC. Now it’s no biggie. Hasn’t really been issue since we moved here in late 2013. No cancer is NOT genetic, it’s a disease that anyone could get at any time so you don’t really need to worry about it if a family member has had it. Just continue with your everyday life & don’t waste your time worrying about something that MIGHT happen. Yes I need to do that as well!

Kim & I don’t have children for a few reasons. I’m scared of raising a child to become a responsible adult & in our current situation having a child would be very difficult

A-Rod will play baseball this year & will be known as A-Roid for years to come. If he gets into the Hall of Fame his name should be marked with an *

Songs I like. “Collective Soul” it was more of a phase. Now I listen to them very rarely for nostalgia sake & since we covered 3 songs from their self titled 2nd album released in 1995.
