I've Got Sunshine on a Cloudy Day (cue music)

I was feeling like crap yesterday but I got something in the mail. My AW friend Bobbie sent me a card and a flower. The flower she gave me at the last AW meeting broke but I used my trusty clear masking tape LOL and fixed it. This was taken with my webcam since Rich is scrambling to find the power cord to rev up the digital camera.
I missed yoga since I was on the couch most of the day with a heating pad - wish they made a body size one. I had to take pain medicines that I take very rarely but I wasn't able to drive. Man what a bummer!
I did watch Oprah yesterday with one of my favorites - Michael J. Fox. I was wondering when Oprah would have people on the show that are in pain that the disability ISN'T visible like fibromyalgia. I'd go on as one of the people still coming to grips with all it entails. I'm making friends but I'm torn between "pushing" myself and taking care of myself. I feel like I'm missing out on a lot.
I was watching Good Morning America and had to laugh. I watched yesterday and remembered what a Krimpet was - I was born in Philly and took a box of them home when I visited last time. That's one of the things I miss about Philly but I can always order online right?
Two books I want to read (I love biographies and autobiographies) Michael J. Fox and Cloris Leachman. I wish I had her energy - dancing at her age - 82 - on "Dancing With the Stars". The book I'm reading now is for the book club I'm in "The Adventures of Miles and Isabel" by Tom Gilling. I'm liking it - it combines (to me) fate, love - and I believe in that a lot. I am using my beautiful beaded bookmark from Dawn - thank you sweetie!
I have wonderful friends! I'm taking the attitude from one of my friends to re-define friendship. I used to feel that a friend you talk to almost every day, go out at least once a week. I feel like I've failed at that - hey that's one of the reasons I go to a counselor LOL. I cherish e-mails, phone calls and get-togethers that we have had and the Altered Book ladies and the Book Club. Dayna is at the center of all of these and I appreciate & admire her SO much.
OK here are some more links I find interesting/funny/silly:
for you 80's folks

What a lovely gift!

And I enjoyed your post. Hope you have a sunny day, on all the levels, soon.

You're wondering why Oprah doesn't invite a guest with fibromyalgia. Why don't you volunteer for the gig? Seriously.
