Alive in FamilyLand...

Just a quick note to say I am alive and surviving the week with an 11 and 15 year old niece and nephew! Their trip to the Emerald City from the hills of the Midwest is drawing to a close and I will be sad to see them leave VERY EARLY Saturday morning...we have been to the beach, the rain forest on the Olympic Peninsula, the Space Needle, the Experience the Music Project, the Science Fiction Museum, rode a Metro bus, cruised on a Washington State Ferry, toured the Zoo, AND still have the Aquarium, the Monorail, the Pacific Science Center, and a few other choice Seattle sites to take in during the next 36 hours! Needless to say, I am falling into MS exhaustion, but it is for a good cause.

The kids seem to be having a grand time with their old, but "hip" auntie (me)...and I am having a blast getting to spoil them as only an auntie can. LOL We'll see how "spoiled" I look/feel/smell by Saturday afternoon after I've had a few hours to survey the bodily damage and mental exhaustion that can only come from early mornings, late nights, and sleeping on a too-short-and-uncomfortable couch! More later.

Good times...good times...

How nice to be able to say "alive in familyland". I usually say "insane in familyland" or "trapped in familyland". lol

I'm enjoying your blog. I'm MS too and also on Tysabri. Hope all is going well for you right now.

You amaze me Linda. All hail the powerful and most active Cheese Head in the land.

I don't know how you do it.

don't think you can just blame fatigue on MS -- I'll bet everyone in your family is exhausted and happy. Since I have guests arriving in Seattle Saturday -- and I don't want the whirlwind trip you had -- which do you think is better...music project or science fiction museum?

And what's the stinkin anser to your riddle????
Glad yo having fun in familyland.

Sounds fun and probably worth the physical payment later.
