Excuse Me while I whine!


OK, time to take off the kid gloves and do some serious whining!

Life has taken the wind out of my sails this summer....so I'm paddling a lot right now. It seems like I'm going through some rough waters . I know Melli's first response is to jump out of the boat and do some water walking with Jesus.

Sounds great, but right now the only thing I can jump at our conclusions.

"Those who wait on the Lord will renew their strength. They shall mount up on wings as eagles. They shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint." I'm spending my time trying to walk and not faint....but even that's not easy.

The last few days my knee has decided not to work. It's swollen, stiff, and aches with every step. My first thought is to think that arthritis has taken the place of injury and the additional rain is making my knee turn into a weather man.

I tried to do the one mile walk with Leslie Sansone in my living room this morning. I managed with sheer determination and will power to do a half mile and finished up the tape on the exercise bike. Right now my knee is screaming at me and not using very nice language.

My weight hasn't gone down but I'm hoping its due to the excess fluid in my knee and foot. Even so with all this effort I'm the kind of girl that thinks that there should be some kind of visible improvement. Where's the pay off?

I'm whining over here because heaven knows most of my friends have gone through so much more and I know I should just shut up and keep on going. But some times it just get tough and you need some where to vent.

whiny Baby Daisy: Boo Hoo, this is so not fair!

Drill Sargent Daisy: Just get over yourself. Who ever say life is fair?

whiny Baby Daisy: I want my knee back.....I want to be able to jump up and walk away without any pain or stiffness. I want to walk like a normal person instead of like Chester on Gunsmoke!

Drill Sargent Daisy: Be happy you can walk at all and aren't permanently in a wheel chair.

Well, you get the picture. I'm not an upsy daisy today. I've got physical therapy today so I'll see what they think.

Daisy Dilemma: How do you kick your own butt when your knee won't cooperate?

Oh YEA! Melli WISHES she could just JUMP outta the boat and do some water walking! Maybe she can throw herself down on the floor of the boat and kick and scream and do some whining with Baby Daisy today! How's that? Annnnnnnnd then... she can tell Daisy (not Baby nor Drill Sargeant)... just Daisy... to see her doctor - cuz maybe there's somethin' goin on there that he needs to know about. Nurse, do not try to heal thy self! Please?

Guess what? You're NOT going to believe it! Are you sitting down? I sure hope so! Okay.... here it is....

Pastor Paul is HUMAN! And not only that... he's a MAN! I still love him - but he's bein' a biscuit-head!
