No choice of chairs

I got my power wheelchair back Saturday, but I was without it today at work and will be again tomorrow. The van's engine light is coming on, and while it is probably a glitch in a sensor, no one wants that car to break. So it at the shop. This means I use the manual, which can fit in any car.

It isn't the energy I use to propel myself or how much harder it is to use the manual than the power chair. What kills me is how slow I am. I have to leave for meetings five minutes early and I am still late. I don't go see my friends on the other side of the building, not because it is tiring but because it takes so long.

It seems like an opportune time to try the shuttle bus, but I am in charge in the mornings this week so it really is not a good time. New things for me too often translate into lateness.

It wasn't that long ago that I was using the manual regularly. I really got spoiled fast.

I really just meant I was surprised how fast I got used to going fast.

I don't know what the deal is with the d's. His sister called me lazy, too.

Clearly a very competitive family, can you imagine such a thing?

ok...Katherine didn't call him lazy...she invited him over to watch the Redskins and the Giants and have dessert. Matt responded, "no, b/c I might fall asleep." Cue loud cackles..."Uncle Matt, you faker." Emily: "what should we do with Uncle Matt?" Joe: "Throw him in a big bush."

Creatures is the right word! But yes, I am lucky.
