I have been a gypsy, a lover, a mother, a daughter… a granny, a friend, and a peace-keeper. Some call me their own personal Forrest Gump. I have traveled to many places; I have worked in many jobs… I have studied many subjects…
As a result, I know many things about many things, but not everything about anything.
I am so very glad you are here to experience this mess! Sit back, kick off your shoes and stay a while…don’t forget your coffee (or adult sparkling beverage if needed)…
My name is Sherri, and most people call me Sherri. (Although there are some who may or may not have other names for me) I’ve recently celebrated the 27th anniversary of my 21st birthday next month and that is something I’m finding hard to reconcile in my 14 year old mind.
I hail from the big ol’ state of Texas, where the mosquitoes are the size of sparrows and the heat is the equivalent of being dipped in a boiling vat of water. (think excessive humidity with that flippin’ heat)
I have had MANY life changes in the past few years – the first two are the most important.
1) I was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in September of ’10
2) I was married to my best friend
3) We moved more than 300 miles away from all my friends & family
4) I have a new job that is big and maybe a bit intimidating
My ol’ man is a high school football coach, which is a very time-consuming thing. For those of you who know anything about high school football in Texas, you know what I mean. The games around here are huge… the stadium will be packed with at least 8,000 folks, sweat glistening on their skin under the Friday night lights. It’s really quite something. I am learning to be the consummate coach’s wife.
On the advice of my super, most incredible neurologist, I have taken up the pencil (pen, brush, nib) in an attempt to gain better use of my hands. I suffer from tremors & cramping (memory loss, walking challenges sometimes, and a plethora of other things). I must admit that I see a change for the better with my hands & eye-hand coordination. Okay, enough of the depressing stuff.
These artistic endeavors are something new to me. While I’ve been doing photography (sometimes professionally) and journalistic type writing since I was 15, I am a virgin to sketching & painting & all that involves. I’m not very good… yet. I have great aspirations to be acceptable at it.
I have so many thoughts rolling around up in the noggin, sort of all disconnected and discombuberated…. I have a sometimes twisted and dark sense of humor, finding this a much better way to deal with the junk that the Universe throws my way. I spend my days reading, writing, drawing, and taking a few photos here & there. Not what I expected to end up filling my days with… A new journey!
We spend a great deal of time making fun of me…. we laugh at me…we cry over me too…but mostly we laugh. I am entertaining…I am a site… each day is an adventure that gives us something new to work through -and that’s true of everyone, cripple or not!
It is okay if you want to laugh at me, make fun of me, and tease me…. I would prefer that to the sympathy and pity… and I love to hear from you all! Leave me comments…send me emails (email@example.com)……. I reply to almost every comment left for me….
