Happy Saturday!

Happy SaturdayI hope y’all are enjoying your Saturday! It has been a rainy mess here, but I guess it could be worse! We are actually supposed to have rain all week-long, which will not be any fun for those of us that suffer with pain. I will say though, rain on the weekends is actually wonderful! The nasty weather gives me a great excuse to stay at home and do my best to stay on the couch with a blanket and my cats, of course!

I did go have my MRI done this afternoon. I have had so many MRI’s through the 16 years  I have had MS, but this one seemed insanely long! It is always cold in those rooms, so the MRI tech put a heated blanket on me to keep me comfortable. I was only about half way through the first part of the test and was so hot and felt like I was having a panic attack. I tried to waited it out, but I finally hit the button to get their attention to have the blanket removed. The removal of the blanket helped some, but I was still so hot and did not feel right. I was so relieved when the test was finally over, all I wanted was to go home so I could relax peacefully. Now, I have to spend the rest of my weekend waiting to hear about the results from the doctor next week. I am really bad at waiting for something simple, now I am being forced to wait for something that is so extremely important to me! We will see how that goes!

I am going to try not think about my MRI for the remainder of the weekend. I am going Saturday 1to have to find something that will keep me distracted. I am still experiencing so much pain, so I am really not sure if I am going to work on Monday, or if I am going to head straight to my doctor’s office to try to get the answers that I need. But, it is only Saturday and I am going to try to only think about things one day at a time! There is really no point in doing as I have always done, and try to plan my week out in advance, because things never work out perfectly! Saturday’s have always been my more restful day, and I would actually try to get things done on Sunday!

I am thinking that for the rest of my weekend, I am going to try to watch a mindless movie or TV show and possibly finish my Nicholas Sparks book. I have honestly been having some troubles focusing lately, but that could be because I have been under a massive amount of stress or because of the pain, who knows? Does anyone have any good books they could recommend, for my next book? I had been reading so many of James Patterson’s books, but I think that with all the other violence that we hear about on the news, I am going take a break from his books, as they are all full of violence. Do not get me wrong though, I am still a huge fan of his! I am thinking right now especially, I need a book that is more carefree and happy. 

I hope the rest of your Saturday is fantastic! I really appreciate all of your comments and truly love our connections we have made. Y’all take care and enjoy your evening!

Always, Alyssa

  1. I recommend J.D. Robb (aka Nora Roberts)… her ‘In Death’ series is FANTASTIC. I’ve been meaning to get back into it myself, so this is a great idea! Hope your weekend goes well in spite of the rain. 🙂


      • She did/does. But they usually have some sort of twist to them. My favorite Nora book is called The Three Fates. I have lost count of how many times I have read it over the last decade.. pages are yellow and dog-eared.. I think even one of the kids spilled water on it at some point so it has water damage.. LOL.. but it still sit on my dresser waiting for the next time I want to take a walk with the Fates. 🙂


  2. Have you joined Goodreads? It is brilliant, like a library at your fingertips! You can read endless book reviews. I recommend you read a review of ‘Tuesdays with Morrie’ and decide if it is something you would consider reading. Have fun!


    • I honestly never knew about Goodreads, thank you so much for telling me about it! I will definitely join and I am going to check out the book you have recommended! I really appreciate your great response!!!

  3. I wrote a comment and pressed send but I think there are breaks in my internet signal so it didn’t post. I’ll try again…

    Are you joined Goodreads? Free online library…you can read endless reviews and set up your own account with shelves for books you have read and books on your to read list…I highly recommend joining! Also ‘Tuesdays with Morrie’…well worth reading! Have fun browsing!


  4. Something up with my connection or else WordPress are messing with me! This is my 4th or 5th attempt to recommend Goodreads an online, free book club. Read book reviews to your hearts content! I recommend Tuesdays with Morrie


  5. Hey Alyssa!

    Thank you so much for reaching out. It’s really nice to know that I’m not alone in this. I started my blog as an outlet to relieve myself of stress but also help others in the process.

    I’ve browsed through your blog and I really do like your posts. Keep up the great work!!

    I enjoy reading and I have a wide variety of different books. Let me know which genres you’re interested in and I might be able to point you in the direction of a really good book.


    • That is absolutely amazing! I am pretty sure we started our blogs for mainly the same reasons! You and I seem to think a like.

      I am glad to hear that you like my posts! I am going to try to keep doing daily posts.

      I was stuck on crime books for a while, but like I said we already have too much violence in real life. I also like to read love stories and another type of book I like would be true stories! Thank you!!!

      • If you’re interested in some love stories I can definitely help you! My favourite author’s Colleen Hoover. You should try reading Slammed- Colleen Hoover. All her novels apply real life situations and aren’t fantasy based.

        Happy reading🌸


  6. Depends what books you like? But recently I super enjoyed The Long Way to A Small Angry Planet by Becky Chambers. It’s this cool, thoughtful sci fi about a multi-species space-ship crew. It’s the sort of sci fi that’s about people, not tech.
