Just a "zebra" trying my best to live life to the fullest with EDS and POTS...and loving the ride.

Walk On

Written by Katie. Posted in Favorites, Memorable Experiences, Music

Music.  Relationships. 

Relationships.  Music

These are the two things that have gotten me through this past year without going crazy.  These are the two things that I lean on heavily everyday for my survival.  For my sanity.  For my motivation and inspiration.  For my Faith.

I could write for hours and hours about both of these topics, and as I continue to blog, I know that they will keep surfacing as major players in my life.  U2 is something I have been meaning to write about since I saw them in concert at Spartan Stadium a little over a week ago.  It is funny because the first 27 years of my life, I liked U2.  They made up a chunk of my running playlist.  I would watch some of their concerts on Palladia.  I knew and admired that Bono was really involved with various charities. 

Wake Up Call

Written by Katie. Posted in Challenges, Favorites, Music

Sometimes you need a wake up call.  Usually I try not to whine about the little things that get me down about EDS and POTS, but yesterday I failed at this. Big time.

It was 84 degrees and sunny yesterday.  In all other years I would have been ecstatic about this weather; especially on April 10th.  I would have broken out my Reef flip flops and capris, and spent as much time as I could outside reading, relaxing, and soaking up some rays.  I would have also probably have gone and gotten my first pedicure of the season. 

But not yesterday.  I whined and complained all day.  I even got on MY nerves after a while. 

We\’ve Got Tonight

This will either make me cool, or really uncool (I don’t even think that is a word but oh well) depending on who you are but I cannot tell you how giddy I have been all day since I read this morning that Bob announced he will be touring again starting in March. 

I grew up listening to Bob.  My Dad has always loved him and he passed that love on to me.  I always remember singing to him as we sat around our camp fires at Lake Leelanau.  When Brad and I talk about our “desert island” albums, Bob Seger’s Greatest Hits is one of two albums that we both agree on in our all time top ten albums.
