Upward and onward
I've also decided to go with the better option of those presented to me and will be retiring on disability. What I told the wonderful lady from the insurance company is that I know that I will have times where I'll feel strong and closer to the old me, and I'll have a hard time being a person on disability at those times, but I also know that I will need down time in the future because a big phat flare lurks just around the corner waiting for the perfect opportunity to pounce. So I will do what many fight to get to do and go on disability,and I'll use my strong times to try and make things better for all of us. I'll feel justified then with the disability thing and it'll be good for all of us. I have gotten together the most amazing group of people for our Board of Directors for the new Non Profit Society we're starting up. We have my awesome sister Hana Rode, who runs the Carpet Studio, Sue Cesco, Manager of Friends of Jasper National Park, Steph Sophocleous, Manager of Tekarra Motel and co owner of The River Stone Yoga Studio, Richard Ireland, Mayor of Jasper and partner at Rodger and Ireland Barristers and Solicitors, and little old me, Marta Rode, Weggie instigator. You watch what happens when this group get their hands in the batter. For this coming March 1st we'd like to take last year's Pajama Day success and multiply it exponentially. I will keep you posted as events unfold, but we're taking the world by storm this coming March. Get your PJ's ready.
