I had hics today,we had a pizza party for Halloween!We also did some karaoke using my idea of using the computer and the karaoke machine together so we could do virtually any song!That really worked out well,I must say what a brilliant idea I had :) !I was able to do a song from styx,"come sail away"!I forgot to ask someone to video it for me and I had my cam and my iPhone with me :(!Tomorrow I've got pt,gonna work on walking without assistance,cain or walker!I've gutta realize if I only make it 1/2 way on the walk in front of my building that's okay cause I must walk back which makes it like I'm walking the whole distance!

I've had a very good day :)!I had a very good time at our conference today!I saw many survivors that I havn't seen in a long time but like last year,not too many of the vender's I used to see every year at our conference :)!The guest speaker was talking about living our lives the way I already live mine!I've said this many times,You must look at what is positive in your life and not dwell on the negative,always look at the glass as 1/2 full :)!I've been that way just about all my life b4 and after my tbi!Now even more so cause if I can wake up from a coma there is nothing I can't do :)!I've just got to take my time and try to think things through!I really believe I can do anything.I've passed part 1 of the driving eval after 2 times of not passing so things just take me longer but I CAN do it :)!Tomorrow I've got pt @10 am then I'm thinkin of callin Lisa and seein if she wants to hang out @ D&D's  4 lunch :)!
