I am officially a MOA

now that I have survived Advent, Christmas, Easter and Confirmation services. Whew.

The good news is that I am slowly but surely making my way through the mountains of files and learning the various equipment and software and feeling more on top of things every day. It helps to be feeling better and have more energy.

I had wanted to try to get some things made up for a craft fair we had this past weekend, unfortunately I have been having a rough go of it with the arthritis so I gave up on that idea. Hopefully next year. I did find some nice handmade rugs for my kitchen and get a new purse, woohoo!

I really, really hope to get some sleep tonight. This past week has been a restless one and I didn't have my usual time on the weekend to rest.

Not bad, not bad at all

were my doctors words at my appt yesterday. I told him that was good because I wasn't overly fond of bad.

I haven't needed an epogen or neuprogen shot in 3 weeks and after a fun-filled day and night of keeping my urine in a jug and then a big bad blood draw yesterday morning and THEN my doctor's visit I have found that all my levels look very good and things are going pretty darn well.

I do not have to go back for a month. I have a whole month of no blood draws, no hospital or doctor visits, no injections. A MONTH.

I will still have to do the whole pee in a jug thing along with the blood draws in a month, but I'll take every bit I can get.

I also get to take one less med. Life is good, not bad, not bad at all.

Yeah, I'm not finishing the photo post

because it has been forever and I just don't feel like it.

Sorry for not posting for so long, I am really not feeling well. Lots of joint pain, probably due to the dampness and rain.

I am not all that witty or interesting at the moment, but I am crocheting & knitting. At some point I will actually put some pics up.

Abbie & Arenne turned 9, it is so crazy how old they are getting, it's just too fast! They had a dog party centered around my mom's new dog, Petey. It was hilarious and a lot of fun.

Hopefully I will be on again soon and a little more interesting!
