Thanks to this gorgeous tag by my Sazzy I am finally a beautiful fairy princess! Yay!
So, not a lot is new here in my world. I helped Fuzzy and Pumpkin complete school projects this weekend. It was a rainy weekend, and perfect for such an endeavor. I will be getting A's I am sure. errr... I mean THEY will be getting A's. ha ha
I have my Orencia infusion coming up on Wednesday. I am hoping that one of my RN buddies will be able to tell me what I need to do to get rid of the mouth sore from hell.
Mouth sores are one of the many unpleasant side effects of Lupus. I have had them my entire life. They suck. This one is the granddaddy of every one I have ever had. It is HUGE! It is the size of a dime, almost, and on the inside of my bottom lip.
It hurts all the time! Everything I eat hurts it! Everything I drink hurts it!!! Ugh.
Tonight, I decided to have a wine cooler to soothe it. Pfft. Didn't work, although, I cared a little less for a while. lol
Oh yeah, and here is a hoot of a story. I have been wearing glasses and contacts since I was 17 years old. I have never, EVER, misplaced my glasses in all that time!!!
Until now. My contact lenses were feeling icky today, probably from all the green gooky pollen that is all over my car. So, I took out my lenses and went to put on my glasses. AND, dear readers, that is where it all went terribly wrong.
For the first time in 23 YEARS, my glasses were not where I always put them. After the initial panic subsided, I realized that I probably brought them on vacation with us to the Poconos back in February.
I searched the luggage. No glasses. I searched the garage where the skiing stuff is now stored. No glasses. I searched the beach bag that we took to go to the indoor pool. No glasses.
Then, I searched everywhere I knew my glasses weren't just in case they actually were there. You know what I mean... looking in every conceivable location that things are stored in your house. Still, no glasses.
I can't believe it. I lost my glasses.
My dad told me at dinner today, that he told me twice yesterday, what tonight's dinner was going to be. He said I answered him and then still was completely clueless today. He said, and I quote,
"I think your mind is starting to go, or something."
Crap. What is next? UGH.
Oh, yeah this can be a Lupus or Rheumatoid Arthritis thing too.
We call it RA fog or Lupie fog.
Oh yeah, I did have an old pair of glasses in the drawer where the right ones should be that are now lost.
Okay... I am really going now....
