New in my World

Don't you just love this picture... it came in an email and was subtitled 'Proof of marriage in the animal kingdom.'

I just had to share it here! 

My IV infusion went well yesterday.  The Orencia is working for the Rheumatoid Arthritis, which is great.  I only had one joint starting to act up, which is what starts to happen at the end of the month when I am due for the medicine.

My RN is working on getting me something for the mouth sores. 

I was really pooped yesterday morning.  My dad was home from work, so my dad, Hammer, Hubby and myself all went to IHOP for breakfast.  I had lots of coffee and a wonderful omelet. 

Then, off to NYC.  Hubby and I thought that the traffic would be light leaving at 10am.  Wrong.  You can never predict NYC traffic.  lol  We were still plenty early though... so no problems.

Last evening, Fuzzy had another baseball game.  It was a doozy!  They were on fire, hitting and making great defensive plays that boggled the mind.  They won 9-6.  Fuzzy got hit with a pitch on the ankle bone in the first inning, which, coupled with his jammed finger from playing football the day before, earned him a bench ride and ice packs for the rest of the game.

Although, Hubby was off with me yesterday, he took all his work phone calls and emails on his blackberry.  A mistake yesterday.  He had nothing but problems and stupid office politics to deal with for the whole day.  It made him cranky, but he was wonderful for me... so, I can't complain too much. 

Winning the game made his evening.  He fell asleep on the couch with a smile.  He and his two assistant coaches were just glowing at how well the boys played!

Tomorrow night is book club!  I can't wait!  It is so nice to get out and be with the women in my club, who are wonderfully intelligent and witty.  And, the evening is not about the kids, it is just for 'us' moms!  Yeah, of course, the conversation gets to kids and hubbies at some point, but at least it isn't the whole reason for being there.

My life revolves around the kids, and that is perfect and I wouldn't have it any other way, or change a thing, but having this club just for me is nice, too.

Be well,
Dawn

Oh Sweetie, I am so happy the Orencia is working for you.  :-}.

I just love IHOP for breakfast (or for any time really.)  Love my coffee too.

Poor Fuzzy.  But I bet he is still smiling.  Tell him I said... "WAY TO GO!"

It's so great that you are in a book club.  I would love to find one here in my neck of the woods.  I have to check it out.

I'm living on percocettes and Celebrex more than usual due to this stupid hip stuff.  So I am a tad more foggier than normal.  LOL

I should really do some journaling this evening.  I have been neglecting it for so long.  Plus I have not been so diligent in commenting in other's journals.

Love you bunches, Lu
