I have had a sore hip since Saturday, but the good news is that today it is almost back to normal. The inflammation in the right hip pinched my sciatica, which was painful and not fun.
Such is the life with RA. Too much whoopee with the hubby earlier in the week. Dang it.
In spite of that, it has been a nice few days!
Friday night was my book club which I hosted! I did a wine and cheese party for snacks. I had 2 whites, a Chardonnay and a Reiseling, 2 reds, a Cabernet and a Merlot. I had a variety of cheeses, spreads, bread and fruit. For dessert decaf coffee and chocolate cake. Everyone seemed to enjoy and I had a nice time hosting!
The book was 'The Usual Rules' by Joyce Maynard. I didn't complete the book. Not that I didn't have time, it was too upsetting for me. It was about a girl whose mom dies in the World Trade Centers. I read about 2 chapters and stopped.
But, the conversation was good and I enjoyed listening to everyone's impressions of the book.
Saturday we went out to dinner with the kids and stopped to get their Halloween costumes, in spite of my hip. I just used a cane.
Hammer is being a Jedi Knight again, so didn't need anything new. Fuzzy got a new costume, a Gauzey Ghoul with light up red eyes. Kind of zombie looking to me, but what do I know. Pumpkin Muffin got a costume called Divine Witch, I would call it Spiderella, because it is red and black with a sheer robe with spider webs all over it.
This for the girl who screams and shrieks if she sees a spider in the house and then cannot enter that room alone for a day or two.
I guess it is a coping mechanism to get the costume with the webs? That is my theory anyhow. I could be thinking too hard. lol
The Jets and Giants both won on Sunday! Very exciting for all the football fans in the house! I like them both. My dad and Fuzzy are big Jets fans, Hubby and Hammer are all for the Giants. Pumpkin could care less!
Tomorrow, it is off to NYC for my IV medicine, Orencia .
I will be parking in the basement of the Belaire, the building that was struck by Yankee Corey Lidle's airplane. Thankfully, that was on the 72nd Street side, not the 71st Street side that connects to the Hospital for Special Surgery.
Scary times, huh?
I will also get my flu shot tomorrow. Usually, it is an adventure trying to get it. This year so far so good!
That is my story of late... hope this finds you all happy and healthy!
