Wow! The weather people said the temps were going to drop and they were not kidding!
It is 11 degrees! And, with the wind whipping around the way it is doing, it feels like -10 degrees. Brrrr...
The poor kids! I bundled them up like little eskimos, all the while with them rolling their eyes at me! They just had to walk from the car into school, as they will line up in the gym before class, but still!
I am lucky, I put on a fleece pullover in the garage, turn on my heated seats, pull out of the garage, drive them to school, drive home, and pull back into the garage. All in slippers and pj's the whole way!
Today is a busy day! The tax appraisal lady is popping in between 10 and 10:30 am, Hammer has his every 3 month appointment for his Asperger's at 1pm, and this afternoon at 4pm is orthodontist for Hammer and Fuzzy.
Hammer is reading a book called 'Born on a Blue Day' by Daniel Tammet. It is written by a man with Asperger's/Autism and he wanted to share his experiences with the hopes that it will help others. After Hammer is done reading it, I will.
Everyone on the Autistic Spectrum is different, yet there are common threads, especially with those that are very gifted, like Hammer and this man.
However, today is too busy a day for me, especially with tomorrow being my Orencia IV in NYC, but that is how the cookie crumbles.
This is how I would rather be tomorrow....
Yes, hooked up to coffee. I am drinking my second wonderful cup right now.
Instead, I will be hooked up to an IV bag of medicine.
Last month, I had no bruising at ALL. Not where they took the 3 vials of blood or where the IV was located. That has NEVER happened! I can't wait to tell Krystal, the RN that did them! But, I will wait until after my new ones are in, so I don't make her, or whichever RN I have, too nervous.
I really cannot say enough nice things about the RN's in the Infusion Unit. They treat you like you are at a spa, and you are queen for the day, not like you are a patient getting loaded up with immune system suppressing meds. :-D
I am looking forward to getting the Orencia on board because my hands and elbows are very sore.
Such is life with rheumatoid arthritis. ;-D
