Theme to Star Wars

Hammer and I just got back from Borders Books a little while ago.

I had a personal shopping day with 10% off my entire order from the frequent buyer club.  (Yes, of course, I belong... and better than B&N, its free!!!)

Hammer hit the jackpot!  On the bargain table for $4 was a book he wanted read that is mentioned in quite few of his physics books.  It is called 'Flatland' by Edwin A. Abbott. 

Next, we hit upon a Star Wars expanded universe novel... and some true treats... here... take a look:

Yes, that is BumbleBee the Transformer in a gummy candy!

Here are Optimus and Megatron, along with Hammer's book!

I know how jealous you must be... lol  Hammer being a total Transformers nut was quite thrilled, even though he has braces and cannot eat them!  I think they are too cool to eat anyhow!!!

I picked up a paperback treat for myself, too.

If you read the comments on my Monday hating entry, you may have noticed that Luanne and Bethe both take methotrexate, too. 

Bethe pointed out the use of folic acid to combat some of the side effects.  I also do that.  I take 2 mg ever day, except the day I take the drug, I take 3 mgs.   It keeps my hair in better shape, defintely! 

As with most of these drugs, it is a trade off, between the side effects and what it does for my disease.  The methotrexate does help keep my immune system calmer/supressed so that it doesn't attack itself so much, creating inflammation. 

Methotrexate alone isn't enough though, and thankfully, the plaquenil should start to show signs of working in November, which is soon!

I just had to run up to the school!!!  Pumpkin Muffin called in a panic because she forgot her Geography book at home!!  Yikes!  Well, now it is waiting for her in the office, and she will hopefully, calm down and eat her lunch!!  LOL

More later...

be well,

O you didn't rescue your child!  Oh wait, I just did too!  This parenting class I'm taking is all about letting our kids suffer with the consequences of their own mistakes while the price is low.  As in, when she forgets the book, oh well, she needs to remember it.  When the kid does a lousy job on a homeschool paper grade it.  Don't give opportunity for them to do it again.  I'm learning so much about teaching responsibility.  I hate it cuz I'm a helicopter mom.  And heaven help me when it is Bella.  I rescue her as a habit!  LOL
I love to go book shopping.  It is one of my favorite places.
