I ended up ditching housework yesterday, walking down the street and buying some casual clothes suitable for warmer weather. Highly necessary - I haven't bought any for years, and hardly anything fits. Perversely enough, it's cold and rainy today so I can't wear them. Ho hum...

I will be keeping quiet today, as the mtx has hit hard.

* Basic chores - make bed, do dishes, 5x5 minutes tidying, 15 minutes gardening (if it doesn't rain)
* Saturday chores - paperwork and cards
* and - vacuum the one floor I didn't do yesterday
* and - make soup to fill the freezer
* and - make a list of plants that died during the drought, so I can replace them at the plant sale tomorrow.
* Crohn's and fibro care - exercise, stretching x 3, strengthening exercises, stay on track with meds.
* Ring someone (only if my brain wakes up)
* clean the toilet - it's now 5 days overdue!!

* Bonus points - go for another super-long walk, or spend 60 minutes on the walking machine at home. Go through at least one drawer or cupboard and remove (for storage) anything that doesn't fit. 15 minutes pricing. 15 minutes Guide stuff.

Jo, how was the parade?

Ivy, prednisoloned and pudgier than she has ever been... rolleyes

Saturday pacting:
Back from the doctors with my sick youngest dayghter who woke me up at 6am with chest pain - she has a chest infection - poor baby so... Ive just woken up after having a nap and will rest for my shift at work this afternoon.
The Parade was perfect yesterday thank you Ivy. Very emotional and proud day for us all and we had a late night sitting around laughing with Sam over all the antics/trials of her stay at college. She starts work on Monday - orientation day, then into it the next day, now is when I should be worrying about her!
I feel like you must - very foggy headed - mentioned this to Gastro and she said its the pred, there are some days I will not make conversation as I feel too drugged out to comment - those are the zombified days - these are occuring more each week - oh well.
You are still manging a lot in your days there Ivy, you make me feel tired just reading it.
Have a good weekend everyone
Jo

Crohn's and UC are pretty darn crappy, but if you can't laugh at yourself, you'll cry. 
I'd much rather laugh.
2001 Dx'd with UC.  No remission.  5/2008 surgery, removal of 6" of left side colon.  Dx changed to Crohn's.  Remission for 8-9wks after surgery, symptoms returning after resuming 6MP.

Wow, Heidi, that sounds hard and complicated. Where did you learn how to do that?

Jo, do you find that some weeks you're ok with mtx and other times you feel horrible? I had an unusually bad reaction this week - have been feeling revolting & headachy & lethargic & nauseated all day. I've done the basic chores and the paperwork and made the soup (didn't eat it, though; felt too crook) and *forced* myself to exercise longer than usual, in the hope that it might make me feel a bit better (it did). Oh yes, and talked to a friend on the phone. That's enough for today.

I'm sorry about your daughter. btw, in the local paper today there was talk of a small pneumonia epidemic that's striking people here. Multiple hospital admissions with people under 30 y.o. in the last week or two, apparently. Did the doctor rule out pneumonia? And did s/he give any indication of how long she'll be sick?

Glad to know the parade went so well. I'm bursting with chat, but will save it for real mail :-)

Catch you in the Sunday thread,

Ivy, zonked.

Oh, I've always had cats growing up, they aren't too hard to manage.  ;-)
 
I should have specified, Husband, nephew and a family friend are doing the installation.  I'm happily typing away on the computer, checking on the kitties in the Master Bedroom and periodically supervising the installation process. 
What, work?  Me?!  *laughs*  The bending over and required muscle tension of the abdomen would be my downfall. 
Good thing my Hubby is a handy guy. 
I am the go-fer today.  I have to go-fer tea bags to make sun tea and then later I'll go-fer sandwiches at Subway.  I just hope I don't have to go-fer anything at Home Depot.  I can never get them to understand my description of what it is Hubby wants.  I sometimes think Hubby sends me to Home Depot just to get me out of his hair, and the wilder descriptions keep me gone longer. :-/
