Yay! I just heard back from the city doctors. They think I'm pretty close to requalifying for Humira turn but just need a few extra details, so...

* walk up the street, get a blood test and ask the nurse to weigh me, post scarily legalistic PBS Medicare form
* basic chores - shower (done) do dishes, 1 floor, tidying, 15 minutes gardening
* Friday chores - change sheets on bed
* no separate exercise pact, because I'll be going for a walk; stretching, strengthening, meds.
* make stock
* get mtx injection

* try, try, try to keep myself happy here. Options:
- listen to the Proms this afternoon
- gardening spree
- video marathon, if the mtx leaves me too tired to do much else
- manicure / pedicure / dehair
- go out and have a cup of tea
- phone someone
- go to the movies

Ivy I hope they say yes to the Humira and that it doesn't take too long.

I gave up on being a decent patient and called my Rhuemy for the second time this week and begged. She said I could go ahead and take the mtx. So I took it and now am tired (I did not wait until just before bed like I normally do-I swallowed it the second we got off the phone).
My pacts for the weekend remain the same
teach friday and saturday
behavior plan
Sleep and watch football.

Eventually I will get some of it done.

4.20 pm. I've had the mtx (zzzzzz) and been to the doctor, filled in the forms, had the blood taken and been weighed. Have also done the dishes and changed the sheets on the bed.

No gardening because it's raining - I got drenched walking to the doctor's, but at least I got to listen to the Proms on my walkman while walking there and back :-)

OK, for the next 30 minutes I want to:
* start making the stock
* put away 50 things

And then I can crash with doona and DVD and have an early night.

I hope you're feeling rested by now, sj.
