Back to it...

I'm in my pre-Humira flare, and it's HOT, so I'm going to keep it small today.

* basics - make bed, do dishes, tidying, shower
* exercise (done, but will do more) and stretch
* shine my kitchen and bedroom "sinks"
* do paperwork. Yes, all of it.

Try to:
* ring someone and chat

Bonus:
* go to church
* do grocery shopping

And:
* pack suitcase
* move to Antarctica tongue where it should be a bit cooler

You guys should come here (Chicago) it's supposed to be frigid Tuesday and we have blizzard warnings.

- make a proper dinner
- clean the floors (mud from snow keeps being tracked in)
- if the roads are acceptable -- attend a play group or visit my office to show off my little girl
- finish the book I am reading so I can attend the book group in the evening (only 1/2 way done, but I read it before)
- take all of my Pentasa

Have a great day. Stay cool, while I try to stay warm.
Hoping to stay in remission after the birth of a healthy baby girl. On Pentasa during my pregnancy, went med-free 2 months to nurse (stupid), but back on Pentasa and still nursing.

What's the book, hj?

Jo, I still owe *you* a letter! I started it in August and never finished it. (Blame the government and the Humira mess)

How old is the puppy? How long have you had it?

"Busta" is 9 weeks old and we got him on the 30th December, an early birthday present for my son, we wanted him to spend time with the puppy before school gets back and help with training him.

I can still write to you and then you can 'owe' me a letter, mine will probably be a long winded one, its been so long and lots to tell and whine about lol

Oh, that's not good. Whine away, Jo. I'll listen.

Just so you know, the unanswered letter is nothing personal. I have a folder full of letters that need replies. I just don't have the mental energy to write much at the moment. I think it's the fibro.

The Birth of Venus by Sarah Dunant. I thought I didn't like it when I read it before, but now I can't remember anything after the first 10 chapters. Maybe I just got busy and never finished it.

The daughter of a wealthy merchant in 15th century Florence, who is too smart for her own good. She enters a marriage of convenience to be free to be an artist, but is tempted by a dangerous attraction ... At the same time the city is being strongly influenced by the sermons of a very strict monk who opposes the art and excess that the girl grew up with ... And there are a lot of gruesome murders of sinners across the city too.

Send some warm weather this way please?
I haven't done any pacting for a while either. It feels a little empty!:

-Renew FAFSA
-Call school telefund for part time job
-Homework, homework, homework
-Time aside for work on html tags
-Register for math course online portion...35 extra dollars :(

-Budget...AGAIN


inflamed, setting time aside for reading is a great idea! I have been trying to get in at least 30 minutes to an hour every day with 'Atlas Shrugged' and 'The Devil's Chaplain.' The one you're reading sounds pretty interesting!! It sounds a little bit like Ann Rice's 'Cry to Heaven' but that one might be a little offensive to some..

Ooh, Atlas Shrugged. I loved that book!

Good luck putting away the Christmas tree, Undone. You're ahead of me: I've only done half of my post-Christmas clean-up.

Lmills, Ivy -- I loved Atlas too. I read it while on vacation, but couldn't it down. Everyone else was at the beach and I was inside reading. :)
