I know, I know, it's been a long time and everyone missed me. Ive had lots of stuff happening and some trouble with my internet at home. I disconnected from EVERYTHING.
The kids got out of school, I packed one for camp while packing all of them for a camping trip that they leave for 9 hours after the one who went to camp gets back. All this while preparing for the 1st time appointment with the new rheumatologist that was scheduled for the same time as when the kids pull away for their camping trip. (I had a choice of that time/day or 3weeks later.)
Later that same day I adopted a kitten (Allison) from the humane society to go with my 1 1/2 year old cat (Gilligin).
For the next 10 days I was completly unplugged. I screend my calls, I had avoided making dr appts for that week thinking I might plan something those days, so the calender was free, I didn't even attend church those days. I went to 1 movie, but for the most part I just relaxed. I didn't even do a lot of reading, but when I did it was a light fiction.
Most of my time was spent watching the cats get to know each other. They took to each other very easily. No big fights, just some arched backs from Allison and Gilligin would slap her on the head (w/o claws) when she pestered him too much.
My internet was down that whole time, but I was enjoying my quiet solitude.
Now that the kids are home there are sleepovers, movies, laundry and dr appts are back in the schedule. This is why i craved the quiet.
Anyway, I am serching for a set of gloves that have "gel" over the joints that can be warmed or cooled. Ive looked in my area stores, but I am unsure where to surch online. Has anyone seen a product like that, or know a good place to look. If I cant find one I will have to make one.
Now Im going to start reading what Ive missed these past few weeks.
