I wasn't going to say anything out loud because the Universe seems to want to jack me up whenever I start to feel good, but I figure you guys need an update.
I've been seeing a new doctor who is a bit of an arrogant jerk but I'm letting that one slide because so far I am agreeing with his opinion. He isn't convinced that I have RA and helped me to look at my previous records and see that too. Last year I was so sick and wanting answers that I was willing to believe the little signs and not realize that they didn't amount to much. Cryptic no? ANYWAY. New doc had me go off of all the chemotherapy I was taking and for the first time in over a year, I don't have that hazy foggy feeling like when you have the flu. I'm taking a ton of vitamins. I am trying a Fibromyalgia drug that I think might actually be working. I'll keep you updated.
In the meantime, I've got my Soccer Mom cape on full-time now. I didn't even get a break for winter. Skyler is in gymnastics. Even Matt is playing soccer in an adult league. We've got something going on every day and it's delightful.
I spend most of those practices sitting on the sidelines chatting with friends and working on crochet project after crochet project. I've become addicted to Ravelry. I blame my friend Yarn for introducing me to that particular awesome time-suck.
I'm still reading a lot (see my Goodreads lists over there ---------> on the sidebar). I usually give myself a goal of reading 50 books a year. I rocked it last year at over 60 but I'm way behind this year. I haven't been including crochet books but maybe I should. Hmmm. Have you read any of my recent reads? There are a few great ones I'd recommend. Sarah's Key was fantastic as was When We Were Strangers. Do you have any recommendations for me?
I'm hoping that my year-long funk is working its way out of my life and that I'll feel like gabbing more.
