Lots of changes

05Aug10

Well this summer has been one of transition. My husband graduated from graduate school, we moved, he recently started a new job and…oh, I got pregnant. The reality of it all hasn’t quite set in. I haven’t posted for a while because it has been a rough couple of weeks and I didn’t want to […]


Apparently my current posting frequency is once a month. I have been so busy with my work life and my home life that the blog has fallen by the wayside. My husband and I are now officially trying to get pregnant. Nothing has happened as of yet, but at least we’ve crossed the threshold of […]


So I guess I haven’t written much because there hasn’t been much to tell. I’ve been really focused on being active and getting healthy. I’ve been losing weight and feeling good. My RA doc says that I’m doing well off the Methotrexate and that hubby and I can start trying to get pregnant whenever we […]


Another year…

I hope everyone had a nice holiday. I was able to go visit my family in Maine. It was a nice trip, although travel can be exhausting. Things have been going well so far. I have been staying active and trying to get plenty of rest. I’ve started going off my methotrexate to get ready […]


I can’t believe it has been so long since I posted. Unfortunately, I had some sort of virus and that put me out of commission for a while. I had a fever and had to hold my meds. This meant that my RA flared and then I was in bed because of that instead of […]


Well I just got back from a two day trip to New York City. I decided to go to the taping of the Daily Show after encouragement from friends. The results were…mixed. I asked the show if I could be accommodated, due to my difficulty with standing. They told me to ask for a chair […]


So I’ve been meaning to post for a while, but for some reason I haven’t wanted to blog. Work has been exceptionally busy. I work in a college and the students are back, so there has been lots of chaos. Things are always more exciting when students are here. Our walk went really well. There […]


The Arthritis Foundation interviewed me to put together a press release for this Sunday’s Arthritis Walk. On Saturday, my local paper picked up the story. The article does have one inaccuracy that I feel I need to mention when I show it to people. I had my hip surgeries when I went to graduate school, […]


MIA

I’ve been kind of off the radar recently because I’ve had a cold that just won’t quit. Last week it was pretty horrible and I stayed home from work for a day to recharge. It has progressively gotten better, but still over a week later is holding on. And since I’ve held my meds I’m […]


For the first time in a long time, I’ve acomplished everything I had put on my list to do today. Working out, cleaning, cleaning some more, laundry, and good old fashioned me time. Often, when I get to the second cleaning item on my list, I am just tired out. It is possible that all […]
