Stormy Weather

It is a stormy Monday morning here in the Midwest. All those years when I worked I would dream of being able to snuggle in a blanket on the couch with a good book on mornings like this. Now I can and it is just as wonderful as I thought it would be.

The poor dog in the bottom picture had been out for a walk and was making a dash home.

This is going to be a busy week, my sisters and I are giving my niece a baby shower Saturday and Saturday night we are having the whole family over at her house because my brother and his family ( her Dad) are coming in from PA for the shower and we have not all been together for a long, long time. It is going to be the biggest shower we have ever done, 82 so far! I have a to do list a mile long.

I think I posted that the Dr. came back with a firm diagnosis of psuedo prophyria, which means I stopped taking the NSAIDS last Thursday, needless to say Wow do I hurt. I have been taking these kinds of drugs since my 20's and I didn't know how bad my joints had gotten. But the Dr. called this morning and they have a new drug for me to take, which should not effect my skin!! Yeah! Still have to wear sunscreen head to toe every day, but that's ok, I can do that. I am hoping the new drug will work and this will be just a blip on the screen. Unfortunely it will take about a month for my skin to be completely healed, but I should not get any new blisters.

Today I am finally getting my hair cut, YEAH. Believe it or not it has been six months since I have had it cut. This winter in AZ I decided to go really short, YIKES!!!, needless to say I hated it and have been letting it grow out ever since. If it looks even reasonably good I will post a pictue tomorrow.

Hope everyone has a good week.


  1. Yay for rain...we even had a nice downpour last night...did we ever need it! Snuggling on the couch with a good book..does it get any better than that?? Have fun at the baby shower...

  2. I love now having the freedom to do nothing but read if I want.
    Sorry to hear about the pain since you quit taking the NSAIDs. Please let me know if the new prescription works for you. I don't care for NSAIDs but my arthritis really needs something.
    Have a great day Joyce Ann.

  3. I agree with you....I, too, used to dream of being able to stay home when the weather was bad. This was the perfect day to snuggle on the couch with a good book or a good movie! Unfortunately, today was one of the days I work at my part-time job so I couldn't treat myself to that indulgence. I hope your new prescription works well and you get all healed up in record time!
