When I was working I had this marvelous to do list running in my head. In my 20's and 30's I carried a Daytimer to jot all sort of things down, but by my 40's I just had this visual mental bulletin board. What was really cool is that I could "... Read more

I just looked up the weather averages for today in Seattle. In my memory, the first week in August is always sunny and hot. The average was 79. Is that all? Today we are sitting in an overcast, cool, gray. So Seattle. I know the re... Read more

Had myself a good laugh on this word. Roofers were banging and tearing off the old roof early this morning, and my husband is like a kid in a toy store. He came into my room bright and early with his eyes glowing with new knowledge. He showed... Read more

A couple days ago the pain started to return, joints less stable and as of last night huge re-explosion of inflammation. My conclusion was that the methotrexate for how much I've learned to hate it was helping. I had my rheumatologist appo... Read more
