The Last Day of School

Well...we made it and we still have 4 members to our family. I though for sure we would have been minus at least one son, if not both. Now let's see if we can make it through the summer.

As I say..."One step at a time".

Starting Monday morning the boys are taking tennis lessons with the town. Gotta love the taxes...$15 for 18 lessons! (At least my taxes are good for something.)

Besides that, we have no plans (for the weekdays).

I really need to make plans.

I'm Dealing

I wasn't really too sure of how well I'd be dealing with having R.A....but I'm dealing just fine.

Now all I need to do is find the right meds, and I'll be good. I had an allergic reaction to the first new medicine the rheumatologist gave me. Having a little bit more acid problems with the second, but with the help of another medicine(when taken as regularly as I was already supposed to be), it's okay. Now just a little change with my Remicade...and everything should be back to "normal". As normal as I can be anyway.
