Blame it on the weather

11 Apr

I unintentionally took a break from blogging, my apologies.  When you have a head cold, typing a post isn’t at the top of your “to-do” list.  For the most part, I have recovered, minus a semi-stuffy nose.  Unfortunately, last week I experienced a major flare up.  I was feeling terrible and did a lot of sleeping.  Not sure if my right wrist (the one that is almost bone on bone) has gotten worse, but, now I am able to actually feel the bones rub against each other when I bend my wrist…yippee.

I have successfully been transferred to a different rheumatologist as of last week.  I switched simply because of distance.  I am anxious to meet my new Dr. and hope he is as great as my previous one.  My appointment will be on April 24th.  I am assuming the appt. will include getting blood work done and new patient questionnaire’s.  I will keep you all updated!

I still am convinced the weather caused my flare up.  While Matt and I were traveling for our date night, we saw a few snowflakes.  Not too long ago I was wearing shorts and sandals.  Major weather mood swing.  We decided to dine at Cheddar’s, and celebrated our 11th month together!  *insert applause*

My favorite purchase this week:

The result:

I was in need of new mascara and after searching high and low, I found a new favorite.  I highly recommend this if you are looking to try out a new mascara.  I even got a compliment as I was picking up my medication from the receptionist who exclaimed, “I like your eye makeup! It looks nice!” *score

Until next time, go on a fun date 🙂

    Well, much like your health issues, our website has been fighting “flu-like” attacks of mal-ware & trojans, & other types of nasty internet viruses that can infect websites in a similar way to how cancer can effect the body. We’ve made some security changes, & your brother Ted of: has helped us increase our secuirty mechanisms.
    Now, we hope that we’ll be on the right track & can get back to building the original content of again.
    We are very interested in covering Genetically Modified Organisms, or GMO Food.
    We had a great radio guest recently who covered this health topic, & we’ll probably be adding content about that story. Our radio shows are linked at:
    We continue to look for more health contributors & wonder if you might want to come on an upcoming radio show sometime to talk about your site?
    Thanks again,

    The New American Media
