Locked out

This afternoon, I accidentally locked the keys in my car.  I’m just gonna peg this as a blonde moment!  I took my sister to a hair appointment, and as I sat patiently waiting, it dawned on me that my keys were not in my purse.  Before we exited the salon, I said to Jackie, “There is a good possibility that I locked my keys in the car”.  Sure enough, there they sat…on my seat, just chilling.  We both laughed, and mom came to save the day ten minutes later with the spare key.

Please notice the disgusting amount of pollen on my window.

While we are on the subject of cars, I took this photo awhile ago because sometimes my purse likes to serve as a disco ball.  Party in the passenger’s seat!

If you have been following along with my blog over the past few weeks, you will notice that I have been talking about having a head cold.  16 days later, I still have a small cold, it’s truly unreal.  I am guessing that according to the large amount of visible pollen, it is probably just allergies.  I have been experiencing some serious wrist pains over the past week, also.  Yesterday I felt as though my wrist was useless, but today it is tolerable.  I have come to expect the unexpected with rheumatoid arthritis.

I would just like to mention that I feel so blessed by my readers, especially when I am having rough days with my health.  Your kind words of encouragement mean the world to me.  So, thank you, for you can brighten my day when I need it.  P.S. I plan to further explain this later, but, God has completely been rocking my world, in a good way, and once things start to shape I will keep you all updated.

Until next time, don’t forget to double check that you have your keys before locking the door.

The alligator

Yesterday, Brad and Lindsey (Braden’s parents) had to go to a rheumy appt. for Brad, therefore resulting in a Braden day on Tuesday!  I had so much fun with him.  We played with Tonka trunks, watched Sesame Street, he chased me around the basement for a good 10 minutes & then later on he decided to set up a jungle in front of the tv.  I’ve added another “you used to do this” to my list, that I am determined to tell him when he’s older.  As he was carefully extracting all of the animals from the basket, he found an alligator toy.  Background story behind the alligator- a few weeks ago Jackie and I showed Braden how to “feed” the animals by placing small cereals into the alligator’s mouth, which resulted in the cereal piece falling into the alligator’s hollow stomach.  In order to get it out, we were smacking the alligator against the ground and thought it would be funny to add spitting sound effects.  Well, yesterday, when Braden found that alligator, he began shaking the alligator… against my head.  I guess it’s partially my fault, but needless to say, the alligator in return needed to be hidden.  Win some, lose some.

talent and love is in the air.

Last year, on Valentine’s Day, about 3-4ish in the afternoon I was hiding in my bathroom, convinced a “killer” was in my house.  I literally climbed out of my bathroom window to escape.  No really, this is a true story, except in the end the noises I heard turned out to be the bathroom door (wood) expanding after I showered.  Oh a day in the life of Becca.  This year though, I was blessed with a beautiful bouquet of colorful flowers, delivered, with a cute note attached from Matt.  I’d say this year was more enjoyable by a ton.  However, last Valentine’s Day also happened to be the same day I had my first conversation with Matt, the night I actually met him…at McDonald’s…explaining the above story in detail.  He laughed and thought I was silly.  Good thing he didn’t think I was a lunatic.

This past weekend, Matt took me to see Aaron Gillespie sing(I mentioned this in my previous post).  We had a PERFECT night, worshiping and enjoying true talent.  There were only about 150 of us at the concert, so we had a chance to actually meet Aaron.  He couldn’t talk for to long since he had a flight to catch and because there were fans behind us waiting, but he was very kind and was more than willing to take a picture with us.

Whenever I have lots of plans, even remembering that I have RA seems to fade into the corner of my mind.  I don’t feel much pain when I am so happy with things to do.  Of course there are pains though.  Just last night, randomly my left elbow started to ache.  I was trying to bend and lift my arm and it would lock up and get stiff.  Today it seems to have gotten better.  It’s a constant roller coaster, up and down, never knowing when the next drop off hill of pain is going to attack.

I’ve really enjoyed the large amount of encouragement I have received from many of you because I am blogging.  I apologize that it’s been a little while since I’ve posted, I promise it’s only because I have been busy with many plans.

 

(THANK YOU FOR THE FLOWERS MATT!) Aren’t they gorgeous!?

Just for your information, there are only 34 days left until Spring officially starts.  The amount of giddiness I have is building because I miss seeing the sunshine and sitting outside reading!  Unfortunately, because of the medication I am on called methotrexate, I have to lather on plenty of sunscreen because I will most likely have skin sensitivity to the sun.  I used to love to lay out in my back yard and attempt to get tan-never worked because of how pathetically pale I am.  But, I can’t do that anymore…truly bums me out.

In my previous post, I featured Greg & Mary Hartman’s websites and since I know plenty of talented people, I will feature my brother Doug in this post.  Doug is 25 and he just recently moved to L.A. and lives with our older brother Ted.  Doug’s painting skills blow my mind.  I truly believe that once he gets connected with the right individuals and continues to network, he will go very far.  He would like to collaborate with Ted, because Ted is immensely artistically talented as well.  I’m telling you, everyone in my family has that talent EXCEPT me!  I know he would appreciate it if any of you would like something painted, he’s always looking for commission work(I do believe that is what it is called).

Lastly, also on the last post, I showed a preview of what my DIY Valentine’s Day gift was for Matt.  Well…TA DA…here is the final result.  He really liked it!!

Until next time, keep jumping out of bathroom windows?
