Lupus is a chronic inflammatory disease that can affect various parts of the body, especially the skin, joints, blood, and kidneys.



I have Lupus, or so the Doctor says……I have spent the last few months in lots and lots of pain, exhausted but trying to push thru.  To be honest, some days I felt like I was dying.  It was just so hard to get up and get dressed, let alone go to work but somehow I managed.


I guess a diagnosis is always good…. so you know what you are up against but it is also frustrating.  Frustrating when to your diagnosis; there is no cure, but I am also relieved that its not something worse……and trust me, I do feel blessed for that.  I am very aware that it could be much worse.  So I have made a pact with myself to complain as little as possible and to face anything that comes my way with as much grace as I can muster.  I will take each day as it comes and do my best to get better for my family and for me.




I have had an ad running for the puppy for the last week and have talked to more IDIOTS than I can even mention.  The only person I felt good about was a man who lives about an hour away but will be in town Friday for a funeral and would also like to stop and see the puppy at that time.  He had to have his dog put to sleep due to old age and has 3 boys who would like another dog to grow up with.  I pray this works out!  It is time for the puppy to move on, I am growing too attached to him. 




My oldest twins turn 17 today so yesterday I took half of the day off of work and we had a girls day of beauty……hair, nails and foo-foo-girlie stuff.    We all had fun.  I must say it is amazing to watch your children grow up….even more amazing to watch them turn into wonderful young adults full of promise.  I can’t explain how proud of them I am, both working and doing really well in school.  Really, really good kids……I love them so much!  Happy Birthday Girls…. Mom loves you and is SO, SO proud of you!!.




With my part of my tax check I decided to purchase my sister new furniture.  She recently got a new apartment and moved along furniture that I gave her over 5 years ago….that wasn’t the best to begin with, and is now broken down and in need of being retired.  (Retired to the trash bin.)  She had a piece of cardboard under the cushions to try to keep people from falling thru the middle to the floor.


I decided to surprise her with all new furniture!!!…. and it will all be delivered today.  She is going to be so shocked and happy.  I cant wait for her to call me and tell me its there.  J  I feel better about buying that for her, than anything I could have bought myself.  I cant wait for her to call me!  I am so excited!
