An Ups and Downs Kind Of Week

It's been a week of ups and downs here.

The barometric pressure has been up and down. My joints have been swelling with the changes. Do you remember hearing old people talk about how they could tell what the weather was going to do based on how much their arthritis hurt? Now I AM one of those old people who says "there must be a storm coming, my knees hurt".

We had a hard time coming up with the last of Sorority Girl's Spring tuition. With another loan from Bank Of Grandma we made it. On the upside, we did her tax return and she'll get a refund large enough to pay for Fall Semester books.
She came to spend the night Thursday to make me laugh and smile. It worked.

I had been trying to take my Very Important Medication every other day, to avoid refilling my prescription. HORRIBLE, HORRIBLE, HORRIBLE idea.
I was sleeping way too much (from midnight to 4PM the next day) and dreaming all kinds of weird stuff. They weren't nightmares, just very vivid images and crazy events. Chalk that up as one stupid experiment.

I read a couple of books that I was looking forward to and they both disappointed me. On the upside, I'm almost done with the Super Secret Scrapbook Project.

Sunday is looking like it might be an UP kind of day.
Winery! Festival! Blues! Art!
And Another trip to Showcase Of Citrus.

Sorry that you are having such an anxious time. Must be something in the air - or the news! Feeling pretty ratcheted up myself.

Have you checked with the manufacturer of your medication to see if the have a prescription assistance program that can help you? I know I've seen coupons for free supplies of this.
