A few random thoughts as I lay in bed sick.
While teaching Thursday night, I realized I had caught whatever has kept my daughter home all week. By bedtime I had chills and by morning was running a fever and had body aches. As of Monday morning, I'm still in bed. Surprisingly, I haven't been sick much since starting Enbrel in 2010, ...

Things to be happy about today:
1. Lunch is packed for my high school daughter. I like sending her off with nutrition and a little bit of me.
2. An omelet is cooking for my son and me using leftovers from the mini omelets I made for a school party yesterday that were a hit!
3. A plan to get things done today. 
4. Officially on spring break from one of my two schools. 
5. 50-60's in the forecast all week!!!! 
6. Flare has moved on. Yay.
What are you happy about today? ‪#‎happiness‬

Not that saying good-bye to a flare is a small thing!

I've been eating gluten free for over ten years now! What seemed impossible in the beginning seems very normal now. #glutenfree

Do you remember reading "Are You There God, It's Me Margaret?" by Judy Blume? I'm Margaret, only an adult version and instead of anxiously waiting for puberty, I often wonder if there are any "I must, I must, I must increase my bust" exercises I can do to hurry the menopause process along.
