As I mentioned earlier, today did not begin well. The hubs and I were meant to go to Washington, DC to ring in the New Year with friends. When I woke up this morning, I was so nauseous, sore and tired that I could not move without feeling like I was going to be ill. I was barely able to get out of bed let alone go to the airport and get on a plane. So the hubs made all the calls to get us out of our trip.
I wrote a couple of days ago that I’ve been going too much, and I think this was still the issue today. With a disease like RA, fatigue can be just as much of an obstacle as joint pain or the threat of infection. I’m finally at a place where medication really seems to be working and I do my best to protect against infections. Unfortunately, fatigue is getting the best of me now. However, because we are no longer traveling and also not working, the hubs and I can now spend these next couple days relaxing.
After sleeping for the first half of the day, I made my way to the couch in time for the very end of the Bears game. Even though the rest of the afternoon was spent on the couch, I knew I had to do something fun to save the day. The hubs and I had been talking for sometime about rearranging our living room after we acquired a few much needed furniture pieces.
So, with minimal effort on my part, Christmas decor came down, an old rug was removed and all the furniture except our large couch found a new home. Much to our delight, our small living room now feels brand new and much bigger!
Your place looks great! Sorry you had to miss the trip, but sure you will ring in the New Year in a warm & cozy way…May 2013 bring many days filled with joy!
