Why do you have a blog if you aren't gonna WRITE ANYTHING???!!!

I know - I have been a lax, slacker sluggard. The only thing I've posted on here recently has been bitching and moaning. I'll be better, I promise. It's just that right now I'm not sewing and, honestly, not very interesting.

I couldn't sleep last night because my right knee was bothering me. When I got up I couldn't bend it without a stabbing pain. Another joint inflammation flareup - the manifestation of the inflammation is called Hench-Rosenberg syndrome. It has hit me nearly everywhere on my body that bends during the last fifteen years, generally one joint at a time - even my jaw once. Shoulders and knees are the worst. It comes on fast and disappears fast. The pain only lasts 24 to 36 hours but while it's there it's excruciating to move the affected joint. It's an autoimmune thing, like rheumatoid arthritis or Lupus. The worst part is that I'm a grouchy mess while I'm hurting.

And, no more birdwatching. My baby birds flew away from their nest by my back door yesterday and I didn't even get to see them go. I noticed the day before they were standing up and stretching their little wings. Now - poof. Gone. Wherever you are, little doves, Godspeed.

So sorry to hear you're not feeling up to snuff. It's good (?) at least that you know it will end soon. Thinking of you!

Sorry that you're not felling well.
I hope you are feeling better soon.

I have a set of doves eating my bird seed & 2 sets of Robin's and I can't tell you how many Cardinals that there are!

I don't know what the little black birds are called though...
