A little Hello...

One would think that with all this free time on my hands lately I would've found time to blog more.  Mostly, I'm just trying to get a routine established. I also have significantly limited my time on the computer. After all, the hours of sitting in a desk chair, and what it did for the pain levels, were the very reason I stopped working.

I had an MRI done shortly before I quit my job and finally got the results back. They found mild to moderate stenosis and some arthritis. For those not familiar with the term "stenosis", it is a narrowing of the joint space in the spine which, in turn, pinches the nerves in the spine.  This explains so much about the pain and numbness I've been experiencing. I see the rheumatologist in November, and am trying to find a new neurologist. Once that happens, I'll be able to figure out what the next step in the plan is to fix this.

I'm still on hiatus from Grace's story. But again, trying to stay off the computer.

I've had a lot more time to spend with "J", which I've really enjoyed.  I think it's been good for him, too. The dogs make me crazy, my husband is awesome, my dad is here and is a huge help when I don't feel my best, and I am now the proud owner of a cat named Ninja.

Ninja is the only pet in the house that is truly mine. She prefers me, naps with me, and is usually in my lap. We won't discuss the fact that I have a suspicion that I'm allergic to her. I just keep pretending it's not really happening. She's brought me a lot of joy.

I am also the proud owner of a kitchen aid stand mixer. I've spent many years coveting one. My dad bought it for me as a thank you for my part in helping him get moved. I still haven't used it, it's just too hot to bake. However, I can occasionally be found standing at the kitchen cabinet where it's stored, and muttering, "My precious..."  Not too much, but maybe just enough to make my family fear I might be Gollum's long lost cousin.

I'll try not to be so lax in my updates. I think I can handle sitting here long enough to make a couple posts a week.

Be back soon... :)
