    Hey all!

    I haven't been around lately because I haven't been feeling very well, but it turns out that it wasn't lupus that was causing my problem! About a month and a half ago my doctor put me on a new BP med. The side effects of this med are what was making me feel so bad! UGH! don't I have enough trouble without my doctor adding to it? I stopped the med yesterday and already feel better!

    It is going to be a busy Summer! lots of home improvement projects to do! My fiance' just finished putting in the floor in our bedroom, I bout paint for the kitchen and the master bdrm, got some new tile for my kitchen backsplash and master bathroom. I bought 10 tree's for my yard and still have to fix my shower grout. We did put some plastic over the shower wall to keep the water out. The shower is the project that I am absolutely dreading! so many things to do, but no set time frame in which to do it, so I don't kill myself!

    We are going on vacation in July to San Francisco and Norther California. It sould be fun! No matter how many time I go there, I always find new stuff to see and oo! Plus I get to see my ffavorite Aunt who is 86 and can run circle around me! she is a very cool lady!

    So that's what has been going on with me. I will try to check in more often, but like I said, it's a very busy time for me and Summer is alwys a very slow time for this board...

    Have a great day!

    With love, with patience and with faith, we'll make our way.
