I'm struggling. Struggling with stress and finances and often pain, more than normal. I'm not sure if it's the stress or the drops in Prednisone that are causing the extra pain. I also did some transcription and holy cow that was painful after sitting and typing. My hands hurt extra bad the next day and my ankles swelled up from keeping them down to press the foot pedal for the audio.
Also, I'm preparing to move soon and I don't know whether I want to move to Milwaukee or stay where I'm at. I'd be closer to the hospital that was able to find the Polymyositis, and it'd be easier to see family in Chicago from Milwaukee. I like the more urban/suburban atmosphere too. I have to research schools. I may just stay in this town another year to see how it goes with Noah's school. He has 25 kids in his class and it's too many, in my opinion. I just need to find a new apartment. This one is too expensive and too much to keep up with now that Noah's home for good.
Otherwise, Noah's been in swimming and I'm considering putting him in gymnastics, even though it's all girls from what I saw. He's been really interested in the Olympic sports and asked about how to do the things the gymnasts do. So, every day is something new and I just keep plugging along. I don't even want to think about the meds and weight gain I talk about at Fit Meets Fat.

A lot has been going on and mostly my Facebook followers get the scoop on what's new. I forget to update here, which is a sad sorry state for my readers...the ones I have left. I did learn something new about sponsorships for conferences yesterday, thanks to a fellow blogger. Other than that, I'll get around to blogging about my awesome lack of weight loss, my medication side effects - think rashes, and how we'll be moving soon. The latter is the most fun because I waver between Chicago and WI when I look at apartments. I'm seriously considering Milwaukee for various reasons.
That's all for now. We have a busy day today filled with doctor visits and then fun later in a pool, I hope. I'm over extended until Wednesday is all I know for sure. Ugh.
