Spring Break Zooms on by...

Where did it go? What did I do?

* I graded a lot of 6th grade poetry anthologies filled with lines of similes, onomatopoeia, alliterations, and metaphors that made me grimace, smile, sigh, and laugh.

* I got my first pedicure. I'm not completely sure I liked it. I'm not sure I'll have a second pedicure.

* I accompanied man of the house to the doctor to investigate some strange symptoms he has had and basically he's fine and I'm glad.

* I spent a lot of time following the horror in Japan. 

* A this moment I am watching us attack Libya. I want to say "Really? I get it, but do we really need to do this now?" 

* I spent one day at work planning for the remainder of the year. These next nine weeks will be the toughest, but there are just nine weeks left!

RA Update - I think the Cimzia is working. I'm still stiff in the morning and there is pain, but I am feeling so much better. I have been on my treadmill every day and have even walked the dogs. I see my doc in April and she may add Plaquenil. If the Cimzia keeps working and she adds the Plaquenil, then remission might be possible. Not probable, but possible.

Bradford Pear Watch (corrected)

As Mr. Dumbles slept (on Zoe's bed!)...

spring crept up on the Corgi sisters.


This Bradford Pear is getting ready to POP!

 I absolutely love it when the pears bloom. They all do it within hours of each other. Bare vistas are transformed over night, and "Poof!", it is spring.

Zoe Zoe says "To heck with spring. Bring on summer!"
