Not too much going on this week. I have been fighting off a mild sinus infection while working over the weekend. In addition to the long 12 hour shifts and fighting off the sinus, I did not take my methotrexate and missed an Orencia infusion, so my RA is making the most of the situation right now. Overall, I can't complain, I feel better after skipping MTX 2 weeks back to back and one infusion than before I switched to the Orencia. That's not to say that I don't hurt or that I don't have difficulty getting up and down or putting my shoes and socks on, but those are everyday things that I deal with. I truly don't know what it feels like nor do I ever expect to be pain free, ever again.
It's so cold I can't get out to do anything this week so I am cleaning up my music/computer room and doing a few things that I have been putting off. I bought some mp3's yesterday. I have an app on my iPhone that is called Shazam. If you hear a song that you don't know the name of, you open the app and hit the TAG NOW button and hold the phone toward the speaker. Within 20-30 seconds you have who the band is, the title of the song and the name of the CD, links to buy the song, videos and biographies and websites of the band. Amazing little app and best of all, it was a free app. I can't even imagine how big the database would have to be or the programming that went into this app, and they're giving it out free.
I have been working toward making my race bike street legal for dual sport rides that I do now. I finally tagged my bike yesterday, yep a full out woods race bike with a license plate on it. It looks pretty weird, but now if we get stopped, I will be legal. I have everything except turn signals on it. I am going to heat the shop up and put my new rear tire on later today.
I am so ready for some normal December temps so I can ride. The biggest part of December, we have averaged nearly 20 degrees below normal. Our daytime highs are what our normal overnight lows run for this time of the year. Have I told you lately that "I HATE WINTER". It never has been my favorite time of year, but I never hated it. Then enter RA, and it just flat out hurts me now. Oh well, tis the season to be hurting...falalalala.
