It's been a while since my last post and a lot of things have gone on during that time. I had my surgery and I'm not sure it is going to fix my problem. I go back to the doctor this Thursday so I am reluctant to be too happy about it yet. On a good note, since I have been hurting else where again ... my RA is basically non existent. It's really weird, but I think it is either that my body only recognizes one main source of pain at a time or my new job (see below).
I have switched to an 8 hour/5 day a week job in the pressroom (same company) and you would not believe how much of a difference it has made. I have more energy, have not been hurting and mentally I feel a thousand times better. I miss my days off and it will certainly impact my riding once I am able to ride again.
Donna and I went to Wakarusa this past Saturday. It has been a while since I have been to a large music festival, there were over 20,000 in attendance, and it was crazy. We saw Ozomatli, Mumford and Sons and Ben Harper & Relentless. I was tired (got off work at 7am that morning), sunburned and all of the walking hurt me but we both had a great day. We left at 10:30 that night and there was still one more band to take the stage, but we were both pooped.
