Sorry I haven’t updated in a while but I’ve been busy working at a new temp job for the last month and doing a million other things - doctor’s appointments, photography stuff, volunteer work, passing out on the couch, etc. Last weekend was a busy one, but it was pretty good. The Arthritis Foundation’s annual Arthritis Walk was held at a lovely park in Edina last Saturday morning. I volunteered to take photos again for my local chapter, The Upper Midwest Region. Luckily it was a perfect, beautiful day for the walk and a lot of people participated in the event, raising money for the Arthritis Foundation. Also exciting, a few of my photos were shown on the local news broadcast later that night (KARE 11 News/NBC) and I was credited for them (this did not happen last year)! As soon as I get a chance I’ll upload the photos to the MN chapter’s Shutterfly site:

I’m driving up to St. Cloud tomorrow morning (EARLY! auuugh…6:30) to take photos for the Arthritis Foundation. There’s an arthritis fundraising walk going on there, similar to the annual one in the Twin Cities and the JAM walk I volunteered for in March. It’s a really nice course/path by the river and I’m looking forward to it. I just hope I can drag myself out of bed and get there in time. I am NOT a morning person, and I’ve had to wake up super early every day this week for Census training. It will be worth it though. Let’s hope I get some good pictures (I’ll post them on here sometime soon, probably).
Sleep…sleep…I JUST WANT TO SLEEP. uhhhhhh.
And my body is hurting worse as I wait to get accepted for Remicade assistance. I worked two hours this morning for the Census and then 5+ hours at Dan’s typing/data entry. By the time I left there my wrists, hands, and shoulders were throbbing. My right hand is starting to swell, too, which is worrying. I just hope my application with the Health Well Foundation goes through next week. Why must these things take so long? I need my drug now! I refuse to go back on prednisone.
ok, goodnight invisible readers
