My hand has gone a little crazy and I have not been able to do much of what I'd like to do...but I have done some things I have been putting off...such as cleaning out books and magazines, shopping, daydreaming, bossing the boys around, changing my diet, welcoming a new baby, saying goodbye to wonderful people (a few sweethearts have passed), getting surprise visits from my grandgirls, and my parents...and lots more stuff. I am trying to get back to better-than-normal here, so hopefully putting myself on a schedule will help my fuzzy brain!

To 'celebrate' my week of crappy prednisone (yep, the dreaded prednisone, probably prescribed because I laughed at my husband when he had to take it just a few weeks ago, paybacks are he**), I am giving away a new book that I received but do not need. It is a great book and sure to be wanted by many of you! Here's how I want to work it...TELL me something you are thankful for and I will add your name to the pot and draw for the Seams to Me book by Anna Marie Horner on Thursday morning. Please be sure to leave me with an email address or way to contact you. Good luck!!!!! and I hope you win!!!!! **Karen**

Oh how I HATE that fuzzy brain syndrome! Half the time I think it's fibro and the other half is just that I'm turning into my mother. I'm sorry you have to take prednisone.

Tonight I'm thankful that my oldest son will be coming home tomorrow - he's been up north and I've missed him. I don't think his brother has though.

It's good to have you back ~ fuzzy or not! I am thankful for so many things although when things are down, I have to try harder to remember that. I am healthy, have a wonderful family and friends ~ and even some great bloggy friends that always make my day brighter!

I'm so glad you're back - I was worried!!

One of the things I'm most grateful for is that for a while at least - life is on an even keel with my new medication. I'm so thankful to have gotten relief from the worst of the pain, and I'm so thankful that I can now take care of my family instead of having them take care of me. HUMIRA ROCKS!!! At least - it rocks right now while it's helping me - if it makes me grow a second head or something, I won't be so happy ... ROTFL!!!
