It's been a while since I posted. I'm all backed up with things to write about. This post was originally started sometime in July. Please forgive my dated babbling but I wrote it & saved it as a draft so I'm posting it - with some editing
This year June was more busy than the holidays in November/December. I think this has to do with having children and a large extended family. My oldest daughter graduated (from preschool/junior kindergarten). She had a whole cap and gown ceremony (heck I've never worn a cap and gown-my small private school required girls to graduate in white dresses but it was worse for the boys who had to wear blue blazers with a school patch thingy on the pocket), she also had a big dance recital (her first), and about 3 different birthday parties or get togethers to celebrate the big 5. Thank goodness my wonderful husband took over the party planning this year & thus I was not in bed for a week after her party. When did kids birthday parties become such a huge (and seemingly competitive) thing? Topic for another time.
I finally decided that since one didn't exist, that I was going to start a Lupus support group in the Santa Clarita Valley using Meetup.com. The Moms Club of Castaic does it and because I'm a bit slow, it took a little while for it to dawn on me that I could start a Meetup.com group myself. Then I mentally stressed about the idea of being responsible for something, because I don't know if I'm going to make it out of bed on a regular basis. Then June came along and I it was event, rest, event, rest, event, rest, rest some more, see the doctor, rest, Kung Fu Panda 2 in 3D themed birthday party for daughter at the movie theater (hey that's all that was playing at the right time). Then I got an email that someone else had beat me to it and started a Lupus, RA, Fibromyalgia and everything related support group in Santa Clarita. So I went to the first meeting of the group to end my crazy June and then I rested some more.
But back to my original (way back when topic), I have a new thing to hide, along the lines of my previous post about how people actually think that my husband beats me because of my ever present bruises, I found some new ones (bruises that is) and although I don't know WHEN I got them, I know EXACTLY what they are from which is a rare thing...see if you can guess before I tell you...
This is my shoulder - Thought to self (Duh! Queen of the Obvious oh wait Princess of the Obvious and Jeez my Buffalo Hump looks HUGE in this picture! Move On!)
No! I can't get any paler, I already have a Vitamin D deficiency because too much time in the sun will cause a flare and thus I am a shut in (sort of).
Kinda looks like planets in one of those solar system dioramas you had to make in elementary school

I just realized that this post's title probably will give this away but oh well!
