Tuesday Miscellany

Due to the nasty weath­er, we resched­uled some of today’s planned dri­ving for tomor­row. We were able to bring home Katie’s friend C, though!

This morn­ing, shad­owkatt saw the pedi­atric rheuma­tol­o­gist who diag­nosed her with fibromyal­gia in 2000. The good news: she no longer fits the diag­nos­tic cri­te­ria for FMS. The bad news: she still hurts, there’s just no par­tic­u­lar expla­na­tion as to why. Gah!

So he put her on Cele­brex and Flex­eril and took her off the Naprox­en her pedi­a­tri­cian had pre­scribed. He sug­gest­ed that she work on strength­en­ing her mus­cles as much as pos­si­ble and increase her activ­i­ty lev­els. We’re going to check on the clos­est YMCA’s Pilates class sched­ules to add to dance and mar­tial arts. She may have an oppor­tu­ni­ty to work with hors­es at least once a week, too, but that’s still up in the air a bit.

We went by the mall before com­ing home to try to get a par­tic­u­lar sort of adapter at Radio Shack. The girls had to vis­it Hot Top­ic, of course. Katie found The Per­fect Boots for about $200 less than the last “per­fect boots” she iden­ti­fied, so that was worth a trip to the mall (her cur­rent boots, which she prefers to all oth­er footwear, are get­ting tight). 

sam­bear con­vinced me to stop and look at walk­ing sticks at a store that had a dis­play of them. Some were nice, but I’m still hes­i­tant. Maybe I’ll try one. I’m not sure yet.

I was very impressed with the good-smelling herbal heat­ing neck wraps at one of the kiosks. I did­n’t real­ly want to spend time shop­ping today, but if I’m dragged to the mall again any­time soon I’ll prob­a­bly try to reward myself with one of those.

I’m not sure if we’re going to try to do the longer trip tomor­row or not. It looks like the like­li­est day to accom­plish it, as there aren’t any appoint­ments sched­uled at the moment. We have a stand­ing din­ner with curiousmay9, though, and I don’t want to inter­fere with that.

I think I’m going to go back to my love­ly jig­saw puz­zle. It has kit­ties on it!
