My latest article and comic strip is up over at MYRACentral.com. It's about my dating life, or rather, my lack thereof BUT I think I had an epiphany after my last prospect fizzled. Hopefully 2010 will bring me some opportunities to test out my new strategy and see if I have any better luck. . .
So I know that I'm lame for not having posted much lately. I don't have any good reason for being absent and delinquent. I haven't been in a bad flare, I haven't been up to anything spectacular; I just haven't been as motivated to write as much the last month or so. I'll be traveling some over the holidays to see family and friends, so unfortunately, I probably won't be able to pick up the slack much until after the new year and a work trip is over. BUT, I do intend to be a better blogger in 2010 and get back up to speed, so please bear with me in the meantime. I appreciate hearing from all of you via your comments and emails, even if it takes me a ridiculously long time to get back to you! I think I am still trying to absorb all of the huge changes my life has taken the last half of this year, and it's causing me to hibernate a little bit. And you know, it's winter, which always brings out my inner sloth.
One thing I have been busy doing is baking these last few days. Here are a few of my latest creations:
I hope that you all will have a lovely holiday season, and (in case I don't manage to post again until 2010) a marvelous start to the new year!
Several months back, I wrotea hypothetical post imagining what would happen if the popular reality TV show The Bachelorette featured a young single gal who happened to have RA. I myself have no desire to go on The Bachelorette, but there is one reality TV series that I secretly fantasize about being on: Dancing with the Stars.
Well, I am all moved in! For the most part it went well, and except for a few bruises and slightly achy finger joints and feet, I am (knock on wood) feeling pretty OK from it all, which is a good thing since I leave for Egypt TOMORROW!
While I'm away, the first of the Web MD series will go up on September 3rd. Here's the link so that you can check it out...hopefully it'll be good! I haven't seen it at all, so have no idea what the end result will be.
My latest article is up at MyRACentral.com, along with another great comic strip by Jane Samborski, so go over there and check it out!
Lastly, I will be checking in on my Facebook page as I'm able to in Egypt and Jordan, so if you are interested in getting updates about how I'm faring on my trip, make sure to check my Facebook page ove the next two weeks!
Hope you all have a wonderful end of Summer, and I'll be back soon.
One of the topics many of you have written to me about is weight loss. Like me, you not only got RA, but you also got the RA Freshman 15. Nearly two years after my diagnosis, I have FINALLY managed to take mine off! Read about it here and see the comic strip by Jane Samborski.
