I thought I would post another update, I am going to try hard to keep up to date on my blog posting. I can't let my daughter show me up! It is school holidays at the moment and I started a new blog for her to give her something to do, and she is taking to it like a duck to water. I have lost count of how many posts she has done! It will be good practice for her writing skills and her typing skills and she seems to really be enjoying it!
I had my 3mthly appointment with my rheumatologist and he agreed to take me off the methotrexate. I feel so much better off it. My pain is slightly worse on it so far (could also be coincidence) but at least now I have a little more energy and can think straight! I am feeling much more hopeful about getting things done and doing more designing. I am glad to not be on such a toxic drug anymore as well.
The kids have been having a wonderful time over the holidays and are only just now starting to be at each others throats. We went to the movies to see Despicable Me in 3d and they LOVED it. They have also been playing with clay and making things out of clay to paint and put on display. Earlier in the holidays they made some sock puppets. They turned out really well and they had lots of fun making them.
I have been feeling quite well over the holidays, I think it is the extra sleep! Sleeping in seems to make a big difference for me and I don't need naps at all when I sleep a bit longer. I need to try harder to go to bed at a decent hour during the school term!
Kyan is growing up so fast and slowly stopping his tantrum throwing. He still throws the occasional tantrum when he is tired, usually over food, but they are fewer and farther between now thank goodness! He is becoming such a delightful and happy little boy and I am so proud of him.
Jasmine is heading fast into growing into a tween. Eeek! It is going way to fast for me, but she has a good head on her shoulders and is very sensible thank goodness. She is still thoroughly enjoying school and continues to get really good marks. I hope she keeps up her love of learning as her school years progress.
Dean is still working hard and I am grateful for how much he does. I can't believe we have been married for 16 years. What a milestone in today's day and age! I wish I could do more to help him around the house but maybe now I am off the methotrexate that will be a little easier.
Anyway, a bit of an update on all of us, it has been such a long time since I have done one of those!
