Thanks to my Humira injections, my psoriasis has improved to a stage where I can not only walk without my cane, but I can now spend some time shopping :) For a while hubby was doing ALL of the shopping as I wasn't able to stay on my feet for longer than a few minutes at a time (and those few minutes were agonizing). Some days are still better than others, but overall things are so much better than they were less than a month ago (I started the Humira on June 22). I am positively THRILLED :)
Hubby and I went to Buffalo on the weekend for a bit of a shopping trip. We went to a Lavender Festival in Niagara on the Lake, then headed across the border to visit a couple of Joanns stores :D Joanns didn't have anything on sale that I was interested in so I only picked up a couple of books, a little bit of fabric and a few notions. We also hit Aldi (thanks to Kim & Heather for telling us about that fantastic store a year or so ago) and stocked up on cream cheese, shredded cheese, sliced real cheese, butter and some pantry items :) My feet held up for the entire trip (we left at 9:30 a.m. and got home at 10:00 p.m.) - life is GOOD :D
I've gotten a little bit of sewing done in the last week or so - some bibs for a friend who's expecting her first grandy in September, and some more zipper bags. My son gave me some old jeans he had worn out (poor child thought I'd actually FIX them for him - instead, I cut them into as much useable fabric as I could, HAHAHA) and I used them as the basis for a bunch of the bags - waste not, want not! I'm so happy to be able to sew again!!
