I could live in an area that just had Spring and Fall and be very happy! It's been warmer here in NE PA than usual, 40's during the day and 20's - 30's at night, but my body thinks it's about 12 below and is aching up a storm! My hands have never been this bad - I can't make a fist with either one today, they're too stiff and painful.
Grump, grump, grump! I'm very grumpy today, but I go for the first of two infusions I get every 6 months for my Sjogren's tomorrow, and am praying that will start to turn this old body toward better days. I want to be up in my craft room working on cards tonight, but that's not gonna happen.
Sorry to be so grumpy. Better days are ahead!
It's OK to be grumpy. I (we) won't hold it against you.
I've been having problems with the arthritis in my hands lately too. I woke up this morning and my little finger & ring finger on my right hand were numb. They've been that way all day. Don't know what's going on with it. I'm hoping tomorrow will be better. I, too, want to go to my crafting space and make some cards.
I've had to retype several portions of this email a couple of times. The fingers have little minds of their own tonight.
