Greetings to all of you wonderful people,
We have been having a heat wave in NY for the past two weeks. Lupus doesn’t get along well with heat and sun. Major reason I don’t care for the summer. For the last two weeks the household I live in was preparing for a graduation party. The same day my family was giving my brother and his wife a 40th anniversary party.
At home I helped with cleaning, cooking and I was out side with the men putting up the tent.
I like to prepare in advance, it’s less stressful. Not my daughter, on June 29th, we go shopping for clothes for three children and my daughter!! My daughter looked at every piece of clothing in the store!! Ugggh!! Then we had to go food shopping. Once the food was put away I had to prepare the food to take with us to the party. It’s a two hour trip to Long Island, NY from Brooklyn. I was tired before the party even started. However, I had a great time with my family.
After the party, my daughter and kids went on back to Brooklyn and I went back home in Queens. When I get home the party was over except the drunks were in the basement next to my bedroom. When my head finally hit the pillow I was out like a light. I spent all day Sunday in bed, doctor on Monday. I’m still very tired I think it’s a lupus flare. My arms are swollen and have a pimply rash all over. I used my sunscreen I hu brought an ugly floppy hat that I wore while I was out in the sun. I had fun and if this is punishment for it I’ll take it.
I was trying to get caught up with reading but it seems to be a never-ending battle. So I’m posting a poem I wrote about the BBQ at my brother’s house.
