Happy Happy Joy Joy!

Well I'm at work and have found a small respite in between clients. Today the sun is shining and it is delectably warm outside. I keep sneaking out back just to soak up a few rays. Now I've got music playing on my computer (from my blog playlist) and am sitting here feeling happy. Really and truly deep down in my gut happy. I suspect this feeling is a combination of sunshine, music and prednisone. Yup. Steroids.

You see I am an asthmatic and I haven't been breathing right since I got sick last month. So yesterday I started a short course of prednisone. If I could I would stay on prednisone forever - it makes me feel all is right with the world (not so for some folks who report extreme crabbiness while on said medication). But for me steroids are definitely a good thing. I can breathe. My allergies clear up. My eczema goes away and I am ebullient. Oh if only these drugs didn't cause long-term weight gain and adrenal dysfunction. Ah well. I'll just enjoy it while it lasts.

And now I think I'll sneak back out in that sun. I hope you are all having a great weekend!


Things I'm Loving Today:
  • Sunshine!
  • Breathing like a normal human being.
  • Discovering a trail along the canal behind our clinic.
  • Eating healthy all weekend (lots of fresh fruits, vegetables and grains).
  • Music!
Things I'm hoping for today:
  • Minimal jury duty next week.
  • One more day of sunshine.
  • Inspiration for tomorrow's dinner (what to cook? what to cook?)
  • A clean house when I arrive home tonight.
  • A flash of photographic creativity (my camera is feeling neglected).
  • A decrease in my heart palpitations (which seem to arrive each and every spring and correlate with Juniper season. Hmmmm).

I need to get some of whatever you guys are taking! ;)

I'm sorry that you needed to go on Prednisone, but glad that it's making you feel good!
