Dreaded Jeans

February 13, 2015

Today was a mild flare day. The last few days have been very busy and I did more than I should have allowed my body to do and it has resulted in a mild flare.

Despite the body aches, I donned my dreadful jeans and “real” bra in place of my usual comfy yoga pants and sports bra in order to attend my oldest daughter’s Valentine’s party at school. Even though it would only be a couple of hours, I knew the jeans and bra would hurt on my skin and cut into my shoulders; however, it would be worth the excitement on my daughter’s face when she saw me at her party.

Turns out, she had no idea I would come and she was beyond excited! So worth it! My nephew also goes to the same school so my sister went, too. We had a great time visiting the kids and having some sister time.

After I got home, Tim and I decided to have a family movie night. We made a giant fort in our living room that encompassed the couches and television. We ordered pizza and had a candy buffet afterwards. We watched Alexander and the Terrible Horrible No Good Very Bad Day. Clevinger family movie night was a complete success!

Sometime between the school party and the end of the movie, I became very ill with sneezing, stuffy nose, and sore throat. I’m in bed early tonight because my body aches have made the sinus congestion worse. My head feels tight and light headed.

My feet are achy and the burning pain in my right shoulder/neck area is still there. My fingers are flamed and stiff. I feel miserable, but I’m looking forward to giving my kids their small Valentines gifts in the morning.

Good night.
