Sunday Break Birthday Edition

Because there is no such thing as taking too many breaks!


37Today, April 18, is my birthday. How old am I turning? There’s a hint is on the left. A year ago my birthday faded somewhat into the background, as rheumatoid arthritis seemed to be the center of my universe. Not this year! The celebrations started on Thursday, and finally tapered down last night.


But today, it’s actually back to work. Tomorrow I start teaching a second class at the university where I am currently working, and must finalize the syllabus and prepare my presentation for the first lecture. My current class has exams midterms this coming week, so needless to say it’s going to be a busy week!


The dvd case was supposed to have Mel Brook’s History of the World, but instead has Woody Allen’s Love and Death. I had never even heard of this movie, but went ahead and popped it into the dvd player to see what is was all about. I loved it, and hadn’t laughed so much in a long time.


Toblerone and Almond Joys. Yum.


Stay tuned…for the next adventure of Rheumatoid Arthritis Guy!
