August 28th, 2005

Sunday. The weekend is shortly coming to an end and SO SOON. Grr. Where does time go? I spent the whole day today doing nothing, but knitting. I sat outside, enjoyed the weather and planted my rear end in a chair. I'm not even a teeny bit guilty for it either. I almost finished a project I've been working on for a monthy. A lovely baby hoody for my friend Suzanne. I feel so peaceful today. My boyfriend and I just hung around the house alone and spent time together. Well, he tackled a little lawn work, too, but I wanted nothing to do with that. I was too busy holding down the chairs to keep them from blowing away. Oh, I did do one more important thing today. I did go look for a syringe snipper at Cub Foods Pharmacy and Snyder Drug Store, but I couldn't find them at Cub Foods in the general pharmacy area and Snyder Drug and the actual Cub pharmacies were closed for the day. I'll have to venture out tomorow and see what I can find. B&D makes them and I'm sure they are everywhere, but unfortunately everything was closed. I don't think maybe I'm just clutzy, because I shut my eyes and stared at the ceiling. I almost fell over. I tried three more times. I think I may have a bit of an ear infection, which doesn't surprise me since I've been such a clutz the last two days and have been asking my boyfriend to repeat everything today. I ate a little more today again. I snarfed a couple of tuna croissants, with tomato of course, and I got this HUGE craving for chocolate chip cookies. My boyfriend was kind enough to comply with my urge and ran and got both! I baked them up just before bed and snarfed them down with some milk and off to bed I went at 11:00.

*****I think they were therapeutic because I didn't wake up once tonight during the night. I'll definately have to try that sort of therapy again. Soon. Like maybe tomorrow night. And the night after maybe, too. (wink)*****

What's a syringe snipper?

A syringe snipper is made by B&D and it just snips off the needle part so you can throw the syringe right into the trash. Rebif needles are the same guage as insulin needles so it works really well. I found one at Walgreen's and it was around $4.99. It clips off the needle and stores it in the unit until the unit is full. They are really small, too, almost the size of a keychain. Here's a picture of one.

Aha. Good idea. I'm a Rebif user, too (a couple years now).

Do you ever get headaches?? I've had a continous one since I started a week ago. Yes, the snips are righto :o) and super cheap and VERY handy.
