The difference a year makes

Almost exactly a year ago, I was struck with the idea to create a blog as an outlet for my daily experiences with RA.  I was in pain almost constantly, barely sleeping, living on prednisone (which probably wasn't helping the not sleeping thing),  and had virtually no life outside of work and sleep.  
Now, a year later, I have more good days than bad most weeks.  I go out to dinner with my husband, I can even watch a movie from beginning to end.  

This year, we are making our second cross country move.  At the end of next month we will be moving back to my home state of New Jersey, almost 1,200 miles.  Can you imagine??  We've only been here since July 2013, when we moved from North Carolina.  

The Road so Far...
At least this time I won't be packing a whole apartment by myself- that was a little stressful.
So now, if I can keep myself on track to write when I'm supposed to- you guys should be in for some interesting experiences as we make ANOTHER ridiculously long move!

the new look, logo, and lifestyle for Face of Arthritis, which is supposed to, in the spirit of  New Year's resolutions make me actually take care of this blog for you all and for me.  Tell me what you think of the new look?  If you like the look maybe I'll revamp the text to match.
