My disability hearing is on Monday. It has been close to two years since I applied and more than two years before that since I got sick. Five years ago this month I hiked the Grand Canyon and was in such good health. A year later reactivated Epstein Barr Virus which led to all of this. My fatigue is barely livable. People have this worse than me, but I am not sure how they go on. It is the biggest challenge of my challenging life. So hoping I get disability since I am really unable to work. I can sew for a few hours at a time again and I can read a lot because I am laying down and/or listening at the same time I read or only listening. I just finished OT and am still in PT where they are trying to get me stronger, but it is slow going because more activity means more sleep and more pain (lactic acid in legs from two minutes on my sitting elliptical type thing). It is crazy!
Currently reading "War and Peace" and "Jefferson's Sons."

These are all of the books I read in February 2022. I think I have a new record. I did listen or listen/read to many of them. This is the upside of so much time in bed or in the recliner.
I am also working on my March American Patchwork and Quilting UFO which is Packer Bliss. I had already made enough parts in green for a complete top last year when I decided I should do all the parts in yellow and make two Packer color quilts instead of a green one. Always lots of people to gift them to. I am about 70 blocks in on the yellow sixteen patches already so this may actually happen this month--or at least one of them. I am one ahead on my UFO list, so if I do not finish the second one I will slot in when the finished one is pulled.
