a trip to the ER


Had the hubby take me to Emergency on Saturday morning ... my back was even worse, no sign of improvement. Thankfully there was only one other person in the waiting room, yippie! I was so afraid I'd wait for hours, in pain. Still it was two and a half hours before I got to go home WAH! I was so miserable.

Anyway, prognosis = back strain. Had xray taken and given pain meds. Doctor says recovery time varies, averages about a week. Only the merest wisp of a hairs improvement, so frustrated. 

So tired of sitting and laying around ... whineeeeeeeeeeeeeeee

Happy week to everyone! Don't pick up any boxes that are too heavy for you or climb on ladders and pick up heavy boxes, like this complete nincompoop!!!

OUCH and a bit of blabbering

Throwback Thursday - late 70's ...
Having fun at the pool - look at the size of those glasses!!!

argh. I had this grand plan of simplifying my life and getting rid of stuff and I was really making head way. But boy, did I ever over do it! I strained my back and now it hurts to move. OUCH! whimper whimper whimper

Yesterday I had fun working on my family genealogy on, iPads are a wonderful thing for those unable to get up off the couch due to their labors hahaha ... I am hoping to get some letters written to relatives today, in the pursuit of more info and familial connection. I found letters from a distant family member (written around 1990) to my mother, who was interested in researching our shared ancestors too. Fingers crossed he's still alive please please please, he'd be in his 80's now.

And since I'm out of commission over here, while I'm resting, I'm also house cleaning my computer life and doing some "UN-Pinterest-ing" ... I had Followed every board of so many pinner's, ay yi yi ... so now unfollowing boards I have no interest in. This may be quite a project LOL!

Wish I had a book I was excited about to read - read anything good lately? I need a page turner! I am reading a good book but it's HUGE and I feel my interest waning ... I have a hard time hanging in there with long books these days. Missing the days of reading paperbacks at the beach or by the pool during the summer. 

It feels like summer over here already ... warm days and hubby's summer break quickly approaching. 

Hope this finds you all well and happy!
