TODAY IS MY BIRTHDAY!!!

Hello Everyone,

YES, YES it is my Birthday!!! Yay!! I will be 45 years old. Yeap 45 that's right. Although I don't have a problem with my age my body does. lol

I have had a week in a half full of unfortunate incidents. Not really bad ones just things popping up or happening that was easily solved but just in the way. I am not going to recap all of last week because it is just too much.

So I will start with Saturday. I was enjoying a great day with hubs and was looking forward to Sunday for when I get Ray. I was bending over to get something out of the dishwasher when I must have twisted wrong and hurt my back. So I was in moderate pain.

Now I just took Tylenol on Saturday and Sunday. Usually that is all I like to take as I don't like taking any thing any stronger. Summer and Josh brought Ray over and stayed so that we could see him. But I really missed our alone time together.

Monday while I was at work I could hardly sit still. I just couldn't get comfortable. So off to the doctor I go. I got an x-ray and muscle relaxers with some pain pills. Now I took both of them at the same time. Not realizing that I was only suppose to take one and then another one later. So I had a great sleep on Monday night.

Do you know how many times you drop things when your back hurts? It’s ok while the hubs is at home but when he’s not you have to find some inventive ways to pick things up. Also tying your shoes. What am I saying even putting on your shoes. I dropped my underwear Wednesday morning three different times. I am not even going to tell you the trouble I had putting on my bra. It is not an easy job with my boppies when my back is ok. Toting them around is a lot of trouble let alone hiking them up into my bra.

And putting on my pants. Let me tell you I can’t do it sitting down because I can’t bend over. So I have to put them on standing up. Which means since I can’t bend over I have to hike them up to waist level and then put my foot into the leg. That is easy enough for the first foot but even holding onto something it is hard to hike that second leg up there. Oh I have to do the same with the underwear before putting on the pants.

Now it’s time for my blouse. It’s hard to lift my arms up because my back hurts. I can’t bend because my back hurts. I can’t even describe how I got my blouse on because I don’t know how I managed it. Just let me tell you it took longer than the pants and underwear. The whole time my little Chihuahua is watching me. I’m sure if doggies could talk he would have a tale to tell. I think he was snickering at me a couple of times.

My body is also showing it’s age by the growing of whiskers. I have to take the tweezers to my chin a couple of times a week. Isn’t it enough that I have to shave my legs and underarms, wax my eyebrows and now my moustache? Now I have whiskers too. What’s next? Age spots?

Where is Harry Potter when you need him? Wave your magic wand and give a girl a new body!! I would appreciate it and so would my hubs. lol

So sing with me - Happy Birthday to me! Happy Birthday to me! Happy Birthday dear me, Happy Birthday to me!!!

Have a blessed day!!

Happy Birthday!!!

Have you tried going to the chiropractor? Might be worth it even if your insurance doesn't cover (as ours doesn't). Hubs went for the first time this year and swears ours is a miracle worker!

Ouch with your back - I did that a few months ago and it took ages and a couple of visits to the chiropractor to put it all back the way its supposed to go!
