I woke very stiff and sore, but was determined to NOT take my pain meds this morning ,because I don't like to take them when she is home as they make me sleepy ,and I had big hopes of being able to accomplish a few tasks while she was eating breakfast and getting ready for school and shortly thereafter , you know ... before the pain got the best of me !
So I had this brilliant idea that I would do some of my stretches physical therapy had taught me , that up until this latest problem with my leg/back developed , I did every day, once or twice a day ...maybe loosen me up and allow myself a few extra moments to sit or stand ...UMMM BAD IDEA!!! First stretch into my brilliant idea and I was SCREAMING and grabbing the door frame for dear life...Needless to say , once I quit crying like the BIG SISSY, that I have apparently become , I took my meds and slowly paced the floors, I also decided while pacing to turn a few vintage Valentines ( that I had forgotten about until finding them while prepping for the Princesses party ) into ornies for my year round tree in my bedroom , because I could do that standing up , until Princess left for the bus stop , I then took myself back to bed...sigh !
I layed in bed for about 45 minutes until I got a massive leg cramp , and decided I best get up and walk around , while up I decided to throw a quick coat of acrylic paint on a few wood block/scraps I had before I layed back down . A quick Valentine décor project I thought I might be able to accomplish, as I could do it standing up !I ended up spending the rest of the day in and out of bed , lay down 40 mins, walk 5 ...repeat ...OVER AND OVER ! Needless to say this was one of my worst pain days out of the past few , it is what it is , just gotta keep smiling , making the most of it , and do what I can , every step no matter how small is better than no step at all!
Princess came home from school and I stayed up with her while she did her homework at the table , I stood and worked on myValentine block project and prepped some scrapbok paper for a project that I thought I could work on while laying in bed, when she left a bit later this evening , you see Wednesday is her Papaw Marks day off and that means "date night " with Granny and Papaw. They pick her up shortly after she gets home from school, she has dinner with them and hangs out until it's time to come home for bedtime , it's her FAVORITE night of the week !
Well there you have it , my chaotic day in a nutshell ! I sure hope these Dr.'s hurry up and find a solution for my pain issue or at least a way to manage the pain , as I'm not one to lay in bed all the time and it's driving me absolutely CRAZY !!! Wishing each of you the sweetest of dreams and until we meet again ...Ill always be ...just a lil raggedy ! hugs
|Forgot all about these great Vintage Valentines ...I got them in a swap a few years back from my dear blog friend Lynn ...had planned to use them for adornments for Valentines Dolls , however I think they will make far better ornies|
|My Aunt gave me this giant roll of cute red/white bakers twine|
|I took a small hole punch and punched a hole in each card near the top and ran the twine through and tied for the hanger|
|Here they are on my "new' year round tree hanging out with my prim snowmen( all handmade by talented friends) , I plan to make a few lil hearts to hang on here as well at some point , health permitting|
|TADA! My finished Valentines Blocks|
|This was the paper project I made while laying in bed , I took 12x12 scrapbook paper cut it into one inch wide strips, folded in half and bent to heart shape , stapled to secure ...makes a cute heart paper chain garland|
