Fast Forward

Keep fast forwarding til you come to July 23, 2012! The older I am, the faster time flies! Or is it that I am so slow, it takes me forever to get things done?

I am going to make an extra big effort to keep up with this blog, even if I am the only one reading it!

I have spent a lot of my time babysitting. I have the little boy three afternoons a week and I picked up 6 families, for who I do date night sitting. With that many families, I am booked just about every weekend. Truthfully, it takes a toll on my health and I don't know how much longer I will be doing it.

For too many months, I was in more and more pain. It got to the point, pain would awaken me and I would be in tears. I could hardly get out of bed. I would hobble to the bathroom, barely standing. I am happy to say, that pain was improved by the purchase of a new bed. Not that I could afford one, but my loving twin sister bought it for me, when she heard what I was going through. I had no idea a crummy bed could cause that much pain. And a big thanks to my physician's assistant, who recommended Overstock.com! This past year, I was diagnosed with osteopourosis. With all my back and neck problems, it didn't come as a shock, though, seeing the x-rays was a bit shocking. Looked like fine lace! Chronic pain tires one out and it takes everything in me to accomplish the things I do, but the idea of being in bed most of the time?? I just couldn't deal with that! I was bedridden for 3 years and there is no way I am going to be in that position, again! Not willingly and not quietly! So, my stubbornness has, finally, come in handy! Live, Love and Laugh!
