Good Morning

I feel like this lady this morning. OUCH!!!!!!!! Talk about hurting yikes. I think every bone, joint and muscle hurts in my body. I took 2 Tylenol Arthritis last night and fell into my bed. I think I was asleep before my head hit the pillow. Jim woke me up at 7am, to get ready and take him to work. It was raining and I needed the van, so I didn't want him walking in the rain. I dropped him off at work, and Rebecca and I went grocery shopping. I didn't go last week because we were going away.

The weekend was wonderful, but I am so happy to be home. My bed felt so good last night, and my own pillows too. Rebecca was so tired she went right to sleep. Jim was worn out from all the driving he did. I drove back to the motel from the party. When he has been drinking, I do the driving. Some of those back roads have no lights, and are so curved it is dangerous to drive on them at night. I did 15mph until I got to the highway. Mike lives in the mountains of Pittsburgh. He said when there is ice and snow, your indoors until it melts unless you have a snow mobile and can get around.

This morning I have a new JLand visitor to my journal. Her name is Mico, and she is from Japan. She made her first entry today. Would you all mind going over and welcoming her to JLand?

I realized I had no pictures of me at the party. I guess it's because I was taking all the pictures, lol. Rebecca wore a beautiful hand carved necklace with blue birds to the party, but she wanted to change out of her dress and necklace into shorts. She had so much fun playing with all the kids. I was complimented so many times on how well behaved she was, lmao, if they only knew the real Rebecca. Just kidding, she is actually a good girl, but sometimes she can throw a fuss. She I think got car sick, because they grated a huge section of the Pennsylvania turnpike and it was so bumpy. She drank apple juice and it just didn't settle right with all the bumping of the road. She was so upset and was crying saying, I'm sorry Mommy. Awwww I feltso bad for her. I told her it was ok, and not her fault. Jim said good thinking on the paper towels, cleaner and trashbag. I got Rebecca and the car all cleaned up and we were on our way again. Joe will be home at any time now. He's still in alot of pain with the severly infected bladder. His boss gave him the week off with pay, so he will be doing alot of resting over the week. I'm gonna fix a pot of homemade chicken soup for him.

We're expecting thunderstorms over the next 24 hours. I don't know how much I'll be able to get done on the computer. I have 152 alerts to read. If I don't comment right away, I will get to you soon, I promise. I am going to start from the bottom and go up. I read a few last night, but I was so tired then we were having a storm, so I just went to bed. Right now as I am sitting here I have shooting pains going up from my ankles into my thighs, and my arms and hands are throbbing. I guess it's Tylenol time again. Well, take care everyone, and thank you so much for the warm welcome back. I missed you all so much.

Love you all.......................................

    Cindy...I hope you get to feeling better now that you're back at home now. :o)

  16. Poor little Rebecca...Thank goodness you thought to take the paper towels and such! I take that arthritis strength tylenol too.helps pretty good.
    love ya,

  17. Good thinking on the paper towels.  I used to get car sick when I was a child but we lived on those twisty turny roads too in Eastern KY and the weather was just as bad in the winter.  You just stayed there until spring.  I owe you two letters and SUGAR a huge thank you.  I have those tags you sent on our refrigerator.  The card is a keepsake.  So precious to us.


  18. I hope you feel better today. You'll be good as new in a few days. Gotta recover now.  Rest up and don't do anything you don't have to!
    Love you,
    Pam xoxoxox
