Sunday Ramblings..............

Back is not good, doing Physical Therapy (PT) 4 times a week. Hoping this will pass soon, was active before this set back. Because of back, house needs cleaning, may have to hire someone to help!!

Also because of back have not had time or felt well enough to sit to get a much needed hair cut. Called Supercuts today since you can get a cut without shampoo, blow dry etc which eliminates lots of time and bending backward during hair wash. Will do again since it is very economical. Told hubby was going for a haircut and did he have any input. He said do what ever, you do want you want anyways, he is well trained after 37 years!!!!!! Got to Supercuts at 11AM, no waiting, was done by 11:20! Woohoo!!! And Michaels is right next door to Supercuts where I picked up Cotton Ease for sweater for DD. Then home to veg and knit in ac as it is extremely humid & hot here in NJ. Can take the heat but the humidity is a killer.

A very good day!!!!!

Weekly Topic # 3

Well now that Summer has OFFICIALLY begun.. what do you do to beat the heat? A nice tall glass of lemonade? Frozen Coffee? A dip in the pool? What's your favorite way to keep cool this summer as things heat up?

To beat the heat, I drink tons of water and coffee. Coffee is a vice of mine, iced or hot!!! I like to sit on porch at night when it cools a bit and read or knit.



These critters are harassing the doggie as she can only go so far on her run, should I get a longer run?

Keepin' Cool in the Summer Dishcloth Swap Weekly Topic # 2

This week's topic:
Living in Atlanta, I know Summer has truly 'arrived' when it begins to get humid. Blech. When I was a kid, I knew Summer was starting the easy way - School was out!! Share with us how you know that summer has truly 'arrived', or something that signifies the start of Summer in your world.

I know summer has arrived when there are no school buses out during my morning commute to work. In addition, the commute is heaven, traffic is a breeze!!

I know summer has arrived when we have to put on the a/c.

So work has been slow and I have been able to blog alot today. Glad work is slow since somehow I injured my back/right leg.

I talked to my nurse sister and she GOT IT RIGHT!! :) YEA, she is so smart and THANKS so much!!~! I have a slipped/herniated disc (maybe 2). Doc says I have degenerative disc disease and she noted the exact lumbar regions but I forget where, I was in the car when she called, stopped driving but did not take notes!!! The x-ray taken last Friday was sent to an orthopedic who found it!!

I have an MRI scheduled for Friday when I see ortho doctor. NEED PAIN MEDICATION NOW. My family doctor gave me 14 (just 14) vicodin to use until I get to see ortho doctor and have MRI. Guess I shouldn't go through 14 before Friday afternoon but............................

I have NEVER had back problems before so NOW I totally sympathize with anyone who has!! The pain is unbearable, I don't even get any relief when lying down.
Tough year for me (starting in Sept 07)!!!

I made a few of these for kids Ipods and digital cameras.

Mr. Baseball, for his pop-pop!!!

ROCK STARS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You have a sunny disposition and are normally one of the first to show up for the party. You don't need too much attention from the host once you get there as you are more than capable of making yourself seen and heard.
