pain in the back

Friday Morning, I woke up to the heat of the day but I could not move. I actually felt paralyzed. My legs would not moved and it hurt to try to sit up. Todd help me get into a sitting position and then I got up using todd and the wall for support. I could not move. My legs supported me fine I just could not get them to move. I laid back down on the bed while Todd got the Motrin. This could not be happening today I had a lot of stuff to get done and laying in bed was not part of the plan.

I took the Motrin and after 40 minutes and with todd massaging my back I was able to move. I did my back stretches to get from relief from the tightness and the pain. Eventually I was able to walk.

Proceeded to get the different things done with no problem at all and actually would have forgotten the pain completely if Todd had not kept calling, texting and asking are you ok?

Felicia and Floyd arrive and sleeping arrange were set up for them as well as making sure Floyd was able to have his friend russell come by tomorrow to get him so he would not be stuck in the house all day saturday. Felicia went to her mother's house and help her as much as her mother would allow. She had recently taken ill and she was the reason for the trip into town.

All the things for the anniversary party were in place and tomorrow was the big day.

Saturday morning Wake up to the same pain but I was able to move around. So I got up and made sure I had everything I needed for the party. Felicia with to her mom's house and Floyd and Russell were out and about.

The party was a success. Char and Lee are very suprised and very happy. I should have some pictures next week. ( I have to get a camera ) They party was winding down and just then is when the pain hit again. I just stood next to a wall with my back press against it and waited until we finally made our way home.

Felicia and Floyd were asleep which explains why they decided not to come to the party. Even though they were not on the guest list I extended the invite to them because I felt like a terrible hostess to them. I really did not entertain them at all and I realize that is not the reason they came but I still felt like I should have done something for them. However they did enjoy the food I brought home for them.

Right now it is 2:34 in the moring and I am afraid to go to sleep because I may wake up in pain again.

But because of the heat my legs are starting to swell. so I have to lay down to so they can feel better.

I never do well in the heat.

I need Therapy

It's important to take time for yourself and I am one for telling others to do that for themselves but often i do not do this for myself.   I find that I am surrounded by people who need me to do things for them.  Nothing major things that they can do themselves but it is easier to get someone else to do it and i am that someone else.  Gail do this, gail do that.  Good grief!
There are times when I feel like I am just living my life.   Just making it  day after day, one day blends into the next one.  Don't really see accomplishments, advancements, forward movements. As a result i an feel a bit lost and out of sorts.  I feel the need for therapy. I have a bujo and in it i have schedule and routine for everyone and thing with the exception of me.  I discovered this when i took a moment to review the schedules and routines to figure out  why i was not getting any sewing projects completed, no practice time for watercolors and the crocheting and needlework was sitting in a  corner.…

Life in a Scheduling Room

It has been some time since I felt it necessary to say anything about my job.  However this is something that i need to address at this time.  My work associates range in ages and this diversity helps our department funtion in an ackward yet somewhat effective way.  One coworker who is very verbal about everything that goes wrong.  You know when she is not well because she is quiet and there are times when she is very focus on what she is doing and if that concentration is broken so is her silence.  For the most part this does not bother me except when she takes me out of my zone and then my work rhythm is interrupted.   I am sure i am guilty of doing the same to her i think everyone does.  Then there is next coworker a beautiful young lady that gives the impression of being younger than she actually is and so I have a tendency to feel like  need  to protect her.  That is something I had to stop doing it was not needed and i hope I did not offend her.  Her method working is not as pr…

Beyond Mesaure

My mother taught me to sew my clothes because I was bigger then the average girl.  Please note the word I used was bigger not taller.  This is what I heard from family and friends " wow you are getting big"  At the age of 11 or 12  big means fat not tall.  
When looking at picture of myself at that young age when I was getting bigger it turns out I was quite slim. My Uncle called my lean bean, because I was long and lankey. He was the only one who go the measurment correct and described me in a way that I preferred to big. 
Before going into High School I stood 5 feet 8 inches tall and when I graduated high schooL I grew another .75 inches taller.  I tell people I am 5 foot 9 inches tall.  I love being tall  I am not a fan of being big. 
My sister stands 5 foot4 inches tall and she remembers as she was growing being told she was big.  I guess my family does not use pharses like " my how you have grown" and instead use phrases such as  "Wow you are getting big!…
