It's Monday and I don't know where the time has gone since I last posted. We did have a couple of guests from Monday until Friday morning. Becky, who is GrandmaBeckyL on my sidebar and her husband Phil came to stay with us. They live south of Portland, OR and Becky and I have gotten together with other bloggers, Teresa, Gracie and Taci before for lunch when I made the trek to Portland. Our husbands all also had dinner with us one evening when we were visiting. I think they had a good time, although the weather was cool and rainy most of the week. Of course after they left it turned glorious outside. Sunshine and 80F. Isn't that the way it happens?
Dennis took a day off of work and we took them out to the lake for a few hours. Here Phil and Becky are relaxing in the camper while it rained outside. Or as Phil said, they're from Portland, they call it "heavy air!"
My back did pretty well while Phil and Becky were here, and although I had several doctor appointments, they had plans of things that they wanted to go see so it all worked out. Only on Thursday evening did the back spasms start and I think I had just done too much that day.
Maybe it was a blessing in disguise though, because I saw the chiropractor the next morning and he was able to actually feel the knots in my back for the first time. He did a "twisty" thing to my back that he's never done before and do you know what? It's been better. Not great, but much, much better. I have hope finally. He thinks the scapula is pressing on a nerve in my mid back. Oh, I hope we can get this figured out. He gave me a few exercises to do since he'll be out of town all of this week. Believe me, I'm faithfully doing them! I actually worked in the yard for awhile this morning trimming bushes. Then did some grocery shopping...and I'm still upright! I will take it easy the rest of the day though.
Look at this precious little girl. This is a sweater I made her a while ago and a dress we sent her a few weeks ago. Look how short those sleeves are! She's growinng so fast.
We talked to all three of the kids yesterday and that made my Mother's Day wonderful. It would have been better to actually be with them, but hearing voices is pretty good too. Jamie told us that our granddaughter Kyleigh won a citizenship award for her grade at school. She also won it for the entire school! This is the second year in a row that she's won it for the entire school. She is 13 and pretty special. She cares about everyone is is very active in anti-bullying projects, etc.
I had planned to stay at the lake until tomorrow, but some unexpected things came up so we came home last night. The hope is to go back out tomorrow night and stay until Thursday morning when I have an acupuncture appointment and we have Bible study in the evening. I love the weekdays at the trailer, especially at this time of year when it's so quiet up there. Once school is out, it's pure craziness!
I hope you all had a lovely weekend. I've been enjoying reading blogs and trying to keep up with everyone.
