My aching back.........

It's been a painful and boring week!  Somehow or another, I threw my back out between Friday night and Saturday morning of this past week.  I got up in the middle of the night and could hardly stand on my left leg.  My hubby even had to help me get dressed.  Naturally, my Advil bottle expired 02/09 so I had to stoop to Tylenol for the pain.  Even sitting was a trick!  Thankfully, I had the envelopes to keep my interest so I didn't think about it too much.  I suppose in a way it was okay though because the powers that be are still working on replacing our roads.  (It's only been about 2 months!)  From what I understand, the resurfacing is supposed to FINALLY happen this coming Monday, so we'll see.  Our mailboxes are about 3 blocks away, if you can believe!  See my skinny neighbor walking back home from getting his mail?  My DH takes the car!  lol


Envelopes continue to be my main focus lately.  My dear, sweet great niece is really enjoying getting so much fun mail.  Here she is with her stack of her A-Z Mystery books.  She's not quite to reading them by herself yet (being that she just started kindergarten), but her parents have read the stories to her so often, she thinks she knows them by heart.



 Here are the books I mailed to Audrey and my other sweetie this week:

The weekly a-z mystery book for Audrey

Zoo parade

Reader of the week to Audrey

And naturally, Annie in California, continues to be the receiver of my fun drawings:

49er Football player

49er fan

"The Costume Guy"

Costume #2

I did get out the sewing machine yesterday though, if you can believe????  I had to repair some holes in the mesh bag that holds our swimming pool's winter cover...........what a job!  UGH!



So, that's my news..........not much, I'm afraid!  Hope your week was better!  I do need to get back in shape!  Lady #58 and #59 await!  Until next time..............

Carol I am so sorry about your back. Mine has been out with a pinched sciatic nerve and protruding discs for a month now and I am exhausted from the pain. Physical Therapy is helping some. Prayers and Healing Energy for you dear. Your envelopes are such fun!

I hope your back is much better soon!

Luckily your envelope art does not suffer from your back pains! LOL That does not sound sympathetic at all does it. I do hope you are finally on the mend. Even a regular every day back ache doesn't feel good, so I try to imagine that times what? ten? Love the envelopes tho!
