Everyday small choices lead to everyday small victories!

At 48.5, I'm determined to get my health back. I've struggled with injuries and physical limitations, but seeing age 50 on the not-so-distant horizon only shores up my resolve!

I have 2 grown kids (yep, I'm an empty nester) and a perfect grandson who was born 12/27/2013! I'm a bridge inspector and office administrator. I'm a cradle Catholic and a knitter. I have been in a relationship with my very significant other for a dozen years.

Personal Information:
I'm from a very small Texas town. I've lived in the big city - and I love this way of life. It has its disadvantages, but they are FAR outweighed by its advantages.

I have a daughter in college, studying biology (forensic medicine), and a son who's a musician in Lubbock, Tx.

Other Information:
I'm a voracious reader. I always have one book in progress on my Kindle or in paper form, AND one in progress in audio form. I listen to books as I drive and as I get ready for work in the morning.
I'm a somewhat new knitter. I like to make scarves because they're mindless and satisfying, but I rarely wear them myself.

Hey, I wanted to thank you for the pillow idea. I got a new pillow for under my head and I've been sleeping with the old ones under my legs, and I think it's really helping! I haven't rolled over in the middle of the night, and my shoulder doesn't hurt as bad when I get up in the morning. Going to stick with it and see how it goes!

May you always have...
Walls for the winds
A roof for the rain
Tea beside the fire
Laughter to cheer you
Those you love near you
And all your heart might desire.

Thanks so much for your comment on my blog and my photos!

I think I'm definitely going to try sleeping with pillows under my knees. I have no padding on my butt anymore, and so the pressure on my tailbone makes it uncomfortable to sleep, but I think it would be better if I changed the angle a little, like you suggest. I'm also terrible about buying new pillows, and I know I need some for under my head.
