Sorry to start on a downer, I have been practising being thankful and being more positive.
Well I am thankful that I an walk cos it sometimes helps the pain. I am thankful that we are at the trailer and my walk this morning was before the rain started, and was a nice walk. We saw 4 bunnies 2 of them twice lol Allie loved it and just watches them, but I have to be ready for when she decides to catch up lol I am thankful that I slept from 1 till 4 without pain. I am thankful that I can write a letter to my dr to take in, in case she won't get me an apointment before 3 months from now. I have to let him know about this stuff. My neck not moving, my noticeable decrease in muscle tone in arms, my elbow and its pain, my back now on right side butt too, and my back not going to the floor and unable to get in even the smallest of bridge positions last night which usually are my saving grace. BUT oh well, I am alive, able to walk, move, sit ( well sit then get up and move sit and get up lol) eat - still to well lol. and laugh.
So today we are going back home. Hubby will have to do the majority of the loading car ect. I am hoping I can make it partway home where we usually stop but if not we will stop 2xs. Be good to get home and some laundry done, sleep in my bit firmer bed, and such but do love the nature and quiet out here.
Tomorrow is dd birthday, she was due on Hubbys but I was induced a week later. She will be 33, how time flies. I rememeber her as a baby, and then as the most beautiful blond little girl. Total tom boy and funny now she is scared of bugs and spiders big time. lol She lived in the woods when she was young. Not sure what we will do tomorrow, depends on my body, what she is doing and our $. But will find something to do with her.
Yesterday I started my motivational for me, journal scrapbook and once I got started got 4 pages done. I find them a tad too scrapbooky to be an art journal but I like them and it is for me. lolI I also am going to do a separate one for the campground and what we do and such. I just have to remember to bring the phone - camera on our walks. Would have been good pics of the bunnies. but better if there are the 2 of us as one can hang onto her and other take pics. I will start taking her, then going back without her for a nice quiet solitary non pulling walk.
Okay going to put on some tea, and lay some things out on the couch to take home.
cya when we get home perhaps.
My wish for you all, is a pain free, happy, healthy day with some great food, movement ( rather than exercise think of movement as what you like, walk, bike, swim) and love.
Well going to go sort a bit of stuff while I stand up for a bit more. Have piles to take home to re fill ( if food) to wash , to use at home cos can't buy 2 of evrything. I

So far even though it is only 8:30 it is a better day. My pain yesterday was wicked, my elbow and back were so bad, and then mid morning my neck wouldn't turn to the left, like maybe 3 inches if that, which gave me a headachea t the base of my head. It turned extremely hot 93 F around 30 C. which was a huge change so thinking some of the pain was that. I was so hot and my face was wet my hair damp, thought I won't complain we have been waiting for nice weather but could have come gradually.
So slept well last night, woke wih minimal pain and went for our walk, we saw bunnies. then back and neck is tighening up again so will take magic bag and heat it up. My elbow will have to go to dr for sure it is so bad and not getting better with hubby taking allie's leash when we walk.
Today not sure what all we will do, not a lot lol which will be good. also not sure what the weather is for today so will have to see.
Hope you all have a good sunday and a great week ahead.

I find it impossible to think that 4years have passed. I remember coming here and saying my mum died today. Some days it seems like yesterday, some seems like forever. I miss her so much, to call and ask, or tell or share. I often think how she would have loved Lisa's wedding, and holding Thomas and Eva who she never met. Oh well that is life, she is no longer in pain and we will go on.
Today we are going to go to the farmers market and then to get a few things we need for here. I will have a good day and yea a few sad moments but it is about remembering and then living in the now. That is what she would want anyway. She didnt even understand why people would " hang" around people that were dying she thought that was nuts and morbid. Sorry mum but you didnt die alone, not when I was around thats for sure. Many things I would have done differently but hindsight doesnt help in this issue so carry on.
Okay yesterday was an awesome day. First hot day yet, and had tank top and shorts on, so had to be hot. Today is supposed to be occasional thundershowers. I am hoping not till we get home as don't want allie spooked, she has never heard thunder.
Well time to get a cup of tea. and find a light breakfast as hubby won't want to eat before we go but I need to.
Had a bad night again from 4 am on. My back gets too sore laying down that long and had charley horses a lot last night, not wicked but wake me up and think dont screach. lol
I am trying to figure what is causing this past 2 wks or so of increased pain and can only pinpoint 2 things......... one is the weather being so flucuating and that I got worse as summer approached for the past 3 years. The other is I am having more sugar than naturopath suggested. I am still not having added sugar, but having sparkling water and adding juice ( well okay for 1 or 2 times day but that is becoming more often), Also some of the stuff I have made has honey and that is sugar even though I can have a bit.
So starting today for a week I am cutting all sugar out again just to see. Back to being as dliigent as I was for the first 3 wks. Water and green tea only and none of the baking which is fine as didnt bring much here. I go see her in a week which will give me some basis to tell her stuff. cos I don't know what else, other than eliminating more which is fine if she thinks it will help, but really I had a few good weeks and days and ate all the reg foods. so....... not sure but worth a try.
Off to turn on water heater, want to shower and wash hair before we go and to get some breaky.
HUGS and hey everyone that can hug or call your mum just say hi. IF you don't normally just say Cindy says to say hi cos she misses her mum and wishes she could just say hi.

Well after a terrible pain night Tues and some pain wed. I am back to my reg. level of pain. NO idea what did it, but only can think weather again, it went from rain to HOT to rain again. So yesterday it was in the 20s, ( C ) like around 73 and the day before we had frost and about mabye 50 F. So not sure if that was it or not. Last night it rained and supposed to today but be 19 again. The rest of the week is to be warm/hot and nice. So will see how my pain reacts.
Hubby had a great birthday, we went to the trailer, and then dropped off allie and put some stuff away, Went to his sister who had a small cake for him and a card, then got a strange text from son in law. they were at the trailer as a suprise LOL Anyway..... we finished our tea and went back and they stayed for supper and we had a great time.
Today we have to go to walmart as we were going to go on way home last eve, but had to get right back. Just a short pop in to get a whipper snipper to do the small lawn here, and perhaps a chair or two. Then stop at grocery store as I forgot the pb. OMG Heaven forbid!!
Lol yea I have a bit of all natural pb on my gf homemade english muffin but it is ALLIE she gets it in her kong every am,and I forgot thekong too. NOt buying a new one but will give her some in her bowl. Took her a bit today after breakfast to stop sitting at the fridge looking at me. lol
Well off to get some breakfast, hot cereal as it is none too warm yet, put the furnace on in trailer againt his am, but we didnt need it last night.
Okay all have a great day, me I plan to read, copy some recipes, walk with allie and DH!! , go to store, do some more stretches. Oh a slower and lazy day,just being here and enjoying it, no matter what pain level I have.

Good morning sparkers. I am so so happy to be up and even after being only up 45 misn and walking a shorter walk, I am feeling 75% better than when laying in bed. I am not sure what has happened to make my pain so super bad again, but last night was pure hell. I went to bed and hubby came up to change and I asked can you heat the magic bag for my hands, sure, I leaned a tad to turn off the bedside table light and OMG my back. Even typing this much my L thumb is throbbing so be back in min. lol
This is when I wonder if it is more than osteoarthritis, where I can be really doing pretty well, to back to today would be square 2or 3 only not back to start cos my back is not too bad when sitting really straight. This is more pain in joints....OH WELL that was my medical complaint of the day, now on with my day.
I must say I am very proud that I have gotten past a lot of my pain, before I know you allmust have gotten tired of a full blog of pain and tired and sore. Now yea I still want to lament lol but then get on with it.
We are going to the trailer and going to have a good time. Going mid morning, droppign stuff and allie off there. then going to sil for lunch, she is gettign him a small cake which she will share. I said thought they said no gluten when you hyave the shingles, oh will cheat. I said okay cos can bring you a muffin cos I am not cheating. I have to say not eating as well, cos less salads and such but no gluten a tad more honey cos of eating muffins but told her my pain even worse isn't worth a pc of cake and hubby would say no anyway, not that I have to listen to him, but he is trying to help so much. ( In that respect but still not around house, don't think that will change )
So getting off here, going to make him a card, check if the urethane on his gift is dry... hope so but if not will tell him close your eyes an d never mind putting out your hand, I will hold this LOL
Hope you all have a great day HUGS and I am so happy I am doing better today, GOING TO BE A GREAT DAY !!!!
