Shortest Blog this year. Feels strange just writing it.

Sunday, February 10, 2013

Today the plow woke me up way too early, I really wanted to sleep.

I tried to go back but sleep never came.

Went downstairs and discovered just how stiff my arms and back had become.

I did some sparking but had to go sit with a heated rice bag.

We were supposed to go to a concert but I was aching and the seats are too low.

DH and I spent the afternoon watching Mansfield Park he was icing his leg and I was heating my back--sorry day but we just chilled.

Tonight was Downton Abbey (NO -W- in there please)

less than 2,000 steps A new week will help with that .

HIGHLIGHT OF OUR DAY !!!!! DH walked downstairs and back upstairs I stayed very close by and was anxious. He said it was a piece of cake.

Sorry blog but we just took care of us both today.

    Good to hear of Fred's progress. Sorry you are achy, all that work sure left you with some ramifictions. Sorry you missed your concert, but glad you stayed home and took care of each other.

  The both of You needed a Day of Rest and Relaxation with Together time. Sorry that You ache all over along with your back bothering you. You over did it saturday shoveling and using the snow blower. I know it couldn't be help. But take it easy for the next few days if you can. Hooray for DH going down and up the stairs. Be careful and don't overdue it please. Get plenty of rest and sleep. Hope tomorrow will be better for you Pat. God Blessings to Everyone. Have a Super Nice Day. Take Care. Hugs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Pat, I am so amazed at DH's progress but he also has a great "nurse" looking after him. Sorry you were aching today but I'd prefer the heat to having to sit with ice. lol

Despite the aches, sounds like the two of you had a good day. Hope you don't have any more shoveling to do. Please take care.

hugs...Mary Anne

    I'm a recent fan of Downton Abbey--I agree, it's an addictive show! Sometimes I have trouble understanding the English accents, especially from the cast that plays the service staff. But the story lines are mesmerizing...will be sorry to see the show end.

    Sometimes you just need some "you" time. That can be the best medicine. It is good that you aren't always on the go. Your body needs a vacation too.

Hope that the both of you got a lot of rest. I will continue to say prayers for the both of you.

Best wishes to you both.

    To bad about the extra sleep.....but good that the snow plow got to your street. Shoveling and snow machine, we often use more muscles than we think. May your gentle exercise and heat applications ease the soreness in those muscles. The day of rest will do you wonders for you.

We are on the edge of numerous storms and it is snowing with ice crystal's. Our back door has a 2.5 foot drift against it already. Hope the yard plow gets here early, DH has therapy at 10:45 am. The guys do a great job.

Tomorrw is the start of a new week........let's make it a good one. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
