Feeling Stronger Every Day...

Sunday, February 24, 2013

OK, the tune is in my head, but I'm not sure of the words.... Is it feeling or getting stronger every day? Those of you who are near my age can help. I think it is a Chicago song. Not from the play or movie, but from the 70s group! Whatever, the truth is I am feeling stronger every day and possibly getting stronger every day too!

The pain is still here in my shoulder, but not as um, severe works, but that is not what I mean.... Not as vibrant? Shocking? Maybe just sharp. The pain has been all of the above. It is duller, but still here. A person who read my lemon blog said it usually takes a few days for steroid shots to do their jobs, so we'll see. I was able to do my upper body bootcamp on Friday with no problem. It is not while I exercise that it hurts, but after. The cortizone did make my blood sugar go crazy. But, it seems back to normal.

Yesterday afforded me a nice day with my husband. We went to the movies and saw Warm Bodies which we both found disappointing. We ate dinner together and then finally returned home to our happy dog who was home alone all day and quite upset. I'm pretty sure he stayed out back barking from 2 PM to 8:30 PM when we got home. He snuggled up on the couch next to my husband and slept all evening! He hates to be alone and is aware of days and knew we should be at the house on Saturdays! When we went to bed he snuggled up on me and we slept soundly.

I didn't have many lemons thrown at me yesterday. I only cried once and it was just a few tears. I did skip Curves which I regret, but I was really tired. I know they say our bodies wouldn't make us so tired if we didn't need the rest, but my body lies! I just like to sleep and always have! My brother and sister used to get so upset to have to wake me with difficulty for Santa! I do love to sleep! Anyhow, slept in yesterday and felt good.

I learned of a fellow Spark Member's death and found that shocking and sad. On her page she said she was 50. She wrote her last blog on February 15 and evidently died on the 16th. Her son reported her death on her blog. I hope my husband will do that for me should I die. That way my many Spark Friends will know why I"m no longer squirting juice in their eyes!

Well, typing seems to be hurting my shoulder more, so I'm signing off! I do feel stronger both physically and especially emotionally. I hope I am on the road back to me!

*Bad movie, but time spent quiet with husband and no jealous dog. We held hands and made fun of the movie quietly b/t us.
*Got my mani/pedi for the cruise. Have little flip flops painted on my ring finger nails in hot pink and neon orange! Love it! Toes are a wonderful neon orange!
*Slept in and enjoyed it!
*My nephew's "hot girls" calendar came in, so I can finish up his Christmas gift! I think he has enjoyed Christmas lasting 3 months for him!
*Having my husband and my dog in my life.
*Only 5 days 'til we drive to florida and 6 'til we board the ship! WooHoo!

    I'm right there with you and Chicago! And so glad you are having a better day. Who all's going on the cruise? DH and Jack? I am so excited for you, and love that you got your nails done in prep! I guess it's time to start thinking about flashing toes again!
    I hear you - Auggie knows exactly what day of the week it is. Yesterday we were also gone for the day and he made us pay when we got home!
    Have a wonderful evening.

    Feelin' Stronger Every Day -- yes, I am still a Chicago fan!

    I do believe in you and I know you believe in me, oh yeah, oh yeah.
    And now we realize love's not all that it's supposed to be, oh yeah, oh yeah.
    And knowing that you would have wanted it this way,
    I do believe I'm feelin' stronger every day.

    I know we really tried, together we had a love inside, oh yeah, oh yeah.
    So now the time has come for both of us to live on the run. oh yeah, oh yeah.
    And knowing that you would have wanted it this way,
    I do believe I'm feelin' stronger every day.

    After what you've meant to me, ooh baby now, I can make it easily.
    I know that we both agree the best thing to happen to you
    is the best thing that happened to me.

    Feelin' stronger every day, feelin' stronger every day.
    Feelin' stronger every day (you know I'm alright now),
    feelin' stronger every day (you know I'm alright now)…

    Hope you have a wonderful time on the cruise and that your shoulder is in great shape by then
