If It isn't One Thing, It's Another

Thursday, March 07, 2013

Okay, so yesterday it was the knees and this morning it's the lower back that hurts. emoticon Getting older isn't always what it's cracked up to be, in more ways than one. Sure I may be a whole lot wiser these days but sometimes it just downright "insert word of choice" if you know what I mean.

The good news is my knees feel better today. emoticon Can't quite figure out though what I did to my back to make it hurt. I don't remember wrestling with my grandson the other day. emoticon Speaking of the little guy, we had an awesome time together on Tuesday. DH and I got in a lot of walking too during our full day which I very much needed. Hummm perhaps that is the cause. Too much exercise in one day when I haven't been as consistent as I have needed to be the last couple of months. Than again, I have been having off & on lower backaches for a while now especially in the mornings. So it could also be my bed. It's way beyond time for a new mattress and box spring. I have known this for awhile but keep putting it off to get other things done around the house. Hence, my very loooooong to-do list. All the other mattress sets in the house have been exchanged for new ones except the master. So perhaps this is a sign that it's time for me to stop procrastinating and buy a new one. emoticon

    I like to think that I am not getting any older but that just is not the case. I have aches and pains in places I didn't know I had. But I know that I have to keep going on even if it is something small.

The new bed will make a difference for your back. I had the same problem
a couple of years ago. It helped me. I hope that your backpain goes away.
Have a great weekend.

    It seems that there is a bit of a struggle for us as we get older. One pain or another. I hope that you do find something to relieve your pain. Sounds like a lot of fun with the grandson. emoticon

    Sallie we got new mattress this past summer and that was the best thing we have done in a long, long time. I didn't realize that my mattress could cause so much pain in my hips, knees, back, etc. I sure haven't got younger but those body parts sure feel better. lol

Glad ya'll had such a good time with the little guy. Have a great day.

    Getting old is not for Sissy's...that is for sure!

I, like you said, seem to have a new pain, or ache, every other day!

But growing OLD, emoticon sure beats the other option!

    Sorry to hear your back is giving you troubles! Hopefully you are able to get a new mattress soon! I'll be in the market for one, as soon as my car is paid off. One thing at a time!!! :)

    I keep trying to tell myself that I'm not getting that old, but my body aches and pains tell me otherwise. It is good to be able to keep on going though. I'm sure a new mattress would make a big difference in the back. Good luck. emoticon

    A new mattress can do wonders for the body, not to mention the psychological lift. emoticon emoticon
