Happy week-end gang. Vivienne, our part of the country is supposed to have a warm up coming for us to rejoice over. Hallelujah!! I am so sorry you have fallen and hurt your back again. That is something I live in dread fear of.

Went to visit a friend in a NH yesterday. Her kids are coming to start disposing of her belongings today. She asked if my daughter was interested in her sofa and love seat, so we are going over to her apartment later to look at them. She seems to be settling in nicely at the NH for which I am so grateful as she was just not able to take care of herself any more and landed in the hospital nearly dead once. She has a nice little room and has been able to bring her favorite belongings to make it seem like home. I hope that the dispersal of her goods goes smoothly because there is one daughter who tends to be a trouble maker and she really doesn't need to have them fighting over her belongings at this stage.

Hope you all have a great week-end.

Mary

Lots of back problems out there, I also have a bad back. Mine was manageable most of the time but I have fallen twice this winter which had really made if worse.
I had hoped losing weight would help but it does not seem to have made any difference.
Oh well will just keep on keeping on.
Those that a getting out in their gardens are so lucky, cannot wait to do so.
Have a great weekend all.

Did yard work this morning, cleaned up and went to a Ladies Fellowship that we had with the interim/missionary/pastor's wife. Had a great time.

Still not sitting at the computer very long which means I have not checked my Friends Feed for days. Not sure how far back it goes...

Mary, your comment about our backs I think is right on. I injured my back originally when I was about five years old and have had problems off and on since. Weight has not helped either.

What a bunch we are. Back problems all over the place. I wonder if it has anything to do with the general age group we are in. I think the spine takes an awful lot of abuse in the average lifetime. Hopefully we will all improve as spring comes. rumor has it we are to have temps in the 40's next week. I am sure it will be a brief interlude, but if even part of the snow disappears it will be a blessing.

Baking cupcakes this morning to take to a church fish fry tonight. I thought I would use pink frosting and candy hearts to decorate for the season.

Not much else going on. Still cold toay.

Hang in there all, Spring is coming.

Talk about back problems. I am having trouble staying on the computer because sitting very long hurts. I did something a few days ago and my right hip is giving me fits. My chiropractor says it the sa.... (can't spell it) and has adjusted twice since the beginning of the week. Real bummer. Not sure if it were cold with this problem.

Take care all,

Back problems can really be debillitating, and it seems once they start they just keep getting worse. I did really well for several years, but now I have developed severe arthritis, scoliosis and spinal stenosis at the site of the previous surgeries and above. I am probably looking at a three or four level fusion to correct all the problems, but am not sure I can live with the pain much longer. I had total relief for three weeks after the second set of injections and got a little taste of what a pain free life was like. Now I want more. I am to report to my Dr. in two weeks to see how I am doing after this last round of injections, but I think this is the max amount they will try, and it's not a very pleasant process to only get a couple weeks of relief. If surgery is the only solution, and it looks like it is at this point, I would really like to just get to it and get it done and hope it makes my life better. I really have sympathy for anyone with back problems. I am almost 69 by the way.

I am so fortunate to have my sister come and do my cleaning for me. When she isn't able to come her daughter does.
Back problems can be so painful. I've already gone to ER with such severe spasms. All they could do was load me up with pain killers and muscle relaxants. But I know, no fun.



If there's a will, there's a way and I'll find that way.

Good. My back issues go back to high school and since I am now 67 that has been a long time. However, I have only avoided the vacuum for the last 15 to 20 years. I do sweep and mop the floors but my back complains about it.

My back problems go back about 25 years with two previous surgeries and I have been avoiding the vacuum all of those years. I do have a lady who comes and does my floors and bathroom for me every two weeks and she is a gem. Don't know what I'd do without her.

Mary, if you are having back issues, please avoid using the vacuumn. I have back problems and the doctor told my husband to never allow me to use the vacuum as it is the worst thing for the back.

We are freezing our tusches again this morning in Wisconsin. I can hardly wait for that warm up they are talking about. I took my elderly friends to coffee this morning, and now I have to do some housework. I have been doing way too much running around and not enough home maintenance.

Back is holding up pretty good so far. I had a little achiness yesterday but very minor. We'll see how it goes if I actually do some housework. Nothing very excitiing on my agenda though., Hope you are all warm and dry.

Boy, looks like we have alot of Packer fans on this team. I was rooting for them, even though I'm a lifelong Vikings Fan!!!!! (By the way, you can have Brett back LOL) Freezing in MN this morning was -18 brrrrrr!!! I'm attempting to get going with this SP thing as I have been indulging in too much of my OLD lifestyle. Good luck to us all-seems the older I get the harder it is to lose weight

Mary, my family was at Lambeau welcoming the Packers home. Even 3 year old Alyssa enjoyed it. Biggest problem was the parking. But they really enjoyed it.
Can't wait for the warmer temperatures they are forecasting for the weekend.
Having a good SP day so far. Hope everyone else has a great day.

OK one more time. I had this typed, then hit the wrong button and lost it. I hate it when that happens. I do have a heated vibrating chair pad that works really well for loosening up the back and relaxing it, but Monday night nothing worked. Today I am feeling pretty good again so hopefully the injection has done something at least temporarily.

We are in the deep freeze again in Wisconsin this morning but it didn't stop 56,000 people from going out to the celebration at Lambeau field for our victorious Packers last night. We are looking forward to a big warm up in a few days and then it will probably get horribly sloppy with all the snow on the ground, but I think we are ready for some warm.

Nothing much on my agenda today except maybe to help my son with some car shopping. Hope you all have a good day.

Glad to hear that things are improving. I have back problems so understand what you are going through.
Have you tried that sausage shaped thing that heats in the micro, I take it to bed with me at night and wrap around my back.
May things continue to improve.

The injection process was not a pleasant one. This radiologist was very stingy with the local anesthetic and he hit the nerve on the second one that sent a shot of pain right down to my toes. The result was that last night was just miserable, but I seem to be doing much better today. I went to a liturgical music workshop with our parish priest and choir director this morning and had to do some walking and stair climbing and so far have had no pain so the cortisone must be doing it's thing. Now if it can only last a while.

Thanks for all your encouraging wishes. Hopefully I will be able to sleep better tonight because between partying Sunday night and pain last night I'm building up a little bit of a deficit.

Deep freeze again tonight in Wisconsin. Hope it's warmer where most of you are.

MAREBEAR42, hope those shots work.

I went to bed early, woke up around midnight and did not get back to sleep until after 2:00. Gotta stop doing that. It has happened several times lately.

Be well everyone.

I am just a wee bit weary around the edges. I went to a Superbowl party last night and a good time was had by all of us Packer Fans!!. What a great game. After the game we all stayed at my friends house and watched Glee. It was way past my bedtime when I got home and then I didn't sleep very well, I think because I was afraid of oversleeping.

I got my third round of injections in my back this morning and that wasn't a very pleasant experience. He hit the nerve on the one side and the pain shot down my leg to my toes and didn't let up for several minutes. That does indicate that he hit exactly the right spot though so I guess I can live with it. Now to see if I have any results.

I think I am going to resort to a little nap this afternoon before I go pick up my kids. Hope you all have a great day and a great week.

I am sore. I over did a project this morning and now my arms and chest muscles hurt. Also my fingers feel like they have blisters which they don't.

I plan to do a little of the same tomorrow to hopefully strengthen what I have already started.

Take care all,

Thanks for the well-wishes for ddil. As it turns out, she didn't roll the van, she spun around several times and then hit the concrete barrier in the middle of the road. She ended up crosswise of the traffic lane on a blind curve with a semi headed her direction and was scared out of her wits. The semi saw her in time to stop and put on it's flashers and a passer by also stopped and helped her out of the car and called 911. They took her to the hospital by ambulance and she was checked out thoroughly. She was here this morning and seemed to be doing OK. Later in the day I took her to get her belongings out of her van at the place where it was towed and while we were eating lunch together, I got a call from my other son saying he had lost his job. They just completely shut down the plant where he was employed and everyone was out of a job. Not a great day for this family. Please keep my kids in your prayers.

On a brighter note, it is actually almost seasonable in WI today and tomorrow so we are out of the deep-freeze for a couple days.

Have a good day all.

Sorry to hear of your DIL's mishap this morning, Mary. I hope she gets that neck checked out as it could well be whiplash. She will probably find more bumps, bruises, aches, and pains in the next few days. How sad that she also got socked with such a big fine for something that was beyond her control. It's not like she rolled the van on purpose.

Hope everyone is staying safe and warm. Have a wonderful weekend if possible.

Mary, give your daughter-in-law a hug from us! I know it probably needs to be a verbal on because of her aches. So glad her injuries are not serious. I do hope she was checked by a doctor so you know there is nothing internal. So glad she was wearing that seat belt.

Windows are open here and woke up to the smell of smoke. I got up and checked around thinking a neighbor was burning something but could not see. Not sure where it came from but I have not smelled it after I was up. It was 5:00 a.m. so still dark.

Going to an I.R.A. meeting today so would have been awake before 6:00 to get ready.

Stay safe everyone.

After surviving a three hour drive home from work in the blizzard on Wednesday night my poor little Philippino daughter-in-law who has done just a marvelous job of adjusting to winter in Wisconsin hit a patch of ice and rolled her van on the way to work this morning. It sounds like the van might be totalled, she is not hurt except for a sore neck and chest from the seatbelt but the police gave her a $2300.00 ticket because "it's their policy whenever there is a crash" even though it was caused by weather conditions and really not her fault. She is pretty depressed right now. Add to that a towing bill and what this will probably do to her insurance rates and I think she has a right to be depressed.

Navigation is pretty difficult here in our little town. The streets are very narrow in some spots and it is almost impossible to see around corners until you are half out in the road. The city crew has been working day and night but they are a small crew and they have to sleep too. I will put the pictures I took out my kitchen and dining room windown onto my deck on my spark page. I have a drift that almost reaches the roof of the garage.

I know several of you are also from this area and having the same experiences we are. I hope at least a portion of my spark buddies are somewhere warm and dry. This stuff isn't fit for man nor beast.

Now that I have vented, I will wish you all a great day and a great week-end,

Good morning from chilly, but sunny, PA. the temperature here this morning is 15 degrees. Brrrrrrrrr! We welcome the sun as tonight will bring us another few inches of snow and the extended forecast calls for a possibility of snow again on Monday and a bigger storm system moving in for Thursday. Spring where are you?!!!!!

Hope everyone is safe, warm and dry. The weather stateside sounds awful with the wind, snow, ice and rain. In Queensland it is wet, wet and flooding. If you want to see pictures and video's google cyclone Yasi and all sorts of information will come up.

It has been a good day here with lots of sunshine and some rain. Very tropical.

We have gotten over 17 inches of snow here in Wis. Today it is very windy so there will be some drifting. I am so fortunate I can stay in. Tomorrow it's suppose to be a bit warmer and hubby will take me into town to do some errands. Suppose to be 28 out, better than this mornings -6. Stay warm and safe everyone.

Good morning. Glad I found the new thread. I am in the same genereal area as Vivienne so most of what she has said in the last 24 hours applies to me too. Yesterday I was out and about as the kids had school but it started two hours late and they got out an hour early so I was delivering and picking up almost in succession. In between I went out to lunch with three friends, one of whom had been plowing snow since 2:30 AM. This was all before the main portion of the storm started. My daughter stayed in Madison last night so she could get to her office this morning, but my daughter-in-law drove home and it took her hours to get 45 miles. I haven't talked to her this morning as I assume she is sleeping in. My son is outside starting to move snow, my front door is drifted shut and the drift that always forms on my deck almost reaches the roof. I will have to take some pictures a little later.

Hope you are all staying warm and dry. My heart goes out to the people in Australia, those homeless in our own country who are trying to survive this terrible winter and the people caught in the riots in Egypt. So much trouble and sadness in this world. I try to keep all in my prayers and the list is getting long.

We had sleet and freezing rain all night and everything here is encased in thick ice. It is so beautiful to look at, as if God decorated everything in jewels, but there is danger of many power outages.

Good morning all: Wind howling like a Banshee woke me this morning, checking by the patio light it looks like we got 8-10 inches over night. Will be interesting to see once the sun is up, looks like we have major drifts outside the fencing,
If anyone has news on the cyclone in Australia I would love to hear, tried calling my sister last night and could not get through she lives in a Spearwood WA.
Stay safe & warm everyone.

While North America is under sever winter weather tropical Australia is going to be hit again. This time a cyclone/typhoon/hurricane is bearing down on Cairns. It is a category 5 which means bad.

Skies are nice here today.

I'm glad you are staying home, Vivienne. We woke up to about 2 inches topped with a light coating of ice which has been building up ever since. Now we are to get another 4 inches of snow followed by another freezing rain. We were told to expect lots of power outages due to the ice accumulation. Like you, I am staying inside where it is safe and warm.

Glad you are safe. That is a lot of snow in less than 24 hours!

We are still having a lot of rain off and on. I have cracks in the cement ceiling and so there are leaks. grrrrr Will have to wait until things dry out to get them fixed.

Good Morning all: We got 5 inches over night and it is still coming down, predicting another 13 before it ends tomorrow. The winds are supposed to get high later today creating blizzard conditions. I was trying to decide if I should go in to the office and just heard a tanker truck has jack knifed and block my highway, so my questions has been answered by a higher power, staying home.Be safe everyone.
