I NEED SOME REST!!

You have probably noticed that I haven't been around much since Tuesday. I have been commenting on every one's blogs because I just can't get enough of what you great ladies have been up to! But I have been having some problems with my back (from my infamous "over packing of the suitcases" during my trip at Christmas) and so I have...well, er...been hitting the pain pills a little. Not much, being groggy all the time is not fun but neither is having what feels like a great big, giant toothache throbbing in my lower back!! So I am going to take a little rest, catch up on some reading (and I mean reading some books, no more magazines!!) and hopefully soon I will be sitting at my kitchen table, drinking a lot of coffee and tea and catching up with everyone. I'll be checking in on what everyone does for Pink Saturday & Blue Monday because I love doing those myself. So you will see me around! :-)

Have a great weekend and I hope to be back at it again, long~winded as usual, by the end of next week! :-)

xoxo

Janie

Oh dear Janie...I hope you're feeling better! I'm a bit out of sorts myself, trying to keep up with the he-men on the ski slopes (I was the only chick on the trip!). Please take good care of yourself...hot showers, warm towels and some good hot tea in that fabulous new tea cup! :-)

Much love from the shore house,
Laura

So sorry about your back pain Janie. Take it easy and get plenty of rest and hope you feel better very soon!...Christine

Oh, back pain is the worst. I will pray for you to feel a healing. Have a lovely rest. I know I am such a mother, but if you try to take capsule forms of cod liver oil it helps. It helped my mother so much with her arthritis. Well, I am not going to tell you to have some chicken soup, but I am wishing you health.

I know what you mean about facebook. I don't like it but I kept getting invites. I started it and left it for a couple years. I also have a myspace page which I hate with a passion but again I wanted to keep in touch with my high school buddies. So I decided facebook might be a good place to have our group for the reunion. I just started it a couple days ago and already have connected with about 9 classmates.

I hope that you feel better soon!

I'm so sorry to hear that. Do you think it may be a piched nerve? I have one of those and it hurts like h*#! at times.

Love how the sunlight is pouring through the window on your doggie. I bet he/she was enjoying that. Hope you feel better soon.

Charlene said...

Thank you so much for stopping in for a visit. I finally got finished with my horrible work schedule & like you am anxious to get caught up with my friends in blogland. SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO sorry to hear you hurt your back! Hope you are feeling better. Hmmm Christmas was a long time ago for it to still be hurting. Poor dear. Have you seen the good ole
doctor yet? Take care of yourself.

Oh Janie, I hope your back is getting better! I have degenerative disc in my back and it flares up at times too. I no likee! I do however, enjoy you stopping by my blog and leaving me such sweet comments. Yep, it was EXACTLY what you said was wrong with the washing machine. I wonder if I would have just told the repairman that, it woulda saved me the $60 diagnostic fee????!!! LOL

Olive Rue said...

Hi Jane!

It would really depend on which one you wanted. Some of the materials I can't get anymore. Or, maybe I could make something completely new. What did you have in mind?

Beth at Aunties said...

Janie,

I so understand that throbbing toothache in your back! I am so terribly sorry you are expereincing it. Pain meds can do weird stuff to us! I am waiting for another MRI. I broke my back in 2 places almost two years ago after the facets on l4 l5 and s1 vetebraes broke off... mu nerves were 95% compromised. I now have 2 6 inch rods and 6 screws trying to hold my spine together from my tailbone up. There isn't a day that goes by without the toothache. That is exactly like I describe it also. I am hoping there is some bone growth along the rods and screws from my bone grafts from my hips that will show up on the MRI.
I hope with some rest, ice and hot baths you will soon feel much better. Physical therapy helps also:) Please take care of you. we all will be here when you feel better.

with bloggy love!
Beth
