I'm still here!
Okay....the craft show is over and so is the mad rush to finish projects. I am so glad to be done with that! It was fun, it was hard work, and I made a few bucks.
I am getting over a back thing...I'm not calling it an injury, because I didn't "injure" myself. I just woke up last Monday and could barely walk, stand up straight, or turn to the side. I'm better now, but still have tender spots when I turn to the side. Have not exercised in a week. Just couldn't bear to do anything. Today I did some pilates, and I felt pretty good. I'm gonna try the treadmill tomorrow. I have really missed working out. I never thought I would hear myself say that! I was able to keep the weight off this week, so that's good. Normally I would have used it for an excuse to pig out.
I got some really sad news (sad to me) today. I've known for awhile that my son was going to Iraq in Oct., but we just heard last week that he's going to Afghanistan instead. That bothered me, but okay....let's get it over with. TODAY...as soon as I walked in the door to work, I found out his orders have changed, and he's off to Afghanistan NOW, TODAY. I am so upset, and have been like a cry baby all day. I didn't even get to say goodbye or tell him I love him. I don't know how long he'll be out of touch, but do me a favor....keep him in your prayers.
