I am working at increasing my walking but it did not happen today because of back pain again. Hopefully tomorrow will be better.

Good morning. It is cool here at 37 degrees. Another cloudy and rainy day. We really arenít getting much rain but hoping that out of all the rain chances this week we will get a good soaker. Then it can clear up and maybe I will be in better shape to get out and work in the yard. I didnít take any Tylenol yesterday and felt pretty good. I got 3 loads of laundry done and also a few little things around the house. Still very short of breath. I did walk for 30 minutes and had a total of 6,129 steps for the day. I was a much more productive day than I have been having. Hope today is like that too.

We are starting a new week and I sure hope it is a better week. I am finally starting to wean myself off the Tylenol and only took two last night before bed. I was still unable to do much yesterday because of my breathing but I think when the back is completely better I will be able to work through it and keep going but right now when I get short of breath it causes the back to hurt and I donít want the spasms back. I was able to walk 20 minutes yesterday and had a total of 4,126 steps for the day,. It was better than nothing and I did a few little things around the house. It started to rain a little last night and it really hasnít been much. Barely enough to wet the ground but it looks like there will be plenty of chances during this week. Hope we get a real good soaker at least once during the week. Hope you all have a good day.

Jane, yes pain can be so exhausting. I am tired of it. It is over 3 weeks now.

Lee, hope you have a good weekend too.

Good morning. Cooler today but tolerable. Yesterday was not as good a day. I did 25 minutes of walking and had a total of 4,921 steps for the day. I was very short of breath. I did get the dead stuff off the Bee Balm plant and Tina got the tops cut off the huge mum plant I have. I didnít do much else. Hailley looks so much better with her hair cut. She was pretty tired last night. I will sure be glad when I can say I am pain free again. Iím am getting worn out from having this pain. I do have a doctorís appointment with my primary doctor in a little over a week so that is good. Well, going to keep this short today. Hope everyone has a good weekend

It is going to be another beautiful day at about 70 degrees with sun and no wind. Yesterday was 67 and sunny so I am sure loving the fresh air and sunshine. I only walked about 5 minutes but that is the first in about a week and an half. I had 2,767 steps for the day. I was able to get by with 4 tylenol for the day and that is so good that I didnít need a pain pill. I hope today goes the same. I will try to walk a little more. I am really getting antsy from all the sitting and inactivity but will be so careful not to get to wild. I am not ready to go back to the back pains again. Tonight Barb will bring dinner because I donít think I am up to going out this week but it will be good to have a chat with her. I am also getting a new prescription for Hailley for her skin condition because it just isnít going away. It is bad again already so need to get something to work for her. She gets her hair cut on Thursday and that always helps when it is very short. Well enough for today. Have a good one.

Jane, good job on the walking. I am trying to get back to it again.

Yesterday wasnít too bad a day. I only needed two pain pills and the rest of the time was able to use Tylenol. Today I started out with Tylenol and hope to only need that for the day. I will still take it easy which is so hard to do right now when it is so nice out. It seems like this happens every year at spring clean up and fall clean up time. I think it has to do with the season change. I sure am slept out. LOL. Hope you all had a great Easter and lots of family.

Happy Easter to all that celebrate the day. It is a little cooler today but going to be a nice day anyway. Light showers this morning and it is so nice to smell the fresh air after a cool rain. Yesterday was kind of tough with my back but hoping today will be better. I am taking it easy and letting it heal completely before I start doing anything. I hate feeling this helpless but I know better than try do something that will cause more damage. It took a lot of years for me to come to terms with this fact but I finally did. LOL. I will watch a some of my taped shows and limit myself on the tablet because that isnít always good for the back either. I have a lot of time to just enjoy this lovely sunshine and the warmer temps so that is a good thing.

I have been missing in action for the last week as I have had severe muscle spasms in my back and have not been on the computer at all. I have had my fill of pain pills and muscle relaxers and am now finally starting to be able to do a few things again. I am down to Tylenol for most of the day and hope I can be completely free of them by next week. The pain pills cause me to sleep a lot so have done absolutely nothing. I will keep this short for today and will try post more tomorrow. Hope you are all doing well.

David, I know what you mean. Take care and when the cold is over and you feel better you can get started then. Hope that is soon for you and don't get discouraged.

It is already Friday and I am so glad that it will be a nice weekend with temps in the 50s. That will be a first for this year. The flood is getting up there Flood stage is 18 feet and we are at 30 feet and supposed to crest at 37 feet. Our record is 40 some feet. Yesterday was a fairly good day. I did 30 minutes of walking and had a total of 5,468 steps for the day. I vacuumed the bedroom and front entry/porch area and did some other small projects that needed to be done. I stayed busy but breathing was not as good yesterday. We have a change of weather coming and there might be some showers coming up. Gave Hailley her bath and she felt better when done. She really doesnít care for her bath but she is good when I give it to her. I would like to finish the basic cleaning today but time will tell how I feel.

It will be cloudy with rain or snow flurries today and windy, I can tell it in my breathing because I am short of breath. I feel good but with the shortness of breath. I will go slowly today. Yesterday was another good day with walking 30 minutes and a total of 6,487 steps for the day. I did 3 loads of laundry and a lot of decluttering type things. They are predicting some 50ís this weekend and that sounds so nice. I will really enjoy those days. Hope every one has a good day.
