Today is my birthday!!! I have always enjoyed my birthday and getting older, but this birthday is even more special as last week I had a surgical procedure done on my back and it feels great. My left leg has quit hurting and that's a bonus!!! So, now my challenge is to get exercising and lose some weight. I can't do much for a month in the exercise realm as they don't want anything to move. I have slowly been cutting back the amount of food I eat and increasing fruits/vegetables. It's certainly good to feel this good as its been more than a year! Standing straighter and walking without pain is so amazing, we all take it for granted! So here's to a great year and start to less pain/more moving! Blessings!

Gordon comes to the store almost everyday to have lunch with me, we often say we should save money and I should pack my lunch, but he comes in and we spend 20 minutes together during the day. Breaks up both our day, if he can't he will let me know. Guess it might be part of getting older or maybe we enjoy each others company after all these years, still!
Tuesday is surgery day for me. I get the spinal cord stimulator implant. We travel to Amery, Wi. for the surgery which is about an hour from here. Surgery is 1:30 p.m. and we should be heading for home by 5p.m. I'm pretty excited and ready for not so much pain!!! Blessings!


So with our 4 legged baby gone to boot camp, I decided to take a week off of work! So, today being the first day that I could sleep later th...
