Thank you sooo much!!



I had a WONDERFUL birthday yesterday and Thank you ALL sooo much for the Birthday wishes you have left for me.HOW SWEET!:)

My Mom surprised me yesterday around eleven thirty.She called and told me not to eat lunch cause she was coming over.Then when she got here..her hands were full of all kinds of COOL stuff.:) She had stopped at the grocery store and had them make a huge sub sandwich which they cut into two pieces for us...Jimmy shared some too.:) She had gotten some chips to go with it and then in her other hand she had this pretty cupcake/cake for me...along with some sugar free candies.(Guess she knew that after the cake ..I would be on sugar free for a while.hehe) Jim stopped off after work and picked up the round chocolate cake and grabbed a few candles we had on hand..:) I am pointing at them and counting them in the pic cause Carrie (oldest grand daughter) was making sure the amount was correct.hehe Yes..I am fifty six. I have been saying that for a little while until my sister pointed out that if I was already fifty six(before my bday)..that made her a year older too.LOL She didn't like that.hehe She is four years younger than me. :) Mom stayed for lunch and did the dishes and then went back home cause she had made plans. Later in the afternoon Robby and family came over to celebrate with me.( We had met at Longhorns the evening before last for my bday dinner...so this was the dessert part of the meal.LOL We put Netflix on ( they have a free trial period) and Robby found an Animaniacs movie and we watched that and the girls sat through the whole thing. I take it they liked it.:) Too cute! Then we ate cake and ice cream and afterwards they had to leave cause they get up at four in the morning to go to work.Whew!! I don't think I could do that everyday.:(
Jim had to reformat my hard drive this week cause it went kaput.(that seems to be happening a lot lately and he thinks it might be because we are buying them cheap at the Micro Center.) So....we went to Office Max and got a better one and bought the two year warranty. See..you can teach an old dog new tricks.hehe Jim spent yesterday afternoon getting the new drive installed and then putting programs back on it. I sure hope that solves the problem...cause if this keeps happening..I may have to change my hobby.:)
My back is doing better and I am sooo happy that I am able to sit for a little while and post this to my blog.:) Thank you all for your well wishes and prayers!
Hugs to all!!

Happy Birthday To Me :)


Today I turn another year older...Thank the Lord!!! :)
We celebrated my b-day yesterday evening since the family have to work today.I picked the restaurant that I wanted and without going into great details...We won't be going back.:)Let's just say that prices went up and quality went down.:(
On a good note...I was able to sit without that awful pain in my back...thanks to my Chiropractor .!! YAY!! :) He wants me to come back once a month to maintain all the work he has been doing to get me back in shape.Jim and I think it will be worth the investment. I'm not completely mended but well on the way.Whew!!! That was a rough one.:)

Thanks for stopping in!:)
Hugs,
Valinda

My back is improving...little by little with the help of my Chiropractor!!! The first day I went in..he told me that my right foot was 1 1/2 inches shorter than the left foot.So he adjusted my tailbone and I was able to stand straighter right away.Still extremely painful..but was sooo glad to be able to stand without bending forward.:) Then the next time I went to him..my tailbone had shifted and he had to correct it cause the opposite side was troubling me.He adjusted it again the next day cause it had slipped out again.:( Well..today I am suppose to go back to have another adjustment. I sure hope it holds cause this is adjusting the amount of money I have in my wallet too.LOL I still have problems with the muscles in my lower back.They have been strained and won't allow me to sit or stand for very long without protesting ...then I have to go lay back down on my bed and lay flat so it will relieve the pressure some.
I am sure the family is ready for me to get better too and to be able to get back into my routine . Jim and Christy have been helping with the cooking and cleaning.Jimmy has been doing the vacuuming and dishes too..taking the trash out..running to get me something to eat and drink.:) Thanks guys!!!:)
The Doc told me not to mop floors or to vacuum any more unless it is an emergency.To get someone else to do it for me...Sorry kids! :( ....cause I am getting close to having disk problems. How he can tell that..I don't know unless it's the fact that my back won't stay adjusted?? He hasn't taken any x-rays yet...so I will just wait to see about that....but the NOT mopping and vacuuming..I think I will keep that advice.LOL
Thank you all for your well wishes and prayers! How Sweet! Thanks for the lovely comments you have left for me too! I really appreciate it.:)

Hugs,
Valinda

Christy's Newest Doll

Christy made another doll as a Christmas present for Liz. Her SIL and my DIL.:) I LOVE the way the pic turned out.I just wanted to take a pic of it before she wrapped it up and I asked her to put it on the desk next to me so I could get a better view.When I saw how it looked in front of the globe after checking the pic out on my camera ..I thought of how terrific happy accidents can be.:) It MADE the pic as far as we are concerned.:) Liz..LOVED it!! Sure hope Christy is able to do more of these.She is SOO talented...even if I do say so myself!:)
