BACK....from Mississippi

We are home from Mississippi and I have no pictures to post of this trip.   Very disappointing for me.   

Sam had a good show at the Pecan Growers meeting......Mylee and Trey had a great time in the pool and they enjoyed seeing the Mississippi river..... For was quite an interesting trip!

For about three or four months now, my hips have been hurting and my back has felt out of place!  These things make for good signs that exercise is important.  I believe that the older we get, the MORE exercise we need.

Have I been paying close attention to my body and to my beliefs on the exercising thing???  No...the answer is NO I HAVEN'T.

All it took for me was a very hard bed for two nights in a hotel....and lifting a suitcase.  Not a heavy suitcase at that....just a simple bag, and back goes out!

I can definitely testify that having to ride for 5 hours to get home, with a back that is shooting sharp pains all across my lower back....was not FUN!

Could not have happened at a worse time.   I've had grandkids since last Wednesday and they will be here until tomorrow.   Don't get me wrong....the kids have been awesome.   I just feel so bad that we haven't been able to entertain them the way I had intended, while their parents were away.   

Poor Sam.....he had to cook his own Father's day meal.  I must say, the BBQ ribs, baked potatoes and baked beans were totally awesome!  He did an excellent job....   

I went to the chiropractor this morning for an adjustment.   Hopefully, in two or three days....I will be back on my feet!

I had no idea that it had been 2 years since I had seen my Chiropractor. time fly's.   I intend to do keep up with my monthly adjustments from here on out!!

Hope you all have a day filled with much joy...

Hoppefully you'll be up and at it soon.
There is nothing like travelling when you
don't feel well.

Take care.

Oh no! I'm so sorry you've been in such pain. I hope the adjustment helps, usually it does. I hope you can take it easy this week and let your back heal. I'll say a prayer for you my friend. Hugs, Diane

I do hope you start improving. Nothing like back pain.

Oh, Shug, that sounds like a dreadful trip! I remember once I bent over to tie a shoelace and that's all it took to throw my back out of whack. Hope you get back to normal very soon so you can enjoy those beautiful grands of yours. Lord, please lay your healing hands on our dear friend, Shug. Amen.

I can relate to that kind of back pain and it's no fun. Hope it settles down quickly.

Yikes! Hope you're feeling better, Shug! It's not fun traveling with that, but I'm sure the kids get it and understand now that you're home. Happy "chiropracting," I hope he fixes it soon!

Hi, Shug...sorry you felt bad on the trip. Bummer, for sure.
I've never really understood what people mean when they say their "back is out"...
guess because I've never had back problems. It gets tired quick as I age, tho.

Shug - I sure hate that for you!
Out of town and with the kiddos- definitely not fun!
When is there ever a time for the back to go out?! I can't tell you the last time I've been to the Chiropractor... I'm gonna guess and say 2007!
I'm writing a post right now updating my health- making exercise a new habit.
I'm with you-- we are designed to move. The older we get- the more important it is! Hope you're well soon!
