Well, I didn't post again last night like I thought I would. I hurt too darn bad to sit anywhere for any length of time so being at the computer was out. To say it was an "off" night would be an understatement. If this is any indication - I normally set my side of the sleep number bed @ 5, yep..5 but last night's pain was so intense that I got up around 2'ish and reset it to a whopping 15! Who knows where it will end up tonight.

However, today has been much better...just as my children and I completely knocked out two walls and I was good and covered in drywall and my house totally trashed, my cousin, whom I haven't seen in over 20 yrs.,knocks on my door!

After the initial shock at seeing his smiling face I began to profusely apologize for my appearance and that of my house to which he said, "I don't care what it looks like, I came to see you - not your house!" That's family!! lol!

We spent the better part of our visit reminiscing about relatives and what we have done over the last 20 years. It's funny how something so simple, like a visit, can lift you up when you are feeling down. I know for me,it was just what the doctor ordered.

If I had to describe today, I would say it was full of old walls coming down, both factually and figuratively :) Either way, good cheer makes the pains more tolerable and we could all use a little of that no matter what the pain is.

So, on that note, I'm signing off - I have an early appointment with some HVAC people who are "allegedly" going to be here EARLY to fix my furnace (that was promised to be fixed no later than today :) "Ah, stuff happens though" - right??

Until next time!
