Sunday stuff...

See Dick and how he should have spent his Saturday...
Instead, he was out moving hoses and watering the grass seed he recently sowed (using water from our small pond). He slipped and fell on the wet ground...and now his bad back hurts awful bad! He'll be spending the day in the chair above, the bed, or the couch below.......
He is NOT a happy camper because he had planned to drive to Augusta today to pick up a tractor he bought, and there is NO WAY he can now do that. He'll be visiting the chiropractor tomorrow. He went Friday already, and that adjustment got undone for sure! He has a partially collapsed disk and frequently has problems with his muscles in that area. Of course he wants to avoid that *surgery* word!

I had a perfectly good Saturday...I stayed home all day and got mundane paperwork done, did some online training on my new phone (more on that another day), and never went beyond our back deck. I considered staying in my bathrobe all day...now that would have been PERFECT!

This last official day of summer will be a good one. I'm heading to church shortly, and will have 3 g/kids this afternoon to let the parents all have a date night. The other g/mother will have wee Will (see, I share!) so that she can take him to her church and show him off. I think that is a great idea, since he is such a cutie pie. Oh yes, he is now rolling over....so that means he now needs closer watching:-)

Hope y'all have a great Sunday. Life is good, in spite of the bad back! BTW, a very big HAPPY BIRTHDAY today to friend Lois Grebowski. Y'all go over and wish her a good day, OK?

That delete was from me. I can't type worth a darn...figure y'all didn't need a word search puzzle in today's comments...LOL!

Oh no... tell Dick I hope he gets to feeling better. Hubby has back issues (broke his L4 and L5 in the Navy) as well. Just the slightest move or twist messes his up. It's no fun. And not a good way to spend the day.

Gentle get well hugs for Dick.

Thanks for the birthday wishes!

SEE DICK LAY DOWN. SEE DICK REST!! I could not help it just thought of Dick and Jane for some reason. Remember them? I only hope that he gets some relief. Both Mike and I know all about back problems. I am still in awe that Mike does as much as he does and still works..Hm!! Sandy

I hate to hear about slips and falls!
Has dick ever tried yoga? I think it is better than surgery for back problems.

Sandy where did you get those peaches?

Ouch! I hate to hear of anyone with a bad back! It's one of the reasons I'm no longer working. A couple of days have passed since your post so I sure hope he feels much better! Your little furpersons are adorable!
