    I'm still having solar equipment problems and the service man is scheduled to come out today. So not so fantastic, but I'm getting quite a bit of my winter time readiness stuff accomplished. Feel good about that. And I've started up walking around the pasture for a mile once again. Feel good about that too!

    If you can find the point of pain really light massage works too. Muscle spasms are horrible. I hope you feel better soon.

    Oh my a massage would be absolutely wonderful, I'll have to talk to the hubby lol. Muscle spasms are the worst. I have scoliosis as well so it's a double whammy today.. I had cortisone shots in my back right after my daughter was born and it's been a year so I'm guessing it has worn off and I'm due to go back.. my doctor suggested fusing my spine, I'm very wary about it.. thank you Cathie! I hope you have a wonderful day! [emoji4]

    They usually start slow so hopefully the pain won't be really bad.

    For something that doesn't have any moving parts-you have a lot of parts coming loose

    It's weird because I pulled a bunch of muscles in my upper legs when I gave birth to my son. I had to learn that little tidbit on my own. I could actually feel the kink with 2 or 3 of my fingers and just smoothed it down until the pain would stop. It only flares up once in awhile 40 years later. It's not nearly as bad though. I'll be thinking and praying for you.

    Oh wow! When I had my daughter she came out 9 pounds ... But she popped my sacroiliac joints out of place and I'm still fighting with that. Thank you so much. I definitely will be trying to rub the kinks out..

    There aren't many scenery pics. We couldn't get off the boat in Freeport and I didn't get off the boat in Nassau. Earlier in the day while we were docked in Nassau. I was in the adult pool. None of the pools were handicapped accessible so I had to wobble on my but to get to the edge of the pool. Got in,had a great time. Then I had to get out. No steps with handrails only ladders. I got on the ladder with my good leg, stood up but then I had to turn to get my butt on the deck. Well it didn't work out so good the first time and jammed my shoulder a little. Second time went better but I needed to go to the room and take a painkiller and rest. My wife and mother in law went to the Nassau but didn't last long because it was hot. Nassau didn't really look that interesting. There was so much to do on the boat. I had a good time later that evening.

    Rose is lovely and you're beaming. I'm glad the both of you had fun.
