Football Season

School football season is upon us again.  I love to watch football.  I really didn't know how I would do when it's my son out on the field.  Last year was his first year to play.  This year he is an upper class man and  year older and a bit more bulked up.  So he is ready for the hits.  I'm not for sure if I am ready for these hits.  With a new camera I can see all of them.

Here he is warming up.  I have a confession to make.  I almost walked right by him and didn't recognize him as my child.  He looks so grown up in his gear.  Good thing he said "hey mom"  Wow!!                              

                   He's in there doing the right thing.  Get the jump on the other guy before he gets you.

Get him get him!! Woohoo!!

                                This one kinda took my breath away and made my stomach flip. 

We lost this game 8-6.  Lots of practice for the next game is in order.  The Boy will get to change positions to center for the next game.  Coach is trying to see which position he will preform better in, or he could end up being a floater of a few different ones.

Do you ever feel like life is passing by way to quickly?  I've told myself to slow down, your house doesn't have to be perfectly clean everyday, you can have dirty laundry in the hamper.  I made myself a promise to enjoy more time with my family.  So that is what I've been doing lately.  I also stated that I learned that life is more important that this little corner of the world.  That is why I haven't been on here for over two months.  I have some stories to share and some pictures to show. I'm not for sure if I will make it back more regular, working on it.    I got a new camera the other day. The Boy and I took it out today for a walk down the road.  Here's a little fellow we just happened to come across.

Good Reads

Have you read anything good books lately?  I read The Help awhile back.  Can't wait for a girls night to see the movie.

I just finished reading The Secret Life of Bees.  It's a really quick read. I finished it in two days.

I'm always looking for a good book, and since I recieved a few gift cards recently for my Nook. I'm needing some books.

Better Back

After going through therapy and seeing a pain specialist, I'm pleased to say I have a better back.

I found out it probably really wasn't my back that was the problem.  Even though I do have two bulging disc.  The Doctor believed it was a nerve inside my hip joint.  Good thing the pain went away by itself or I would have been hospitalized and had to endure shots.

My back still gets little twinges but nothing major.  I have recently started doing Pilates. For strengthening of my core which will keep my back in alignment, so hopefully no surgery in my future.

Thanks for your prayers and support.

Baring Myself

I recently started physical therapy for my herniated disc, which is pushing on my sciatic nerve which is causing constant pain.

I went to the rehabilitation place and was interviewed by a very tiny young woman, which I thought was going to be my PT person.  Imagine my surprise when she came back with a very tall large man to say he was my PT person.

He went over the exercises I will be doing for the next 3 weeks no biggie, I think I can handle them.

Ok here is where the scary part starts::

I'm pretty much a modest person, of course I have worn the halter top, bikini,  low rider jeans. But pretty much now days and a few, okay alot of extra pounds later. I keep myself covered up.

My PT person told me "we have to make skin contact with the ultra sound machine", okay I really wanted to melt into the floor at this point.  I had to lay on my stomach on the examine bed with my pants pulled down and my shirt pulled up.  While my PT person rubbed nice warm ultra sound gel into my hip area and performed the ultra sound.

I'm thankful he was very professional and tried to put me at ease the entire time.  We told stories or our children and about growing up and living in the same town almost all of our lives.

I only have 3 times a week for the next 3 weeks.

United States of America Anthem (The Star-Spangled Banner)

I hope everyone has a Happy Fourth of July. I will be spending it with family and friends. Having more food than our bellies can possibly hold, swimming and the finale will be enjoying The Boy shoot off fireworks.

God Bless each and everyone of you

Sunday Water Fun

Yesterday was HOT in our area of the state I think they said it was 104.  The boy wanted to have a water gun fight.  Hubs told him okay. They went outside to have said water fight and of course one of the water guns wouldn't work so Hubs just used the hose.

The Boy was having a blast squirting Hubs.  Hubs said the water in the gun felt like bath water so he just stood there and let him go at it.

Look at that wet soaked face.  I'm thinking I was in trouble, of getting a blast of water from his wildness.
