Sorry to be so boring! Still not much going on around here, Beth's wedding is less than a month away and prom is the week before that so it seems that everything we do is related to one or the other.

My back has had no change, I'm getting very discouraged now, we're getting close to the 4 month mark now and I really think I should be seeing some improvement. It's not like it was when I first came home but it's worse than it was before surgery. No wonder I feel like I'm going to lose my mind. It doesn't help that most people think I'm making it or faking it and I have no idea how to make them see that I'm really in paid. I've pretty much given up and decided if they do believe me that's great, if the don't, well I guess I don't need family and friends in my life like that.

Josh is graduating from NSCC next Friday morning! Now he has to find a job, which isn't very easy around here. So for now he's trying to find something around here for the summer and then if he gets something in the city he will have money saved up to get an apartment. Breanna is almost finished grade 8, next year will be his last year in Jr High, she'll be off to the high school, gahhhhh. How do they grow up so fast?

Anyway, I suppose that I should go figure out what supper will consist of. LOL Have a great weekend everyone!

Photo Christmas Cards Online

I love that these days we can make all kinds of cards without leaving the comfort of our home. The last few years I have made all of our photo christmas cards online. I know it's a bit early to think of your Christmas cards but they also offer many other cards for many occasions. You can do your birth announcements, wedding announcements and invitations to any occasion you have coming up.

Sunless Tanning Products

It's the time of year that we all want a tan. I can't wait to get a tan but have no idea how I'll manage to sit out in the sun and be comfortable. I can sit in my chair and get the front but I'll never be able to lay and get my back, so I've been looking into different sunless tanning products. I've thought of trying the spray tan and really wish I had the money to buy all the equipment to be able to tan other people, there's nobody handy to here, the closest place to have it done is about an hour away so I'm sure it would be a great way to make some money!

If you have a guitar player in your family and are looking for a great gift for them, how about an amp? I was just doing some looking around and came across this site that sells a wide variety of aer amps. They have many different styles and many prices so you are sure to find one to fit your budget. They have a Memorial Day sale going on right now where you get 15% off any order over $199.00. Just choose your amp and use the coupon code that is on the top of the page. Also they offer free shipping on all orders over $25, who doesn't love free shipping?!

Wall Mount Fireplace

I have always wanted to have a fireplace, it would be so nice since I seem to be cold more days than not. Today it was +19 and I was in the house freezing. I wish we had a place for a gorgeous wall mount fireplace. They sure have some nice ones on this website. I think my favorite one is the round one, how cute is that? I've never seen fireplaces like these ones and the prices are far cheaper than I expected them to be. If you have any questions you can call their toll free number or even chat with someone for live support, which is my favorite way to ask questions, I love it when companies have that option on their site.

Post Surgery

No, they didn't kidnap me when I went for surgery, LOL. I was actually out of there faster than expected. So I had surgery on Wed. and came home Monday evening. By the next day I was thinking I should have just stayed and enjoyed the IV pain meds for a few more days but it was also nice to be home. We got home at 9 that night, I had a shower, put my jammies on and laid back in my Lazy Boy...and woke up at 5am. LMAO I guess these guys were trying to watch TV and couldn't hear it over my snoring. Hey, I hadn't slept in almost a week, what did they expect?

It's been a rough couple of months, I'd like to say that I was expecting this, well, I guess I was, I just thought I could be the different case. I still have a lot of pain most days, some worse than others, I can go to the laundry room and come back up and be ready to have a nap. Sure takes the life out of you. I see my surgeon next Friday to see how it's healing and see if he will lift some of the restrictions. Like driving and having a bath, I'm so sick of having showers. LOL

I know it's been 2 months since I've blogged but I sure don't have much to tell you. My life has been inside these walls, I haven't been out too much, last weekend we went to Lunenburg to see Doug's Dad, first time I've seen him since January, he's doing well and we can't wait to get him moved up here at Queens Manor.

Josh only has another week of school and then starts his on the job training which we hope will turn into full time employment. Breanna as 2 competitions left and that will be the end of her cheerleading. She's decided for sure this time that if she can't go to the city on a team, she'd rather not be on any. I'm quite sure this time she won't change her mind.

Anyway, I should go have my shower and wish I was having a bath. LOL
