Busy Days

Whew! Last Thursday I was visiting with Louise when she complained about pain in her lower back. She didn't mention it much and she's not much of a complainer so I didn't think much about it. Friday I was at thier house eating when she mentioned it again. Dirt asked her if she had fallen on her backside or bumped it because she said she thought she might have broken it. By Saturday she and Dirt went to PriMed where they told her that she had some swelling and it might be tendinitis (sp?)....idiots. Saturday night Lisa had come into town and Sunday morning we went to early service and then by Louise's to check on her. Wow, she looked rough. She was in so much pain and the worst part was that the pain meds were making her sick to her stomach. After that me and Lisa were on our way to Jacksonville, FL. We arrived at Lisa's parents at about 6 and pretty much just rested that night. Monday we rested some more and then did a little shopping. Tuesday was our beach day. Wednesday was shopping at the outlets in St. Augusting before church that night. I went to Lake Forest where Granddaddy had been the preacher and it was SO GOOD to get to see all of the people down there who are so like family to me! Thursday we were back on the road to Montgomery where Leigh had picked up the Nichols kids that I was supposed to babysitting and I took them back to their house where they both kicked my butt at Wii bowling before work! I also came by and checked on Louise whom, while I was gone, had ended up in the emergency room having a huge cyst removed! It has been a miserable week for her. Thursday night was tough at work, first of all because I was exhausted and second because I am just going through a terrible time at work. I always said that I wouldn't ever work somewhere that I hated going to everyday and for about the past three weeks I have been. One way or the other things have got to change soon. Anyways, that brings us to today (Friday) When I got off work this morning I went straight to the chiropractor, then brought Louise breakfast, went to the dr, came back to Louise's to help clean up a little, then off to Wetumpka where I am housesitting. Did the stuff I needed to and slept there and now am back for supper and visiting with Louise before work. Dirt is out of town this weekend so I am her stand in nurse! Tomorrow I am taking her back to the doctor, going back to Wetumpka, and then babysitting in the afternoon before coming back for supper with Louise and back to work. Sunday in church of course and then after I get off work Monday morning I go to Faulkner for my first day working at the football office! I get to do a week or so of that before I start school again. We'll see how it goes....another job and school on top of football season being a busy time of year for me anyways!
