A Bit of a Break

Hello everyone!!!

Just taking a bit of a break. I don't think I've mentioned it here but I have fibromyalgia. I don't generally talk about it because it is just a fact of my life and I deal with it. I can go months with only minor symptoms and then I will get a flair up and it's just hard to do everyday things. When things are good...I go, go, go because I don't know when I won't be able to do that for a while. I am having a pretty good flair up right now so it's slow, slow, slow for me. I am listening to my body and resting more and will hopefully be back to go, go, go soon. I do have some pics to show you but I need to put them on my computer yet. I will be posting again soon and checking in on you all too! I just won't be able to be posting as much or doing as much as I would like to for a bit.

Have a great day!!! Hugs!!!

ha ha -- you just like that the owner's name on the window is KIM! The world's best name! Ummm, maybe second best. :-)))

You are the queen of the yo yo!! Love your current selections.

Hope you are feeling better soon. I shared an office some years ago with a friend who suffered from fibromyalgia. This was around 2001 or so? Trying to get physicians to take her seriously was a never ending battle. They were always wanting to prescribe her anti-depressants!! GRRRRRRRR. There seems to have been a real change in the past two years in acceptance by the medical establishment that this is a real condition, not a moody woman thing. And it's about time!

Sunshine and happiness to you today! Ronda

Hope you're feeling MUCH better. I've been VERY familiar with FMG for about the past 15 years and will attest to the fact that naps are among my best friends.

Can't wait to to see pics of your latest thrifty finds. I'm going through major thrifting/yard sale withdrawl so I'll have to get my "fix" through you!

Blessings from the creek!
