Good Day!

Today has been fantastic.  And the day's not even over yet!

I woke up this morning feeling remarkably better.  I took mega doses of vitamins yesterday so I'm not sure if that's what turned the virus around or if it was the completely amazing barbecue chicken pizza that Hannah brought for family dinner last night (the pizza was from Papa John's and might be my new fave pizza) or all the people praying for me or a combination of things.  Whatever did it, I'm grateful.  The only fly in the ointment is my neck and shoulders.  They are still hurting a lot in spite of getting a massage every day, hot packs, cold packs, stretches and pain killers.  I finally got myself into the chiropractor this morning but he had a hard time working his magic since all my muscles were so tight.  He did manage to adjust my spine somewhat but I have to go back tomorrow so he can try again.

When I got home from the chiropractor I had a good news message on my phone from Gary.  He starts his new shift of four 10's next week which means he has a 3-day weekend coming up.  I am beyond excited about this!  Gary has been longing to have this shift for years and now it's finally happening.  Now, every other weekend will be a 4-day weekend for him.  Oh, the endless possibilities of how we'll be able to fill those days off together.

THEN, when I went online to do the banking I discovered that Gary had received his final government grant for his apprenticeship yesterday.  Yes!  That will be a nice chunk to pay down our line of credit.

And, now this may be a small-ish thing, but Gary is going out for dinner with his work crew tonight which means that only Paige and I will be home (Cam's working) so I don't really have to cook.  Woot!

Such a good day! :)

Excellent day!! Are you using pain killers or muscle relaxants? Muscle relaxers should loosen up your muscles enough to allow your chiropractor to do his/her job. Plus they should help with the pain.

On another note, not having to cook is never a small thing - it also means not having to do the dishes!

Hope you feel better quick!
