First of all, I would like to apologize - sincerely - because when I set up this blog, I didn't give consideration that someone reading it might suffer seizures and I set it up all black! I am so sorry for that! I was talking with my husband the other day while we were at a Rodney Atkins' concert and he was concerned that the flashing lights might give me a mini seizure. I kept having to look away and then I remembered....Black websites with bright fonts and pictures used to give me the worst of headaches! So the new color is green for growth!
Growth is an ongoing process. I am currently 10 years post injury and I'm still learning and growing through it. Lately I've been under tremendous stress, thoughts running wild, depression, fears, etc...and it has raised my pain level to heights it hasn't seen in years! Luckily I've been off work dealing with the due date of the baby we lost last year and the after affects of the baby we lost last week! (Hence some of the stress).....but despite the pain and stress, my husband and I did manage to have a couple of really special nights out!
First Up! Our Birthday...we ate out at Genghis Grill where my Lovie taught me to use chopsticks!
Yes at 35 years of age I finally managed to eat with those things.(though it did lock up my fingers pretty bad, it was worth it to learn something new)
Then he bought us both a cake, since our birthdays are 5 days apart! (DQ ice cream cake, specially made at the DQ where he works)
|we waited for his birthday to cut it and celebrate quietly|
Then he took me to see a late, late night movie and I laughed like I haven't laughed in days! (tip* carry a blanket into the theaters if the cold locks up your muscles...you'll be able to actually enjoy the movie!)
Then a friend gave us tickets to see Rodney Atkins (sitting on the ground wasn't near as painful after a pain pill and tiny swig of budlight weeeeeeeee) ....and well, he got his drink on as you can see
- go ahead Lovie you deserve it!
In short - we had a great time together - despite the pain -
