Some topics covered this week:

  • Looking forward to our holiday but so much to do before we can relax! Lots of lists in my journal.
  • I was feeling down one day and my husband posted the following on my wall on Facebook: Just in case no one told you today: Good morning; You’re beautiful; I love you; Nice butt. He always knows how to make me smile. 🙂
  • My troublesome back has made it’s presence known again, this time through incredible pain in my right leg. Last year it was the left leg. So I’ve been seeing my Chiropractor regularly because I really want to be able to walk when we are on vacation. Fingers crossed!

Until next time, happy writing!
