It all started with a small basket of laundry that I was routinely putting away.
I reached down while at the same time reaching over and *BAM*, a shock of pain shot horizontal across my back and shoulders.  OWWIE!!!!  It was so painful that I couldn't breathe.  Fast forward several hours of heat and resting and stretching, and I thought I was all fixed up.  Not so fast there missy... Since Saturday, I have had so much pain and I knew that I needed to get it figured out before we left on our vacation.   Today I went to the chiropractor who gave me the news that I had popped a rib out of place.  Are you kidding?? Putting away laundry?  That's something I do nearly everyday!?   The chiropractor actually wanted to see me twice today since we are leaving in the morning.  He helped me SO much, I wanted to kiss the man. (I didn't...)  But isn't it just so interesting that one can get injured just going about the regular business of life.  It wasn't like I was doing anything strenuous or adventurous or crazy... Tonight, I am so grateful for the kind chiropractor who took care of me.  I can still feel the tightness, which he said was normal, but the pain has greatly subsided.

We are going on a short trip tomorrow.  Our destination is St. George, UTAH to go play in Zion National Park.  We are sort of like groupies of National Parks.  Any chance we can go and get a stamp in our National Park passport book, we do.  I'm so excited for the trip!!  The kids can hardly wait.  Molly, the doggy, is the only one not wagging her tail.  She understands what the suitcases mean, and even though she will have a nice friend stay here at the house with her, she still doesn't like to be without her main man - Michael.

So have you updated your Apple device with the latest IOS??? DONT!!!!  Its a royal pain in the BEHIND.  Nothing will work like it worked before.  I'm not one who likes a lot of change, so had I known that I would have to not only CHANGE but then I would have to figure it OUT.... Oh BOY - Its not been fun, and honestly, I still don't know if I have figured out all of the bugs.

And speaking of not liking change... I've actually been wanting to shake things up a teeny tiny bit in my world, and a great opportunity has come around.  I did a fitness challenge that I came across through social media, and the on-line coach that I had was just awesome.  She was a motivator and encourager and someone to ask questions of and bounce ideas off of.  It seemed like a "job" that I would find fun, motivating people and helping people... so I have talked with her about possibly working for her and doing what she does, Fitness Coaching (which is a lot of just encouraging people to be their best!).  We shall see where this takes me... I am TERRIFIED to do something like this.  Which might just be the reason to do it!!!

My small group Bible Study is doing Angela Thomas' new study, "Stronger".  It is SO wonderful, as I knew it would be. But even better than wonderful, it is very timely for me right now.  So many places in my life I want to be stronger. Not just better, but Stronger.  I am loving it.
My verse for right now is
Phil 4:13 - I love the Amplified version
"I have strength for all things in Christ Who empowers me (I am ready for anything and equal to anything through Him Who infuses inner strength into me; I am self-sufficient in Christ's sufficiency)."

Turning in for the night. Time for a heating pad and my book.

Thanks for reading... those of you who do :).
