Best Christmas Pageant Ever....and 16 days

Don't know if I've already posted that Zachary and Erin are in this play. Rehearsals have gone pretty well and I'm pleased at how well they have done. It seems to be natural for both of them. I, on the other hand prefer to be off the stage, or at least behind the curtains. I am co-stage manager. Wow, I never realized all a stage manager is responsible for . It's tough and I even share responsibilities! Tomorrow night is our first live show with an audience. It won't be a full house, as it is the patrons of the arts council, but an audience still the same. I think I am more nervous than the kids! The show runs through Sunday.
We leave for Disney in 16 days and I have so much to get done! After the play we will have Erins birthday party, our cousin gathering, make sure Christmas is ready and clean a couple of houses. I can't wait to get there and experience the magic at Christmas! I'll be sure to share.
I go to the doctor next Tuesday. I will be informing her that I do not want the permanent nerve stimulator yet. I'm just not ready. The Neurontin may be helping some, but not as much as I'd hoped. I will talk to her about other alternatives also or whether this is my last resort. Keep us all in your prayers as we go through this holiday season!

One more med and 26 days

I've been in a new nerve pain med for 3 days. The first two nights it seemed to help. Tonight is another story. No sleep yet and it's 3 AM. Hopefully i can blame it on the rain and storms. This medicine is only for the pain in my right leg. It won't help my back. The pain in my back is muscular.
Worried about all the walking at Disney, but hoping the magic of it all will be worth it! There are only 26 days til I get there.

Terrific Tuesdays: Top Ten Most Fun Things at Disney World – Number 8: Monster’s Inc. Laugh Floor Comedy Club


Well here it is, my 35th birthday. The saying goes that you are only as old as you feel. Haha! This past year I have been in so much pain, had a million medical procedures and doctor visits, that I truly know 85 year old women that feel younger than me. I went to doctor yesterday for a consult about a permanent nerve stimulator. It sounds bad and I don't think I'm ready to go that route. I sure am ready got the pain to stop and to get a food nights sleep. Haven't had that in almost 2 years. I pray daily that the pain will go away so I can enjoy life again and do things with my kids.
