I am feeling really blah lately. I guess that's why I have taken this hiatus from blogging. Not to mention the fact that I am so far behind in posting things that I don't even know where to begin.
Justin hurt his really badly hurt his finger. He has been working for his Uncle at his construction company. He got his left index finger caught in one of the drill presses at work. Not to worry, he still has a finger, but 70 tons of pressure applied to a finger is gunna leave a mark and leave a mark it did. It's not pretty to look at, but it's getting better.
My back has been really bothering me lately. I guess countless hours bent over peoples feet giving them pedicures, and filing full sets is getting to me. I have to admit that I have been back was hurting so badly the other night, I took half of one of Justin's pain killers just to get some relief. But, I guess I should just feel blessed that I am busy at work....the extra hours have really helped us out financially.
I'm excited for Valentine's Day though. I like Valentine's Day. I like a day full of "I love you's", I like the red, white and pink decorations (I love love love mine by the way), and I like dropping off little love notes with the boys to all the important people in our lives.
Even though I feel a little blah....I do feel very blessed for all that I have in my life. I have a wonderful man who teaches me something new everyday. Who puts up with me and loves me for all my craziness and blah-i-ness! I have two very handsome boys that I love with ever ounce of my heart. They are so loving and sweet (most of the time). We have a beautiful home, awesome families that live close by...we are so blessed!

Having back issues can cause the blah's instantly. I hope your back starts to feel better. Maybe all you need is an adjustment and a full day of R&R.

Amen sista! Your are so blessed and I am grateful for your sweet, sweet spirit. The treats you made for the choir were super cute and thoughtful. I handed the leftovers out to several people in church who just looked like they needed a sweet treat. They all said to tell you "thanks". I also made sugar cookies for them so they were totally covered in the sugar department.
And... I love Valentines day too! Red and pink are my favorite colors and together they make me super happy. I don't know why but they just do.
Hope your back is feeling better soon. Maybe some back exercises would help.
