This growing old business is not for the faint of heart…it takes work to keep the body moving…and I have failed miserably!! Yup…I have not been going to the gym and exercising regularly…I have been busy having WAY TOO much FUN!!
Over ten years ago I was diagnosed with arthritis in my lower back…I was told by the back specialist to either go on medication or join a gym. I opted for the gym…it took a year to get my back in shape (or rather my core muscles) but I did it and have been pain free for over TWELVE years!! (This from someone who lived with chronic pain for several years!!) Exercising everyday has become a way of life and I knew that it was going to be a life long commitment!
So on Sunday when my back ‘went out’ I slapped myself and said I KNEW IT!! I have only been to the gym THREE times since arriving at the park!! THREE TIMES! It’s no wonder! Since Sunday I have been on pain meds…and flat on my back!! STUPID ME!!
BUT today I am better…and I’m happy to say that I’m off to the gym!! Jeeze…Road to California is in EIGHT DAYS…I have to be in shopping form!!
Before you feel too sorry for me, I DID manage to get to the Painted Lady Quilt Shop in Redlands on Saturday…SEE this is my problem…I am having WAY TOO MUCH FUN…I have to get out of the Quilt Shops and back into the gym……do you want to see what was there?…at the shop that is? NOT the gym…yup…we are cut from the same cloth!! Ask any quilter whether they would like to go to the Quilt Shop or the Gym…and I can tell you the answer!!
Yahoo…(insert a back flip here!! haha!) SALE SIGN on the outside of the shop!! That’s ALWAYS a good sign…
I arrived as this quilt was being taken down…it’s called Debonair and it was gorgeous!!
The shop has the whole line of Downton Abbey Fabrics…very pretty!
Loved this sweet little Schnibble’s quilt…
This was a panel and it was dang cute…especially if you have a little man in your life!
Lots to look at…
I’m loving that blue shirting…
Yup….lots of very nice things in the shop…and some of the fabric was 20% off…always a good thing!!
Sew today…no Quilting in the Clubhouse..:o(
Sitting is still difficult…but with a (gentle) round at the gym…followed by a soak in the hot tub I will be in fighting form!! Look out Road…(ow..ow..ow…)… Here I come…(hobble hobble hobble…)!!
Yup…this growing old is NOT for the faint of heart!!
Have a wicked Wednesday and happy Quilting!~P
