Quick Hello

Just wanted to stop in and say hi! I haven't been on the internet much as my sciatica has been giving me trouble.I messed my back up when I was in nursing and it usually comes and goes and I just push through the pain but this time I can't sit for more than a few minutes,the pain is intense and my leg is numb which never happened before.Feels really weird..I know I just gotta rest and I'll be fine but I'm getting stir crazy..LoL..Spring hasn't arrived yet,we got 6 inches of snow 2 days ago.It looks like it's coming Easter which is supposed to be 50 degrees.I'm ready to go junking.LoL..Plus getting some veggies planted.I'm not doing the big garden out grandma's this year since hubby's back is messed up.I'm going to try bucket gardening as I hate pulling weeds..I want to have a easy summer this year,lots of time with the girls they are growing up so fast,cooking out, spending time at the lake and of course looking for treasures and doing market.Hope you all are having a great week.Warm Blessings!~Amy

Rainy Day

 Cold rainy, windy day here.Good day for snuggling in but I'm busy cleaning and rearranging things around the house.I get frustrated with clutter. I think I want simple and cozy then I see a magazine or blog and think I want the clutter back.LoL..I have trouble with getting rid of certain things but lately it's hubby who is holding me back..Normally it's the opposite but like today I had a antique cupboard I wanted to get rid of.He said it's too big to take to market and too nice of a piece to get rid of.I think alot of it is that he thinks I'm upset because when we were struggling I sold a few pieces I didn't really want to.But I'm ok with it bills were more important than stuff at the time.So I moved the cupboard to the sun porch.His friend is helping me with moving some things thank goodness..That way hubby won't be incompatitated ...
 The weekend was warmer 50's .I went to the fleamarket to look.Hubby decided he would try to stay with me,well let's just say he was very patient..smile.. I know I was driving him nuts.He likes to run through and find the big bang stuff like old farm stuff,signs,butter churns, crocks.Well I like those things but I like to dig to and find the littles and long lost treasures that everyone looks over.I also like paper ephemera which he totally doesn't get..smile..To me the old lithos,advertising,journals,photos and letters are like looking into history and someones life.I also like old books from the 1800's to early 1900's and will go through boxes and boxes to find interesting ones.I kept telling him to go ahead but he stayed pretty close.We rarely go to fleamarket together.When we set up it's different He watches the stand and I run after it's set up and the early rush is gone while he sells.I did by a big box of victorian postcards and valentines.He says you have boxes and boxes of them at home..I'll sell most but will enjoy sitting and going through them.I don't collect them just enjoy the nostalgia...
Not much new happening my way just general life keeping me busy. Been stopping in and visiting everyone just not commenting as much as my computer time has been limited.Hope you all are having a great week.Warm Blessings!~Amy

 Well it's spring inside at least..smile..I'm content with nesting a few weeks but am definately itching to go junking.I did go to a ladies house and find a few little treasures will share in a few days...Did put out some spring decor,thought I'd share a few pics..
 Been creating a few goodies for swaps and friends.Now that my creativity is back I have a million ideas in my head.Just getting them out fast enough.Will have to get the notebook out and start a list..smile..
Hubby got the new results back for his upper back and neck.They found damage to the neck and another part of the spine in addition to the first results.I couldn't understand all the terms and such the dr said but I did look at the pictures and ask the questions I needed to know.Like when he was paralyzed for 3 weeks why that happened?He will be getting some sort of injections to burn? kill? the nerves and hopefully this will give some relief from pain it sounds like it will be a ongoing thing but the dr said if he does surgery hubby will probly be worse off than he is now.The hardest part is hubby needs to slow down and have patience like not moving a 200 lb item by himself and waiting for help.He has always pushed like a bull and got things done on his own so this will be hard for him...The good news is we won't have to go into the city so much now as the new dr is closer..I'm still amazed at how people and things are so differnt in the city.I'll take small town life any day.Well girls I'm taking a lazy day today.Want to catch up on some of my shows and some reading.Enjoy your weekend!~Amy
