It Was Ugly and So Was I

I'm not sure what it is about this time of year,
 but it seems I always come down with something.  

Last year...

Swine flu. 

Never confirmed, but 95% sure.  
I'd never been so sick.  
It was ugly and so was I.
  I didn't go to work for a whole week.  

Ha! How convenient that I took 
this week as a vacation week! 
 I thought I'd cheated the fates.  
I thought I was home-free.  
No sick 4 me this year!!!


 It's my back.  Oh, my aching back.

  Not just...  "ouch, my back hurts",
 more like 

"oh my gosh, I may never walk again!" 

But Gracie's taking care of me, so I'll be fine.


  1. I just about always get sick before Christmas, just a little early this year, think it must have to do with recirculated air and everybody's germs.

    Had thought it was the dusty Christmas tree, LOL!

    Sorry you are sick :( You look pretty darn good though!

  2. OUCHIE! Is it time to visit the Chiropractor?

  3. Oh Crap! I have back pain and it is just that; PAINFUL!!!!
    some days I feel as if I may never walk again, or at least without saying 'ouch' every few steps...
    take good care of yourself; and you're not ugly! beautiful!

  4. Hope you feel better soon Bobbi... I know Gracie will take good care of you!... xoxo Julie Marie

  5. Good thing you have Gracie there to take care of you. YOu better get to the back DR, he works wonders with my mom!!


  6. Hi Bobbi, thanks so much for stopping by my blog. Gracie is adorable! So sorry your back is hurting. I agree with the other comments - you look really good, and way too young to be a Grammy!

  7. I am so sorry Bobbi - that's terrible while you are on vacation. There's nothing much better than puppy dog kisses/snuggles to make us feel better. Gracie, take good care of mommy.

  8. oh no! how could this happen on a vacation week? I hope your back feels better soon so you can enjoy your days! maybe a massage?


  9. Oh my gosh, what happened? Did you pull your back, did it go out, it or are you coming down with something? I'm so sorry, and right on your vacation!! Can you change it to sick leave? Are you able to get around? Take meds, a heating pad! We have been sick for over two months now and Phil was diagnosed with a bacterial infection today, we've both had two rounds of anti-biotics, DIL and grandbaby both on ant-biotics as well! Everyone in town is sick!!

  10. It's good that you have a wonderful nurse dog - take care of yourself and I hope you feel better soon.


  11. Oh we are so sorry a aching back will make your feel rotten all over. Were you lifting something or did it just happen. Sometimes I never know what I did when my acts up.

    Feel better soon,
    Madi and Mom

  12. Awe, thanks everyone. I wasn't really doing anything, just sitting at the office doing work on the computer and suddenly I noticed my back was hurting. Then it just kept getting worse... today it's a tad bit better. At least I can walk!
    Ginny> So sorry you and Phil have been sick for so long, will keep you guys in my prayers.
    I think everything I've 'tried' for my back has just made it worse. Usually the inversion table helps. But nope. Then I have a message chair that also usually helps. Nope. Just made it worse.

  13. Ouchie! Sore back is no fun! Feel better soon!

  14. Ice pack for ten minutes, then heat for ten, repeat if necessary. Works for us. Hope you get some comfort soon and with the help of Gracie, looks like sooner than later!
    Take care.

  15. Oh NO! Physical Therapy is my solution for any body problems. I love the results of PT. However, I am soo, sooo sorry for you being sick on vacation time. I am praying that doesn't happen to our family during our Christmas break.

  16. Hey! A little late reading this..but hope you are feeling better. Mom is down for the count with the flu of some sort, and can barely squeek out words at this point, and dad is trying to figure out what to do with his persistent aching back! Oh my oh my.

    Hugs and snaggle-tooth kisses,
    Sierra Rose

  17. Oh no! I hope you are feeling better!
