It's supposed to break 90F again today, so I'm wearing an aloha shirt. So comfortable in hot weather!

Anyone good with a back rub? I have a terrible knot in the back of my left shoulder that I can't get rid of. It's stiff and it aches. I can't figure out what I did to start it.

When I lived in NJ i was a certified Masseuse. But typicaly most people have most the back pain from beds that sink in at parts and other major issue is picking up with back instead of knees.

Thanks, I'll have to keep that in mind ... I'm doing the picking up and carrying while Mr.'s recovering from his appendectomy. I don't think it's the bed---I hope not, 'cause it's only about a year old.

It's weird, because I rarely get lower back pain. The upper back/shoulders/neck are my hot spots. I hope crochet isn't the culprit, because I'm not about to stop crocheting!

Got an email update from Valerie par Hill this morning. This paragraph was the most interesting-

For those of you that love a sneak peek, join me at QVC 7am tomorrow (Wednesday July 17th) for a Special CIJ Preview Edition of Mornings Made Easy. I'll have our brand new Christmas in July Fresh Balsam Wreath designs for you to choose from. You'll be able to place your order tomorrow (before the weekend) and guarantee availability for the delivery week you want.

So it looks like QVC is going to try and steal some of HSN's thunder tomorrow.

Good morning everyone. Hope you all are having a great Tuesday so far. It is still unseasonably cool here, and we have rain for the third straight day! This is wonderful, but the 90s will be back by this weekend.

Speaking of the weekend, I may go see the Conjuring with my brother. It is getting pretty good reviews. It claims to be based on a "true story," and I'm guessing it's about 4% rooted in true events, and 96% Hollywood. But hey, for the pay day the real family is getting for telling "their story," they are going to be doing alright. For that kind of pay day, my house can be as haunted as you want or need it to be, if you know what I'm saying. In fact, Made, maybe that's our ticket! Instead of trying for the lottery, all of us come up with some great story, pick one of us here on MMC to be the family that "experienced it," sell the rights, and we'll have that Lear in no time, on our way to Santa Claus, Indiana!

Y'all have a great Tuesday!

Hey good on them for trying to steal some thunder. Of course if you look at the schedule from HSN it would not be that hard to do in the first place lol. Always make my own wreath but this year was thinking about ordering one from them.

They took an X-ray and think there may be a lung infection going on from what they see. I feel like every time I go in they tell me something different. So now the doctor wants me to wean her off the steroids and she has already started another antibiotic. If she doesn't improve with this then the next step will be an echocardiogram. I feel so bad for her, I hope they figure out whats wrong with her soon. Anyway, my husband came in from work late and just finished up his dinner. I made a beef and broccoli stir fry tonight for the first time. They all loved it, I will definitely be making it again. I'm going to clean up the kitchen now and then finally settle down to read for a while.
