Monday, I woke up with the most HORRENDOUS back pain! Bad enough, it was a Monday morning, but I had never, EVER had this kind of pain, before in my back.
Tuesday, as I couldn't take it any longer, went to visit my family doctor. Sprained back, he tells me, and that I need plenty of rest and he prescribes medication. Does he REALIZE that Barb Honey (a Janiac friend) and her DH (dear husband) are coming over, for a visit on Wednesday??!? And that I have to travel for a business meeting, on Friday?!?
At the end of my visit with the doctor, he casually tells me that sometimes it takes up to 3 months to fix a pulled muscle. WHAT?!??!?! THREE MONTHS?!?! Dear God!....
Anyhow, I took the day off Wednesday and with pain killers in my bod, I met Barb and her DH! What a WONDERFUL visit!!!! And they came bearing gifts, too! *VBG*
The cutest little bag... hand made by Barb Honey - WHAT A TREAT!!!! And Barb had remembered that I LOVE hearts!!! *VBG*
Here's a shot of the "inside" of the bag - it's got names from Canadian cities. Barb even fussy cut the inside fabric, to make sure that St. John was there! *grin*
Here's a closeup of the cute little charm, she added on, as a zipper pull! I only noticed this cute detail AFTER she and her DH had left! *s*
She even thought to add a few other "gifties" WITHIN the bag!!! *grin*
And my friend Barb ALSO brought along her EQ 5 program, with 3 books!!! She had upgraded and was kind enough to pass THIS onto me! Spoiled, or what, eh?!?? *VBG*
All in all, we had a WONDERFUL time together!!! Really enjoyed their company - it felt like I had known them for years! *grin*
Thanks Barb (& DH)!!! As they plan to move near me soon, I hope this will be one of many "get togethers"!
P.S. Did you notice that I didn't have a picture of Barb and I?!??! I could have kicked my own butt!!!! AFTER they left, I glanced at my camera.... sitting there.
I had meant to ask Barb's DH to take our picture, but COMPLETELY forgot!!!
Next time, eh Barb? *grin*
