Hey~~

just wanted to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas.

Be safe when traveling, if in car pull over and get out and walk/stretch and be sure to take extra pillows with you to help get comfy. If flying, be sure to sit in isle seat this way you can stand up when needed.

Sorry I haven't been on lately, we had a small ice/snow storm and had about an inch of snow on top of ice. I fell twice getting in drivers seat (two different cars) all within 30 minutes of each other. I had right leg in car and left leg slipped hitting my lower back on the corner of the car seat and have been using ice packs/heating pad and taking ibuprofen. Guess it's lucky the car seats were soft on the corner where I hit my lower back.

Merry Christmas To All~~God Bless

Joy, I'm new to the board, but hope you will accept these Christmas wishes from me. I live in Texas and we might get up to 5 inches of snow tomorrow on top of ice. Dreading going out wednesday, but have a very important doctor's appt. Got my fingers crossed that weather isn't as bad as tv says it might be and for once the idiots who run our apartment complex do something about the ice/snow. Guess I got spoiled living all those years in Indiana where people actually know how to handle snow!!! lol. Merry Christmas and take care of yourself.
