My Vacation So Far

Well, flying was terrible and wonderful. It was terrible because my back was killing me but wonderful because it took half a day to get to my in-laws house instead of a three day drive.

We haven’t done much yet for three reasons:

  1. It was rainy, which was a nice change for us after coming from dry west Texas.
  2. We we exhausted.
  3. I forgot most of my medication.

Number one had the effect of making spectacular photo ops. I got a really cool shot of a wet spider Web.

Two meant we went to bed early.

Number three started a stressful escapade that ended with a pharmacy here giving me a small amount of the nerve medicine. I’m SOL on the muscle relaxers but I did have a few with me so I’ll use them when I’m desperate.
We’re going to Philadelphia for a couple of days soon. I’ll be taking thousands of pictures there. We’re going to the aquarium and the zoo. I hope to find tacky souvenirs for my kids.

We are also going to a local place with waterfalls. From what I understand, there are multiple levels. Pictures will be forthcoming.

I haven’t written anything but I did draw a decent dragon. I’m not posting a photo of it! Well, not until I’m completely finished.

I’ll post another update when I can.



  1. Kristi, although I don’t know firsthand what you’re going through with your back, I definitely know secondhand. My husband has slip disks in his back. He’s on medication like you are. I asked him if there were any on-the-counter meds you could use. He said ibuprofen will help a little. I take three (3) Aleve every night for Restless Leg Syndrome. If I can take three, you should be able to also. Aleve lasts twelve hours.

    Anyway, just trying to help you enjoy your vacation a little more. ❤

    1. I can’t take Aleve or Advil. The surgeon said anti-inflammatory meds will interfere with the healing of the fusion. Which makes me very sad. I did manage to get my prescriptions shipped here though. Assuming they come on time, it should all be business as usual soon.
