TWENTY FOUR HOURS

I pulled my back. (again)
I called Steve to complain.
(for no other reason)
15 minutes later he surprised me with a heating pad AND chocolate.
He left work early to do that.
(something he never does)
Gestures of love make my world go round.
Tonight I took the girls to their basketball game.  I came across THIS car.  It baffles me that people have the audacity to take up TWO parking spots.  Why?
(don't answer that)
 My heart was warmed today as a friend took time out to visit little Ben and then send me a snapshot of his grave.  Gestures of love make my world go round.
(did I already say that?)
Dinner time was just Stevie and I.  The other three were in three different directions.  I made her a most delicious salad and then attempted to reach for a glass so that I could give her some milk.  My clumsy hand dropped the glass right on top of her plate causing both the glass and plate to shatter.
Thank goodness all turned out fine.  She was very forgiving and thankfully there was enough food to make her a duplicate salad.  She loves me, she loves me more.
And THAT, my friends, have been my last 24 hours.
Over and OUT!

Ouch!! Backs are so tricky to fix too. Hmm rest sounds like a good idea but its easier said than done.

your parking pic reminded me of a cartoon my son liked here http://xkcd.com/562/
I don't mean to take up two spots, but sometimes (often!) I park crooked. I thought the cartoon was funny. But then I have 4 enginerds in my life!
