Not Quite Myself

I haven't been around much lately and I'm sorry. I've been busy and I'm having trouble with my knees, especially at night. Sometimes it's difficult to walk or stand for long periods of time. I'm trying not to let it get to me and still do what I need to do. I'm seeing a doctor next week and hope to find out what is going on. I'm not worried, I trust that God will take of me.

I just didn't want you all to think I disappeared and forgotten about you. I'll try to visit but my energy and creativity levels are at a low. I'm doing okay, just a bit tired at time.

On a totally separate subject, Tom's uncle sent him this link and I thought it was really neat. Tom always says, "Life's a musical." This proves it.

it seems like all the bloggers are in a blogging funk - myself included. i keep meaning to email you too but never seem to get around to emailing much either. i blame it on the intense heat this summer. do you ever find yourself sitting around at night just watching the weather channel for fun? no? just me then?

aww sorry to read that your knees are bothering you :(

Summer is always notorious for quietness around the blogosphere.

Dawn said...

That is such fun! I would love to have been there.

I am so sorry about your knees - I sure hope the doc can help you.

Have a great 4th - do you have fireworks close by?

Fun video and I love Tom's quote. Life IS a musical!

I'm sorry you're not feeling well. Rest up and feel better!!

Enjoy the 4th of July weekend! :)

I'm sorry you're not up to par these days. Good luck at the doctor, please let us know the outcome.

I saw this video a few weeks back and loved it. I could watch it over and over again!

I've been in a blogging rut lately myself...just not interested nor have I had the time.

I am so sorry about your knees. Praying that the doctors, through Godly wisdom, know exactly how to give you relief.

I have been taking a bit of a break myself and reading only a couple of blogs a day. It has been surprisingly pleasant.

Be blessed Nadine.

So sorry about your knees....no fun and hard to push on through sometimes. I hope the Dr. appt. helps. Take care and rest! Have you tried ice 20 min / heat 20 min/ ice 20 min then rest an hour and do it again.

I hope your knees are not giving you too much of a trouble Nadine and sorry I have not been visiting too. But you know you are very much on my mind always ;D

Happy weekend and Happy 4th July :D

Wow Nadine, that was quite the video! THX for sharing...loved how in unison they all danced.

And I hope your knees heal up quickly!

I've been having knee problems too...I think it's because I've been walking too much. Can someone walk too much really though? Hmm..maybe I don't know what happened...oh well, I'm still young I suppose and can 'try' the ignoring-healing-method. At least I can use that TILL I can't stand it anymore and HAVE TO sit down. This frustrates me to no extent. I hate slowing down!

That video is sooo awesome!

Praying for you.

Hope you are doing better soon! My thoughts and prayers are with you!

Well Nadine I'm praying for your health and for your strength to return.

It's not like you haven't had a very full plate these past few months, my goodness, no wonder your exhausted....

Rest up and breath in the goodness of our Lord.

I am so sorry to hear you've been having trouble with your knees. I know that joint pain is not fun to deal with...I have a "bad knee" so to speak...I injured it when I was a teenager playing softball and had to wear a knee brace for a while. It bothers me on really cold days and wet days. If I am standing or walking for long periods it still swells up. But I've just learned to deal with the pain. If not I wouldn't be able to wear my high heels! :-)

And Emma cries when her knees hurt her...growing pains.

I will pray that you get some answer from the doctor and get some relief!

I so hear ya....plus facebook just seems quicker and easier these days. Thinking of you and hope you're feeling better?

So sorry you've been feeling badly. I hope you are much better soon. I've had a difficult time blogging myself with busy schedules and technical difficulties. I decided to start blogging in a new location http://karenwoodward.blogspot.com/ Stop by when you can!
