Well let me tell you about my week so far.
It started last Monday when I took my MIL shopping for a outfit for a wedding after several jpousrs and numerous dress shops she found something she liked but wanted to go home and think about it before she brought it. Guess what yesterday I was doing something down in that area of our local town The outfit she wanted has all sold out. I told her it would happen but did she listen NO.
Now on to Tuesday well my daughter and her boyfriend have moved home which is not a problem, but I choose to do the washing [I love to do the washing one thing I can still do with the fibro] so I washed most of the day Tuesday. Because of where we live I put all the clothes on the line outside. Great just a LOT of washing as they had only just moved home.
Wednesday well Wednesday morning our youngest son rang Can you help me muster[round up] cattle to0 sell today, so out I go to help again something I love I grew up on a cattle station and we had about 1,000 head of cattle. So out we go he is late arriving so my DH and I start to get them in. Fine until one decides tyo run away, we had no horses or cattle dogs with us as they are quite cattle [Sure] After about and hours and walking miles we get them in with the help of my toy dog who thinks she is a lot bigger.
So then we go to the sale to see them sold, great we run into friends. My week has been fine yes I am stiff and in a little pain.
Thursday morning we get up at dawn ready to leave at 7am to go on a all day bus trip [free because of where we volenteer]
It was great friends also others from places newarby that are also in the same type of thing, but the getting in and out of the bus was not so great but we saw a lot off different things. We had wonderful meals all free, drinks, ice cream even some of the group went on go carts. By trhis time I was very sore and tired so no thanks for me. We even went to a animal hospital where they treat native animals that get injured [you may off heard of Steve Irwin the croc hunter] so that was really informative had nothing to do with what we do but still nice. Then back to let peope off and go home we arrived back where we started at 7pm. EXHUSTED.
Friday morning up to get ready for our church group we help run, then off to see my Dad and home again by 5pm.
So far you get what my wek has been like but it still isn't finished yet.
Saturday Well I am at work now we only do this twice a month Saturdays at the Woodworks Miuseum and information centre.
Tonight after work we go home have a shower then off to our oldest sons engagment party until he hopes around 1am.
Sunday morning its off to church at 8am, home to get changed then out to sell some more cattle whils cattle prices are so high. Then off we go to our daughters birthday BBQ then home for some much needed sleep.
Then next week will start, not so very long ago just thinking about this would off had me in tears but all I am is stiff and sore yes the pain gets bad well bad for what I am suffering now. My DD tells me I am 1,000 percent better then I was 4 years ago when I never left the house and the family never saw me.
I understand how bad it gets and how much it hurts but too see the expression on my DS's face when I show up to help, or how much my DH enjoys having me with when he does things makes all the pain and tiredness worth it all.
