yeah  Well we have our local Show this week/weekend and I do not have time for the pain which I know is going to try to take the fun out off this yearly joy for my family. I will start with yesterday Wednesday. At the show yesterday was the junior cattle juding from ages of 6 to 25yrs. Our youngest son went in the first time in 5 years he met up with some off his frinds and their families thes young people are like a big extended family for us we have watched them grow up. We had a great time for the 6 hours we sat there. Our DS won two prizes to make it all the better,
Today Thursday we going go this afternoon to see the fireworks so I go and grab a prime site early with several blankets so our kids 4 adults there partners and all their friends will join us. A great fun time. Then tomorrow we arrive amout 9.30am too spend the whole day watching the show jumping checking out the side shows, all the displays and eating all the food. We have firewoorks again that night.
Saturday now that is my day at the show I arrive around 8.30am to get a good place for our camping chairs for the rodeo we sit and read talk to friends and catch up with the family. We try to get as much room as we can because all our friends know I arrive to get the space ring side so they come and sit with us. And we eat yes one thing about our show is the food several food stand are there every year so they become family favorites. when someone goes to get food they take orders with them. I know our SIL came last year for the first time and he is really looking forward to the Saturday off the show. It will be cold we had our first frost at the show last year and it looks like it will happen again this year. But we all take blankets or sleeping bags too keep warm with.
Some friends just don't understand why we do it. But as our kids tell them if Mum and Dad didn't go we would all worry it is tadition in our family and we have never missed a show cool
So no matter the pain I just go to the car and lie down and cry if I need to or even have a bit of a sleep we will have a wonderful time and the family will have some new memories the grandkids will learn more about what makes the family a unit and I will have great memories and photos to look back on.
I am not going to suffer from anything the next 3 days

getting by

Hi Kathy,

Boy that sounds like so much fun you are going to have. Rodeo and fireworks. What a blast!!!

I am sure that you are going to have a good time. Remember to pace yourself. Take things slowly and enjoy the events. One thing that you said concerns me though. You said that the pain "which I know is going to try to take the fun out of this year joy for my family". Try not to think that way. Be optimistic. Because you have defeated yourself before you even start. I know that the pain is going to try to sneak up on you. And so do you. But keep your healthy good attitude it and beat it at it's own game. You can do this, you will have a great time. And I hope that you tell us all about it. It sounds like such a good social time with friends and family. Great tradition!!!

Hugs, Karen

I am in pain before it even starts even my feet lying in bed feel like I have walked on hot coals they even feel swollen. Not to menstion all the rest of the pain I hate winter. It gets cold and my pain level shy rockets all summer I was fine maybe a twinge when it was going to rain and now it cools off and I am in agony. Its not a flare just my normal winter pain. Oh the worse we can expect from winter is heavey frost. But it still gets very painful

This sounds fantastic!  Think of the fun you will have and ignore the pain as much as possible.  Don't let it spoil your fun.  Don't even THINK you will hurt.....just plan on this being the best!
Have a wonderful time and let us know how things went for you.
