Checking in...

Hi everyone - thought I should check in cuz I miss you all!  I'm trying a new blogging position - laying on the couch with the laptop propped up against my knees. The back is still healing - I found some exercises today from a book called "Treat your own Back"; well actually is was a couple of Youtube videos that demonstrated the exercises so I'm trying them out.  I've done them twice and already feel that the pain is leaving my legs. Keeping my fingers crossed!

I'm scheduled for acupuncture next Wed. Wish I could have gotten in sooner but he wasn't in at all this week. When I missed a month of work 2 years ago due to a pinched nerve in my shoulder the only thing that helped was acupuncture so I'm eager to try it again.

The good news is (aren't you glad there's good news?) I bought a trailer at the same park we were at before. We're just a short distance from the one we previously owned, in the quiet section. ( used to be quiet:) !!

Here's a few photos from last fall when I looked at it before...and I just realized I've shown you these pics before, however, that was before it belonged to me!  It'll take some work to make it mine but I'm looking forward to that. And Lake Huron is just a few minutes walk away!

Nice big living space with a slide-out section that makes it feel much roomier...

A pull-out couch, ceiling fans, TV, air conditioning... (I likely won't use either the TV or the AC)

The master bedroom has a brand new mattress, never slept on...yet!!

Something I was looking for - a second bedroom with 3 bunks and lots of storage space.
 Dining area...

 Kitchen - full size stove and fridge, built-in microwave, double sink...

Cute shed for my lawn mower, extra chairs, bike etc...

Nice big porch...

The trellis stuff was being used to build a sort of fence, I'm not sure why...they aren't high enough to cover the window of the adjacent trailer so not too sure what the idea was...

You can see one of the trellis fence pieces in the photo below...I'm not going to bother with them - I'd rather just plant some tall grasses if more privacy is needed...

And the lovely bathroom - wow - counter space!! And there is a large shower to the left which we can't see here.
So now you're updated on me...pain is dominating my life at present but I have much to look forward to when this passes!!

This too shall pass, right???


  1. The new digs are lovely! Can't wait to see what you do with it! .... Praying you get some relief from the pain.

  2. Let me know when to show up at your new Summer place....... ;-)
    Hope the acupuncture helps the back problem.

  3. I agree the mobile home looks good. I hope you get some relief for your back soon.

  4. I hope your pain eases. I love the new mobile home!

  5. Hope you get some relief with your back. And the new trailer looks wonderful too! Congrats!

  6. I am so sorry you are suffering like this. Nothing is worse than back pain because it affects every move you make.

  7. I hope your back feels better soon! A hurt back sucks.

    And I'm confused! Are you moving or is this a summer place? And why didn't you select Iowa when looking for a summer place? We're tropical here. A whole 53 today but in the 70s this weekend!!! COME ON DOWN! That is, when your back feels better...

    You bought the trailer! So cute, I can see loads of fun relaxing peaceful times there - with a glass of wine in hand!

  9. Thanks Sarah - I'm faithfully exercising and taking short walks.

  10. You're always welcome Sluggy, and thanks!

  11. Well, you know all about pain, don't you? I was thinking about you and about how hard it must be to be in constant pain.

  12. The trailer is just for summer use, usually from Easter to Thanksgiving, but although this weekend is Easter it's still too risky for the managers to turn on the water - pipes could still freeze :( but I'm hopefuly I'll be able to start going soon!

  13. Definitely a glass of wine...or a nice cold beer, I'm not fussy :) !

  14. I'm happy about your trailer and sorry about your bum. You need some thing to make you smile. I think you will be on the upswing soon.

  15. Oooh, I love it!
    I'm looking forward to seeing what you do with it!
