Good morning all. Been AWOL ...lol Hubby had to come to Baltimore for a 2 day seminar...totally paid for with a queen size bed. So I got invited. He and I have not been away for a weekend without. at least one of our 5 kids since 1996... last century...lol He has been away a couple of times alone and me ...1 night for a work conference 4 years ago. This is well overdue! So we were invited to extend our 3 day to a 6 day if we ride to DC to stay with my hubby’s cousin who is really my best friend.  The kids are fine and told us to go they‘re fine!  I have been in pain and had to sleep for a few hours today but hubby was ay his seminar so it was fine. I feel so bad...when we were younger and before all this happened to me we walked all over the cities we were in and sightseeing was our thing. Even riding around aimless in our car but that even hurts. We had a 90 min drive here with 2 stops so I could stretch. I brought 2pillows one for back and 1 for butt for shock absorption.  It worked pretty good. Now we have 90 mins to DC tomorrow ..I should be five but our cuzw purchased tickets for a twilight cruise on the Potomac. Saturday evening. She has all the same ailments as I do and said its a nice boat, very smooth buy I’m worried.  Have any of you done anything like this? Did it effect you? I’m worried because the next afternoon ill have the 3hr ride home. I can’t live in a box though...right? If I have to stay in bed foe a day when I get home I guess it’ll be worth it! I just pray there’s not a fibromyalgia flare up coming. I get this AWFUL,sickening  fatigue feeling right in my gut before I get them . The feeling usually presents a day or two before I get one. But sometimes it just goes away. So praying I get through today-Sunday without ruining everyone else’s plans.  I hate when I do that.I hope all you good people are well and hope you enjoy your weekend.  Ill be around! :)

    • i am so sorry to hear about your ailments.  i have osteoarthritis and if i am on my feet all the time the pain spreads from my feet then moves upwards until the pain is all up my legs, my back and my arms.  i use to take strong pain killers but that irritated my hernia and did not work in the end. so i finally decided to rest all day if need be it was the only way for me to cope.  i have not stopped doing things but i am more cautious and push myself at times to test my ability or lack of it.  enjoy yourself when u can and rest when u must listen to your body and try not to be afraid to have fun.  heartheartestatic

    • Is the boat by chance the Dandy?  I have been on that boat several time and the food is pretty good.  I hope you have fun!  I LOVE Baltimore.  I lived in Maryland most of my life and really enjoyed going up there to the Aquarium, the Children’s Museum, etc.
