Day One Hundred Forty-Seven

Ugh. I hurt my back.

It happened like two days ago from my work out DVD. I wasn't hurting until I woke up the next morning and noticed some good pain in my lower back, mostly on the left side. Then today it hurt the same and a bit more in the middle left part of my back. Ugh! It sucked at work because I sit all day usually with my back nice and straight, and I also couldn't bend over much to pick up anything if I needed to.

So yeah, I worked out for ten minutes this morning before my sister Shannon saved me with a phone call. I guess I'll have to see how I feel tomorrow morning before I work out again! I will be going on an extra long walk because Dexter has gotten a bit insane since I worked three days in a row.

Hey! I got my Christmas cards! Check this out:

(I didn't know how to actually take the nice picture from Shutterfly. How did you all do that?)

I was thinking of including a little "What We've Been Up To" message along with the card, but I'm not sure. Is that a good idea? I don't even know what I would say!

Hey, it's Brandon & Chantal. We still live in Hawaii. Brandon deployed to Iraq this summer. Chantal keeps doing her thing. Merry Christmas!

Have any of you done this? Any suggestions?

I'm gonna get back to catching up on my DVR, then it's a hot bath to relax my back, and late into the night reading my latest book!


  1. Ugh back pain is no joke!! I hope you feel better :)

    I love your Christmas cards! How did you get your cat to sit still?? In ours we were holding the cats, but its obvious they were trying to run for the hills!!!

  2. I was going to suggest a hot bath for your back! Great minds... =)

    Oh, to take the picture from Shutterfly you can A) drag the photo from the webpage to your desktop or B) press command+shift+4 to take a screen shot on your Mac. I can't believe you didn't know that before!

    I can't decide if I want to include a "What We've Been up To" message with my card either... Most of the people I send cards to I'm friends with on facebook... I'm not sure if a message is required. Hmmm.

  3. Hahaha.. I liked the message you came up with. :P

    The Christmas Cards look great!! Hope your back starts feeling better soon :)

  4. Your xmas card is fantastic! I usually forgo the mini messages just because the people I usually send them to already know what's going on in our life.
