Delivering Avon all morning in the rain wasn't a fun way to start off the week. I've thought all morning if this gives me a cold I'm sure gonna be mad because I sure haven't made any money. I picked up returns at 2 stops so that knocked any profit right out the window.
When I got home after slushing around in the rain and cool 60 degree temps, I hit the couch and did not do a thing all evening.
It's just been that kind of day and we haven't had one of those in quite awhile !!!!

As I sit here writing this at 9:30 I hear thunder and hear more hard rain,we may get that flood after all.
I've been researching joint pain supplements on line tonight and now am totally confused.
The glucosamine the doctor told me to take doesn't seem to be enough.
Some of the ones I've researched like Flexceril , Flexcin CM8 , Nutraflex, all look like they might be worth a try but aren't for sale locally and are very expensive to order.
I am trying to take it easier especially in the evenings to see if that will stop the pain at night when I lay down. It's funny that my knees or hips don't hurt much during the day but when I lay down and they should relax the pain flares up,especially in my hips.
I am going to try getting up earlier and getting my baking done in the early morning so in the evenings I can stay off my feet more to see if this helps. With all the rest I've had today tomorrow is a good day to start a new routine.
Thanking God for the thirst quenching rain and the blessings of today.
Good Night and God Bless.

Hi. I do enjoy reading about your days. I used to sell Avon, to me it was more of a hassle than it was worth. I have hip problems as well. Have you tried sleepign with a pillow between your knees? THis was recommended to me by my chiro, I believe. Anyway, it helps keep your hips in alignement. I cannot sleep with out one now. Helps me alot. Hope you find some relief. It's not fun.

Hi Marilyn, I'm home --and trying to catch back up with blog comments. l did catch up on your blog. Looks like your market day turned out great.... I love 'old-timey' days!!!!!

Sorry to hear that you are still having trouble with your legs/knees/hips... After my knee surgery, I started having leg pain at nights... I added Vit E, potassium, calcium (more than I had been taking) --and started drinking 8-10 glasses of water each day... That all helped me so much. Don't know if it will help you--but you might want to try.

We got almost NO rain from this past weekend system.. We had clouds for two days --and a tiny bit of drizzle. That's ALL. But--it's cook outside now---so I love it. We even had a fire in the fireplace last night. Loved it.

Hope you are doing okay--other than the pain.
