Nothing like painting furniture outside in 105 degree heat!

My friend Cheri and me have been talking about spray painting quite a few items we both own that have needed it for about two years when do we finally decide to do it?  At 10:00 in the morning on a day that hit 105 degrees!

I have to say I am please with how the chair came out...but we both almost got sunstroke!  lol
This is the time of year those in central and south Arizona hate!  Summer is upon up and so we go inside and find all those projects that need to be done indoors.  Note to self...the other chair gets painted this fall!  :)

So here is the before photo.....

 During.... yes we had to pull it into the shade to dry....the heat was too much for the paint to set!

And the finished product!  Ta-Da!

Spray paint has come a LONG way in the last 10 easy to use now...and such a nice finish...

Now If I can find a way to paint the other one and the little table that goes in between before fall....I heat it is to cool down to 90 degrees thsi next week!  I might just try this again in our "cooler" weather Monday....

We drank water and Gatorade like crazy and then went to Culver's and had a bite to eat....then she went home and we both took a 2 hour nap! The heat just zaps you..We have both lived here the majority of our lives, we knew better....but we were!

And please remember no matter where you live in the summer....

Thanks for stopping by...

Free At Last!

I am sorry I have been gone so long and had this blog shut down.  But it was needed for awhile.

I decided it was time to come back and let you know my wonderful news!

As most of you know I have suffered with a lot of pain since 1994 and it has not gotten any better except for some of the time I took biologics for my RA.

Nothing seemed to work for my Fibromyalgia.  I have recently taken some bad falls and have hurt myself badly...It seems that because of the pain I am not lifting my feet correctly and I have basically tripped twice now.  I have damaged the Sacral nerves on my left side, and it is excruciating!  Basically pain pills and a tens unit was all that helped.

So after being pretty disillusioned and kicked out of a practice where I had been a patient for over 20 years, I finally decided to try a pain clinic.

I went to a place called Arizona Pain.  I saw a doctor who listened and asked questions and came to a conclusion that I need three different meds. A pain patch that gives me a small dose of a narcotic every hour, a Gabapetin pill for the Fibro and a new Ibuprofen pill wrapped in fomotodine.
It too about a week, but one morning I woke up, took my meds and an hour later I was PAIN FREE!

Pain free...for the first time in 25+ years.  I figured it was just a really good day, even though I had never had one like it...and every day since has been the same...I have energy, I did the grocery shopping today, I haven't done that in years without it exhausting me and putting me in bed with pain.
On Mother's Day I even RAN for about 20 feet!  Just to see if I was amazing, my son Bryan and I had such a laugh over it!

I am hopeful that this is my life from here on in...I might have gotten to this point at 63...but whatever time I have left will be wonderful!

My hopes:
Start walking in the pool here and get some weight off.
Go see my friend in Colorado and ride a horse!
Be involved with life again!

I am so glad to be back here, on my sweet blog and hopefully some of my friends are still around...
