Moving is the worst!

Jan 12, 2016 12:47 PM

Well last couple of days I have had to go 5 hours into the next state to help my adoptive mom move and still moving, I am resting at the moment, but I sure paid for it last night! My whole body hurt and my back! Oh my back! I was the only one helping her move! But today I had a notion to call movers! But they won't be her till late around 4, so I guess I will get back with it and make the heating pad my best friend tonight!

It's awful. I hope u have some pain meds near by. That may help too even if they over the counter.. And yes ricse sock heat pad all that. And when the movers come u can start moving yourself to a chair. Ha..lol

If u can soak in a tub or warm shower too. I know day after cooking my body hurts but specially my hands. Heat works however u can get it.

I was given the best gift anyone can given ( material wise) a spa with jets you can put in a tub! That will also come in handy! 2 more hours before movers are here!

New, yes I was smart and brought my pain med and my muscle relaxers! Between the those and the heating pad it helped but my feet were a different story, I have braces on both of my ankle's. Well my break is up! Gotta clean the bathroom and then onto packing up the kitchen!

Oh no..in sorry for u and your feet.. Be careful of course don't over do it to much more. I would hate for unto down for tonlomg once your done ..I know your gonna need a few days afterwards. I'm glad u have your meds. Don't forget to eat. And I'm so jealous u have s spa. Your feet are gonna love you once u r able to relax and use it.. Ha..

When u can keep your feet warm n up high like with pillows or something for few hours. Always helps me as well. Love those types of tubs. I miss my pool therapy. Nice warm water mmmmm!!! I can only take showers in the chair meant for handicapped at moment, I do miss my hot steaming whole bathroom baths I used to take. Take care.

Moparmom, I oppose the movers came in and have finished up for you. Maybe you can rest and get a good night's sleep, after a relaxing bath. Hugs & prayers you'll rest well tonight. πŸ˜·πŸ™πŸŒΌ

MoparMom I hate moving you never realize how much junk you have until you have to start packing it up. Bless you for helping your Mom move, please be careful and don't over do. Let the movers do all the heavy lifting for you. I am soo jealous of your tub spa, I only have a shower and shower chair. Be sure and enjoy it tonight, just don't fall asleep during using it. Hope it helps with your pain so that you can get a Good nights rest without too much pain. Be praying for you and sending you hugs.

Well, the mover's showed up a hour and half late and then starting yelling at me because the whole house was not packed! Excuse me but I hired 2Packer and 2 mover's and only 3 people showed up, so needless to say I will never use that same company again, because I had to do twice as much work now. I am finally on my way home and its 12:30 and have a 5 hour drive home! Thank God hubby is driving! Have a blessed night all pray that it's pain free!

Hubby and I were really tired and neither one of us could stay awake. So we pulled off to a lite exit and parked where their was a lot of trucker's and leaned our seats back and went to sleep. I can't wait till we get home, my memory foam bed is calling my name lol, sleeping in a car is not easy lol!!
