So when we were at Leadership Rhonda and I shared a room, she is a fun roomate and even though we would try to get to sleep before midnight it never happened, heck we would be playing Words with Friends back and forth with each other, and laughing and being all silly.
Well the first few nights we were like ugh these pillows are rock hard. So after the third night my neck was killing me. I had commented about the pillows to a demonstrator in the elevator and she said hers were nice and soft so then I thought huh could we ask for different pillows? So that day I called the service number and asked and they said sure did I want foam or feathers, so we picked feathers, and it was much better, but after three nights of sleeping on a brick my neck was in bad shape, fast forward a few days and I get home to lots of paper to cut and lots of computer work, and that means mouse work with my right arm, so today I got up and could barely move my head, so I was back and forth with a heating pad and frozen corn on my neck all day. It still sends shooting pains if I move it wrong, I hope it is better tomorrow.
So today while I stamped I might have looked like I was trying to be fashionable with a scarf on my neck but it actually was tied around the heating pad so I could work. If I went too far away from the plug in I had to unplug myself and put the plug in in my pocket. Ha! Notice I figured out I could take a picture of myself with my cell phone…and I was trying to not get my chicken neck…ha! Speaking of cell phone I am not loving my Samsung as much as I loved my Droid, it is not loud enough and I have trouble hearing with it and it is turned up as loud as it will go. I think I am passed the exchange date so I believe I am stuck with it.
I wanted to show a few of my favorite swaps from Leadership.

My sweet friend Barbara Lash gave me some sweets!
This card makes me very "angry" and it is from Jennifer Turoff
So I am doing pretty good in regards to watching what I eat. I have not lost anything yet, but they say only weigh yourself once a week and on the same day and time, right MAMMa? Oh and I keep saying this in my head….quoting MAMMa "We eat to live, we don't live to eat"
I'll share more swaps another day, I need to get my butt to bed.
Have an awesome Thursday and thanks for stopping in.

Sorry to hear about your neck! I can totally relate as I have Cervical (that means neck lol) Degenerative Disc Disease. It actually not even a disease. But I'm often in pain after or while I stamp! I have to sleep in a cervical collar (like for whiplash) and I use an orthopedic pillow too.
Say Hi to the girls for me! 🙂

Well…if you are what you eat…..I want to eat a skinny person!!!!
I can't believe I haven't read your blog for almost 2 weeks. I've been out of town myself. Looks like lots happened while I was away, including Fiji's first egg, leadership and regionals. Looks like you had a great time, ending up with a pain in the neck! I love my Swedish neck pillow from Ikea. I'm a side and tummy sleeper and it is the best. Loved all your pics from San Antonio. I remember the River Walk from my day pass from basic training at Lackland. Pretty place. Glad you're home safe!
Ouch! I hope your neck is feeling better soon! I can totally relate to the heating pad around your neck. Years ago I hurt my tailbone while tobogganing. The only way I could function was with the heating pad tucked into the back of my jeans. I had three extension cords connected so I could walk all around the first floor and keep up with my little kids. It seems so funny now, but it sure didn't at the time.
Thanks for posting my card, Diana, it made my day!
