My back has been able to withstand sitting more so my quality of life has improved. For months all I could do was sit up for short periods of time, perhaps 30 minutes. I was lying flat on my back the rest of the time or standing up. My back pain has slowly improved so I am going to try a 6 hour road trip.

I love traveling. If I had my way, I would go on an over night road trip at least once a month. However, when my back was hurting, just driving to pick my son up from school would be enough to have my hurting for awhile. I hope the road trip to Washington DC will help strengthen my back more.
I figure the worst thing that can happen is I will be lying down in the hotel room while my Mom, son and other family members are wandering around Washington DC having fun. I am so excited to be getting out of my town!
Wish me, and my back, luck on this trip! I will be picking the winner of the Dale and Thomas Popcorn giveaway before I leave. I hope you all have something to look forward to!
