New bag  
Hey guys. So things have been going fairly well. A few days ago I did a trip to Orlando to check out a kayak store. I had a very nice time and love all the kayak and camping gear they have at this place. I went specifically to look for a backpack. I've been wanting a small travel day pack. I love my big Farpoint 40 by Osprey. They do make awesome stuff and I got the Daylite Plus in Eggplant purple there. This will work for our trips and curises to stuff it in the big back then use it when we go on shore excursions to carry small stuff like cameras, snacks or anything else we might need. So even though I had a great time the drive there was very rough on me. I needed the following day to recover from driving stress. Orlando is one of the worst cities if not the worst city in Florida to drive in. I also drove on I4 for the first time which I had been warned about avoiding at all costs if possible. Well this time it was unavoidable. Unlike when I met Peregrine this place was much further north and no way to get there but to go on the interstate. My right arm and shoulder still has not recovered from the time I hurt it back in Dec watering plants and all this has caused my fibro to go off very badly. So the last few days I've either been in a lot of pain or not had any strength or energy to move. It's sucked because my mind wants to go out still and do more fun things but my body just can't. The arm thing has gone on too long and probably I'll have to have it looked at which I'm not happy about. But I have not slept well over a month now because of it.

Other than that things are going well. I game once in a while. I got the first badge on my main account for Weekend hero on Sky Force Reloaded. We've got another cold front coming through again. This won't be good for my physical conditions either. I can't wait for Spring. I hope I can put the plants back out soon. Oh speaking of plants. I got my plants from CZ plants. Two of them and they came in terrible shape. One I think is dead because the growth tip is black. I don't think there's hope for it. It also had no roots. So despite the leaves still having some green it looks bad. The other plant is sick looking but once it makes a new leaf I may be able to save that one at least. Here's hoping. Shame about the other one as it was a rare N. campanulata. But it was an over seas order and I knew there was a risk of this.

So yeah I am gearing up for a trip but I have no set plans for this year. I don't know if I'll even travel this year. I'd like to but I need to save money so I don't know. Perhaps a short cheap trip. But we do have the monster truck show coming up soon for our anniversary. I am very much looking forward to that.

I think you should get your arm looked at if it's been bothering you for a month and is worse than just normal fibro pain.

It's supposed to get cold here again tomorrow. I'm not looking forward to it.

Yeah, I will call the walk in clinic and make an appointment.

Yeah it sucks. Another cold front is coming in.

A monster truck show will be fun!

Bah about your body. I hear you on not being able to go out there and do things you want. It does look like you might need to get it looked at. Bah again!

I hope your cold weather goes away soon. Still enjoying the warmth here but it is not as hot as it was.

I'm very much looking forward to the monster trucks. I can't wait.

Yes I need to schedule an appointment.

I'm very tired of the cold weather. I can't wait for things to start to get back to normal here.

Thanks. I'm very happy with the new backpack. I'll get to use it at the truck show to bring my stuff. Oh man yeah driving through Orlando was tough. Thanks. I'll do my best to nurse the plants back to health.

Glad you got your new bag, btw. One you needed. Though that trip to the big city was a nightmare...just like when I go to the big city here. No, worse!

And also, good luck with that plant. Sorry about the other one.

That's a bummer about the plants. Do they get shipped priority or take weeks to arrive for international mail?
