You guys that have access to the internet during work hours is driving me nuts. I am a trades-man for my work and have no computer all day. I get home from work and log-on here to see pages upon pages of discussions I wish I was able to participate in....nothing like "live" action on here during the work week. I feel like I miss out and it takes me over an hour to "catch up." I still don't understand how you guys get any work done during the day at your jobs, but I envy you. I wish more of you would come on here in the evenings. Just wanted to get that off my chest. Happy posting! [Big Grin]

I know how you feel. But now I'm able to post from either the office or home. I used to work retail, long hard hours, and didn't have much 'puter time back then! So don't worry, I can feel your pain too. [Frown] [Wink]

At least I'm not alone....

You're lucky in that regard Sam, but I would rather be working than going through what you are with your back. How's all that going BTW?

A few times in the past 4 years, my back gave out at work so bad, that I was out of commission for weeks. I had to see a chiropractor, 3 times a week, for 4 months. It was the worst pain I ever had and I could barely walk for the longest time. I wouldn't wish that on my worst enemy(if I had enemies.) Now, I am more careful at work and with sports and just thank God for every day that my back is OK.

Technically, at school, unless it is "education related" we are not supposed to be on the Internet. But I figure I have time at the beginning of the school day and the end of the school day. I'll say I'm doing research or something.

I'm usually on after work. I had to go to the nightshift for about a year to get some things straightened out and I was always on here at like 2am. BTW Sam hope your back is getting better. I was out for about 4 weeks after throwing mine out once but I know it's nothing compared to what your going through. The time off felt good for about 2 weeks then I was climbing the walls lol. I went to a chiropractor with mine but it seemed like they would do just enough each time to make you have to come back the next time although my insurance did cover it. I actually felt good after going but if I ever missed an appointment I could definitely tell it. I think chiropractors do some good but I think alot of it was in my mind. It hurt worse than any knee injury, wisdom tooth, kidney stone, etc. than I'd ever had.......

My chiro never bothered to tell me that my insurance had stopped paying. So I had a huge bill. But I will say that it helped my back. Back problems suck, so I hope yours is better, Sammy.

I'm lucky that chiro does work on me too and I have insurance. I don't know what I would do without either.

That's good news Sam. You can always get work, but you can't get another back. Best of luck finding work.

We should start a club.....I too have chronic back problems...goes out once or twice a year and varies in severity. I've done it all....chiro, physio, etc. I'm on a mission to follow a back exercise routine to help with strengthening. I have a two year old son, and I'll be darned if I have to sit and watch him play...ain't happening. Good luck to all...see yas in the old age home [Big Grin]

Sorry 80's...to get back on track, I'm right there with you. For the most part, I'm a 9 to 5er, so I only get small chunks of time in the evening....I check most every evening though...and do my best to respond or post.

I hear ya Kev....don't get me wrong, there's still plenty of great folks on here in the evening. It just seems that the daytimers rarely come on in the evening and I miss talking to them too.

I'm lucky I can surf during work based around the times of a morning break, lunch and an afternoon break. Sometimes it can get too crazy and I won't have time. And count me in the bad back club. It comes and goes with me, and I have to wear a brace sometimes.

When I was in the car wreck 4 years ago...I had whiplash really bad-I never knew what that actually was, until I experienced it, and I ended up going to a chiropractor for awhile-so I understand the back stuff too. My husband has 4 herniated discs in his back...the first time he did it...he was lifting a sofa with dual recliners on both sides-up a flight of steps, and the guy helping him dropped his side and it ripped everything out in his back...he had to go through major physical therapy for it. Then when we were in the wreck...we were hit from behind and then on the left(driver's side)....and it made his back worse then...he should have surgery...but he's scared of what could happen to him...so he just works past it, we have a hot tub...and we are in it alot at night, it really helps. I highly recommend them.

I am on here off and on throughout the day.

This morning my friend met me at 8am and we drove about 20 minutes to a state park to cut hemlock branches at her family's cabin, then I came home and spent an hour decorating more stuff. This past weekend I had 3 couples here, but I worked all day yesterday to get all the laundry done, and all the cleaning.

I ended up going shopping today, and then to lunch with my son and mother, and then I came home and made bows for an hour and put them all through my garland. I'll put some pictures on here of my Christmas decorations...so everyone can understand how much work it really is. But, like this weekend the one couple that stayed here had never been to a B & B ever.

I made a reservation today for another wedding couple for Dec. 6th. I cooked supper for my family. I have a girl who stays with us during the week while she is training people at her job. I watched Dancing with the Stars- the Finals.

Every day...I am always doing something in between being on here. I hope people don't really think I sit here all day. But, I am able to check things out off and on.

But...I have always thought that more goes on at night around here than during the day.

Same here, the time difference is frustrating sometimes. Especially since I only get the chance to post from work (during lunch break or when I come in too early).

Sheez buffalo-girl, that really sucks. I can't believe he didn't even have the decency to respond.

For what it's worth, good luck on finding another job and (hopefully) a better boss.

Wow, I am sorry to hear about all the trouble your going through buffalo-girl.

When my husband hurt his back the 1st time, he was working when he did it...and they tried to be jerks to him about it, so we filed a claim against his employer with the EEOC, and we sued them. I did all the paper work for it...and we won. There was alot to it, and alot of harrassment, and all kinds of stuff, so it was all well documented. Since that happened, the company that he worked for went bankrupt...so he would have been without a job anyway...so it all worked out for us for the good. I always say what comes around around.

You'll find a better job where your happy, and your boss will be the one to lose in the end.

I am lucky enough to have the freedom to do what I want at work. As long as my photo's are edited and up on my website, I have free reign. I don't spend any time on the computer at home for many reasons. But I do miss talking to all the later people.

ISIS...are you recommending that everyone on the Rewind get in YOUR hot tub, or get their own? [Big Grin]

buffalo-girl...ouch...sorry to hear that.

I'm quite lucky with my sick time at work. For 10 years, I've not abused it, so it continued to build. as of now, I have over 1300 hours of sick time back....which allows me to be off work for almost a year with full pay. Hopefully I will never be hurt or sick enough to need to use it.
