Spring Break

I had my follow-up with the surgeon.  I had gallbladder surgery in January and they put a stent in to catch any gall stones that might still be in there.  I had some complications, I posted about in the post before this one.  This surgeon told me they wanted to wait until 12 weeks and I am at 8 weeks.  They will remove it on April 20th.  It will come out via my mouth and they will use a scope to go down my throat, etc to retrieve it.  I thought I was going to be awake, but it is a same day surgery and I will be knocked out for it.  I am kind of glad just because I gag easily.
I also fell on my hands and knees in January and my arm is still hurting, plus I helped a teacher lift a table at the school for parent/teacher conferences and my back is pulled out.  I went to see my chiropractor yesterday and he got me lined back out.  My hips were off, my shoulder was out of line and he worked with my lower back.  It will take a few days, but I am hoping to feel much better soon.
Josh and I are going to get our hair cut tomorrow.  I am excited about that.  I had also wanted to take him to see Beauty and the Beast, but the tickets are so expensive.  I have not decided if we will go or not.
I decided to try the Wal Mart Beauty Box.  I have been looking at subscriptions and I decided this would only cost $20/year and I could see if I liked it.  I hate to sign up for a monthly subscription and us need the money for something else.  Anyway, here are the pictures of it.  I liked it.  I believe the Spring one will come out April 1st.  It comes with items you can find at Wal-Mart.  There are no name brand items like you might find with Ipsy or Birchbox.  That is fine with me.  I just want to see what I get.  It is kind of fun.  Target does these as well, but it is not a subscription, you sign up monthly.  I understand they sell out fast though.  I might try to get one of those this summer when I have time to be online and wait for them to post it.  Do you do any subscriptions?  Which one/s?  Do you like them?

Josh and I are on Spring Break, so I hope to be able to come by and visit blogs.  I hope you are all doing well!  Happy Spring!


  1. Hi Lori, I pray all goes well with your surgery and you feel better soon. Sounds like you've been through quite a lot my friend. I too joined the Walmart Beauty Box. The Spring box started shipping yesterday not April 1st. But we may not get them until them by the time they process them and ship them USPS. I can't wait as I'm thrilled they only ship them each season and not monthly. Take care and have a day of blessings dear Lori.

  2. Lori,

    Wow, I must keep missing all your troubles on the Facebook. I did know about your surgery. It sounds like you are falling apart! May God heal you and make you 100% healthy!!!!
    Your box subscription is a great deal, $20.00 per year! wow. Fun to try all the new products and you get a little surprise in the mail once a month.
    I did not know about your last post in your blog so I will go read that now.
    I hope you enjoy a great spring break. Do you have $6.00 Tuesday's at the movie theater. One of our movie theaters offers that, so we always go only on Tuesday.
    Usually it's just senior citizens in there. LOL!

    Have a great week! hugs

  3. Hi Lori!
    I am so sorry you have been going through these physical problems. Praying for you!!! Thank you for visiting my blog, I am really going to try to keep it up. HUGS xo

  4. Hi Lori, thanks for the visit. Sorry you have had to go through so much. I went through many years of neck/back/shoulder pain. Acupuncture helped a lot! I want to see Beauty and the Beast. We can go under senior rates now! Enjoy your spring break!

  5. Hi Lori! I'm happy to see your update, even though it had lots of sad news in it. I'm sorry about your fall and your back. Getting older is tough. I have been suffering with a cold/sinus issues for over a month. I thought I was over it but then had a bit of a rebound. I'm so ready for summer. I hope your back gets to feeling better very soon and that you are able to enjoy the rest of your spring break. It's cloudy, dreary, and cool here today. We had just a little rain but it's supposed to warm up close to 50 today and into the 60s tomorrow, so I am thankful for that. I hope you are getting some nice weather. Big hugs!

  6. Praying for you Lori, you have been going through so much! God bless you. That beauty box sounds interesting, I will have to look into it.
