I'll be headed to Chicago with my hubby, youngest daughter and a group of our students from church tomorrow. I was going to be at Family Camp, but since I just spent a week at Cowen I think that it would be much better to go with our youth group on this trip.

I'm also a little bit worried because of my stinking back pain. It's constant and it doesn't stop. I have two herniated discs in my L4 & L5. Sitting at a desk 8 hours a day may not be the easiest thing on my lower back area. Got any tips for ways I can avoid back pain in the workplace during the course of the day? Seriously, any tips would be gre…
