While putting the Christmas decorations away this weekend, I managed to tweak my back.


So it hurts to bend over. Or sit down. Or get back up. Or reach for things. Or lift things. Or move, really.

Its so annoying. I hate being sick. I feel fine, except for having to rest my back, so I’m slowly going crazy… as the house falls apart around me.  I need a maid until I feel better to keep the house together and get things together while I’m laying around.  Since we all know that moms don’t get sick days and somehow I’m going to have to figure out how to keep things running while not moving as much as I can.

Who has some good books to read?

    I hope you feel better soon. I know how bad it is when my migraines put me down. Try to find the positives in having time to sit. Enjoy the moments watching the kids play. Perhaps play nail salon and let the girls give you a mani/pedi.
