In an effort to move limestone and field rocks, haul chemicals to Tall Guy in a truck I need a running jump to get into, tear down MANY seed boxes (think 5 foot by 5 foot heavy duty crates), mow, and a few other crazy things like plant my garden, hoe by hand parts of the sweet corn patch, and take care of the house, I have managed to severely irritate a lower disc in my back.
Me: "Uhm.... so.... did I like pinch a nerve?"
Doctor: "No I would call this a swollen disc, a bulging disc"
ALARM BELLS! ALARM BELLS! This just the way Tall Guy started on his road to three back surgeries.
(Insert whatever colorful appropriate
I SO DO NOT HAVE TIME FOR THIS! The doctor said, "Go home, rest your back, take it easy. No lifting, sweeping, mowing, or bending." SERIOUSLY?????
So this is why I have not been too communicative the past week. I so want to get started on my cookbook project, and tell you about an adorable find in my mailbox, and show you the plants I bought to start the flower gardens, but I can't sit for very long. This all happened Monday night, and just today I have had a relatively pain free day, just some spasms. This being still "stuff " is NOT fun. I feel like a schmuck not being able to unload the drier or the dishwasher! I did manage to sit for a while at a family garage sale and go to my niece's birthday party where she revealed the news that I am going to have a new nephew in Novemeber. WOO! (I said from my chair.)
Hang in there with me! I am supposed to walk a lot, so I will try to snap some pictures of the landscaping project that starts Monday, and put up pics of the girls taking swim lessons and attending VBS last week. I just need to find a comfortable position from which to type on my laptop.
Who knew such a little pain in the neck could turn into a HUGE PAIN IN THE REAR?!?!?!
HAPPY FATHER'S DAY TO ALL THE GREAT DADS OUT THERE. I spent the afternoon with mine, and I get to see him again tomorrow. I am so grateful for all he has brought to my life. I hope and pray we still have many years to continue to learn from each other. I hope you get to hug your daddy today. They are the best presents a Daddy could ever want.
