So, my back pain has escalated and is hovering around the unbearable level. Went to visit a chiropractor today right by Gabe’s office. Gabe watched the girls in the mini-van for a fun 45 minutes. Found out I may have to have surgery if this can’t be fixed in 6-10 visits. I waited waaaay too long. Well, I’m not going to beat myself up about it. I will do what I can now and not look back. I’m 30 (which is fairly old) but I should have a few good years left in me, and I’d like to live them as pain-free as possible. Please pray that I can get this dealt with and find someone to help with the girls while I go to all these appointments. It doesn’t always pay to suck it up and be tough. EDIT: I just got off the phone with my cousin Camy, the life-saver. She’s watching my babies while I go get healed. Thank you, Lord and Camy!
Did I mention that some mean men are cutting down trees in the church-owned lot behind our house? My haven is being violated, and I’m not sure why. It’s depressing.
I feel overwhelmed by all that is on my plate. No one to blame but myself really. No one held me at gunpoint at the potluck supper of life and forced me to pile on the grub.
This week at a glance: tomorrow–chiropractor, Gabe taking Livi and Ava to see the Wiggles Live–how fun is that?, Wed–New Zealand interview, McGraw-Hill, writing an article for my alma mater’s alumni mag, pumping lots of milk for my first overnighter away from my snooty 7-month-old who refuses to drink formula, Sat-Sun–my first NASCAR race in MI (bethelaine, et.al, I know you think I have crossed over to the dark side…) and as I mentioned, my first time away from Neenie-Poo. Am a teensy bit nervous/sad, but THRILLED to have 36 child-free hours of shopping, sleeping, eating, race-watching with my hubby.
Had a fun visit with Tug (Gabe’s brother) and Angie, Morgan, Reese, and Tanner yesterday. I love being an aunt! I have such wonderful (and cute!) nieces and nephews. Took them to the…Metro Gardens. Heehee.
Have our packages ready to be mailed to our cheeky English penpals. What fun!
Back pain or no, I feel blessed.
