Two things I did this weekend

1. I am feeling OLD. For the first time ever, I woke up on Sunday morning, stretched luxuriously (as I always do...enjoying my stretch immensely ... we even have certain rules in our household ... no tickling mom when she's enjoying a good stretch!) when ... POP!!! My neck spasmed violently all the way down through my shoulder. And I COULD NOT MOVE. Seriously. I thought to myself, "Well, this is interesting." and painful. As I lay there waiting for it to pass ... I soon realized that it wouldn't. And to make a long story short, Nathan had to help me stand up, with me sobbing the whole time. And I went to church like Frankenstein, turning my entire body whenever I needed to turn my head. This was not great since Nate's band was playing so it was my Sunday to baby wrangle ALL THREE KIDS alone in a church pew. Ohhhh, Lordy help me, is what I was thinking. Especially considering the Saturday we had had with Asher -- who was in top form, deciding it would be fun to be Indiana Jones and swing from the curtains in our dining room, practically pulling the hardware out of the wall. Yeah. His energy levels this weekend were through the roof. It was not a fun Sunday. I pretty much just hauled his sassy butt into the nursery and let them deal with him. Cop out, I know. But I had taken an Excederin PM that morning (the only pain medication we had in the house) and could barely see the pastor due to my drooping eyelids. I couldn't even bend my chin to look down at the baby in my arms!!! Oh what a fun Sunday. I should have just stayed at home. I spent the rest of the day flat on the couch with a heating pad. Nate was a champ and took good care of me and the kids during my convalescence. This morning, I am finally able to turn my head from side to side (not all the way! But most of the way!) Ugh, do I feel old.

2. I canceled my piratesonline.com account because the addiction was growing much too big. Actually, I've been playing it less and less, but I'm tired of dreaming about it at night (I usually play right before bed) and people were being rude online last night, hence my sudden desire to make a clean cut. Sigh!

You should have just stayed at home! but sending Asher to the nursery was indeed the wise thing to do! In fact, you should have thrown all 3 in there!

Ouch! That had to have hurt! With my first baby, I'm trying to hold still, for the epidural and it felt tickly, so I tensed my body all up, to stay still. That wasn't a good thing, either, and I ended up getting a heating pad for my neck, when I was still in the hospital. I could hardly move, either!

Hope you're feeling better soon.

Oh no!!! Neck injuries are a beast.

Keep taking it easy! Hope you get better soon!

Ouch! I did that about a year ago. I had to go to the chiropractor. Man those guys are awesome. They use this little thing that sounds like a stapler and wow, it's amazing. I think I already have osteoporosis from all the soda I drink.
