*I threw my back out last week. It was bad. Like I couldn't walk, stand up straight and one hip was sitting higher than the other bad. I spent three days doing not much more than lying down and it was feeling better, but after a day of toddler chasing, laundry, and housework, it is in a precarious position once again. My chiropractor has been on vacation (of course!) and was supposed to be back yesterday, but so far her vacation voice mail is still picking up. I may have to resort to going to her emergency back up chiropractor, because I cannot have it go back to what it was last Thursday/Friday/Saturday.
*We bought a new minivan. It's our first brand new vehicle. It's actually been really nice with my lame back. When we took the car seats out of our old wagon, the amount of stickiness and cracker/Cheerio residue was embarrassing.
*Miles was up most of the night and is running a fever today, maybe from his vaccinations last Friday. He's mostly in good spirits, though. Me? Not so much on account of the pain and exhaustion.
*Oscar "sneaked" into our bed for the second time last night. He just got up in the middle of the night and joined us. It wouldn't have been so bad if it weren't for the Miles Factor. So, two kids, two adults in the the bed. Lets not forget my old person back. Possibly why my back feels worse today?
*I somehow volunteered to be the coordinator of Oscar's preschool's 3s playgroup. This will likely begin with me trying really hard to be all organized and efficient but end with all the other parents hating me because I am only marginally organized and hardly efficient. Expect to hear me whining about this. Oh, and hey, question: Should I out myself to these moms as a blogger? Or should I keep it a secret so I can use them for blog fodder?
*DC has been experiencing August-like weather for the past week, with temperatures and heat indexes reaching into the 100s and humidity in the 80 percentages. I had the boys outside on Saturday for an hour playing in the sprinkler/wading pool and they were red-faced sweaty messes within 30 minutes. I was able to bribe them in with Popsicles and then we each had three.
I'ma finish my coffee, and you should too. Oh, and go check out some other RTTs over at Keely's. Go on now. Shoo.
