Oh, what a pain!

So I get it now...when you tweak your back you have to take it easy for a while if you don't want to really go down for the count. But what is a mom of 4 boys, with a yard that needs weeding, a trampoline that needs to be set up and moved 4 times because of crabby neighbors, a bathroom that needs to be painted and plastered, a race this summer to train for and a baseball party that needs to be hosted to do? Now I'm paying for it and oh, what a pain! I have been forced out of commission and put on "light duty" by my boys and loving mother until I can get healed up. I've never had back problems before (even through all my years of gymnastics) and yikes, does it stink! Physical therapy starts Thursday and with a little more time this sacral/ileac joint dysfunction will be a fleeting memory I hope. Until then, I have all this time to rest and think up more projects and things to add to my "to-do" list - to do with patience and caution of course.

I'm so sorry! I hope that back heals quickly... before your "to-do" list gets too long. :)

How'd you hurt your back? I did that once moving my pianos around and I thought I'd die--I could hardly get out of bed. Luckily, it healed, and I'm back to doing everything and more again!

So sorry about your back! I hope you get feeling better soon, and that physical therapy works quickly. Meanwhile enjoy the down time, it is probably just what you need.

Bummer! Rest up and enjoy some "forced" down time to rest. Feel better soon!
