The Countdown Is On…

  • 9 days until Christmas
  • 5 days until we drive to Utah
  • 4 more days to finish all my projects and shopping
  • 3 more days of school
  • 1 day until myMother In Law comes into town

So you would think that I would be running around my house cleaning, sewing, and packing right? Hmm. Not so much. Those are things I would love to be doing, but instead I’ve been making Jspin rub this on my back and taking medicine to keep me from crying make it possible to move my upper body without shooting pains.

I’m not sure how I pulled a muscle in my shoulder while I slept, or why I am so lucky to hurt myself during one of the busiest weeks ever, but boy will I be glad when this week is over! The good news is that yesterday the pain was all over my back and today it’s just localized to my shoulder, so at least I can walk around and move now.

My motivating thought is that in a little over a week the holiday stresses will be gone and I’ll be sitting in front of a warm fire surrounded by family. I just may be drugged up and smell of menthol, but still, I will be a happy girl!

  1. ha ha…I feel your pain! 🙂
    Hope you can relax a little!

    K-My body is doing LOTS of relaxing, however my mind won’t stop stressing! 🙂

  2. My husband would accuse me of doing that on purpose (getting hurt)…haha, well not really, but it sounded good. 😉 I sure hope your kinks are worked out in time to enjoy the holidays with your family…have a safe trip!

    K-I think if he hadn’t witnessed the swelling and such he wouldn’t have believed me either. However, J has been taking GREAT care of me…massages and all! 🙂

    Sorry you got hurt. I hope the pain is gone by the time you leave for Utah. 🙂

    Or, in ten minutes. I hope your pain is gone for good in ten minutes.

    Or less. (Why prolong the agony for another five days?)

    K-You must be magic…already feeling better. I even washed my hair myself this morning! That’s huge! 🙂

    Oh, no…I hope you heal fast…and I hope you can delegate to get everything done. Take care of yourself.

    K-Thank you! I had been dividing up the jobs I could, but thankfully I’m doing much better now as I have some serious sewing to do! That one I can’t delegate! 🙂

    Ouch! I’m so sorry. I hope you’re feeling a bit better and taking it easy when possible. I may have to try that rub on my shoulder as well.
