Pain in the neck : (
This is what I would love to do the way that I feel today! I currently feel as though I have a knife stuck in the left side of my neck/shoulder. Could be worse, but I sure would love to be laying on a beach with my head covered, the warm sun beaming on me. The sound of the crashing, powerful waves hitting against the rocks, and to just do....nothing. Especially not feel this annoying and surprisingly painful, inconvenient pain in my neck. I can't turn my head to the left or I have to move my whole upper body to do so. I don't normally like to take medicine, I like to think I'm a pretty tough lil' lady, but I've been taking regular doses of pain meds today and it's not helping as much as I'd like it to. I really am bummed that I've been so cranky today, just because I have this pain. I've tried explaining to the kids, that it's not them "Mommy's just cranky and not feeling well" and I'm trying not to take it out on anyone.
Anyway, today was a pretty mellow day thankfully. This morning I met my neighbour for coffee which is always a treat. We see each other here and there but don't really get much of a chance without all the kids interrupting us to actually have a conversation. Mind you, my brother in law decided he'd do that for us.( Just kidding, it was nice of him to stop by and say hi. He enjoys his Starbucks too!
After coffee it was time to pick up my youngest from pre-school. Went home to get some lunch, and had to laugh at myself for locking us out of the house (long story...not really just boring). Luckily my sis'n law lives across the street so we could use her potty. Seems like the bladder always insists at the worst times! I got a spare key from sis and headed back home (all the way across the street) for 15 minutes before picking up the other kids. It was a short day today, where they get out a bit early from school. After a quick trip to the grocery store, we came home did homework (well they did that) and I did the usual cleaning up bit, took my star athlete to his baseball game. One hour for two innings! They just started coaches pitch and oh boy, it took quite a while, but he did a great job! By the time we got home and I had to make dinner, I was in so much pain I had to cancel going to bible study. How come when you want to go somewhere your kids are like "No mom! I want to stay home! It's boring!....." and when you decide to stay home they get all mad at you and complain that they will miss out! That's not really a question, I know it's just the way they are. They like to be contrary at times.
My lil' "strongwilled" baby (almost 5) fell asleep on the couch right before dinner (of coarse) I was afraid of her getting woke up by the other kids (when she wakes on her own she is usually fine, but if woken up....OH BOY...watch out!) Well, it's WATCH OUT time! I'm trying to ignore her irrational, annoying screaming right now. The more I try to interact with her the worse it gets. If I give her space she'll come around.
After all the kids are in bed and asleep I'm hoping to just relax, and imagine myself at the beach with the towel on my face without a care in the world. Then, I'll start some new adventure tomorrow. I'd prefer to not have the annoying pain in my neck though. Sweet dreams my friends!
