:: down and out

Unfortunately, my back went out last weekend…so my tush basically stayed on the couch for the bulk of the week. I managed to make it out of the house for a few minutes by Wednesday, and my doctor cleared me to travel east for my sister-in-law’s baby shower by the weekend.

Not a great week, but it definitely could’ve been worse. I caught up on a lot of reading and TV shows, which I will continue to do all this week. But I’ve luckily had a change of scenery and am camped out at my parent’s house where I can at least have some company during the day and get some help with Bean.

And just in case anyone didn’t know, my mom is a rock star…one of the least selfish people I know, takes care of everyone, and has nursed me through too-many-to-count injuries and illnesses. Looking forward to spending a week hanging out with family, even though I won’t be able to do much. So all you Jeff City folk, feel free to drop by sometime this week…you know where to find me!

Sometimes the little things bring the biggest smiles. How much would you give to spend a week on the couch?
