Ouch is right! Today I was putting one of my ds's into the car and turned wrong!! My lower back instantly felt numb and it began to hurt BIG TIME!! I was all excited about working out again tonight but I think Im going to have to take the night off. I really am bummed about that and no this isn't a lame excuse. Any advice on my back? Heating pad, ice pack, electronic shocker (yea I got one of those and it's GREAT for strained muscles), ibuprofen and go to bed?

Well..Im going to take a few ibuprofen, get my moist heating pad out and read for awhile then hit the sack (I hope the heating pad is the right thing to do). I am REALLY upset about not working out tonight, it's 10:30pm..the kids & Troy are fast asleep and I could EASILY squeeze in a work-out, take a shower and be in bed reading by midnight..but my body tells me I need to rest my back and Im PISSED!

Today was a really pissy day all around. We have 2 dogs and both of them ran away today. The ONLY reason I was putting my kids in the car today and hurt my back was to go chase one of those damn dogs!! I use to love dogs, and sometimes still do but something really changed in me after we had kids. I have NO patience for dogs anymore, especially dogs that DO NOT listen...and our dogs don't. At least not to me.

Im over 1/2 way through "Good Grief" and I may end up liking this book. My previous post complaint may have been written in hast, it's all starting to come together now but I have a feeling I know where it's heading..we'll wait and see.

Oh yea one more thing...regarding the Care Bear arm stuck in our tub drain post from a few days ago. The arm is gone. It must of went down the drain and is now sitting in our drum trap. Hopefully it won't cause problems down the road.

Adios Amigos! :)

Last 2 days

Since I haven't posted in a couple days I thought I'd give ya a rundown.

Yesterday (actually Tuesday since it's 12:24 Thursday) kids & I went to the park and Abby met a little girlfriend. It was soo cute to see them playing together and made me even more anxious for my kids to start pre-school this fall. We made brownies on Tuesday and just played around the house. Can't remember anything else we did..so it mustn't of been important.

Today (Wednesday) kids & I ran errands in the afternoon. It constantly amazes me how well behaved my kids are getting. Taking them anywhere use to be such a pain, and a headache. Now the majority of the time they listen pretty well and don't necessarly run around like wild animals. We went to the post office and the dollar store. Each of them got a little toy, Wyatt got sunglasses, Blaine got a pinwheel and Abby got a stuffed bunny. I also picked them up some flash cards of numbers and pre-school words. They were only a buck each. :)

The last 2 days I've worked out both nights! Give me a "hell yea!!" I feel WONDERFUL!! I don't know why I waited this long to finally start getting back into shape. My first goal is to get in my next size smaller jeans (no I won't publically say what size that is..lol) by May 21st. We'll be leaving for vacation, heading up to MN to visit family/friends for 2 weeks. May 21st is also me & dh's 11 year wedding anniversary! :D

Im still reading "Good Grief" and honestly..it's HORRIBLE!! The writing is really bad and sooo choppy. I go from feeling really sorry for Sophie to making a disguested face by what Winston writes in the next paragraph. IMHO..Winston tried sooo hard to make a book with such a potentially good story line into comedy. And it just doesn't work..not for me anyway. Im almost 1/2 way through it so I will finish it, mostly in hopes that it all somehow ties together at the end.

Off to read a bit then hit the sack!
