To put it mildly, this is not the happiest of happy times at my house.
This whole back thing is about to push me over the ledge.
And yesterday when Hollyn started her at least two week long stint at daycare because Mommy can't pick her up, Mommy almost lost it.
And then I remembered this:
Well, dadgummit, if a twelve year old can do it, then so can I.
I am bound and determined to make SOMETHING good come from this whole experience.
So, as I sit at home alone all day, icing my back every hour and a half and going to therapy, here are some things I'm doing to help make the most of things:
I WILL catch up on some reading.
Currently on the list:
I Am Number Four
The Happiness Project
Any suggestions are welcome and will be appreciated.
I WILL use this time to help accept the fact that Hollyn and I will not eternally cuddle up on the couch all day. At some point, she will have to learn that other people love her too..not just Mommy...even if Mommy does love her most.
I WILL use this time to catch up on some girl time.
Be expecting phone calls, ladies, because they're headed your way.
I WILL remind myself that if I can live through E-coli, I so got this....even though it's not going to be making my "Most Fun Things To Ever Do" list anytime soon.
And I WILL remind myself that it can ALWAYS be worse.
But, just in case these attempts fail, feel free to keep sending happy thoughts my way.
Here's hoping your Tuesday is fab-u-lo-so.
Must. go. ice. now.
Oh, and in case you're wondering, the wonderful pics. used in this post came from here.
