Feelin' Better back is feeling better today. I managed to get around without having to look like a frail old lady with the walker most of the day. Took a pain pill and a muscle relaxer then went and soaked in a nice hot bath...AHHHHHH! So right at this moment I mostly feel a little stiff and kinda sore, which is lots better than having to crawl on my hands and knees 'cuz I can't walk kinda pain.

Mom came over first thing this morning before the little ones were awake to help me out for the day until MrKB got home. Thank God for Moms! Don't know what I would have done without her. It really sucks not to be able to pick up my baby girl right now, especially when she's got that "I want Mommy and ONLY Mommy" cry goin' on. I also hate the guilty feelin' I've been having about not being able to carry on with my normal Mommy duties. MrKB worked all day then had to come home and take care of the kids, and even though he hasn't complained I can still tell he wishes he didn't have to do all that extra stuff. And I REALLY hate telling him 10, 15, or 20 times that something needs to be done and he just says "I'll do it in a minute" then never gets to it. Anybody else got a husband like that???

Tomorrow we have to go pick up the 5 yr old for our weekly visit with him and he house is a wreck. Mom at least cleaned my kitchen up for me, but there's still the living room, vacuuming, laundry, the bathroom....sigh. I'll be glad when I can get around well enough to get this stuff done without having my back go into spasms. Not that I particularly enjoy housecleaning, but you never know when someone from DHS might unexpectedly stop in, and besides, baby girl is gonna be mobile just about any day now and I'd like to keep the hazards down to a minimum.

Oh, yeah, I have a husband like that! I am a big fan of the muscle relaxer. I have never taken one myself, but my Hillbilly Husband had them when he had neck surgery last Dec. 22. (Yeah, what a great time to pick, huh? Santa needed a helper). But when HH took the muscle relaxers, he was snoring in the recliner within minutes, which was great because it kept him out of our hair, but not-so-great when I wanted to sit in the recliner

And even better, I have a mom like that. She is always running around for me and picking up my kids when I get stuck doing things at work. She's kind of like my personal assistant, except she loves me. That would be a kind of creepy thing for a personal assistant to do.

Amen on the husband like that as well. And while mine has been better lately than usual, he's still no me!

I'm with you and Hillbilly Mom on the whole mom issue - I'd be lost without my momma! She is an angel.

Ugh, I have a one year old and an 8 month old in the house so I KNOW what you mean about keeping hazards to a minimum. I can vacuum and feel confident about the cleanliness of the floor and 10 minutes later I see one of them gumming something. ACH!!!
