Wooo...my 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.
