Oops...I did it again!!

Ok, so my blogging ability has been interupted by the daily happenings of a busy life and the Christmas season and all that I need to be doing right now. I feel terrible that I have been slacking, so here is my latest...

Two days ago, I went out in the dark to put the chickens to bed, and slipped in the mud and wrenched my back funny. I could barely make it to the house and then I had to deal with kids since Gordon was at work. Obviously, I didn't sleep well that night and could barely move the next morning. Sierra ended up missing school because I couldn't get up to drive her and Gordon hadn't come home yet from work. I spent about 4 hours on the couch and then had to get up and try to be presentable for our friend that came over to do family pictures for our Christmas cards. After that Gordon's Uncle and Aunt came by and we visited with them for a while and then went out to dinner with them. I took a Vicodin at around 7pm and ended up sleeping on the couch with a heating pad. Today I woke up and have had a headache (probably from the Vicodin), and feel drugged. I still hurt a lot and am having a hard time doing anything. Sierra thinks it is fun to have to put my socks on for me since I can't bend over to do it. Oh well, I guess this is God's way of telling me to slow down and relax for a few days. All I need is a good book, the remote, and a dog or two to snuggle on the couch with!!!

And yes, I have done this before. It sucks getting older.
