When mom has a bum back, you never know what avenues the kids might take to entertain themselves. In my case, I got a front row seat to a little kung fu fighting (all in jest, of course). By the end of the day, the living room floor was buried under a pile of pillows, blankets, and I don’t know what else. They did clean it up themselves. Thankfully.
I do want to thank you for your suggestions in response to my plea for easing my back pain. I took my son’s advice, gave in, and went to the doctor. I couldn’t handle not being able to walk or stand properly and I didn’t know how long it was going to last! Apparently my hip got out of whack and in the process pinched a nerve. Fun. I don’t have instant relief but I do believe I am on the road to recovery. Yea!
