Oh My Aching Back!
There's nothing that makes me feel like an old lady like a backache. Backaches can be extremely debilitating. I just looked up the word debilitating, and one of the definitions is enfeeble. Doesn't that sound like an old lady word? So, I've been pretty miserable for the last few days. I've actually been picking a kid up (separately, this time!), but it's taking its toll. And forget about working in the garden. I've tried to get back into a flute practice, but that's hard on the back, too. Not to mention Miranda screams the whole time. When am I going to play if she hates my music? So, all the things that give me joy have been taken away with this pain. I know that sounds melodramatic. I can't do the things I enjoy, I can't tote my kids around (although, do I really enjoy carrying them both at the same time? No), practicing is hard, walking hurts. I feel physically sore and emotionally spent. I need a hug. (Gentle, tho.)
