Now that I've had yet another day of laziness (doctor's appointment was cancelled), the butt-kicking shall begin first thing in the morning!!
My lovely mother-in-law is currently transforming a pair of pants into "city shorts" so I won't melt. Cuz, lemme tell YOU something...
...it is HAWT out there.
Even with the wind blowing it's like stepping through the gates of hell. The pool is practically boiling.
And next week this time I will be wearing pants, socks, shoes, make-up....
Fast forward to Wednesday:
I hauled my cookies to school today. I spent over an hour out in the heat (and did not melt) watching the boys practice. I was exhausted just watching them push that sled thing around!!! I don't envy them one bit.
And, I got some great compliments. Have I told y'all I'm kind of a whore for attention these days?? One of my kiddos told his buddy, as I was walking out to the field, "Hey, look...she's like a little person!" I really don't think they realized how short I was before....just round, like a pumpkin with legs!!!
I really got more gossiping done today than anything else. It felt so good to gab with my teacher frans. I did check most things off my list, took measurements and loaded the truck with painting projects. I even schemed up a project for Chris to work on this weekend. He soooo loves me for that one!!!
I got to peek at the Master Schedule...and that makes it official. Time to get back into the swing.
Tomorrow I'm going to a different doctor about my back. I even took some of Chris's prescription strength pain meds...it dulled the pain a little - but not much. I'm sure me loading bookcases into my truck today didn't help matters. But this whole not being able to do everything for myself sucks big old donkey noogies.
Now, it's bedtime!!! If I can get my over-inflated head through the bedroom door!!!
Oh yeah, and I am impatiently waiting for my secret bandit gift to come in the mail so I can mail it out. I am super excited about it!!!
And one last piece of advice: ALWAYS take your iron with food. (I learned that the hard way....**blech**)
