Last year I hurt my back, too much lifting - little boys, pig food, little boys, totes of apples, little boys, canning, little boys, strawberries.....little boys....and the next thing I knew I had permanent pain down my leg and couldn't sit or lie down comfortably and no painkiller could touch it. My doctor told me NO LIFTING. I stopped everything. And it went away, slowly. Now I listen to my body more, it had been giving me signs for months....but I thought it was sore tired muscles not bulging back discs.....boy, it's amazing how little you can do when you can't lift....so now I'm getting to the age where getting hurt is not a good thing either....3 kids, business, family......So much depends on the mummy.....although in my house, Daddy is around 24/7 too but with a slightly different philosophy. Not necessarily a bad thing but the kids have definately had less hands on less reading to and less mom time this past week...... Hopefully this coming week is a polar opposite.

WOW! This was a cool day. I posted about it....memories of my childhood...we went for a walk in the little known government lands/tidal flats in front of the home where I grew up. We cut grass and wove, like I did when I was young. We were caught by the tide - that came up all the dried up river beds. I decided to show them how to weave while we waited for the tide to go out.....but found it was still coming in and eventually I had to take off my boots and socks and carry the boys across FREEZING water to get back to our car.....
August is definately a crafty guy. He loves to make things. I hosted a Stampin' it Up party and he was so UPSET that he couldn't make a card the next day too. And now the "Big book of things to Draw" book that I gave older cousin for Xmas?????? August is using it to draw.....
Now How to I tag people??? Pam?? Zombie Girl?? Amy??
