Apparently my motivation for almost anything online has disappeared in its entirety this month. My husband's working an off shift, my son is in school, and I'm too tired to do more than I have to do. Normally my husband is pretty good about helping out around the house, and does most of the dishes that get washed in the dishwasher, and totes laundry down to the basement for me to wash, and then back up the stairs for me to put away. He also helps with random other stuff sometimes, like cleaning up after dinner, vacuuming, etc. Right now he is working 12 hour shifts at work, though, and has had a huge number of EMT calls, so I'm lucky if he manages to even remember to put gas in the car.
Almost 2 weeks ago I threw my back out when I was carrying a too full hamper down to the basement. I've had a bad back since I injured it in college and didn't take care of it right away. My doctor always asks me if I'm ready for surgery, or at least pain shots when I see him, but since I'm stubborn and often have weird reactions to medicine, I refuse. And most of the time the pain is relatively dull, and I can still do almost anything I want to do. For the last week and a half that has NOT been the case, though. It hurts to do anything. It's slowly getting better now, but I'd still give it at least an 8 on a 1-10 pain scale. And I have a high tolerance for pain. Add to that the other health junk that I've been dealing with lately, and I want to be in bed more often than not. Of course that isn't really a viable option, but that doesn't stop me from dreaming. ;)
Now that I'm starting to feel better, I have found some extra motivation to be online, so hopefully I'll be around more this week!
