My back went out

My back has not been great since my little road trip a month ago. Yesterday it was a little worse and today I took the kids for a morning walk and didn't know if I could complete it. My back went into muscle spasm. :( Well, I made it home and on to the couch and the doctor prescribed me some Valium. So, I'm a little out of it but my muscles are relaxing a bit. The kids have been occupying themselves making potions and playing with sticks(B) and listening to story tapes and reading Children Just Like Me (J). They have been amazingly well behaved (this is not always the case). I've been on the couch with the computer on my lap reading through the Earth Scouts Facilitator's manual. I'll be starting an Earth Scouts group with a friend in the fall. So, we're all trying to do our best and I'm trying to remind myself that this to will pass.


  1. I'm so sorry about your back. I hope you feel better soon. Earth Scouts sounds like a fun organization.

  2. I'm sorry your back went out. I hope it's feeling better soon and that your kids continue to be so cooperative while you heal. :)

  3. Sorry to hear about your back going out. I've experienced it myself and know how frustrating it can be. Hope you feel better soon.

    Today you're featured on Facebook Fan Fridays on Zakka Life. You can find a link to your site on the left hand column of my site.

    kind regards,

  4. Ouch! Bad backs are the worst - knock on wood it has been awhile since I threw mine out.

    Earth Scouts sounds exciting- good luck with your planning and REST!!

  5. oooohhhh, feel better soon and take it easy!
