Driving by Braille!

So there is one thing that I forgot in my 100 things. I drive by braille…I like to reach out and touch people! I seem to be prone to car accidents. It’s like somebody installed a large magnet in my truck and under my hood! It all started within a few months of getting my first car. And it continued REGULARLY until about 3 years ago…Woohoo the insurance is getting ready to go down!!!!! I am so happy that they don’t consider ALL your diving history for insurance or else I wouldn’t be able to drive anymore! I am proud to say that I have gone 3 years (well on 12-02 it will be 3 years) without any car accidents or speeding tickets!

Well after all that is said, I suffer from neck and back problems due to my previous driving by braille incidents. And having my latest baby has made it worse also.I have had all sorts of treatments….Acupuncture, Massage, TENS, Chiropractic treatments,  PT and so much more!

So yesterday I had the day off and got so much done around the house…lots of organizing!!! In between all that I was carrying a grumpy little man around the house. Today I woke up with a sore back and by 12pm today I had officially thrown it out of whack! I could barely walk…I made it to the drug store to buy meds, patches and creams!

I am officially out of commission…if only the baby would cooperate! Why is it that when mommy doesn’t feel good the children always seem to be at their neediest!!!! Aiden has cried for me to hold him all day! I know he is teething…but I swear it is at it’s worst today…of all days!

Hoping for some good thoughts and prayers to be sent my way!!!
