...and Pouring

Well, my hip x-ray came back negative...except I have a kidney stone. Yeah, I know. It was an assistant to the doctor who called me, so she didn't know which kidney the stone was in, but since my x-rays were all of my left side I'm assuming that the stone is in my old, left kidney. My new kidney is on the right. I immediately called the kidney doctors who didn't seem too concerned. She's going to look up the x-ray and then get back to me if there's an issue. In the meantime, I see a chiropractor on Friday to see if he can relieve the pain that continues to be annoying.

And...My Hip

Have I mentioned the terrible pain I'm having in my left hip? It started almost 3 weeks ago and I don't know how. I saw my doctor about it and she said I pulled a muscle. So she gave me some stretches to do and she would not prescribe me any pain meds. I got my kidney doctor to do it because the only OTC pain med I can take is Tylenol. All you pregnant women out there who can only take Tylenol know it does NOTHING! Well, three weeks later and the pain is worse than before. I can't get up from laying and it hurts to walk. I'm going to see my family doctor this afternoon to see if I need an x-ray or something else. Ugh.

Back to School, Back to School...

Day two and things are off to a good start. Yesterday was nice, it was nice to get a sence of normalcy again. I wasn't too tired at the end of the school day. But then we had Alli's homework, dinner, girl scouts and a big grocery trip. That means putting away groceries and then getting everyone ready for bed. By 9:00 I was toast. Anna only woke up once last night, so I was able to get some extened sleep. Still tired...but excited about a pay check in January!

A Very Target Christmas

On Saturday the Delhi Skirt Game Committee gave each of my girls a $100 "shopping spree" to Target. We got some basics (sweaters, t-shirts, snow pants, socks, diapers), and then they could pick out a few toys. It was so nice of them, but I cried three times. I hate taking when I'm used to giving. But they were all so nice and Alli said it was the best part of her weekend. She keeps telling me, "It's okay, Mama, I still love you alot."

When It Rains It Pours

And it has been pouring lately. Proof? How about all of the water in my basement? Yeah, the sump pump stopped working. What a mess! This after we had a drain back up and had to pay a plumber and after Alli failed her distance vision test and we had to buy glasses. And we're trying to take care of Christmas, too. Thank God for my parents. And thank God I'm going back to work soon. It's starting to get rough.
