Wow so I haven't updated since Sunday... that shouldn't happen.
You know what I always end up realizing. When I have the most to say, the most going on... that's when I tend to skip a few days. Sunday after I posted, I ended up at the treatment center because something felt seriously wrong with my arm. It had been tingly from my shoulder through my fingertips since I woke up that morning (for no reason at all). Several x-rays later, hello pinched nerve.
Because of course. Hello klutzy me. Only this time was more awesome because I didn't even do anything!
My arm was in a sling and I was given pain relievers and a muscle relaxer... I was to wear the sling whenever I was not driving and take the muscle relaxer only at night (since I spend half the day in and out of the truck). Yeah so that sling didn't make it 24 hours on me. I was in and out of the truck so much Monday morning I gave up halfway through the day.
So let me set the scene. In addition to the pinched nerve, Al and I also discovered a mouse... in the house. That only came out at night. Which lead us to finding a hole in the tile under a kitchen cabinet. And yet no broken tile pieces on the floor.
Add that to memories of gonads and strife.
Cue Al and I not sleeping.
Combine that with scrambling to pack and finalize my arrangements for the trip... and yeah. Time flew by. I sat down a few times to blog things out in California but each time I did something would come up to sidetrack me. So here we go. I'll put it into a few shorter posts here instead of one epic one. And I'll also let you all know when you can read more at 5 Minutes for Mom.
