Back spasms are back! :(

4 day until we leave 10 until we are parents!
So today I have laid out Maylin's clothes, shoes, undies, socks, matching hair bows, jackets, toys, pj's. I started to get things out for Pierson when Chaucer (the dog) decided he needed a walk. So I obliged him and off we went. Some of you know I have a history of back spasms and this week has been no different... it has been bearable but somehow on the walk I slipped in the mud. (luckily I didn't fall). But you know how when you slip every muscle tightens... so here I am on my back on the couch with my 10's unit (a muscle shocker device) hooked to me. :(

I am praying and asking for all believers to pray with me that this will pass quickly! The thought of getting on a plane and sitting that long makes me want to cry more than I already have today.
Let alone, and more importantly I want to be able to pick up the children pain free and with out worry!

Thanks for your prayers!
I do have to note that my wonderful husband, Adam is cleaning the house, doing laundry, cleaning out the refrigerator... and still going! He is the best.

Here are pictures of the kids room I have been promising several people.

Kristi pointed us over to your blog today, and I can't wait to follow you on your journey to parenthood! And I must add- I LOVE your decorating style! Your kiddos are going to adore their new rooms! God bless, and I'll be praying for you to be pain free before the trip!

Rachelle said...

So excited for you. Praying for your back.

Rooms look great! Your kids are gonna love them!!!

Kristi said...

You know I'm praying sis! And I've got a wonderful group of "virtual friends" who will be as well!

By the way, we'll take a room redesign when you are home and up to it ~ you totally should do room design for kids as your new career!

Happy to be your newest follower. :) Sorry about your back though. I was thinking about you earlier today and pictured you out shopping and marking things off your list. If you have those pine needles delivered to your house, the kids and I will come spread them out. Could you give me directions?? Ha! Or better yet, maybe all of us could come help spread them out after get home. Can you imagine how fun that would be with 5 kids?

Tricia said...

I meant after YOU get home. Apparently, that 3 hour nap I had today wasn't quite enough.
