Hello....anyone out there???
It's finally here, the moment I've been anticipating for weeks now.....that new week of the new year....aahhhhh!
The kids are back at school and Curtis is back at work and it's deafeningly quiet here in the household. I can hear myself breathing, that's how quiet it is, quite creepy actually if you think about it, but good nonetheless.
I love the holidays and the craziness that starts around Halloween and goes right through until the 3rd or 4th of January, but I have to admit that I love the return to normal, the quietness that comes with being in the house alone, the possibilities of knitting or sewing, baking or reading or whatever I want to do without having to think about putting those things aside to get something else done first.
Like my new template, nothing like having uninterrupted time to sit on the computer and mess around.
Right after this was done, I got to work on the house, cleaning from top to bottom and it looks wonderful and it smells clean and fresh and I'm in pain. I blame the darn vacuum, I have this love/hate relationship with it, every once in a while I will be vacuuming something and BAM, I pull a muscle on the right side of my back. It's always on that side and it's those annoying little twinges that go from the neck all the way down to the ribs and make it painful to breathe. I tell you, it's times like these that you discover muscles you didn't even know existed.
So I'm taking it easy the rest of the day, I'm going to fix dinner and then I'm taking a hot bath and climbing into bed with a good book. Curt is home for the day and he has offered to take care of the kids so I can just relax my back. I honestly think I overdid it today, between the vacuum, the sweeping and mopping and rearranging....errr.....did I say that out loud?
Yes I rearranged Nicholas' room and so I'm paying for it, but that's fine, the house is clean LOL
I'm making this a super short post, there's not much going on around here and frankly sitting like this is just making me hurt more.
I send you hugs and kisses and wishes of everything nice and for all the sickies out there, hope you feel better soon. I'll be back in the morning, refreshed and hopefully able to type without feeling like my fingers are going to snap and break. Oh the joy of muscle strains.
PS By the way, how many of you watched "Superstars of Dance"? I did and I really enjoyed it, it helps that South Africa is on there too and I have to root for my home country right? But I have to tell you I want United States or Ireland to win. I LOVED the Irish Group dance.
