when you pull a muscle while sleeping and wake up in excruciating pain.
Yeah, that moment came at me fast this morning. The pain is centered in my right shoulder blade area near the spine, and it's the most annoying, frustrating twinge ever, to the point where reaching for anything with my left arm hurts like heck. And breathing....goodness, even deep breathing hurts.
I've been surviving on motrin, heat pads and doing much of nothing all day, which is the worst thing you can do to me. I'm so used to being on the go constantly that I find myself impatient and downright annoyed when I'm forced to slow down.
But I did still manage to do a few things.
Starting with throwing some chili in the crockpot first thing in the morning.....
then puttered around with some decorations and put this one together for my dining table...a little bit of Christmas cheer and sweetness
a few more decorations are making their way out of storage
and since I love snowmen so much, these have to be some of my favorite decorations
put the finishing touches on my Christmas village
Wasn't able to get as much done as I was wanting to, but there's always tomorrow right?
Thankfully hubby didn't have classes tonight, but he was home a little earlier this afternoon and seeing as everyone was hungry, we sat down to an early dinner
If you're looking for the recipe, you can find it here on my food blog.
As you may have noticed, I have also changed the header, I wanted something Christmas or winter themed. Looking at it makes me happy, it takes away a little of the sadness of missing a white Christmas.
So I just keep reminding myself that next year I'll be able to enjoy that, up close and personal :)
