Oh reader friends, your dearest Unsinkable is in a wee bit o' pain. She has thrown out her back and is forced to walk like a hunchback. No bueno.
I'm not entirely sure how this happened, only that I couldn't get comfortable last night and the Tot woke up crying for Daddy 3 times (just breaks your heart). Neither of the kids took a nap yesterday, due to airport transactions during naptime, and then neither of them slept all night. I figured I was garaunteed a late morning, but no. Six am came, and they were both awake, and I was walking like a caveman. To add to our generally great mood, I left our dog, Bear, outside all night (he usually stays inside) and it rained straight through the night and he is now soaking wet and smelling up my house with wet dog smell. I was supposed to take the Tot to the doctor today, but unfortunately, I can't carry Little David more than a few paces, which makes going anywhere impossible. Nice. You'd think this would be enough, but Little David is pulling up on everything and Tot sees it as her mission in life to pull him back down. Nice.
But never fear, your Unsinkable is of course, unsunk. I have aleve, I have a heating pad, and I have a mess of cartoons to (Lord Willing) pacify the children. Here's hoping this works and tomorrow we're back to normal. Tot has a Valentine's Day party at school and I have the cutest little outfit for her :)
