Easter and Back pain and MOther of the year


Here is our fancy pic from Easter. it was pretty nice and laid back around here. we woke up, did a little egg hunt, then got ready for church. i had to be there early to play violin. someday i will NOT hurt everyone's ears when i play, but i guess the only way to get better is to practice... thanks to mom for playing piano.
then, we ditched out of church early and went to my mom's for another egg hunt and linner. it was lots of fun, and the farnsworths even came! we were super stuffed, so we all came home and took naps and then our DINNER was yogurt and toast. (GORMET, i KNOW!)
it was a nice relaxing Easter!

But, my back has been KILLING! i have always thought of myself as a really strong person. but lately, i think i am such a WUSS! my back has progressively gotten worse over the last few months and last week i had a couple spasms that hurt pretty bad, and then starting monday, my back started to hurt so bad it put me in tears (and the e.r. so i could get something for the pain!) honestly, i thought it was a kidney stone. they did a ct scan and found SOMETHING in there - but they think it is just an "isolated calcification, surgical clip or retained barium from a previous study/surgery"... SERIOUS???? but they dont think that is what is causing my pain???!!

so, now it is wednesday. i have done nothing but lay around taking drugs for the last few days. i feel so worthless... let me just illustrate what a great mother i have been.

today was nate and charity's well checkup (it is almost their birthdays and they need their shots). SO, i take them in. charity gets her temp taken 103.3 nate gets up there, 102. SERIOUS? i just wasted my time!!! so apparently, the kids both have ear infections and temps. i will have to reschedule their shots. how did i miss that charity was sick? i kindof had an inkling that nate was... but charity? all i heard from her on the way to the dr was "mom, my stomach is nervous." and that was because she knew she was going to get shots. she was so scared! oh well. i was kindof secretly glad they were not feeling well, because they came home with me and cuddled on the couch the rest of the day. (which is nice when you, yourself aren't feeling well).

but we will soon be back in the groove!

I really like Charity's Easter dress. It was so nice having her over to play Tuesday & I'm glad it worked out good for you! Honor was trying to sell me a bill of goods Wednesday about being achy & feeling hot. I didn't believe her, but now I'm feeling a tad guilty that maybe I missed something too.

Can I have her over to play on Friday while Aaron is at school? Just let me know when is a good time...maybe when Nate goes down for a nap? I would say we would love to have Aaron too after school, but I bet he is your big helper right now.

Love a good old Easter! Sorry about the back ache that stinks BIG TIME! Hopefully the drugs will kick in and help ya!

The kids look so cute (Charity is so pretty in that color!) Rachel & Jake are the same way when sick, I can't tell until they are near-death. Charity is just tough like her Mom.

I hope they figure out what is up with your back...it sounds miserable.

And I enjoyed the violins on Sunday...your Mom is so cute. My kids were singing "Hallelujah" all through the song, lol!

Have a great day, Jen

I think you deserve the Person of the year award. You are always doing remarkable things...no wonder your back hurts! Sunday was wonderful. I really enjoyed the musical number and I think you play the violin just fine. No ear pain here.

Cute Easter pic! Sounds like a wonderful Sunday. Hope your back gets to feeling better soon! And I love it when my kids are cuddly when they are sick!
