(Although constantly carrying around a 26 pound toddler probably didn't help.)
So, in light of my current situation, here's a short list for you.
Reasons it Stinks to Lay Flat on Your Back All Day:
1. When your little presh comes running up to you, wanting to be held, you can't do it. Or you can try, and look like an 80-year old hunchback in the process.
|She is totally worth every moment of hunched-over-ness. |
Also, please note that the baby mullet finally grew into some sweet pigtails!
2. You will inevitably cry during tivoed episodes of Extreme Makeover Weight Loss Edition. And the Bachelorette. And maybe, possibly, ONLY HYPOTHETICALLY, Bachelor Pad 2.
(Why, yes. They were tears of embarrassment. For everyone on that show.)
3. I'm one of those weirdos who actually likes to workout. And I'm fairly positive that it replaces my probable need for a therapist when it comes to stress relief. So guess what you can't do when your back is hurt?
Anything involving a workout.
(Which means Crazy Sherri may have just made an appearance. John, get excited.)
Disclaimer: I know that I'm being overly dramatic. (If you've read this for any amount of time, you probably shouldn't be too surprised.) And I KNOW that there are SO many worse things that people are going through. So, I'm going to take my cortisone shot, my prescription for physical therapy, and I'm going to SUCK. IT. UP.
While watching episodes of Bachelor Pad, of course.
