Dear That Girl's back,

Please feel better. Quickly.

Kind regards, The Floor

Add in some naked, footless Moxie girls and you've got my house.

Rachel Sue said...

Sounds like the perfect time to utilize the talents of those who are closer to the floor than you!

Dear That girl's floor,

If it would help, I'll send you a photo of myself. And then you would feel much better about yourself.

Sincerely, MommyJ's floor.

Hope you feel better soon! :)

Nikki said...

We seem to be having the same kind of week. ;) I hope you feel better soon.

Kimberly said...

My floor would've sent a similr note to my abdomen except it has already suffocated. To death even.

Feel better soon!

This is what shovels were invented for. And husbands.

You just announce, "Everyone who is NOT currently creating new life gets to pick up the house!!"

Harmony said...

I second DeNae's comment.

Darn Mommy J who is so witty and took away my comment almost word for word except for I was going to say "You look like the celestial room compared to me."

Kathy @ Real Mom, Real Life said...

OOOHhhh -- I feel your pain. Really. I really do. My favorite tool that I have adopted is what I call a "grabmegotcha". It totally embarasses the kids and saves my back (both when I was preggo and now that I am "degenerating" ;)

Its one of these dohickeys ( and you can get them at walmart for 10 bucks. Best 10 bucks I ever spent.

Oh yeah -- and take it easy. You know hours of being on your feet making candy isn't the best thing for a woman making a human. Kick those feet up, girl. no -- not tomorrow, now. GO, put them up. Seriously.

Love you!

Lessons from your mother:
1. The standard of housekeeping goes down with every child. WHO CARES????
2. Stop trying to make everything perfect for company - we are family and WHO CARES????
3. Quit walking on that tile floor barefoot - buy a pair of heavy-soled nurses shoes just for the house.
4. Sleep with 2 pillows between your legs and one under your belly.
5. Once every hour lay on your bed on your back and pull your knees to your chest one at a time and hold it there for 1 minute. Then put your legs up on several pillows and rest for 10 minutes.
6. See your home teacher (the physical therapist one, not the carpenter!)
7. Use a broom to sweep all the toys into one spot so IF you are the one picking up you only go down once.
8. Quit carrying Mr. Squishy around - he will get used to it.
9. If it is your nerve that is bothering you do that thingy with the weight on your foot on the step that I told you about and then follow Kathy's advice. Yeah - even though the kids are running around - TV has to be good for something!
10. Get a blessing. (knowing you you already have...) Be there soon to help!

I love the announcement from DaNae above. Unfortunatley for me that one wont work anymore.... maybe I could change it to "anyone who has not created a new life with their worn out tired body."
