After receiving an order from my physician to rest, eat and get some help, I've been doing just that. My parents-in-law have been so wonderful in helping me out this past week. I am so grateful to them. I have been feeling a little better this week and that makes me hopeful that if I continue down this path things will eventually return to some sort of normal.
While it has been a time a relaxation and recuperation we have had a couple adventures this week. One was an adventure to the chiropractors. My neck, lower back, shoulders, elbows, wrist... most everything has been feeling sore so I decided, after some encouragement, to visit the chiropractor for the first time. I wasn't sure what to expect and was nervous about going.
Wait, I'm pretty much nervous about everything these days so I guess I shouldn't have been surprised that I was nervous about the chiropractor. But, I went and discovered that all those things I mentioned above were quite out of alignment. After my first visit I felt better, not completely better, but better enough to admit that it helped to get prodded by a chiropractor.
Our second adventure was much more fun. We went to an event hosted by our local library called 'Touch a Truck'. Various trucks were parked outside for little ones to look at and touch. Monkey was very excited to see these big trucks up close, even Sweetpea enjoyed it. It was a lot of fun even if the crowds made me feel jumpy.
