Being in Pain is Really Tiring

Wow! A week with no posts! I’m sorry guys. I’m ok – well mostly ok. I’ve been very very tired lately and in a great deal of pain.

Remember my fall that I posted about last week? Well it turned out to be a little bit more than just a kick ass bruise to blog about :( Yes, I suspect that I fractured one of my ribs – not a “true rib” but one of the “floating ribs” I have at the bottem of my rib cage. Normally I’m a suck it up and walk it off kind of person, but with this I’ve been a “woe is me my effing back hurts” kind of person. I say I suspect I broke a rib because the Dr at the walk-in clinic I visited said x-rays are a waste of time – there’s nothing that can be done for a broken rib. But the pain! I gave birth to both of my kids naturally (no epidural) and that doesn’t even compare to this! Advil, dear sweet Advil has been my best friend :) I’ve been so sick of having every breath hurt that I went to bed when the kids did 3 or 4 times last week.

So what else is new? Not much – Christmas is fast approaching and I’ve barely started shopping! I’ve started making the gifts for my mom and MIL (photo albums filled with 4 yrs worth of photos) – it’s been a fun project looking back at the kids as babies and reminiscing how cute they were. I have no idea what to get my nieces and my nephew. What do 8 & 10 yr old girls like? What do 7 yr old boys like? I also have my FIL, my SIL, my BIL, my dad, and my brother to buy for! Thankfully my kids are done – but that’s because this year I farmed that job to my hubby 😉 he loves shopping for his girls.

Hmm…. What else? I dunno – why don’t you tell me about your past week? How’s your Christmas shopping coming along? I feel like I’m so out of the loop because I’ve been offline for so long!

  1. Been there and done that with broke ribs … way too many times. I learned that if you quit breathing they wont hurt (that really don’t help for long though).
    I have no idea what to tell you to get girls for Christmas, since I only have boys. As far as the boys … you can get them any type of truck or car they can push around (hotwheels are OK but bigger is better). A hand held game will entertain them for hours.
    I got to get off my lazy butt and get my shopping done tomorrow.

    Good Luck and I hope you get to feeling better.
