updates

Thanks to everyone who has been asking about our house and my back...

Our house: we have only had one showing, got great feedback, and then heard nothing.
Today was the broker tour and several Realtors came to see the home and assess the asking price. Everyone gave great feedback and thought our house would sell (um, well then, let's get going!).
There is an open house on Saturday. We have no idea if anyone will come!

My back: my back has not gotten better; instead, the pain has isolated into one spot next to my spine that is painful when I cough or take a deep breath. Diagnosis? According to the chiropractor I saw yesterday, I tore the cartilage between two ribs. This will take a while to heal so no running until then. So, I will see the chiro 2 times a week for a while and ice and heat and rest (yeah right) and hope for the best. The therapy he is using on me includes 10 minutes of these vibrating sensors on my back while I lie on my stomach alone in a dark room and relax. Even if this does nothing for my back, I'm going to keep going just for the 10 minutes of silence. Total bliss.

I'll update again when/if anything changes.

Some funnies for you:
After the very traumatic shots Skyler got at the doctor, she was finally able to stop crying after several minutes and squeak out:
"It is NOT nice to stick people in their legs with sharp things!"

This morning while I was feeding Reed, Skyler said:
"Mom, could you please stop feeding Reed for a minute because I think he wants to give me some lovin'."

And, I had my first conversation with Reed this afternoon. It went like this:
Me: "Say ma ma."
Reed: "Da da."
Me. "Say ma ma."
Reed: "Da da."

Sorry to hear that you're still in so much pain. Good luck with the "get some rest" part. I'll be rooting for you.

I laughed out loud reading the rest. We HAVE to get the girls (and boys) together - some time between icing & heating your back, resting and getting your house ready for showings :o)

So sorry to hear about your lingering back problem--I blithly thought everything was OK. Just take it easy--I'm coming home soon to help.

Today is Cameron's birthday and he woke up this AM all aglow and annouced "Now I am seven." (Yesteday he was definitely still six.) Family celebration tonight--party on Saturday.

Three inches of snow fell here yesterday--a humble beginning but the landscape has changed. It's beautiful.

See you soon--tons of love to all

Thanks for the updates! Paige and I were wondering about your back the other day.

I love the report on Skyler! Tyler's 4 year shots were a tramatic experience for us. After the nurses left, he said, "Those are really stupid girls!" Then he turned around and said, "Stupid Mommy!"

Reed is too cute. I loved the pictures of him in the swing with the girls. If only he could be as lucky in high school right?
