So today when I stepped outside, I tripped on a stupid rock and before I knew it I was laying flat on my back and my children circling around me. In the biggest panic was McRush and #1. As they ran to my aid, I pleaded with them to just lay there for a moment, They obliged nervously. I just needed a moment for the pain to subside. Ironically all I could think about was the fact that I was laying my freshly washed and detangled fro on the ground filled with rocks and dirt.
I have a high tolerance for pain, clearly being pregnant with child number 10, so I felt discomfort but nothing major.
McRush and #1 pulled me up and I went in the house to sit down. I carried on with my day as usual, because well, that’s what I do best. Keep pushing.
Well, hours later, my back is stiff and my hip is sore. I believe I slightly twisted my ankle and my wrist so I am miserable. To add insult to injury, I feel a cold coming on and I am out of sea moss. Oh, le sigh.
I had planned or working into the morning hours on a couple projects but I am so drained right now. And what’s best is the RushBunch are wide awake. I put on a movie on netflix in my room and they are camping out on the floor tonight. McRush is working tonight. Had I told him I was in pain, he probably would have called off but I think I got this under control. I am blogging then going to bed.
Today we met with a lovely homeschooling Mama and her crew! It was awesome meeting her and hopefully we can collaborate later down the road to do some field trips and swap tricks and tips. I also took that time to bask in the glow of the sun. Unfortunately I only turned grey but I did reap two hour of vitamin D and boosted my melanin magic. AYYYYYYY!
Oh, I know some of you reading are concerned about #10 but rest assured, I have mastered falling while pregnant and he is is moving about like crazy. Thank you for your concerns.
