Oh My Back!!

What a boring week I had last week. It was boring cos I couldn't do anything.
I took Montana shopping on Monday to get DH's christmas present and to teach her *how* to shop and spot bargains. ;o) I took her into the parents room and fed and changed her and put her in her pram. Just as I was bending down and obviously twisting my back went POP! I fell to my knees with shooting pain. I crawled over to the couch (really nice parents room at Myer) and pulled myself up onto it. I am so glad no one else was in there. 2 mums had just left. I sat for about 15 mins hoping to let the pain subside. But it didn't. I was going to ring DH to come and get me. I could hardly walk, but slowly made my way down to the car. I don't know how I got Montana in the car and the pram in the boot.
I called the Chiropractor on the way home but there was no appointments until 4 that afternoon. So I went home until I had to pick DS up from school and went straight to the Chiro.
When a chiro says 'wow, that is really out and boy is it inflamed', it's scary. Unfortunately he couldn't crack it so I had to go back on the Tuesday morning.
I didn't have the best sleep that night.
When I went back on the Tues he was able to crack a little bit but not enough. So I had to just keep icing it and go back this Tues. (tomorrow)
This past week has been painful. I couldn't bend down, couldn't pick up Montana, couldn't stand for too long or even sit for too long. I couldn't do anything and it was driving me mental.
The poor kids copped it. I was so tired from not sleeping and in pain and feeling useless, I let rip on the kids and told them their rooms were pigstys and they were so lazy.
But finally I am feeling better now. I am moving around and slowly but not fully bending down. Still a bit sore in the lower back, but not looking forward to the Chiro tomorrow. I hate going, but I know how good I feel afterwards. I don't like the cracking sound and especially when he does my neck, I feel so ill and dizzy from the sound.
I did manage to do some scrapping on Sunday.
It's our 1st anniversary today and DH got me a $50 voucher for the LSS. He said as he handed it to me last friday 'well the first is paper'. How sweet he is. We went to the LSS and I spent it on the Sat. He couldn't believe what I got. He said 'I thought you would've got a sh** load of stuff.' That's when I told him that it wasn't the cheapest hobby. He looked disappointed.
Anyway, here are some of the creations from Sunday and some of my favourite pics from this past week.............

I don't think this one is finished. I want to add some buttons.

It's not for a comp or anything. Just one I had sitting for ages not knowing what to do with it.

This one is for the Scrap Therapy Monthly Challenge

This is for a comp at the local LSS. They provide the paper packs.

Hopefully my little cherub will sleep a bit this week when she is supposed to. All my housework is done, but I really should be doing my school work. Maybe one hour a day and the rest for my home work. Scrapping is soothing!!! and it will help me from going nuts with all this school work and give me a bit of a break.

Wish me luck for the Chiropractors tomorrow!!

Until then..........

Beautiful layouts! I especially love the one of your beautiful wee girl, so precious! Good luck with your back, I got a compressed fracture in my spine earlier in the year and it flattened me, still bothers me on a daily basis too. :))
