An Explanation...and a tagging!

I have been so out of it this week. No emails, no message boards (ARG!!!) and no Blog Hopping (Double ARG!!!). I do have a legimate reason though...I have been flat on my back on the couch since the weekend. Greg and I moved the outdoor setting which i thought was quite light, but turned out to be too much for my little back to handle. So I have been in really bad pain. making everyone run around for me because the physio and the doctor said if I didn't i would end up needing surgery. Not minor surgery either, so I got scared and now I have Greg, my mum and Greg's mum (bless them!) helping me with the basics. I know what an inconvenience it is, but we can all see the long term benefits...all of us but Audrey I am afraid...she is REALLY suffering with the no picking up rule...enforced from the time of said injury until 9 months from now! Seriously, I have been told NOT to pick up the poor darling til my back is fully healed IN 9 MONTHS!!! Don't know how that will work, but I will do my best.....
I am sure everyone has really cool news to share with the world, but I can't even sit at the computer longer than 10 minutes at a streth or my spine compresses and it hurts like hell!
But I am doing good...got to catch up on all the shows I recorded on Foxtel I over the past 3 months...I finally saw Stephen Kings Desperation...great movie if you are a fan. Saw a great doco on Maximum Security Prison...let me tell you it is one scary place, watched about 10 backlogged episodes of Close to Home...I do like that show. So now the memory is clear and i can bog it up with a bunch of other stuff, so next time i stuff up my back I am equally well entertained!

Leish tagged me...I actually got this one from my sister in law (hi Gerri!) and sent it round to the family. Some things may be different...and be warned, I have had limited human contact this week...I may be going a little crazy LOL!

hehe, this was fun to read. No surprises though.

Sorry to hear about your back. Sounds pretty nasty. I'm guessing that will mean no scrapping either!!!!

Hey, I am pretty worried about your back. I have no suggestions. I don't like the idea of back surgery, it scares me too. take care of you.

Angela - terrible about your back - right there with you sister - I suppose at least I can walk around and sit comfortably! Hang in there - it is really hard having to get everyone to help you especially at this time of year.

I am thinking of you - hope you and your family have a great Christmas.

Hi Ang. You and that back, you poor thing! I hope you are doing as you are told and getting lots of rest. I would struggle if I were told not to pick up my baby for 9 months. I hope you manage and Audrey tries to be understanding.

Loved your list. We have the same favourite icecream!! Snap.
