This Smells Beautiful!

Friday I woke up at Clint and Anne's house to find that my lower back had gone out. It was pretty painful and quite upsetting. Hula-hooping had kept my lower back in good shape for over a year. I had put the hoops down for a few weeks (at least) and my back simply reverted back to it's old ways. I am still recuperating from the ordeal.
Any-hoo, I managed to make my appointment with the trigger point specialist. Basically, it’s a form of massage that focuses on the trigger points (injury sights) in your muscles. The lady was very knowledgeable and I would like to see her again. The good thing about her is that she focuses on teaching self-treatment. This is stuff I can do at home.

After the therapy, our little family went to see my little sister and her family. We sat out on her back porch and watched the kids play as we talked. I was sad because I could not play with them like I usually do. I was just in too much pain. Dale played catch with the girls and we took turns taking pictures.
Here they are playing catch:

I could only take pictures from my position on the couch. Lily came over for her close up.

She has a little burrito on the corner of her mouth. She calls it “bito.” Mmm….Taco Villa.

This is Zoe:
I wonder where she got her curly hair?

An ant (not aunt) bit Lily and she came over to her mother and I with tears in her eyes. Her momma kissed it and I told Lily that I had some ant bite medicine in my purse that would make the sting go away. Ok, so it was scented hand sanitizer from bath and body works. She did not need to know that. I gave her some and her tears dried up. Zoe wanted some so I put a drop of it in her hand. She rubbed it in, smelled her hand, and declared “this smells beautiful!”

I am so going to use that phrase.


I already miss them.
