the gnomes are back

Jan 23, 2012

But this time they feel like larger circus gnomes doing forward rolls through my lower intestinal tract. I spent the whole day in bed yesterday which would have been lovely if I hadn’t been so miserable.

On the good side of life, I read a lot of interesting things, got a little bit of sleep, and lost enough bodily fluids to lose a few pounds. On the bad side of life, my back feels permanently contorted by my mattress that sags in the middle. On the really, really super-duper good side of life, some amazing Bed Angel brought over a mattress on Friday while we were gone to gym!!! If we can get it onto our bed before tonight, maybe my back will be able to un-contort and start resembling a normal spine again.

p.s. If you are the Amazing Bed Angel, THANK YOU!!!! I laid on your wonderful present this morning for a few minutes and it is a million times better than our concave-in-the-middle mattress that turns me into the letter “u” in a matter of minutes.

p.p.s. There are really no words that can say thank you enough for the bed. I wish I knew who you were, I would do something delightful for you. Since I don’t know, I will try to spread your goodness to everyone I meet.

    Poor Tracy! Get well soon! And thank you for the link for the seven lies about homeschooling- so funny! I wish I had that to share when I was growing up.

      Yippee! Someone clicked on one of my links over there on the side!!!! Were you homeschooled?

      I am doing a little better today, but still not eating or getting to far from a toilet.

      I miss you and your little ones at gym…greatly!

      I am silly excited to go lay down and sleep on it for the first time!!!!!! I can’t even tell you what a difference it will be to not have back pain every morning from being shaped like a “u” all night long!
