As you all know my husband and I are having a few problems. Mainly due to him keeping his female friend who has caused problems around. Well over the week it was rough. I had a hard time keeping my temper in check and that didn't help matters any.
Into the weekend things started looking up. He had to work most of the day Saturday. To try and keep my mind off things I thoroughly cleaned the house. I even cleaned the couch where Lobo likes to sleep (drool) on it during the day while we're both working. I also steam cleaned the floors. I'll tell you what, even though it leaks a little, I love the steam mop from Bissell! I also did all the laundry, including his. He normally does his own laundry. He actually spent most of the evening with me. I don't even think he was on the computer for an hour. Normally I didn't mind, but it got to where he was spending more and more time on there. It used to be we got home, had dinner together, then we both spent about an hour on the computer before settling in for some quality time together. I'm hoping this week we'll be back on that schedule again.
Sunday was a good day too. He didn't spend hardly any time at all on the computer, unless he got on when I took a nap thanks to a migraine. We even worked out in the yard for a little bit together. We had some time to reconnect I think and that's probably what we needed. Funny thing is, on Friday I was upset because he didn't want to go away for a night with me. Turned out we had that time I wanted at home after all. I think he finally realizes why I was so upset and that I really need him to be there for me. I think we're going to be okay. At least I really hope so!

So today my energy is low, my cravings are high, and it's that time of the month. Needless to say I caved and got a candy bar this morning. I'm still nursing the soda from yesterday. But at least I managed to find a healthier alternative for lunch than the McDonald's chicken nuggets I was craving. And I won't lie, I didn't get them because the line at the drive-thru was too long! But I'm not going to beat myself up over it too much. I've been doing pretty good up until the last two days. I'll just work harder to control the cravings over the weekend and into next week.

At some point while working at my last job, I hurt my back. I dealt with it for two weeks before I did anything about it. Partly because I was thinking I'd just overdone it a little and would be feeling fine in a few days. Partly in fear of being fired because of it, since I did get hurt on the job. I didn't have money for the doctor at the time, since I wasn't even working 20 hours per week. My husband's boss had insurance for me, but with a $30 doctor copay and $15 for prescription, I didn't have the money. So I had them file a worker's comp claim on me. Something I'd never done before, and never would have thought I'd do. But when it comes to back pain, you can only ignore it for so long.
The doctor drug tested me before he would do anything else for me. Then I had x-rays done and nothing seemed wrong. Nothing cracked or broken anyway. Although I honestly believe something was pinched. He prescribed me some steroids and some good pain meds and sent me on my way. I'm glad I went when I did, because by the time I got home from the doctor that night I was hurting way worse. I went home, took my meds, and crawled into bed. I woke up in the middle of the night, and I absolutely could not get out of bed. My husband leaves for work early, so I didn't wake him. He found me half way to the edge of the bed when he woke up. He helped me up and helped me to the wall so I could walk myself to the bathroom. Then he took all my pillows and blanket to the living room where I camped out on the couch for the next few days. Eventually I felt better.
But every since then... Every once in awhile my back will start bothering me again. Nothing like when I hurt it, but it still hurts me enough. Enough that I can't bend over. Enough that we went to a bowling party, and I just watched. I suck at bowling, but I enjoy it. But for fear of causing more pain, I watched. With my new job I now have my own insurance. Pretty good as for as medical coverage. Not so much for prescriptions though. So I'm thinking it's time to go have a visit with a chiropractor. I went once a week when I was in the Army. Granted it was for hip pain, but still. I got out of the Army in 2007 and haven't seen a chiropractor since, so I guess I'm well overdue for a visit. I went once a month for a few years prior to joining the Army also. When I had insurance that covered it at least.
Prior to hurting my back on the job, I had discovered the joys of a Nintendo Wii. I'd heard so much about them that I decided I wanted one. I found one of those online catalogs that let you pay as you go, and by golly I got myself an awesome Christmas present! I was considering getting Zumba, but instead I hesitantly bought the first Just Dance game. Oh my gosh, I loved it! Now don't get me wrong, I'm a white girl with no rhythm, and you wouldn't catch me in public dancing unless I'm drinking, which I don't do. But dangit I loved that game! I now have 1, 2, and 3. If my back ever lets me get back to it, I will buy 4 also. I cannot wait to start feeling better so I can get back to them. If you love music, and love making a fool out of yourself in the comforts of your own home, I highly recommend the Just Dance games! I definitely got a workout from them!
