Actually, the boys caught bugs and I swung under the gazebo. A couple of weeks ago, I got a portable stereo system for my iPod, which was on the half price rack at Target, which has stereo sound and a sub-woofer (the stereo, not Target). Since hearing Margaritaville this morning and feeling so wonderful, I downloaded several songs from iTunes and sat out blasting them in the backyard. I could just close my eyes, swing, sing along, and hear my boys laughing and running in the backyard.
What a great day!
(And no, I'm not saying that because the doctor loaded me up with a steroid shot, Ultram ER, and Darvocet this morning for my back, although that helped)
Tomorrow, despite my back pain, is my first day of Tae Kwon Do in the mixed class with Michael and Matthew. I don't know how they will handle being in a class not geared COMPLETELY towards children, and I'm honestly not sure I'll be able to keep up. But I am REALLY looking forward to trying!
