So my back's been hurting since Friday. It wasn't like my back was out or anything, just sufficiently twinge-y to get me good every so often and be a general nuisance otherwise.I went for a walk around the neighborhood Saturday afternoon, and that actually seemed to help a bit. Sunday it was unhappy again, but I was still able to move around.

Then this morning, the pain moved into my left hip. All of it. It's persistent and it's so painful it's hard to walk, stand, sit or even lay down much of the time.I'm unsure if I'm falling apart and should see an orthopedic, or if I just slept on it wrong, or if sitting in the chair all day yesterday playing WoW was unwise.

Also, I've realized that I actually prefer to read on my Kindle now. That's quite a revelation since I was dead set against them and considered myself somewhat of a purist when it came to books. But it's just so damn convenient. I don't have to use a hand to keep it open to read. I can set it down on the table and eat while reading only needing a finger to tap to turn the page. I can read at night, in bed just using the back light turned to a dim setting. And - here's the best part - I will never run out of bookshelf space. Oh, I still insist on paper versions of reference and graphics books. The one book I read on my Kindle that included a map the page was laughably unreadable. But yeah. I like reading on the Kindle.

Both boys are sick. Jake got the snots first yesterday afternoon, then Erik started. Of course Erik's about to cut the two bottom front teeth so he's drooling like crazy too. At this point, he reminds me of Moist from Dr. Horrible. Poor baby is miserable, which made for a less than stellar night. Jake's trucking right along and his only concession is to stop every now and again and wipe his nose on his sleeve or ask for a tissue. (The former more often than I'd like.)

Of course, I now am feeling scratchy throated and stopped up nosed myself. :(

Yesterday morning Jake and Erik woke up at 5:30am. Jake had passed out on the couch around 4 the afternoon before, and slept until he woke everyone up. I kept him in bed as long as I could and then brought him downstairs to watch TV and eat breakfast while I cleaned up myself and Erik and got Jason up.

We went to a local town center that has a fountain where we were meeting [livejournal.com profile] greenstripe and her kids. We had fun for a while and then an entire daycare showed up the same time Lori did. I called another nearby town with a fountain that was more appropriate to play in but there were 2 daycares there. We decided to move anyway since the other town center has an ice cream shop.

Although it was very crowded the kids had a blast (Jake could literally stay there all day). It was in the low 90's and there's not much shade but I did what I could to keep Erik and I cool (without getting wet). After getting the boys in dry clothes we had ice cream. Overall a lovely morning.

Not long after I got home I realized I may have gotten too hot as a migraine hit me hard. Before long I was throwing up, with Jake in the other room asking me what that noise was. The third time I threw up he came in to watch and then told me how disgusting it was. LOL The fourth time he was telling me not to throw up and make that noise. *snort*

Then he disappeared for a while. I got up to get new ice packs and when I came downstairs I discovered a blanket of white over everything in my living room. EVERYTHING. Jake had gotten a full shaker of baby powder and emptied in the living room. The chairs, couch, floor, tv stand, all of his toys - hell even the CAT had baby powder on him. I kind of stood there, stunned, and then took what little remained in the shaker and put it up. Got my ice packs. Called Jason and told him I needed reinforcements and to come home. And then I went back to bed.

I wish now I had taken a picture, but I didn't. I asked Jason later if he had thought to but of course he didn't. Jason vacuumed a couple of times but I'm still going to have a lot of cleaning to do today.

I'm also going to see if I can find a neurologist. I need a new GP too. I hate Dr. shopping, but I seriously need to go see if they've come out with anything new I can try for these damn headaches.

I have 24 ghosts who have taken up residence in the maple tree, with a small graveyard below. Two jack-o-lanterns glowing on the front porch and a ton of decorations inside. The boy's costume is mostly done and I'll spend tomorrow prepping what I can for the party.

The only drawback is that I didn't dodge the cold bullet and my tonsil is so swollen I feel like I've swallowed a golf ball. Other than that everything's great. LOL
