Can't Move

I did way too much today and now I'm in serious pain. My lower back, hips and legs are really hurting...especially my left side. I decided to stay home today instead of going to watch the kids play soccer as the kitchen needed some cleaning. I was really only going to mop the floor but when I looked closer at the table, I decided it really needed a good cleaning. When I got done with that, I noticed that the chairs could use a good once over. When those were done...which was no small feat since there are 10 of them, I decided that the window sills and wall behind the table could use cleaning. Cleaned those and a few other corners of the walls, wiped down the refrigerator, compactor and dishwasher and then I finally got around to mopping the floor...about 2 hrs after I originally started out to do it. I swept and washed the floor, then swept the hallway and stairs. Unfortunately, I couldn't sweep up the dirt I'd swept up from the hallway and stairs as the dustpan was across the kitchen and the floor was still wet....not good planning on my part. So I left the piles figuring I would get them when the floor dried. I then decided our bathroom needed some cleaning so I got halfway done with that before I realized that I just couldn't do anymore. My back and legs were hurting so much I could barely move. And by this point, my kitchen was dry but I couldn't bend down to sweep up the dirt into the dustpan...I hurt too bad. Thankfully Alex did that when he got back from the field.

So, I decided now was a good time to sit down and take it easy. I pulled out Quaker Mystery Sampler and was able to get Part 5 finished up. The colors are a little messed up in the pic but I didn't feel like fooling with it tonight. Only one more part to go...the alphabet at the top which shouldn't take too long to do. I'm going to switch back to working on Mother's Bliss for awhile, though, and then I'll come back to the sampler although I might through a mini rr in between to work on.

Other than that, it was a quiet day. You might want to check on me tomorrow to see if I'm able to move. I have grand plans of cleaning the boys bathroom and doing laundry but we'll see if I can even get out of bed in the morning. ;)

Oh, take it easy! as I read somewhere this week: Dust can wait!

Vicki said...

Ok, ok...you ladies are right. I'm able to move today although somewhat gingerly, so I think I'll put the rest of my cleaning plans on hold and just take it easy today. I'm going to do some stitching and then watch the football games this afternoon with my sports nut 2nd son. LOL

Nesting is a BAD habit that should be avoided, did you know the baby probably won't care that the table and chairs are clean? Rest up, get lots of stitching done and take care of yourself!
Oh yea, I'm new to your blog but I am enjoying myself greatly.
