Needed – One Friend

July 31st, 2008 · 2 Comments

I so much want to call someone and chat right now.  It’s not that I have no friends in the world, it’s just that the two or three I’m closest to aren’t home right now.  Cursed jobs that take my friends away from their telephones!

My back is bad again.  I twisted it a couple days ago searching for a book that Alexis had lost.  (Somehow I managed to pull a muscle in my lower back by climbing her bunk bed and trying to avoid hitting my head on the ceiling fan.)  Anyway, I’m limited in what I can do which is frustrating.  The older three folded my clean towels for me (folding is a chore they still enjoy, especially towels which they can do without help), and the younger two switched my laundry with me supervising.  Since I have the front load washer and dryer now they can pretty much do it themselves (though half of the time that it takes for them to put the wet clothes in the dryer is spent pushing the button that turns the light on and off inside the drum).  Anyway, they were a good help for the laundry chores, but now that that’s going I can’t think of much else that I can take on with or without their help.  I have cleaning I want to do, but it all involves bending or twisting. 😛  Well, maybe it’ll be feeling well enough in another day or so to get more things done.  In the meantime… look out ebay!  I’m on the hunt for clothes for the new girls!

    And you see the value of a blog? One of my best friends from college saw my post and called me to chat. 🙂
