It's 4 am and I'm lying in bed while very cold rain drizzles down outside, unfortunately not snow, but who knows, maybe that will still happen! Anyway this is great too--it's super cozy in the house, the heater keeps coming on, and we're piled under blankets with Fia snuggled close. The deliciousness of winter!

Thursday I threw out my neck while doing dishes, though it started the day before when I lifted our bed with my shoulder. I was trying to pull a rug under the bed and I needed to lift the center support of the bed frame--before wedging my shoulder under the bed I thought to myself "This is how you get hurt," and then the next morning I woke up with stiffness in my shoulders and then BAM! While turning to look at Malko who was making a fort in the kitchen cabinets I felt the right side of my neck seize up and oh god, it was SO painful! Hot burning pain radiating out of my neck every time I moved a millimeter! All I could do was whimper!

I spent the rest of the day in bed and that was fine because I wasn't in a housework mood anyway, being burned out from all the painting and rearranging I did in our room the week before. So I just laid there and felt sorry for myself. Joedy came home early to help with the kids and that was nice, even if totally necessary given my immobilization. My neck still hurts but I think I'll try stretching today, get back in action and show it who's the boss!

Back to our bedroom: it's wonderful in here now. I painted the walls white and the floor purple, and then made curtains from this purple velvet fabric I found at the thrift store last year, and hung this great rug on the wall behind the bed. Then a few more things, and now it's the nicest room in the house--so cozy and colorful and fun! Just delicious! Like a mug of hot chocolate brimming with baby marshmallows! So drinkable!

Speaking of hot chocolate with marshmallows, that sounds pretty good right now. Only problem is, we're out of milk. Maybe I could use rainwater? 

I guess I could just go buy some milk.

But it would be so much more FUN to make the hot chocolate with rainwater!!

WHAT TO DO?!?!?!

To be cont.'d.
