Merry Christmas To All. And To All, A Good Night....

It's Christmas Day. I've done very little today. After spending most of this month exerting myself and pushing my body and mind beyond the limits, it has finally caught up with me. I could tell I was heading in that direction yesterday evening. Chronic. Lower. Back. Pain. Despite taking ibuprofen and sipping wine, by the end of the evening, I was limping and I saw stars when I had to stand up straight. I slept horribly last night. By 6 a.m. I knew I wasn't going to be able to go to our neighbor friend's house for Christmas waffles with Lisa, Kim, and Alex.

In addition, Lobo's single hind leg was tired out. He had trouble getting from point A to point B within our home. He didn't perch himself on our legs or jump down from the sofa. We didn't know if it was a Lyme Disease flare-up or just being on the go the past few days. He's like a little human kid. He doesn't want to miss anything when there's too much excitement. He overexerts himself.

We gave him his canine pain reliever and he snuggled with me on the sofa most of the day. When I moved to the bed, he snuggled with Lisa on the sofa.

We did absolutely nothing today except cleaning up from our Christmas Eve party and making a simple dinner for the kids and us. 

That. Was. It.

That's okay.

It's been a busy month. Lisa has to work tomorrow and it's "early in" which means she has to get up at 3 a.m. In addition, we're house/pet sitting for one of our neighbor friends.

I have a ton of work stuff to catch up on and I need to do housework and take all of the indoor Christmas stuff down.

I'm adamant about taking the indoor Christmas stuff down the day after Christmas. By this time, I want our home back to "normal."

But, for today, I'm doing nothing.


On that note, Merry Christmas to all, and to all, a good night.
