I'M SOOOOO OUTTA HERE!

I must sound like the whiningest, complainingist, pain in the ass on god's green Earth. Well, you know what? Too bad. My blog, my rules.

This week was - how shall I put this? Ummm, let's see. Oh! I know! Shitty.

Husband took a fall and totally f-ed his hand up and threw his back out. Which sounds like he should be the one who gets to have the shitty week, right? Uh - NO!

Husband is flat on his back for days. So you know what that means? I get to do his stuff and my stuff. And I get to go fetch him stuff. And I get to hear him detail the levels and duration of his pain in every position he is able to exist in. Which, thankfully, is not a long list. No really, thank god it is not a long list. The short list is so much more than enough.

I'm going away with my girlfriends. He's getting better at hobbling around. In the event of a fire Maddy knows to roll him out the house like a log. I'll not be back until I have been nurtured and fed and loved back from the emotional brink. If that doesn't happen for six months, so be it. I'm aiming for three days. I'll let you know.

Oh dang, not fun at all, but thank goodness for girlfreinds. I hope hubby gets feeling better so you can all recover from all this. Best of luck.

Thanks for all of the wonderful support! I am much better - time away was well spent.

BTW - I totally would have let you all come! And then you, too would have become addicted to the game Catch Phrase. Sweet Baby Jesus, it is delightful!

I will never forget the week my husband spent recovering from hernia surgery. It's a wonder we're still married.

Good luck to you :)
