Slow Summer Start

This Summer is off and running....better yet lets call it limping.
I had this dream of free time with the kids but I was cautiously optimistic as I knew I had a 2 week stretch without a day off as well as the switch from days to Midnights.
Then Friday my back decided to give me a donkey kick. By Sunday I was in more pain than I can remember and every second I spent sitting in the dispatch chair made it seize up worse.
Monday I was able to get into the Chiropractor but by this point it was the worst he had ever seen me. I literally cried out as he attempted to get things back in line.
Today is Thursday and I am still eating Advil but finally feeling some relief.
Sleep.
You never understand how important it is until you aren't getting it. Like Breathing.
I have also not had more than 3 hours since Saturday. When I do sleep it is interrupted and full of pain.
This needs to be corrected and fast.
I will say my diet has been clean but I eat all hours of the day and night. No exercise obviously. I truly believe that is the only thing holding me together at this point. If I was still eating crap I would be screaming at the kids and crying. Yes, it is that bad when I eat crap.
The kids have been excellent. Understanding and helpful. We have managed to get into Aunt Cindy's pool a couple times even with the couple of weird strong storms that have hit.
Ok so the house could be cleaner and the lawn needs mowing but hey we are managing. The important things are they have clean bathing suits, food in their bellies and smiles on their faces.
I am happy to report I have some solid plans for child care so I can get some sleep and plans with friends to keep the soul happy.
