R-E-L-I-E-F

Ahhhhhh.....I went to the chiropractor today and found some more relief in my symptoms since my fall. He did a slightly different adjustment on my sacrum from what he had been doing and I am feeling better by the hour.

Thanks everyone for praying--I know it made a HUGE difference. I was feeling pretty good yesterday and knew that I would be fine. The chiropractor I go to is very nice and so helpful. His wife works the desk and their sweet daughter is often there when I go. When I told them that I had fallen and had called on Friday to find out they were closed they were both apologetic (like it was their fault!) and gave me their cell phone number in case something like that happened again and I needed help on a day they are closed. Apparently they used to give out a cell phone number on their answering machine but people started abusing their ability to get in touch with them so they don't do that anymore. I promised I wouldn't abuse their number. They are pregnant with their second baby and also going to the same birth center I am going to. They are also Christians so when I told them I had people praying for me they were glad to hear that God had been answering!

One thing I love about Tuesdays is that I get to go to the chiropractor. It is one of the few things that I do "just for me". It is something that feels luxurious because I know it is taking care of me--kind of like a massage but not quite as extravagant. Sometimes Jon and the boys will drop me off and go run an errand but it still feels like a special time. Today I went by myself and drove in the car with no music on. I enjoyed the silence and allowed my mind to wander to whatever it wanted to. After my appointment I walked to the preschool program we are wanting Ewan to go to this year to drop off the registration. It was about 70 degrees and cloudy. Perfect weather to walk in. I took my time and enjoyed the walk. On my way back to the car I stopped at Starbucks and got my favorite; a tall, decaf (when pregnant) caramel macchiato and again enjoyed a silent drive home. It was just 1 hour all to myself and I loved every minute of it!

When I got home Jon was helping one of the guys from the "frat house" (a house of single seminarian guys) load his stuff onto a moving truck. He just graduated and is off to San Diego. The kids were at the neighbors playing. I went to our friends to go get the kids and we ended up chatting for a bit. They weren't sure what they were going to do for dinner so we invited their family to our house. I made enchiladas last night and had plenty of food for our two families. We had a great dinner. It was the icing on the cake for my special Tuesday afternoon and evening.

Now I get to spend the rest of the night working on making superhero capes for Ewan's birthday party this Sunday. Being that I am not very proficient at sewing this should be an adventure--wish me luck!

I am glad to hear that you're treating yourself. Seeing as your life is about to get that much busier - it's good to work that in whenever you can. :)
I'm even happier / thankful you're feeling better!
As far as SM capes go, if all else fails (and i'm sure it won't) - use a towel and a clothes pin!
