I hear a "slap slap slap" as she crawled into the office to find me. She crawled up merrily to my feet, then sat back and held her hands up, smiling and laughing. How could I resist? Picking her up, though, I pulled my back out. Nothing makes you feel older than a sore back - you shuffle like an old man, you move deliberately, every little movement risks a crazy twinge of pain. But I still had to go in to work, we had an urgent issue. And I have to keep working today, as a matter of fact.
I'm a slow moving target this morning, for sure. I am very grateful that I have a job that lets me telecommute when necessary. And I have a partner in the homey endeavors, though she's worn a bit ragged by our energetic and loathe-to-sleep daughter today. It's heating-pad-on-the-couch time for me...if the lil' sproggin will let me.
With any luck we'll close on the house soon. I hope we can remember all the things we said we'd do "when we buy a house." That's my new hobby, basically, home improvements. I'm looking forward to it! We've got a great base to start from, and it will be even better after some repairs and improvements!
