Made It!

It has definitely been a wild week! Last Friday night, my husband had a gig.  He'd been having pain in his hip all week, but once you're on stage performing - all pain is gone!  I had to be up a 6:00 for "Writing Camp" for our 5th Graders (They were taking the State Writing Proficiency this week.).  We got home at about 2:30 in the morning and the pain was back.  I went to bed since I had to be up in a few hours.  That morning, while I was drying my hair, the door opened and my poor husband stood there, white as a sheet!  The only thing he could say was "I have to see a doctor". 
Now, I had a dilemma. I was supposed to be at school by 8:00, but my husband needed me too.  He said he could make it to Quick Care on his own and sent me off to school. Yes, I know, I won't be getting the Wife of the Year Award and I did feel really guilty.   He was diagnosed with sciatica pain and sent home with anti-inflammatory pills and pain-killers.  The poor guy was in SO much pain! 
So, I took over all of the household duties - the cooking, cleaning, laundry, etc. which made him crazy, since he normally does all of that.  Yes I know I am very spoiled!
The bottom line?  The 5th Graders made it through the Writing Proficiency (even the ones who missed one or more sessions!  Guess what this Literacy Specialist spent her week doing???), we ate decent meals(yes, I can cook!), the laundry is done, the house is clean, and most importantly, my husband is feeling better!!!!
We made it through this week and I'm looking forward to a better one.  Who, knows, maybe I'll even get something creative done!  You can be sure I'll post it if I do!

And why didn't I hear about that gig? Huh???

I used to have bad sciatica in my 30s. Once I started to do yoga (around my 40th birthday), the sciatica was gone and has not returned since. Yoga's the cure for a lot of things--have him give it a try!
