Top 10 things I learned today...

  1. Sleep is good for a bad back. Slouching in a chair is not.
  2. Stealing the recliner right after a kid has been in it, while it's still warm, feels good on the back.
  3. Skipping down the stairs because your back is starting to feel better makes it feel worse.
  4. Having pre-cooked meat packaged in Food Saver bags in the freezer makes dinner a snap when you don't feel like cooking.
  5. When one has a bad back and a cold, it is in that person's best interest to brace oneself before letting out a good German sneeze.
  6. Eating a higher carb meal for breakfast will make the diabetic with a bad back have to use the restroom frequently. Might be better to stick to low carbs if that diabetic wants to stay in the chair for longer periods of time.
  7. Kids really do help out more often when Mom plays the hurt back card.  "Sweetie, can you go downstairs and get Mommy a Diet Coke? My back really hurts and I can't do the stairs right now."
  8.  It also helps when the dishwasher needs to be emptied.
  9. Squeezer hugs (aka bear hugs) can hurt.
  10. My family is awesome!  (Of course I already knew that!)
