Snake's Adjustment

I have a herniated disc in my spine. So I've been seeing the Chiropractor regularly the past couple weeks. The Snake wanted to get the "pop-corn" out of his back and neck too.

The good news: The Snake is feeling much better
The bad news: a gazillion squats, a bazillion lunges, a ton of Vitamin C, a bunch of Omega 3 fatty oils, adjustments, heating pads, a massage table, and who knows what else I've tried... I'm still in pain. It's been 6 weeks of now and nothing helps. It is always worse after I've been sitting or laying down for a long time. Getting out of bed in the morning, and the morning trip to the Ladies room are now daily tortures. I'm not a whiner, but ooouuuchchchch :(

Book of Mormon Challenge

The Brain turns 8 on February 5th. My baby is getting baptized (frownsmile). He is such an amazing reader it seemed fitting to challenge him to read the Book of Mormon before his baptism. Also, I am working on my personal progress and the value project for the new value Virtue is to read the Book of Mormon with your mom. Since I am a mom, and the Brain could benefit we have decided to read it together.
At 6 pages a day we will be done by February 5th. That isn't too bad, it only takes us 15-20 minutes to blow threw 6 pages together. Takes a little longer when there is discussion, but those nights are the best. I look forward to the bonding experience this will be.
Poor kid, I also want him to memorise the 4th article of faith. That's not too bad. My parents asked me, and it's not like I'm asking him to memorize all 13... (that challenge is to be completed before priesthood is received) -That's not church policy, just Mom policy ;)

Fall Fun

It HAD to be done. One the way home from picking up Ben from school we walk past a park. There is an amazing tree that has been dropping leaves for a few weeks now. As the leaves have been accumulating we have been just walking by. Until we just couldn't take it anymore.
We pushed them all up into a GINORMOUS pile and....
You would have done it too.
