Five on Saturday

1. We're having Kid Free Weekend 2014 this weekend. We were going to plan a trip but honestly we have so many things around the house that need to be done, that never get done, we decided to stay. We need to move No. 1 to a new room so we can separate the twins. We are doing some painting and cleaning some things out as well. 

2. I've discussed my cubital tunnel with my physical therapist some more and at this point she is not sure how much more she can help me without the surgery. Sigh. My follow up with the doctor is on July 2nd, and I will probably try to schedule surgery ASAP. My baby sitter whom I love is back home from college and if I can get in soon she can help me during the tough weeks. My PT does think I will recover quickly so fingers crossed. I'd rather give birth again. 

3. I painted my sitting room ceiling black and I LOVE it. I used Sherwin Williams Black Magic and it looks wonderful. Get it in flat finish. I'm painting the walls white and the room has some good crown molding. When I say that I painted it, I mean my sweet husband painted it. 

4. The Single Gal has been reading Nasty Gal's book #GIRLBOSS. She says it's a great read about how she started out and it's definitely going on my to-read list.

Okay, so maybe just four today. Hopefully I will have some pictures for you next week. The Single Gal and Em took off for a weekend in Savannah with Little A. I miss them dearly and wish I could have gone. There's always next time.

Going to enjoy some relaxing Saturday morning coffee....alone!!!

  1. I'm not sure how you feel about going to a chiropractor but they are able to do adjustments on you that are very minimal and you can avoid surgery. I have had great success with this. Good luck!

    1. Thanks Susanne! I appreciate the suggestion. My therapist truly believes my issue is strictly nerve related in that specific area and does not think it is a problem around my neck. I know it seems like an easier decision, but to find a chiropractor and to also carve out time with sitters etc to try that form of treatment as well is hard. I usually have all the kids with me for therapy as it is now, but it also seems impossible to regularly seek chiro treatment at this point. I appreciate hearing from others with cubital tunnel and what helped them though.
