Well...I was at about a 7-8 for most of the day but took an pain med for the extra pain...so it is starting to settle down a bit, thankfully. I pretty much knew it would be a rough time this week. We went on a 4 day/3 night camping trip. It was abnormally cold (40's) and sleeping in a tent. We had 2 days of mud runs which last for about 6 hours. Lots of overdoing it between the 2 hour drive, setting up, breaking down and playing with my 3 yr old granddaughter. Even tho it pretty much kicked my tail...I would not have traded it for the world. The only part I could wish to change would have been more time with my granddaughter. Only got about an hour with her since she had to go to her dad's for the weekend. She is autistic so you never know from one visit to the next how she is doing but it was wonderful. She was all smiles and arms up for gma to pick her up and snuggle and giggle. It was the best medicine I could have. So...even tho the pain is pretty overwhelming at times...it was worth the great weekend. I figure i would still hurt even if I was home so I may as well enjoy the last big weekend of the summer.
