Home Alone

What would you do if you were home alone for 5 whole days? For moms, this has a special meaning - no dinners, no dishes, no bedtimes, no sharing the tv... just 5 peaceful days to do whatever you want. Well, I got my wish, sort of.

It wasn't the plan. Right now, I should be spending 4 days at the toy fair in Germany, monitoring industry trends, finding new suppliers - and my personal favorite - finding the worst toy of 2010. Since I was going to be gone, David planned to take the kids skiing. Part 2 of this plan is underway... but Part 1...
Somehow, I ended up with a serious back problem that stated last week, and doesn't look likely to go away any time soon. The diagnosis is a "cervical herniated disc" which means a very sore back and shoulder area, with pain radiating down my arm. My Sit-on-It beanbag chair is my saviour, and I have spent more nights on it than in bed. Days are spent watching reruns and favorite films.
I guess I should get used to taking it easy - seems as though I will be doing a lot of that over the next few weeks... and spend my time planning how to avoid this problem in the future!
