Well, I did promise an update, didn't I? Stupid me. LOL

As I'm writing this, my lower back is in intense pain. I'm not sure exactly why this is happening, but this is almost unbearable. I'm thinking this is because of a new pillow I purchased last week. It's one of those foam neck-supporting orthopedic pillows, the kind that slowly "smooshes" down to fit the contour of your body. When I initially go to bed, it's super comfortable and very supportive. But I think that it flattens out as the night wears on and, by morning, my neck doesn't have as much support as it should, which results in back pain for me.

So right now, I have a bunch of naproxen in me as well as 5mg of valium. I thought for sure I'd conk out, but I haven't. I'm wide awake. The pain isn't as intense as it was this afternoon, but it's still there.

In other news, work has been incredibly stressful. I'm getting ready to go on vacation on the 19th, so I'm feverishly training my two backups as fast as I can prior to my departure. Unfortunately, they're new in their positions, so in addition to having to deal with all their new duties, they have to learn mine. Ugh. But I'm hopeful that this will all work out.

Mom is looking forward to seeing me again...she's been telling me everyday. She's also been crying a lot more during my daily calls to her...she misses me a lot. I wish we were geographically closer, but this is the financial lot we were dealt: she has to stay in Canada as it's the only place where we can afford assisted living. Right now, her studio apartment in an assisted living facility costs $1600 a month. Here in the States, the same arrangement would cost us upward of $3000 a month. Big difference.

Anyway, this is as much of an update as I can muster. My back is screaming and I need to go lie down.

Thanks for reading.
