One step forward, two steps back...

Today has been a reasonably tolerable day. I've done a great deal more standing, sitting, and walking than I've managed in nearly a week. I even got through two separate grocery shopping trips in preparation for Great Big Dinner Day in a couple days without needing to immediately lie down on the couch for hours to recuperate.

The reason we decided to get shopping taken care of today is because we'd planned to take a trip to see Victoria, B.C., tomorrow. This plan has been derailed by an unwell LMX. Poor kid has been feverish for the better part of the afternoon and evening.

One comes back up, another goes down...thanks fall/winter transition! Though mine likely has zilch to do with weather or seasonal changes. And, honestly, LMX could very well just be getting some new pearly whites for his grill. Still, always comes at this time of year (first bad back episode was last November), so I will curse it anyhow.

Now we're all prepared for our turkeys, dressing, gravy, green bean casserole, mashed potatoes, and pumpkin cheesecake and have another day to relax before the cooking frenzy begins. Silver linings, people, that's what it's all about.
