Issues

Sarah here. There have been two major issues this weekend; one has been on-going, and is actually just getting fixed this weekend, which motivated me to blog about it. 

I'll begin with the toilet. Here is what happens when you flush the toilet.

Our little fountain right in our own home. Thankfully, Jim's dad works with plumbing equipment and is able to help us get it fixed! Thanks, Mike!

The other issue this weekend was my back. I have this spot in the middle of my lower back that starts hurting, and pretty much paralyzes me with pain when it does. It's hurt really bad one other time before, when I was putting together our kitchen island. I was out for the rest of the evening and most of the next day. Heating pad and advil were the cure. Yesterday, in my indoor soccer game, we only had three players show up, against five, and it didn't work out for us. It was a really good team, and only having three players gave me a good workout. First, I had to block a shot with the inside of my knee; an hour later, I still had a bruise, and it hasn't gone away yet, even a day later. If you look closely, you can see the imprint of the ball on my leg. OUCH! 
Then, a girl who wasn't very good (not that I am some superstar) missed the ball and kicked my leg, which twisted me around and something pulled in that spot in my back. I've been out since 6 pm yesterday. Still not better, but on my way. Maybe I am getting old...

Yikes, I can see the ball imprint!

And I hope your back feels much better when you wake up today.
