There's nothing that starts a week off worse, than a sore neck. Saturday night, I must have slept weird as I woke yesterday and could barely get out of bed for the pain in my neck. The whole right side of my neck and shoulder is just a giant knot of soreness. I don't know if I pulled a muscle, pinched a nerve or both. I just know that even the slightest movement of my head sends shooting pain down my neck and shoulder.
And the pain isn't much better today. I have a tiny bit more mobility of my head; but, not enough to really be productive at anything.
Of course, this doesn't go over well when I have a million things to do, including laundry and mopping floors. Sadly, I've put both tasks off for too long and the house looks like a bomb went off. It also doesn't help that Mr. Twingle is two weeks into his new job which has him working from home. I feel like my daily routine is under scrutiny and that makes me uncomfortable. Not that there's anything wrong with how Pickle and I go about our day; but, I feel like if I sit down at the computer too long or watch a complete TV show that I'm failing somehow as a mom and a wife.
I know I'm just overreacting. Having us both at home is an adjustment for everyone. Realistically, Mr. Twingle hasn't been home more than 2 or 3 weeks at a time in the sixteen years we've been together. There have always been periods of him travelling and the kids and I have our routine down to a science. Having Mr. Twingle home is going to take some getting used to and there will inevitably be some growing pains along the way.
