I just thought I would check in and let y'all know that I'm still alive. Somehow I've thrown out my back and have been lying horizontal on my sofa for the passed couple of days. It appears lifting L'il E (or should I say Big E) has left me with a very weak low back and I can barely walk. When I do, I look like an 80 year riddled with osteoporosis.

That being said, I've been spending a lot of time surfing the web so I thought I would share some of my finds. Enjoy the links and your weekend. I'll be here lying around...sigh.

Watching this made my back hurt more, but got me excited for the ski/snowboard season.

Knitting goodness at Pickles. I just love looking at everything on this site.

Cool custom holiday cards at Pinhole Press. I've ordered from them before and the paper quality is top-notch.

Reading this reminds me of how heavy Dave was as a babe… I feel for you! I’ve had days of not being able to stand up straight for sure. How is your back now? Are you going to physio? Has anyone checked if your abs have split (you can check by lying on your back, lifting your head up, and feeling above and below and in your belly button for a split)? I started going to the gym just so I could lift my kids! Also I have to always remind myself to use my legs, not my back (whenever possible, getting children in and out of cars, or cribs, makes this impossible though).
