Step 5: arrive home at 8:30pm after leaving home at 7am. Continue to ignore increasingly worse back pain.

Step 7: Cry...Cry to Jesus...Cry to sleeping husband
Step 8: Move to couch at 1:30 and keep crying.
Step 9: Blog at 3:37 am and wait for daylight and pray for heavy drugs to be in your very near future!
