Hello!  We are battling one child being sick, Mother having a neck that won't work and Dad getting a new job 1.5 hrs from home.  We are going to have to come to some new sense of normal for our family.  Hopefully I can continue to blog and create, as I had been getting good at it (if you ask me, I was doing pretty good!).
Having a locked neck is a definite damper to sewing and computer work.  I think that may be what has me locked up.  I need to order a back stretcher that I can lay in or sit in to put my spine back in proper position to relieve the tension.  Any suggestions would be appreciated!
I've had to let Dad drive my little VW Jetta TDI.  I'm not thrilled, but so happy that we have it for him.  Otherwise, we wouldn't really be able to manage this new normal very long.  He'll get 50+ mpg.  Using about 11-12 gallons per week to go 160 miles per day.  These are rough figures, please.  I am an engineer who LOVES math, so I know they aren't right.  Don't even get out your calculator to check me.  BUT, they are a ROUGH estimate of where he'll be in the fuel usage.  Not too shabby.  I anticipate it costing us around $45 per week.  Nice.
On the other hand, I get the mini van back.  18-19 miles to the gallon, with me driving 25 miles or so to work x twice a day = 2.6+ gallons per day = averageing it at $4/gallon = about $10 a day to drive that van!  UGH.  Double UGH. and YUCK.
We better get our taxes done and find another Jetta TDI and quick!  :)
So, I hope to unlock my neck and get back to creating and updating the websites, etc.  I'll try to learn my lesson and take breaks to stretch out so I fatigue my muscles and lock up again!
Good luck in all of your endeavors and God Bless!
