Cheater post (thanks, G!)

Popped over to Gaylen's blog and found this, so naturally I had to have a go for myself. I'd gotten so used to the usual "virgin attendant at a sacrifice" meaning, this little bit of hoo-doo with the letter-play was fun. And a welcome break for y'all, from having to read my regular drivvel.

What Camilla Means

You are very open. You communicate well, and you connect with other people easily.

You are a naturally creative person. Ideas just flow from your mind.

A true chameleon, you are many things at different points in your life. You are very adaptable.
(yes, I like to call them "survival skills")

You are usually the best at everything ... you strive for perfection.

You are confident, authoritative, and aggressive.
(Melly calls it bossy, and she blames 'Boris' entirely)
You have the classic "Type A" personality.

You are confident, self assured, and capable. You are not easily intimidated.

You master any and all skills easily. You don't have to work hard for what you want.

You make your life out to be exactly how you want it. And you'll knock down anyone who gets in your way!

You tend to be pretty tightly wound. It's easy to get you excited... which can be a good or bad thing.

You have a lot of enthusiasm, but it fades rather quickly. You don't stick with any one thing for very long.

You have the drive to accomplish a lot in a short amount of time. Your biggest problem is making sure you finish the projects you start.
(this bit was pretty spot-on)

You are relaxed, chill, and very likely to go with the flow.

You are light hearted and accepting. You don't get worked up easily.

Well adjusted and incredibly happy, many people wonder what your secret to life is.
(Xanax, duh.)

Really, if you know me, you know I cannot be both "tightly wound" (which I am) and "relaxed, chill, and go with the flow" (hardly ever, unless there is a food bribe involved), but I am one of those pesky Pisces...
Read an amazing book this evening. As a home school mom, I'm obligated to pre-read the books we push at the children. Tonight's read was "Gathering Blue", by Lois Lowry. Good stuff. I might have to do a 'read-aloud', though I suspect the boys would get fidgety... not enough blood and guts for their taste. The six-year-old dragged home a fine collection of those awful 'Goosebumps' books. At this point I'm willing to let it go, because we just want him interested in the written word. I'm getting him a copy of the 'Dangerous Book for Boys' for the Easter bag. The baskets have been put aside for the year, as this is the first year we'll be on the go for Holy Week. I'm frightened enough at being held captive with five kids for hour after hour , without having to worry about them trashing their Longaberger Easter baskets. (I just did a tally... we're looking at about 32 hours of travel time in the course of the week. The Xanax is already packed.)
Sorry for the cheat post, but I still have laundry chores, and more books to pre-read, if I'm going to keep pace with the eldest larval-stage bookworm. Today was a bit of a booger,and I'm looking forward to a good night's sleep... hopefully with none of today's headache form yesterday's "adjustment". I'm sooo not into getting things cracked. The lower back pain is strangely gone, though. I'm supposed to have another go next week. I may just chicken out, if this head/neck ache persist. Or take to the bottle. (Oh, either. Bourbon, Xanax... it's all good.) Latah, knittas.

That was a fun diversion, Cami. I'm off to try it myself . . . oh, but after I mention that your description matches how my chriopractor visits usually go. Back pain disappears almost immediately, but neck pain and headaches usually take a day or two (those muscles don't like to relax into their "proper" state, and take a little while to get there). So, don't give up on the chiro just because your neck isn't instantly better. A heating pad, or an icy-hot rub (cayenne/wintergreen ointment from the health food store is fabulous), does wonders.

Have a great trip!

I agree annlea. Don't give up on the Chiro quite yet. I really need to get back to one because I have this pesky rib that likes to get out of place and it hurts like a mofo. My neck and shoulders always took a little longer and I got the same achey feeling you are having...but after a few days (and a few weeks of repeated adjustments) it's great!

Just wait till you see what I am finally making with my misbehavin' yarn. It's a sock..and it's going to be gorgeous :) I'm so excited!! Woohoo!!!

Ah yes, the goosebump-book-dilemma. That problem existed in my day too. I was a book snob too, but in the end several of us moms just decided that the important thing was to get those kids reading. Didn't do much good with my two -- their reading father and mother can't quite figure out how they grew up to not be readers. I hold out hope for their adulthood though -- after all the excitement of marriage and career choices when live slips into boredom, perhaps they'll turn to books afterall!
