Let me be a nurse, I'm not crippled - just in pain

My back still isn't better. X-ray showed that I don't have a disc herniation, just a sprain. And while that's goodish news, it doesn't mean that I'm in any less pain. I've been on modified for about 3 weeks, and it's completely boring! Up to this point they won't let me do ANYTHING nursing related - hell not even vital signs! It's ridiculous and is driving me crazy. On friday I went and spoke with the oc-health person I've been dealing with so that we can get a plan in play that will tag me back into the nursing ring.

How do I know if I can do all my regular duties if they won't let me do any of them?! Thankfully the oc-health lady helped me out and today my physician signed off on the tiered/staged plan to get me back to work. Unfortunately, it's according to my schedule at work which every second week I'm off for 7-10 days (which is great if I didn't need the money and the ability to pick up extra shifts) which means that I don't go back to working full duty and the ability to pick up more shifts until Aug 10th.

On another note, my son told me today that he only wants to come and visit for 4 weeks this summer. It's crap and I'm pissed off about it. My feelings are hurt about it all. It sucks that my hometown and everyone there is being chosen over me and the ppl down here. My heart aches cuz I know that I got screwed in the court system and there wasn't anything that I could do about it at the time because I didn't have the finances to take A-hole to court about this all, and in the end I paid for it. It sucks, sucks, sucks!!! I want to cry and cry but it's not going to make the situation any better. UGH!!!!

The in-laws here went house looking last week and found the perfect house - it's 4 bedrooms upstairs and then an apartment with 2 bedrooms in the basement. And while hubby, kiddos and I will be confined to the basement again, at least I will see the light of day in there because the set up is that of an apartment and I will no longer have to share a room with the kids! How glorious is that?! Unfortunately, it's contingent on the selling of the current house which means we have been UBER busy getting rid of the clutter and junk around the house and having it staged. Which is easier said than done when you have a 3 yr old running around. The other crappy part is that it doesn't keep clean seeing that the 3 yr old thinks she can make messes everywhere (not that I expected anything less but still aggravating none the less) and lastly, the showings of this house are driving me crazy because we can't be in the house when there are agents or potential buyers in the house which = we must vacate to SOMEWHERE for the HOURS that it takes.

This weekend we had to be out of the house for 8hrs on Saturday and 9hrs on Sunday. Goodness that's a long time to be somewhere else, especially if you don't have close family around that you can just "drop" in on seeing as some of these hours were made as a last minute thing. Same thing happened today as well. I really do hope this house sells quickly so that we can get back to our regular duties!
