Just Like Daddy

We spent the weekend re hauling the house and working on projects...the wood fence, working on the yard, cleaning this, and cleaning that, organizing the kids closets, changing the oil in the truck. Okay, that last one wasn't necessarily a family project, but at least one of us really took note and has been trying to keep the momentum of it going into Monday.....
Here is Nate imitating Daddy under the truck yesterday. He claims to fixing Juliana's "truck!" I love it!
All else is well in Agliata land. I received the results from the MRI I had done last week: two bulging disks in my lower back. They suggested cortizone injections to deal with the pain. Sounds okay, but when asked what caused it, or what I can do to prevent it in the future, the nurse was a bit dumbfounded. "Hum, good question, I'll have to talk to the doctor and get back to you," she offered. Do we really live in a world where it is all about treating the symptoms and not about getting to the root cause in addition?
More later!
Love, Kate

It looks like Mr. Fix-it Nate was doing a great job fixing toys!

And yes, the Dr.'s no longer solve your ailments, they just want us to be numb to knowing we still have a problem. all hyped up on medication. Heaven forbid you actually wanted to prevent anything!!! Goodness Kate, what were you thinking? :)
