Funny, in a weird way, that I never really quite know how my back is going to be from day to day. Yesterday I took a rest day, I was exhausted. Today, I got up, but my back was uncooperative, and kept me in seeing as it hurt too much to drive my... Read more

Today I have taken a rest day. Did nothing. I would have liked to, but no energy. I believe I used it up yesterday. Now, instead of feeling guilty, I need to just enjoy the time of rest. Remind me, I really do not need to feel guilty a... Read more

Spring! Warm! Movement. Waking up not feeling up to driving to the allergist, so I slept, and went later. I drove, and listened to audio books. Not work related, just for me, to listen, to grow, to think and ponder, and let my brain wander... Read more

Day off for PT
Tuesday, March 13, 2012      3 comments

I woke with low back spasms. I did manage a light 10 minute stretching any way. I was trying to work out that bad kink, but it didn't really work. I went to PT, and hoped to work it out. But no, I left with it still pretty much doing me in. Good... Read more

Ah, it is Monday. I worked, a bit over four hours. The sun is shining, and the temperature is rising - up to close to 70 degrees! Makes me think of walking, gardening, and bees. Last night, I sang/danced along with Rock Band Wii while my son pla... Read more

Since I slept pretty well, and woke up with less pain than typical, I dove right in after breakfast to do some chores: empty the dishwasher, load the same, clean the sink, dust the living room, fold the blanket throws, clean off the table, put u... Read more

Sooo, yesterday was Physical torture, I mean Physical Therapy. This morning my back told me in no uncertain terms that it was severely unhappy with the whole thing. I found this out the moment I tried to roll out of bed, a near impossibility aga... Read more

Here we go, beginning of the week. I couldn't move really well this morning, and had a delayed start out of the house for work. I therefore ran into much more traffic than normal. I will aim to leave earlier next time. The extra traffic stresses... Read more

Those baby steps. Yep. Doing them. Not always easy, but doing what I can, when I can. Funny, this morning, I could barely move with my back. It eases up through the day, until night when I tire. Tonight, my son had gotten a new drum set for h... Read more
