Since August of this year I have been Sidelined.
This is how I have been spending most of my time.
Cozy socks on me feets, reading, watching movies, drinking green tea...or vodka lemonade..
I am finally at the age where all of my former injuries are coming back to haunt me. ~ The times I fell down ice skating, the times I fell down skiing, the times I fell off my bike, the times I over did it in dance class, the time I tried to move the piano by myself, the time I fell off of my CLOGS..Well, you get the picture. There are a lot of unfortunate things going on in my back. It is Painful and Annoying! I cannot walk more than a half a block. Augh!!!
I have been chiropractored and accupunctured and massaged and physical therapied and yoga-ed and Pilated. I hang daily from the monkey bars. I have been tossed around the murky seas of the American Health Care System. I have been x-rayed and MRIed and I even let a very nice doctor stick a couple of needles into my spine. Augh!!! All to no avail.
Meanwhile my garden has been given over to Mother Nature.
I actually think it looks Better this way.
We've been eating way too much take-out. Tho, this pizza is pretty good..spinach/ricotta. Yum!
I have been trying to take Inspiration from the Collage on my Refrigerator.
I've set up a little shrine to Ganesha, Remover of Obstacles and added a nice straight piece of Crystal for Strength and Clarity.
|He's still alive. Really! He just likes to sleep this way.|
Even my poor dog, Pancake, is totally EXASPERATED!
This kind of explains the number of blog posts from my home. It's getting pretty boring...
|That is my "twin", Christie Brinkley, who underwent back surgery a couple of years ago and is now dancing in the musical "Chicago"! I need to know these things!!!|
Since I can't really walk very far I pedal and pedal away the days on the stationary bike while I browse shoe shopping websites and Google "celebrities with back injuries" and visit my Beloved Blog Friends ~ Yes..YOU. I LOVE reading about what is going on in your lives. You probably weren't even aware of it but You have ALL really been helping me to get through this.
Thank you! Thank you! THANK YOU!!!!!
As you read this, I am hopped up on pain meds recovering from back surgery...because who doesn't want to spend the holidays in a back brace???? See you in the New Year!!!
