Egads, my back! Also, Five Question Friday

Friday, February 18th, 2011

Unfortunately did something to my back this week. Two massages, several Robax, moderate heat, and a lot of ice later, the pain is bearable, but still not particularly conducive to getting much done. At least much outside of lying on my right side. I’ve accomplished impressive amounts of that.

I have to say, having this particular upper back issue is a little more challenging than the lower back issues I’ve had in the past. …Mostly because the things that seem to hurt it most so far are

1) Sitting (in any position), and
2) Lying down (in any position)

…with slightly less pain if I lie just right on my right side. This means I’ve been doing a lot of standing for the last few days. A lot of standing. Just standing. Makes for some fascinating happenings, let me tell you. Lie down with book until it just hurts too much to continue. Get up and stand there. …Get bored. …Get more bored. …Get tired. …Decide that surely it couldn’t actually hurt that much if I lay down again. Lie down. Hurt. Stand up. Lather, rinse, repeat.

(except with somewhat less actual lathering than I might normally be doing, to be perfectly honest. Because dude, that hurts)

Since my ability to tolerate computer time is limited today, quickly on to Five Question Friday. Questions via Mama M.

1. Have you worn the same outfit more than one day in a row?
If nobody who saw me the day before was going to see me? Absolutely. Also, dear lord, my back hurts.

2. If you had to choose any LARGE city to live in, which would it be?

3. Fly or drive with the kids on vacation?

4. What is your idea of “spring cleaning”?
Holy mother of… @$#%$!!

5. What is the best book you have ever read?
This book. This book I’m reading. On my right side. I promise, as soon as I type this sentence, I will lay back down on my right side.
