Have you been sitting on the edge of your seat wondering what I did yesterday on my sick/bad back day? Probably not, but here's what I did anyway.
Took it easy getting up and going, but we ([livejournal.com profile] stonebender  and I) went out to breakfast at 11:30 am.  Stopped at cheap place to get my hair trimmed, then off to get the van smogged.  It failed, so we went to the next place to see what we needed to do.  I have an appointment on Friday morning for them to check on, and probably just reset, the sensor that failed.  Then we went to see Watchmen.  After the movie, we picked up tacos for [livejournal.com profile] dbubley and spent about an hour or so at KPPACC with her.  Then home and rested the rest of the night.

All in all, I didn't do too much.  My back is still painful today, but I'm at work anyway.  I should have brought the ice pack with me, but hindsight is 20/20, huh?

Phone Call of the day (so far)
Me: Good Morning etc . . .
Caller in very loud voice with a southern accent: This is a man calling.  I am not a woman.  My name is . . . .

I guess he'd had his fill of "yes ma'ams" over the phone.  Bonus points: In the previous sentence did I use the quotation marks and apostrophe correctly - I want to put another apostrophe after the last "m" but then it looks like too many.  I have a love/hate relationship with punctuation.  As a reader - I need it, as a writer - make it go away.

I hurt my back taking garbage bag out last night.  Can't sit, stand or lay down without pain.  Bending is a big NO NO.  I'm staying home from work.  As soon as I made that decision this morning I started thinking of all the things I could get done today.  I need to take stuff to the dry cleaners, van needs to be smogged, call a plumber to fix the toliet, find my notary stuff so I can turn it  in, go to the movies, go see dbubley in the nursing home, clean more of dbubley's house . . . .  And the list just gets longer and longer.  The other part of my brain says "get the ice pack and go to bed."  Wonder which it will be.  Stay tuned.

What to do?

When it hurts to sit, when it hurts to stand, when it hurts to walk and when it hurts to lay down, where does one put ones body? And don't even suggest any bending over, you'll just make me scream (and not in that good way.)

My back/hip has been like this since Sunday afternoon and I'm really, really, really, ready for it to go away. I have a chiropractor's appointment tomorrow morning. Even though I know it won't just go away after I see her, that doesn't stop me from fantasying that that is exactly what will happen.
