Things are quiet around here- but can you believe that this is my 900th post! You poor souls have been reading me babbling 900 times. I am so amazed! When I started this I never thought anyone would ever be interested in my ho hum life. Thanks to all of you for coming along for the journey!!
I've been frustrated this weekend. My back has continued to act up and I spent a lot of time doing absolutely nothing. Grrr... and I had so much on my list for this weekend. I felt like such a waste this afternoon. I went along with V to the home improvement store to pick up some more concrete to finish the second support pier for the deck extension as well as a bit of sidewalk/patio outside the back door. I couldn't lift anything- not that he would have let me even try. Of course, J17 was quick to point out that this is my body telling me to SLOW DOWN. Ok, Ok, I get it- can we move on now!
I didn't even get laundry done this weekend. I had I14 carry the hamper downstairs for me and I sorted slowly and painfully. But, when I tried to pick up the first load to put it in the washer- I got stuck- halfway up from a squatting position I couldn't move. Not cool. I can tell by the definite knot in my muscle that it's a muscular problem- not structural, thank goodness. I'm feeling much more mobile today but have still been taking it easy. I didn't even get bread baked for K11 (well, I made beer bread but that doesn't really count).
I do have the official word that I do not have to report for jury duty tomorrow. Good. Maybe I can get some laundry done in the morning. I've got an eye appointment at 1:30 so there goes the afternoon. At least it was too windy this weekend to put the roof panels on the chicken run or I'd be doubly frustrated- although I'm getting worried that it will be snowing before we get the roof on.
Had word from Mom that my uncle passed away this morning. He was my father's last living sibling. That really hits home. I'll have to give them a call tomorrow. Mom sent the message to my work email address and I didn't check that until late today and then didn't want to bother them. She also indicated that two other family members are having health issues. When it rains it pours.
Plans for tomorrow include cutting out my apron, doing a few loads of laundry and an eye appointment. If they don't dilate my eyes I may bake bread in the afternoon. We'll see how my back is doing.
