Life Always has Different Plans for me, Than I have Planned
We finally have winter here, I don't think it's gotten above 30 degree's all week, and Saturday it just lightly snowed all day.
I already bought myself a Christmas present, so excited. Season tickets to Tuacahn, wish if you aren't familiar with it, it's Broadway in the desert down in St. George, UT. The plays there rivial those you would see on Broadway in New York, seriously! Next years plays are Peter Pan, Disney's Tarzan and Disney's Hunchback of Notre Dame and I will be seeing them all! Totally excited. YAY, me!
I did have a wedding over the holiday weekend, it went well. Oh, and I was reminded quickly how much I don't particularly like pulling a trailer on icy roads. I had a scary 50 feet sliding down a hill, fortunately I have been pulling a trailer for years and with a great truck I was able to correct things before sliding through a red light into traffic.
But even so, I still dislike pulling a trailer on black ice roads. Everything went great at the wedding, but towards the end I had a little accident of sorts (not with the trailer, thankfully).
In short, I have had some gradual pain over the past few months that I couldn't shake kept getting a little worse and worse by week in my L4 region, (which happens to be the same place I have a bulging disc from car accidents years ago. )
Saturday while I was taking down the wedding. The pain kept getting more and more intense and to the point that I could no longer use my back.
It's so bad, I can barely move around much right now. In fact I had difficulty lifting the milk out of the fridge and pour it in my cereal bowl. I also can barely take the pain from pushing my muscles to stand up straight, so ya I am an embarrassing leaning person walking around. I am sure I look like a leaning 90 year old as I walk.
I won't see a Chiro, I will wait for a Specialist. I had a few bad experiences many years ago with dishonest Chiro's, and I don't trust them for anything. I have a few close friends who have been injured worse by them too. Plus, I have had many doctors and specialists tell me not to take the risk of seeing one. So despite that I do know some do say they find help with them. I refuse to see one myself. So if your wondering why I haven't ran down to a nearby office of one of them today, that is why. All that, and even though I am no doctor I am pretty sure things are aligned, this is something else.
Sleeping on my side, taking good drugs is pretty much the only thing that keeps the pain to a minimum. I cannot be on my back or stomach at all and I can only sit or stand for short periods of time.
It doesn't help the fact that of course I would come down with a flu bug as well this weekend. Which is why I attribute the fact that I slept in until 1pm today, and seriously could go right back to bed and not blink an eye right now. In fact, I just might!
I am hoping this is one of those 72 hour things and tomorrow I will wake up flu free again, wishful thinking never hurts anyone!
I meant to take last week of blogging for the most part, and just enjoy a little break. I did, not mean for it to have to extend beyond that. But due to current circumstances, I may have to drop post frequency down this week a little. We will see what happens. But I wanted to let you all know what is going on, and why I might not be around quite as much this week.
There are still MANY awesome giveaways going on right now. On my sidebar, you will see a link to the Holiday Giveaway Hop going on right now, click on it and take some time today to enter to win some awesome prizes!
So tell me, did you have a great Thanksgiving?
Do you buy yourself a big present each year like I do? If so, what are you buying yourself?
