Well, I started on the tramadol last night - half of one at bedtime, the other half when I got up - and it is HUGELY helping with the pain. Woooooo hoooooooooo!!!! I can't tell you how nice it is to be at a 2 or 3 pain level, as opposed to an ... Read more
MRI Followup with Doc
Saw the doc this morning to go over the results of the MRI test. SUPER helpful! I probably screwed up her schedule for the entire day, because she spent a full half hour with me, but it was just great. She went through all the results with me... Read more
One Week till Christmas, Yiiiiikes!
I'm not ready, aaaaaaagh! How can it possibly be only a week till Christmas???
I did get a pile of presents wrapped on Monday evening, so at least our tree looks respectable now. :-) But I still have shopping to do - not looking forwar... Read more
Back Issues, Greek Yogurt, Sick Kid, No More Cavities
How's that for a blog title? Get your attention? LOL!
Had a rough day yesterday with the back pain, but thankfully it eased up by bedtime and I got a decent night's sleep. But I tell you, if the doc offers me a cortisone shot on Thursday... Read more
Monday, the Back Verdict, and Rain
Lordy, my back is bad! I was doing okay this weekend, since I was on my feet a lot, but yesterday evening I was laying on the couch and the dog jumped on me. OY. Had a terrible night, just couldn't get comfortable. :-(
I got my MRI resu... Read more
Didn't sleep well again last night, back was really bugging me. :-( Then I woke up super early, and I was having a horrible time getting back to sleep, especially after the dog jumped up on the bed. But I guess I did get back to sleep because... Read more
So, thankfully the MRI last night turned out to be WAY easier than last time...they told me it was 20 minutes, it didn't even feel that long! Really a nice surprise. I think it was actually easier, knowing what I was in for this time. And of ... Read more
Storm of the Century...Not
Well it's nearly 4:30 and I have not only survived driving to Davis and back for a conference (about a half hour each way), but I have survived all the rain and wind. Sheesh! The hype around this storm has been unbelievable...you'd think we'd ... Read more
Whew, what an emotional roller coaster the past week or two have been at work! Things are just so crazy. The good news is, leadership has ok'd hiring the person we want to hire for the junior consultant position, and it looks like we'll be abl... Read more
Didn't have a lot of time for a workout this morning, for a variety of reasons, but I decided a short run/walk workout was better than a yoga workout - trying to get that running in right now! I bumped up from run 1 minute, walk 2, to run 1-1/2... Read more
My Appointment with the Dietician
So, my long-awaited appointment with the nutritionist, dietician, whatever she's called, was this morning. The good - and bad - news is that she doesn't think my diet is very out of whack. I know, that's good, but I want a silver bullet to fix... Read more
Sunday Night and I am Beat
Whew, what a busy day it has been! But I guess I should pick up where I left off. Let's see, we took my dad to lunch yesterday, which was nice. Then we hit the grocery store and I know we did another errand but I honestly can't remember right... Read more
Man What a Week
This week has been so nuts at work, I don't even know where to begin. Long story short, my boss is leaving, and I am NOT being promoted to her position. Leadership is concerned because I've only been at the committee for two years...apparently... Read more
Skipped the workout yesterday - just couldn't face the pouring rain again! But this morning I got the pooch out for a 2.81-mile, 50-minute walk so that felt good. And I only got sprinkled on, no real rain.
My back is doing better, but I... Read more
Rain, MRI, Changes
POURING rain this morning when we woke up - hard enough that we could actually hear it, didn't have to look out the window! Of course Paul wussed out on walking the dog again - he didn't go yesterday because it was raining, and it was a light r... Read more
