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

Thursday, December 18, 2014      2 comments

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

Wednesday, December 17, 2014      2 comments

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

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

Monday, December 15, 2014      4 comments

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

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'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

Monday, December 08, 2014      4 comments

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

Sunday, December 07, 2014      1 comments

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

Saturday, December 06, 2014      3 comments

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

Tuesday, December 02, 2014      2 comments

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
