Just watched 'You've got Mail'. Love that film.

Contented sigh.

Although, then I started wishing I lived in New York, had a totally cute children's book store that was successful and had any sort of romance going on.

Then I remembered that I'd have to pay to go visit a doctor.

Which would suck.

we've kept in touch and he keeps asking me out and i've always found reasons not to go because he's WAY out of my league.

but he's in the city (lives about 20 minutes away) tonight and asked me out to dinner. we've been emailing and texting again for the past 3 weeks.

ta da!

yes, i know... full report when i get home!

LOL!

eta. by SOME miracle, today i am wearing my new black top with the asymmetrical neckline and my favourite beaded choker. my nail polish is still perfect and my eye makeup has stayed on all day!

shocking!


Omg, this is so exciting!!

This love story sounds like me and my man!!

I always considered him out of my league - though I don't know why. He's a man and scratches his balls and farts like all the others. He's just super good looking and manly and I had this image worked up about him. He's a man, I'm a woman, it works out. No league.

Good luck, gorgeous!

I thought about that a few days ago, hope everything is ok with him.

Earlier today I was wondering how Minxy is doing, hope she'll check in with us soon.

Oh y'all... this pain ain't no joke. I can't put any weight on that leg so I'm hobbling around.

I found a few stretches to do online and I'm hoping that will help. It hurts so bad it's hard to get on the floor to do it though.

This isht ain't funny.

Is it sciatic pain? Like down your butt and into your thigh?

It's not really down into my thigh, mostly concentrated in my buttock/very lower back (I've been wanting to use that word all day) and slightly to the side toward my hip.

I did a stretch and got up and moved around a bit and it seemed to let up a slight bit, but damn it hurts. I've had constant aches and pains as long as I can remember, but not anything that keeps me from walking so this is frustrating.

I'll give it the weekend and if it's not better I'll get an appt. to see my Doctor.

Prayer circle for my buttock, y'all.

I hope it's not sciatica. The pain can be excruciating at times.

It's probably common sense springy but try an ice pack and take some Motrin for now until you get checked out.

I would recommend a Chiro too but I am somewhat biased. . I hope you get some relief!

Thanks for the ice suggestion (common sense? I haz none)! I always go straight to heat and forget all about ice, but reading a little online says the ice is good for the initial intense sharp pain and the heat might be good for after that subsides a bit. Of course I'm super guilty of heating pad abuse and leaving it on too long which I know isn't good. So off the heat and onto some ice for about 15 minutes, I shall!

I could only find Tylenol, but I think there is Motrin in the house upstairs... which is why I don't have it. Stairs? No way.

I used to work for a physical therapist so I'm always a bit biased in leaning toward PT instead chiro.

No one is out of your league, Rou.

No one.

You put the "hot" in hot cakes.

I wasn't implying you had no common sense! I just figured most people know to apply ice or heat when they hurt. I know generally speaking that ice is applied for the first three days after initial injury and can switch to heat after that. I was just thinking to give ice a try to see if it helps .

Motrin helps reduce the inflammation. But I know I would take whatever is on hand too if I were in pain!

PT and Chiro offer similar treatments. But I get Chiro isn't everyone's cup of tea. . Again I hope you get better soon!

Oh gosh, I know! haha It just goes to show it's always good to make a suggestion even if you think it's the most obvious of things. I grab my heating pad first because I'm thinking "Ahhhh, heat...NOW!!". #heatingpadaddicted

It's let off a little bit and I think getting up and moving around, stretching and ice are helping. Thanks y'all for the suggestions! Who needs a Doctor!

That does it. I'm never cleaning again.

It obviously disrupts the time space continuum around here.

My chiropractor tells me heat or ice. Whatever I like better. If its pain due to an injury that judt happened, and theres swelling, do ice. Otherwise its whatever you like better.

Although ice will numb it and you'll feel better. You can alternate.

People naturally go toward heat because it just feels so good! Ice is often uncomfortable for most. I typically forewarn my patients before I put it on. Brace yourself!

Claudine, you said it much better than I.
