Oy! My Aching Back!

I love the rainy weather, it just doesn't like my lower back. This morning it took almost an hour to get through my back exercises when I usually finish in 20 minutes. Oy! Now that's really bad. I have been taking Zanaflex like the doctor instructed but it makes me so tired and it's benefits only last for 2 hours. That sucks.
I completely stopped taking Hydrocodone because it wasn't working. So I gave up on it. I just need to call my doctor and see what he can do for my bad days like today.

This morning I was watching the weather report on GMA and the North Eastern part of the USA is getting snow flurries off and on today. Well, that's what I heard. Crazy damned weather. We're expecting a cold front that will only take the temperatures down to the 70's. Break out the parkas and mukluks, right?

Pain is getting worse for me so I'm cutting this post short. Sorry. I will have my regular stuff like Wet Dog Wednesday and Canada Ey? this week. I will also be posting Ask Me Anything Friday. Now I have to hunt down that heating pad. Ciao my friends.

My Weekend

I'm blogging a bit late this morning because I had to go to my doctors office and have bloodwork drawn. My doctor seems to think I'm diabetic. I had to have my fasting insulin level drawn plus and iron binding today because my iron levels are up. In May, I will have to do this all before I finally see my doctor again.

our new weed puller
Our weekend started early. David took half a day off on Friday afternoon. He wanted to get something over at Home Desperate for the hose. Now y'all know David doesn't just go to Home Desperate for one needed thing. He gets the one needed thing, plus he brings home other things he says he needed but didn't see them last time he was there. Yes, yes he does. Every single time.

Well, Friday he brought home a weed puller that saves you from having to bend over to pull weeds. Yes, it's the kind where you step in the lever at the bottom and the teeth of the weed puller gets shoved into the ground around the weed. Then it encloses around said weed and pulls it out. You just push the yellow lever in the center to make it release the weed and go pull another one. It is efficient I'll say that for it. Sort of like a catch and release system. Somehow I wonder if I should buy stock in Home Desperate. After all, in another 20 years David will own every fucking thing that they sell.

So after he pulled about 5 or 6 weeds, he came inside and sat down and watched Jerry Springer and then Maury. Trash TV as usual. I finished the laundry and went into the living room on the other side of the house where it's really nice and quiet and surfed the web.

On Saturday, he finished pulling weeds from the front lawn and came in. It was fairly warm outside. We are using our AC already and it's just spring. I was baking and cleaning house as usual. I made a pecan pie from a recipe that I made corrections on. It turned out great! Saturday night was boring so we ate some pie and watched John Wick and Dracula Untold. Two movies I've been wanting to see. Dracula was ok. It could have been better. John Wick was an action packed fun shoot-em-up, if you like that sort of thing like I do. If you want to know about the movies check them out on Wiki.

Michonne and her katana
Sunday David washed the dog blankets and gave the dogs a bath. I was down for the count in bed most of the afternoon with the heating pad and meds. My back was giving me hell as it is right this very minute. But I was able to make dinner for David. I didn't eat. Pain does that to me. Then I took a long shower to let the hot water beat on my back, went to bed and fell asleep. I did wake up in time for The Walking Dead season finale. The show was fairly boring, but I was glad things at Arlington will change. Morgan showed up, which made me happy, and Michonne finally put her katana back on. She looked whole as if she had been missing a dear friend for so long.

And David Said "huh?"

After I read this to David, he said "huh?" It was obvious that he was in the "Nothing Box".

**Oh, just in case y'all were wondering. Yes, David had that blank*I'm in my Nothing Box*stare when I read this funny story to him. If you want to hear and see the long drawn out session about this it's on

Jon Stewart Made Politics Fun To Watch

I am truly going to miss Jon Stewart when he finishes filming the final Daily Show installment. He made that show what it is and on top of that his comic view of politics is unsurpassed. He has ripped Fox News to shreds time and again, not to mention nearly every politician available that made stupid remarks on camera. You made politics fun and I wish you were staying. Jon, you're the greatest!

"She Turned Me Into a Newt - I Got Better"

I can tell y'all right now that there is not enough coffee or middle fingers for this Monday morning. After putting up with the most horrendous arthritic backache of all time for the past five days, nothing, in this crazy fucked up world can possibly make my life better. Except maybe spell check. Yeah, spell check helps a little.

I have to thank my wonderful heating pad and not so wonderful pain meds. Zanaflex and Hydrocodone are overrated. They had no effect on my pain what-so-ever. One thing that did get me through was watching DVD's and catching up on my book reading. As usual one of my most favorite DVD's is Monty Python and The Holy Grail. My brother and I love watching anything Monty Python and we can both recite this crazy funny movie word for word.

Pain has come back to claim it's reward

I'm having that glorious wonderful back pain again. Yes, it's close to 10+ on the scale. When it hits 11 I'm heading for the hospital ER.
No, my meds are not working and I have asked my pain doctor for something stronger. I'm waiting for a phone call from his office. So, before I pass out(kidding), I'm going to go lie down and hope for the best. Otherwise, if you don't see a post for tomorrow or anytime after, don't panic. I'm trying to rest and hoping to be able to get back to normal again. Love y'all lots.

Canada Eh?
