Yesterday Nancy left a bottle of wine at my door, so I got a little high on wine and Robaxicet and it seemed to help me turn the corner on this backache. (Thank you Nancy!) I’m still bent over and walking weirdly, but there’s definitely an improvement in terms of pain and flexibility. I think I’ll
be able to have to go back to work tomorrow.
It’s funny how you put off doing things when you can do them, but you suddenly want to do them when you can’t. (I say this like you do it too, but maybe you don’t.) I’m thinking specifically of the outrageous weeds which are my front garden. These things are taller than I am, and I’m not even kidding. I had no desire to weed the garden until I was immobilized by this backache, and now it’s driving me nuts that I can’t.
In other news, PetSmart has run out of Feliway, which is the kitty aromatherapy product the vet recommended to help Duncan feel happier so he wouldn’t pee on the bed again. I went to two PetSmarts last week and they were both out of it. They’ve got it on back order, but Duncan hasn’t peed on anything else since the original two incidents, so maybe I’ll just save the $38 and consider the problem solved.
I’m leaning towards the Canon Powershot A650, but I might be just as happy with a less expensive camera.
Struggling artist update:
I made this.
It’s a mixed media collage. It incorporates acrylic paints, image transfers of old photographs and a playing card, sheet music, crumpled paper, and text blocks from classic feminist books.
I like it!
