Timing?

I am supposed to be packing for the trip north. Can't. Can't reach, can't bend. Breathing carefully. I don't know what I did, but I somehow hurt my back. If I move wrong the pain grabs me and reminds me to hold still. Right between my shoulder blades. A deep breath is out of the question ...........


So, instead of packing I am blogging (complaining?) and wondering how I will be able to direct he who hates to pack. Took some Ibuprophen and am hoping for enough relief to be able to get the job done. Have to assemble the requested food, too .........


Oh, if any kind soul offers some stronger pain meds ......... I will take it! Don't have time for this ..... why, why did this happen now?

Well, I have stronger drugs for you but you can't have them until you get here. Just pack some comfy clothes and get going!

Oh, ouch! So sorry you seem to have injured yourself. It always happens when we are rushed or have other plans doesn't it? Take care. Get that hubby of yours to massage you!

Poor you!

I'm sure that He Who Hates to Pack will do a great job; I'm sure they have stores where you're going for anything that gets forgotten.

Oh dang! I'm so sorry to hear that...back pain is the most annoying isn't it? I hope it settles down for you and he who can get you packed and on your way. Have a nice Thanksgiving.

It never fails! I'm sorry for your bad luck. Hopefully you'll be able to rest some soon! Have you tried using BioFreeze on it? That stuff really helps me!

Funny, I had terrible back pain yesterday, too. I just took a lot of ibuprofen and sat on a heating pad all day and that seemed to help.

Hope you feel better and are able to make the trip.

BTW, are you still selling sock monkeys?

Hope everything is better!!!

There is a semi medicinal substance that has been for years used as a remedy for glaucoma, and advocates are passionate about legalizing it.

I would never suggest such a thing, especially if you are supposed to be packing food stuffs, but maybe, just maybe.

You didn't, however, hear it from me.
