For the past few weeks I’ve had this battle with my back. Hence, the lack of posts because that’s all I could think about and I didn’t really want to write about it, too. Everyone around me knows about it and is (rightfully so) probably tired of hearing about it. I’m tired of it. I irritated a disc and I’ve been gimping around, hatefully cranky. I haven’t been able to do much of anything–one would think I’d be happy to have an excuse to lie around and read or watch movies, but I’m not.
However, yesterday I finally felt great and today I feel pretty good. Such an improvement of the past few weeks! My days have consisted of my back cursing me and me cursing my back–a lot of teenage-like “I hate you” going around. It’s been a circle jerk of anger and extreme dislike and I’m ready to be done with it. While I’m not ready to go back to yoga and doing things the way I normally do them (per the doctor–I asked because I’m so ready to do something, anything!) I’m certainly on the mend. I can’t even believe I’m going to say this, but I’m actually ready to do housework! I decided this morning that I’m tired of this story and the misery that goes along with it–I somehow managed to put myself into a better mood that’s sustained itself for the day. This good mood paved the way for the following post about one of my favorite animals, the donkey. I laughed when I left the doctor’s office because there was a loyal party-person dressed in a hot, furry donkey costume supporting a local democrat and Obama. It’s already 88 degrees out…you have to love loyal supporters and friends no matter what your beliefs!
