Three weeks ago I threw my back out after moving boxes and boxes of apples at the food bank. Everyone has apples! around here. We’ve got apples out the wazoo probably because of last years flood; the ground was soaked and the trees were very happy (that, and we didn’t have a late frost to kill the buds this spring).
Anyway, after another day at the food bank I’m better but still taking aspirin when I can’t stand the gnawing pain anymore (I held out until 2:30 today — hooray). I’m hoping to feel just a tad better every day (or two) as a sign that things are going the right way.
Not only that, it was 82º in the Denver area this afternoon, “about 1/100 year heat for date” according to Josh Larson, a Colorado weather guy I follow on Twitter so hey, you know, I should be outside. I’m not outside because I’m staring at this photo. I can’t stop looking at it. SO CUTE!
Here’s a shout-out to all of you who live with chronic pain. God. It’s. Exhausting.
Okay, enough of that. Happy Friday. Happy fall. Thanks to the universe for puppies!
