So, I’m gearing up for the holidays (yes, I should have already geared but I don’t seem to be very good at pre-gearing). I’m filled with ideas about what I want to do and I’m in full-factory mode churning out tons of coasters (one store ordered 500 and now speculates that they may have underestimated their need).
So all is good!
And then, foolishly, I got out of my car last Sunday.
And that was all it took for the herniated disc in my lower spine to decide that, after years of dormancy, NOW was the perfect time to totally freak out.
What followed was an entire week of moving veeeery slowly and sleeping veeeery badly and being veeeery whiny. It was fun! You should have come over!
Thoughtful friends offered to share their Vicodin supplies which was sweet but made me really wonder why everyone but me seems to have so many drugs at hand. However, I’d tried Vicodin years ago and it didn’t seem to have much of an effect. Actually all it seemed to do was make me care a little less about the pain….. which was interesting if not particularly helpful. So I muddled through with Naproxin.
So, since lifting things (like the garage door!) was out of the picture I thought I’d catch up on trying some new designs and playing with my camera.
I’m just not a good photographer but I’m trying to improve. I can’t decide if I need a new camera or a new me but I usually spend about an hour taking pictures and then three hours working in Photoshop to make them not suck. I am only occasionally successful.
I think these are a bit of an improvement.`
(OK The Hangover Room was probably a dive bar)
I’m happy to report that my back is much better today – so I’m” back” on track. Which is great as being waylaid there really did get my mind racing with ideas. Now lets see if I can turn them into reality!
