I enjoyed the chance to wear the cute French Connection UK dress that Dea and I both coveted when we saw it in New York City last summer.
holding a poll this year-I wanted a plum colored gown but the internets were lacking so I settled for a black gown with an intricate beaded....thingy.
Back to Mom. Mom loves to take the kids in for haircuts, so we enjoyed MLK Day in town, shorn and shopping. The rest of the visit was spent hanging out, eating out, playing around, and visiting friends. We went for a nice snow shoe up the valley and were planning on heading up the Powerline Pass trail with her the next day, but she then realized that she actually had to leave that night, not the following. We were all bummed that the visit was cut short a day. It was so nice having my mommy out.
In the meantime, I seem to have physically started to discombobulate. My low back crap started acting up, both shoulders started to hurt, and one morning...intense pain down the left side of my neck into my rhomboids. Did I get into a car accident, you ask? Did I biff whilst downhill skiing? Get into a knife fight with a cagey broad in a downtown back alley? No. I hit 40 is all. Skate skied with the wrong size polls(grabbed Dea's by accident). One night my head snapped back when I fell asleep sitting on the couch watching a movie. I know, I know...HOW could I fall asleep watching Fight Club for feksake?!?! Chronic Low back pain, bursitis of the shoulders and whiplash.
So I've been going in twice per week for a barrage of cracking, zapping, kneading(this part is goooooooooood), re-assessing, steroidal patch applying and icing. So far the low back feels a bit better-Oh! My x-ray shows that I have lumbarization. NOTHING about me is NORMAL. The left shoulder is almost back to normal, the right still sucks. Maybe I should take a break from the poi spinning?
And then there is ART. Creating. A sudden surge of ideas flowing in....a million tiny seeds of creation germinating...taking root, infiltrating my mind...but that's my next post.
