Happy 2nd day of the New Year!
Aside from the current worldly events, how’s the New Year going for you personally?
I had such grand plans going into the new year.
I made a list of all of the things I was going to get done and it was full speed ahead… Until it wasn’t.
I was trying to organize
find room everything that Santa was kind enough to bring and that involved a lot of heavy lifting, pushing, and pulling, and can I just say this? If you’re over 50 and there are younger and stronger bodies around, let them do this shit. Their bodies still have a lot of oomph left in ’em. Mine does not.
Fortunately, or unfortunately, back pain and I go way “back” – get it? –
So I’m going with the at-home remedies. Hot/cold packs, Ibuprofen, using my massager – no, not that one – stretching, and taking hot baths with Epsom salts. However, I am currently in search of a chiropractor with a magic wand because this sign says it all!
Soooo. Since my back stopped me from continuing with my house organization I decided to do all of my at-home remedies and take a nap. I woke up feeling a little bit better but not much.
My oldest granddaughter called for some Facetime and that definitely made my heart feel good even tho she’s always freaking me out – and making me laugh – with her Nutcracker ornaments.
I am so not a fan of anything Nutcracker. The nutcrackers themselves are creepy and I’m pretty sure that nutcracker music is the music they play on a continuous loop in hell but lit’l Miss K loves it. She loves it so much she falls asleep listening to it! I told her the Nutcracker music makes blood shoot out of my ears so what does she do? She turns it on and turns it up!
Yep. She’s mine…
SIDE NOTE: She is in ballet and they will be doing the Nutcracker. That’s the ONLY time I’ll see it and love it. ❤
Still wanting to actually accomplish something today that didn’t involve heavy lifting I started organizing my online stuff and managed to delete 500 emails. Only about 8,000 more to go…
Yeah Willie… About 8,000 of them, give or take a few hundred…
And this was my day in a nutshell.
I hope your New Year has started out pain-free and that you’ve had a million reasons to smile today.

Be safe. Be well. Be happy. Be kind and I will meet you all back here tomorrow!
