Good Morning

I'll tell ya, it is amazing what a reduction in pain and a good night's sleep can do for a girl. I feel a lot better. And rested. I am still moving carefully, not lifting or hefting anything heavy, and hanging with my heating pad. I am doing a little chore here, a bit of whatever there. I am going to give myself the best chance to heal. And be able to get back on the road. I want to walk, dammit!

It is supposed to start snowing, later. Today and tomorrow is predicted to bring an accumulation between four and six inches. Then the next few days are supposed to be really cold. Blargh! I need the snow to melt. Fast! And go. away. Snow is all pretty and ooooh! ahhh! for about five minutes. Then it is just a major pain in the ass. Especially if you live on the side of a frakking hill. :P

Okay, I need to run. I have to pee like a racehorse (yes, that is one of my favourite things to say, how did you guess? :P) I am being a good girl and drinking all my water, and I need to put my sheets in my dryer. And quickly mend the little tear I found in my featherbed.  Damned cat, anyway.


  1. Glad you are feeling better today, Erika. Wishing you a painless day!

  2. hey my name is Bella and I just ran across your blog! it looks great, have fun in the snow! And good luck with all else, I'll keep reading!

  3. Thank you, Karen. :)

    Hi Bella. Thanks for hanging out. :)

  4. I am really happy to hear that you are feeling better today. I too hate snow, passionately, (which is why I live in the desert) so I sympathize with you.

    So you're trying to drink more water which leads me to ask the question: do you find yourself getting up several times a night to pee? I've been trying to increase my water intake and I'm starting to wonder if the effect it's having on my sleep is worth it. I try to drink more water in the morning and less in the evening but it's only helping marginally.

    Don't forget to let us know when you get back out on the road again so we can congratulate you!

  5. I think you need to keep your super-cleaning self in check to get better faster!!! ;-)

  6. Oh, that trip to the doc did not sound fun.

    I do hope that you are fully healed soon. To bed with ye, rest, my dear, rest! Never a better time to rest!

    All the best for a speedy recovery.
