Those of you that follow me, know that I've pulled a muscle or pinched a nerve or some other such painful thing that only I could manage to do to my poor back. Whatever.

1. Today I bought some Active-On at Walmart.

2.I was given the instruction to get some from my Mom and Aunt.

3. So I did.

4. 'Cause I listen to my Mom.

5. Most of the time.

6. Even if I am 42.

7. My shoulder feels like it is about to fall off.

8. That would be totally gross...and painful.

9. Having a hurt back/shoulder/left arm does have its perks.

10. It has left me fairly incapacitated and therefore unable to cook, clean, or do laundry.

11. I will pay the price for that later, I am sure.

12. Because I have teenagers and all they think about is food...they had the gall to ask what was for dinner?

13. I pointed at my left arm that I dragged on the floor behind me.

14. I told them I could not cook with only my right hand.

15. It is impossible.

16. And might cause possible fire damage in the kitchen.

17. Or break a few of the rules of the health code.

18. Not that I don't do those sort of things on a normal day.

19. Did I just say, normal?

20. What is that?

21. My sons are currently watching a movie in the living room.

22. They are quiet and fairly contained.

23. So, I'm thinkin' peace for about 2 hours, give or take.

24. This leaves me time to drink my green tea and watch NCIS reruns.

25. After all I have my priorities.

26. One of them being Mark Harmon.

27. My husband is working on a project in his office.

28. I hear the drill and some banging.

29. He is cutting into my being able to hear "Jethro". Puh-leeze.

30. It's quiet now. I need to go investigate.


  1. Another great post. I like the way you use lists to create your content. I'm a big NCIS fan and I can't wait for the season to start. I caught Kill Ari and the episode where Jenny gets killed. Two good shows. Did the Active On help?

  2. Tom,
    You've gotta be a good guy if you are an NCIS fan. Just sayin'. The Active-On did help. It is a topical analgesic, so it at least takes the pain away for awhile:)

  3. I am forced to agree with you! I was a huge fan of 24 too. I hope you begin to feel better soon.
