Last weekend I injured my back, my own fault, because I didn’t lift Aja using my knees. Everyone knows you lift bracing with your knees so you don’t stress the back muscles. Oops….wasn’t thinking when I started to lift our little 34 pound girl. She’s old, she can’t jump into the Outback anymore and without thinking, I reached down and grabbed her. The back locked up with a horrid shooting pain.
I called out to Doug, “I can’t move! You have to come get her” and thus began my introduction to Aleve pain meds and back exercises.
Spoiled old girl, love her..............
Anyway, it’s feeling much better now. Really puts a cramp in your style when the walking routine is disrupted, can’t move pots of water from the stove to the sink, stuff like that. Doug did the lifting in the kitchen, all the lifting of Aja into the back seat of the car and more. It will be good to get back to walking as I had been.
Speaking of the Outback, I managed to very roughly scrape the passenger side tire and rims on a curb going into work. Nice. I pulled into one of the entrances at work and there was line at the guard shack. Someone probably mistook the entrance for a doctor’s office, had tried to get into the compound and needed to turn around. The car ahead of me went through the gate but I steered too close to a curb and damaged the rims. Took a bit off the tires too but the folks at Subaru looked it over and they are fine.
I’m not blaming the misdirected car, this was completely my fault. I’m very relieved that we don’t need new tires. Maybe the scrapes on the rims will buff out. 😡
Work got hectic when a day of scheduled interviews was canceled and all had to be called, set up for different times. It's not a big deal but who wants to go over the same work twice. After that was handled I had down time to check out the CNN email with highlights of news. At the bottom of that email they always include something funny, silly or happy.
So what happens? My boss comes in when I am looking at a video of a cow playing ball with her owner. I had been working solid and took 5 minutes and of course that's when he comes in.
End of first world problems and personal woes :-)
Let's visit Souper Sunday.
A few weeks ago I saw a post at Carole's Chatter for her toss together Pasta Salad. Her post is HERE and you will see a pretty photo of her salad.
The salad was good and instead of following her recipe to the letter, I added corn and tomatoes. Recipes are just guidelines and suggestions for me.
Yes, here are my blue lunch bowls again. 👇👇👇
Carole's Pasta Salad
Hard boiled eggs
sliced green onion
I cooked the pasta and had the hard boiled eggs on hand. Sliced up the rest of the veggies and used a piece of grilled salmon. It was cold and I think we ought to have eaten it cold. We heated it up at work and added an Italian dressing. It would have been much vbetter if we'd used other dressing or ate it without heating. It was still good and lots of protein packed in here.
Linking up with Deb at Kahakai Kitchen for Souper Sunday this week. Here post and yummy soup and sandwich may be found HERE.
