Just to get you updated – my back is doing much better. It was much much better until this weekend. I mowed grass – didn’t cause too much trouble – I carried a big old ladder around the neighborhood – not too bad. Forgot to take any advil before I went to sleep – oops. Kind of stiff and sore, but that’s alright.
I got the slick thing – a “TENS Unit” – which is a little electronic stim unit that sends a little electricity into your body and relaxes your muscles. I love the thing! I wear it around on my belt and get “treatment” as those in the NFL call it! It is the bomb digity!
I think – if I feel okay in the morning tomorrow, I may actually take my bike and go for a little ride at lunch. I wont try to re-start riding on the first day – but I think I may be coming out of my back-induced retirement.
Sarah and Derek went out on a bootylicious run on Saturday. It was apparently really fun – lots and lots and lots of people running just a stone’s throw from my office. In CO, Sarah had about 15 people to run with for her Team in Training thing – In the ATL we are looking at 150+ There were other kids there and everything.
Max and I went to the car wash – which is one of Max’s favorite things in life. The little fella loves the car wash. Not really sure why – but he does!
That’s about it for this weekend. We have been to a couple neighborhood parties, had some fun. As I lay here typing, I see Spanky enjoying her bed… I think she has the right idea! Zzzzzz Then again, Max isn’t going to allow that. Funky weather… maybe a trip to Monkey Joe’s will be in order!
