I haven’t been in a great mood lately. Mostly sleepy and hurting pretty bad. That’s why I haven’t been on here much. But I do plan on getting on here more and typing on here and my other blog. Just a couple of days a week. I want to ease into it. When I logged on today, WordPress has changed! WOW! I kind of like it. It’s sleek and nice. Give me a minute while I admire the page.
Updated: Apparently that slick new layout works only when you start a new post from your “my blogs” page. I went to the dashboard to this blog and opened the post from there so I could finish it and it opened in the regular page. I am cool with both.
I was watching Philip DeFranco (link will open in a new window) and he always has some blurb about some product that he uses and then shares a link for you to check it out. If something looks interesting, I check it out. Well, today he had the link to a blade place called Dollar Shave Club. I have heard about them before but I decided to check them out for myself.
I ordered the $1 “Humble Twin” to try. It’s $2 shipping and handling which brings my 5 razors to $3. Considering that I live in an area where razors are expensive and the price keeps going up, I decided to try the Dollar Shave Club. I recently paid $11 for blades. And by “recently”, I mean like a year ago because I can’t afford $15 (the price now) for razor blades.
AND my leg hairs could be braided at this point. It comes with a free handle too but I am hoping the blades fit one of my razors also. If not, $3 for FIVE BLADES! I can’t complain. If you want to check them out you can click here and check it out. It opens in a new window. If you order through the link, I make a little spending money (and I thank you for that!)
This was my first day for physical therapy for my upper back. They assessed my back and then we did some stretching to decide which stretches helped and which stretches hurt. Now I have at home stretches to do during the day.
One of the therapists came in and popped my back. It hurt at first but then felt a lot better. After that I headed to the store for ice cream because after Pain and Torture, I deserved an ice cream. My son drove because it hurts me to drive too far. I started hurting pretty bad by the time we got to the store and by the time we got home, I couldn’t hold my head up any more. All I could do was stare down at my feet.
I live in an apartment building on the top floor. Making it up the flights of stairs was horrible. I couldn’t step up with my right leg anymore and I could only go two to five steps at a time. Then I had to stop and wait for the pain to calm down before continuing.
All in all, I am still upbeat and positive about this. I know sometimes Physical Therapy doesn’t work, but sometimes it does. I am hoping this is one of those times.
Once I got inside, I sat in my chair and worked on not crying. I took all my meds and eventually, I fell asleep. Thank goodness for meds that knock you out. Never thought I would say that but, I was very happy to have meds that make me tired. I have appointments twice a week for the next month starting next week.
I’ll keep you updated on that.
For now, I am going to go play online games and work on a few drawings. WOOT!
