If I have to be in my car for longer than it takes me to get to our local Walmart any time soon, I may cry. The 13 hour drive up left me with a pinched nerve. I’ve never had one before and MAN DOES IT SUCK. Thank God the wife half of the couple friends we were visiting is a massage therapist. She fixed me while I was there, and I just had another massage now that I’m home. I think I’ll ultimately feel better but I hurt right now. I’m trying to guzzle water and flush everything out.
Oktoberfest was fun, even if I was the only sober person in that region of Omaha Saturday night. I did some shopping, FINALLY found a pair of boots that fit (the tall riding style ones that are made with the assumption that all women have toothpick legs–newsflash, we don’t), bought some new teas, made a run by Half Priced Books, and picked up some dried gourmet mushrooms for a 3 mushroom pasta dish I have planned down the road.
I got a little bit of writing done while I was away, but not much. I don’t have high hopes of doing more than finishing the scene I am on this week, as I must play catch up now.
Thanks to R.B. Wood, Deniz Bevan, and Joely Sue Burkhart for guest blogging while I was away! And if you needed anything from me, I’m working on wading through an inbox of epic proportions, and I hope to get to you soon.
Ouch. I’m so sorry to hear about the pinched nerve. Those long car rides are murder. I have a similar chronic case and I can’t sit comfortably for more than a few minutes.
Smart thinking to get a massage.
A massage! Dang, why didn’t I think of that? I certainly needed one after 18 hours of driving.
Sorry about the pinched nerve, those do hurt!
Welcome back! I hope you feel better soon.
Hope you feel better soon! I’ve never been to an Oktoberfest – it sounds like fun!
Thanks for letting me guest post 🙂
