So, what would be the next fun thing that might happen after a couple of weeks of feeling flat, uninspired and unmotivated?
Oh, yes! My back could give out on me.
Which is, of course, exactly what happened on Monday morning when I was walking in to work juggling my backpack, laptop bag and umbrella. Because it was raining. So when my back suddenly seized up and spasmed and I was shrieking in agony, there wasn’t anywhere dry I could go to put everything down except my workplace.
It was a most uncomfortable day and I was grateful for the (probably out of date, I didn’t look) anti-inflammatories in my desk drawer that got me through the day.
Through some miracle (probably a last minute cancellation) I managed to get a doctor appointment the next day and she told me to take the week off. She said I shouldn’t stay in bed like I wanted to but that I needed to keep moving and to not sit for more than 30 minutes.
Don’t sit for longer than 30 minutes . . . How many times have I heard that recently?
It’s one of those things I’ll start off the day knowing I have to do and I’ll get up a couple of times. Then after an hour or so, I’ll get caught up in something that takes longer than 30 minutes and before long, I haven’t moved for a couple of hours. I need to stop doing this!
22 for 2022 update
I kept up with my reading challenge (thing 21).
I finished one of the blog posts I wanted to write this week, which was about the Clarence City Council Chambers. Lil Sis and I visited it during the Open House Hobart weekend. It was the only building we were able to get to that weekend and I’m glad that, if we could only get to see one place, it was one as wonderful as this.
