9/30 Here's what sucks...

I just got paid yesterday and am already broke for this two-week period. I'll manage, I think. But that's not what's bad.

I'm working on packing, cleaning up and throwing away stuff, and my back is really hurting. I thought it was better but all this bending and lifting has done me in. Makes me want to just sit and cry--not from the pain but from the frustration of it all. When I get some money in--soon, I'll get rebates from my "cafeteria plan"--then I can hire someone to help me. In the meantime, I just have to keep busy.

Will relax a little right now with a muscle relaxer and the heating pad. Then we'll try 'er again.

Don't mean to sound so down. My life is awesome, I just hate these little setbacks.

Having an open house a week from tomorrow so I have to accomplish a lot today. Tomorrow from noon until night I have the Brawl Competition at CSz and then rehearsal and I can't get out of either one of them and I have rehearsal most of next week, so today and next Saturday are my big opportunities to get things ready for the open house.

Okay, time for drugs. Yay.

Mom, if you are not feeling better, then just get out of some of the rehearsals. Your health comes first! You have a lot coming up in a very short time, and you have your training you have to be well for. Love you.

I can't get out of the rehearsals, sweetie, but I won't go "full out." I'll take good care of myself, I promise.

Took some meds, took a nap, and I feel fine again. Love you.

Glad to hear you are feeling better. Take it easy and don't over do it. Don't mess with your back, I've been there. Love you.

I remember. You had it a lot worse than I I'm grateful that I go some days totally pain free. And I didn't rehearse full out when we did the dance scene--I was very well behaved. :)
