My body is betraying me - my right arm, to be exact. I called this post "arm and hammer" - the hammer being the pain.
I spend the better part of my days perched in front of a computer, tapping out emails, stories, communications... doing a job that I truly love. However a little shoulder ailment has turned into big pain and cries for rest at the end of my work day. I have had to reduce my personal computer activities - thus the irregular blog posts.
This pain is making it difficult to perform some simple everyday tasks: stirring, pulling clothes over my head, washing and blow drying my hair although it does look pretty darn good if I say so myself, reaching, sleeping my arm has insomnia or doing much of anything with my right arm. I have enlisted my left hand and after some training, it will no doubt be promoted to the rank of "right hand". After avoiding, deferring and denying, I am finally seeking some medical help and am well on my way to figuring out how to get healthy again. Summer is approaching and the joys of the cottage - swimming, canoeing, and fixing up the place - await, not to mention my daughter's upcoming wedding. The Village People's YMCA and the time warp await! And that flag -- well it will just have to wait to be waved!
I just wanted to let you know why I haven't been posting as regularly as usual. Enjoy your day, wherever you may be, and make today a good one,
