Friday before last (Jan 11th), I drove down to PA to see my mom, with Lisa, Travis and Carley. I sat in the back seat for the trip doing work (yay for EVDO wireless cards). Anyway, I wasn't in a very comfortable seat, and I was looking at a computer screen for 4 hours. Not in itself bad. Once we got to PA, Spencer went into the house and we were taking stuff inside. He immediately bolted and ran around for a good 20 minutes, almost getting hit by a car several times (he was standing on the yellow line of a main road as a car went by on either side). I was in my dress shoes and was my muscles were a little cold after sitting for 4 hours. We finally got him corralled and into the house safe and sound. That night, I slept on an air mattress, and nearly froze, so I wasn't real comfortable.
Onto the next morning... I woke up and could barely move :( I had completely thrown my back out, and of course, Sunday I was due to drive 300 miles back to NY. I made the trip w/o much problem, but by Tuesday of last week, I could barely move again, and I couldn't rotate my head at all. I made several trips to the chiropractor, because there was no muscle damage, but everything hurt.
I am finally feeling a bit better, though not 100%. Who thought that getting old would be so bad?
