Pinched Nerve :(

This morning I got up and got ready and went to the bank to pay my house payment. My back started hurting rather suddenly and my knees buckled underneath me. :( I went to the dr. because this has been bothering me for some time but this time the pain would not go away. They sent me straight to the hospital for tests and I have a pinched nerve in my back. Yuckie. It is NOT pleasant. Anyway, I just took my pain med about 45 minutes ago and it's not doing much for it right now.

I'm really aggravated by this. I've been healthy for quite some time now--minus my *&%! weight. I've not had any major problems and then two weeks ago I found the lump in my breast (& I was told that I just have a naturally lumpy breast--just the one, mind you, thank God it was nothing more) and now this. Ok, I'm through whining.

What is the last thing you had to have repaired? The "E" key on my laptop. My cat, during her "crazies" jumped on my laptop in a nanosecond and somehow knocked the key off. I had to have my son put it back on and it's still crooked.

If someone gave you $2,000 with the stipulation that you had to spend half of it on yourself and give the rest to charity, where would you spend the $1,000 and which charity would receive your remaining $1,000? I'd spend the $1,000 at B&H Photo (see wish list on the right) and I'd give the other $1,000 to St. Jude's.

What is one of your favorite songs from the 1980s? Just ONE? Are you kidding? I was a teen in the 80's so I like them ALL, but if I have to choose just ONE, then I guess its "Save A Prayer" by Duran Duran.

Main Course
You enter a pet store. Which section do you go to first? The puppies!

On a scale of 1 to 10 with 10 being highest, how athletic are you? Maybe a 3. My kids do not get an ounce of their amazing athletic talent from me. My father was an All American in football and Marshall's brother was an awesome athlete so I guess that's where the kids get it from. :)

Poor thing, back pain is no fun and I've heard a pinched nerve is the worst!
