sometimes pain wins

i got up this morning at 4:45, roughly 3 hours after drinking this liquid that is supposed to help you sleep longer. lets just say it didn't quite work. i went upstairs to try to stretch out and really loosen my body up, and then pain decided it wanted to play. my left arm started to spasm and really get painful. on the scale of 1 to 10, it was somewhere around 8 or so. and of course, we have no pain pills, so all i'm left with is lotions, ice bags, and alcohol. the way the weather is here lately, i'd be better off just sticking my left arm in one of the snow drifts out here. if this pain continues... we're supposed to get 6 inches of snow this weekend.

i'm not exactly thrilled with the forecast as my mom needs to drive to Columbus on Sunday, right in the middle of the snowstorm. not good. plus, Sunday is the day the trash goes down to the end of the lane. i don't think that's going to happen which basically means the next time i take it down i will be taking down a month's worth of trash. yikes.

the windchill was -20 when i went out to feed the cats today. let's just say i was less than thrilled when i had snow blowing into my face as i was trying to open a gate to get to the barn. good times. the wind is hopefully going to stop before the snow hits. if we get that kind of wind along with a few inches of snow, it will be blizzard time. and all i can think about is shoveling sidewalks with one arm.

sorry for being so short today, but that's about all the typing i can do without feeling the need to cut my arm off.

hope everyone has a great weekend. please send some positive vibes my way or cash. that works as well.

be well. stay warm. and unless i kill myself in the snow tomorrow, i'll be on here before Dayton plays in the afternoon up in Rhode Island.
