This week has been...well, less than exciting. Mostly due to the fact that I have been in serious pain due to, what I can only guess is, a pinched nerve somewhere in the area of my right shoulder/neck/back. This morning I was able to get out of bed with little pain, so that's a plus. However, I still have some pain into my right arm. I'm not complaining about the pain! I know going to the doctor would be an easy and quick way to figure out the cause and solution, and that I now have health insurance, but I am not a doctor person. I am far more comfortable with the pain than the thought of going to a doctor. I am sure there are plenty of you who go for regular check-ups and all of that (and may even be doctors yourself), but I have never been ill/sore enough to think a trip to the doctor would make me happy.
Regardless of my thoughts on doctors, though, I have been unable to really do much. I really noticed the pain getting worse by the end of my workday, Tuesday. So, this past week, I have been doing what NEEDED to be done, and that is it. I've taken advantage of not having to do all the daily tasks of home ownership/adulthood AND working 45 hours a week by relaxing between chores. I cozied up to the heating pad (which didn't really help, which is why I suspect it's a nerve and not muscles) and watched old movies and some of a 3 Stooges Marathon on New Year's Eve.
But, by the end of the week, I needed some fun. Sister Steph had the day off Saturday, too. I decided to go to her place to play Beatles Rock Band, even though I knew it was probably a bad idea. Sure, my back and shoulders were sore by the end, because I've been babying them all week, but it was a blast.
I was also planning on going over to Dad's and checking out the Barracuda and throw a tarp on it, but we had another winter storm while I was at Steph's and decided to just get myself home.
I want it to be spring. I don't usually look forward to the warm weather, but I am excited for this project to start. I am sure it will take a long time due to scheduling, skills, and MONEY, but I think it will be fun. My father thinks it is hilarious that she and I are going to do this, but he seems pretty excited about it.
I guess I just feel like I am just sitting around waiting for all of my 'projects' to start. In the meantime, I need to get serious about my job search, too.
