The Story of How I Became a Gimp

I take pride in the fact that I always keep a positive attitude on the blog. I mean, seriously…no one wants to log into and read something where all the author ever does is complain all the time, right?ย Well, negative things are bound to happen in this life.

The trick is to keep the “glass half-full” mindset.

You see, this weekend, BB and I were having a pretty mellow and chill weekend…we watched a couple of movies, took a long drive that included some picture-taking for me and fishing for him…which I guess is becoming “our thing”…not that I mind! ๐Ÿ˜‰

So I guess you could call it kind of un-eventful…

Until yesterday afternoon.

I had just hit publish on one of the best Pancake Celebration posts ever, and went back to the office to grab a magazine. I bent down on all fours to get the one I wanted and all of a sudden…


A sharp pain shot through the lower part of my back like I had just been shot. I went straight to the floor and called out through tears to BB who came running from the living room. He had to pick me up off the floor and help me walk to the couch.

Since then, I’ve been hobbling around like an 80 year old, unable to bend forward past 45 degrees.

My back has been sore since I got off of work on Thursday night but I can’t for the life of me remember any particular incident that would’ve put strain on my lower back. Good news is I have a wonderful and understanding boss and I was able to take today and tomorrow off work.

I have an appointment with my orthopedic doctor tomorrow morning. I’m sure it’s just a pulled muscle, but with me being so young, I’d hate to ignore it and then later on down the road find out it was something more. I’ll be sure to let you guys know how the appointment goes.

In the mean time, take a minute to celebrate with me. Knowing I had absolutely NOTHING in the house in the way of dinner for tonight and not wanting to order in, I shuffled my way into Kroger this afternoon to pick up some steaks for BB and me.

Of course I had to stagger down a few choice aisles…
And you’ll never believe what I found…

Obviously I had to grab a “few” ๐Ÿ˜‰

4 large plain 2%’s, 16 small plain 0%’s, 10 passion fruits, and 5 honeys
all for the lovely price of $29.45 + tax!

Exact quote from BB: “Wow! This should last us….a week!” ๐Ÿ˜†

Dare I say there was a reason that I was off today??

And as for the steaks?

They’re finishing up a nice soak right now.

Just in time for BB to get here and take over the rest of dinner!

Do you usually go to the doctor right away when you’re sick/injured or wait it out?

When you spot a killer sale, do you grab them all or does the guilt set in that you’re keeping someone else from a deal and you only get a few?
I’ll admit, I usually feel a tinge of guilt, but then I just flick that little angel off my shoulder and say to myself, “Hey, I was here first!” ๐Ÿ˜‰
