Happy Hump Day...harrumph!

Middle of the week ... as Steve says, "It's better than Monday, but not as good as Friday."

It has not been a good day.

I hurt my back this morning. It was feeling better until today. This morning I needed to stop at Kroger on the way to work, to pick up some sugar-free liquid Coffee Mate, because I use it in my coffee at work instead of the powdered stuff they provide (which tastes fine, but is filled with high fructose corn syrup...therefore, is EVIL).

So, I'm hurrying through Kroger and ... I truly don't know what I did. Apparently, I moved the wrong way, though. Immediately I felt it spasm and thought, "uh oh!" So all day it's been "twingey". I took three Advil as soon as I got to the office, and I put ice on it a couple times for 15-20 minutes. It still hurts tonight.

Today is "Administrative Professional Day", formerly known as Secretary's Day. We always get something at the Firm; this year it was an "edible arrangement" of chocolate covered strawberries. Great...just great. I mean, it's a nice gesture, but give me a break... (Need I say, I love chocolate covered strawberries?)

I brought the arrangement home, intending to give it to Steve and not have any. But did that happen? Nooooooooooo, it did not! I ate several of them ... I would think about a DOZEN in total. <SIGH>

So I'll say it again ... it has not been a good day. However, as my favorite Scarlett O'Hara line says, "Tomorrow is another day!"

I'm so sorry you hurt your back again. I wish I could do something for you.
As far as the the strawberries goes, it was a simple slip up. It' not like it's not going to happen again, you've done amazingly well. So Please do beat yourself up about them. And at least it was a little chocolate on a realively low carb fruit. It could have been pure sugar through and through.
I think your doing great.
Now if you could just find something to help that poor back of yours.
