In which i hurt myself doing nothing


Do you know what’s interesting? Well maybe it’s not so interesting but it’s what always occurs. On Saturday Kevin and I were hosing off the deck and all the deck furniture and trying to power wash all the cushions and stuff.


That’s because everything was green with pollen so you couldn’t actually use anything around here and also because W(h)ine with Lynn is at my house on Wednesday. At any rate I was doing all the washing with the hose and Kevin was scrubbing the cushions because obviously, Kevin always gets the worse job.


That’s pretty much part of our marriage contract. Basically Kevin always has to do the harder job even though he’s falling apart in each and every joint.


Anyhow, we were doing all this stuff and I was being really careful and I went up to the porch to bring some cushions down. Now I didn’t want to hurt myself so I only picked up two cushions but in doing so, I pulled a muscle in my back.


Unbelievable right? I’m washing and cleaning and getting the hose ready and all that is fine and I pick up two fucking cushions and bam! My back goes out.


Why is that?


Why do we do all this stuff and we’re fine and then we hurt ourselves doing the stupidest things?


The most common time my neck goes out is when I’m sleeping. What occurs when I’m sleeping? No really, I have no clue because basically I’m asleep! But I always hurt my neck then.


Sometimes I hurt my back just getting up from the couch which just goes to show that I should just be a lazy shit all day and never get off the couch because the simple act of rising is dangerous apparently.


Anyways, I didn’t go work out on Sunday so I could rest my back that was stupidly hurt but today I did go work out (I’m writing this on Monday) and it’s hurting but so far, so good.


I just find it strange that I constantly hurt myself doing nothing and I never hurt myself doing something but how can you just do something all the time? It’s not possible right???


Okay, that’s it. I’m calling this a post.

    I have put my neck out sniffing. Not sneezing (thought I tell people it was) but sniffing. I suffer dreadfully from hayfever so sometimes do sniff a lot, dreadful I know but can’t be helped. And this has happened more than once!

      ugghhh…it’s the worst being such a delicate flower!

  2. You reminded me of what iIused to call The Sippy Cup Syndrome.
    You would be driving, have to reach back to grab the cup for the child … and while reaching you just knew you were going to pull something … and then you did.

    Being a delicate flower, TRULY, is a tough cross to bear.

    try wrenching your back while flipping your head over to blow dry your hair, something I do on a daily basis, but this one day it decides to pull something and it hurt for three freekin days!
