Down on my Knees
The last few days, I’ve been having back problems again. They’ve been creeping up on me. A few days ago, my legs gave out on me again because of sharp pains in my back. It was settling down a little until this evening.
Today, I had to deliver and assemble a computer system which included a new “all in one” laser printer. When it was delivered, they sent 2 people on the UPS truck to lift it. They said it was 85 lbs. It was a big, awkward, cumbersome box. I got it into the car by myself today and got it out of the car and into the client’s garage. I decided it would be easier to unpack it and make the size more manageable. So, I unpacked it. By that time, the client came back and she helped me carry it to the basement.
I got home late tonight and went to get my tea out of the refrigerator and instantly went down on my knees. And I couldn’t get up. So, I was on my knees with the door standing open… trying to get into position to get back up. After awhile, I finally managed to get up. I’ve taken it easy the last couple of hours, hoping to get it to settle down. It probably would be worse, but I had stopped after leaving the client’s home, to get some advil because I was getting a killer headache.
I have lots to do tomorrow, including a 2 hour one way drive to a courthouse to work. Sigh.
