I have a good case of sciatica, and hope I can get over it before I get on the plane for NY. I realize what causes it, and it's all my fault. With my worsening eyesight I need to hold my laptop closer to me, but my arms get tired. So I twist slightly and rest my left arm and the computer on the arm of the chair. Right now I'm using ice, 15 min. on and 15 min. off, and hope I can beat it before it gets too bad. It's hell trying to sit down, stand up, and forget getting in and out of bed! The most annoying part is that I can't take any kind of OTC for the pain - they all give me terrifying side effects due to my heart disease, so I hope the ice works, plus my attempt at focusing my mind on healing.
I had a re-exam at the chiropractor today, and my scoliosis is nearly completely cured. The Dr. took an X-ray which he will show me the along with the xray taken by Dr. Bergman in Huntington Beach last June, and I can see the difference in my spine after treatment.
I looked for photo storage boxes at Michael's yesterday. None of the boxes is acid free cardboard, nor do any of them have tabbed dividers. Michael's doesn't sell any tabbed dividers that I can use, and I don't want to have to make my own or modify something to fit. I have ordered two photo boxes with tabs, from an online company. I hope to get them soon, and if they work out I will order some more. I have continued to weed out photos from the thousands of paper photos I have, plus I recorded the ID's of the digital photos I'd like to have printed.
I'm feeling pretty good about what I've accomplished and can't wait to see how things look when all the donations from my living room are set out on Thursday morning. Steve and I are going to Home Depot and Lowes later this week, so I may end up with a bathtub in my living room! He's going to start with the tile and tub, plus the new window, the grab bars (don't need them yet, but probably will eventually). The toilet, sink top and floor can be done while I'm in NY, and then when I get back I will need to paint the walls & ceiling.
