welcome to my uneventful life

Today I am nursing a stiff upper back and shoulder. I wish I could tell some harrowing tale of daring do. I wish I could claim to have thrown out my shoulder in a sports game or saving someone from a purse snatcher (remember Crocodile Dundee?). I even wish I could say that I tripped and fell. Alas, all I can say is that I went grocery shopping. It wasn’t even Double Coupon day.

I have some minor arthritisy thing going on in my shoulder. This is absolutely a non-issue if I have been working out and keeping the muscles there tighter. Since I haven’t been doing that this summer (!) it will sometimes start to bother me.

It took me quite a while to figure out what I did to set it off. Finally, as I lay in bed trying to find a comfortable position, it occurred to me what it must have been.

But, I suppose I should start at the beginning of these non eventful couple of days.

On Thursday I discovered that I was VERY LOW on creamer for my coffee. But, since I had a coffee date with a friend that afternoon, I did not PANIC or FREAK OUT. I sent a text to my friend to say, “Hey, we still on for today?” She replied, “Uh, no. It’s tomorrow.”


But that was ok because my husband was out and about and should be able to pick some up on his way home. But several hours of errands later (including a stop to pick up pizza for dinner that had an extra 20 minutes tacked on to search for his debit card because the counter girl STUCK IT IN HER POCKET!) he forgot all about the creamer.

Friday morning I had to implement my coffee back up plan. I use those international café powdered coffee mixes. They need to put some suggestions for how much to use on the box.  I made mine a leetle bit strong.

I went to Starbucks with my friend. NOTE: they need bigger chairs outside. Strawberry lemonade blended was good. So was the iced lemon pound cake.

Then went to the thrift store to buy baby clothes for a friend. Nothing noteworthy happened there.

After that, I went to  the grocery store. I just went in for the one thing (creamer, remember?). So I didn’t grab a cart. Then I remembered a couple other things I needed so went and grabbed a basket. That was my mistake. It was a bunch of milks and meat. Pretty heavy stuff, so it aggravated my shoulder problem.

Today is a cloudy, rainy, ibuprofeny day.


Today I am grateful for CREAMER!!!, ibuprofen, strawberry lemonade, leftovers, and backrubs

    Resale shopping for baby clothes, whether for mine or a friend’s, is one of my favorite things to do. Uneventful, maybe, but productive and thoughtful (and green!). Makes me think about connecting.
