All it took was a little injury to make me realize how very very much I like being strong and healthy of body.
And the injury was (is) small. I made the stupid mistake of trying to lift the dog on to our bed. This was after he tried – and failed – to jump up on his own due to stiff legs after our 3000′ hike up to and down from a cabin for new year’s eve. So instead of just letting Mingus curl up on his own – perfectly comfortable and soft – dog bed, I got up and tried to lift him into ours. I neglected to notice that my legs were also pretty damn stiff after hiking down from the cabin and I put all of my effort into lifting the dog with my lower back. Ouch. Ya, I pulled something.
The good news is that now, 13 days later, it’s feeling much better. Three physio appointments, 1 massage therapy session, some tears and it’s better. The pain isn’t gone but it’s going. And I am so.very.grateful.
So happy new year. May it be a healthful one. Happy new blog. I brought the old content over here with me though. I don’t like forgetting where or what I used to be. And happy new hair. I’m ready to grow it out a bit. Let’s see where this year goes.
