Who is eating potato chips on the couch?

That would be me. What is my problem? What happened to my skinny dream?  I already had a fudgsicle today. I’m thinking about the bon bons in the freezer now. I don’t get it. Maybe I’m just frustrated today. My back hurts again. I was fine all weekend — hours of gardening, hours of packing up my car with speakers — lifting, bending, standing, sitting — and to top it off I spent all day Sunday sitting in the car.

Today I had a plan — Drew was using my car while hiswas in the shop. I’ll spendthe day cleaningup — damn, what iswith this computer — my Apple warranty is over and now the keyboard isgiving me problems. Today it is the space bar. The other day it was the letter B.

It’s dark, it’sthundering, but stillno rain.

So today  I’mcleaning the living room, the dining room, and I get to the bathroom . . . I’mgetting a lot done. I spray the glass shower door and reach up to wipe it down — and that’s when ithappened. I must have pulled a muscle. Nothappy!! Pain.

Where is the rain? My flowers need rain. Thunder, wind but no rain!

I’mpretty sure I would feel better if I had a dark chocolate bar to munch on. The Yankee game is on rain delay . . . which isprobably a good thing and this space bar problem isdrivingme (and you crazy.)

Gotta go.

Whipping With Scallions

Barely made it through the seder last night. My leg has been hurting for days and Sunday I felt a twinge in my back — only the right side. Sometime in the afternoon the day of the seder my back went out. I took aleve, I iced my back. I didn’t know how I was going to make it through the night. I think I mentioned this in yesterday’s post.

Well, I barely made it through the night. Didn’t think I would be able to get up off the couch by time everyone left. Hannah did a lot of the cooking yesterday. I walked around the table and placed the silverware — that was about all I could handle.

The seder was fun. We Skyped, read, we sang, we drank, we whipped each other silly with scallions, and we ate. The Moroccan carrot swiss chard salad was a hit. Next year we will have to triple the recipe and, as usual, Cousin Paulie’s cheesecake was loved by all. Hardly anything left the next day. I was fading quickly throughout the meal.

Tanya and Thera have become the new Pam and Jan. Jumping up to help even before I get out of my chair. Rachel took forever to eat. I think the dishwasher was running and all the food was put away before she took her last bite.

I’m tired and have to lay down now and ice my back and already it is late. Probably take another aleve to get me through the night. Made it through the second seder at Eli and Jenny’s. Took lots of pictures with my new camera. Did I mention my new camera that I think I got for my birthday? It’s a Canon G12 and I think I like it. Still small enough to fit in my pocket.

Damn, Drew’s relaxing on the couch. Gotta go annoy him.
