Strange Friends for Strange Folks

I'm inching my way to the finish line, slowly and surely for the Strange Folk show.  I just have one pair of giraffe legs to do, one teeny tiny pair, and for the life of me I just couldn't do them today.  There is one sad, leg-less giraffe sitting next to her completely-limbed giraffe friends on my shelf.  "Don't worry, they're comin' sistah!"  In other limb news (I have to break my "no whiny" rule), I broke down and went to a chiropractor to seek out some relief from my repetitive strain injury and back problems.  This was my first visit to a chiropractor and I think things will go well----he did a thorough exam on me and showed genuine concern for the pain I have.  He also listened to and answered all of my questions which I have found to be a rare thing with doctors.....not to mention that in the waiting room was some freshly baked banana bread, so I am pretty sure I chose the right place.  Tomorrow he discusses his game plan with me.  Best case scenario for me is he cracks my bones and the pain immediately dissipates and afterwards I eat a slice of warm banana bread and go home to some fierce pillow monstering.

I agree. I had a great chiropractor and have been thinking of going back. I haven't been for two years, and I think I need it. I was going for limited movement in my neck and shoulders and it helped so much. Take care. Hugs.

Fresh baked goods are my kryptonite. I hope he's able to give you some relief.

To Godmother Nichol,

I'm sorry your back still hurts. I should be able to finally meet you sometime on or before Halloween b/c I'm quite large now, and to wait might make me to big to fit coming out.
