Happy days, Day Two

I've been grumpy and out-of-sorts today, my shoulder REALLY hurts and I couldn't get up the energy to get up and exercise (which does help, but a good night's sleep would get me moving), so I had to look hard for things to make me happy. I found a few: some really fun clips on You Tube when Dwight Yoakam was on Craig Ferguson (the two of them are dangerous together!), a very easy but delicious recipe for Thai sweet & sour pork, and there was at least one other tiny little thing, just something that brought a smile to my face, but now I can't remember what it was. I'm very bad at this!

Chuck makes me happy, but that was Monday (although I watched it again last night with sillymagpie. *grin*

Above-mentioned sillymagpie loaned me a copy of the book Pain Free, and I've started to go over it; from what I read so far, it doesn't sound to ME like I ever had a rotator cuff injury, but I'm not a doctor, what do I know? All I know now is it hurts almost all the time and it's hard to do simple things, like lifting, stirring, pushing, pulling, blah, blah, blah. I'm putting off seeing the doctor until after New Year's, so no lectures!

And I am tired. We've had the heat on because of the cold snap down here, but it's made the bedroom rather hot and once I wake up, I can't seem to get comfortable again. And while Phoenix didn't get snow like Las Vegas did (VEGAS!?!), it still got pretty danged cold. Of course, it may end here before we can blink, but it's nice to have a little winter weather.

Adopt one today! Adopt one today!

Adopt one today! Adopt one today!

I WILL get to bed early tonight, as I planned to last night. This time for sure.

and women tend toward shoulder issues.

Comforting to know (it actually feels better when I work out with the lateral pull-down, but I don't have one of those around the house, so I NEED to get to the gym. Mostly it hurts when I pull up, like lifting a jug of milk or holding a tray).

that sounds less like rotator cuff and more of a biceps issue

I'll mention that to my doctor when I see him.

the shoulder is a pretty complex bugger

I had something a little like that. Massage helped, and so did the exercises.

I'm hoping that after Christmas/New Year's I'll be able to sign up with Massage Envy so I can get regular massages for not-too-much money...
