It is grey outside, and I've heard thunder. This means Mamma Munch has no doubt gone into her "safe place" and won't come out for a while. She is much afraid of thunder and other similar loud noises. One of our neighbor friends is due over sometime around 09:30 - 10:00 this morning to feed the ranch critters, because my back is still not up to slinging feed buckets.

This means also that I won't be putting any plywood down on the floor in Studio 318, either.

Very stiff when I woke up; did some stretching before I even tried to get out of bed, think that helped. Things are better, as I was able to roll onto either side through the night when I'd wake up for needing to change position. I'd not call myself a restless sleeper because I don't usually wake myself up. SWMBO does not hold the same opinion.

She is also off to Deltona to take care of estate business. They are gearing up for the estate sale of those items none of the siblings care to claim. The good news is, she's been getting some help from siblings on this, as opposed to the inventory process which was pretty much left to her alone. Different folks, different methods of mourning.

I figure on keeping up my back meds through the weekend. Monday morning I'll need to decide if I'm ready to resume full duty. If not, then I need to make an appointment or just go see someone in a quick-care type place. Need a physician to sign off on extending the no-lifting light duty orders. I might be ready. You need not doubt that I'll be really conscious about how much weight I will sling around. And, no, Doctor, I'm not worried at all about it affecting your room turnover time. I will happily document the delay being due to your nurse can't lift for sh*t.

  • Where Have I Been?

    Yes, it's been ages. I freely admit, I followed the tide (rather than fight it) over to That Faciem Liber place. Which isn't exactly free, and…

  • Sabbatical

    Another blog sabbatical, of sorts, all based on a 'convenience' factor and feeling excessively busy. Busy with what? Life, the Universe, and…

  • State of the Artist

    When last we visited Mad Shutterbug for a State of the Artist the calendar year showed 2014. In reality it's been about two and a half months, so…
