Okay seriously this day needs to last more than 24 hours. I have sooooooooooo much to get done today and considering I jacked up my ‘good’ shoulder yesterday pretty bad, it’s going to be cutting it close to the wire to get it all done. But I’ll manage, I always do.
So let’s see, what’s new in my world? Well my radiator decided to start leaking ANNNNNNNNND my condenser decided to break which meant in the 90+ degree weather and 876% humidity I drove around with little to no air conditioning. Since the leak wasn’t too bad I drove to work while carrying extra neon stuff in my car while we waited for the new part to come in. Now I could have easily went and bought a new car but here’s the thing – I’m stubborn. No, really, I’m stubborn. Imagine that! *wink* I don’t want to invest in a new car while I still drive over 100+ miles a day for work. It’s not worth it and it’ll just end up putting more wear and tear on the car. Right now Mr. Fantabulous has my car apart and is waiting on one more part to come in that was supposed to be in yesterday. Let’s pray it comes in soon as I need my car for work tomorrow.
Well I finally have my counter tops all finished and in. They look beautiful but dear God what an ABSOLUTE nightmare! I will never, never, NEVER use either company again. I’m still on the fence of exposing them publicly. What I will do is if any of you in the Pittsburgh or Ohio region want to know, email me and I’ll tell you who NOT to use.
Now the completion of my counter tops leads us to how I jacked up my shoulder yesterday pretty bad. I was in the process of putting my ‘stuff’ back into the cabinets and one of my last trips was putting away the cast iron pots and pans. I had about 15 of them at once (yeah I know, stupid) which weighed a good 50+ pounds easily. I bent over and picked them up no biggie. As I was walking from where we stored them to the kitchen I felt a ‘twinge’ in my good shoulder and then this “POP” that literally took my breath away. Immediately white hot searing fire went into my shoulder, I dropped the pans (thankfully onto these rubber mats we have in our gym) and down I went. Did you ever get hurt so bad that you literally kinda just sit there, holding your breath and in shock? Yeah, that was me. Needless to say I’ve been babying it, icing it and even took happy pills last night.
Today it still hurts pretty bad but if it’s no better by middle/end of the week I’ll go see my shoulder doc. Like I said, stubborn.
