Thursday, Pain in my neck!

     I am not talking about my mother, but I have a pain in my neck!  Running down the right back side. It hurts to turn and to swallow sometimes.  Last night was miserable as I could hardly sleep.  But this morning is better.  I will not be doing Mother Ginger tonight because of it and have refitted the costume for another.

     Ten hours in the car yesterday probably did not help.  Long day and mom was asleep in bed when I got home from the theater. She is so thin, it is like she is wasting away, but she seems happy and she was ready to go when I got to her place.  This means she flew home on Tuesday and got in at 10 p.m. and did not unpack her suitcase was up and ready for me to pick her up the next afternoon.  Pretty good for a sick old lady!  Now you know where I get my stamina.

     I have a lot to do today before I hit the theater.  Mostly sewing, laundry and general cleaning up.  Where does the laundry come from?  I mean I feel like that is all I do.  I guess two sweaty dance bodies a day?  I don't know and maybe the clothes are heavier as it is cold outside.  I also did all the bedding on two beds so that will contribute,  Blah!

     I must pay a few bills today, money is so tight that I am paying as I go what has to be paid. I am so afraid of not having enough when something crucial arises.

     I am going to get mom busy cooking or I should say baking some Christmas things. I have all the ingredients so that won't be a problem.  I am just so happy she is here.

The bathtub is calling and I have already had two customers here.  I am in my pink stripped jammies and I am not cute.

Have a great and productive day!



  1. I bet you are cute in your jammies.

  2. I see customers in my jammies as well. They all know me well for it now! Since I am not an early riser though and they insist on showing up before 9 am. That is what they get!

    Your neck pain sounds like stress. Do you let anyone massage it for you? It sounds like it would do a world of good.

  3. Oh sweetie...I can relate! My neck has been bothering for the past two days. :)

  4. My neck would hurt too if I did all that you do each day. Driving is really bad for that area as you're sitting in one position for so long. Enjoy your mom's visit - how long is she staying for ?

  5. I hope your pain goes away so you can be productive!! How nice that your mom is there with you!

  6. Yikes! Your painful neck can be a huge obstacle when it comes to performing most of your daily activities. I'm sure your productivity at work will also lessen because of that. In any case, I hope you've found a healthy solution for your painful neck by now, or that you have already consulted a specialist for it. Thanks for sharing that, Kim! Take care! :)

  7. The pun about our mom was pretty hilarious! Although, I don’t think I’ll be using that where my mom could see or hear it. Haha! Anyway, neck pains do occur to a lot of people, but most of us tend to ignore it. Because most of the time, the pain goes away after a few hours or after a good night’s rest. But I think it is one issue that we should be taking seriously, since the neck is a very sensitive part of our body. In any case, I hope your encounters with neck pain aren’t that serious. Thanks for sharing!
