Busy busy. Lots going on, as usual!

This morning I had a doctor's appointment and am having a slight issue with my back. I pulled it back in 2001 when I was 16 and performing in professional theater every night as a dancer. I remember I did a layout on stage, and came off stage saying that I pulled my back. I then had a KNOT in my back for weeks and was like, a lump.

Years have gone by, and that same area has been a lump, and then at times- not been a lump.

I have had it checked out, and have been told it's muscle that sorta healed together in a lump - and today I was told the same thing. It's fibrosis type scar tissue that healed oddly and when it gets re-hurt, enflames, which is what it did this past weekend. So, I got a nice massage out of it and electrodes. It feels better already! So, it kinda freaked me out to have a 'lump' in my back, but at least I know exactly what caused it and how to make it feel better, pronto. It also turned out to be exactly what I thought it would be.

I got another new client today, who even paid fully in advance. Sweet. I'm really excited to work on the site!

Yesterday I ended up watching "The Lake House" twice. I got it off of HBO on Demand in the morning, and watched it while I did some web design work with my mom. Then, my sister, Jim and my father discussed interest in seeing it, so I watched it again with them. I enjoyed it, both times, and the last time I saw it, but it's kinda funny that I watch the same movie twice in one day!

This week is going to be crazy as well. I have school starting up again and various appointments and meetings - including getting my hair highlighted! Woohoo!

I want to sew another pair of boxers for Dave before Valentine's day. I think I should be able to do so!

Back to work. Lots going on!

I can't believe you already finished one pair of boxers! Did you take a picture? Not that he would want you showing the world his underwear but I'm just curious. I want a new sewing machine sooo badly. In fact, we got rid of my really super crappy one a couple weeks ago, and decided it would be worth the investment to buy a new one when we get out to CA. Yippee!!! :P Won't be ridiculously fancy but I'll take a $200-300 one just fine thanks! Maybe after tax return.. hmm.. Well it will come in handy to have a fully functioning sewing machine when I start my fashion design school. Haha.

That stinks about your back - look on the bright side though, at least no disc is fractured or slipped! Back muscle injuries are definitely better off than spine injuries, but the pain for both of them is that they never 100% go away. The job I was just at was an orthopedic practice and we had a back surgeon.. those poor people went through so much treatment, many of them surgery. Awful.

I shall post a pic! I fully intended to, then never got around to it. Which reminds me - I'll recharge my camera batteries while I'm at work.

Boxers aren't super complicated, so I can whip 'em out quickly. Did you see the dinosaur pair I made him for Christmas? They're fun too. These are red flannel with snowboarders on them!!
