Sorry about the lapse. . . .

I’ve been kind of busy, but mostly suffering an injury. I’ve had lower back problems for years — whether genetic or a result of all those 350-pound squats I did in the ’90s, I don’t know — and it seized up last Thursday and hasn’t let up much since. Not sure what caused it, it’s been pretty good for the last 3-4 years; I have some trouble with it occasionally, but not much and usually it’s short term. But this time it’s hurt a LOT and has refused to get a whole lot better. It’s muscle spasms that can be a dull ache or a shooting pain and only certain types of sitting down seem to not bother it. That might actually be the source of it, sitting down all day. I’ve been a month back at a desk job half time and I’m wondering if that’s not weakened the muscles. So anyway, I’m home all day tomorrow, albeit preparing chapters of our monograph for printing, but I should get some posting in.

  1. Ouch! Figuratively and literally… And yes, I feel your pain – I did some lifting for a company I worked for years ago – and nerver been the same. But don’t worry about it – you will be able to bore the grandkids with Tales From The Creeky back for years. But weriously, take care, take some drugs if you have any, and get somebody to wait on you and treat you like a Pharoh. One of the good ones.

  2. Oddly, I found that digging shovel probes all day didn’t really bother the ol’ back (that got my left wrist), but I think sitting all day is deadly.
