All I hear from my Chiropractor & massage therapist is how tight my muscles are.  Yes this nerve thing is driving me crazy.  At the moment, I could lay down anywhere, the couch is just slightly closer to food & the washroom, I hope I don’t get confused & get food from the washroom?!  Anyways, sorry but I’ll be mostly offline this week.  I really can’t sit in my chair for too long.

Friday night we had a birthday party for a Cabbage Patch kid.  We were babysitting for friends, their daughter of 3 years old.  Pizza, birthday cake, & I had some leftover veggies.  REALLY Kim?  Vegetables with pizza????  Since when do you have pizza with a side of broccoli??????   I don’t think a few pieces of broccoli cancel the effects of pizza & birthday cake, nice try though!

After we heard the “Frozen” soundtrack, we watched “Paw Patrol” & “Rainbow Rock”.  “Rainbow Rock” was my child metal for the evening, she knew the words to most of the songs & chimed in a bit before the cartoon started singing the lyrics!

“Paw Patrol” might be my new favourite show!

Saturday afternoon, Mitch & Rachel came over to watch the concert DVD I got a little while ago by “In Flames”.  I got it through amazon.ca.  My mother ordered it since she has next day shipping.  It was a month late since it wasn’t released in North America.  It was shipped from Germany & had would only play on European made players.  The Blu-ray had the regional restrictions on amazon, the DVD didn’t though.  Fortunately my dad had a non-regionally restricted DVD player sitting around so I could watch it.

Saturday night, leftovers, couch & we rented “Finding Dory”.

 

This sciatic nerve crap should be gone by now, but NO.  When you wake up around 3:00 am, can’t get comfortable & fall asleep until around 5:00 am, you know it’s still a problem!  It’s a dull pain, then a brief sharp pain when I move my leg.  “In the end” it’s more of an annoyance than anything.  It’s preventing me from doing EVERYTHING!  I’d really like to do my exercise, said no one ever, but it’s painful to even try doing them.  It’s getting far beyond ridiculous!

 

 

That’s quite the list of celebrities for a protest!  It’s already working, I’m talking about it, so it is working.

3 Chiropractor appointments & 1 massage therapy session on my lower back, right butt cheek, & right leg.  The 3rd trip to my Chiropractor really helped!!  Only problem was the muscles would tighten up overnight.  I’d like to do some mild exercise but it hurts even when I transfer to my wheelchair.  Friday will be all stretching.  Actually, I’ll just continue to stretch until it’s gone.  “Right now” it’s just annoying.  I’ll stand up, have a brief pain & try not to do much.  It only hurts when I move.  Sitting or laying down on my left side or on my back, I’m fine.  Seems like my body just gave up on me.  I’ve decided to take it easy for the month.

I’ve never really been to a massage therapist.  My cousin is a massage therapist though, out of province though.  I was getting up to put my shirt on & ended up breaking the massage table.  I felt like an idiot, snapped the face hole right off.  She said it wasn’t a big deal.  She’ll get a new table from amazon.  Of course we’re going to pay the $20 for it, I just felt so bad.  Lesson learned “Do not put any weight on that part of the table”!

Without doing any exercise it gets EXTREMELY boring for me.  It makes for a very long day.

This just got me riled up!

My brother’s a big fan of Finger Eleven, naturally I got into Finger Eleven & he got into Foo Fighters.  I usually put on the most recent release from Finger Eleven, “Five Crooked Lines” lately I tend to listen to their first album, Tip, or the album they made when they were called “The Rainbow Butt Monkeys”

Yes, we covered this song.  I love this song!!!!!

All of this is from the past week.  I started writing this on Friday all of the information on this post, is a week of music info on Facebook.

My nerve is much better after 2 visits to the Chiropractor.  More stretching & one more visit should do the trick.  On my side overnight the doctor recommended a pillow between my knees, WAY better.  When the pain is completely gone, I’ll cut WAY back on my exercises until January.  So this is nothing more than an update.  A poor way to end a good year of exercising.  Good time to slow down though.

If retired life without a driving license is me sitting on the couch, I’ll do whatever I can to go back to work or get a license!  HOLY BORING!  I think I’m done with Netflix……………..I think I’ve watched it all.  I’m pretty sure I’ve seen “Deadpool” & “Batman vs. Superman” too many times!  Next……..”Star Wars: Episode VII The Force Awakens” for the 10th time!  I listened to a PILE of music also while trying to get comfy on the couch.  Listening to whatever I had purchased this year & I’ve been working on my albums of 2016 since near the end of October.

This is the clean trailer & it still contains LANGUAGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  It’s a lot like an action movie that was handed to Kevin Smith to write the dialogue.  HILARIOUS!  I guess the script was written & re-written over the course of a decade!

Until this literal pain in my arse goes away.  It will be a very tame/quiet week.  I’ll continue to blog though, more stuff about my day & of course pop culture stuff.  Brewster’s new kennel didn’t get here on Friday, Kim may have to pick it up on her “…way home…”   I’m hoping to get “back in the saddle” by tomorrow.  I guess I’ll see what happens?

 

Here’s a sample of what I’ve been listening to while massaging my butt with a vibrator & stretching, stupid delete button isn’t working.  That didn’t come out right.  I’ve pinched my sciatic nerve & can’t really put much weight on my right side or leg when doing anything.

No I haven’t bought Metallica’s album yet.  I’m waiting until the funds for iTunes.  Listening to it on our Apple Music account.

What did we do this weekend?  Nothing.  Kim got a new artificial, pre lit, Christmas tree Saturday since she tried the lights on our old one, some blinked, some stayed on, & the other set didn’t work at all.  I’m not excited for Christmas yet.  I need snow.  Without snow it just doesn’t feel like Christmas yet.  Our inside looks like Christmas, our outside……………………not so much.

I’ve aggravated a muscle in my right butt cheek.  I’ll be stretching & massaging my thigh & bottom until it’s gone.  I hope it’s gone soon!  It hurts when I do anything but staying still with the least amount of weight on my right side.

 

Thank goodness!  Yoda looked like a garden gnome!
