oops, I did it again. For the eighth time.

I may have told this story already, but in 2004 I was working at a job that I hated.  I had two bosses, one of whom I loved, and the other one who made me dread going to work every day.  One morning I woke up with the usual feeling of dread and despair in my stomach, stared at the ceiling and thought, I wish I didn't have to go to work today.

I rolled over to get out of bed and felt a familiar crunching in my upper back.  I was immediately immobilized with paralyzing pain from the middle of my head to the middle of my back, having just sprained my neck for the second time.  Crap, I thought.  I should have been more specific about not going to work.

Lately I have been feeling crazed and stressed over a bunch of things going on.  Just last night I was wishing for a few minutes to just sit down and breathe.

You can see where this is going, right?

Yes, I sprained my neck again this morning brushing my teeth.  I am so talented. So I have plenty of time to sit on my sofa and just relax now.

Be careful what you wish for.  Because my "relaxing" involves pain, muscle relaxers, and children running amok in my living room since I can't drive them to preschool.

I am obsessed with this Beyonce song right now.  Princess and Peter are dancing around, shaking it.  Although Princess keeps asking for me to play some Alan Jackson on my computer.  :-)
