Thursday


It was overcast, but still relatively warm on Thursday morning, so I didn’t wear my jacket.

I went to Big Boy’s for lunch and got my favorite waitress and my favorite meal: veal Parmesan with a Caesar side salad.

Back home after work, I cubes three peeled russet potatoes and put them in the Dutch oven. I topped them with a bag of sauerkraut and then sliced smoked sausage. I brought that to a boil, turned it to simmer and covered it.

Then I went outside to deal with the hose box. I unhooked it from the house faucet and then ran the two hoses out. They are ¾ inch heavy rubber, BTW and both 75 feet long. I drained them and moved the now-lighter box next to the shed. Then I reeled the hoses back into the box.

I opened the shed and lifted the box to put it in the trailer. Bad idea…

I heard (and felt) a noise like a rubber band breaking in my right shoulder (the one I had the rotator cuff surgery on) and that arm went numb. I got the hose box in the wagon, locked up the shed and went back inside.

I plated my dinner (with my left hand) and ate an excellent dinner.

I watched TV and my arm slowly stopped being numb, but it replaced that with pain.

Sidebar: I liked numb better!!!

I don’t have pain pills in the house, so I spent an uncomfortable night, trying to sleep.

  3. @Carla: I did that a while ago. She said just to take an extra Celebrex. But I forgot last night.
    @Jyl: You're kidding, right?

  5. Seamonkey farming doesn't have nearly as many potential injuries involved and we've been able to make a good life for ourselves.
