I am an old woman

Or at least I feel like one.

I sneezed while putting on my jacket yesterday morning and I pulled something in my back.

Now who does that?????

My back loosened up during the day -- pretty easy since I'm always on my feet at school, but at yoga I bent forward and it started to spasm.


I limped around my house all last night and I'm continuing to do the "old lady" walk today.

Someone once told me that lower back pain means that I worry about money. Which I do. A lot.

Have I mentioned that Mr. JB bought a car? Yes, the car that he wanted. Red, loaded with every option available and it also comes with SEVEN years of car payments (the only way to get the monthly down to under $400). 


Oh well, I'm sure it won't be that bad when we finally have it and drive it around. Besides, I did get that job this summer and we will have extra cash (in theory!). 

I can't wait to see my chiropractor after school. I hate hobbling around! 


  1. Sorry to hear about your back. Hopefully a chiropractor can get the kink out.

    YAY about the car. That's awesome. 7 years?! I didn't even know they financed cars for that long. I'm soo out of the loop!

    Hope you feel better soon.

  2. I really thought you were going to say you sneezed and pee'd a little!!! LOL. Sorry you hurt your back, I don't think it's age, it just happens sometimes! Get better!

  3. Sorry about your back. I don't think it's age. Wow, 7 years of car payments; I hope he loves it a lot.

  4. You poor thing! I'm so sorry about the back pain! I will pray that it goes away quickly.

  5. Sorry to hear of the back pains and I hope that it goes away soon.

    Looking forward to hearing about you taking the new car for a spin!

  6. Could be worse. You could have sneezed and peed yourself.

    You and I are a good pair, with your pulled back muscle and my shingles :) Let's get together with Sew and crochet and complain about how hot it is.

  7. That car sounds like it would match well with your red coach purse ;)

    I hope you feel better soon,

  8. Oh that sucks about your back. I totally get the feeling of being an old woman, because I've felt that way myself. Someones I feel old, but other times feel somewhat young. It's all relative to others and to our own experiences, eh?

    But nothing says young like a red car. Sounds like fun!!

  9. sorry about your bad! Hopefully the chiropractor helps!

  10. That stinks. I've done that before. The hidden dangers of sneezing!!

  11. Oh no! Sorry about your back. I definitely get back pains, especially my lower back (related to my cycles).
    Would a hot bath help a bit?
    Hope you feel better soon!
