Numb nuts

Since the numbness is still in my left butt cheek and the back of my left leg, I made an appointment with a spine specialist today. After going to the Chiro four times last week with no changes, I figured it’s time to kick it up a notch. I’ll let you know.

In other news, Trey seems to have become afraid of going outside. He even peed on the carpet last night while I was standing in my bathroom. To say I overreacted is an understatement. I literally dragged his ass outside and shoved him out the back door. Then I felt bad about it, but I won’t put up with him peeing in the house. This morning, though, he was still hesitant to go out, but I didn’t have to drag him. I think the fact that I was home for the last 10 days threw him off his schedule.

Well, that’s about all to report. Back at work today and it’s SO exciting.

A whole month?

Holy crap…I’ve not posted in over a month? Hmm…

To start off 2007 right, I was going to have a big blowout with friends, get drunk, throw up, and start over again. Instead, I ended up spending the weekend on my couch, with a 45 pound three-legged chicken sitting on my chest. Trey hates fireworks almost as much as thunderstorms. As I type this, he’s lying under my desk.

I was on the couch because I’ve hurt my back…again. Went to the chiropractor Friday, cleaned the house Saturday, and was up at 3 in the morning with an aching back. Thank the Lord for Bengay, Tylenol, and heating pads. I’m a tad nervous, though, because I’ve got some numbness down the middle of my left butt cheek and into my left leg. I’ve had some numbness for years from when I hurt it the last time. The neurologist I was seeing at the time said it was fine as long as I didn’t lose any strength in my leg (or in my ass too, I guess). Now, though, it seems a tad worse. I’ll give it a week or so of treatment with the chiro to see how it goes.

In other news, I’ve made a list of my 2007 goals for this year. I did pretty well last year, so we’re going to do this again. They are as follows in no particular order:

– Lose weight (again)…don’t ask.

– Learn to cook for 1 (I’m through with the 3 cans of tuna a day routine)

– Keep weight off for minimum of 6 months

– Put a minimum of 1,000 miles on my bike

– Ride the 2007 MS150 (Update: Newest member of Team FedEx for 2007!)

– Finish painting my home (to be done before May ’07)

– Decorate said home so it looks like someone actually lives here

– Post more than once a month

– And finally, see someone about the mild panic attacks I’ve been having

Well, Dear Reader, that’s all for right now. I hope each of you has a wonderful 2007. Be sure to check back again for more updates.
