Packer Smacker

  • Congrats to the Wisconsin people who read here, Jess and Tiffany, on the big Super Bowl win for their beloved Packers.  I rooted for their team in the Super Bowl, but when they won I admit I had a sick feeling in my stomach.  Bring on 2011, the Year of the Bear!  (Delusion, my old friend, nice to have you back!)
  • I'm still in the 'burbs at my mom and dad's house.  Still pretty much bed-ridden.  Cooper is in high heaven.

  • Notice my mother giving me the side-eye in that picture.  I think she's sick of me.  Maybe she's poisoning my food.  If I die, you guys should inform the coroner of this blog.
  • My first day of physical therapy was yesterday.  The therapist discovered I have a strained and sprained SI joint, which is the joint joining your pelvis and your spine (I think, science has never been my strong suit).  The ligaments were so stretched that the joint was completely disconnected (technical term, I'm sure).  She got it back in place and taped it, did ultrasound therapy and shock therapy (not like in "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest") and she ordered me on bedrest until at least Friday.  I'm still in crazy pain but it's nice to at least have an idea of what the heck is going on now.  
  • If you're in Chicago, see "Les Miserables" at the Cadillac Theater.  My sisters, mom, aunt and beautiful goddaughter went on Saturday and it was incredible.  It's a new rendition of it without the revolving stage, but it's wonderful.  I'm still crying at the death scenes (or maybe the pain of sitting upright for three hours.)
  • That's about all the news that's fit to type out for today.  I would welcome book and movie recommendations if you've got them.  My sister Kerry gave me "Dark Places" by Chicagoan Gillian Flynn and it was terrific.

  2. Whenever I hear "Les Miserables", I think of the time Annie & Jessi put on a show of it (a shortened version) for my family in our front room. They had Kerry & Nick and maybe Biz & Tommy playing all the little parts and of course they were the stars. I'm sure nothing will ever top that production for me.

  3. Owie owie owie! The SI joint is one of two of the little knobby thingies on your lower back, like right where your butt starts, I think. I have a bad back too. We can be PT buddies! I did PT on and off for a year and now I see a chiro and he's awesome.
