Who Stabbed Me and Black Friday??

Okay, the turkey did thaw but of course I was up and down with the puppies all night so I overslept!! Talk about panic! I didn't get the turkey in til 10:00 and 30 minutes later I was reaching around my daughter Mollee, washing the celery sticks when I felt a gripping pain.

The pain got more intense and now I'm doubled over at the sink. Five people in my kitchen and still no one notices me so I cried out.  My hubby noticed then and came to my aid.

"What did you do now?"

"OMG who stabbed me in the back with a knife? Is it there? Pull it out, I can't breathe!"

"Gert (that's what he calls me), there is nothing there, what's wrong?"

"Pain! My upper left side...omg...what happened?"

He sits me down in a chair, I'm completely bent over and now I'm crying.  Of course this just had to happen on Thanksgiving morning at the start of making dinner.

It's my Rhomboid Muscle, the large muscle that connects your shoulder and shoulder blade to your spine.  It's unbelieveably painful!!!!

So our Thanksgiving dinner was made as a family, everyone pitched in and helped. The kitchen looked like a tornado went thru, i supervised hunched over like Quasi Moto, but they pulled it off and dinner was awesome.

I'm still hunched over in pain...icing, moist heat, sports gel and crying.  I guess this takes a couple weeks to heal.  I feel like such a dumb ass lol  who the hell does this much damage to their back washing celery sticks!?!

Sooooooo....despite all this I'm still having my BLACK FRIDAY SPECIAL at my Candle Shoppe:

Tamara: I haven't been following you for long but I feel like I would like to offer some anti pain advice if I might. I had knee replacement surgery almost 2 years ago. I should point out that my thigh muscle did not respond to PT after surgery and I have a semi detatched thigh muscle that gives me GRIEF. So I am saying I can relate. I found a creme called Australian Dream that (I don't know why it works, I only know it does) relieves muscle pain and spasm. I buy it at Walgreens/Payless pharmacy but I am sure you could find it at a pharmacy near you. I know, strange old lady with cream advice but it works...........honest. Linda in New Mexico

Oh my gosh- I hope your back is better by now! I laughed when you wondered how the heck you hurt your back washing celery sticks. I have thrown out my back putting the laundry basket down- NOT picking it up. And my mom threw hers out picking a throw pillow up off the floor. It's crazy, but back injuries just seem to appear out of nowhere!

Glad everyone pitched in and helped with dinner.

sheesh! cool about the turkey thawing. NOT cool about your shoulder!! :(

Melissa said...

Oh that sucks!!! I am so sorry you hurt yourself like that... but next year you will think it's hilarious, and have a perfect excuse to not wash the celery.

My husband calls me "Gert" sometimes. How coincidental is that?

Sorry about your pain. I am glad though, that no one in your family actually stabbed you on Thanksgiving!
