I aINT no Speedy Gonzales Today!

It was a dark and cloudy night in Alberta,
when suddenly between the old adobe haciendas
came the cry of a middle age housewife
La La laa la lala la la la laaaa,
Oh me aching back,
the other day went crack,
I have been sitting with the heating pad,
I can't get out of bed no more,
I am staring at the ceiling,
I can't get my feet to touch the floooooor
for some reason I have that song
Speedy Gonzales running around in my head,
purchance too much pain medication.
I believe I will be going to emergency today.
Once I am in a sitting position I am ok for a little while,
but getting out of bed is very very hard,
I am not sure what they will be able to do for me,
I have not ever hurt it this bad...
How do you ask?
Opening the fridge door and picking up a container of French Vanilla Yogurt.
What the heck.
So if I am not around for a few days you will know why.
I will be back as soon as I can,
when I am not a hurting unit.


  1. Oh dear my sweet friend! I hope they can give you copious amounts of pain meds so you can move. So sorry!!! Be well soon!
    Hugs (gentle ones)

  2. ack. hope they can help you out and hope you feel better cinner....

  3. Oh no! That sounds like you are hurting horribly. I am so sorry for your pain. Our backs can tweek with such little things. One time when I only had two kids I bent down to a bottom drawer for something and when I stood up my head was on my shoulder and would not straighten up. Hope you are able to get to the emergency room and they get your back straightened with a minimum of pain.

  4. lots of healing mojo is being sent you way.....

  5. Oh my....I hope its nothing serious. My mother got down in her back and it turned out to be an infection on her spine...very bad and required surgery for removal. So do not wait to long before going to the doctor! Im sending the healing angels to you for a speedy recovery my friend!

  6. Cindy...I'm so sorry to hear about this....and I am thinking of you right now.

  21. Hi beautiful Cinner... I am so sorry to read of your pain and I sincerely hope that it goes well away very soon.

    Your blog is looking fantastic. Well done.

    I was looking for an email address to reply to your question as to how I did the heart in my header, but I can't find one here. Maybe I'm not looking in the right places... Anyway... here's what I did -
    I got a piece of card and cut out a heart shape and then placed a decaying leaf behind the shape... scanned it and then transformed it into black and white.

    xx hope that makes sense. :)

    take care
