Last Friday Lee looked at the weather channel webpage and saw that snow and sleet was about to rear its ugly head in south-central Arkansas (that’s where we are).
For her, that meant a short solo hike yesterday in search of exotic birds that seem to land and stay awhile whenever we have one of these storms (and she got a beauty of a closeup video of cedar waxwings). If you’ve not seen it, please do yourself a favor. http://hikeourplanet.com.
For me, it meant changing my physical therapy appointment (for arm and back injury) from Monday to another day, which I did (on Friday).
So yesterday I got a call from the physical therapy office. The voice on my voicemail said, “We’re going to have to postpone your appointment due to weather conditions”.
I thought to myself, “I wish when I worked in corporate America we could have had such a laissez–faire attitude towards our work (in other words, not do it but get paid). Alas those were the days of responsibility and duty. Today are the days of “I’ll get to it when/if I can”.
So I called back in a huff letting them know I’d already called on Friday, aware of the upcoming bad weather, and already changed my appointment which obviously was not recorded. I’ve not heard back.
So what is my point? Well my injury, and rest-assured, I don’t do things half-baked….this is a full-blown killer pain starting at my fingers and moving its way back and forth to my upper and lower back. I’ve had some interesting injuries in the past, but this one by far is the worse.
So again, what’s my point? I wondered how in the hell I’d be able to type a blog…..and there ya have it…..a blog!
By the way, Lee is helping me with my exercises, and I go to physical therapy tomorrow…that is if they remembered to post the appointment.
