Just my luck...

This morning I get to work and I have to cover another secretary's position. No big deal- at least I still get paid. I got up to go on my break, went over to MY desk, and noticed that someone opened the window that is supposed to always be closed due to patient confidentiality. I tried to close the window but it was stuck. The damn window had come off its track, which it does on occasion. I went to lift it back on track and I felt my upper back muscle tear. HOLY SHIT it hurt! I went to the Employee Health Office and laid on a stretcher for an hour with ice and meds. I am so paranoid to begin with because I had lower back surgery in 2002, the last thing I need is another back problem. Needless to say, I went home at noon today. I couldn't take the pain! So I've been sitting here now, for 10 hours, doing nothing. I mean NOTHING. Actually, the past hour I did work on my 2nd Magic Stripe sock. Yes, you read that right, my SECOND one! I'm now almost done with the heel, and headed for the toe. Yay! I can only knit a little at a time because my shoulder blades are not thrilled I'm moving them at all. I am unsure if I'm going to work in the morning or not. I want to go see my MD or my surgeon, but I don't have the money to right now. We'll see what the morning brings. I'm off to sleep. Goodnight.

That sounds awful! I really hope you didn't do any major damage.

In a totally unrelated issue... GO YOU ON YOUR SECOND SOCK!!! WOOHOO!!!

I'm so excited about my sock I can't stand it! After this pair, I have a NEW sock yarn to try... yum yum!
