My weekend at home was fabulous. How was yours? The weather here in Pittsburgh was overcast but warm. It was the first weekend that was nice enough eat outside.
Care to join me for dinner at dusk?
Well, I never said that I was a good cook. On the menu: Ice and Ibuprofen. Yummy!
As I mentioned in The Alien Ass, it’s been a while since I’ve worked out. When you have a mid-life body (like me), take 6-weeks off from exercise (like me), and then overdo it on the first nice weekend of the year (again, like stupid me)…Ice and Ibuprofen become a necessary part of the diet.
I know all about pain. Sometimes it is laughable, like when a little kid shown on America’s Funniest Home Videos swings a golf club into his dad’s privates. Other times, it’s not so funny…especially when it happens to you. About 6 years ago a disk exploded in my lower back. The pain was so intense that I made a secret deal with God to make it go away. Turns out, God needed the help of a neurologist and a surgical team. For the rest of my life, I won’t wear high heals…I won’t play impactful sports…and I’ll always keep Ice and Ibuprofen on hand.
So, did you decide if you’ll join me for dinner on the patio? I promise to be nice and add in some chocolate brownies for dessert…
I made them myself; and yes, they are as moist as they look. All the food blogs post their recipes, so I’ll do the same. To make these at home:
- Go to the store;
- Buy a package of Hershey’s Ultimate Chocolate Brownie mix; and
- Follow the instructions on the box.
The recipe is quick, easy, and…totally painless.
Do you have any aches and pains? Have they gotten worse, or better, as you’ve aged?
The Coco Chanel Book giveaway ends tonight at 9PM, so there’s still time to enter. Remember to check back tomorrow…you might be the winner!
