change of plans

Well, this weekend hasn't exactly turned out like I had hoped it would. Yesterday I got up and started moving furniture so I could rent a carpet cleaner and clean up the living room carpet. It's gotten pretty bad. I successfully moved everything into the kitchen with only a minor tweak in my back. I went upstairs to change my clothes to I could go to the store and when I bent down to pick something up I swear I felt a muscle in my back rip. I iced it and took a crapload of advil yesterday and was feeling ok enough that I decided to go ahead with renting the carpet cleaner. I got through that ok but was completely exhausted afterwards. I had promised a friend of mine that I would go to her graduation party so I got ready and went to that. I tripped on a sprinkler head while I was there and that really hurt my back. I stayed as long as I could but had to leave shortly after because I was in pain. I would have loved to stay longer and get to know the husbands of two of my friends. I'll see them again tomorrow though so no worries!
I was able to sleep ok and woke up stiff and sore this morning. I walked down to the farmers market because I couldn't ride my bike. It was nice to get a little exercise. I had hoped to go for a bike ride and to the gym this weekend, but that's not going to happen.
Most of the carpet is dry now so we moved my furniture back so now I can relax on the couch. I think I'll be on it for the rest of the day working on my quilt and watching tv.
Tomorrow I'm meeting a client and going to a bar-b-que so I need to rest up today.
