I took this picture this morning after I finished shoveling snow. Yesterday I shoveled everything in the park but it was only an inch or so. Today is a little different. I shoved the Point sidewalks while Crystal shoveled the visitor center. She is sick and my back has been killing me, so we moved pretty slow. I am tired of the snow (I looked forward to THIS in November...) but last night I found a great use for it--filling plastic bags for ice packs. My back hurt and I stayed at the park--I forgot any kind of pain killer except magnesium/calcium pills that relax my muscles but make me sleepy too. I used the ice pack for a while then got in a hot bath, then iced it again and I slept great! Yesterday I used some sick leave because the night before I only got a few hours of sleep. The chiropractor keeps saying I'm fixed but I'm really not. Tried a massage, and tomorrow I am going to another homeopathic-type doctor before I go to a real doctor. It will be $60, but after all the money I spent on chiropractor and massage....it may be worth it.
I am excited to go to Phoenix...not the long drive but the warmer weather. I heard there may already be wildflowers blooming so I'm taking my camera and computer, and camera charger. When I went to Washington I forgot the charger so I ended up with many less pictures that I would have otherwise. Maybe I'll have to go back......we'll see!
Today may not be a productive day at work. I want to go out and clean before tonight (I'm afraid of the road after it gets dark...ice and black cows, not a great combo) so I'll do that, maybe vacuum and clean the windows and stock a little. I've been reading some of the books on our shelves so I can help people buy them....and I'm becomming a fan of Craig Childs.
