Back, Back, Back!

This will be short...evidently I have a pinched sciatic nerve and that's the reason for the pain in the butt! Thanks to pharmaceuticals, I should be back to normal in less than a week. And I won't need to take any time off work.

Today started out with lovely temperatures in the high 50's. By noon, it was down to 27°. At 2 when I left for my doctor appointment, it was snowing and the wind was gusting at about 40 mph. They say that if you don't like the weather here in Missouri, just wait a while cause it will change. I believe that this week! Tomorrow it will be around 40° and Thursday we are expecting a significant snowfall. (Probably only a couple of inches).

Am off to lay down on my side with a pillow between my knees and a flannel quilt over me. Probably end up with a cat somewhere in the mix as well! Gilligan just loves laying wherever I am!

Oooohhh...I sympathize! I've had sciatica before--so unsettling. I hope you're better now.

Mom -I never like to leave posts on people's blogs that are "Well, look at me posts." However, I read your post about snow coming and I couldn't resist. Monday, 8 inches on the valley floor, tonight, 6 inches and still falling, and yes, I drove home in it tonight.
