Test was CANCELLED!! they sent us home. during the 1.5 hours that I was there it must have dumped about 2 inches of snow. nothing for me, being used to huge amounts of snow for ages, but the Scots up here freak out where there is snow. yahoo. course still have to take it, but I did a bit of studying last night even though I could not focus and did not want to study. More of it stuck than I thought, because on the drive to school I was repeating all the things out loud to myself while driving and I had not looked at it since last night. so more got into the cracks than I thought. should be able to get it all sorted so that I know it perfect and that way I won’t have to do any remediation. going to suggest that we do the test that was supposed to be next week maybe on the Thursday of that week. otherwise we will end up doing it the last day of class and if there is any remediation to do, don’t know how that will be accomplished. got last weeks big test back. had a few bits wrong, in fact found some bits that were wrong that she missed and I marked them wrong and then corrected them when I did the rest of my remediation. so that test is all sorted. turned in my five reports and all the bits. told her to assess me on the last two things with my client. so if she is happy with my reports, it is done. Except the two tests that have been postponed in anatomy and the last couple of treatments for my last three clients. those will be finished soon. only have 7 more treatments to do over the next 2.5 weeks. so all totaled if they agree to do the test in her other class on that Thursday that I am thinking I could finished finito by 20th and won’t even have to go to class on the 24th of feb. yahoo and double yahoo. Woke up in intense pain in my back today. it is wrapping around and making it difficult to breath. I think since I had a bit of ibuprofen last night when I went to bed that I must have slept and not moved all night and my back didn’t like that. everything is starting to seize up, even my calf in my leg is cramping and I am limping. geesh need to just put me in a body bag now. had a friend/neighbor who is a nurse come over and realign my back. she isn’t trained how to do it but I told her and she did it and the vertebrae all clicked and moved. pain instantly gone. she was freaked because she could hear and feel them move, but it didn’t hurt. wow do I feel better. I am really interested to see what my back will be like once I have more weight off. none of my back pain is because of my weight, but I wonder how much pain will be relieved. hopefully enough for me to live the rest of my life, and not be in the pain that I live with everyday. course if I manage to not have any more car accidents, tumbles down stairs, falls in the yard, or other things that my accident prone self seems to be plagued with I sure that will help immensely. I have fallen off stairs, stools, chairs, had numerous car accidents in my younger days, been thrown from a horse when I was little, and the biggy…fell out of a tree and landed on my bum directly onto a big rock…oh forgot when I was hiking in the mountains in Peru I fell down a landslide and just managed to stop and later that same day fell down a bunch of these ancient steps that have been carved into the mountainside..I did manage to stop after bouncing down the steps with a metal framed back pack on my back just inches before going over the cliff. I stopped because I ran into another rock. you see it is not the driving, walking, climbing, hiking or the biking that I have problems with….it is all the stopping bits when I hit the rock, wall, granite, other cars, ground..ect that gets me. my dad always says that he doesn’t like to be around me for long periods of time, bad things happen around me. I don’t know what he is talking about. and yes, I want to be skinnier again so that I can be more fit and get back to all that. I want to redo the hike in Peru through the mountains. found a wonderful company here that does ONLY Peruvian tours and we can go and do the trip again. well AGAIN for me first time for husband. and I want to hike the Grand Canyon, Yosemite park, yellow stone park and hike in Mammoth Caves again. I have done them twice but husband had not ever. so many things to climb so little time. ahah I want to go white water rafting. same friend/neighbor that helped me out with my back this year is going white water rafting this summer with her hubby. she said that they had a devil of a time getting insurance because the rapids are 4 and 5’s. well 5 is considered extreme sport..so she got extreme sport insurance. cool. now is that posh or what. did any of you see XXX. besides the fact that Vin Disel is so yummy, I just loved the extreme sports. yeah baby!!! I want to do that all again. and some of it for the first time. It is just my body that doesn’t cooperate, it can’t keep up with me. I am a bit hyper today. yesterday had wheat. well as you saw I was so scattered and unfocused, melancholy and feeling off and sick. just wanted to listen to my heavy metal cds with all my candles burning and sit with my eyes closed rather than study. so I compromised, I turned the music down a bit, but did the rest. so back to the no wheat again. haven’t’ had any today. but did have a choc bar. so a bit hyper right now. would go do my salsa dvds, but yeah..did I forget to tell you? I still have NO dvd. small wonder huh? I think it must be a figment of my imagination. but I do have the receipt to prove that not only did I order it but that I paid for it. they promised today..after 4pm..we will see. it is 3:15pm. time is a ticking. have glorious plans tonight. going to light a fire in the fireplace AND leave the central heating on full blast. bloody cold here today. snuggle down to watch one of my fav shows and tape it for my hubby. light about half a dozen candles and snuggle with all three border collies on my futon with my two fleece blankies. yeah….I am ready after all the stress of those reports this week. going to veg and I am just loving the thought of it. see you later, dazzle Ps..do you guys like all my rambling on about things and all the emotions? I am good at telling stories but didn’t know if you guys like it or are tired of it already. ahahah
