Sometimes You Are Forced to Relax...

I finished this Turkey hotpad today.  Each pattern in this book says, "Do not use to take hot items out of the oven"...  ??? Okay... ??? (Because of the eyes/fur you have to use in the patterns, I suppose..) Well... I was trying to make a few hotpads/potholders~ Whatever you want to call them~ for the Crafting for a Cause webstore. I already sent some stuff in, but wanted to make a couple/few more hotpads.  There's not many turkey hotpad patterns out there and I think I have about three. I liked this one the best of them all.  My back almost went out today (I should be in bed right now, I have a muscle relaxer waiting for me..) So, I finished this and started a Tulip Stitch dishcloth (with the variegated yarn from the Turkey hotpad). (I figured out what I was doing wrong on the first one I did, btw..)  I ran out of yarn, though. So I didn't want to start anything else.       I was just bending over picking up laundry to put in the washer, when my back went "Crrraauughh".  Okay it didn't make that noise at all. But that's what it felt like. I said "Uh oh". I just walked over to my bed, propped my pillows up; and sat there and crocheted...  I took a bath, hoping that might help.  It doesn't hurt *as* bad as it did earlier, but it still hurts... I think I'll go to bed now..   :/

I think my back actually makes that noise! Well, it's really on my "upper butt/lower back." So, I am sitting here typing with ice down my pants on my "upper butt." I figured that since drugs didn't help it, I'd try to freeze it out!

Paula, that's right where mine hurts. :/ They say ice is good, but I will only use it as a last resort. :P

Thank you Vik! :D
