Yesterday I was carrying my 13 year old 40 pound dog up the stairs and decided to not only carry him but grab the knapsack that was sitting on the stairs at the same time. Whatever movement I made twisted my back and I was rendered helpless for 15 minutes with my dog half on one stair half on another looking at me like what kind of game is this? It is amazing how you take things for granted until you no longer have them. I was unable to do anything all day. It reminded me that we take all kinds of things for granted all the time. So to make myself feel better I decided this was just a way to get me to slow down and pay attention to life's lesson's.
On another note, my constant challenge of not shopping but rather wearing all of the clothes I already have, led me to this brown shrug. Found it way in the back of my closet and hate to admit it but it still had the price tag on it.
