Nice [Feb. 9th, 2016|09:54 pm]
It was head-yanking day with the chiropractor today, and my head is still attached to my body! (I wonder what Tchaikovsky would have made of chiropractic adjustments? At one point in his life he developed a phobia in which he envisioned his head falling off and rolling up the aisle of the concert hall while he was conducting. An adjustment probably would have scared him to death.) Anyway, I'm all in one piece and will probably sleep better tonight then I have lately, as I've been finding it very difficult to get a comfortable position for my head because I keep getting pains in my neck when I turn it.

The weather is still mild, and I've been hearing many flocks of geese heading north. They should really reconsider, as a false spring here is frequently followed by some pretty chilly days, and sometimes even snow. I'd really like to see some snow before this winter ends. There was a thin coat of it a couple of weeks ago but I slept through it and then the rain returned and it washed away before I woke. I only found out about it through hearsay, which means it wouldn't have been admissible in a court of law. For all I got out of it, it might as well not have happened.

The truncated Safeway ad arrived in the mail today, and there will be cheap kitty litter at their Friday-only sale, so I'm really hoping I can arrange to go shopping that day. I won't know everything that's on sale this week until the new Internet ad appears on their web site tomorrow morning. As much as I hate shopping I do enjoy looking at the ads and making a list. That, and getting really good bargains, are the only things that compensate for the act of shopping itself.

Funny, there was all sorts of stuff I thought of writing while my Internets connection was down, but now that it's back I can't remember a single bit of it. I guess I'll go outside and listen to the frogs croak for a while. It's very nice out.

I forget whether I've ever asked if you use one of those cushiony cervical pillows to support your neck. I've used them, and it sure helps when the arthritis kicks in.

Hope the geese don't get their webbed feet frozen in a sudden cold snap!

I've got about three pillows which I can arrange in various ways, but none of them are cervical. I generally don't have a problem while lying down, but while lifting my head up or letting it down. It's the weight of my head that puts a strain on my neck when it's angled or horizontal. That's what I get for having such an enormous brain (or perhaps so much heavy fat inside my skull.)

The main problem I have while lying down is that whichever shoulder I'm lying on (I can't sleep while lying on my back at all) gets sore after a while.
