I did make it to the appointment with my back and spine specialist. Oh what a fun visit! Nothing like wearing a lovely hospital gown with the back open, so you can bend over with your arse in someone's face. Ugh, I could NEVER be a doctor! At least I had on decent undies. I would have died if I had been wearing, um, well, anything too skimpy. Apparently, my hips are not too bad as far as the alignment is concerned. She said there was something up with my lumbar region, but felt it had something to do with my muscles in the area not letting my hip function properly. Gotta love it when the doc is moving your leg all around saying, "Hmmm, that feels weird" and "Wow, this is messed up". I dunno...a lot of it sounded pretty Greek to me. But, I am going to do some physical therapy. I know it's necessary, but seriously, who has time to go to PT 3x per week? Oh yeah, let me fit that in between work, school, working out, making the kiddo's lunch, housework, eating and sleeping. Oh hey, forget the eating and sleeping...who needs that?
Last night, the kiddo and I looked at Halloween costumes on-line. Last week, every time I asked her what she wanted to be for Halloween, she'd exclaim, "A PUMPKIN!" Last night, every time she saw a costume that caught her eye she'd exclaim, "I want to be A PRINCESS!", "I want to be DORA!", "I want to be A CLOWN!", "I want to be PABLO!", "I want to be CINDERELLA!", "I want to be SNOW WHITE!", "I want to be (whatever she just happens to be looking at!)". So now, I have no idea what she wants to be...I should have just gone with the pumpkin. :-)
Finally, here are the pics of the River Oaks Shopping Center demo yesterday....(borrowed from the saveourlandmarks.org website):
