One Solution

Since injuring my back, I have been using a lumbar roll when driving. I got this Tempurpedic one below. This $50 Tempurpedic one.

I feel like it does help. It forces me to sit up and puts that arch in my back. Did I mention that it cost $50? My kids call it my "peanut" because of the shape.

I like to leave it in the car so that I don't forget it when I go out. But recently we've been hit with some extreme cold temperatures here in the Pacific northwest. It was 30 degrees when I woke up this morning! And the grass was covered in frost. I just wanted to put that out there for all of you who are enjoying the negative degree temps through out the rest of the country. I'm not bragging, just rubbing it in a little mentioning it. (Please keep in mind that if you live in Miami, Hawaii or Southern California, your comments may be accidentally deleted. It is my blog after all.)

My pillow was frozen when I got in the car this morning. It was more like a rock than a pillow! Maybe I should bring it in the house overnight. For a while I would bring the pillow in the house with me each time I came home. Then my kids started using my pillow as a very expensive indoor football.

I believe the term "indoor football" is an oxymoron. Not only did I enjoy watching my pillow be tossed around and barely miss knocking over the TV or landing on the stove while I was cooking dinner, I also never could find it when I was ready to go somewhere. So I went back to leaving it in the car.

This morning it was frozen solid.

I have a solution. I will be moving to Aruba next week.

Oh can I go with you? What is it stuffed with? Like a firm foam or something? Well ttyl, I have to go pack!

Will you delete this comment if I am JUST VISITING Hawaii?
It got up to a balmy 30 above today but it was -13 this morning. It is colder than usual but I still hate it.
A $50 indoor football? not good
I hope your back gets to feeling better very soon, I know all about back trouble but my new mattress is much better on it.

30? Did you say 30? That's downright tropical :) Our high today was 10 or something equally ridiculous.

That does look like a peanut. I can see why your sons couldn't help giving it a workout!

If moving to Aruba is my only hope for my sore back? I'm toast.
