l4r - I have a hand-held device I got at CVS that has radiant heat and/or massage (3 options). It has been my life saver many times. Short of that, midol and heating pad until you see a doctor/chiropractor.
MRD - I'm dying here! What is part 2?
My 4-day weekend is going great. I find I can't sustain 2 days of heavy cleaning back-to-back because of my allergies, so Friday I read my Kindle all day (true day off), yesterday I tackled the barn, washed the dog, washed the car. Today is my social day - I'm going to Amherst for a Trader Joe's run and taking my son out for brunch, then I meet with my discussion group (6 women, monthly meeting). I started the day grading tests, so got that out of the way. Tomorrow I want to get as much done in the barn as I possibly can. I started out the weekend dreading the job, now I'm psyched about the possibility of finishing it.
