My sleep was interrupted last night by an awful spasm of pain going through my lower right back. That set of muscles was feeling weak throughout the previous day, so I was trying to stretch them a bit. Guess I didn't do enough. Or maybe too much? God, I'd not felt one of these in years.

I'd love nothing more than to stay home and lie in bed with a hot towel around me. That's not in the cards today, though, so I'll trudge on in with my buckweat pillow, my aleve and calendula rub. Will move very slowly so as not to disturb the still shaky-twitchy muscles and possibly knock the wind out of me. Will try not to grimace too much, as that draws questions.
