Lest ya'll think I've disappeared off the face of the earth, I thought I ought to post an update. I have been (mostly) keeping up with my flist, but haven't been doing much commenting.

Mostly it's been my back that's kept me away. See, for a while it was a lot better, so I was busy catching up with all the stuff I hadn't been able to do while I was laid up. But then a couple weeks ago it got worse again for no reason I can figure out. So between that and catching a cold, I've been spending a lot of time lying on my back rather than sitting at the computer. And when I haven't been lying down I've been madly knitting, trying to finish my knee socks in time to wear them at Comic-con. I've got sock one completed and I'm just about to start the heel flap on sock two, so I think I might make it.

Speaking of Comic-con, only six days until we leave! SQUEE! We're arriving in San Diego on Tuesday evening so we can spend all day Wednesday at the zoo with the munchkin for her birthday. Tonight I'm going to start on my famous Comic-con spreadsheet because it's important to prioritize and organize the fun. I promise to post recaps and pics here for everyone just like I did last year.

Oh, and for those who remember my dad's trip to the E.R. a few weeks ago, he seems to be fine now. We're thinking the pain was caused by an intramuscular bruise.

Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go work on my Comic-con spreadsheet.

I'm so jealous -- not of the back or cold but Comic-con! I hope you have a grand time. And the Diego Zoo is great, too.

Aww, I'm so sorry your back is being difficult and keeping you from things.

Hugs! I'm so sorry your back has been bothering you. Just remember move around even more than you lay down. That will help, surprisingly enough. :) Call me if you have any questions!

Oh, and I have this book given to me from my physical therapist. I highly recommend it or at least research the MacKenzie Method online: http://optp.com/index.cfm/pageid/203. It really works amazingly well. Hugs!

Also, http://spreadsheets.google.com. Share your spreadsheet!

My god, my post was a walking advertisement. Sowwy. :)

*sending hugs and kisses* I'm sorry your back still hurts, darling. I hope you're feeling better in SIX DAYS FOR COMIC CON! WOOT!

I so hope your back is feeling better by next week! Can't wait to you see you all.

As for spreadsheets, I looked at Thursday and there are only three 1/2 things that I'm really interested in which sadly I don't feel deserve a spreadsheet. As for the rest I might just try out some new stuff and see if I happen upon any gems.

["Girls With Low Self-Esteem" video series voice]Show us your spreadsheets!![/"GWLS-E"vsv]

The schedule is so frustrating--I've got two "must-sees" on Thursday and then...a bunch of cool green slots, but Saturday is choked with desperate reds and oranges. Thanks, Comic-Con.

Although I have to admit that one of the most interesting panels I sat through last year was the one on the DVD release of He-Man and the Masters of the Universe which I was sitting in only to get a good seat for the Boondocks panel that was in the room next. So I've taken a vow to try some new things this year on purpose; maybe Thursday is the best day for that. Can't wait to see y'all!!!

Oof, I'm so sorry about your back. I'd be happy to piggyback you around the San Diego Convention Center if necessary. I'm very happy to hear about your dad, though--hope the medical news for both you and him continues to improve!

I. Can't. Wait. To see your Comic-Con spreadsheet. Or your socks. I, too, have been madly knitting for Comic Con, and...I'm not going to get everything done. A guilty donkey am I, so I hope Certain Folks Attending will forgive me. I'm still going to try, but...hey, look at those cool kneesocks! :runs away with unfinished knitting:
