Anyway, after another round of muscle relaxers plus serious pain meds, the pinched nerve is not pinching quite as painfully. It lets me know it's still there periodically, but I'm getting back to normal. Slowly.
And back to normal for me means that I finally picked up a needle yesterday.
I am stitching the replacement for the panel of Tsubaki that I lost earlier this year. It is not as much fun as it was the first time. But if I'm careful and work consistently, I could potentially finish this project before my July 4 stay-cation.
You'd think after working from my living room for weeks on end, I would want to escape. However, all the work stuff will be packed away and things will be back to normal-ish before noon on June 26, when I am free of work obligations for 9 1/2 days!
