yes, i do still exist.
first there was packing. then moving. then a little bit of unpacking. Somewhere along the way i managed to severely wrench/sprain my lower back. Now we know where the nearest urgent care clinic is in our neighborhood. and the 24 hour pharmacy. and all the good take-out. the living room has been turned into an invalid ward for me. I've got wireless computer, cable tv, pizza, telephone, books, even some knitting. although i can't mange much of that because it requires sitting. and enough consciousness to follow a pattern. knitting and percocet are not a great match.
right now i'm missing a wedding that i was really looking forward to attending. the real question comes in a few days. On tuesday we are flying to the west coast to start a two week roadtrip from L.A. to seattle. it was supposed to be my last big, fun trip before starting grad school. i really hope i can still do it.
