I'm sure a lot of people who read about this (not you, flist, y'all are smarter than that) are going to immediately assume that this is a steroids thing, which apparently it isn't. And? I have no idea why, but I believe the guy. For one thing, he's never had a positive drug screen, and he takes a lot of them on purpose. And also because I'm probably liek, the only one left in Red Sox Nation who still has a soft spot for Manny. *sigh*
In other news, I went to the chiropractor on Tuesday and he did an adjustment and now my back, etc. feels somewhat better (translation: pain level lower than an eight for longer periods of time). I'm feeling well enough to do some housework today, which I need to do before songdog arrives.
Cleaning without running water is a challenge, but definitely doable (in case I didn't mention it, I lost running water a while back due to burst pipes, and can't afford to get it fixed yet). It's interesting, but I'm learning a LOT about water conservation and how much I was using, and how it's really not so bad having to work around it. I still manage to stay clean/fed/dressed in clean clothes. Schlepping water is pain, but at least I'm schlepping fresh, clear stuff and I don't have to walk ten miles to do it, which means I'm much better off than most people in the world.
P.S. I know I've missed a lot of my flist's posts lately; it's because I've been working/visiting family/having owies. If there's anything that I simply have to see or answer or know about, please tell me? I should be back to more thorough reading soon. :)
