As I mentioned earlier, I've been incredibly wiped out lately.  I've been busy with work, and just exhausted most of the time.  Last night I had planned to lay out a lovely feast for the living and the dead, but that didn't happen.  I ended up making a loaf of pumpkin bread instead, and offering some of that to my ancestors.  I also sat out some dog and cat food, and apples for my guinea pigs.  A little black kitty from the neighborhood stopped by to eat the cat food.  I think that's a good sign, personally :)

This morning, on my way down the stairs to work, I hit a step just the right way with my foot and PAIN shot up my spine and I went down.  I had to crawl back up the steps and lie on the floor for a while.  While on the floor, I sent desperate text messages to the coordinators at work to let them know I wouldn't be able to make it in today, and to please inform my students.  I managed to claw my way onto this chair and send some e-mails and here I sit, hunched over the dining room table like Quasi-freakin-modo,  the muscles in my back screaming at me.    I hope this doesn't look bad at work.  It's not my fault there aren't enough people to cover classes when someone is out.  Fortunately, today was going to be a review day, and I can answer questions and do work from home.  For now, though, back to the floor I go.  Ouch.

Hope you all had a happy holiday.

Here is our humble outside altar:

And our pumpkins:

I'm so sorry to hear that you're in such pain! =(

I'm really glad, though, that you weren't more seriously hurt in your fall down the stairs. I am sending you some healing energy. And hugs. Always hugs. ^-^

I hope that you're back on your feet soon & that you are able to get good rest & feel refreshed & full of energy! I hate feeling drained like that. It's awful. Bleh!

Thank you so much for the well wishes for Vash. He is indeed feeling much better & back to his usual self... getting into things, wrestling with Lhu, the usual. ^-^

And he especially like the extra chin scritches. ^-^ I told him they were from you.

Take good care of yourself & feel better soon. Don't hesitate to holler if you need something a fellow Witch can help with! =D
