The snow day worked out well! Everything that hurt still hurts, but a little bit less, I didn't need as much ibuprofen, I was able to walk without the cane on occasion, and I didn't have to go out at all. Considering how much ice is sure to be about tomorrow, I'm not chancing it, and I'll be home again then. Got my work done just fine, had the Weather Channel on during the storm whilst I worked, even had Zed be a lap cat for awhile sitting on the heating pad I'd positioned on my lap after I'd used it on my back. So, a success. And to cautiously celebrate, here are some coins carved to reveal skulls underneath (via BoingBoing).
