I’m into day 2 of excruciating upper back pain. Doc seems to thing it’s "just a spasm." But I can’t turn my head to either side or get up from a sitting position without a yelp. IT SUCKS! I’m miserable and it’s really thrown me for a loop.
I’m pretty much couch bound with my heating pad and I’ve been on the computer the whole time but I am completely unmotivated to actually get work done. I’m hoping by writing this it snaps me out of the slump. I can’t believe I missed the question of the week AND Thursday Thoughts!
OK… That’s it… It’s time to make some Lemonade. I’m tired of feeling sorry for myself. You know what will cheer me up?
Giving away $100 Bucks!! It’s time to pick the winner of the Living Greener and Healthier giveaway that was sponsored by SunChips

Congrats Allison!! So.. what are you going to do with the 100 bucks!?!? Curious minds want to know!
See… now I already have a smile on my face. :~)
Let’s see. What else would me me Happy? Oh yeah!
Did you see my joke about Oprah? I’m not kidding, I got a call from one of her producers. I almost crashed the car when I answered my cell. Apparently Oprah is considering doing a story about WeightView, the site where you upload a picture and they show you what you look like at a lower weight. I posted about their site last year in the Question of the Week Post: Do You Visualize Your Weight Loss?
Oprah’s producers saw that I contribute to their site (I recently posted about spring time recipes) and that I lost weight. They wanted to know if I used the service. Since I didn’t (already lost the weight before I knew about them) they didn’t seem that interested in me at all. Oh well, as my friend said "At least you are in a Oprah’s filing cabinet somewhere."
That made me smile. :~)
You know what else made me giggle? This…
Here’s the story. I received an email from Helen asking if I was in a new commercial for Yahoo. So I did a search and immediately found this…
I knew it had to be the one she was talking about. After I posted on twitter to get opinions (if the actress looked like me) Marc (@babymakes7) made the side by side shots. This totally cracked me up.
And made me smile. :~)
See.. that really helped. Sometimes just talking a moment and thinking about things that make you smile can give you just what you need to ward off a funk. So as I sit here with my heading pad and the massager my friend just dropped off, I’m feeling a bit more motivated. I think I’ll go work on the cookbook. :~)
