Books Are Dangerous!

Last week I mentioned my mission to remove 7000 from my house and I thought now would be a good time to update you on my progress.

The week started well and I managed to donate 5 boxes of fiction to my son’s scout group for their upcoming jumble sale. I then sorted and catalogued 4 boxes for sale on eBay, then I bent down to pick up a box lid and …

I slipped a disc in my back!

I am now barely able to lift a single book and am virtually house bound. Unfortunately the pain/pain killers are making me feel so sleepy/spaced out that I can’t concentrate enough to read. Hopefully this will change over the next few days, but I think all my elaborate book sorting plans are over.

I’m off to lie down with some trashy TV.

Oh, how awful, Jackie. I hope you’ll feel better soon. I’ve had a slipped disc before so I know how awful it is. It doesn’t even take much: I wanted to pick up a jam pot from the breakfast table when I was clearing the table and boom! It’s a long time ago but not easy to forget.

Take it easy and hopefully you can read a bit after a few days. Doing nothing is so boring!

Oh no! My father slipped a disc in his back several years ago, so I know how debilitating it can be. I really hope you get better soon!

Awful Jackie!!! Being bed ridden is such a boring thing.. especially if you are used to being very active. Hope you get better sooner than later. Backs take an awful long time unfortunately.
