Hi, my name is Flo

and I am a freaking idiot. Sometimes I really amaze myself. Sometimes I wonder how I make it through the day I can be such an idiot.

So here's the story. For months my back has been bothering me. For a while it was really bad, but working out and yoga has helped a lot. This week I've been off. Every morning I would wake up and my back would feel great. I would sit at my computer and within 1/2 hour my back would be sore. It would then bother me the rest of the day.

Well, it only took me 3 days to realize it was my office chair. Doh!!!! What a freaking idiot. So I tell hubby I need a new chair and since we had a Sam's Club trip scheduled that was added to the list.

We went to Sam's and I got my new chair, among other things. I bought it home and got it assembled and what a difference it makes. I looked closely at mine and the back was all wobbly and falling backwards (it couldn't be adjusted anymore). Also, my old chair only had a small back pad. This new chair has a back pad that goes from the seat to the upper back. There is good lumbar support and the back doesn't move. The entire seat can tilt backwards but the back stays firm. I love my new chair.

I believe you're all supposed to say 'Hi Flo' now :)

Believe it or not, I've had the same problem at work, where I had the piriformis problem, and my chair actually aggravated it to the point that I finally asked for another one and what a difference it made! Then, after my accident last year, I again had difficulty with my chair, so I searched around the office for another one and once again, the problem was gone. Glad you figured it out! It was never going to clear up without making that change.

And now it's Sunday

 We have one more week and then spring break. The break will be nice.  Yesterday we went to the Oddities & Curiosities Expo. It looked i...
