Six Word Saturday:


Christmas dinner: Mushroom Soup and Up


Yesterday evening was the big event: the Harley Christmas Dinner. Each year the organization devotes a lot of time and effort to this event. And the food… mmm. Needless to say we were looking forward to it. Even my brand new dress was eager.

But my body decided otherwise. The glands in my neck were playing ball, my throat was on fire and muscles changed miraculously into jelly. And my back, oh my back and abdomen. Standing up straight was impossible.

While Vman was painting the corridor wall English red – first my bedroom, now the hallway… my whole house will end up red 😉 – I hobbled upstairs and crawled straight into bed, where I stayed the next couple of hours. Tossing was no option, turning was, very slowly with my teeth firmly locked against the pain and the shivering.

The time of our departure was getting near, but when I got up, I had to admit it was impossible for me to attend the Christmas dinner. I waved goodbye to Vman – who was ordered to join the fun and eat for two – and lay down under the blanket on the couch again. What to do. Ah yes, sleep!

Around seven it was time for Christmas Dinner. And I joined my friends – at a distance – with a cup of mushroom soup. And bread sticks! As long as I didn’t move, the pain was bearable so a movie would be nice. Up! was on,

By tying thousands of balloon to his home, 78-year-old Carl Fredricksen sets out to fulfill his lifelong dream to see the wilds of South America. Right after lifting off, however, he learns he isn’t alone on his journey, since Russell, a wilderness explorer 70 years his junior, has inadvertently become a stowaway on the trip.

But even this great animation couldn’t dull the thrumming in my back. So I went up at 9 pm. To bed. And got up again and again during the night.

What’s up oh body mine? Behave, will ya?!

  1. The past two Christmas’ my back was knotted up beyond belief…I think I just over did it and ended up, down in the back…It sounds like more than your back…praying you are on the mend and will be fully recovered by Christmas Eve!


    1. Oh Jeanne, I’m so sorry to hear that. Will you take it easy this Christmas?! Please?
      The glands in my neck are still tangible, but less. And today is better than yesterday – walking (in the house) is more normal, and as long as I don’t bend forward, pretty pain free too – so I am on the mend. Thanks for your prayers, they work! *hugs*


  2. Oh my dear, so sorry that you missed the Harley benefit and Christmas party and also I hope that by the time you read this you are feeling much more yourself!! (((warm soft hugs)))

    Much love,


    1. Thanks Jules *hugs*. It was simply the best thing to do, or I would have messed up the Harley Party and myself.
      My back is slowly bowing into submission again *pets it* so things are looking UP again 😉
      Miss you!


    1. Getting there Tilly! Found a heat pillow which is comfortably warming my back muscles. Seems I have any, or else they wouldn’t hurt this much 😉 Going back to work on Wednesday, took today and tomorrow off. As was the original plan anyway.
