Still off the bike

I'm just wasting time before leaving for church for praise team practice. I really like going t the practices, but I'm not sure I'll ever play in church. It will probably happen eventually, but I'm in no rush.

I've been off of the bike for 2.5 weeks now. My back still hurts but less so than last week. I'm hopeful that in the next week I'll be feeling back to normal. It's crazy how long it has taken for this to get better. I might try doing some short intervals on the trainer starting tonight or tomorrow, but we'll just have to see.

Well, now it is time to go.

My phone call with Comcast

Me: Hi Comcast, I'm thinking of upgrading my cable
Them: Great, but you owe us hundreds of dollars in back fees.
Me: WHAT!!!!! I have my last bill right here. It says I use the autopay option. This makes no sense
Them: you are correct sir, but the bank must have denied the drafts
Me: it's a credit card number.
Them: well you must have changed credit cards without knowing
Me: !?!? How come this is not reflected in my bill?
Them: We are not sure sir, but you owe us money immediately otherwise we will have to disconnect your service.
Me: Time to talk to a manager


2 hours later that is sorted out. Late fees removed.


Them: So are you ready to upgrade you cable package now
Me: Can't say that I am. I have to go.

Liz and I went to take the garden down this morning. To our great surprise we had tons of watermelon waiting to be picked. We picked the three largest ones and let nature have the rest. There were also a ton of green peppers on the plants. I honestly didn't think there would be anything green in the garden following the drought we've been having. Liz wondered if the warm weather we've been having spurred a bumper crop.

While we were pulling out stakes, I must have twisted weird because all of a sudden there was a large amount of pain coming from my back. I tried to keep working on the little stuff, but the spasms kind of kept coming, so Liz decided we needed to go home. In hindsight, I think she was right.

So now I'm sitting on the couch blogging. Liz basically makes me promise not to move whenever she can't see me. It's not really painful just a bit uncomfortable.
