It seems I freaked people out a little on Friday with a blog called “I have no core strength”. They took it as a cry for help. And it was … for my abs.
My sacrum has been playing up again following my double-handed baby chook splits injury (aggrevated by my bush turkey gardening injury), and the physio explained to me – as nicely as possible – that it would help if I built up my core strength, ie didn’t slouch around with my gut hanging out.
When I said:
I am trying to zip up my core.
And keep it zipped.
All. The. Time.
It’s so bloody hard.
Does it get any easier?
This is not a metaphor.
I meant it.
Yes, the past six months have had their freaking awful moments, but I’m not wobbly … right now … except in the spare tyre region.
But it’s lovely to know you care about my core, both muscular and metaphysical.
In other HouseGoesHome news …
I wondered if this was Our Last Santa Visit.
I yelled a lot at a stranger and blogged about it in a post called Going Postal.
And I bitched about the hell of your kids being on holidays when you’re not in What holiday???
