I can't watch the video. Not because I can't open it, but because it has a spider in it


Have a good first day back, Fi.

Living with pain is a witch. That would be a great relief.

Thanks, I think I've kept myself in good condition for getting back to work. But, I know I've been sleeping in too much.

The sciatic pain might have gone away because you were not going to work, sitting in that chair, but I do hope it doesn't come back.

Where I worked, we had a bunch of very old, broken down chairs. Finally, they bought all new chairs. They were beautiful, and very expensive. But unfortunately, they did not get any input from the people who actually had to sit in those chairs. They were very cushy and adjustable, but the arms on them prevented you from getting in close enough to the workstations unless you were 6'5" and had very long arms. You had to lean forward a bit to be able to work. Also, they were twice a big as the old chairs and since our work stations were positioned in sets of three, it was almost impossible to get in or out of your chair without disturbing the other 2 people.

^5 to management!

My sciatic pain was all the time except when I was sitting in the chair. I even have the sofa cushion pitched forward to sit and relax.

Thanks RJD, just 4 hours a day to start. I also have to get my workstation rebuilt...it's all on boxes since the remodeled the office. They gave us built in desks and cupboards.

I just dropped a whole cup of coffee and didn't break the mug...it's amazing how far a cup of coffee can go and I was wearing half of it Are we sure it's FRIday??? Good thing it was no longer hot.

I'll be mopping the kitchen floor today.

Talking about office chairs reminded me of when my sister got a new job in Copenhagen. She was quite surprised. The company ergonomist came to her office and spent a half an hour adjusting chair, desk, etc. for her. My sister was very comfortable in that office. Some of the adjustments were done in ways that weren't the obvious way to do it..

Aw, it's just a tiny, little spider - less than a quarter inch. They live in Australia; they aren't venomous; and they don't bite people.
