Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival

I turned down a free ride from Ivete to go the MD Sheep and Wool Festival because I couldn't get out of work this weekend.

This morning, I woke up at 4:30 am with the unfortunate realization that I couldn't move my upper body without extremely sharp pain coming from my neck and shooting into my right shoulderblade and down into my right arm. After some internet research, I found that I have what's called a "crick" in my neck that should go away on its own with time and rest. Yay.

Right now, after Bobby's help, I'm propped up in bed by every pillow in the apartment. Can't move, can't go to work, can't go to the festival, can't even knit. Major weekend failure.

To everyone going to MD: have fun and take lots of photos please!

Oh no! That's terrible! We didn't end up going actually, because Shana and I both bought nothing at the last show we went to and I decided I didn't want to drive 3.5 hours each way to not buy anything! Call me if you need anything, I'll come over and help. I hope you feel better soon!

Ouch those are the worst. Try putting a heating pad or Ben Gay on it if you can, that usually works for me:)

aw poo. I'm sorry you didn't get to to to MDSW. Eventually, I want to go to one of those fiber-fests too. Those neck cricks SUCK! I hate to say I seem to get them occasionally, but I'm convinced it's due to trying to reach the snooze button while I'm still asleep in a weird position. Hope you get a nice hotpa--also, some tiger balm or peppermint essence stuff might help to relax or numb it a bit.

What the heck is a hotpa? I meant hotpad.

Oh no, I hope it goes away soon and hasn't totally screwed up your weekend. : ( hot baths might help a bit.

Bedridden and unable to knit?! I think you might be in Hell, but I'm not sure.

If the neck doesn't get better within a day, see an osteopath or a chiropractor. Investigate different pillows, too.
