So in the past week since returning from our lil getaway, I’ve managed to spend every waking (and sleeping) moment at an institution called school. I’m talkin 18 hour days in front of a computer. Fun stuff. I got home yesterday after a long day and collapsed on the sofa. I began to feel some pretty intense neck pain and was pretty sure I’d pinched a nerve. Or broke a vertebrae. Instead of going to bed, I told Adi I needed to get my mind off of school and so we decided to watch an episode of Grey’s Anatomy. Yes, we watch shows after they’ve wrapped. Adi built me a fort of pillows and propped me up so high, you’d think my back was held up by plywood. This is SO not cool. He would have none of it. You have to sit up straight and support your neck. There’s no arguing with Mr. Chiropractor. Before I could stage another protest, Adi began to build himself the same fort. Instead of sprawling out like the king of the world, he shared in my uncomfortable position to make me feel better. And there we sat, surrounded by supporting lumbar and cervical pillows….perhaps giving us a preview of what our elderly future looks like. Either way, it’s good to know that the only thing that hasn’t been a pain in my neck this week, has been him. Adi, thank you for always supporting me…literally and figuratively. I’m lucky to have you as “my person”. ;)
I’ve read that every post is better with a picture so I’m posting one that is kind of irrelevant. Adi took it while we were on vacation last weekend and I love it because it comes with fond memories. Memories of a stress free time. Memories of feeling alive, pain-free, young, and & in love.
