The Bag Lady is full of little complaints (yes, and aches, too) today. She got up early today with the Rancher..... he gets up between 3 and 4 am to leave for work (and doesn't get home until 7 pm - talk about a long day!) and has been battling cramps in her legs (which is why she couldn't go back to sleep for the 2 hours until her own wake time.) The Bag Lady has degenerative disc disease in her back and has been having a bad spell for the last week or so. Something has shifted yet again, causing pain, numbness and muscle weakness in her hips and legs. She has been experiencing so much muscle weakness, in fact, that she will suddenly fall to her knees! Which causes her to exclaim "Jesus!" in as joyous a voice as she can fake, in an attempt to convince people that she's been overcome by a religious fervour (fever?) and is falling to her knees to pray.

She will stop whining soon, though, because she has to go for a mammogram and an ultrasound this morning before she goes to work. Perhaps the idea of having her poor tiny tatas pancaked is contributing to her crankiness.....
