Here are some of the fun updates that we have done around our condo to make it function better for us, and to make me happy…cause I’m crazy and certain things drive me crazy.
I have two house plants at the moment. I cannot say that I have a black thumb because my peace lily is a few years old now, and I haven’t killed it yet. Honestly, I am surprised I haven’t,but I’m not complaining since they are pretty hardy. It hasn’t died yet and has bloomed each year. I then branched out and got a Fiddleleaf Fig Tree FicusÂ that you see on all the blogs because they are just so pretty. I couldn’t find one ANYWHERE here. I called every nursery, home depot, and lowes to no avail, so I ended up buying it via Amazon.
This is just a quick post about what I found to organize my Gel Nail Supplies. I wanted something that could fit everything in one container that I could grab and go if needed.
I have been having weird issues with my back/shoulder. No pain, but I noticed a while ago that one shoulder was higher than the other. We were pretty sure it was from the type of purse I was carrying. So I switched to a messenger/cross body purse so it wouldn’t get worse. Two months ago, I started going once a week to this spine care specialist/chiropractor(all of the hospitals and physical rehab places only refer to him). Anyway, he looked at my shoulder and said it is an easy fix because there is no damage yet,but if I had waited 20 years or so, I would have needed rotator cuff surgery which would have been painful, long recovery, and expensive. So he did tissue massages to loosen the muscles so they can start going to the right places, gave me exercises to do at home, and told me the best thing I can do is get a standing desk at home. He said the purse did a little,but mainly it is sitting at a computer which go figure I do all day. He said that when you stand your head weighs about the equivalent of 10 pounds and your back, neck, and shoulder muscles all go back and forth maintaining balance. He said when you sit, your head shifts forward and your head weighs the equivalent of 25 pounds and it is only your neck muscles that get the strain. He said this is why so many people have a lot of neck strain among other health issues from sitting all day. I don’t have that issue,but with bending forward and using my mouse with my right hand, the right shoulder was slowly starting to turn in. It will slowly fix itself with a standing desk since your posture is different when you stand. We were worried about going to a chiropractor because we have been to some who never have an ending date they just always want you to come back and pay even if you don’t need it. So luckily, I am already down to once every two weeks, and next month it will change to once a month, and then only when I feel like I need to go. So, I am happy we decided to have me go just in case because we are trying to take care of ourselves as preventative maintenance.
