The pain in my back reached horrifying heights, and I spent much of the night doped on Robaxacet (I took three of them in the end), and keeping ice on my back.
Got up this morning with the pain somewhat subsided. Managed to crawl out of bed and make some breakfast - just a boiled egg, some toast, and decaf coffee - and swallowed two more Robaxacet. Then I looked out the window at the front of the house to see the state of my car, and this is what I saw.
They're cleaning the parking lot, so I'm going to have to decide whether I want to go out and get the car started and cleaned off, so my parking space can be scraped. So I've already showered (the heat didn't do that much for my back), and just have to cool off a bit from that before I can go outside.
In the meantime, a cup of chai tea and some work to finish up the write-up on the Pachycephalosaurus from Primeval: New World for the Primeval RPG system.
Then I may just spend the rest of the day in bed or on the couch with an ice pack on my back.
