Happy Easter!

Happy Easter! I hope the Easter Bunny found you and was good to you.

We watched The Simpsons Movie today. It was a lot like the Simpsons tv show except that it was longer and made a bit more sense. As much sense as anything in the Simpsons makes sense, at least. The one question that kept going through my head was whether the dome over the city was what gave Stephen King the idea for his latest book, Under the Dome. In it, a dome - albeit an invisible on - suddenly drops over a city. There's definitely a similarity there.

We're home now. Ian has tomorrow off and we're going to relax and take it easy. I love this idea because something is wrong with my lower back and I want to rest it as much as possible. It started hurting about a week and a half ago and it's been getting progressively worse since then. At this point it hurts when I'm just sitting and getting up from a sitting position or bending over is agony. Once I'm standing, I'm able to walk without too much difficulty, although even walking today is more painful than it was last week. I think I might have hurt it more on that walk we took the other day.

No matter how I hurt it or made the pain worse, I'm basically an invalid right now. Hopefully resting up and doing a whole lot of nothing will help fix it enough so that I can at least stand up easily. Not having to plan my movements and being able to move quickly, almost without thinking about it, would be a welcome change from my present state.
