Where Does the Carpal Tunnel Go?

Ooh. Weird! Where did that week go?

I didn't even get any significant knitting done - about two inches of sock, maybe (although I got a lot of decreasing done on the toe). And that's it. No wonder I'm cranky and out of sorts!

On the other hand, other than working on my case of carpal tunnel, I've given myself over entirely to the Vampire's (temporary) career. We work on his song. We go to his lessons and work on his song. We grocery shop and eat (we still have to keep body and soul together, of course... think how bad his singing would be without the soul!) and I type, and occasionally I go to bed and get a bit of sleep (not often enough). We talk to publicists and we talk to people about hair. And then we work on the singing a bit more.

Occasionally we do other stuff. Academics, occasionally. At other times we do something crazy and unexpected. Yesterday we locked ourselves out of the car at the gas station, and had to wait until the Vampire could walk home and burglarize our house for the spare set of keys.

Good times...

In the meantime, you can always read the Vampire's blog. He's sneaking up to the computer on the rare occasion that I stumble away from the keyboard in order to have a nice cry and ice my wrists.

Ouch - carpal tunnel is horrible. Hope it calms down a bit.

struggling with carpal tunnel here too.
don't type unnecessarily.
watch the position of your wrists when you surf and all. make sure your forearms are supported and level with your wrists. study the MS Word shortcuts. mostly, pay close attention to which motions hurt, in a very generalized sense, in your life!!
take good care of yourself. find something that delivers a big bang for buck self-wise and try to do that sometimes.
watch the knitting - it's wrists.
so is surfing.
so is typing.
I am trying to cast around (pun ha ha) for something non-hand to do - and coming up with not-much except for reading to RoRo. 8-P
it's horrifying to deteriorate like this, isn't it!?
