Tuesday nullified by back pain

Ugh is there anything worse than back pain when your living room could pass for a hobo community?

The past few weeks worth of cleaning, painting and moving stuff using adrenaline rather than strength finally caught up to me this morning when I was in sufficient pain to take pain killers.

I spent most of the day in bed, relying on relatives and Dominos for food. I didn't even brush my teeth until around 2pm because I was expecting company. They left and I took another two hour nap. I figure all this tiredness is as much a response to moving as it is to the need to heal.

Subsequently I didn't get much done today. I eyed the bluely charged Mint when I finally started moving at 6pm and set it loose on the same room as last night. Nothing new to report on that end - it pushed around the same stuff and came back with a clean rag.

Tomorrow is the final test for that Mint.

I am going to set it on sweep (yes in the same room) then mop. As you can tell I really want this device to work but if it doesn't do a good job I am contacting Amazon and sending it back.

Here's what I realized - in addition to having white tiles most of my furniture is white and my baseboards are all ivory. Do I want a little robot to push wet dirt into them for the next few years?


That's all from me. Its nigh on 10:30 and my back is telling me it wants to lay back down.
