Warning: Exercise is Harmful to Your Health

So yesterday we decided to go for a bike ride around North Park. It's about a 45 minute ride with a couple of good hills, so I thought it would be a good cardio workout on such a lovely day. Little did I know that it would cause me a great deal of pain.

Now, it wasn't the bike ride itself that caused the pain...it was getting the bikes in and out of the back of the vehicle we took them to the park in. I was yanking the entangled bikes out of the back and I felt one of those little "uh oh" snaps. Not a pain per se, but anyone over 30 probably knows that feeling. It's that "oh boy, this is going to hurt in a day or two" indicator. Sure enough, last night I started to get this knot in my back right between my shoulder blade and my spine.

Today, I can't find a single comfortable position...even with prescription muscle relaxer and prescription analgesic pad on my back. Yeah, this sucks.

Unrelated, we saw this little guy at the Animal Rescue League. Please, someone in Pittsburgh take him home. The thought of the little fella being dropped off after 3 years and left for the unknown is tearing me up! I'm not in a position right now to take in a dog, but I can't believe someone would do that. His name is Tigger and he's soooo cuddly. He's about 2 times the size of a pomeranian and has the cutest little black nose and big sad eyes.

I would love to not work so I could stay at home and care for a ton of puppies, but I can't right now. Anyone wanna support the Scottie House Doggie Shelter? I'll start accepting donations.

**UPDATE** Tigger has been adopted. *whew*

Hmm...do you have a cat? I wonder how your cat would feel if you started Scottie House? You could rescue cats, too, but then you don't want to be like the cat lady with 300 cats..
