I received my Christmas present somewhat early. This afternoon in fact. I found heaven in a chair at Bed, Bath & Beyond in the form of a Homedics Roller Massaging Cushion. I sat down in the display in the store to try it out. I was a goner. It felt so good! I hope I wasn’t drooling as shoppers walked past me.
I’m sitting here with it strapped into my desk chair typing with the mechanism gnawing into the sore muscles of my aching back. Oh….
I made myself get up and go outside to take these photos. How is it I didn’t manage to find this sweet thing earlier?
I have stood against the corner of a door frame, pushing my back into the wood, trying to gain relief. I have just this morning put an ice pack underneath my back while on the floor and my lower legs and feet up on the couch, trying to find something akin to comfort.
But these “fingers” reach down really d-e-e-p. I am in love. For once in my life, I understand men being enamored of remote controls. I can’t keep my hands off of this one!
Can you get too much of a good thing? All I know is, every gardener needs one of these. I work out in the yard until I’m huffing and puffing and seemingly about to blow the house down. I am not a youngester anymore. My bones and my muscles and my arthritis hurts. Yet I am not one of those people who happens to be good at “taking it easy.” If it’s not raining, and sometimes even if it is, I’m outside doing something. Bending, reaching, lifting, raking, digging. You get the picture. I do stretching exercises for my back and neck twice per day.
The other day I got a lovely massage. Then came straight home like a fool and went back outside and started working. I am the Energizer bunny that cannot stop. And my poor body pays the price for it.
So not only am I lucky enough to get my beloved French doors, that Bonnie longingly stares out of night and day. But now I have found a tireless set of magical fingers that dig into my deepest sore spots and make me almost giddy with relief.
Someone please tell me this is not a dream…
