Today was my first day back on the job in awhile.

My trades job anyway because I do expect to make money in this lifetime from writing because a girl has to have a dream.

In my former life in the Film Union I worked in the Paint Department painting Movie Sets.  I may very well have still been there today if the Arthritis in my spine hadn’t spoken up and decided for me that this was no longer suitable for a full time gig.

Nonetheless, if there was one skill I’m fairly competent at it’s House Painting. My friend here in the Cariboo asked if I’d be willing to paint some of the interior of her home while she was out of the country.

Normally I don’t do this anymore as I have a strong work ethic and it’s important to me to meet deadlines, however the calendar on this little number is so wide open that I could take my sweet time and not inconvenience anyone…so I said sure…what the hell.

Today was Day One.

I am aching like you wouldn’t believe. Even a turn on our Ceragem Thermal Massage Bed didn’t work out all the kinks so I’ve turned to my trusty bottle of Zyflamend by New Chapter to bring the inflammation down.  The pity of it is I feel so good when I see the before and after magic transforming before my eyes and the look of “Oh I love it!” in a customers eyes as I hand back the keys.

I guess these days are limited so I’ll be selective as to how many of them I do in the future.  Meanwhile it will be an interesting experiment to see how else my body deals with some serious physical labour while I’m on this cleanse.  You’ll be the first to know.
