Back spasms returned, not unexpected

Even though I didn't lift anything heavy, I was lifting a lot, and I wasn't surprised when the knots started shortly after I closed down for the afternoon.


If we had stayed home and I could have got on the heating pad right away, that might have staved off the worst, but I wasn't up to cooking, so we went out.  That was just long enough, and now here I am with the horrible wrenching spasms.


Of course, the studio tour is tomorrow as well, so somehow or other I will have to set up again -- no heavy lifting, but still -- and get through the day.
