I Just Started a New Job

My uncle was the one who told me about this job, although I am not really sure how long it is going to last. He has been having back issues for years and every now and then he has to go to a Sacramento chiropractic clinic to get an adjustment. At any rate we all got together for a birthday party last weekend and he told me that the receptionist there was pregnant and almost ready to pop. He knew where my resume was and he had given it to the office manager without asking anyone. At any rate they called me up and told me to come in and get started. So I came in and I got a really cold start to the job, not knowing a single thing about how this stuff works.

Just Got Settled in Fremont

We have been here a couple of weeks. I came ahead though and I have been here a few weeks longer. Louise stayed back in Fullerton waiting for the school year to end and staying with her Mom. Of course we had no real choice about moving. Louise had no trouble getting a teach job here in Fremont and it was either accept the transfer or find a new job for me. The company gave me a raise and helped with the moving expenses, it’s clear that I was wanted. I had to find a dentist in Tracy. In fact it is not too surprising, but you eat peanut brittle a lot of times and never have any problems. I love the stuff and I probably eat some of it about once or twice every month. It is not like it is a really bad habit or anything, but I like the stuff and I eat it occasionally.

Slow Speed Accident Gave Me Back Pain

I was just getting on the highway when I got hit in the rear of my car. I saw the car coming, but it actually stopped. Then it was banged into and pushed into mine. I was surprised at how a slower speed collision could result in such a jolt. I had my headrest in the proper place, so my neck did not whip back over the seat. Still, I felt pain after the jolt. It was not bad at the time, and I suppose that was because of adrenaline. The next day I saw a chiropractor in Cumming GA because of the discomfort.

I really tightened up seeing that car almost hit me, then I must have begun to relax a bit when I actually got hit. I don’t know. The hit only pushed me forward a few feet, but it sure jostled me really hard in the car. I must have wrenched something in my neck or back. It was not comfortable. I did not go to the hospital until later, and they could not find anything seriously wrong.

The Bat and the Back

Every year there is a baseball game between the local high school students and their parents. The parents always try to win, but every year they get outclassed by the students. This year the parents had a secret weapon: me. I had been training all year by going to the batting cage to perfect my hit. During the big game, the score was tied in the final inning, and I hit a home run that gave us the win, but in the process I twisted my back. Rather than celebrating, I went to a chiropractor in San Jose to get rid of the pain my back.

The victory was a painful one, but it was one that I was glad to experience.
