Late this afternoon I posted the following photo on Facebook…
Last Tuesday I went to a pain clinic to have a Paraspinal Injections – Facet Joint and Nerve Root Blocks. I must first go through two trial injections of the facet joint where along with having Fibromyalgia I also have severe arthritis and disk degeneration going on in my lower back.
The injection sites have been tender and with all the bending, twisting and turning I did gardening, my lower back was inflamed. I could no longer finish what I had planned for the day.
I made myself a healthy dinner and sat down to watch a movie where I eventually dozed off.
There was one last thing I needed to do. It was to drive to my neighbors that live on a farm a couple of miles from here to purchase 2 dozen eggs.
I got a text from her saying she would be home in a half an hour and I could stop by then.
That’s When I Got The Idea!
Hmm. Thirty minutes is really 2 – 15 minute sessions of being able to do anything except whine according to FlyLady. I really wanted to get my green beans in before it rains tomorrow.
Out I went back into the garden and instead of using a string to make a straight line like I did five years ago when I began to garden after a hiatus, I estimated. Yup, ‘Perfectionism and Procrastination’ had to go!
Was It The Correct Way?
Maybe not. The thing is, will it really matter when they begin to grow and become mature plants? I think not. And that’s how you get past perfectionism and procrastination.
