Celebrate, y’all! It’s November! October is OVAH! But not before I managed to tweak my back again. Get this:
I was feeling pretty good. Cocky, even. I’m a freaking psychic, I *know* how to heal my body. I was feeling strong, healthy, and ambitious!
I got home on Thursday night, a little distracted by the things I was wanting to do this weekend. I noticed the toilet bowl was empty of water, so I flushed it without thinking… and the water started to back up.
Horrifyingly dark water, rising rapidly!
I snatched for the plunger and *EEERK*! Ah, no! Not my back! Not now!
All I could do was sit on the bathroom floor, breathing through the muscle spasm, trying not to do anything that would make it worse, helpless to do ANYTHING about the smelly, swirling vortex rising relentlessly in the toilet bowl. Dear god, I thought, please don’t let it overflow. I knew I couldn’t get out of the way if it did.
So I just took it easy yesterday, spending most of the day installed on a heating pad with muscle relaxants and anti-inflammatories coursing through my bloodstream… and I’ll tell you, I got so much done!
I finally got my booking system on to an online system. This has already improved the process monumentally – instead of playing email tag with clients for days or weeks to figure out a date and collect payment, this new system does it all for me! I woke up this morning and two people had booked themselves appointments and paid for them.
Hallelujah! I may be able to double the number of weekly readings I can manage with all the time I’m saving with this billing system and having a cleaner.
And that makes me very, very happy. Maybe this is why I hurt my back this month.

omg, hilarious! not that you’re back went out again, of course, but your relationship with the toilet (i was reading twitter, too)!!! along similar lines, i recently came across this quote from an unknown author: “an arrow can only be shot by pulling it backward. when life is dragging you back with difficulties, it means its going to launch you into something great. so just focus and keep aiming.” seems like your online booking system is a “bull’s eye”!
2 questions about online booking for not-quite-straight-forward-readings: do you know if you’ll offer holiday packages if we want to purchase them as gifts? will you offer new year report cards this year? if so, should i just put that specific info in the comments section of the booking page?
AD – thank you for asking! Yes for new years report cards, they were a great success last year.
Gift cards – amazing idea *forehead smack* Sweetie and i will figure out how to make that work!
You found the Silver Lining. ♡
