The chiropractor helped yesterday, but my back was still dodgy enough I took today off.

I knew they would close the library early, but not until it would be a real mess getting home. They closed at 1:00, and I know it would have been a slow, tense drive. And it would have been more strain on the right hip.

I went back to the chiropractor -- she helped a bit more, but its still not quite right; and took a hot bath.

The pain is low level, but I can't stay in one position for long, which means computer time is in bits and spurts. And I have my normal big storm headache.

I've been alternating comfort rereads with bits of research books -- Roy Chapman Andrews' _Camps and Trails of China_ and Andrew Lang's _Cock Lane and Common-Sense_.

I read a couple of the eARC stories from Baen's Universe -- Jo Walton's and Charlie Stross' in particular.
When I can sit at the computer longer I'll read some of the others.

It's going to be a busy weekend; some cousins are coming from Philadelphia to visit Saturday. The older girl has an interview in New York. The last time I saw her mother, she told us about the girl admitting that she wasn't college material. And I think she's right. Certainly, I think working for a while will be good for her.

I'm going to my Hackmaster game on Sunday, so I'll miss brunch with them, but we should have time for a good visit on Saturday.

It's early, but I'm going to go to bed and try to sleep. Tomorrow I'll have to get the ice off my car. It's possible they might have a delayed opening of the library, but I rather doubt it.
