A Sure Sign I'm Getting Old

I'm always sore the day after physical therapy. I blame all the single legged bridges I have to do on a platform (because I'm not strong enough to do it on a weighted ball). And sitting for long periods is sometimes difficult.

I tried the heated seat element in my car, but it wasn't really in the right place.

So, I went to Target looking for a heating pad thinking I'll be sore for the drive to pick up MacTroll in Detroit. I should take along some Aleve and some heat.

I found this heating pad that looks like a belt for your back and hips that plugs in for $29. So if I get stiff, I can strap it on and plug it into the electrical outlet in my car and cruise on down the highway.

I was giddy at its brilliance.

Target, I love you.

ha, we bought a heating pad this past winter also... works wonders for sore backs and pain around that time of the month also... Enjoy the drive!

I just like that you said 'strap it on and plug it in.'

Quigs78 said...

After you 'get stiff.'

Heh! I am with Quigs, LOVE that you can strap it on and plug it in when you get stiff :) Made me chuckle a bit. Hope you have fun on your trip!

Ahhh, this is why we're friends because I find my predicament pretty entertaining. If I didn't laugh, I'd cry. So you know... :-)

Ahhh. Wait, I was going to joke about the strap it on... but Quigs beat me to it! It was too good to pass up (that's what she said).

Gah, you people and your strap on stuff, seriously! LOL

Does it have one of those annoying auto shut offs? I have an old school, likely to burn down the house, heating pads and it will stay on forever. Now they are all "safe" and shut off after 15 minutes. Maybe I like it hotter than that, they don't know. Have good trip:)
