New blog post is on the blog!!! We are back in Portland now, but in our travels we experienced some difficulties in Nashville that sent us back to Oregon earlier than planned. Hopefully we will be able to get back out on the road just before New Years but everything is still up in the air. To learn more, check out the link in our bio!
Friday was a day of weird coincidences. With snow predicted for late Saturday night (it’s coming down now 😤), I decided to beat the crowds and get groceries very early Friday morning. I did a quick pass through the Christmas department at Walmart and found this single, crumpled card of little red truck ornaments. Coincidence #1 - this is how the back of my little red car looks now. I was waiting at a red light when I was rear ended. Luckily no one was hurt, and my car can still be driven. Best of all, my granddaughter wasn’t with me at the time. Coincidence #2 - the man who hit me turned out to be a neighbor from around the corner. Though it was too soon to have authorization from his insurance company for repairs, I decided to get an estimate that afternoon before the body shops were slammed with snow-related accidents. When I showed the police paperwork to the woman at the desk, she began to laugh. Coincidence #3 - the man who hit me had just been in for his estimate. Seems this guy goes to many of the same places that I do. He just better stay out of the ornament aisle at Walmart. Any more little red trucks that show up there are mine! #littleredtruck#walmartfinds#rearended#weirdcoincidence
I woke up thinking I would be able to work on my car today on my days off, not expecting that wouldn’t have any access to my tools that I use to work on my car because I ended up getting rear ended today after leaving my girlfriends house. now everything is locked in until it gets repaired.. and now hours later, everything hurts ..lol some luck I’m having
[2/12/18] You may suspect I caused a #carcrash judging by #pics uploaded behind the wheel which isn't the case in the slightest - I was #rearended#onthewayhome . It's not an ending I ever saw coming, as I assumed the #toyotacorollasport I'd owned for six years and over five months would last longer than past cars owned. No grudges, resentment or anger - just gratitude for leaving the vehicle shaken but unscathed and for all of the great, blessed help I've had at the scene, particularly in managing to get home. Some of these shots in this #layout were taken this morning, as I bid the #writtenoffcar#goodbye , while emptying the boot and glove compartments at #albionparkrail (if you're as insanely a loner as I who only had such a car as a "companion" around you more than people then - gee I don't know -- maybe **you'd** probably send it off like I've done here).
Had a very adventurous Shopping 🛍 day with Kimbo @143kimbo that ended with a REAR END crash on back beach road... 😭 Firefighters checked us out... This whiplash is gonna suck. So glad we are okay 🙏🏻 & Thank you PCB officers 👮🏻♀️ & firefighters 👨🏻🚒 #PCB#panamacitybeach#rearended#Whiplash#CrazyDay

Do you have back pain, arthritis, joint pain, gout, an old injury, etc. Does you pain get worse when it rains or it is cold?
Why the pain gets worse:
When the pressure in the atmosphere is low, clouds and rain are much more likely, and the dampness increases pain and stiffness. One theory on how dampness increases your pain is that the reduction in pressure in the atmosphere allows bodily fluids to move from blood vessels to tissues, causing swelling and pressure on the nerves in those tissues, as well as an increase in fluid in the affected joints. The pressure on the nerves and in the joints would naturally cause increased pain, stiffness and reduced mobility.
Weather contributes to increase pain in a number of ways:
a) Blood Flow: cold temperatures cause blood to be diverted to the body core (chest and abdomen) and so there is reduced blood flow to muscles (stiffness). b) Activity: people are generally less active in cold weather, thus joints and muscles get less blood flow.
c) Hormones: In cold weather, the thyroid gland has to 'step up to the plate' and do a bit more work to keep your body temperature up.
d) Immune System: In cold weather, we are more likely to gain weight, because we eat more “comfort foods.” Very often, since much of the immune system surrounds the GI tract, this diet causes a general state of inflammation in the body, activating certain chemicals in the body.
f) Cloudy and short days: Some people develop what is commonly known as "Seasonal Depression". Depression is very closely associated with chronic pain.
What can you do? Listen to your body, clean up your body, hydrate, get moving, and GET ADJUSTED!!! #drivesafe#sandiegorain#sandiegochiropractor#mvachiropractor#healyourbody#recoverfaster#autoaccidentchiropractor#relaxmuscles#whiplash#neckandbackpain#painmanagement#arthritis#sandiegofitness#sandiegoathletes#getadjusted#relaxmuscles#Healthyliving#feelbetter#mindbodyconnection#liveyourbestlife#rainorshine#sandiegoweather#rearended#caraccidentchiropractor#mobility#neckpain#backpain#getadjusted
Will not open tomorrow. Hopefully we'll reopen on Wednesday. We have a few delays. Thanking Our Father for wrapping his arms/wings around our Daughter. This could've been worse! #cartotaled#rearended on South Fulton Pkwy between the Buffington rd and Union City exit. Four minutes from home!
