Well, today the temp was wonderful mid 60's and not a cloud in the sky.  I felt great this morning because it was so warm and I FINALLY got a good night's sleep.
 
So at work, I decided to clean the windows. yeah   Sounded like a great idea at the time. idea With a squeege and the whole bit.  We have 6 windows about 14 foot tall and 6 feet wide.  Pretty big windows. 
 
My sales guy moved all the tires for me(yea I was smart enough not to do that scool   and I set out cleaning the windows.  There was ALOT of arm movement...don't know if you all have ever clean windows with a squeege before, but you have to press kinda hard to not leave streaks.  So I clean all these windows inside and out first with the cleaning wand then with the squeeze part. 
 
Now all I can say is ouchie ouchie.  I cannot lift my arms any higher that my chest area and my back and feet are killing me. shakehead
 
So I am here to tell you.  Alot of us will start to feel better as the weather keeps getting warmer.  Just a little advice, still take it slow and work your way up to things.  I have been so inactive this winter because I was hurting so bad that I didnt move about as much as I should have.  But I have learned my lesson to take it slow and work up my endurance as the weather gets warmer.  Because now I am off this weekend and it is supposed to be 70 degrees here and I am more than likely NOT to get to enjoy it because of the mistake I made today cry

OoooO! Missy,

I made that same exact mistake about 5 years ago.  Took me forever to get over it.  Needless to say, I never washed THOSE windows again.  It wasn't worth it!!

Take a nice long bath/shower and snuggle into bed.  Sorry you're a hurtin' puppy!!

Take care,


Patti

Hi Missy. I've made that same mistake before. What is it about cleaning windows? I guess we use muscles that we don't usually use so much. My windows are dirty right now and we have company coming to stay with us in two weeks. I'll probably do a window a day. I understand the ouchie part. Even though I was recently diagnosed I've had these pains for years. We use to own apartments that I would help clean when a tenant moved out, windows included. I would have trouble turning the steering wheel in my car afterward.

I know!!! Use that windex window cleaner stuff that you hook to a hose! It isn't perfect, but does an ok job. I hope you feel better soon Missy. Maybe a hot bath and some gentle stretching will help.
