#JusJoJan the 20th/23 – Ain’t phantom pain


The prompt word for January 20th was “phantom.” Thanks, Tuba, for the fun prompt!

I’m a day late with this one, in part because I’ve had a stunningly busy couple of days, and in part because of a crippling stiff neck.

It plagued me all day yesterday, but it was better this morning. Now it’s back, probably due to the fact that I’m stressed over not getting everything done.

It’s a circle.

The circle of life.

Is a pain in the neck. Apparently.

But really, I can pretty much count on some kind of ailment showing up when I’m busy.


See what I did up there, though?

Now I don’t have to write a separate SoCS post.

Sneaky me.

  2. Hope the neck improves quickly.💜💜


  3. It seems as we get older, our bodies get better at sending us stress messages. Do we ever get everything done? Try some heat and get some rest.


  4. Hope you feel better Linda. Get some rest my friend
