My back was hurting tonight, so I took a couple of pain killers to help. I went upstairs just a little while ago to get some wrapping paper to work on gifts, and midway down the stairs....


My feet went out from under me, I hit the floor hard on my backside. I tried to catch myself, but it didn't work too well. Things seem to be working correctly, but I look like I lost a fight. My left hand is pretty banged up. The backside of my right arm is bruised and hurts. The lower part of my back is cut and an angry red, as is my butt on the right side. My head hurts just a little bit.

Since I'm on pain killers, I'm sure it is masking some of the pain. I'm not looking forward to what tomorrow morning will feel like.

as i read this, i am reminded of Scott's commentary last week about my single-story sprawl-house being "a retirement home".

are you envious now? huh? :)

I was envious on Monday, when the fall occurred.

I wasn't yesterday, when, although my hip and tailbone were REALLY painful, the rest of my body where I thought I would be so sore...wasn't.

I'm back to being envious. The soreness I thought would kick in the next morning, kicked in THIS morning. Yip. :)

Now it's off to get Matthew's oh-so-fashionable PH Probe removed, along with the stylish backpack monitor that goes with it. He took to it amazingly well and had no problems. It's off for a VERY early morning drive down to Children's.

I've still been fighting this cold-slash-throat thing .. ended up taking a dose of Vick's Nighttime around 5:30am which wiped me out .. geez, I hate feeling groggy!

I was up and about at 4:30am and heard the newspaper drop on the lawn, so I went outside to fetch it, take a look at my frozen breath, and quickly come back inside to catch up on the local happenings!

Given all that, what do you consider to be "VERY early morning"? 3am? {grin}

Very early morning to me is anything before 8 *laugh*

No, this morning truly was very early for us. I had to get up at 5 am to get myself and Matthew ready, get Michael's school stuff ready (mom came over to feed him while I was gone), and be on the road for 6 am. We were actually HOME by 8:30, in plenty of time for me to drive both boys to school.
