of something like this.....which would be a great relief from our 90+ degree heat! Altho I'm not going to complain, it's MUCH hotter all across the southland from coast to coast!
The Universe had other plans for me this weekend. The delightful trip to see some of my grandsons(including the newest one, Zander)got cancelled unexpectedly Friday night. I had turned off the bedroom light and crossed the room to open the window a bit wider and adjust the blinds. When I turned back to go to bed,I caught my big toe(left foot) in the laundry basket and a took a full length "header" across the room. I grabbed for something that wasn't there, and took the full impact on my left knee, right shoulder and forehead! Definitely NOT a graceful landing. I saw multicolored stars, a flash of white light and maybe Daffy Duck dashing past..LOL. Amazingly I didn't knock myself out completely and I didn't break anything. For that alone I am most grateful and blessed. My left knee is much worse for the impact,too stiff to bend and very painful. Getting up and down from a chair requires some thinking.
My shoulder is stiff, but it mostly works, and I managed not to give myself a black eye when I hit my forehead.
I thought maybe I could still manage the trip, but morning brought a whole new set of things to deal with, and 7 hours in a truck didn't seem intelligent. I got hold of DD#1 and she asked DH to ride along, which he did. THe packages got delivered to the grandkids and all's well that ends well.
I've slept quite abit off and on yesterday and today,seems odd, but it must be what my body needs. I'm less stiff tonight, but I'm not jumping over any boxes or laundry baskets. I've learned my lesson,next time I'll put the clean clothes away right away!
