Okay so who watched the Superbowl? Wizard turned it on when he got home from racing and I saw some of the half time show. But I was tired and a little achy from…well even I can’t even make this stuff up:
So some of you may have seen on FB where I mentioned that last Tuesday night I was coming down the stairs, missed a step, hit my bad ankle and twisted it. It was a MINOR twist. I limped for a couple days, and then just had to be careful not to pivot on it. It didn’t even bruise and was healing fast. Just a minor twist. I wouldn’t even call it sprained.
Then Saturday morning I’m coming down the stairs and thinking/worrying/stressing about the book (why can’t writing be easy???) and then shifted my thoughts to, Hmm, my ankle’s pretty good now, I bet I can clean the bathrooms…
BOOM The very next step I slipped again. In front of Wizard.
Cue the explosion from Wizard. I mean for about thirty seconds, he lost it, yelling that we were moving to a one story house. As in PACK UP THE HOUSE RIGHT THIS SECOND WE’RE MOVING.
Okay…as soon as I got upset he calmed down instantly. Aside from terminal embarrassment I was okay.
We decided against moving
So Wizard went off to do something with middle son and I decided I should try putting on on shoes (I hadn’t been wearing then to rest my ankle) I went upstairs and got my shoes, and came down stairs fine. See? All good. I learned my lesson to pay attention to what I’m doing.
So I’m sitting on my chair at my desk, and I bend over to adjust my shoe where it’s tied close to my ankle…THE DESK CHAIR ON ROLLERS SLIDES OUT FROM UNDER ME AND I FALL ON MY ASS.
I swear I can’t make this up. That has never happened. NEVER. I’ve worked at this desk since 2002! I’m sat on the floor, laughing so hard, I had tears. Because…seriously? Who does that? I’m not even particularly uncoordinated. I can balance on one foot in yoga poses, but I can’t sit in a chair and adjust my shoe?
I told Wizard when he came home and held my breath. I wasn’t sure if he’d lose his temper or fall over laughing. He tried, really tried to keep a straight face but within two seconds he was laughing.
I told BLB (Youngest Son) the next day when he stopped by. Same thing, he laughed too. Plus they could both see I was moving around fine.
Feel free to laugh too. I have a few minor sore muscles that kicked in about 2am Sunday morning but by the time you guys read this, I’ll probably feel much better. However I am wondering: Do they sell seat belts for desk chairs?
Otherwise my weekend was busy juggling some projects, and I am going right into panic mode on CAGED MAGIC (we all knew it would happens. And I’m pretty sure that has something to do with my suddenly clumsiness).
How was your weekend?
