One unfortunate Sunday morning a couple weeks ago, I knocked an entire bottle of Topaz’s seizure meds on the kitchen floor. After spending the time needed to find each and every pill and return them safely to their bottle, the zoo was plenty hungry. This means that dogs are pacing and cats are rubbing up against legs, meowing (more like screaming), and jumping up on the counters, oven, and table begging to be fed.
It was late morning and I hadn’t eaten myself. I made my tea and fed everyone.
While carrying my piping hot tea into my office where I could finally sit down to eat and relax after being bombarded by the zoo waiting to be fed, a ridiculous series of events happened.
Simultaneously, and almost in slow motion as I was walking the short distance from the kitchen through the dining room (hallway) to my office, I got a little lightheaded, started to spill my hot tea, tried to correct myself, tripped over Onyx, the older dog, (who was glued to a spot in the walkway eating the most delicious cat vomit on earth apparently because She.Was.Not.Budging), possibly also tripped over my pants….and in an attempt to NOT spill hot tea all over myself…
I fell…slamming my chest into the corner of our kitchen table, knocking the wind out of myself, spilling tea everywhere….and I broke my VERY favorite mug!
(which, I will be replacing…sorry husband man) Hmm… I LOVE this one. Or OMG, these are sweet…I could pick a color and what I wanted it to say – but I’d rather buy it from the USA… so maybe this one instead…the color reminds me of my Granny. Or, I love these too… Decisions…decisions.
Anyway…sorry got distracted….
back to the story…
And as the saying goes… “The bigger they are the harder they fall.”
I wound up fracturing my ribs!!
WHO DOES THAT???!?
Apparently, that would be me.
That was almost 3 weeks ago and the pain is still there. Good God in heaven…who knew it would hurt so dam bad?!!! I cannot believe that it STILL hurts almost 3 weeks later!
So I got some time off work to rest, heal, and manage the pain.
Well that is my story…
Till next time…
