So far this month I have kept up with the number of days. What I mean is, even though I haven’t posted everyday, I have made up for days missed with extra posts the next day. So I am feeling pretty good about my writing so far this year.

Another thing, is that I haven’t missed because I just blew off the blog. Normally I had a good reason. Like the day I was in the E.R. until 11:00 p.m. and didn’t get home until 2:00 a.m. Yesterday my reason for not posting was I fell. I will tell you the whole story.

Wednesday was my regular day off. I woke up with a horrible head-ache. I decided to get up because a lot of times when I wake up with a headache I end up feeling better if I get up and move around. So I got up, went to turn my computer on and then went to the bathroom. Instead of feeling better however, I started feeling like I was going to throw up. So I went back to bed, until Gwen knocked on my door asking if I got Em’s tweet which was Em asking if I could bring her a salad from Subway. So I dragged myself out of bed to do it. My thinking was, if I starting doing something I would feel better, and maybe some coffee and food would help get rid of my headache.

After pulling on my rainboots and coat I ran out to start my car, then I hurried back in down the 3 cement steps to my basement/apartment door, and slipped on the ice, hitting the brick wall on my way down. I bruised my butt, banged up my shoulder and broke my pinkie nail. I proceeded to get up and walk in the basement and cry to Gwen, “I fell!” However, since I could walk, I of course washed my hands, changed my pants and proceeded to do my errands.

While running my errands, I took a moment to make some calls. I called my doctor to see if I could get in to see him. Then I called my boss to tell him I fell and wasn’t going to be in Thursday. He said, “Take the rest of the week.” Then we came home, I decided to come in through the basement. Gwen said to be careful, I was careful, I promise I was careful. I fell again. This time I landed on my left side.

After the second fall, I decided to go get checked out. I went to Urgent Care and they took x-rays. Nothing broken. So I came home, and I was just too tired to write and ended up going to bed around 7:30.
