And for my next trick

I was going to take the daughter-unit to vision therapy this morning and then tag in with wishweaver who'd take her to her other appointments while I stayed home to watch the Central Missouri Mules actually on National TV (CBS College Sports Network).

That was until I walked down the stairs at 8am.

Well, let me change that. I almost walked down the stairs. I did walk down most of them, then my foot slipped on the next to last one.

BAM!

I found myself laying on my face on the entryway wondering why I hated my body. After a bit, I manged to get the daughter-unit's attention and she helped me up to my feet. After an initial inventory proved everything was still attached and in mostly working order, I determined I managed to bollox up my lower back, neck and right knee.

At this rate, between driving excitement and the inability to walk in my own house without hurting myself, that 50th birthday this summer is looking more and more questionable. *eek!*

So, anyway, Wish had to leave work early and take daughter to appointments. I putz around trying to get comfortable on couch and dial up TV to watch the ballgame. Which is unavailable because we don't have that channel on our current cable package. I did find out later, UCM won, pushing their record to 21-4 on the season with three games to go before the conference tournament. Keeping fingers crossed.

So, I went back upstairs and took a nap.

Still, Wish took me out for sushi tonight and I managed to get some writing done today. Still need to go back and edit Chapter 8 some more, but I'm pushing on with Chapter 9 while I do so. Shadows added 1724 words and with a little luck, I'll get some more done tomorrow, provided my back doesn't tighten up completely tonight.

I've got to have a talk with that voodoo lady and see who put the current curse on me . . .

I'm so sorry to hear that you're hurt.

I hope life starts treating you with some respect soon!

Hooray for words!

I think I hurt my dignity more than my body (although my lower back is starting to object to sitting down for so long).

But, yeah, the story is coming along. Maybe not as fast as I would like, but I'm over the 1/4 mark, so hopefully now we enter the glide path.
