Cripey as the New Zealanders would say.........

Today was not my day. After the day I had Monday I thought things could only get better. Today proved that might not necessarily be true. I got all spruced up today and went to work wearing my new blazer that I had purchased last winter but finally had the sleeves hemmed on. A black skirt, black blazer with the fringe and red stripes. Wore a red turtleneck and looked pretty good I thought. We were having a meeting at work and the boss was providing pizza and drinks. An entire office full which is rare. Here I am sitting across from the doorway of the meeting when I get a phone call from our IT person. He had to quickly hand up so I hung up the phone which is on the wall in the media room and my butt slid just shy of the leather chair. BOOM! My but hit the hard floor first followed shortly by my head. Did I mention that my blood thinner was working overtime and I was NOT supposed to get injured this week? I began to feel panicky but kept it under control. I was SOOO embarassed as everyone began to come in to see how I was. To think I wore a skirt for the fall. Sheesh. I assured them I was ok and I only had an hour left to work so I finished up the sheets I was working on and left. I am sore. My hand, arm, leg and head. I came home and my son was here. Trust me the nut didn't fall far from this old acorn. He was worried silly and wanted me to let him take me to an ER. I told him that I was ok. He got a light and shined it into my eyes to see how my pupils looked. He assured me that they had no signs of anything wrong. I called the internist who told me not to worry unless I began to have symptoms such as a rapidly intense migraine, throwing up, visual disturbances or loss of consciousness. This is the killer. It's Rob's dart night. I refuse to tell him and have him miss it. It's the only thing he does for himself. I will bite the bullet and watch Shrek DVDs to keep myself entertained. At least it's not two years ago where I would have had myself dead and buried by now. I'm a lot tougher than even I realized I was.
On a different note, some of you have noticed I removed Duffy's picture. Sorry but I was unable to decode the html and make the font big enough to read. I have tried installing the previous flower template I used and that won't load even though I did everything the same. I have uploaded the template to a URL and it still isn't showing. AT this time I am giving up on a fancy blog and going back to the standards.
I see that AOL put on a disclaimer about the ads. TOO LITTLE TOO LATE. They have made it really easy to leave them. Every IT person I talk to says they have the worst service and all the downloads they send are bad for your computer.

I fall down all the time. One of these days I'm going to bust my head open, or land wrong. I'm living on borrowed time. So glad you are not hurt....It always hurts more the day after. Glad it is two years later for you.

Ouch! So sorry to hear of your fall! Have you considered wrapping yourself in bubble wrap?!?!
;-)
Peace, Virginia

Ouch! You sound like me! LOL I miss the Duffster's picture, but I understand why you're going without a back. Oooo. I said back. Is your back okay? And that disclaimer is a riot. Almost as funny as the flying scooter.
