I heart Fall in the air not fall on the ground

This is a good Fall.

This is the bad fall.

 Found this pic on Flicker and it best describes my lunch yesterday. Lickity-split might be the better picture. LOL

Yep, at lunch yesterday, I had time to run over to the hospital for lunch with a couple of my friends. They have good healthy food for really inexpensive. That's where I can get in my veggies.

There is a really big, nice sitting area on a deck with a waterfall, very nice on pretty days.
Anyways, you have to walk through the landscaping to step on the deck which leads to the back door of the cafeteria.

In my tailored dress with heels and a labcoat, I stepped and there was mold growth evidently which was slick on the decking. I did a wonderful split that I haven't done since high school and fell to the left on the ground. Embarassing. Everyone went "OH" at one time. I got up and didn't look at who saw all that and we went straight in.
Thought I was ok, but an hour later started having muscle spasms in the left side of my upper back and left arm where I had surgery just was losing strength. I called them concerned that someone else may get hurt and they were only concerned with getting their landscaping crew out to tidy it up vs. me falling down.
Took a muscle relaxer and I laid on the sofa, just woke up at 6am ......on the sofa. Sore as all get out.
Hubbie said this morning he asked me to go to the bed twice and I was quite irritable. I don't even remember it.
This is my day off and had a long list of things to do like clean the house. We'll see if this medicine will take effect so I can get them done.
Falling at 47 is much more complicated than age 27 that's for sure.

Onward to the morning............


  1. Sooo sorry to hear about your
    fall, Jennifer. Praying you
    will heal quickly and still
    get some things done today
    as planned.
    Take care,

  4. Salut!!!My name is bogdan from Romania!!!

  5. Sorry to hear you took such a tumble. Oww! Hope you feel better soon. I know how that is...I have the tendency of falling down the stair...often!

  6. Ouch! I can feel your pain just from your description. I do hope you are getting some rest and feeling better!

    Take it easy and let BG pamper you!

  7. I hope you are okay. Love the picture.

  10. Ooooh, I feel your pain - my name isn't Calamity for nothing! Joking aside, I hope you're feeling better this evening and can take it easy for another day or two.

  11. Ouch! So sorry to hear about your fall. Especially that you had witnesses! Always happens to me that way too.

    I understand about the soreness, it doesn't take much to make our "more mature bodies" purty darn sore. Some days even just vacuuming does it to me! :) Take care of yourself. Wishing you a speedy recovery.

  12. Sorry about your fall. Hope you are feeling better soon.

  13. Sorry to hear about your fall....I have done something similar....and you are right, it is hard to fall when you are no longer in your 20's. Take care and save the cleaning for another day! Dianntha
