Just a short blog
Make that last month and this month. I can hardly type, see or move. I fell out of the taxi (SOBER) yesterday and I am hurting. I even managed to blacken my eye a bit so it's twitching like crazy. The driver is probably still in shock and since he was knee high to a grasshopper, he had no chance of hauling me up. The grass was wet with dew so I couldn't get any purchase with the feet and the kneeling on the scar tissue was really a hurt I could do without. Fortunately my neighbour came over and grabbed a patio chair, so with both holding the back of the chair steady, I managed to crawl up and sit. After I sit I can stand up and walk away, no problems until the brain starts getting "attention! Pain" from everywhere. I always ask the drivers to park away from the gutter edge so I can put my feet down flat then get out but hernextdoor's daughter was giving violin lessons so parking anywhere was a problem especially anywhere near my drive not her's. It was as I turned to get my things from the back seat that I went splat. It just added to the hurts from trying to get into a jeep in the pouring rain last Thursday. I didn't have a choice, it was that or stay with mother. The taxi website crashed and so did the phone site. I should have left sooner but since it was my birthday I thought I should stay with the old girl. Wrong, she rang on Friday terribly sorry because she didn't say Happy Birthday and she had an awful night because she couldn't remember how old I was or where I was born. And I arrived home freezing cold and soaking wet and hurting. Now hurting more and still shaking. I'll pick myself up and be back soon.
