12/19 A Blah Blog

Ever since I started writing the column my blog has suffered. Many of you are probably smiling at that. But tough--here I am.

Things are going well. I love the writing and have been getting a good response. Nothing like having a huge family. :)

But alas, I fell today on the ice--right in front of my house. The roads are okay right now, but the sidewalks are treacherous. Of course it felt like slow motion, of course I cracked my sidewalk, of course every muscle hurts.

But the good news is that I didn't re-injure my back. The pain there is just muscle stuff from trying not to fall. What a joyous afternoon--came home after a Christmas lunch to let Gus out and kaplowee. Down for the count.

So after I write my article for today, it's going to be bed and a heating pad. 'Cause now it's the weekend and there are Christmas presents to be purchased. :) I just received $600 unexpected dollars from various sources, and still haven't been paid from examiner.com yet. So it's going to be a good Christmas, although most of this will go to buy a plane ticket for LA. Gotta see those grandkids (and Jill and Todd of course).

Must start writing. Love to all. (Ouch.)

I hope you don't feel pain from the fall. Although tomorrow you might experience that muscle... Please, be careful, mom!!!!

I'm actually feeling pretty good. Some soreness, but no big deal. Love you.

Our sidewalk between the houses, that never sees sun, is about 3/4" thick...VERY dangerous. I used up all the rest of our salt in hopes of beating the ice back before we have company in a few weeks. I will HAVE to get more salt, so NOW I have to remember to get you some too....USE IT>

I do and I will, Cindy. Promise.
