Yesterday started out fabulously as I woke up at a most civilized time of 7:03. Then came my (down)fall along with severe pain and new swelling (over old swelling that had never subsided). Sigh.

But I'd been heartened by an e-mail from Brian, thinking I'd like to have a visit from him and the bundle of goodies he'd be delivering. Oh, yes, please. Only problem is that I've already promised my Saturday to RS and Jan. So I suggested Sunday after church along with dinner. He agreed. Yippee!

Now, back to (regular) pain. I had to cook 60 beef meatballs in the microwave. But I could only do 10 at a time according to the instructions. Sigh. Ask me how much my spine was SCREAMING. But, hey, that's still normal pain.

I had no energy to watch last night's Murdoch Mysteries so recorded it. Perhaps Wednesday? And, then, I'd started nodding off which I blame entirely on the fall. If I can only concentrate on the best part, namely the anticipation of a visit from Brian this weekend, I hope to feel much better. ::crosses fingers::
How long? Well, after I woke up around 12:15 a.m., I tried to get back to regular sleep. Ha! So not happening. After tossing and turning for an hour, I got out of bed around 1:15. And stayed up. I did some writing (which was a relief, though I kept nodding off over the keyboard). Ate my primary brekkie very early and followed it with some refreshing yogurt.

At least I was outside bright and early waiting for my 8:35 minivan that was early, too. There was a very chatty passenger going in the same direction. Oh, my. Could she ever talk. But we had a riot talking. I was dropped off before 9, so decided to sit outside for 10-15 minutes to get some very fresh air. When one of my blind group buddies (a very effervescent woman) showed up, we went into the meeting room to drop off our potluck offerings. For once I had many people to chat with at my table. The potluck was terrific. I had t'other meatballs in a mushroom gravy, pasta salad, cream cheese tortilla circles (yummy), lots of fresh fruit (honeydew, cantaloupe, strawberries, pineapple) and more I can't recall (ooh, spicy Jamaican meat patty). So full, I brought half a large chocolate chip muffin home. Yum. I had way too much time to wait after the meeting, but I got home quickly while engaged in conversation with - you guessed it - my companion from earlier!

Even though I desperately wanted to go to sleep when I got in, I couldn't. I had to write. Desperation time. Luckily, I got some creative dialogue from it and managed to post it around 5. What a relief! Only then could I relax aka fall apart. Which I did, dozing off over and over and over again. Slept through most of my game shows though caught Jeopardy! via Restart. Am still feeling very zonked and not hungry at all. Perhaps some chocolate before I take my evening pain pills? And then setting the alarm to make an appointment with the eye doc in the morning. ::longs for sleep immediately::
