MAKE IT A GREAT DAY: Wednesday morning after the fall

Let me begin this post by stating that my fall was NOT MS-related.

It was ERMA-related.

Erma is always terrifically eager to see students arrive. She’s excited to see anyone arrive.

Tuesday afternoon, my 4:00 PM student arrived and Erma was vigilantly standing at the tall dog gate leading from the hallway to the front room where students wait. She attempted to pass me to rush into the front room but I held her back with my right leg. As I passed through the gate, Erma made an advance to come through but instead, closed the gate on my ankle causing me to lose complete balance, unsuccessfully grab hold of the standing floor fan, and finish the rest of the fall to the floor.

That was all. Fortunately, my student’s mom opened the gate to release my ankle since I was pinned entirely to the floor.

Erma, my fanatically excited Ambassador of The Haasienda.

Within a few hours I was feeling the results in my muscles and back from my twisted dance to the floor and they continue this morning. However, I think I recaptured all my lost sleep from Monday night and after feeding and pottying the dogs this morning at 7:30 AM, I returned to bed until 10:15 AM. I did release my afternoon shift at The Park to accomplish more rest.

So, we have a gorgeous Wednesday with incredible weather and sunshine. I may get some deck time in this afternoon or more napping.

Make it a great day!
