Have been a bit… hard to explain. So I won’t try.
I’m still out and about — kind of. Today I thought I’d give walking a shot and I must have forgotten how because I promptly fell flat on my face (well, I stopped before my face hit the ground, but it was a nasty fall). I don’t bounce back from these things like I used to so I kinda just sat in the middle of the sidewalk for a good five minutes trying to get up enough umph to get on my feet again. My poor husband stood by feeling helpless and upset because what could he do? Nothing. Poor guy. Luckily, nothing broke but my dignity. I’m just a little scraped up and achy. Okay, a lot achy. I’m getting too old to be falling like that. ^_^
That wasn’t fun.
It didn’t help that my graceful fall was witness by someone else who had himself fallen in that very area of the town. He urged me to go to the Urgent Care clinic, but I don’t think that I hurt myself that badly. He claimed to be younger than me, but looked a good decade older. But he was nice and waited until I got back on my feet and could continue on my way, all the while insisting I should go to the Urgent Care clinic. Completely unnecessary, but nice of him to care. See? The world is not so uncaring after all.
In other news, the hubs has a promise of an offer for a permanent job! Yay! And it’s near where he used to work so he’s familiar with the commute. And he’ll be making about the same as he made before so we won’t be broke! Yay! I’m still waiting for my appointment with the VRD — which I talked about before. If they can’t help me, no one can. I have an appoint with them in three weeks.
In other other news, our tenant has a friend who’s between jobs, but has a contractor’s license, so we’ve been hiring him to do a lot of the things that need fixing in the yard around here. Our place isn’t looking quite so out of shape now. Soon, it might even look presentable. ^_^ Like the quaint little farm I’ve always wanted. Those trees I talked about the other day ended up on the burn pile. They’re just too plentiful around here so no one wants them. But now our back yard is looking decidedly less scraggly and more maintained. I wish I had the energy to do it myself, but hell, I can’t even walk three blocks without falling on my face…
I just hope the wildflowers I planted last year come back this year. That would be kind of awesome.
