I took a day off yesterday and after waking at 7 to wake Bennett up and hurry him along to school, I went back to bed and slept until 11:15 - I really must have needed that sleep. After that I felt normal, and no longer wanted to shed water from my eyes. Good news!
I had to sneak out at 2:30 (I say sneak because it always feels naughty if you go out when you have taken a day off school) to get a birthday present for my nephew. In the madness of the last week I had not had a chance to buy him one. I knew what I had to get him so I was only out for 20mins. I also bought the most amazing chocolate cake from Moore Wilsons for him. We planned to go over to my nephew's place later in the afternoon to give him the present and cake. But then the stairs at my house had other ideas for my day.
The stairs at my house have already been nasty - some might remember when Louise had a broken arm a couple of years ago - I have been up and down these stairs hundreds of times in the last year and a half and never have I had any problems. But yesterday evening when stairs met socks things went bad. I slipped backwards, fell onto the stairs on my hips and arm and then proceeded to slide down 4 or 5 stairs on my hips.
I am feeling very sore today. Not quite the way I was hoping I would feel going back to school today. Although I am physically sore, I am no longer mentally sore so I think it will all be okay.
