Little did I know he was in the attic cleaning out stuff. He finally comes to my rescue and helps me up. Then I see the damage to the wardrobe. The door was split from top to bottom by then hinges. I hurt my knee, neck, head, shoulder and hand. All I can think about it how hard I have worked to get myself in better shape with my RA and I hope this does not set me back with my treatment, but I hurt so bad, I am sure it will be a setback. All I can say is don't get old folks.
After I recover, then my husband continues in the attic. He is bringing down boxes of old checks to burn and misses the wrung on the stairs and breaks the lower part of the ladder. Of course he is fine.
I am just about in tears from my acccident then I hear Doc say "Help me I have fallen and I can't get up!"He is teasing me about my fall. Well, this just brings me to the kitchen laughing so hard that I am crying. By then we are both laughing and I am just thinking that we are so old that I am glad we aren't moving ourselves. I fall about once every other week lately. Doc's comments about my falling turns to talk of getting me my own buzzer alarm and I am giving him this look.
personal safety alarm to wear around my neck? I don't think so!
What! I can't wait til I have to go up the stairs at the new home. I will probably fall up them!
That is how the morning went...
Then a friend calls me and ask me to take her to another town to pick up a bed and head board set. Because I have a pickup truck and I know she needs the help, off we go to pick up the bed. The man loads it in the truck and tied it down. Keep in mind that I drive a big truck and that I don't drive very well or back up or park this truck because it is so big. Of course, I can not turn my head because of the mishaps earlier that morning and my body hurts all over.
Off we go about three miles at 40 mph and whoomp, thud, kersplat goes the mattress out of the truck on a busy road with merging traffic. There is a king size bed in the middle of two lane of traffic with a merge lane.
The bed is larger than this one
I pull over and let my friend and her daughter out of the truck to get the mattress and have to go and turn around. Thankfully, two men stopped and helped them carry the bed out of harms way. Then these two unlikely angels help load it in the truck and really tie it down good.
Off we go again. This time much more secured than before and traveling at 40 mph. We do finally make it to her home. Of course no one is there to unload this big bed. After waiting for a while, the guys come home and unload the bed and head board into their house.
Then my friend says she will be out in a little bit to help me clean out my storage room. It is where I kept my floral supplies and vases, container, ribbons and all things floral related. I am giving her all of my things because she still caterers, makes cakes and does flowers. So we work until dark thirty. I am in so much pain right now that I can hardly move. We do make a big dent in my supplies. The rest of my stuff will go to our church garage sale.
So this is how I spent my day. When I picked my friend and her daughter up, I said to her teen- age daughter," Just think of the memories that we will make today!" We are always about making good memories. That was an understatement for sure! One day when I am even older, I can hear my friends daughter telling me about today and I probabley won't even remember it. We sure did make some memories.
A day with friends is always a great day!
