Back at Amazon

I've been putting it off for much too long. I actually like online shopping - for the fun things, but, BUT, I hate shopping online or in a store for household items. I can't believe the prices, I feel like Rip Van Winkle. Today, I had to force myself to let my fingers do the shopping for some necessary sheets - I had put my foot through the bottom sheet.

Have any of you priced sheets lately? If not, hang onto something when you do. You know, it's only about a year ago when we bought my bed, I remember looking at sheets at the time and decided I would make do with what I had. How wrong can a person be? The prices are noticeably more now. (I'm understanding now, why DH bought skeleton sheets for his big bed)

I shopped until my back and delicate parts ached so bad, I ended up getting 2 cheap sets of questionable fiber content. At least my foot won't get hung up and I didn't have to pay $40 for clearance kiddie sheets. Sigh ... 

I will say one thing about shopping at Amazon - their gadget for narrowing down your preferences simply doesn't work for spit! I type in cotton full-sized sheet set and it shows up nearly any size or fiber content. It takes a long time to wade through all that stuff. 

I'm doing some better, I have no idea how long it takes these things to feel normal again. Have a good day, night, or whatever and  ... take care!

Living up to "Grace"

For a few years now I have been worried about falling. My balance isn't what you could call good. All this time though, of bouncing off the door trim/walls and catching myself, I hadn't fallen. Until the other night ...

Tacky wanted to be fed, and as usual, I filled her cup with cat food and made my way through the storm door, avoiding stepping on my o2 tube. I put the food in her dish, turned around and she was still loving on me. I opened the storm door, my tube got hung around the cat, and as I lifted my foot to go through the door - I didn't! I landed square on my dignity. 

At first all I felt was my throbbing finger, my foot, and my back. I had slammed into the storm door with my back, it felt as if someone slammed me with a 2x4. It hurt every time I breathed in. I figured if I went to the doctor, they would tape me - seeing that I can't stand a bra because of my breathing, I opted out of that idea. I called DH and he came home. I never would have made it up into my bed without him. 

In the morning, I found out that it was my coccyx I landed on and not just my dignity. Everything went into sympathy mode and I felt like I had whiplash. I felt like I had been in a bad wreck. 

It's getting better, thanks for the well wishes! I can sit now, but I wish I had one of those donuts. ;-) My foot and finger are fine. Been using Aspercream, which helps my back and other painful areas. I informed DH that he can feed the cat from now on.

MIB

Missing in Blogland ...

Last night:
Wouldn't you know it? Playing (not really) with the cat, her food, and my bleep tube and trying to get her food outside in her dish - - - - Lost my balance, landed on my butt, hitting my back on the storm door, jammed my finger, hit my foot on the threshold I guess and landed on the porch floor. I don't think anything is broke, but I imagine I will have a few bruises tomorrow. I called Bobby, he's going to come home and look at my back and help me into bed - a chore I'm not looking forward to. May have cracked a rib, but probably is just bruised from the jolt.

This morning:
Feel like I was hit by a truck from my bottom to the top of my neck. Can't sit at my computer.

Back later ...
