August 27th, 2005

I slept in until 10:30 am. Hmm, yummy...that's all I can say. I feel like a million dollars today. Although I am still as clutzy as ever. I forgot to mention that yesterday I did the following:
1. ran into a cupboard 2. dropped and broke a bottle of nail polish 3. accidently slammed the oven door and sent everything on the back of the oven sailing onto the counter 4. dropped my make up bag and exploded eyeshadow everywhere 5. fell down the stairs 6. hit my elbow like 5 times.
I think that I am getting used to being back in "checks and balances" with my equilibrium and sense of depth perception. I feel like I need some goalie pants and a helmet. (You can laugh, it's VERY funny.) Today I dropped a bottle of foundation, took out a row of books at borders and tripped a couple of times. I feel like a I should have a warning label somewhere on my forehead. On an even funnier note: I went shopping today with my friends Robin and Crissy. We were picking up a gift for another friend and stopped at Don Pablo's for lunch. They were offering Carnitas on special for $9.99. They sounded awesome and not much food does these days, so I ordered them. She then asks me if I want chicken, pork, or steak? I asked her if this was a trick question. I always thought Carnitas was pork, but I said ok, I guess I'll take the pork-pork. She laughed. My dogs were a little more sore from walking today, but I didn't care. I was up, dressed, had full make up and was out of the house. I even threw a little styling in the hair for the first time in 3 weeks. I stayed up until midnight tonight lauging with some friends as they played poker together. I knitted and relaxed, but it was a blast. It feels so good to feel so much better and it shows in my face now. Ah, the things we take for granted.

Thanks so much for the kind words. I do what I do to keep my head on straight and to blaze a path for those who are lost in medical terms and frustration. It helps me so I figure it may help others, too :o) I'll keep tabs on you, too!

A nail posish bottle broke!? No way! Thats a major accomplishment really! I didn't even know you could break one! LOL.

It does INDEED happen. I might point out that it was white nail polish and I have white tile so in some aspects. I lucked out on that one and BIG time considering I was nearly out of remover!
