“I’m Going Really Fast!!”
Okay, so the title may not make any sense but the story is really funny…thank you Amy. I’m now one of those simpletons you see driving down the street laughing to herself. Wonderful. All it takes is for me to think of that story, Kim and me saying "Mnore" (long but hilarious story) and the OBVIOUSLY drug-induced keyboard player on the Blue Rodeo DVD (Amy and I can’t have a visit without watching him over and over).
Anyways, let’s get the details over with. I’m FINALLY starting to come around. Have been going to physio and am hoping that within a week or two I’ll be able to walk upright and without pain again. My back/walking problems sorta remind me of George Orwell’s Animal Farm ("Four legs bad, 2 legs good" – only for me, it’s the opposite. Or I could just resort to the crawl thing, but I haven’t really had to partake in that since Kim and I went to Montreal for March Break 10+ years ago…and even then it was self-inflicted. *sigh* THOSE were the days!)
Alrighty, so, early Friday evening my mom and dad were arriving home from the Dominican and Cat and I had been "instructed" to meet them at home around 6:30. So, at 4 or so Amy and I met up at the Cobblestone for chatter and then from there I went to the house. I took over the couch and waited for my parents. Cat and the boy showed up around 7ish and I played with him (I didn’t move from my warm ass-groove, however, but he and I had fun) until ma and pa finally arrived. Hung out with them for a bit and then I headed out around 8:30.
I stopped into Jeff’s as I hadn’t really seen him since probably mid-September but now that he’s single again I guess he’s permitted to see his friends again. How lucky for us. Anyhoo, ran into "Ralph Wiggum" when I got there who (apparently) is now a roommate of Jeff & Keith’s. Interesting. Good to catch up and get hugs tho. So, Jeff and I vegged out on the couch, chatted and watched Bridget Jones 2 on TV. When it ended I headed home. Figured I should come home and feed Winston.
Saturday I got to sleep in…it was GOOD! Amy and I met up at Books Galore in Coldbrook and did some browsing. Then we hit Walmart and eventually we made our way back to my car. From there I stopped in to visit with Heather’s parents, who I haven’t seen since just before Christmas. It was a nice visit. Caught them up and got caught up. And even made plans with Jim, Heather’s brother, not Cuddy :P, to get working on a little massage therapy. I suppose it can’t hurt. Actually, that’s bullshit! The last time I had a massage (for medical purposes, as well) I ended up with a neck injury and couldn’t move my head for 3 weeks. See? Things on me break easily. Left the Boyd’s and came home. Steve came over in the evening and we chilled and eventually we put on a movie. He picked out "Jaws’ which I was more then happy with. And finally, I hit the sack.
Sunday (today) I got to sleep in again! Whoot! Winston let me sleep till almost noon. It was a little ridiculous. I NEVER sleep that late…the little effer usually sits outside the door and scratches and whines at 8am. I enjoyed my rest tho. Mmm. Amy and I met up around 3 for coffee in Coldbrook and then I went to my parents for dinner and then back home. I did stop in to visit with Kim M. on the way home but she was busy with Miss Mallory so I had to take a raincheck. I did a little bit of work this evening, since I’m gonna be late tomorrow 😀 Trying to be a good employee *rolls eyes* Whatever. And pretty much, that’s it. I slept too long today to make anything of it.
Next week is looking good for fun already. Amy and I have some good plans for Saturday.
Wednesday is gonna be busy w/physio and doctor appointments (but I finally get to go back to the surgeon…wonder if he’ll ask me to drop my pants again. He’ll have to get me drunk first (or AT LEAST buy me dinner). Will let you all know when the leg’s comin’ off.
Have a great week….leave me comments dammit…I’m gonna attempt to put in a full week (minus the appts.) and will require some decent literature for sanity purposes.
PS – Is it wrong that I had a dream this morning of Greg Keelor aka homeless Greg circa 1993 last night? Does this mean I’m cheating on Jim. Lol.
