Good morning and happy Monday!  And how was your weekend? Mine was spent doing absolutely nothing, or at least as little as possible. I didn’t even get dressed!

Lest you think that I’m a complete sloth, let me explain.  On Friday morning I was making my way to work, actually, I was running to catch a bus when I tripped over my own two feet on an uneven cobblestone and while doing my best Superman imitation

I came down hard. Really hard.  Anyway, to make a long story short (especially since I’m typing this with one hand), Grace Alice* landed herself in the Emergency Room. Miraculously, nothing was broken, but I did manage to severely sprain my left shoulder (good thing I’m right handed! See? Could have been worse!), along with a plethora of assorted contusions, bruises and scrapes. I’m now in a sling for at least a week. Yay! (When it’s 87 and humid you want your arm wrapped in a polyester blanket.)

So, after more than a little screaming and tears, I managed to get undressed and into something manageable on Friday and did not attempt to perform this feat of strength and agility again.  I spent the next two days doing nothing other than enjoying the delicious effects of some quality muscle relaxers and ordering take-out.

Unfortunately, I did have to endeavor to put on clothes and appear somewhat presentable for work this morning. I wouldn’t have if a. I wasn’t taking some time off next week and b. I’d managed to master the new version of our software so that I could work from home. A harsh yet motivational lesson learned, but I digress. I have to say that there was slightly less pain and yelling involved in today’s performance, so that’s progress, right?

Have a great week! See you back here same bat time, same bat channel!
