I didn't wish everybody a happy holiday season but when you hear my story, I hope you will understand.
Two weeks before Christmas, I took a nasty spill on an uneven brick walkway and went straight down. Broke my thumb, bruised my face and glasses and knees. They did a cat scan of my head and didn't see a problem but five days in, I suffered a dizzy spell. So I started to rest more and that didn't happen again but decided not to travel to visit the kids and grandkids and took it easy. Having a cast on my dominant hand was a bummer just trying to button shirt or tie shoes or write.
The only consolation was that with me being home, my good girl found flights and came last Friday and spent the weekend. Neighbors invited us over for Christmas dinner and she was worried she would slip up and call me Sir. To questions of how we met, she decided we would say we met on a writing blog. Vanilla types wouldn't understand our story. As it turned out, somebody asked and she said online and they didn't ask further questions.
Cuddling also isn't easy with a cast on my hand but I did manage spanking with my left hand.
To cap the weekend, one of my presents was a snowglobe since she connects them. Neither of us dreamed TSA wouldn't let her bring it on board so she had to go back and check her bag and barely made the flight. I get so tired of the TSA. You are more likely to get hit by lightning than be hit by a terrorist attack but enough of that rant. FDR said we have nothing to fear but fear itself but now we seem to fear everything. OK, for a second time, enough of that rant.
But I don't want this to sound like a pity party. I have many blessings and it was nice to spend the holiday with my good girl. And I see the doctor Wednesday for an update.
And my good girl will be back Friday for New Year's. That was planned all along.
And I hope Christmas was happy and healthy for all the bloggers. And that 2017 gets off to a better start than the end of 2016 even though Jan. 20 will be a depressing day.
And one of my blessings is to be part of this supportive community of likeminded folks.
