The Weekend Has Arrived


The weekend has finally arrived.  Woo hoo!  Apparently we have church only tomorrow and not Sunday because there is a transportation issue going on once again.  My friends who pick me up for church on Sundays have a rental car until further notice and there is a broken seat belt, and my friends have protection.  So next week I will have to see about SW and her husband to take me with them,  My other friends do not foresee another car outside their rental for a while.  Anyway, that is okay with me.  I have other things to do this weekend that I can do anyway.  I plan to go to church tomorrow.

I have done something that I believe would have been somewhat of a shock and yet something to laugh about later but NOT at the time it happened.  My desk chair has decided to dump me out of it forward and I was sitting in semi-midair when it happened.  I was stuck in the chair when it tipped forward with my legs straight and I could not even move the chair.  I had to wiggle my bottom out of the chair.  Don’t worry.  I was able to get up with power that I mustered from within me and got to my feet within fifteen minutes or so.  I was also able to get the desk chair back on its wheels and allowed Bing to sit in the chair for the rest of the day.

I had an appointment and while i was out and about I have decided to take time to move the desk chair back to the living room for a couple of days and get back into the program on Monday.  With my body a little stiff for some reason or another and not stiff from the fall or even more stiff from my fall, I will take it easy this weekend and just go to church tomorrow.  I won’t have a shower until Sunday afternoon at 2 PM so  will take advantage of relaxing.  I will have more thoughts tomorrow.  I have to get to bed early tonight.

Tipped Forward

I can not lie about being tipped forward.  I was rolling my desk chair towards the bathroom because Bing Crosby the cat and I always fight for the desk chair once I get out of it, LOL…  As I was rolling towards the bathroom, the chair must have hit a cord on the floor and all of a sudden I had lost all ability to prevent from tipping over or in this case tipping forward.  After I tipped forward I had found myself in midair because the chair had not dumped me out completely.  I was stuck in the chair.  I did find myself thinking of what to do and one of those things was how was I going to get out of the chair!  I had to wiggle my bottom out of the chair and once I did, the chair moved backwards a bit and my bottom landed on the floor and my head bumped the seat of the chair instead of the floor thank goodness.  I then laid on the floor on my back, I looked up at the ceiling of my apartment wondering how I was going to get up into sitting position as heavy as I am at over 200 lbs.  I had to do something one way or another because I did not have my phone with me and the chair was still in the way of my sliding to the table where the phone was.  I have an appointment at 2:30 PM and my ride was picking me up within the hour so I had time to get off the floor and back on my feet.  I have to do something for myself for the first time in a long time without assistance.  I have to do something by myself since we no longer have emergency pull cords.  I finally mustered the strength to put myself in siting position by doing some sit ups and grabbing the bathroom door jamb on the left side until I got into sitting position.  By that time I had found myself breathing as if I worked out.  I sat there for a few seconds or minutes wondering how I was going to get up on my feet since my knees do not like hard flooring or the carpet in my apartment.  The carpet being indoor-outdoor carpeting has made it rough feeling but easy to clean stains and such.  It is easy to vacuum (or broom when necessary) most of the time.  After scooting my bottom toward the toilet I had decided to grab the toilet seat and put my weight towards my left side which is the strongest and that was on the wastebasket I put my disposable underwear in and other trash that is not recyclables.  After I got up far enough, using my left knee to push up on, I grabbed the bar on the wall and pulled my 200+ pounds up to my feet.  I was shaking when I got to my feet but I managed.
