Oh, where to begin?  Well, by midday I was out of work early because the fire alarm get going off endlessly.  It was hard to focus and get work done with that going on in the background, even while wearing earplugs.  So my boss told me to go home.  Sweet!  I needed to return my grandfather's car to him because I borrowed it over the weekend so I could stay with my grandmother while he was in the hospital  (he's home and doing fine, nothing too major).  I got the idea that I would drive the car to his house and then run home to get my exercise in.  I was really excited to go running because the sun is out today and it's not horribly cold and I was out of work early.

So I went home and bundled up for my run.  I put on my winter running socks (ominous sign number one) and headed back downstairs (ominous sign number two).  And just near the bottom, as I was bouncing down the stairs in excitement (ominous sign number three), my feet went out from under me and I landed hard on the stairs.  Ouch!  I bruised my hand and my hip for sure.  I'm doing okay, but dang that hurt!  I took some ibuprofen and iced it for a bit.  Long story short, no run for me today.  Hopefully I can get out tomorrow.  Fingers crossed!


  1. yikes, i hope you feel better. ive fallen down a set of stairs before and the pain is pretty intense.

  2. Ouch indeed! Hope it's nothing more than some bruises.
