HoHum

I'm still home due to my careless fall down the stairs on Monday. And let me tell you-I. AM. BORED. I planned on going to work this morning however when I woke up, I was SUPER drugged. Before bed I take 1 pain pill and 1 muscle relaxer and I guess because I haven't had to get up early for work (and therefore been able to sleep it off) I didn't realize how zonked it makes me. Tonight I won't take the pain pill. In fact, I think I'm done with them all together now.

I'm not in nearly as much pain as I was the last couple of days. I am still bruised and sitting up strait does put a strain on things, but I feel better. My shoulders still hurt a lot, but no more than they usually do when my back gets out of whack. I'm going to the chiropractor yet again today, so hopefully this crack will get it back in shape and I'll be on my way to really healing.

I feel so lazy and gross. I've been just sitting around for days. It's horrible. I was really looking forward to going back to the gym on Monday too. Maybe by this coming Monday I'll be able to go. I'm going to try it anyway. I've got to get back into my routine and back into losing weight. I'm not done and I lost momentum after I moved in here. Gotta get moving.

I applied for a refinance on my car loan and was approved. I drive a Saturn and the bank asked me this information on the application. They approved me for the full amount at a certain (good) rate and I was psyched. Then I talked to them and they said that b/c it's a Saturn they'll only give me $9K. Um....why? It's not like I told you I drove something else on the application. I'm so bummed. I was really excited about having an extra $25-$75 a month to pay off my other bills. I'm so confused about it too-oh well...I guess I'll just keep plugging along with what I have.

Most of my debt will be paid off by May. I don't have much debt, but I do have a few medical bills I'm paying and a Target credit card. I paid off one credit card last week already and that feels pretty good. I've also opened up a higher interest savings account and though that won't give me a huge yield, it's better than having the money accrue nothing. After my bills are paid, I'll talk to a financial planner to see how and where I can invest my money. I don't want to live like this forever. I have plans-travel, family, house, cafe...I can't do those things with my current financial status and so I'm formulating a plan. Hopefully it'll work! :)

OK...off to do...nothing. Thank God I can go back to work tomorrow! (Just in time for the weekend!)

Stairs

See these?

These are the 3 medications I have to take for the next week or so because yesterday I fell head first down the stairs leading to our apartment. Luckily, nothing is broken and I didn't hit my head but the bones in my back and neck have shifted and I've bruised the muscles in my back and butt. Needless to say, I'm very, very sore.

Lucky B1 was home and he immediately took good care of me, making sure I was OK, packing me with ice and calming me down. Later, he drove me to the doctor and then to the chiropractor. And of course, he showered me with lots of love and kisses. I'm reminded daily of how lucky I am, but when this happened, I was smacked in the face with how wonderful he really, really is. There was no question-he just came over and started taking care of me. The warmth I felt inside easily made the outside feel better.

That, and the pain meds and muscle relaxers....
