Falling Down and Frozen Windows

Yesterday I did end up going out and getting all the material for my curtains. On the way home I realized that I cut it really close as far as how much fabric I got. Notheless, I got my curtains for the living room all done now! I’m so happy with myself for getting so much stuff accomplished these past couple of days. I’m feeling so productive. There’s still more stuff I can do too. I have a VERY blank wall in front of my computer that I think would look nice with some Mexican things on it!

I started to downloaded Netscape yesterday. Decided I wanted something different from the usual IE scene. It took quite a while to download but I just kept it running in the background when I was doing other things and it finished this morning when I was online.

I’m in quite a bit of pain this morning. Thankfully I’m ok if I’m not moving around but yesterday I fell when I stepped down from the counter onto a chair. I’d been hanging something up on the wall in the kitchen and the chair slipped as I climbed back down. If it hadn’t been for the fact that my reflexes (which are thankfully quite decent when I need them) kicked in and I grabbed onto the kitchen sink on the way down I’d probably be in much worse shape. As it stands, I have a sore shoulder and sore muscles on my left side from stopping my fall as well as a bit of pain in my left leg/hip area. So today is going to be a take it easy day for the most part. This kind of sucks because I wanted to get the vacuuming done today but I might try and get some of it done anyway. I just have to retrieve the vacuum from the neighbours first.

I got my bedroom window stuck open last night. I’d forgotten to close it before the sun went down so all the snow and ice that had melted during the day froze up again. I stood there chiseling and blow-drying for a good amount of time before I got it closed again and damn it was cold. So I have to remember to close it while the sun is still beating down, keeping it warm and thawed.
