Progress on the healing front is starting to happen.
I made it to IKEA yesterday and was glad that I did. Sure there were plenty of attractive women shopping there, one even looked as if she were going to talk to me before turning and walking away. LOL! I’m glad that I got to IKEA because to my great surprise they were nearly sold out, or moved a shitload of stock to a place in the store I never found, of one of the two items I was there to buy for my new work area at “XYZ Corp”. In total the two items cost $5 so I was not about to try and get the new company to buy them for me. I ambled around IKEA using one crutch, and got more walking distance in than I had bargained because I had to backtrack to get a third item, something that I had forgotten to look for until I was nearly at the register.
From IKEA I drove back toward the ITP Estate, stopping at Kroger to pick up a few necessities for last night’s dinner. I left the crutch in the M6 and tooled around by pushing a shopping cart.
Dinner last night was the resurrection, appropriate for Easter Monday, of a dish that I last made in April 2016 (where does the time go?), Slow-Cooker Curry Cashew Chicken. The version I made this year was better for two reasons:
- I made it for only me, so I didn’t have to buy as much for the recipe as I did last year
- I didn’t drop my knife into the ceramic insert of my Crockpot and crack it like I did last year
Along with the pork I made on Sunday I now have leftovers to eat for the next four days…
Once I arrived home I ditched the crutches for the rest of the night. I hobbled around with some pain, but I am stubborn and want to walk again as soon as possible. I’ve also give up on taking pain killers, so I am hoping that the pain in my chest, upper left-hand side near my breastplate is also deep bruising that I am now feeling due to the lack of pain meds. The fall occurred on the left side, with me landing on my hip, arm/elbow, and shoulder so pain and bruising should not be unexpected. Stay tuned.
Buck Up, I-20, Buck Up
I said “Buck up, not buckle up”! Oh man, not one but two incidents closing interstates in the Atlanta area yesterday?
I finally figured it out! I heard that Trump will be in Atlanta next week to speak at an NRA convention so we are trying to destroy our infrastructure so that he cannot get around. The only problem is that he’ll most likely land at Dobbins and we’ve yet to make I-75 southbound impassable.
Back To The Corp, Back To German Class
When you read this, assuming you are reading this on Tuesday April 18th, I am at one of three places:
- at “XYZ Corp” trying to become a valuable employee
- at Dr Royster’s office getting my injury evaluated
- in German class at the Goethe Zentrum in Colony Square
Even though I had the entire day yesterday to study German I only managed to get a few hours of work in toward the end of the night. Slacker!
May your Tuesday be happy.
