A Brief Break

I’d been cranking out ideas (well, writing them down here at home – putting them out on my blog bit by bit) pretty furiously for the past few weeks, feeling that at some point I’d have to slow down.

The slowdown was me falling 3 times on my shoulder at the Hyland Ski & Snowboard area. OUCH!

I didn’t break anything, nothing permanent, just banged up a bit. Sore. It’s been hard to sleep for the past 2 days so I’ve been resting all day, sleeping when I can, and that means not a lot of designing or writing is going on.

I’m not knitting right now because my shoulder’s just painful enough that the repetition is annoying. I’d rather let it get a good rest in. But I did do the Wii today – hula hoop and advanced step – and, I’m ashamed to admit it – the Wii skiing. It’s a good way to work up a glow without going to the effort of getting dressed when I feel like poopy.

So I’ll be back in a day or so with more updates on History on Two Needles, and also on new info on teaching dates and other fun stuff. In the mean time I’m going to try to sleep a bit, and I’m going to cash in a gift certificate for a massage to further the healing process.

I’m supposed to have skiing lesson #2 on Sunday and I’m hoping to feel both well and BRAVE enough to continue. Gerry did amazingly well at his lesson – we had an instructor who works with handicapped folks and he was very good with us, going very slowly. My big problem is I can’t seem to stop (yeah, that’s problematic – ) but Gerry did well with all aspects.

We don’t honestly think that either of us will make it off the bunny hill – Gerry’s scared and I’m just too slow – but even getting ON the skiis, going up a little mini-lift and coming down a bunny hill is the fulfillment of a dream for both of us. Silly how much a small thing like that means.

Without meaning to we’ve come up with a new slogan for this segment of our lives: Life; if you’re not going to live it, why bother?
