Fell Again

Tuesday, October 09, 2012

I went with a Senior group to have Kurdish food at Banbanis. We ate family style meaning we shared all the various dishes. There was 2 salads, 3 kinds of soup. 6 entrees, and dessert. It was all fantastic. On the way home I was half a block from home and the roads and sidewalks are all torn up. I couldn't go the way I was and theres a spot in the middle of the road that was taped to walk on. So I stepped over the curb into wet sand because it had rained. There was a 2nd curb and I tried to step over it but fell forward onto cement covered with wet sand. I landed on the opposite knee from the last time I fell. I couldn't get up and asked a man going by to help me up. By that time I was covered in wet sand. I came home and took a nap.

I went on a Mystery Trip with the Senior Group today. A Rich and Famous trip. I was so lucky Rachel and Aria took me to Bethesda. We started the trip on Summit Ave here in St Paul where lots of rich people built huge houses including the Govenor's Mansion. Then to Minneapolis to Boom Island for a cruise on the Mississippi where lunch was served. Back to St Paul to Central High School which has two flights of cement steps to get to the second floor. I took an elevator up but since this was a Seniors trip there was lots that used the elevator so on the way down I decided I could do the stairs. About the 2nd or 3rd step from bottom I fell. I held onto the bannister with my left hand and swung across the cement at the bottom with with right knee and side. A girl offered to help me up and of course I said no I'm fine. Then another girl offered and I realized I wasn't fine. So they were trying to budge me and a boy helped from the front and two from the back. They did get me up and the girls helped me to the bus. I did think one of the three leaders should have come and checked on me. Thankfully Dawn picked me up from Bethesda and even went into the library to pck up 4 books that were ready.

    Things like that happen when we least expect it . Glad to hear that nothing is broken and the soremess and bruising can begin to heal. It does surprise me that the people in charge didn't seem interested. Seems to me that would be a way to evaluated places to go on field trips and what the possibilities of seniors having difficulty manuvering steps do to depth or constuction of stairways.

Lots of Produce

Tuesday, September 04, 2012

I'm so lucky. Lori sent lots of tomatoes, peppers, and even cut up watermelon, honeydew, and muskmelon. Bailey went and got it from Gary's work and delivered it to me. She got some too. The elevators weren't working so I had to carry my cart down the 4 flights. Bailey said I looked like I wasn't going to make it. I could barely breath. I went to the freight elevator and keep trying until it finally came. My whole body was soaked.

Difficulty Getting to Chorus Concert

Wednesday, August 01, 2012

The Senior chorus had a concert yesterday on the other side of downtown. Since there was no van and I'd been there several times before so was sure I could get there. I decided to walk through the skyway out of the sun. I took some wrong turns and ended 5 blocks east of where I wanted to go. So I went outside and ended up 4 blocks north of where I wanted to go. There were some streets I couldn't get across because of the light rail construction. I was so hot and tired I decided I'd just go home when I saw the street I needed. It' only two blocks long. I left home at 1 and got there at 2:10. They had started but I joined them. The leader said afterwards I was still red in the face but only half as bad as before. They gave us cupcakes, icecream, and lemonade. I could just feel my energy coming back. I walked outside home and only took half an hour.

Ready for Concert

Monday, July 30, 2012

I left my song book at the Passport office after practice on my way to catch the van to go to Vampire. I went over and got it right away this morning. I was missing two songs and we got a list we are supposed to hand it. I got it all organized. I'm ready for the concert tomorrow.
