I’ve Got to Stop Sleeping Around
Wednesday, July 16, 2014
I can fall asleep anywhere – on the couch, in a recliner, on any padded flat surface, even on a plane if I have something or someone to lean against.
Last night I was in a spare bedroom watching a movie that DH wasn’t interested in.
I woke up in the middle of the night and promptly bashed my knee on a dresser. This room is a lot smaller than MY bedroom.
The knee feels OK, but I’ll skip running and just walk today to test it out.
Yesterday, I posted a blog about being aware of your surroundings – “Be Careful OUT there”
I should amend that to being careful ANYWHERE or at least don’t walk around in the dark.
I shouldn’t be surprised. I have an entire history of klutzy accidents that have nothing to do with running or any fitness activity.
In 2006 I tripped over a planter outside a restaurant. I was checking out the location of the “Cheesecake Factory” and not looking where I was going.
In 2011 I tripped over a step at a buffet while checking out the dessert table in the distance.
In 2012 I fell while walking down a banked driveway and looking at the “beautiful moon.”
The moral of this story: I’ve got to pay attention to what I’m doing wherever I am.
