Glad I didn't land on my face!

Made it through a very busy week last week...hosting my daughter's in-laws. Up late and up early...was REALLY tired at the end of the week. Then there was a KH work day and service...and Sunday, a dinner invitation! Go, go,go! I have been going to my daughter's each day to help with the baby while my daughter is recovering from a difficult delivery (andchronic lack of sleep!)
We have invited a young pioneer couple to move in with us temporarily...they are struggling with finances and are considering moving back to our area if they can get enough work. They were married in this house five yrs ago! They arrived last night right about the time we got home from dinner. He started a new job today..but doesn't know yet if it is temporary of permanent. Anyway..more excitement and adjustments.
Then today..to top off everything, I drove out to my daughter's town (50 min) and stopped at the grocery before my chiropractor's app't. I was returning the cart when my ankle turned and down I went. I hung onto the cart handle so I didn't land on my face..but I pulled things all over the place...mostly in my back! Immediately took aspirin..and then made it to my chiro app't right on time (ten min after the fall). This evening, only my ankle is hurting..and I took two capsules each of Turmeric and ginger..both anti-inflamatories...and I am amazed that my ankle feels better! I expect to be sore tomorrow..but going immediately to chiro really helped avoid what could have been a lot of damage. We shall see how things feel tomorrow. I am ready to SLEEP tonight (hope I can!)
