Remember Sunday evening when I had to do laundry as a break from schoolwork? Welllllllll. I was walking down the stairs with the laundry and the dog (cause he goes everywhere with me.. ) and I missed one step (or two, I'm not really sure) and down I went. Since I had the laundry basket I just hit my knees.. hard. And apparently my ankle got caught on one of the steps. I was literally stunned for like 2 minutes.. then I got up and walked, so I guessed I was okay. :)

We live on the 3rd floor mind you!)
Monday I went to work, got an adjustment (perks to working for a chiropractor!) and went on about my day.. UNTIL my workout after I got off. I'm halfway through day 3 of last week (yeah I know I slacked last week..) and my knee starts shooting pain and my ankle starts hurting when I apply pressure. GREAT! So I push through and then go home and kick my feet up on the couch.
Today not only did I wake up with sore knees and ankles.. BUT I also have a sore right shoulder. Almost like I slept funny cause when I turn my head left it hurts.. I walk into work and mention it to my boss.. and she said "I wondered when that would start hurting.." So I get another adjustment.. which only makes the pain worse before making it better.
All because of a simple mis-communication between my brain and the steps.. that there was in fact another step (or two!) I am now suffering like an OLD PERSON. If this is what it is like to get old (as in your body doesn't immediately recover like you are a vampire or something..) then I am just going to stay 21 forever. Deal? Deal.
Bahaha.. P.S. Don't feel sorry for me. I think it's funny I fell. :)
Oh and today I am respectfully choosing to not blog about the significance of today. Five years ago the world lost one of the most amazing Grandmothers ever. But she is always here in spirit, and for that I choose to not dwell on this day five years ago.. but to celebrate her life, each and every day.
