February 19, 2013 Tuesday Afternoon

Some days you wish you could just start over.

Got up this morning at 6:30 AM.  Fed the dogs and gave Vito his shot.  Spent the morning reading the newspapers and cruising the Internet.  Left the house at 11 AM.  On my way out the door and rounding the garage, just as I was saying to myself to not slip on the ice, I slipped bad on the ice.  Falling on my right shoulder.  Funny how the first thing you do is look around to see if anyone saw you fall.  LOL.  Got myself off the ground and the snow brushed off and got in the car.  If I didn't have to leave the house today I wouldn't.  It is 10 degrees above zero with a wind chill below zero here in Milwaukee today.  Since I had to go to the southwest side of town for the MADACC meeting to free the dogs, I decided to go to Menard's right down the street to buy an electric staple gun.  Have a hand one but wanted one with more punch so I figured since my other electric one jammed and broke and I had a $20 gift certificate for Menard's, I would make the trip worth the while.  Bought the stapler and a few other items at Menard's.  Even walked around the store for ideas on my Summer projects I already am planning in my head.  Had a ton of time to kill between Menard's and the 1 PM meeting so I went to Rocky's for a slice of pizza and bread sticks.  Then sat in the car at MADACC for almost a half hour before I walked in the door at 12:45 PM to be told the meeting was canceled and rescheduled for Thursday. They said it was rescheduled because of the election today.  Yah right.  They just know how many of us are planning to show up at this meeting.  I can not go on Thursday because I have another board meeting at ARCW.  Drove home and found out after taking the stapler apart from the packaging that it does not work good and won't even put a staple in wood like the hand one can.  Repackaged it up to return it.  So now it was 2 PM, I have sore shoulder from falling on the ice, I wasted my time going to a meeting that didn't exist, and bought a stapler that now has to be returned.  Figured it was time to lay on the bed with the dogs for a while.  It is very windy today with the cold and the canopy over the bedroom window outside had been keeping us up at night and was again this afternoon as it kept flopping into the window.  About a half hour into the nap I just got up and bundled up, went outside, and got out the big ladder and put some clips on the canopy so it can not flop against the house.  At least I figure I got something accomplished now.  Making a meat loaf, mashed potato, corn and salad for supper tonight.  Will most likely spend the night watching TV and staying warm with the dogs.  Time to take a pain pill for my shoulder pain.  I have a feeling I messed up my shoulder bad.
