N'awlins at heart

They came back.

The aliens came back for round two. I guess they weren't finished.

Lots of things have happened since we last spoke. I was able to get out of the work Christmas Party along with Hannah's. Who knew it would be this easy. And the bike didn't take much of a beating. I just wish my femur was made by Honda.

Recovery is going well. I noticed today it almost feels like I could walk on it. Don't worry, I know I can't and I'm definitely not going to try, but it feels a whole lot better than it did. For the record it was a bad miscalculation / decision on my part that caused the accident. I know what I did wrong, but it won't help for me to sit around and beat myself up so I'm not going to. The ambulance ride, I must say, was far from fun. I felt every bump.

In the emergency room I could hear the girl in the next room screaming. She kept saying "You're breaking my jaw!". I thought it was weird that someone with a broken jaw was so audible and easy to understand. I mean every word. There was no guessing what she was saying. I was wondering if they were wiring it shut or what.

I got 2 new xbox 360 games for my birthday which have drastically slowed down my "working from home". I'm getting a bit of time in but not as much any more. Friday was my birthday so I decided I wasn't going to check my work email at all the whole day. So of course I noticed this morning my manager emailed me Friday and said "Happy Birthday. I'd like to give you a call today if that is okay with you. Let me know what time would be good.". Ooops. My bad.

Mom is in town helping out and we've watched quite a bit of Animal Planet in HD and some Forensic Files. Not a bad visit and it's nice having her around helping me out. Thanks for giving her up for a while dad. :) She's been doing a lot around here including cooking. I think I've already gained 20 lbs. Good thing my crutches say "Max Weight Cap 650 Lbs" because I'm working my way up to it. (But I'm almost out of Vanilla Tootsie Rolls. Thanks Patti. *hugs*) Those crutches are heavy too. They must weigh 40 Lbs each. (Okay, a little exaggeration but those bad boys are heavy.)

I'd like to thank everyone for coming to visit and all the well wishes and prayers. I am definitely mending well. And I really don't believe the shot in the stomach every morning is for blood clots. I think it's a reminder to not screw up again!

Well it's late so i guess I'm off to bed. Have a good night everyone!
