On Slob Me:

I have learned I am a slob when I’m laid up. Clean up from my ‘sit and heal my bumps and bruises’ has taken me all day yesterday. That and the piles of dirty dishes and laundry. I didn’t even turn on my computer yesterday. Admittedly, I’m still slow going since my fall. But that is no excuse.

This little corner of my world was centered on my chair in front of my Wii game. There was a litter and left over pile, a mess ring around it.

It looked like a poorly maintained frat house zone.

Mountain Man was not doing his regular clean up for and around me this time because he was on sick dog duty. So I got to see just how much of a slob I am when I‘m not mobile.

The last of the scabs have come off of my nose, after my kissing the concrete floor. My knee is doing much better and I’m now able to walk /stand for up to fifteen minutes at a time.

The only part of me that still looks bad is my scrapped shin. It is still red and bruised and scabby.

Its not like I sat and did nothing all day. I just didn’t do it in my laid up zone where I just plopped my sad self. I propped up my knee on pillows, played video games and ate milk shakes to my hearts content.

So, I’ll have to change my approach to my personal healthcare. I can’t be a slob when I’m laid up, just because I have gotten away with it in the past.

I definitely know what that's like. When I'm sick I get soooo lazy. It can be a good thing, though! Resting is definitely good for you after your fall. I hope you feel much better very soon!
