Day #9

So much for planning…
Yesterday afternoon I had what I considered a great topic for today’s post. Here’s where things get interesting.
Another of the “ gifts “ Parkinson’s has is related to sleep patterns. Vivid dreams and nightmares are a common thing that many experience along with thrashing around and sometimes even falling out of bed! Well my friends last night was my turn.
The dream part occurred when bizarre dreams began and then escalated to finding myself on the floor… Thankfully I didn’t hit my head but both elbows, hands and tail bone took a good hit. The left elbow has a small laceration. As I’m laying there assessing the damage the song from a Jeff Bridges movie comes into my head. The line, “ Funny how Falling feels like Flying only for a little while “ keeps playing over and over!
I pulled myself up and with as much dignity as I could muster, shuffled out to get coffee and read the paper.
Returning from my daily routine of walking and still taking stock of what hurt, out to the kitchen for my smoothie I went all the while trying to put last night’s debacle in perspective.
I unlocked my studio…went inside and put my smoothie on the desk. Unbeknownst to me there was a small pen exactly where I placed my cup and…you guessed it…the contents of my fruit smoothie were now on the desk…floor…a couple of Amps and a guitar! As I stood there trying to decide whether to laugh or cry, Karen came out inquiring what I was doing on my hands and knees and I burst out laughing 😂
She helped me clean up the sticky mess of blueberries and assorted other fruits and I decided to make my great idea another day.
To put it in perspective, here’s what was left of said smoothie.
The moral of the story is “ Roll with the changes “ sorry REO😎🎶
