I read this morning that Shania Twain had a fall walking on stage at the CMT awards last night. If you're familiar with country music you know that Shania is beautiful and very talented. So you're probably wondering what on earth I might have in common with her? Well, I had a fall yesterday too. I was traipsing through one of the stores at the mall when my toe caught on something and I just started lurching forward and ended up flat on my tummy. It wasn't a pretty sight. The good news is that I'm okay, nothing broken and actually something good may have come out of the embarrassing moment. I had been having severe back pain for the last few days to the point of waking through the night in discomfort. Today, the left arm hurts from trying to soften the landing and my right knee hurts to touch it, but my back feels somewhat better! As for Shania, I read that she wasn't hurt much either, but may end up auctioning off her stiletto shoes!
In other news today, I see that new research shows that sitting for long stretches at a time may be just as harmful to your health as smoking. That made an impression on me as I've been sitting too much and used to sit at work for 8 hours at a time except for an occasional break. Here's the article here if you'd like to read it. I guess we can allow ourselves to get stressed out over these health reports that pop up all too frequently and we all know that stress is not good for us either. I wonder about those who sit too much and smoke too? Okay, getting off my chair now. Time to trudge downstairs and do laundry.
Until next time...
