I WILL make it!

I'm sure everyone is wondering where I've been... Under strict orders from the hubby, I was recouperating from my fall. The strict orders came when I thought I was well enough to get some work (computer and offline work) done and set myself back a week. Holding a baby (friend's first grandchild) for an hour probably didn't help either, but what a cutie! So I've barely been at my computer for the last couple of weeks. Thank you to everyone who wished me well, I'm almost there. Still have some twinges when I actually attempt to do to much (like laundry) but I have to get things done as I'm moving down to the trailer this weekend. We brought down a bunch of stuff last weekend, but there are odds and ends that still need to be dealt with.

I still haven't done any work really since the fall. A couple of link fixes that needed to be done, but that's about it. I'm probably not going to get much done this week either, but next week with no distractions, it's back to work I go.. Hopefully I'll be almost 100% because while my desk chair is very comfy when I'm healthy, it's been VERY uncomfortable since I fell. If worse comes to worse I'll work from the lazyboy ;)

So that's been my exciting life in a nutshell. Oh, and unless I forgot something, my income for April was just slightly over $150. Depressing, but this month is going quite a bit better, and I'm on track to get an Adsense check in June for April/May, since I didn't make enough in April. Here's to everyone having a better May!

Since I last posted

Well, got quite a bit done on Monday and Tuesday last week. Wednesday was a slacker day, but I was determined Thursday to get a bunch more done. That didn't happen though. What DID happen was on my way to my computer (after stopping for my 1st coffee of the day) I slipped a la cartoon (banana peel style, legs in the air, etc) on my basement stairs. Bounced a couple times and landed with my upper back and tail bone on the edge of 2 steps. Wind completely knocked out of me. Took about 2 full minutes to be able to breathe again and then the pain kicked in... Suffice to say that for about 5 days, breathing/talking/walking/sitting/moving/lying down/lifting/bending and all round being alive was no fun. To put it mildly. However, I'm now on a full night's sleep (couldn't sleep for very long from the pain for the first few days) so I'm on the mend. And that means (hopefully) I'll be able to get some work done again! Word to the wise - DON'T fall down the stairs! If you do, take 4 Excedrin Migraine pills, they helped alot. Just don't expect to sleep as they contain 65mg of caffeine each ;)

So, on the agenda this week (besides packing up for the trailer) is go through my links for the 2 pet sites as they are finally seeing a small trickle of SE traffic. Get some link exchanges done for them, but only quality ones. Write more for the new site, which I'm dying to get out of the way. Try not to fall down the stairs again (so far so good). Figure out how we're going to buy new trailer I want to buy. (new to us, but not brand new) And so on.. lol

I guess that's about it for now. Still a little tired and out of it, so while I'm sure there's more to tell, can't think of it right now. Have a great week!
