Treat everyday as a new adventure

Always Trying To Catch Up!

Last week I felt like I was ahead of the game. Posting reviews and catching up on reading. (Not so much on writing, but more about that later. )

And then my dad fell. He was done shopping and had pushed his basket out to the car, grabbed his bags, and in a hurry, as usual, he tripped over the curb.

A Big Thank You to the customers in the parking lot who came to his aid and called the EMT’s.

The ambulance whisked him away to the hospital and he has a fractured collarbone.

He’s in a sling and in pain, but his mood is good and I think, no wait, I know, he loves all the extra attention.

So hang in there with me and I’ll take every day as it comes and keep you updated. I do have a few draft posts that I can share and hopefully will get all my reading done. And maybe, just maybe, this is a good time to catch up on my writing. There just might be a story hidden in all of this. 🙂

Till then, Big HUGS to all of you!

    Hugs back to you, wishing your dad a speedy recovery!


    • Hi Lainey and thank you. If it’s anything like when he broke his hip and had to have hip replacement surgery…8 weeks after his surgery the doctor told him he could start driving again. And my dad jumped in the car and drove up to Washington. (We live in southern CA) Guess the saying is true; “You can’t keep a good man down”


      • Lainey

        Wow! That’s amazing, he sounds awesome (and possibly a tiny bit stubborn…lol!)


      • Very stubborn! HAHA. Hard to believe he’s 90


  2. I’m just glad he’s on the mend 🙂

    • Thank you, Anna. It’s so hard worrying about a parent. Almost as bad as when you worry about your kids. 🙂 And my dad is almost as bad as a kid, thinking he’s invincible.


  3. I couldn’t catch up to you if I tried. Hope your Dad is better


  4. Sorry to hear. Wishing you strength and a quick recovery for Dad.


  5. Hi Karen! I’m so sorry about your dad’s injury. I hope that he makes a full recovery in good time. Wishing him all the very best.
