loz : laurie

I am many things; mostly appropriate, I believe. some of you know parts of me... some of you know much of me. very few of you know all of me.

you may find the many parts of me somewhere around here, if you want to take the time to look. good luck, hahaha.

oh... but let me know if you find my pieces, please... I always seem to be searching for myself ;).

what colour energy are you?

Purple Vibes

Your Energy is Purple. You are a visionary with unmatched intuition and spiritual consciousness. The mystical world and unexplainable forces fascinate you. There resides in you a true dignity and nobility, and others see you as a worthy leader and loyal friend. You are often very mature, with a deep understanding of human nature, and you will instinctively encourage and guide others toward their full potential.

You find it natural to express yourself aesthetically and artistically, you may be involved in the artistic professions, a religious organization, or in activities that have a degree of ceremony and ritual. You would make a good therapist, healer, psychic, or entrepreneur.

the ouch of me

hope everybody is having a nice holiday season :). so far so good, chez loz; we have company for a couple of weeks here, & it's been nice. we had a really nice Christmas day/dinner at my parents' home. we're kicking around the idea of staying in for New Year's Eve & just inviting a few friends over to ring in the New Year with us.

this afternoon I spent a few hours with my Gran. I left later than expected & by then my back door (which I'd been trying to open so I could put my laptop bag on the back seat) was frozen shut, as it had been snowing again. I decided against forcing it, put the laptop in the front seat & then brushed & scraped the car windows off before taking off.

I was on my way to pick up Bren & friends from his friend's place outside of town & suddenly my interior lights came on.... back door was obviously thawed & registering as 'open', so I figured I'd best stop & close it. pulled over, opened the door & stepped out onto the side of the road - which was so icy, I immediately fell down, landed on my left knee. I had just grabbed the bottom of the door frame & was attempting to stand up when *wham* I got whacked in the back & went down onto both knees again. not only that, but my left arm got wrenched near out of its socket - or at least, that's what it felt like - and I started sliding along. turns out the car was rolling, and it was the open door that had knocked me over again.

I realised I wasn't going to be able to get my feet under me just yet so I hung onto the door frame for dear life & just let the car drag me along until I was able to get a footing... that was about 5 feet. by the time i managed to get my feet under me & scramble back into the driver's seat, the rear end of the car was about two feet into the road; thankfully no cars coming either way.

I guess the gear shift hadn't *quite* made it into 'Park' as I'd thought it had, because once I was back in & stopping the car I could see 'Reverse' was clearly engaged. tricky thing that, but not something I'll forget to check again!

once I was back in the driver's seat & had the car pulled over safely to the side again, I took stock: my knees were screeching in pain, neck & shoulder wrenched & aching, and I thought my jeans must've been ripped through to the skin. not so, but there are now two little white patches on my knees where the colour was rubbed out by sliding 5 feet over the icy pavement. my left knee - which is the worst one, as far as the arthritis goes - took the worst of the abuse & is now purple-bruised & a bit swollen. I'm aching all up through my left arm & down into mid-back, but at least nothing worse happened... could've been run over too, if I hadn't instinctively clamped onto the door frame & hung on for the ride!

so, I'm okay but feeling rather sore in body & mind. also feeling very grateful nobody came along to witness that little occasion of self-humiliation! how embarrassing. and painful. not a situation I'd like to repeat anytime.

aside from all that, things are going okay here. I've been getting more work & life is ticking along. I'm hoping to have a good New Year's Eve as the lead-in to a great 2008.

here's hoping all of you have a great one too! happy holidays to all :). one day soon I will catch up properly here.

that is cool Marty!

thanks, I definitely needed the Reiki. I forget to do it for myself usually, but when things are *really* bad I remember. too bad I don't think of it when things are just getting bad, instead of only when things are *that* bad, heh.

on another note - I only just saw your comment here, after posting another entry. blogdrive is not automatically updating or something. biz as usual, I suppose.

Ouch! Oh, Loz, that sounds awful! Perhaps the Reiki master could use a little Reiki herself. Oh, my. Oh, by the way, have I ever mentioned that Donna is also trained in Reiki? Cool, eh ... small world ...

best wishes--M.

hey Brandy :). thanks, and yes, I'm all recovered. well, my left knee is still a tad more tender than usual if prodded at, but I just don't prod at it & it's all good :).

happy new year!

January 6, 2008   12:28 PM PST
wow; I just caught up here; I hope you are recovered from this mishap!
January 5, 2008   12:59 AM PST
yup, same road, but the first accident didn't happen with the/a car so I'm not sure it's a 'pattern' yet... though obviously can't hurt to smudge even so I guess ;).

re: that doorknob, lotion & all.. um... I'm not sure if technically it's still called a massage, if you're facing the door at the time :D. but hey... you can call it whatever you want! teehee ;).

January 3, 2008   08:07 PM PST
same road huh "little one?" (hehe) Sounds like kharma says don't use that road anymore or maybe it's time to sage the car maybe with a bit of sweetgrass to be safe? Sorry, old habits die hard. ANYway, gotta say harumph to you about the massage, the closest I am getting lately is to lather the doorjam with lotion and jump up and down and pretend. I am just excited about the next spinal block. What a pair we make huh? LOL
December 31, 2007   12:57 AM PST
hehe, thanks Ma ;).

yes, I am thankful it wasn't worse; I could've run myself over if I hadn't managed to hang on for the ride.

on the plus side, I got to another massage therapy appointment that much sooner because of this and I'm feeling pretty good right about now. so no worries - I got off easy this time :).

strangely enough, this happened on the same road where I was hit by the pickup truck (though different location up the road a ways); I'm starting to think that road ain't very good luck for me ;).

hope you've been enjoying the holidays!

OMG!!! i take it, it would sound stupid to say "do you know how lucky you are something else worse didn't happen?" running over your own foot when you didnt put the car stickshift in gear? damn manuals. I am sooo happy your are okay and wish you were not in such pain, I feel for ya Darlin, take care of yourself!!! be gentle with YOU!!! From what I understand you are in as good of shape as I am!!!! Don't do that silly!!!! Wow can you tell I'm a Mom?
