|Selfie taken on moments before my fall on the ice that changed my life|
One question that has been resolved since my accident of February 18th, did I still want to continue working?
Now since I haven't been back to work on that fateful day I have the answer . . . YES!
The picture at the beginning of this blog was taken only minutes before I left work. I took a selfie in the men's room. About five minutes later I was closing up the Inn by locking the doors. When I rounded the corner my foot stepped on a frozen mound of ice from the rain spout and, after trying to catch my balance, I went down on my left knee severing my quadricep ligaments.

But folks, each day I'm a little better. Still can't life my lower leg but I'm feeling "something" going on below the knee. I hope it's not just my wishful imagination.
Anyway, I started out this blog by stating I miss work. I do miss work especially on a Wednesdays and Thursdays, my regular shift from 3 PM to 11 PM. And especially springtime when the days are longer.
There were times in the past when I wondered "Do I still want to work?" Well, that question has been answered now since my forced immobility . . . . .
