The good news: I went to the doctor to have my blood pressure read, and it was 130/90 on the first try, much better.
The bad news: I slipped on the ice and fell _on my tailbone_ on the way out of the clinic. Bending over hurts now. Leaning forward hurts now.
Thankfully, I'd already planned on working at home for the rest of the day - I'm glad not to have to go out and deal with this any more. If only people would shovel their sidewalks as a matter of routine, we wouldn't get four inches of ice built up. But I don't have a snow shovel, and they don't sell them anywhere that I've seen, and so no one does it, and so people get hurt.
Now I'm going to put some cornbread in the oven to go with my home made soup lunch and get ready for being intelligent at 12:30. I think doing some more laundry (the trousers I've worn for the last five days can probably walk in on their own, and the tall socks are also needing replenishing) is also in the cards.
