So, I'll be dealing with the effects of these falls for a while - mainly just moving slowly because of aches and pains, and also being extra careful not to fall again. At least I can't fall while sitting in the car! I'll probably be taking Vitamin-I for a while (Ibuprofan).
The fall was the unfortunate end to a very good concert. We had a virtually sold- out house, and we sang well. The audience expressed a lot of appreciation, collectively and individually. Yesterday was actually quite a day. We went to church, then I sang two solos at a 1pm funeral service for an old-time Guilford resident who is related to half the people in town (the church was packed); then we went to the concert. On my feet for a lot of time, climaxing in a 70 minute non-stop performance - the Brahms Requiem is demanding in that way. There are no breaks for the chorus while soloists sing - they sing with the chorus. That's why I sat on that chair! I was tired. Should have checked the position of the legs first!
Today has been a day of organizing, packing, preparing the house to be unoccupied. We turned in the "hold mail" request. Outstanding bills are paid. Zac has been notified. Etc.
