Last night, I got home quite late from work. My 6:15 meeting ran until 8:30. (Luckily it was quite productive.) Thank goodness I went into work a little late because poor puppy would have had her legs seriously crossed otherwise. I was pushing it as it was.
In walking her around the block, I had to avoid some serious sheets of ice on sidewalks. Towards the end of the block, I couldn't avoid it. I tried to walk carefully over some ice that was essentially as smooth as an ice rink after the Zamboni has gone through. Whoosh I went to the side, landing on my left hip under the bumper of a car. Pop went my ear muffs right off my head! It was not pretty. Although I was quite sore last night, today isn't too bad - just my hip and knee hurt now. That, my friends, I can managed. However, we aren't walking that block again tonight!
