Ouch!

Today I woke up at 4:40 and then at 5:40 and I was in a fabulous mood, ready for the day, excited about getting it all done! Then I opened the door to let the dogs out, and saw it was heavily overcast-one notch down. Twenty minutes later as I was walking the dogs, I stepped on the side of a little rounded gutter/trough in the street and twisted my ankle - bam, another few notches down. The rest of a day seemed to not be as full of hope as it was at 5:50am.

I'm just glad I happened to be close to home when it happened, so I only had to limp a few blocks back, and that I could limp home, because I just didn't want to call JP at 6:00am and have him drive to get me and put my dogs in his nice car!

When that wash of heat came over me just after I stumbled, I knew it was a big more serious, but I'm so glad it wasn't broken. Do you know that rush of warmth when you hurt yourself? That's a big warning your body sends out! I just sat on the ground for a few minutes and then hobbled home. Poor doggies, they have no idea why their walk was suddenly suspended. And I wonder if I'll be able to take them tomorrow. Maybe I'll try my rollerblades...

The schnauzer sweater is just too dog-gone cute! Sorry, couldn't resist. It's very cute though.
