It's Offical..... I'm old.

Please excuse today's lack of pretty and/or interesting pictures for today you get just a story. (I wanted to make sure I posted something today, just so you know I am still here......)

Ok, so it rained this weekend, not the hurricane rains like in Texas, but a good steady all day rain. Sunday morning I go out to take the dogs out on their morning "constitutional". The thought of waking up to a wet (or mushy) floor before coffee is unthinkable. So I slip on my "crocs" and venture out. On the way in, I fall. Not a graceful fall like something out of Swan Lake, a dump that was so clutzy, It could have been on Funniest Home Videos. It was a good thing only the local squirrels saw it. Actually, I think I heard one of them laughing. Lil bastids. We will see who laughs when I dig up all their acorns! HA!!

Well, I tough, right? I pick myself up, swear, limp down the stairs, swear again and wipe the blood from my knee and swear some more. Make coffee, and contemplated getting a "Life Alert". (only kidding) My day proceeds as usual....... until this morning at 2 am when I woke up to pain in my lower body. That achey, I just fell and was so stupid not to rest and take a hot bath, did anyone get the number of the bus that just hit me feeling. Great.

Damn I'm tired. It's a darn good thing my friend is a massage therapist and had an appointment today. I have also reached the conclusion I am really old and can't expect to recover as quickly as I did when I was 20! Le sigh.....

And please don't give me the crocs are "dangerous" lecture. I got it twice already, once from Jena and again from my massage therapist. Thanks ladies!!

And that, is my story for today! I hope your weekend was better!

I can't help myself, Katie. Crocs ARE dangerous, damn it all. Life is hazardous enough without throwing perilous footwear into the mix!

You have to be stay safe and be careful, my friend. I don't want to lose you to some freak accident - which you have to admit, we're both prone to...

*grin*

I hope the massage was wonderful and I'll bet Ms. A had fun reading you the riot act already, so I'll stop before I earn myself an irate phone call!! *snort*
