I guess this is what I get for laughing so hard at Chief last week...this morning on my jog, I biffed it. Those darn neighbors who don't rake their leaves. I couldn't see that I was running over uneven sidewalk and I tripped. As soon as I started going down, Chief thought I was speeding up and he took off running...making it impossible for me to catch myself. I ripped a hole in my pants and in my gloves. Blood was dripping down my pants and I now have scabs on both knees and my hand.
I haven't fallen like that in I don't know how long. I was stiff for at least an hour afterwards. When I hit the ground, an audible moan escaped my lips. Nothing like a fall to make me realize I'm older than I think I am. My kids fall at least daily and just pop right back up and carry on with their task. Maybe now I'll be a little more sympathetic those times they pretend their hurt by it.
