FORCED R & R DAY
Sunday, August 15, 2010
Well, I guess one gets what one deserves. I knew that I shouldn't have been walking around in flip flops all summer, but I did it anyway. I've felt the difference (no support) in my knees. Took Mr. Puppy (an 85 lb., 11 yr. old black lab who still thinks with a puppy's brain) for his walk and when another pooch came out to check him over, he got all excited and managed to slam into the front of my (GOOD) knee and hyper-extend it. Today, I'm forced into having to basically sit with my leg up, icing the swelling and doing just simple things from my chair. NOT the way I like to spend a Sunday, but at least I'm getting a lot of other mundane stuff done like sorting, laundry folding, required reading for school and lesson planning. Am hoping that behaving myself today will get me back to something closer to normaiity tomorrow! And yes, I put the flip flops away and put on some walking athletic shoes.
