Ouch!

Today started out great! It's the day we have been excited about for quite a while...the remodelling of our kitchen is about to begin! Nothing huge,like knocking out walls and such, but new countertops, appliances and some new cabinets. Well, I guess that IS pretty big and I am so excited and thankful that we are getting to do it! I left the house about 8:30 to go to water aerobics....a class I attend 3 days a week. Halfway through our session, during the "Russian dance kicks", I proceed to kick the edge of the pool where the fountain is. Kind of hard to explain, but there is a concrete corner that angles down into the pool and I kicked the living daylights out of it. OUCH!!!!!!!!!!!! For a moment I thought I had broken my toe, but it is just badly bruised. DOUBLE OUCH! I come home, get ready, and go run errands. I drop by the mall to return an item and head back to the car. As I go out the door, there is a large paper ad on the concrete and as I step on it, the slick side of the paper is facedown and guess what happens next? I go flying through the air and somehow land on my hands and knees. It hurt so bad, I couldn't move for a second. I finally get up, limp to the car, and lick my wounds. I finish errands, hobble back home and now I am sitting in the chair with my toe throbbing and a black and blue knee. I am going to a birthday party tonight at a Chinese Restaurant........ wonder why I feel a little apprehensive about going?!?!
