No photos today....who wants to see bruises.....physical or emotional?!?
So yesterday my day started out lovely......the now daily dense morning fog lifted early and we set out for our morning walk. I actually call it a 'forced march', as we walk every square inch of our subdivision. That includes a 1,000 foot elevation change - 4 times, requiring a 90 min. time commitment.
However, it's very helpful for my 20 year long battle with osteoporosis, and to exercise our 2 year old black lab. So....as we rounded a corner....Sooty spots a rabbit. Sooty is STRONG.....VERY STRONG. I had my hand snugly holding the retractable leash, when suddenly I became Sally Field. First as the Flying Nun....my feet left the ground as Sooty tore off after the rabbit....next I was Gidget....body surfing the blacktop road. Totally knocked the breath out of me....scraps, bruises, and perhaps 1 or 2 broken fingers are the result. Did I say she was STRONG?? I'd have let go of the leash if it hadn't happened so fast.....seriously this was instant. I won't bother you will the rest of the details....but I did not have a comfortable day.....well....today isn't any better either. The good news is that I've had more broken bones with less drama, so perhaps the new once of year injection I receive for osteoporosis is acutally helping!
It got worse......our beloved Packers looked like rookies. NO defense.....I cringe at the thought of Thurs. nights' game....losing is bad enough....but unthinkable where the Bears are concerned!
And finally......oh my.....week 1 of the suicide pool and I'm OUT....and in it's over for me. Why oh why did I select New Orleans to win?? A team that is being punished for cheating?? Geesh. If I'd only known my SIL had pick them too....I wouldn't have. She has the worst annual pool luck......I don't think she's ever made it past week 1 or 2 in all the years her son has organized it. In fact, 3 of the 6 of us in our family are out on week 1!!!! A total of 9 participants picked the losing team this week.....3 more have a chance to be out tonight depending upon if Philadelphia wins or not.
So....this is my sad tale of my black and blue Sunday. Don't get me wrong....I still appreciate that I had a Sunday to grumble about.......life goes on and so does the suicide pool...without me......
But congratulations to Robbie.....who got a last minute thrill from the Lions!
