I stepped outside to chase away squirrels from our birdfeeder this morning and slipped on the ice-covered steps attached to our house. Scared the squirrel (yeah!), scared myself (aaaugh!), and scared Sydney out of bed (what happened? who died?). What a nice way to wake up and prepare for church 😛
After only a few hours of creaking around, trying to take some weight off my right hip and such, I have to say this is getting old – fast. I’ll bet that even elderly ladies with strollers are more sprightly than I am today. But if this is anything like getting old, if it can conceivably take five minutes just to cross the street, well, I can’t say I’m looking forward to it.
But perhaps I should take this as an indication that I should spend more time sitting still, reading (you know, doing my “real” work), rather than flitting about running errands.
