So I'm not sure if all of you know I am (was) a figure skater, and I went skating for the first time in about
a year today. I was feeling pretty good (only had the D three times!) and thought it'd be good for me to get back on the ice again. I forgot that when I stopped skating a year ago, I'd just had my blades sharpened, and you've got to use 'em several times to "break in" the new edges. I had to stop suddenly by the sideboards and ended up falling flat on my face, totally busting up my left knee, and then skidding into the boards, left knee first! It is the size of a grapefruit and the color of a plum!
The pain is not nearly as unbearable as Tuesday's gut pain, though! I did have to succomb to the calling of the ibuprofen, however...Tylenol just doesn't cut it for injuries like that.
I then cooked a yummy, dairy-free dinner for some friends that included steamed artichokes, roasted garlic with olive oil and French bread, and homemade egg rolls. I am experimenting with new veggies and just bought a butternut squash. I used to hate that stuff and haven't tried it in years.
I'm going to see that guy again tonight...that one I was talking about last week. He called and wants me to go see some music with him. Don't worry...I'm not that invested anymore!
I hope you all had equally fun days (sans knee injuries!)!
