I will be the first to admit that I normally love winter and the snow. However after what I'm sure has been 40 inches this winter including around 8 yesterday I'm done.

This is what we woke up to yesterday morning. It was wet slushy heavy snow.

Woke up this morning and it was still there, not as much, but just enough. I went out to check the mail and as I was walking down the steps I hit a patch of slush just right and...well I'm sure you can guess where I went. I fell HARD! I saw stars just like they do in cartoons. I was pretty sure it would bruise. I however did not imagine the bruise I would end up with. It's just below my lower back and is about the size of a softball and almost black! I sat through a 2 and a half hour PTA meeting this evening in pain. Forgot to take more advil before I left. It hurts to sit down, it hurts to stand up and I don't even want to think about how it's going to feel to get out of bed in the morning. And I had on good shoes, not boots, not flats, but a fairly new pair of tennis shoes. They still have very good tread to them. Guess slush in March is no match for any shoes!

On a brighter note we are supposed to see 70 degrees on Thursday! I hope it comes and stays. According to the farmers almanac we are supposed to get another major round of winter weather sometime between the 24th and 27th. I really hope they are wrong!
