the splits

I think the last time I did the splits was in ballet when I was probably 5 years old. I was much smaller and much, much more flexible back then! Well, I did them again last night...completely involuntarily!

Yes, while getting into my car, my shoe slipped on some flat piece of plasitc and sent my front foot flying out in front of me. I swear, I am surprised my pants did not rip. I am laughing now while writing this, but it was definitely NOT funny then!

I was already completely pissed off that I had gone WAY out of my way to 2 natural gas stations and the pumps were down at both. I finally got gas at a pump that said it was broken (yes I filled up anyway because I was NOT going any further) and got a measly 2 gallons (I guess you have to know how this natural gas thing works...Veronica can sympathize).

So I pick myself up, screaming obscenities, get in my car and just start sobbing. I know, so pathetic, but I needed it.

I am sooo sore! I think I completely streched out my groin muscles. It really does not help that I am 20 lbs. heavier w/ child in womb. I guess it could be worse...I could have fallen wrong and hurt the baby or could have shattered my ankle like our poor cousin, Chamaine, did while she was 9 months prego!

For now, if you see me waddling, you know why!

I'm so sorry! I'm just glad to hear you are only sore and nothing worse happened. Even though I'm sure it hurts like heck. I tried doing the splits about a week ago and about died! I've got to work on getting my flexiblity back!

OUCH! I am SO sorry! The worst part is that you can't take anything for the pain! I hope that is your last fall for many moons! P.S. I cannot believe you could ever do the splits - holy cow!
