Better Day Today
I just killed a little baby bunny on my way home tonight.
On the highway.
This cute little critter ran right into my path. I quickly tried to brake but was too close and so I zigged to right while he zagged to the left. It all happened so fast. Basically the bunny did a panicked and confused serpentine right in front of me and was in the clear for a second. Then he ran back to my center and I hoped I'd be over the top of him and gone before he ran back out from under. And then he zagged to get away and I felt him under my left back tire. The poor little thing was so scared it didn't know what to do. :(
That is such a horrible feeling.
And before Easter. I know it's not delivering Easter eggs, isn't Peter Rabbit, but I'll be reminded as I shop for Easter goodies... road kill in a basket.
I have to say that between all the things that went wrong/happened yesterday ...it was not the best of days. And even though the bunny accident was technically today, I am counting it as yesterday so that today will be a clean slate-better day. And if things come in threes ...than I should be done.
As soon as I got out of bed yesterday I felt like both knees were hit with a hammer and I had that kind of pain all day when ever I walked or got up and down. I have no idea why because I was fine the day before - just normal ..manageable pain. But today was horrible. Horrible with a capital "H." And I actually wondered if all the orthovisk leaked out of my knees overnight. Is that possible? I just had the injections the last week in December and first two weeks in January. And as I walked into the store tonight, I fantasized about going to see orthodoc Monday and telling him I would go in for surgery the next day because I cannot live with this kind of pain. Believe me ...the last thing this SeaSpray would happily fantasize about is going in for surgery. If only it were that easy and I could put it behind me. I really would do it next Tuesday! Maybe I the pain will disappear as mysteriously as it came on.
Well ...time for bed. We have a birthday celebration tomorrow. And I did get a nice present, that I am actually excited to give and hope they like it. I was just venting in my previous post.
