Spring is when you feel like whistling even with a shoe full of slush. ~Doug Larson

I don’t mind the slush but I do mind when that said slush freezes over night. It is treacherous out there! I am walking around like an old woman, I am so scared of falling on the ice again. A few months ago, when I was putting Scarlett on the school bus I slipped and fell, only to get up and fall again. Not only was my pride was hurt! I was just grateful that I didn’t break something (LIKE MY WRIST!). I nervously looked up at window of the bus thinking that Scarlett was probably worried about her poor injured Mamma and she was laughing hysterically. To my dismay, the bus drove away, with her laughing and waving. When she arrived home I said to her “You know, Mummy really hurt herself when she fell down today and you laughed”. She answered “I know Mamma, but it looked REALLY funny!”. And, I guess it did. People falling down is pretty classic humor. The incident, however, has left me a little shell shocked. I only wear my gray boots, which seem to have the best grip and I continue to walk with great trepidation.
I am so looking forward to slushy puddles that remain that way overnight so I can walk with a little grace again.
