Starting today, I am running a week-long teacher's workshop with teachers from all over the country. I am not the teacher, I am the organizer. That means I am in charge of all the logistics, all the running around, all the business end of the deal.
So, an injury at this stage of the game would be a very bad thing.
Anybody catch the foreshadowing thing, there?
Yesterday, we drove to China. China, Michigan, that is, for a family member's graduation party. I was looking very cute. A sleeveless eyelet-lace top, denim capris and some really cute, comfy sandals from Naturalizer:
When we arrived, I saw a cousin I hadn't seen for awhile, and turned to go give him a hug. Unfortunately, the heel under my right foot landed half-on and half-off the pavement, turning my ankle and I went down HARD.
Luckily, this morning, the ankle is only a little bit sore; no major damage. The left shin took it fairly hard, though. This looks pretty innocent:
Just a bit of a scrape? Until you see it from this angle:
Please ignore the fact that this photo makes my leg look like a shank of meat. That part of one's shin, really oughtn't be convexly shaped. I'm glad it will just be unattractive, not debilitating. You can see the shades of purple starting to show. I'll be color-coordinating with it all week!
