Inside of every unhappy situation, you sometimes have to hunt for the good. Neices and nephews are your good side. And when you and Rol are in a place of your own, that will be the good side. The unhappy side will be missing the neices and nephews. It is a trade-off. If I see rockets of red glare in the night's air, I will know you have found a job and are in the planning stage of moving out. Hang in there! It will happen soon. Of that I am sure.

Out for a stroll in the snow, hit a patch of black ice, landing on one knee...Ouch!

No more strolls for you. You don't know how to do it right. You'll do anything to get out of work!

Oh no! Hope you're OK.

Funny how the tiniest bit of ice can do such damage. I broke an ankle a few years ago just getting the mail, on a 5 inch patch of ice.

Ouch. I feel for you. I've done that way too many times. I'm surprised I've never broken my knee cap. You're a nurse so you know how to take care of an injury. Make sure you do and I hope you're not seriously hurt.

Just be glad you haven't broken your kneecap. I've broken the same one twice. When you can't bend your knee (when it's in a brace) you can't sit properly. You can't drive your car. It's a real PITA. First time was on ice, second time was in the dark on some patio tiles left on the sidewalk. BTW, if you ever suspect a broken kneecap, do your best not to walk on it and if you do have to, do it without bending the knee.

I stayed at work, the knee is just bruised and works fine.

I usually land on my butt, all 4 paws in the air.

Thank you for this as I really need cheering up today and you are the third one to do so, so it has been a very good day (plus my Dad was quite peaceful while I visited).
