Back to the Beach & Downtown Mishaps

I'm so excited. My mother in law got the beach house for a weekend in July. I'm really looking forward to a whole weekend at the beach. The kids will have a blast. We have a cousin's wedding in Galveston that same weekend so it works out great.

I had an accident last week and I'm still in pain. I fell downtown on the hard sidewalk in front of a restaurant. Yes, right in front of the big window with all the people eating inside. At first I didn't know what hurt worse, my pride or my knees. It didn't take too long to realize it was my knees.

I was walking in a hurry to meet a client and one of my co-workers at a restaurant downtown. I was looking through the window for them and the next thing I knew I was on my hands and knees on the sidewalk. I stood up and one of my knees was completely bloody and the other one was slightly bloody. I tripped on a hole in the sidewalk. I felt horrible. It took me a few minutes to regain my composure. Thank goodness the client is an old friend and my co-worker is also a friend of mine, so they were very understanding. I had to clean myself up and bandage my knees in the restroom, but I went ahead with the meeting. Here I am a week later and my knees are barely healing and they still hurt!

The restaurant personnel were very apologetic but they were quick to point out that the hole was the city's fault. I still don't understand why they wouldn't take the initiative to put a cone over the hole if they know it's there. The best thing is, there are TWO holes. S0 I had a 2 in one chance of falling. How lovely!
