I'm still pretty hobbled by the effects of that seemingly uneventful slip on the ice in Saint Paul (Saint Paul, of all cities!) last week. I'm getting around using crutches as ski poles to take some of the pressure off my back, praying on the living room floor with an ice pack on my back and generally avoiding anything that involves sitting. Like using a computer. (Believe me, this little spate is going to end really soon.) And I keep trying to "offer it up," as often as I think of it! Meanwhile, my sisters, Mary and Lea Ann, are enjoying the city, sometimes with me, sometimes...with me still on the ice pack while they take on the Magnificent Mile and the Great Green River.
Hope to be MUCH better by Monday.
