Black ice patch! Wednesday night after church, I walked over to Karyn's house with her and her kids. She said she'd give me a ride home (in reality, the time it took to walk to her house, I could have walked home!), so I accepted. Within 20 feet of her house, her oldest boy slips on the ice. I help him up. We keep walking that short distance, and then it happened. Have you ever seen the drainage slot in the side of a curb? Well, I slipped on the ice and *CRACK* both of my shins hit the curb as my feet went into the drainage slot. I didn't fall, but boy did it hurt! I had discolored goose eggs on my legs by the time I got into the van. When I got home, I just sat in the reclining chair. When I decided to go to bed, I could barely move! It hurt so bad. It's a little better now. :o)
I found out that my car is not worth fixing. I had it towed to a shop Tuesday night and found out yesterday. The head gasket is blown and the starter is bad. **sigh** Oh well. The car was given to me, so I can't complain. Now I am trying to find another one. If you would, please pray that God gives me wisdom in choosing a new one.
