No, i'm not in labor.

I went out to get the snow off the van this am, since i wanted to catch a LLL meeting and had a chiro appt. My dh, wonderful man he is, has kept our driveway so nice and salted and safe.


For this one little patch of ice drectly in front of the van, where he probably figured it was unecesary to salt, or else just missed it. But, as I walked around to get the snow off the front window if the van. I hit a nice slick, perfect patch of ice.

And did the SPLITS.

Now...on a good day, at the height of my physical fitness, I could never do the splits. Now is not even remotely close to that time.

I pulled every muscle in my entire groin region, resulting in the most hideous pain you can imagine.

I did manage not to land on the baby.

I can not express how much pain I am in.

Please watch out for ice.
