Too much crutching about

It was a long day out and about.  Driving kids to school and to an orthodontist appt. that did not exist (it’s tomorrow) crutching over snow banks, navigating icy sidewalks, crutching 4 blocks thru the skyway to get to a job interview and back again because the closer parking lot was FULL.  Finally got to the Dr. office to rent a TLC (turning wheel caddy) and used it to zip around the office for some meetings and finally got back home.  The caddy works great but now my knee hurts (I have Osgood-Schlatters that flares up after kneeling too long) so maybe I should stick with crutching.  At least my kids were happy to see the caddy because of course it was yet another fun contraption to play with.  3 Advil, a Newcastle and a bag of ice on my leg and the pain continues.  Maybe tomorrow will be better!
