I was down before I knew what happened. The leash slipped from my hand. Teddy started running.
"Grab the leash Alex!" I shouted at my son who turned to see my down on the ground and Teddy running.
Thankfully, thankfully he caught the leash moments before Teddy darted into the street.
Raised sidewalk, I suppose, was to blame. My hands and knees were scraped but otherwise I was fine.
It has not been my day.
The day began with a stomach bug with sharp cramps and I'll spare you the rest. When you are the mom, you can't really take much time to not feel well. So as the bug subsided, I was up again, making lunch, driving to the barber shop, going shopping for Easter clothes and prizes for Brownie Bingo, making dinner, walking the puppy.....
I'm feeling the need to call it a night and hope tomorrow is a better one.
