Maybe I Should Have Gone To IHOP Instead Of ijump

Yes, some pancakes and a side of bacon with a cold glass of milk would have been good. Instead I chose to go with the kids and do something a little more physical that day.

Should have gone with the pancakes. LOL!

Everyone was having lot's of fun.
(well excluding the grand daughter on my lap)

We were jumping, sliding and even doing....

back flips!
Yes this is me, I couldn't resist.

The look on my grand daughters face as  
Grandma lands her back flips. 


It makes what happened next all worth it.  

I am going to share this 15 second embarrassing video.
Wish I would have been doing something really cool when this happened, but all I was doing was getting ready to do another back flip when...

Yes, the fat lady blew out a knee!

 Tore my ACL and meniscus and injured my lateral ligaments.

When this happened it felt like my knee and leg twisted in two completely different directions. 
I was in a lot of pain but I didn't know how bad it was, so I stayed and just watched everyone until it was time to go. As I watched my kids play a game of dodgeball my knee throbbed!
This intense game then turned into a wrestling match. So worth sticking around to watch.
I went home and slipped on a skirt so that I could go to the emergency room. The skirt made it easier to look at the damage I had done. :)

When I was checking in at the emergency desk the lady asked where I was when I did this. I accidentally said IHOP and she laughed because she knew I meant ijump. That's when I told her, maybe I should have gone to IHOP.
They put me in a brace and on crutches.

So now I just wait for eleven days until I can get in for surgery.
So while I wait...

This is my view...
 this is my Redneck Shower Seat LOL! ...
 Yes I really use this!
My husband said let's buy a shower seat and I said no, grab me one of the lawn chairs...

and these are the bruises from my crutches.
We don't play well together.

Because of all this I haven't been good about doing any projects and adding them to others linky parties. Sorry about that. Hopefully I will not be down for too much longer.

Stayed tuned for part 2
Post Surgery!

  1. Oh my gosh! Hope you heal soon!! Looks like it was fun though :)

  2. I thought you were gonna say pee your pants, that's what happens to me when I jump.

  3. Oh no!! I'm impressed that you can do back flips. So sorry about your knee!

  4. Oh dear Lord, well at least you were doing something fun when it happened. I hate going to the emergency room and having to tell that embarrassing story of how I ended up the way I did=)
