Alright, so if you read my November Currently you know I am back. Since I haven't missed blogging for over two weeks since I started blogging, let me fill you in on where I've been. Oh, and yes, it is okay to laugh at me. I laughed at me, so I promise it is allowed.
So, a little over two weeks ago we were having a bonfire for the fourth and fifth graders at our church. We do this every year at a volunteer's house that has plenty of room for one hundred extra kiddos. At the bonfire we do different games, a small Bible study, S'mores, and at the end of the night we play a huge game of Capture the Flag.
Well this year after Capture the Flag, we decided to play Hide-and-Go-Seek. The adult leaders had to hide in the dark with glow sticks around their necks and the kids had to find them. Two of the teenagers and I found the perfect spot. It was behind really big bushes (The ones that are 3 feet tall and 3 feet wide). I told the two teens that we would hide there, wait for the kids to run up on the porch, and we would push ourselves through the two bushes. If we did that, we would easily make it to base.
The plan was perfect... almost perfect! The kids came like I knew they would. They ran up on the porch and I took off running. Two steps out of the bushes and I am tripping and falling. I trip over the ledge of the sidewalk that goes to the front of the house and come down hard on my left hand.
Fast forward a few hours, three x-rays, and a trip to the emergency room and I have a sprained hand that's wrapped up in a massive cast for a week. Friends, that was the longest week of my life. The only person that had a longer week was probably my hubby who had to shuttle me everywhere.
Did I mention I'm left handed and it was my left hand in a cast? Well, that was the end of ponytails, dress pants, and most of my favorite foods for the week. It also meant having to learn to write right handed and how to walk away from a few things for a week or two including blogging.
Now that I've told you my "Woe is me" story, feel free to leave yours in the comments below. Oh, and two more things. I have my new and improved November Book Reports ready. Feel free to click on any of the pictures below to go get them.
