Albeit a bruised survivor.
OH MY GOSH PEOPLE THAT DEMOLITION DERBY HAS GOT TO BE ONE OF THE FUNNEST THINGS I'VE EVER DONE IN MY ENTIRE LIFE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Just wanted to drop a quick line letting everyone know I am alive and fine and all my bones are still intact. I know you all lost sleep last night worrying about your diva, but sleep now, my children, momma's fine.
My legs are wicked sore from bracing against hits, (we estimated about 50 hits in two heats) my arms are a little sore and my neck is only sore when I tilt it way back (like to wash my hair - OW!). My chest however is in serious bad shape. Last night by 11 I had a bruise beginning at my left collar bone. This morning I have one on the inside of my right breast. Now it's just a matter of playing "connect the bruises" to form one gigantic diagonal line from left shoulder, across right breast to right ribcage. It's gonna be purty, I'm sure of that. And tender! YOWIE. Abby has been so lovey today and every time her head whacks into my chest it just takes my breath away. I spit dirt for an hour after the derby last night and am still blowing dirt boogers from my nose this morning. Hey, you can't make this crap up, people.
Well, I'm off to take a nap, aided by a hefty dose of Aleve. Trust me, I will post pictures of the derby and the car afterwards tomorrow. Today's priority is sleep and then a trip to WalMart to get groceries. The kids seem to think we need food in the house...geez.
