4th of July

Hope everyone stateside is having a wonderful holiday weekend! We got back from vacation late Wednesday night but we’ve been running ever since. My daughter’s all star team was still in the running so my daughter had a game the very next day. And they won 23-6! So practice on Friday afternoon but I had to run her into town to get new cleats and a new bat. My shrimp has had a major growth spurt in the last few months. She went from a size 4 shoe to a woman’s size 8 (boggles my brain)

So anyway, my husband and I were pitching to her before she had to leave for practice and she NAILED me with a line drive. Hit me in the elbow and omg PAIN. I sent her and dad on to practice all the while pretending it didn’t hurt because my daughter was CRUSHED that she hit me. As soon as they left I started whimpering like a girl. When they got home, my husband took me into the ER to get it x-rayed because the pain and swelling had only gotten worse. Good news was nothing broken. They put me in a sling and sent me home but good grief it hurt. Still hurts days later!

We have another game tomorrow night against the only team that has beat them so far. I told my daughter I’d forgive her trying to kill me if she’d hit like that in the game :)

Right now the kidlets are off buying fireworks with their dad and I just rubbed down the meat that’ll go on the grill when they get back. I’m SO bummed that our pool still isn’t finished. That would have made our weekend perfect. It’s taking forever and I’m getting impatient. We’re down to the last two steps and hopefully they’ll jump right on it Tuesday. But I’m not holding my breath.

    Definitely invest in a salt water chlorinator!!!!!!!!!! Best thing I ever did. Pool companies will try to talk you out of it because guess what….they can’t sell you all their chemicals. :-) Hope your elbow feels better soon.
