The night started off great! We gave Erin her bday gifts. She was the one I was buying for on Wednesday. Here is what I got her . . .
I almost didn't skate because my back had been hurting all day. I knew I'd pay for it the next day if I did skate but had planned on calling the chiropractor for an appointment in the morning anyway. I know, way to rationalize! So I decide to skate . . .
kinda bothered me that my laces didn't match . . .
I was having a great time until the couples skate and Adrianna wanted to skate with me. She fell, I bent down to help, got a little off balance, over compensated, ended up on my rear. I fell right on my tail bone. Hard. I saw my life flash before my eyes then my legs in the air. How my legs got up that high with heavy skates on my feet I will never know. But get this, NOBODY came to my rescue! Can you believe that? There were 7 adults with us including me and not a single one saw me fall! I guess that's a good thing. If Aaron saw me fall he would have laughed. Had my friend Emily's husband witnessed my fall he would NEVER let me live it down :) Alas, one of the guys did see me struggling to get off the rink and came to see if he could help. Thanks Paul! Aaron got me to a bench and took my skates off and someone went to get ice (thanks Patrick!). I really thought I was going to pass out. I was afraid I broke my butt! But I could walk, if barely. So I iced all the way home then used my awesome rice bag that stays in the freezer for the rest of the night.
I called first thing this morning and made an appointment with the chiropractor. Adrianna and her friend giggled as I yelled while being adjusted. So I have a very bruised tail bone which will take about 6 weeks to heal. Ice, rest and no sitting on soft surfaces for a long time. Oh, and Motrin.
This afternoon I was talking to Aaron on the phone and mentioned how much fun skating was last night and that we'd have to go again sometime. . . Uh, not anytime soon! It was fun and we will go again. Until then I will be visiting the chiropractor several times and I'm getting a massage tomorrow - thanks Mom! But for tonight I guess I'll take it easy and lay around :)
