We are going roller skating tonight. It’s for the school. It’s a good thing. My girls are excited about it. I won’t break my wrist. Right? RIGHT??????? Maybe I won’t have to strap the skates on. Maybe I should do it anyway and conquer this fear I’ve had of roller skating for 2 years since I broke my first bone and realized how much it sucks to have a broken bone.
(Two years ago I broke my wrist on Christmas Eve while roller skating. For the record, I do not recommend spending Christmas Eve in the ER.)
Isn’t there something about getting right back on the horse? You know, though, horses freak me out. They’re really BIG.
I was having flashbacks this morning of trying to put on deodorant one handed. And blowing my hair one handed, and showering with a plastic bag over my arm, and how much I hated all of it, because, you know, broken wrists hurt for like, weeks. I did NOT know that. I thought once the cast was on, the pain was over. Nor for me, babe. Of course, it could be that I’m old(er) now, and don’t heal as quickly. And I’ve aged considerably in the past 2 years. I’m sure my bones are more brittle than ever. I need a glass of milk.
How wussy is it if I just send my husband with the girls and stay home with the boy? Totally wussy? Or just semi-wussy? Or just, you know, really really smart, not wussy at all…….
I don’t even know where the hospital is. It might be a long drive from the rink, and my new insurance isn’t that great, and I am nowhere near being done with my Christmas shopping, (wrapping presents one-handed!! NOOOOO!!!!) and I haven’t taken a Christmas picture yet, and Lortab makes me itch.
But my girls don’t really know how to skate, and might need my help. Maybe if it’s “all about the kids” I can do it.
Who am I kidding? I’m totally sitting by the rink. Get thee behind me, skates.
