the story of an invisible girl

Owie
Ow. Went skating this morning. Somehow messed up a bracket, my blade got stuck sideways, and I landed hard on the lowest part of my back. I don't think I hit my tailbone exactly, but just above that on both sides. Maybe that's the top of my pelvis? Or just some back muscles? I don't know. But ow, it hurts!

My sis suggested that I try a "heatwrap", the kind that's like a hand-warmer and gets hot when it is exposed to air. It's got a stretchy bandage thing that wraps around your hips to hold it on. So I stopped at CVS on my way from the rink to work. I put that on my back, and it's been there all day. It feels kinda nice... but if I accidentally let my shirt ride up too high, the white paper pokes out the top of my pants, and it looks like I'm wearing a diaper or something!

Nice, really professional.

So I've been tugging at my clothing all day, trying to stay decently covered. And trying to keep my back/butt in a comfy position. Whee, happy tuesday! At least I finally have a bit of time to myself, after being in meetings and such all morning. It's been a frustrating week.

Gee, only noon on Tuesday and it's already a frustrating week.

Yep... not a good sign, eh?

I had fun yesterday when I told the liason that I've done all I can do until after the training next that they should have had about 5 months ago and were suppose to have had 3 weeks ago but postponed it. So to make things work, I have to go to the training, good thing I am caught up at the moment.

Getting back into the swing of skating already I see.

I've been skating individually for a year or so....just haven't been doing synchro.

How often do you have spills like that?

Ouch. I'm glad it wasn't a more debilitating injury. If you'd like, I can try to help if I can later tonight.

Talk to you soon.

Possibly... don't know if it would help, but it's definitely worth a look at any rate.

Either way, I'm looking forward to seeing you very soon! (:

Exactly!

Wow. It even makes me nervous sending this message.

I'd be willing to do this with you, but I'd be nervous.

I couldn't make it Monday in Ann Arbor though. It's my parents 35th wedding anniversary so my brother and I are taking them out. Interested in going out to the really good pizza place they love?
