My own personal blah, blah, blah...

Saturday, February 06, 2010

Well, once again the weather-peeps were spot on! It snowed from approximately 10am on Friday until about 5pm today (Saturday). And we have about 22 - 28 inches of snow! It's NUTS! And I am so completely grateful that we didn't lose power because apparently half our neighborhood has no power. My parents lost power but were prepared with a generator and have since regained power, and my in-law's are without now as well!

oh! snow...

My boy has now seen more snow in his little life than I think I have in mine! Here we are playing in the snow today:

The hubster and I took turns, okay, I only had one turn, but we went out multiple times to shovel and dig out a little, oh and for the pooches to play so I will for sure be sore as hell tomorrow. The snow is SO heavy it had to be shoveled in layers (hence the major power outages). Beyond that, we've been prepared. We have food and lots of alcohol and, you know, all the non-essentials to make our lives happy. I decided to make the baby some food tonight so I got out the chicken and veggies and fruits and got to work. The baby was asleep and it was also time to get to drinking. We decided, hey, we have a world of slush outside, let's use the snow to make some creative drinks.


I blended up some gorgeous strawberries and combined them with margarita mix, some triple sec and some tequila. I decided, hey, let me run out back and get some snow in our glasses and then I'll fill them up with the strawberry margarita concoction like a margarita slushy. I start heading down the steps in my flip flops (ding! ding! ding! Brilliant!) and then, in slow motion, feel my legs coming out from under me. I screamed my husband's name as I flew through the air landing violently with the concrete steps in my back, my ass, my arm...I don't even know! I think I was in shock! The only thing going through my head was, "PLEASE don't let me be hurt so badly that I need an ambulance because that is going to be impossible!!!"

"Say what?"

My husband and dog were outside within seconds, god bless them, and I was flailing around on the ground trying to figure out what hurts and what the hell just happened. I basically crawled back in the house and got in the shower immediately. My arm was turning black and blue already and I had a big red mark across my back and my ass that felt like it was on fire. I think I was a little in shock - for reals. Currently I am on 3 Advil, a strawberry margarita and a vodka, berry punch because if I don't drink heavily I am very scared of how I will feel.

I can already feel my back and my side tightening up and I fear for tomorrow! I am so thankful that this didn't end up worse, I know, I'm an idiot. I should have just gone walking down a steep flight of snow packed, concrete steps with banana peels on my feet! I'm just happy it wasn't worse and that I'm alive. If I can get some good pic's of my already forming bruises I'll post them. We'll see how thankful I am tomorrow. As for now...liquor + ibuprofin = all gooooood!

    Um, you might want to just go back outside and lay in the snow for a spell ... when treating inflammation: ICE first, heat later! :)
