Okay dear readers, when you see the title of this post what is the first thing that comes to mind?
That’s right! The scene from Stephen King’s Misery where Annie Wilkes decides to keep Paul Sheldon around by hobbling him in the most horrific way possible.
But no, that is not what I am talking about today. No, I am talking about the glorious spill I took while talking to some lady and texting at the same time.
For The Hub’s birthday, we decided to tour the USS Iowa which is docked in San Pedro, Ca.
Right after taking this pic, I stepped off a curb and managed to really do a number on myself. The Girl’s reenactment of it is really quite funny, but all in all, I was a mess! And then, I had to climb all over this ship. Lots of ladder type stairs and many decks. By the end of it, I was done.
Too bad really because the weekend was fabulous! The Girl (on the left) got a medal for long jump and The Teen’s performance in The Drowsy Chaperone was awesome!

I took Monday off to recover but I am still hobbling around and in quite a bit of pain. You don’t think AGE is a factor do you?
I am just now catching up on Sunday Salon posts and even with the day off, I wasn’t able to do any reading. All I did was hang out in bed with a heat pack.
This week, we have NO activities!! The Girl starts rehearsals for Grease next week and I believe The Teen has his Spring Concert next week as well but this week is smooth sailing! I can’t believe it.
Anyway, hope you are all well. Did you do anything special for Cinco de Mayo? I insisted on making tacos even though I had to hobble around the kitchen to do it.
