At a turtles pace

I am racing through a hectic schedule at a slow pace, which doesn't seem right... but that is why I am about to freaking insane!

I have been so stressed lately that I thought this weekend would be a great time for a get-a-way.... One of those lets just do something sort of things. I booked us a room at Gold Strike in Tunica and Thomas and headed there on Saturday evening.  We didn't get out our way until close to 2 due to having to go the eye doctor for new glasses for Destiny and myself, then go home, straighten up, wash clothes, pack and shower lol before I knew it, it was already after 1 pm. ACK! Got in the car to realize its a 4 hour drive! WHAT I though maybe 3 but was leaning toward 2.5 hrs lol not 4!  Oh well live and learn it had been a long time since I had been.

We got there, got checked in and gambled all night! It was great. Neither of us lost our shirt in the entire evening, even though that might have been a site lol we didn't thankfully!

Got settled in the room to sleep at about 6 am and got up at 9 am to drive back home, man its a long drive! Didn't say that already?

Home to more laundry and a dog that acted as though we were gone for days.  I slept on and off all evening (bailed out on a practice/gathering that I really wanted to attend but I was sooooooooo tired, I would have either stared at ppl blankly or fell asleep there). 

Got up this morning for 4 am clinic, joy joy joy! Makes me want to say ugly nasty words this morning despite the fact that I have gotten plenty of sleep now.

I need to get to moving as fast as my time goes by, I might actually get more accomplished.  Tomorrow evening is a meeting for work from 530 to730 pm which will take over my entire evening... but Wed. is Derby practice. I am so ready to be back around my new friends! I miss them! Oh on the bottom, I have definetly re-injured something.  I have not skated Sunday the 27th and not sure when I will return to the rink, I am having reservations about pushing it because I am so tired of ass my hurting and not being able to sit comfortably or get in and out of the car without pain.  I am ready to put forth more effort toward my goals but the pain has got to get better.  Two of my freshmeat friends are now scrimmage eligible and I will miss them not being freshmeat any longer but I am super duper proud of them for reaching their goals so quickly... and a little envious as I feel farther from mine then when I first made the plan of joining.  Blah! Its depressing almost.

I had told myself one more blow to the ass and I would call it quits. I don't feel like quiting and I am not ready to do that yet, but I do feel like I need to the bottom heal! If I landed on it again while it is still this sore and tender I very well may not get up, or injure myself beyond natural repair, or give up on my goal all together.  So, I am not going to push it this time. 

Well, this week shall be long and busy... maybe I will make it to the end at my slow pace and finish ahead :)


  1. Please don't quit.

    Injuries, especially when you are new, are unfortunately common. It takes some time to get all those little muscles you normally don't get much use from in normal life used to skating, and those are what prevent those injuries from happening. That, and getting more comfortable on your skates.

    Take your time coming back... stretch often and use the opportunity to strengthen your core and flexibility. Both those actions will prevent you from injuring yourself when you're ready and healed enough to come back!

    We miss you!

  2. Ha, what a wonderful post I made full of all sorts of errors, you can tell I through it in there lol Sorry! I often post without proofing.

    I don't plan on quitting, but it is so very discouraging to have one injury keep me out 4 weeks and turn around and do it again! I am hoping this will be quicker, but its definetly still bothering me so its not better yet.

    I look forward to watching everyone on Sunday and participating in ways that I can.

    Thanks for your advice!
