Mommy Down, 6th Green

So after 9 days on vacation we're home.

We had a fabulous time!

But it is nice to be in my computer chair home again.

Especially after my fall yesterday.


During our 3rd trip to the mini-golf course, I ran to the restroom.



Through the lumps, bumps, hills, valleys, obstacles, and treacherous-mommy-attacking course.

Guess what happened?

Yep, I tripped.

And fell.


It was one of those slo-mo-I'm-really-going-to-fall-on-my-face in front of all these tweens, families, and my own kids, type of fall.

I constantly, CONTSTANTLY tell my kids to WALK, not run anywhere, everywhere.

But, I had to get back on the course and get my 7-stroke-on-a-par-3 score!

Well, I paid for it.

Major golf-course-faux-grass-carpet-burn on my knee.

My right ear plugged from the impact.

The headache I had was scary-awful.

The aches in my body the day-after are still throbbing.

And, nope, no award-winning photo to capture the pure ridiculousness of it all.

Thank goodness.

The only bonus was hubby winning a jackpot at the end of the course, winning a free game.

We went again today before we headed home.

I walked.


Around the course.

I think my blood is still on the "carpet" on the 6th green.

And some skin.

    Ugh! Sucks. But I have to admit seeing a grown adult trip and fall has some comic relief.

    Ohmygosh, you poor thing! Isn't it amazing that kids can do that same kind of fall, cry a little, and then be fine. But at some point, we just lose our sponginess or something. Our impact absorption. (Cause I'm pretty sure we're technically spongier than when we were younger!)

    Oh no! That sounds painful! And you still went back, huh? I probably would've avoided the place. Home you still made it to the bathroom in time!

  21. Unknown said...

    I'm sorry I laughed a bit till I read you were really hurt. I hate that more than your ego got bruised. Feel better!

    Welcome home! Now get going on those Bachelorette posts! I chose not to watch this season so I heavily depend on your commentary! :)

    Oooooo sounds very painful - hope you heal quick!!! On the bright side next time you tell your kids to walk you have a good example to give them.
