It's Been A Looooong Time



So, no big suprise to those of you who know me well.....I once again got hurt. I went to sit down at work on a big roller chair, and missed it by a hair and went down hard and cracked my tailbone. OUCH! It's hurts so freaking bad. It hurts to sit, lay, stand, whatever.

Not much is new in the Helme Family. Honestly. Except that we might think about having kids sooner than we planned on because the ER doc showed me comparisons of a normal, healthy 25 year old spine, and the spine of a 70 something woman, and mine was identical to the 70 something.

I have struggled majorly with deciding what to do.

Sorry, I just had to pour my soul out a bit. I just get so angry at myself for ruining my bones. The Doc said that I had better have "one child ASAP" and then tie my tubes so I can start on old lady meds like Fosamax or Boniva. Man, my life is like one bad curse. At least I have an amazing husband and family.

OK......on the brighter side, I am so into V-day this year. I think I will have a party with all my girlfriends and their spouses and throw an "ugly sweater and pancake party." I even bought heart shaped pancake makers and decked out my kitchen table with valentine day decor.

It's wierd that I don't really like the Major Holidays....CHristmas, Thanksgiving, but I love Halloween and V-day. I don't have any cool pics to post right now, so I Just thought I would post clip art that represent my life right now.

I'm so sorry! I was wondering where you were. Didn't you break your tailbone skating too? I hope you get feeling better soon, and I'm sorry the doctor called you an old lady. But if the doctor says have kids... do it! You guys will have such beautiful kids.

Thanks Erica. The Doctor seriously was right. My bones are awful. I have to get yearly bone density scans because I am osteoporitic/osteopenic in my hip and spine....something like this can only happen to me. I don't have real good luck.
Yep...I did break my tailbone skating. Man, that seems Sooooooo long ago! You have a better memory than me!!

I am so glad you found my blog. Your blog is so cute and fun to read. I can't believe you were in the Echo triathlon. My brother was in it and my mom and I went to watch. I am so sorry about your back, I hope you get feeling better!

Geez, Louise! I am so sorry you broke your tailbone and above all, on GNO. I hope you feel better soon and they gave you some good pain meds. Can't wait for Feb GNO-you better not go out that day;)

I'm so sorry! I can totally feel your pain - I broke my tailbone while snowboarding about 6 years ago! I still have to go to physical therapy for it. :( It was awful, but the donut became my best friend. Keep it with you all the time and your life will be much easier!
