Crusin for a Brusin

I am pretty sure that 2 out of the 4 words in the title of this post are not actually "words" but oh well, I am in that kind of mood.

3 weeks ago I started playing softball with my friend Sarah. We are on a Women's league in our little town/county. It has been so nice to meet new people and get out and do something different on Wednesday nights, but in all honesty I don't know if my body can handle much more of it. Last week I pulled a muscle in my quad (or something like that, I don't know technical terms) and I tried to tough it out. It hurt like hell and I couldn't run or walk for most of the game last week. Then I went to Baltimore. I thought that things were fine, and I was feeling much better - until last night.

I stretched before the game and could tell that my leg was pretty tight but I didn't think much of it. Thought that I would be fine. Turns out a pulled quad muscle doesn't miraculously go away. I felt/feel like I am 80 years old, or at least have the body of an 80 year old. Today I am SORE and I have more bruises that I have ever had in my entire life. I have a softball imprint on my knee (yes I know this speaks to my great catching abilities)....and some gnarly bruises all over my legs. Don't worry I will spare you the photos :)

I can't wait for acupuncture this evening, I haven't been in over a week or actually closer to 2 weeks and I need it. My body hurts my mind is frazzled and I could use some rest and relaxation.

The good/great news. I bought a plane ticket, or better yet, my lovely mother bought me a plane ticket home to CA on the 31st of August. Yes you heard that right. I am going back back to Cali...For about 1.5 weeks. My big brother is getting married to a beautiful girl that I am proud to call my sister and I am going to be doing some much needed sunbathing by my parents pool over Labor Day weekend.

Dru and the kitties will miss me (right?) but I am super excited and Dru will join me for the wedding...

Speaking of the wedding - this video montage of the happy couples engagement photos made me cry, and miss my family and hometown a lot! I love you guys and am SO happy for you!
