Elbows Are Important

Monday, January 20, 2014

I have the worst case of tennis elbow and I feel like an old woman. Who knew that every muscle in your arm connects directly to and hinges on the use of your elbow. That statement makes me sound like a complete idiot because well... of course it does you fool! I played a 3 set tennis match yesterday pushing thru the pain get excruciatingly worse for the win. And today I am really regretting it. I first felt the injury coming on 2 weeks ago as my two teams seasons were overlapping and I played back to back Sat. & Sun. matches. I should have stopped and rested for 2 weeks but nooooo. Now I have no choice. I can't pick up my coffee cup and bring it to my mouth, couldn't push down the pump to spray hairspray this morning (apparently the index finger is connected to the elbow). Ouchy... this really blows. It also means that for the duration of the #jmdvdchallenge I can't lift weights with my right arm which sucks too. But hey... I won a really hard match yesterday even though my arm was about to fall off. 

I also made my favorite breakfast from childhood on Saturday morning cause I had no where to go and nothing to do but curl up on the couch with hot coffee, eggs, toast and the dog. Whitney made it a few weeks ago and it reminded me how good it is. My Dad used to make it for us and he called it the One-Eye cause it kinda looks like an eye starring at ya.  So here's what you need:

2 eggs
2 pieces of bread ( I like rye)
Butter for all sides of your bread
A shot glass to cut out the hole in the middle of each slice
Seasoning of your choice (I like Cavender's All Purpose Greek Seasoning)

And this is basically how it goes down...

Seriously ya'll it is so good for breakfast, lunch or dinner. 

So other than that my weekend was pretty low key. No dates, minimal stalker texts... just a few here and there to ignore. No PBR... tickets were too expensive. One trip to the dog park so the pup could run for an hour solid. Kids were with Dad so Amy got to be lazy, which I love. Sometimes I think it would be so nice to have someone to be lazy with but then they might annoy the crap out of me just with the sound of their voice... seriously that happens! I actually caught myself shushing the dog this weekend cause he was staring at me. Lol... it's thing like this that lead me to believe I am right where I need to be. Enjoying my time.

Hope everyone had a great weekend and Cheers to a great week!
