As usual- I'm late :)

We spent Easter Sunday with my family.  Char picked us up that morning and we headed west to check out our brother's sweet pad, of course after a pit stop for bloody Mary's...

We arrived (late) and was introduced to the new girlfriend.  My brother mixed me up a drink-- name is still pending, but pretty sure it should be something along the lines of One and Done.

We had some appetizers to pick at while we waited for the ham.  We gorged ourselves with all sorts of goodies, including a couple different pieces of pie.  Go on and judge.

Once everyone was done eating, my brother decides to do what every family does on Easter.  Shoot the shit.  

I don't even know what it was we shot, but it went boom.  He handed the gun over to me (after making me hobble down the hill and back) and I somehow managed to blow it up on the second shot.  I was pretty proud of myself.  Pretty sure everyone else was a little more scared of me after that.

After that happened, the responsible adults made us put the guns away, causing the party to rapidly wind down.  He mixed up another drink that made a SnapChat appearance and I was drug out of the house to head home.

Char got us back home in one piece and peeled out of the driveway to go home.  I don't know why she wanted to get away from me...

The Latest

The doctor called me back on Friday and informed me that my MCL is torn.  He wasn't comfortable saying if I need surgery or not, so I'm now waiting to meet an orthopedic surgeon to find out the next step.  I'll know more come May.

Friday Funday

I went to the doctor last Friday to get my knee checked out. It doesn't look promising. He thinks my ACL is torn but an MRI tomorrow will confirm that. 

Good times!!!

I left the doctors office and went to the grocery store. As I closed my car door the paper with my MRI appointment time and location blew away.  So there I go hobbling through the parking lot after it.  Right when it would get within reach another gust would stir it up.  I finally caught it. Char asked if anyone saw this go down. I can only assume no since no one helped the crippled girl out...

I went in and grabbed my potatoes and pain meds (read alcohol...) and headed home. The guys had finished the dog fence at our place and headed to the neighbors. They ended up doing ma and pa's yard too. 

Grandma's fried chichen, tAters, and gravy can All use some work. Guess that means well keep practicing :)

Another Fun Filled Friday

I keep thinking today is Friday.  It's not.  Which is sort of good.  I have a house to clean before my helpers arrive tomorrow!

We're putting in a new underground fence for the two pooches.  
Okay, mainly it's for the little one that likes to go visit the neighbors.
 Peter and Wisconsin will be here tomorrow afternoon to help with that.  I'll probably be late to the party.  I'm still limping around and people keep telling me I should go get my knee looked at.
 I have an appointment for tomorrow afternoon.  We're also going to try to make some of Grandma's famous fried chicken and mashed taters.  I'm pretty excited for that!

I hope you all have a very blessed Easter!  I'll be shoveling my face full of food at the brother's palace.  Rumor has it there might be a new girl involved?!
