Back to Work

I decided to go back to work tonight, since my leg has been feeling so much better the past few days. I also wanted to go back since my job will only be around for the next 8 weeks or so. I lasted through a game and a half before the pain got too bad for me to stay. The bench I have to sit on is really hard even though I put two pillows on it. I only sat there for about 5 minutes and then I had to stand.

It was really nice to go back, though, because a lot of the guys were happy to see me. Luke and Drew played in the first game and they both did really well. It was so hard to watch the game, I kept thinking that this will be one of the last times I get to see them play. I wanted to stay for Steven's game, but I just couldn't do it.

My leg feels better now that I'm home. I realized that I probably made it so much worse at the beginning when I had the leg pain and I still worked for the first 4 weeks or so, sitting on that darn bench.

Um, if you had a wheel chair, you could sit comfortably! Just make sure it has a drink holder and a snack holder! You know, the deluxe model!

Does Alex still skate? I'll bet he'd love it if you wheeled yourself on in there!

LOL! Unfortunately, it was adult hockey so the only one who would be embarrassed would be me. And you KNOW if I had the opportunity to embarrass one of my kids, I would take it!

I thought about using the wheel chair, but I didn't think I would be able to see over the boards. My score booth bench is really high, I think my feet dangle about 8 inches from the ground.

Hmm...maybe a custom built wheelchair with a hydraulic lift??
