We took time out for a little vacation in Mexico, my children's schools are as busy as a whore on dollar day and not only have I joined a Roller Derby League but Big Daddy and Babs have joined.
Roller Derby practice has been great. Over the past month my skating skills have improved by leaps and bounds. I was placed on a team a few weeks ago and then was given the choice to transfer to a new team and I accepted the transfer. There are 4 teams within our league and they all kick ass. I am currently a member of the Funky Town Fugitives.
Then this happened...
|yes that is my foot. my left foot.|
|2 screws, 2 clamps and a wire and humpty dumpty is back together again|

Long story short - My tibia was broke in 2 places - at the point where it meets the ankle- and the ligaments were torn and pulled away from the bone. On friday morning I went into surgery and they put it all back together with 2 screws, 2 clamps and a wire. I am in a walking boot but I can't actually put any weight on it for 6 weeks. Then if all has healed, a couple weeks of physical therapy and then I will be putting on my skates again and back on that rink to kick some ass.
So there you have it - May - it was a good month.
P.S. My Roller Derby name is Kung Pow Catalina
