Why My Husband Won’t Let Me Go Sledding Anymore… (Don’t Miss the Video!)

Why My Husband Won’t Let Me Go Sledding Anymore… (Don’t Miss the Video!)

Today is day four of us being iced in. We had a snowstorm and then an ice storm. Many of the mountain roads are impassable. In fact, one of our neighbors tried to get out of the neighborhood today and he ended up in a ditch. Another neighbor did a 360 on the highway up the mountain this morning, and also ended up in a ditch. A Fedex 18-wheeler spun, and blocked both lanes up the mountain yesterday. It’s been a pretty hairy week!

However, on Monday, it was just beautiful snow. The neighborhood kids wanted to come sled down our hill. I asked Mason to give it a trial run to see if there was enough snow. He said, “Mom, no way. It’s pretty icy!”

I said, “Okay, I’ll do it.”

Brian said, “What if you can’t stop?”

I replied, “Brian, I’ve gone sledding hundreds of times!”

He said, “How long ago?”

I stammered, “Um, about 20 years ago. But, don’t worry. If you think you’re going to crash, you just roll out of the sled and let it keep going!”

I’m now laid up in bed with a sprained shoulder. But, I’ve done that before. I keep re-injuring an old injury. I have to tell you it was TOTALLY worth the ride!!!

    It is all the dog’s fault. I saw him push you.

    Your husband’s comments were funnier than the video.

    I saw it. That tree jumped right in front of you.

    Angie Angie Angie. We don’t learn do we. Are we sisters? I have been moaning all week with cervical vertebrae (neck bones) out of whack from body slams
    and now when I put my head down for more than two minutes it coughs me and gets my sinuses going. Nope, we never learn.

    And so we stay young forever.

    Although I hope you were not hurt more than a slightly bruised ego LOL, your video was very funny. Just as funny was your husband’s narration of the event. Looks like you all have lots of fun, making the best of our crummy weather.

    Plenty of turmeric will help a lot. Fixed my shoulder after I fell and could not lift arm. all else was in pain if it moved. Now gone.

    Your head: “I feel like I’m still 25. I can do this. Hold my beer.”
    Your body: “I really hate it when she pulls this shit.”

    Me: Been there. Done that. Wish I hadn’t.

    Feel better and get well soon.

    I could not stop laughing.

    Ouch! Hope you’re better soon. Thanks for starting my day with a little levity.

    Hope your shoulder’s better now. You were going too fast to roll off! A long time ago, when my son was around 10, I went down a steep, icy hill on a saucer, hit a boy-built ramp, did a 180 about 4 ft. in the air, and landed square on my lower back. My son laughed his head off. I just laid there curled up in a ball until the pain went away. After that, I was able to laugh along with him. I’ll bet he wishes he had a video. Heck, even I’d like to watch it in replay.
