You know, because you wanted an update about #bumknee, right?

My left knee is still messed up. I have an MRI scheduled for June 21. Happy early birthday, Patrick!

When I take anti-inflammatories and darvoset, it feels a bit better, but only a bit. It still hurts like a mo’fo when I pick it up off the ground. You know, like when I do ANYTHING.

My girls were already going to my parent’s house for the week because I was going to Anissa’s (*sob*), so now I’m going up there with them so my mom can take care of all three of us. I’ll be the one on the couch being served sammiches and pie.

You think I’m joking.

She’s a good mom like that.

My mom can beat up your mom in a World’s Best Mom pageant. She’d kill you with her passive-aggressive statements and near-to-tears smile.

They live just across the inter-coastal from Destin, FL where tar balls and oil sheen has been spotted, but for now, it’s 99% clear on the beach. That is MY beach.

And of course, with my bum knee, I can’t hobble my way out to the sand without possibly tweaking my knee even more.

But I must go there. I MUST see it before it’s gone. As much as I’d like to think it wouldn’t and couldn’t happen, there’s an extremely likely possibility that MY beach will be ruined for years.

I must go and see it, photograph it, smell it, feel it.

Be there.

I will find a good place to go and be there without walking too far on my bum* knee.

That or I’ll tell myself, “It will be worth it to completely wreck my knee for getting to spend time on my beach with my girls.”

*Why is it that I keep wanting to add a “b” or another “m” to the end of bum? Stupid English language and its weird sometimes rules.

I’ll be happy to care for you and your girls (and Patrick, too) any day! See you tomorrow! We can go enjoy our beach together. And, yes, take LOTS of pictures. I’m very afraid of what will be coming in the future. Drive carefully. Love you!

Please bring back a big freezer bag of sand. It might become valuable. Also, bring back your bum knee and my babies. I will miss them all.

I’m surprised you are having to wait so long for the MRI. That seems cruel & unusual to make you wait 2 weeks.

Maybe you can hire a team of men to carry you around for a day. The cost is completely justifiable.

Stupid oil. I hope it, and your knee pain, goes away soon.

Don’t push yourself too hard. You’ll love it as soon as the whole room is done – been there, done that. You’d be susrirped how much you’d appreciate that new, open space. Good luck with the island upgrade!

Renting a wheelchair seems like the thing to do. There are a few places in Cali that have paths for wheelchairs to get on/near the beach. Maybe there are some there?
*HUGS*
Good luck & enjoy as best you can.
