Welcome to my little corner of the world. I am so honored by your visit today. My name is Kristi and I am married to my college sweetheart(I refer to him here as "Mr. Incredible"), momma to my 2 beautiful girls who are growing much too quickly, a high school computer teacher, photographer, and a gardener (at times~right now I'm growing weeds). I love to laugh, drink strong Starbucks coffee, take pictures, and be anywhere my family is. Jesus is my Savior and I try so hard to be the wife and momma that He has called me to be. I often fail but He lovingly picks me up, dusts me off, and encourages me that with Him all things are possible. Feel free to join me on this journey of faith, stop in and say hello, look around, and leave a comment~I love comments. Why "Kiki's Corner?" My nephews call me Aunt Kiki and I love that too.

Yep, I'm That Girl at the Dance with the Neck Brace!

I was so looking forward to my day...mowing the yard, working in the garden, doing some spring cleaning, and maybe a pedicure. All of these things that I simply have not had the time to do.

I woke up at the early hour of 6:30 with a new sense of freedom. With no more papers to write or tests to study for, I knew that I would relish in the new found joy of my day.

I thought I would start the morning over coffee as I googled images for how to wear my hair on graduation day. It's been years since I had to think about how to fix my hair while sportin' a mortar board. Curly? Straight? In between?

I couldn't wait! Not wanting to wake up Mr. Incredible, I slowly rolled over to get out of bed when, Crack! Boom! Bang, OUCH!!!!!!!! was heard. Needless to say my sweet hubby popped out of bed at the speed of light. Nothing says, good morning sunshine like the horrific, excruciating cries of your bride who was only a few minutes lying sweetly beside you.

I'll spare you all of the details, but I have done a good job of completely messing up my neck and shoulder. Thankfully, we only had to wait 3 hours for the chiropractor's office to open. He told us a lot of things that I don't remember because, hello, I was in pain! Something along the lines of pinched nerves but maybe a disc problem that could possibly need an MRI, but we will just have to wait and see. But, in the mean time I get to wear a lovely cervical collar! Oiy!

Does he not understand that I have to give a final Power point presentation to my fellow college students Monday night? Not to mention, I have to teach school next week!

Hannah says not to fear, that if there is a way, we can bedazzle it. Thank you sweetheart, but I'm not planning on wearing this for long. Stubborn? Yes, that's me!

I'd much rather be called stubborn than the girl at the dance with the neck brace (remember the movie 16 candles?)

This resembles how I tried to eat my lunch this afternoon. Half of it landed in my lap. I won't even describe trying to brush my teeth. Yes, I'm valiantly trying to keep my big girl panties on and not throw a pity party, but hello....freedom where are you?

Trying to keep my chin up,

My goodness!! All I kept thinking was,,'Lord, she can't put her chin down, literallly'...ha ha ha,,did that make you giggle somewhat? If you didn't,,I won't be offended,,,it probably hurts to even giggle. I'm praying for ya....All I keep thinking is,,you just climbed the biggest mountain top and basking in God's goodness and faithfulness..and here comes Satan from behind, PUSH!! AS IF...that is going to keep you down girl...this is just ANOTHER notch in your spiritual walk, your testimony of God's power and glory revealed in and through your life...Your post was FILLED with faith, positive outlook, making not light, but finding the humor in all of this... a happy attitude does the heart good....((hugs))

Oh Kristi! Girl!!! That is horrible! I am so sorry!

I pray all inflammation will leave in the Name of Jesus and that your muscles will relax -- no swelling.

God bless you. Your family has been to the doctor ENOUGH already this year. It is time for health to reign in your home.

Oh my goodness, girl! You poor thing. At times like this, you gotta laugh. I'm with Hannah -- bedazzle that thing! (Just thing what great stories you'll have later when you look at your grad photos!) ; )

Hoping it heals quickly...

The Real Me! said...

Okay I'm sorry but I'm trying not to laugh. I really so hope that you are okay and that it isn't anything major but the picture brought back funny thoughts!
Hugs to you my friend and keep us posted.

sister sheri said...

So sorry to hear about this! If she does bedazzle it... I want to see a picture!

Oh no! That is awful! Those things are a pain to have to wear. Trust me I know. Let's just say I had a clumsy year that put me in a neck brace for 3 months and crutches twice. Get better soon.
