Yesterday, my mom came into my room and asked me to help her shovel the steps in the driveway. Now, I'm always really careful on the snow and the ice, and I haven't slipped in years, but as my mom told me I could stop, and I went back up to the house, I slipped and my knee cap just went with me. At first my mom thought that I had acutally broken my femur, but such was not the case as you could see my knee cap sticking out from under my skin. If i had not been in such excrusiating pain, I would have liked to get a picture of it. Anyway, we actually had to call 911, and they sent the fire truck.
 
Since my knee cap popped back into place just a minute after it popped out, the firemen and paramedics didn't have much to do, except check on me, and move me into the house (that's right, I was lying in the driveway for about a minute). So, my blood pressure was good (they took it again later and it was only a little higher), and because I could wiggle my toes and I didn;t pass out when the cap slipping occured, they declared me good, but advised I go to the hospital to get checked out anyway. So, Mom and I spent about an hour and a half in the hospital. I had no broken bones and I got a split that slips off of my leg no matter what I do.
 
My sister and I have decided that Hallowe'en is not a good holiday for me: six years ago, I hydroplaned why stepping off of a curb and face planted int the pavement. I broke a nerve in my mouth and had to have a tooth removed. so yeah, thanks halloween. at least this year I can eat candy though.
it comes to this....1 hour 25 min....hurry up clock, go faster!

On a related note, my sister called me a dork for wanting to stay up to start Nano at Midnight...yeah...

okay, will update within an entry at midnight, now, must let everyone on facebook know of my injury.....
okay, counting down, must go start musical playlist....you know what they say, one minute goes fast.
