Weekend Update- (Memo To Myself)

Although I love my two grandchildren dearly ...and how could I not? I must remind myself that my body is no longer as young and durable as theirs....

This past Saturday, My wife and I took them to Smith Playground and we got on that large sliding board.(.See photos below) While coming down a little faster than I anticipated, my body twisted and I hit my head...I sprained my neck and shoulder as a result.   Being the man that I am...I attempted to tough the pain out...but after much prodding by my wife and two nights of very painful sleep...I went to a doctor...After I finish this post...I'm going to be taking Vicoden (for the pain) and muscle relaxers....to relax those strained muscles..

It has been said that what one loves will kill you.....Indeed!  In this case...almost!

Oh PopPop, just shake it off!! LOL I love Smith Playground and that big slide in particular. The first time I took Miles he had so much fun and exercize that Ryan said he fell asleep in the bathtub that night. (I just fell asleep. My body was too weak for water!) Grandparenting is the BEST!!!

Let's plan another "grand" day at Smith this summer. We are supposed to have a family picnic at the end of July.

Well my man, I have my grandson with me right now, and he's staying for A MONTH! And, he brought a playmate with him. Yep, you heard me right, I have two knuckle heads on my hands. And, at the present time, my palm is hurting because I had to give them a little grandpa love... the spank that booty way.

So, you lay low, and don't forget your age cuz I know some pain lasts forever... when we get as old as you. :-)

But hey, you're up at my blog. Oh yeah, you better close your wife's eye's cuz some of your dirty laundry got dropped on the floor *wink*

And I am still waiting for Miz to stop by the post that made you the star of the day.
