Where in the world have I been???
My goodness!
I've really been a slouch to be honest...NOT.

The truth is.  And this is a really funny story.
(well, to me it is)
you know I'm kind of a klutz.  Which is really weird because I'm really pretty athletic.

So, last Tuesday night (like 8 days ago) I did a show with a group of girls.
Fun, cute, darling, sweet girls.
In Buckhead.
In the show was a rep from a new line of pants called 
Hold Your Haunches.

um y'all.
I couldn't wait to buy a pair.
I forked out the 149.00 and bought a pair of these amazing pants

These were shown on Shark Tank and were immediately picked up by the QVC lady (who I love BTW)

So.  I decided to do a before and after.

Well, I don't have a full length mirror (probably why I've let my a** get so huge).  So, (put on a pair of regular leg gins and stood on a stool in my bathroom that had a top on it. (hard to explain).  To take a backwards selfie in the bathroom mirror)
(I'm NOT going to show you how bad my butt looked)
Any way, the top of the stool shifted, I lost my balance, and I rammed my right arm (my painting arm) in to the wall next to it, did a 360 and literally wiped out on the tile floor below me, landing on my titanium hip.
Y'all, I'm serious, it was a pretty bad fall.  But, cell phone still in hand. WTW?

I was like, oh, oh, oh, I'm really, really hurt.  I'm serious.  So I scraped myself up off the tile floor and waited for someone to come help me.
But no one was home.
I wish you could have heard the moans.

Hip was great, shoulder,,,,not so much.  Was pretty sure I had torn my rotater cuff.
Actually I was positive.  And for a right handed painter? Not a good thing.

Any way, I got better.  Better enough to don my Hold Your Haunches pants, and go to the full length mirror outside of our condo and take a backwards selfie.

So, I (really, y'all I'm crazy), I put the before and after on FB.

Um, I'm almost insulted at the reaction.  I mean people were ordering these things right and left.
People said I looked 5 sizes smaller!  Really?  Ok, the piling on was a little ridiculous.

My fault for putting myself out there right?

So, since I'm all about promoting women's businesses and empowering women, I wrote the owners (who are from Macon, Ga) an e-mail with my before and after.
They put the pics on their fb page.

People were saying I photo shopped the pics.  I mean, I was honestly starting to get insulted.

Anyway,,,back to the shoulder.  Went to the dr.
Deep bone contusion, but hip is great!

and, even though I can't lift my arm more than half way up, nothing that a little drugs and physical therapy can't help
