Out for the count...

Ok... so it seems my active lifestyle decided to catch up on me ... and not in a good way.. Thursday while teaching my 2nd class of the day at the gym, I somehow did something awful to my back.. Intense pain and not being able to move and a few hours later I went to the ER and was there from 9pm till 6am friday morning (Jerry I owe you big time!). The doc said I have a lumbar sprain... but I swear it hurts like hell. They gave me percocet and told me to rest for a week..
The only comfortable positions are lying down on my back or belly or standing; sitting hurts and I cant bend fwd at the waist =( so sad...
So, I can't workout, I can't dance and I can't skydive.. which leaves with basically NOTHING to do. I'm going freakin stir crazy not being able to do anything... grrr.
Hopefully by the end of the week I'll be better.

4th of July in Style...

Loading the Plane... (Above)

First FLAG Jump for Kelly! So on 4th of July, I did my first flag jump, it was awesome. These pics are from the 2nd attempt, bc we had to rerig the flag so it would fly better. Thanks to Kevin and Kevin for the awesome pics, and Steve for riggin it up and showing me how to fly it.
Here's one of Steve flying the POW flag and me the CG flag... We couldn't quite get close enough to see the flags in one picture, but Kevin and Kevin sure did a great job taking the pics
