Labor Day, A Cold, and A Slight Injury

Hey guys!

First off, I won't be finishing the August Photo-A-Day Challenge, for reasons later explained in this post. 

Yesterday we all got together at my great aunt and uncle's house for Labor Day!

Sarah and Lauren playing Cornhole!
Mary and second cousin Hadessah swinging!
Um... Yeah. I saw this nail and was like "Man, I should take a picture of that nail!" LOL
A sea of Raspberry lemonade.
From left to right: Ryan, who is my first cousin once removed, my dad, my papa, and my one of my great uncles.
Look at all the yummy food!
Oh, how I love Coleslaw.
Let me just say that this was a really good cookie!
We usually eat out on the deck, but it started to drizzle... so some of us pulled up chairs in the garage and ate on the pingpong table!

After it stopped raining, I took some raindrop pictures!
A wet deck.
Towards the end of the afternoon, some of us decided to play volleyball.

After playing 3 games, I was kinda tired. I debated sitting the last game out, and now I wish I had.

Halfway through the game, the ball came flying right towards me. I don't know why, but for some reason I hit the ball with only one hand.

Suddenly, it was like my ears just turned off. I didn't pay one bit attention where that ball went (it did go over the net, so they told me later). My wrist was killing me. I was just kinda holding it with my other hand. At first, I couldn't even wiggle my fingers.

I left the game, and went and sat on the deck. Slowly it got a little better, to where I could actually move my fingers. But boy did it hurt.

I put some ice on it, and it actually didn't swell. I think I pulled a muscle or something.

I went home and just kinda laid on the couch. I had a bad cold. My nose was running. My wrist hurt. And, I had a fever. 

So, that is why I won't be finishing the Photo-A-Day Challenge. To be honest, I just don't feel like taking any pictures right now. :) I do feel a little better today, since I am on the computer writing this post. 

So, that was my day yesterday. :) What was your Labor Day like?
