Really? Another delay?
Really? February has been all about delays. We've had delays due to snow, illness, top secret projects and supply companies. I tell ya, we have been behind the eight ball all month. And just when I thought we were out of the woods I go and sprain my ankle.
Early yesterday I ran out to drop off a ton of packages at the Post Office and as I was leaving I fell off the curb wrong and fell out into the parking lot. With the help and kindness of strangers I eventually made it to my van, then slowly and carefully drove home. Did I mention that it's my right foot?
After two hours, four Advil and contestant ice it was clear that I needed an x-ray. The good news is that it's not broken or chipped, but the bad news is I have slow it down and let it heal. The doctor ordered two days off my feet and another 3-5 days with little walking. OH BROTHER, another delay? I don't have time for this.
I know I should be thankful that isn't not that bad, but I am fighting off a real pity party, today my whole body hurts. My right ankle feels a bit better but my left knee and lower back is killing me. I guess you can't fall like that and not hurt the rest of yourself.
So, here I sit with my ice, my kids and some yummy chocolate to dull the pain and entertain myself. We could all use a bit more family time.
