Clumbsy Me

Only I would sprain the heck out of my ankle two days before my husband leaves for a weekend seminar. In Seattle.

Only I would sprain said ankle doing something totally uncool. (Slipped off the concrete steps taking the garbage out. Lame.) The last sprained ankle I had was on my mission. I'm pretty sure seven years without a sprain is a record for me.

Luckily I have so many great friends who dropped by to keep Sophie entertained or bring us dinner. Or to put peroxide on my scratches, bandage my ankle, bring me a brace, and check on me five times. (Thanks Natasha!)

After Steve left, his mom, Judi, came to rescue me. Otherwise I would have cried all weekend from being overwhelmed. She was my angel this weekend.

I'm back on my unsteady feet (mostly), both girls are fast asleep, and Judi's on her way back to Sac. I think I can handle the next 20 hours until Steve gets home.

Oh, I'm sorry Natalie! What a bummer! We missed you on Thurs, but you had a good excuse! I hope your ankle feels better soon!

Poor girl!! But -- it takes some serious talent to injure yourself taking out the trash. Trust me, sister!

Gute Besserung!!!

Don't feel embarrassed. I tore the ligaments in my ankle leaping off a curb. I'm sorry to hear you turn yourself but glad it turned out ok. Hope you're feeling better soon.

Doesn't sound like the average fun weekend of 'daddy's gone' :(

Did you get in some decent couch time, at least?

Seriously, you crack me up! You write just like you talk:) It was fun watching you gimp around church! Poor girl. Who knew taking out the trash was such a dangerous chore!!!

Jessica said...

Wow, hope it gets better soon. What a downer. I love how you write too. So funny. Don't feel bad about the way you broke it. I broke my elbow while I was standing still on a snowboard and fell backwards. Way lamer.
