A 3 inch curb got the best of me!

Hey there! I had a pretty good week this past week and was looking forward to a fun weekend. I was going to spend a girl night with my friends, then have a Mommy/Daughter day on Saturday, then go to church and work on designing on Sunday. Well, I was behind on my collab kit at CLD, so I took my computer to Amanda's house on Friday night and worked while I watched movies. We had a great time and when I was leaving to go to my car, the curb just jumped up and got me - hehehe!! No - really -clumsy me just didn't judge where the curb was very well, and slipped off and turned my ankle. I thought I would be ok and came home and went to bed, but after tossing and turning all night, when I got up in the morning, I realized it was worse than I had thought. So, Robby took me to the ER. Luckily, it wasn't broken, but I sprained it pretty bad. I have a splint and I'm on crutches - ugh!!! So instead of going to the craft show with Kaylee today, I got to go to the ER and then sit in a chair with my leg elevated and on ice. For those of you who know me - sitting still is TORTURE!!! I convinced Robby to let me go with them this evening to a trick or treating block party. We were planning to take the kids with Amanda and her two boys. It was fun, but I forgot how hard crutches can be. Robby tried to tell me, but I just remembered how it wasn't that hard when I was on them in high school. Well, geez - I guess I forgot how many years (and pounds- hehe) ago that was!!! So - now I'm off to go soak in the bathtub to try to soothe the sores under my arms and hopefully relax my arm muscles from the strain of carrying my not so small body around on crutches for over an hour!!! Well, I just thought I'd share and see if I get any sympathy here. I'm not getting much other than "I told you so" from Robby - hehe!! I guess I deserve it! :)

I hope you all have had a better start to the weekend than me. I'll be ok and it will heal. Just kind of a bummer - not how I wanted to spend my weekend. I'll try to write again soon to give you all an update. Take care!

~til next time,
Paula
