not much going on
I just thought I'd post since it's been a few days. My goal is to maintain this thing daily or as close to it as possible. I just want to have something scrappy for each one. ;) Speaking of scrappy,
I do have a layout of Kara I made last weekend. I just love these beautiful photos, and these papers and colors were the perfect combination!
Today I watched a movie, 'Reign Over Me'. I can't say why I liked it, some of the material didn't even seem to have a place in the movie overall, but I was hooked and even shed a few tears. It's a serious movie with a few laughs thrown in. Tonight I am going to try to watch 'Talk To Me' since I have to return the movies tomorrow. I have watched 2 moves this week which is different since I usually take days to watch one.
And now onto my foot. I have been wearing a shoe a bit and it still feels icky, but it's getting easier to put on and leave on for more than an hour without feeling the need to hurl. I do this a few times a day and I have managed to take a few small steps. I looked for some Crocs during the weekend while we were out and about, but they didn't quite fit; they were too small or too large. I really wish they had half sizes because they were quite comfortable. I then tried several pairs of tennis shoes on, but that was a no go. I'd rather be barefoot than have pain like that. I'll try again in a week or so and maybe it'll be better then. It's all the padding and cushioning that hits exactly where my pain originates from. I have to say that they sure felt good on my left foot... that shoe is beyond worn out.
I am walking some, in fact I am bearing more and more weight on my foot with the crutches and am able to walk around a bit without them. I walk about 1/3 of the time now. I think I have been overdoing it a bit because my ankle muscle is sore, but it's so hard to not use it now. I am still being cautious and not taking anything for pain so I don't push myself too far too fast. It becomes more of a mental challenge each day to have to use the crutches. This whole process is mentally and even physically exhausting, more so than I ever imagined it could be. It's amazing how much one injury can take, I have been dealing with this for 6 months exactly now and have to wonder how much longer it's going to take. *sigh*
Ashlyn isn't feeling well today. She was stuffed up and tired when she went to school, but today was her last full day until after Thanksgiving weekend so I sent her. They have parent/teacher conferences from tomorrow until the 21st, which means half days. My conference for Ashlyn is on Friday. She's got a bit of a fever now and is sleeping, so I am pretty sure school is out for her tomorrow. I just hope if anyone else is going to come down with something that it's now and not during Thanksgiving.
Well, that's it for today!
