I’m *tryin’* to tell you about my feet!
Okay…so here’s the latest.
I hurt my foot. Fascinating, right? We took Brittany and my nephew to Pennypack Park for a bit yesterday (and vowed never to do it again)….while we were there, the kids just had to get in the water and splash around a bit, throw stones and all but there is still a pretty good current in the middle of the creek from all the rain we’ve been having. So I climbed in to be able to grab them if they headed out too far or anything. *Note: We all had our shoes on.
My nephew was content to sit on a rock and kick at the water so Brittany and I were walking along the bank looking for good throwing stones 🙂 As we were walking along, I wound up stepping on a loose rock in the water and twisted my ankle pretty good….nothing new there. My ankles have been twisted and broken and sprained so many times I hardly feel it anymore. So I shook it off and kept on walking around with Brittany.
After we left there, we went shopping a bit and then to a decent playground and back to my parents house. No problems with my foot and I didn’t give it another thought.
When we got home yesterday, I was running up and down the stairs, doing wash and other junk…..I’m trying to get rid of alot of old clothes and other crap that’s in my room that I don’t wear or just have no use for – the Salvation Army is gonna love me this weekend. All the while Brittany was playing on my computer here.
I finally got doneeverything I wanted to do and sat down on the bed. While we were out, I had picked up some new artificial flowers and sat down to put a late summer bunch together in my big vase….purple, of course, with grapes and everything 😉
I finished up and packed up all the flower scraps and got up to put them away….but when I stood up, I couldn’t put any weight on my left foot. I had been sitting on the bed with it tucked under me and just thought I had been sitting like that too long….so I got Brittany ready for bed, read a story and everything and all the while I was aware of my foot throbbing.
When I went downstairs and sat on the couch, I couldn’t even move my toes, the damn thing hurt so bad….but I settled in to watch Dead Like Me. And the pain was gradually getting worse….finally about halfway through the show, I remembered that I had slipped and twisted that foot in the creek earlier – duh, me :-p
I hobbled back up the stairs at 11 to go to bed and took an anti-inflammatory and went to bed saying that if it felt the same in the morning, I’d have to go over to the hospital.
Well, It still hurt when I got up, but definitely not as bad. I took another pill, put on my boots instead of my sandals and went to work. Dude, today is the first day of Weavie Wonder’s 2 week vacation – I wasn’t about to miss that…..
Anyway, it was okay all day and tonight after dinner, we all went over the pool….of course after we got out of the pool, it hurt like a bitch. I’d rather not take another pill, though….just let it hurt, so I know what it’s doing.
Okay…enough about my feet for now, I guess……you know I like to write about this stupid shit sometimes so I remember when it happened 🙂
