Just Tuesday

Is it just Tuesday? I feel like it should be at least Thursday. I hurt my ankle yesterday trying to walk in high heel boots that I wear often and love so much. I was unloading the back of my car after work and I kind of "rolled" my heel and fell. That is what the ortho nurse called it ....."rolled". fUNNY! It felt more like "yanked". Anyway, the right ankle quickly began to swell and I was so worried I had fractured it. But my husband and I decided it was not a fracture and stuck it out until this morning and self treated doing the RICE (Rest, Ice, Compression, and Elevation) thing. Neither one of us wanted to be in the ER for God knows how long. I went to see the local (only) ortho and after xrays and a quick exam....discovered it was only a sprain. What a wimp I am. DUDE it hurts. How can this only be a "sprain"? Heehee, I'm so dramatic.

So, I got this brace thingy (hubby called it a "tendon compression device" because he knew that it would sound more dramatic and I would like thats....bless him.....) that I have to wear for two weeks and I can't do aerobics for 3 weeks. Knock on wood....I have never broken a bone! I was so scared and upset because I thought I had actually broken a bone. Oh well, I will live....meanwhile.........I still create.....
I felt like doing fabric art tonight so I finished this little house pillow. I love how teal and brown look together. I added fabric word "sweet". I'm making a bunch of these for Funky Finds event (see sidebar icon). I kind of freaked out today cuz Lisa and I were realizing how soon this event is coming and how much we still have to do. It will be fine but we have much to do before the event.

Sorry about your sprain - those do hurt so much - sometimes worse than a broken bone ! You should milk it for all it is worth though - some drama may get the hubby doing some of your chores for an extra little while !;-)

Some sweet art here ! If you are anything like me, the pressure of a deadline will be just what you need to bat some stuff out of the park !!! Enjoy and keep up with the RICE and the TLC !
Happy Wednesday !

Ohh, I am so sorry. I understand the knock wood thing, too. So glad you didn't break anything. Who wants to have their first break at this stage in the game. Love the pillow. All my artsy friends are making me want to plug in my machine, too. Take care and let the hubby wait on you for a few days.
