Whew, things have been a little crazy around here. On Monday I managed to trip over a loose piece of flagstone on our front steps at work and the next thing I knew I was on the ground with 2 sprained ankles. I guess I'm feeling pretty lucky nothing was broken but this has really thrown me for a loop. I'm back at work today which is a bit of a challenge but at least I'm mobile. I was starting to get a bit depressed not being able to do anything. I'm off the pain meds now which I think were contributing to the depression.

The ER docs said no exercise for at least a week which is a bummer since I was just getting back in the groove.

So here I sit with 2 extremely swollen ankles and hoping to fit in my cute shoes by the reunion next week! I haven't been eating great but managed to lose a pound during all of this. Hopefully on Monday I can go back to my water aerobics class and carefully get back in the swing of things.

Sure makes you appreciate mobility!!


  1. So sorry about your injury! I hope you are back to 100% soon. :)

  2. Ughhh so sorry to hear it! Sending you healing thoughts :)

  3. Eeep! What are the chances of two sprained ankles at once? You poor thing!

    Get well soon..

  4. Oh, that sucks! I'm sorry to hear about your ankles. I hope you get better soon!

  5. Eeek, I'm glad to hear it wasn't worse, but still. Hope you're back to 100% soon!

  6. poor thing! I am so sorry you are hurting. I hope you start feeling better really soon.

    btw thank you for what you do for breast cancer awareness.

    Have an awesome weekend and get lots of rest on those ankles.
