Soooo ... does anyone remember the last time I sprained my ankle? It was June of 1999 as it turns out and I sprained my left ankle at that time.

I'm guessing you know where this is going, don't you?

I need to watch myself on steps. The injury in 1999 was falling off of garage steps at my parents house.

So are you ready for my new injury?

Saturday morning I was bringing laundry in a hamper down to the basement where the laundry room is. I completly missed the last step and somehow ended up folding my right foot and toes under my body and spraining the crap out of it. Thus far no cracks have shown up but I'm having that rechecked next Wednesday. So needless to say I've been layed up now for several days. I did go back to work today because yesterday I was bored to tears at home (injuries are the worst because your brain is just fine ... at least when you are ill your brain is befuddled from being ill, for me anyway). However, I'm in quite a bit of pain so I'm now questioning the wiseness of this move.

So my poor husband has to do all the work which sucks - Peter is quite a bit of care at 15 months. I can pick him up but I can't carry him at all. And I make a terrible patient because I hate being waited on when I feel I should be doing something myself.

Well I need to keep plugging away at my back log o' stuff here. Just thought I'd share and see if anyone remembers the last time I did this and get some sympathy. :-)
