Finally sitting down after a busy morning. Dropped the big kids off at school, grocery shopped with the other three, then back home for a quick snack before going to the doctor. I stubbed my little toe in a rather embarrassing incident Saturday night while practically running to the kitchen for an ice cream bar. I ran it right into a pulled out chair, loudly voiced some expletives and beat up the kitchen counter a bit. I headed to bed shortly after (didn’t eat the ice cream bar), expecting it to immediately resolve like any other stubbed toe I’ve had before. But when I woke it was really sore with movement, and after standing in church for a while it started feeling increasingly swollen and uncomfortable. I iced and elevated it yesterday, but when it was down it didn’t take long to puff up and bother me. All I could think was “what a lame injury”. I mean, seriously…the potential of being out of Jazzercise for 6 weeks over a little toe?!!! And I turn 40 this Saturday…not quite the way I wanted to “rock 40”.
So we went to the doctor for an xray. I know, I know…they can’t do anything anyway. And believe me, I’d have saved myself the copay and the fun of sitting in an office with three kids had it not been for needing to know how this was going to impact my Jazzercise classes and if I needed to line up subs. Fortunately it’s not broken, and I can do activity as pain (or lack there-of) allows!
While I was there we got the EKG out of the way that was supposed to be last week (story here). I’m falling apart, y’all! Anyway, went to the EKG appt last week with four kids #becausewhywouldntI and sat there for an hour. I finally asked how much longer, and when I discovered they still had three patients ahead of me I rescheduled. We had lunch to make and eat and the kids needed naps before we had to run back to school. We’re on a schedule, people! Since I was at the regular doctor today I said, “Hey, while I’m here…!”. So two birds, one stone today. Perfect EKG. Things are looking up. 😉
Anyway, after all the craziness that is my life, I’ve been able to do some more catch-up lately. This is one of many way overdue posts! For months I had plans of making these little tags. In fact they were cut and ready to go, they just needed about 10 minutes of my time to make labels and tie them on, which I finally accomplished a few weeks ago. And now it’s taken me this long to share it!
