I can’t believe it, dear readers…but I’ve managed to injure my foot!! Again!!
My legs and feet have been my Achilles heel – pardon the pun! – for about as long as I can remember. I’ve had my ankle accidentally slammed in a car door by my dad and gruesomely impaled on a screen door by the wind; and I once somehow managed to get my baby toe caught in porch glider (don’t ask!!)
The most serious, of course, was my broken foot and the resultant DVT two years ago; the side effects of that are something that I’ll be dealing with for the rest of my life. Luckily, this current injury isn’t nearly so bad…although it was rather dramatic; my Macbook slipped out of my hands while I was FaceTiming my parents, dropped onto my foot, and popped one of my nails right off!! So gross!!
Thank goodness that Robin was home, because our livingroom floor instantly looked like a scene out of a horror movie…and I am ridiculously squeamish. At least the pain has receded to a much more tolerable level by now; but I’m obviously going to need to be rather selective about my footwear choices for the next few weeks!!
