Why Me Lord???? and also ... What's Not Wrong...

It's definitely all my husbands fault. I told him not to park across the street from our church on Sunday night...did he listen??? NO!!!! So...after church was over we started walking towards our car and that's when it happened. I walked right off the curb like it wasn't even there. Which of course, left me scrambling to grab on to something...anything... Luckily my husband was able to grab me and so I didn't fall and make a complete fool of myself.

Unfortunately, my foot did some really weird stuff when I landed on it!!! I am a big baby. Seriously!!! I don't like pain and it doesn't take much pain to make me cry. But oh my goodness it hurt... and throbbed...and swelled...and bruised...made me feel faint... nauseated, etc... I probably should have went to the doctor. But, that's another thing about me. I don't like 'em. They always give me medicine that make me puke! So, I'm healing (I hope)... but it is not fun. 


But even through all my pain, I can still find plenty of things that aren't wrong. So... to get my mind off of the pain of my stupid foot, I'm going to think positive and try to think of 5 things in my life that aren't wrong. If you decide to join, copy and paste the picture and link up over at Carried Away In ... KINDERGARTEN!

  • Being blessed with the bestest teaching buddy in the world that is always, always, ALWAYS there for me is NOT wrong!   She has the sweetest spirit of anyone I know.  If she reads this, she will probably tell me to quit crying!!!  Guess what she did?  She volunteered to do my duties today for me.  Two of them!!!! She definitely saved me from crying like a baby today.  I love her!
  • Having a husband that waits on me during my time of need is NOT wrong.  I think deep down he feels a tiny bit guilty for what happened.  Or maybe that is wishful thinking.  Whatever the case, I adore him for always being there for me.
  • Taking the day off Monday and staying in bed to let my foot attempt to heal was NOT wrong.  I wish I could say that I did something useful like read, blog, watch TV, but I was so heavily drugged, I don't remember anything.
  • Wishing that my brother-in-law would call and cancel his stay with us this weekend is NOT wrong.  My house is a total wreck and I am not going to wobble around to try and pick anything up to make his stay more comfortable. 
  • Wishing that today was Friday is NOT wrong.  I don't really like to wish my life away, but I am so ready for a weekend of doing absolutely nothing.

So that's it. My life as I know it this week.   Tomorrow is the 100th day.  I wish I could say that I'm really excited about it.  But I'm not.  I just hope the kids have fun as I try to avoid them stepping on my feet.  


  1. oh my - do you think you sprained it? My friend fell down the stairs and sprained one ankle and broke the other {at the same time} and said her sprained one hurt WAY worse than her broken one.

    Hugs to you!!!!

  6. I decided to follow back and I love your blog! Sorry to hear about your foot. About 5 years ago I had this great big idea that I could still do a front hand-spring. I got in my stance, spun gracefully, and landed on my feet (barely), but after I landed, I couldn't walk. Everyone thought I was joking about the pain...but I def. Was not! I fractured my foot pretending I was still young...I know the pain and I hope your foot feels better!

    I just have to ask...where/how did you get the blogroll. I can't seem to get the right code and all of the pre-made ones haven't worked?

  7. Oh . . . OUCH!!! I hope you feel better soon. Stay off that foot and be LAZY this weekend!

  8. OUCH! I totally feel your pain. Tammy sent me by to cheer you up . . . let's see . . . knock, knock . . . OK, so I'm not very good with jokes.

    For what it's worth, this post made me laugh out loud . . . not AT you, but with you, and NOT because of the pain, but because I always find a way to blame my husband for things, too . . . so you had me at hello! Oh, that and I also missed a step down . . . last Mothers' Day . . . .but no one broke my fall and I DID fall as HARD as I could when my ankle went out from under me . . . . ooooooo, my knees still yell at me about that now and again.

    Sending smiles from the soggy south . . . . and hoping your 100s day wasn't too bad!!!


  9. Thanks for stopping by and becoming a follower! I'm your newest follower, as well! O*M*G...I just fell a week ago this past Friday...AT SCHOOL!!! I had some new cute shoes, and I twisted my ankle...came down on my ankle and fell in the floor. I had gone to the cafeteria for something but the floor wasn't wet! It was way after lunch and there wasn't anyone even in there...and my kiddos were in PE...so I crawled..yes, crawled out into the hallway. Luckily someone spotted me and brought a wheelchair...YES WHEELCHAIR...I was mortified! LOL I can laugh about it now! They sent me to the doctor for xrays. Nothing was broken, praise God! But the sprain wasn't any fun! No more cute shoes for a month...just tennis shoes and a brace. Ugghhh. I hope you are feeling better!
