Step on a Crack...

...break your Mother's back. Step wrong on the lawn, end up in the ER for 4 hours with a sprained foot. Yup. That's me...

Believe me, I'm much better today than yesterday. Yesterday I couldn't even wear the boot. Today, my loving and sweet Mom came over and took care of me. She made me lunch, got Caleb off the bus, watered my plants, even got me iced coffee from DD. Thanks, MOM! I appreciate all your help! The doc told me to stay off it for a day and take my 800 milligrams of Motrin 3 times a day and that I would be fine. And no more flip flops for me this season. I'm gonna need the arch support. And this right after I painted my toe nails. Oh, well. It could've been worse.

Being off my feet gave me a chance to

  1. get some much needed rest
  2. Get some computer work done, check out the newest Scrapbook Cupboard Newsletter. Let me know if you are liking the Riddles. I wanna know if you gals are reading them!
  3. Visit with my Mom
  4. Do no housework
  5. Have a yummy fresh-from-the-garden eggplant parm cooked for me by my Hubby!
Speaking of Hubby. If you're looking for something to do tomorrow night or someplace to go his band Centerlink is playing at Basta's in Weymouth. They go on at 9 and there is a $5 cover charge. They've got a few songs on their page, Patrick's written most of the lyrics. One of them is about me, can you guess which one? Nah, don't. You probably won't guess anyway. They are a Heavy Metal band but we all need a little metal in our life, right?

I'll be back up on my feet in no time. Until then, here's an inspirational quote for everyone...

You must take personal responsibility. You cannot change the circumstances, the seasons, or the wind, but you can change yourself. That is something you have charge of. ~Jim Rohn

Stay positive and positive ideas will come to you. No sprain is gonna keep me down!

Sorry to hear about your little tootsie. Get plenty of rest. Interesting music on Centerlink site, I like. Reminds me of my metal period in high school and college. Yes, I had a metal phase can you believe it. May not be into as heavy as I was but still like to listen to the music.

Thanks Susan! I didn't know you had a metal phase. Hmmm... so are you gonna download the newest Metallica album?
