Shall I back up?
Three weeks ago we looked at a house a friend had for rent which I blogged about. The same day we looked at it we put in our 30 days notice at the duplex we'd been in for the past 10+ months and started working on some minor things at the house. This past weekend was the move.
I watched my niece and nephew Friday as always and had to walk from my mom's house, where I was watching them, to the duplex since we sold the couches and the lady was picking them up. When we got back to my mom's from the duplex Aiden was being a turd about getting out of the stroller so we acted like we were going into the house without him (all in fun, we were all in excellent moods!). As I went back to get him I passed my mom on her front steps (all of two steps mind you) and as I stepped onto the walkway my left foot was mostly off the edge of the walkway and the way I landed on it twisted it and I fell. I'll admit it, I fell on my right knee on cement and my left foot hurt horribly and I cried. First I cried because it hurt, then I cried because I hate my feet! This is the same thing I did to my right foot when I was 15, although time I stepped off a couch.... I know, ridiculous!
So... Friday I was useless. It hurt horribly to walk and I could barely hobble around but I refused to do absolutely nothing so I pushed myself. Thankfully we had a lot of help and got almost everything moved over Friday night. Saturday evening a couple trips were made but mostly I slept a lot and had to sit almost all day. Sunday I again slept a lot but got some things done around the house, including finding my foot braces that I keep around for a reason. I've been wearing my brace on my foot almost constantly since Sunday and it helps keeping the swelling down and gives it a little more stability so it's easier to walk. Although I left it off today to see what it'd do and it swelled a little it's doing much better and has pretty shades of purple all over it!
What my foot looked like Saturday evening. Don't mind the nail polish, I've had other things on my mind!
My foot this afternoon. Some swelling especially by my ankle but overall much better, other than the crazy bruising!
