Slip and Fall....

and a Toe could have gotten the brunt of it

Last night I was home cleaning while Jason was out at the Laundrymat (dividing and conquering) when the phone rang. It was Jason's mom calling to talk to me about something on the computer so I headed into our office to take a look at what she was talking about. All of a sudden my feet completly slip out from under me, my foot bangs into the leg of my desk and I am swearing like a sailor forgetting my mother in law is on the other end of the line.

I luckily did not hit my head or anything equally as bad, but as the night went on I noticed that my third toe was huring a bit. This morning the knuckle of the toe that is nearest the ball of my foot looks way bigger than it should be.

damn damn damn it. It doesn't hurt TOO bad and I think I must have just jammed it. Lucky for me this was a low milage week since I'll be all weighed down with turkey and mashed potatoes. I am going to try and run maybe 5 tomorrow morning, 5 on Friday and then 10....maybe on Sunday keeping me at 20 for the week with a nice long run on the weekend. That's the plan anyways.

Happy Turkey Day to everyone..

One more thing. I hit snooze this morning for over 2 hours. That's how excited I was to come into work. Not that things are even going that badly, for once my advisor and I are on the same page I just .... GRUMBLE...can't get my fit to work. So.....come on mini-vacation!

Count your blessings. I am willing to bet this was a near miss, and that your little toe is fine. Happy stuffing on Turkey day.

If it gets all colorful, you definitely have to post pics!! :) You know how us mom's like to see the gory details.

For any who are interested. . . I used to hear Leah walking (pounding) through the house and then I'd hear a crash, a howl, (delay. . . ) followed by "NOTHING! I'm FINE!!" Sounds like one of those moments. Maybe the apt, not unlike our house, has regions of bad gravity.

I hope Jason kissed your toe to make it better.

Enjoy your mini-vacation and good luck in Sarasota!!!!

Yikes! Sorry about the toe. Did you try icing it?

I can't believe you hit snooze for two hours!
