A Cankle

Good morning! Sorry I haven't posted this week...it has been an interesting week so far!

If you can't tell from the photo I am showing you my nicely swollen left outside ankle. Yes, I have a tattoo, no I don't regret it, yes I would like another. I was doing my step-aerobics DVD on Monday and stepped off the side wrong twisting my ankle. Todd and a couple of friends thought that I should have it x-rayed so I did and...it is not broken. I went home with an air cast to keep my ankle from rolling (I'll wear this for a week or so) and crutches that I only needed to use Monday and yesterday. Today I'll start putting Arnica on it (don't know why I didn't do that on Monday!). It doesn't look super bruised in the photo but I just noticed bruising this morning.

Since I've had my ankle up for the last two days I haven't created much and what I have are design team commitments. Today is a busy day and tomorrow is Care Net BUT Friday is new release day for Doodle Pantry and I have two super fun cards to show you for that! Next week I will start my week off on Tuesday (if I don't post something on Monday) with a Sweet Peak from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps. Then I will have two more Sweet Peaks for ya on Wednesday and Saturday too! So hang in there...don't leave me yet, this is just a bump in the road!

I hope your week has been a good one so far! See ya soon!

So sorry about that. Isn't it always the little things that hurt the most? Tom and I were leaders for a hiking unit for Girl Scout day camp one year. I fell down a hill the first day and sprained my ankle. Needless to say I couldn't hike that week. He accused me of doing it on purpose since it was out 30th wedding anniversary that day and we couldn't go dancing. We've never gone dancing before. LOL! Take care.

Sorry to hear about your ankle. I hope it is feeling better today. My mother in law told us about Arnica (at least I am pretty sure it is the same thing). Looking forward to seeing your eye candy on Tuesday.

OUCH! Hope your feeling better soon. A bum ankle is no fun at all. Sending you some healing thoughts. Love your posts daily even if I don't comment.

Huggs...

Ouch! Awhile back I did something similar to my ankle and spent several days using "ice baths" to reduce the swelling and a crutch to get around. I believe I may have pulled my Achilles tendon as it still tweaks from time to time.
hope you've healed by now.

Maddy's got something going on on her knee... very swollen like this ankle of yours. Hmmm??? I think she slammed it down in dance class but then who knows? The girl is very clumsy and we go through so many pairs of jeans in a school year because she gets holes in the knees so quickly! :) Hope your ankle is much better?!
