Ankle Update

I have finally been freed from the bonds of the huge black boot and may now leave the house on my own free will!!! (How was that for dramatic? :)

Okay, well I did get the big black boot off and I am now able to drive. I went to the Dr yesterday and the fracture/brake hardly shows on the x-rays now - actually I couldn't see it this time, but the Dr. says it's healing really well. He almost had me stay in the boot for another couple weeks, but thankfully changed his mind. I am in a smaller brace though. The smaller brace gives me more mobility, but I'm not feeling as secure with it yet, so I'm going a bit slowly again. Thankfully the foot/ankle has limbered up a lot since switching braces yesterday, so it is all feeling much better.

So back to doing the shopping and errands and such. Our dd says it's past time to get her signed up for gymnastics and swim and anything else we can find to sign her up for!!! LOL I have really enjoyed life being nice and quiet, but I guess that isn't to be anymore:) Well, it was nice and quiet for me. Dh has been running non-stop with over-time at work and shuffling dd around and doing the shopping/errands as well. He doesn't really like to be near that busy either, so I guess it's time for me to resume doing my part.

I've been getting lots of stitching and crocheting done here lately, and am hoping to keep up with all that. I've even been asked to write up a couple recommendations for 2 members of our 4-H club trying for a scholarship. These two really deserve a good chance at this and I'm a bit nervous since I've never done anything like this before. Hoping to do a good job for them!!

That is all for now. I need to go an actually do a couple of those things I talked about:) I will be back in a day or two with my WIPocalypse report. I have quite a bit of progress to show off!!
