Tuesday morning I received the Xray results from my tumble last Thursday (I spilled a bit of water and forgot to clean it up then WHAMO) and mostly it's a REALLY bad sprain but I managed to pull off a teeny bit of ankle bone. I was so fortunate to get an orthopedic appointment on Wednesday and the doctor ordered this lovely (not) boot for ankle stability. I am so grateful! I can now zip around without any pain whatsoever. I just need to be careful not to re-injure my ankle.
I only have to go back to the doctor if I am not healing or having issues. I am accident prone and feel like this could have been way worse. I'm thankful that it's an ugly boot and not a cast. Also what's really nice is that this ugly boot decreases pain and swelling. Sweet.
Now that I'm new and improved and somewhat invincible, I resumed the Great Declutter and tackled the dining room. Sadly my husband snatched up the lawn ornament I thought we were donating. I also did most of the hall closet. We are making significant progress. We've made three donation trips, one scrap metal trip and one recycling trip. We are loading up the SUV once again.
On Wednesday after the doctor's appointment we dropped off scrap metal and I couldn't resist the mountain of metal photo. We made $9.75 - I'm sure there is more metal in our house to recycle but the car was full.
I go from room to room and ask these questions: Do I still like this? Does this bring joy?
The weather has been crazy hot and we did our first foot dangle in the pool. The pool is getting close to swimming weather but neither of us is brave enough yet.
As promised, I started another shawl!
