I told y’all about my epic walk to school yesterday. It probably doesn’t come as a surprise I semi-injured myself.
A little while after I left the computer yesterday morning, I noticed my left ankle was no longer flexing. It wasn’t hard to notice because I was walking rather crooked. Strangely, no pain. Over the course of the afternoon, however, some pain set in. I don’t know if it was pain cause by whatever made my ankle stop moving or pain from the muscles being forced to walk funny. My husband, being a sweetie, made a take-out run while I kept my foot up.
Fortunately they had plenty of parents this morning, so I was able to swoop in, kiss the Short Kid and disappear. But not before he lovingly improved my day.
SK: Hey, mom, I think you forgot to brush your hair today.
Me: Umm, no I didn’t, but thanks.
Should probably make a hair appointment pretty soon.
So anyway, this morning there’s less pain in my left ankle and it’s slightly more flexible, but now I have pain in my right calf, no doubt from the limping and bearing more weight.
I’m walking around today like some kind of staggering, limping, dragging creature from a low-budget zombie movie. A zombie with bad hair.
Shannon Stacey to the hair salon STAT!
I’m one of those women with a standing hair appointment. I have an irrational fear of roots.
Sorry about the ankle/calf situation. I wonder what you did? Hmmmm
Gotta love kids. Always willing to be honest! Hope your legs feel better soon. I went on a walk last Saturday and my knee’s been hurting since. It wasn’t the up hill that hurt it but the down hill. So much for my trying to get in shape! :doh:
My hair’s generally the last thing on my to-do list. I have crappy hair, so I don’t invest a lot of time into de-crapping it.
And I’d definitely try to get in shape more if it didn’t hurt so much.
