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.
