Alive And Kicking.

It's been a while...

I bet you are all on-edge, worried sick about my ankle!

You're thinking, "Did she fall down the stairs? Did she shrivel up and die because of the pain? Did she get addicted to the pain medicine?" Okay, well it wasn't that bad... The pain wasn't that bad and I didn't get any pain meds. But I could totally see myself falling down the stairs. I didn't though, and that's what counts.

I'm alive and kicking hobbling.


There it is! I've got this nifty brace from the physical therapist. She really knew how to make it feel a better. Well, not at first. At first, it hurt so bad from when she messed around with it and from the exercises she made me do.

I just have to wear this brace thing for a few months (through the summer) and do some special exercises every day. You may have read how I feel about exercising here. I am not very fond of it, to say the least. These exercises are easier than most exercising, but they still hurt, and it's really just the fact of taking the time to do something that I don't really want to do that gets to me.

I hear that the exercises really make a difference, so I'm going to try to keep doing them. I haven't done them for 2 consecutive days yet, but I'm working on it. I have done them 3 times in 8 days though! It just always hurts so I have to take a day or two break.

I also have a really good idea. I want to invent a nude-colored ankle brace. Mine and all the ones I've seen are black. I mean, come on, could you make it stand out any more? Everyone stares at it. It draws the eye down to it. I actually have gotten more people tell me that my legs look tan. I think they feel bad for staring and then they try to make me feel a little better. At formal, I had this nice purple dress on, metallic shoes.... And then this big black thing on my leg!

Anyways, enough about the ank.

I had such a fun formal last weekend, and then Saturday I got to go meet the middle schoolers who I am working with this summer at church. On Sunday we had a fundraising football tournament that I worked at for my sorority. I had a busy, busy weekend.

This week meant back to work. I had a term paper, 2 tests, a paper, a composition, and a quiz. I'm done now though!

So it's off to have fun for the rest of the week and then BETH MOORE this weekend! I'll be in the ATL staying with my cousins and going to the conference on Saturday. I am oh, so excited! I'll letcha know how it goes. I'm sure it will be all good things, maybe a few funny stories. We will see, we will see!
