So I've got this black brace that laces up the front like Mother Hubbard shoes, and THEN I get to stuff all of that inside a pair of, as it happens, Avias. And I do mean stuff. It's a glamorous sight, I tell ya. But I'm trying to be good, because he said if I don't, my ankle won't un-swell, and it will most likely dislocate, and then it will need to be fused. And that is a party I'd like to avoid. He said when the swelling is all down, we can talk about repair.
On a cheerier note, L and I went out Saturday and bought bicycles. His, of course, is black - because he IS the man in black. Navy blue if he's feeling particularly colorful. But here is mine:
LOVE my little bike! I'm surprised at how wobbly I am, though. Surprised and embarrassed. But we've gone out and done some riding every night (we have lights that flicker like little strobe lights on front and rear) and it has to get easier, right? I just haven't used those muscles in so long I feel like an idiot huffing and puffing along. But it's fun. L is so into this: he bought a rack to carry the bikes down to the beach to ride this weekend, and he ordered me a sweet little basket so I can carry things. Like snacks. Or beach towels. And I know he's going to order the i-Phone bracket for his Precious. Scott was telling him about it last night, and about how i-Phone has free apps that will plot your course and track your mileage. L was hooked, I could tell.
And speaking of Scott and Ashley: they took us to dinner last night for my birthday! (See? A week later, and it still goes on and on like a good birthday should!) We had such a good time, in spite of my ugly ankle brace. Scott enthralled L with tales of I-Phone apps, and Ashley and I planned a pool/lunch day for this Thursday. I will lose the brace for that.
Still no more pictures of little Skylee, but Katie never lets me down. Here are the recent ones of Mia and Hayden.
Could a little girl look any cuter in a hat?
Hayden has that same dreamy look I get on my face when I'm eating M&Ms. She's all decked out for Halloween! I hope she saves some M&Ms for Mema.
