I have spent the last week feeling guilty about not updating the blog, so last night I finally managed to take a few quick pictures in the backyard. As you can see, I am still side-lined due to my ankle sprain…2+ weeks and counting… That being said, I am acutely aware that there are far worse things than a sprain and crutches, so I am trying to count my blessings and take this all in stride.
I have been making a conscious effort to try and hide my leg/ankle as much as possible (despite the racing-stripe tape job, I highly doubt anyone wants to see my swollen and bruised leg). Maxi skirts and loose linen pants have been in high rotation.
I sprained my ankle playing softball on Saturday (stepped on the 3rd baseman’s foot while running). Once the swelling goes down, my athletic therapist will be able to better grade the severity of the sprain (although she has already commented on how amazingly bad it looks).
I have never needed crutches before, so my learning curve has been huge. I have quickly figured out that pockets and a backpack are requirements & I am slowly getting more coordinated. If you have any tips or tricks to share, I would love to hear them!
I snapped this pic on my way to work on Wednesday (purposely keeping my injured foot out of the shot). The shorts are from Club Monaco (picked them up during an extra 50% off sale). The blouse is from J.Crew Factory, the sweater is from Zellers, the coat is Nike (very similar), and the shoes are from SoftMoc. And…the crutches are from the 80’s…they were my dads 🙂 He dug them out of the basement when I got back from the hospital. Everyone seems amused that I have wood crutches. It’s the oddest thing…
