Sprained Ankle = NO FUN!

I have been MIA for awhile now with blog posting.  I can't say I didn't have time or anything to post about b/c that just isn't true. But what I can say is that I haven't done much of anything these past couple weeks due to spraining my ankle. So, I have been doing very little as possible as it was hard for me to get around.

Now for the story of my sprained ankle.....

Back on April 12th we had a kickball game. This was towards the end of the game that I hurt myself and couldn't play anymore. I was trying to make a play at 2nd when someone threw the ball and it was going over my head, I thought I could get it so I jumped and when I did I came down on the base and my ankle rolled off it and I hit the ground and was done for. My ankle hurt so bad and I couldn't walk so I had to be helped off the field. No fun at all. It has been prolly since High School when I sprained my ankle last and that wasn't even that bad. This time though was horrible and I'm still trying to recover from it. Friday night when I did it I went home and iced my foot and soaked in Epsom salt then just relaxed. The next day I started slowing walking on it to make sure I could, I could but it hurt really bad. As the weekend went on my foot just kept swelling and swelling it was bad. I was taking a nap one afternoon and I woke up b/c I could just feel my foot growing that's how bad it was. I stayed off it the rest of the weekend b/c I thought maybe I over did it by walking on it and stuff. So, when Monday came and I had to go to work I couldn't even put on a flip flop so I had to wear just a sock, lucky I was on crutches so I didn't have to put my foot on the ground.  Monday afternoon we decided I should go to the Dr just to make sure nothing was broken . I went to Urgent care and when the Dr seen my foot he said he would beat something is broken in there. They did the xrays and come to find out nothing broke I just had a really BAD sprain. For the next couple weeks I kinda just hobble around and was very slow walking places. This week I finally am able to walk almost normal and it not hurt that bad. This recovery has been rough and I wish it was over and my ankle was all better. My kickball season is over but I'm hoping by Fall I will be ready to kick some butt!

This was the night I did it. Doesn't look so bad now but just wait....
 These are my toes 4 days after the sprain. My poor toes were so swollen they looked like little sausages. LOL
 This is my foot/ankle 4 days after I sprain it. I think my foot here looks like a beached whale it's so big and gross looking.

My foot/ankle are still a little swollen as of today, but I'm def doing better at walking and being able to move it and get it worked out.

Vampire Diaries: The Return: Nightfaill

I started this book just a few weeks ago. It's longer then the other books I have read in this series and I'm about half way done so far. This book is keeping my interest a little more but not too much. It has been pretty good so far, just not my favorite series so far. But I have been sticking with it so I can find out what happens. LOL

Graduation Announcements

Back in October I did a senior shoot for Austin. His mom had asked me if I could also make his announcements and party invites. Well of course I can.....so past few weeks I have been busy busy with making 60 Graduation Announcements and Party Invites for a friend. I finally finished them tonight and I can't wait to give them to her. I think they turned out cute and I hope she likes them. :) On top of making all that I had 170 party pictures to edit for a party I did back on March 9th (I know almost a month, Eeeek!) but those are all done as well and ready to send to people. All my projects for people are at end for now and I start focusing on some things I would like to make for our house.

This is the front of the Announcements
 This is the inside of them.
This is the 3rd year in a row I have been busy with graduation stuff but this time it isn't for my family. :) I'm glad I can help others out to make their day special! 

Congratulation Austin! Good luck to everything your future holds!!
