Not a great way to start a new year

Things are fine over here... except I stubbed the hell out of one of my toes yesterday. I stubbed it so hard that it sent shooting pain all the way up my leg. It has since turned purple. I wasn't able to put any weight on it at all yesterday so I was walking, awkwardly, on the side of that foot the rest of the day.

I haven't bothered to get it looked at. I figure even if it is broken they probably can't do anything for it other than 'buddy-tape' it. If the medicine of stubbed toes has greatly improved and something helpful could actually come out of getting it looked at, someone let me know, but otherwise I'm just going to be mad at myself for being so clumsy for the next couple of weeks.

Then I woke up this morning with terrible pain in my core muscles... the kind of pain that gives you the chills and makes you want to curl up in the fetal position, except even that doesn't actually help. I think this is from walking on the side of my foot yesterday. It just threw me off so badly that my muscles are sore today in a very unpleasant way.

The good news is that wearing shoes helps my toe quite a bit and my muscle pain has gotten a little better as I've forced myself to move around.

Ok, enough of my bitching. Life if pretty good, except when I'm not paying attention to where I'm walking.

DUDE. No. I did that forever ago and they could not do anything but tape it. Hurt like a MOTHER. Feel better.

I didn't know which one to comment on, but I just wanted to say that I've enjoyed looking at your blog, and your little boy is adorable! I admire your sewing skills also. I'm a crafty person, but sewing is kind of low on my list. I'd prefer crochet any day.
Have a blessed day!

Oh no! I'm sorry about your toe. It is amazing how much pain one little toe can cause. I hope it starts feeling better quickly.

A friend of mine did a similar thing and actually broke some pieces off the bone, but they still just taped it. They gave her the option of surgery but told her it could fuck things up worse too. It hurt for her several months, but the thing that pissed her off the most is that it was a year or so before she could wear high heels again. She is a shoe girl and has quite the collection of expensive shoes, so that was apparently a hardship for her.

I hope yours heals quickly!

My sister has broken the same toe repeatedly because she keeps stubbing it. Hope you feel better soon. Also I love that bunny you made M. Soooo cute!
