Dang, That Hurts!

As I was hobbling to the lavatory for my morning constitutions I said to myself, "Dang, my toe hurts. I don't think I should be walking on it. I think I'll be spending the day in bed." And so I am.
Last night, while moving 15 pound weights from the basement to the front door (for a free cycle participant to collect), one of those weights fell, accidentally, on my right foot's big toe. I won't give the details since it might incriminate a member of my family. I screamed for about 5 minutes, then came upstairs, laid on the couch and had one of the kids place a bag of frozen peas on the toe.
It's not broken but dang, it hurts! I've elevated it, iced it and am off it. I know the toenail will go but I'm thankful it's not broken. So I'm a lady of leisure today and am more thankful for older children to take care of the younger one.

If it doesn't interfere with any medication you're taking, have a glass of that Black Mountain Pinot Noir you've raved about and watch a fun movie.

Take care, Barbie. We'll call ya later.
