Temporary Setback

Saturday, May 16, 2009

Well I did it to myself, so I have nobody else to blame...

While mowing today...two hours of cardio...YES! :-), I managed to hit a stone which popped out and slammed into my ankle bone. Didn't think much of it at the time other than grumble over the sting and the blood running. I was in a hurry to finish before the rain came. It even started raining, but not too hard, so managed to go for another hour or so.

Got out with DW doing some shopping for tools and supplies to finish off the replacement windows my neighbor had installed, but not finished.

Went out to dinner, but found myself progressively hobbling along...

Get home late tonight and sure enough there is a big goose egg on my ankle...ugh!

Doubt I'll be doing much treadmill or biking tomorrow...hopefully this won't derail me much beyond a day...!

Heading out tomorrow w/ my DW to see Ain't Misbehavin' with Ruben Studdard of American Idol fame...should be a good time!

    Don't forget RICE - Rest Ice Compression Elevation! Then again, I'd rather be seeing Ain't Misbehavin', too!! I hope you're feeling better even as you read this. Have had many an injury from flying debris while mowing. LOL!!

We have a tractor w/a mower attachment now (we're NOT mowing 2 acres on foot!), but it still shoots out missiles!

Take care of yourself! emoticon

    Oh, I just LOVE RUBEN. I know that show will be so good. I hope he has been able to keep his weight down.
