To all who've asked about my daughter, I appreciate it! She is doing okay. Still sore and swollen but the doctor said the wound looks good. Tetanus booster yesterday (which she had to have before summer was over anyway!) and three days of antibiotics for good measure.
We got home from the doctor yesterday and I caught myself slipping into a habit of the "old me". I was tired. I was cranky. I had a headache. DD got on the couch and fell asleep and I went into the kitchen to see about getting dinner together and before I could say, "what the heck are you doing?" I had cake batter whipped up. I cooked the cake and after dinner, I got DD a small piece and cut one for myself. I stood there in the kitchen not being able to WAIT to eat cake. I wanted that cake. I took a bite of cake. I sat the cake on the counter and asked myself if that cake was getting me to my goal, or if that cake was my old answer for being stressed and tired. I tossed my cake in the garbage. No, I don't like to be wasteful, but I did not NEED that cake. I felt better and stronger once my piece was resting in the bottom of the garbage can.
This morning I got up and DD was especially cranky. Said her foot hurt more today than yesterday, and it probably does. She's been keeping it still and I know it has gotten stiff. Still swollen as well as her ankle and up her leg a little way, it's difficult to bend the foot. She got ready for school, grumbling all the way there and trying not to cry. I felt sorry for her, but showing much sympathy would have caused the tears to start, so I had to remain patient, but had to also seem like I didn't think it was a big deal. She slid out of the car at school giving me the evil eye. I suppose it was for not caring that she was in pain. (Little does she know!!) I'll allow her the use of the evil eye today, she isn't usually crabby at me.
I came home, fixed myself breakfast and then did my workout. I feel better for it. My mood and energy are definitely increasing as I've increased my exercise. So this is only the second week of consistent exercise, but I already feel so much better!!!
Now I'm ready to get ready for work and tackle the day!
Have a great one everyone!!
