Bookish Blerd

I'm a book buying junkie who buys books faster than I can read them. But what better way is there to live than surrounded by books?! I read as much as I can and I do my best to give coherent reviews...which doesn't always happen.  I enjoy many genres, which is likely the reason I struggle with deciding my next read.

I'm a Special Kind of Klutz

So... I'll start with the positive. I didn't do any damage to the area where I had the surgery. The doctor said it's likely because I still walk in a way that is protective of the area.  

 

 

 

On the surgey foot, you know the side I broke the ankle on while my foot was still healing. The side that just came out of the boot.  I'm back in a boot. I managed to break three metatarsals. Yeah I'm just that clumsy. As for the right side, I managed to chip off some bone on my ankle, which is exactly what I did to the left side 2 months ago.  But because of balance issues--which really need to be taken into account when dealing with the queen of klutz--he can only put one boot on me at a time.  The toes are thee bones vs the one ankle, so I just get a snazzy ace bandage for the broken ankle.

 

Elevate, ice, repeat. And basically don't go anywhere. I am fairly certain I'm never leaving the house again.

 

Thanks to everyone for the positive vibes. I have another 6 weeks of being a burden to everyone in my household.  And yes that is depressed me feeling sorry for herself.  I'm in a crapton of pain--physical and emotional--so I figure I'm allowed to wallow a bit.
