Brokey Toe


Yup - I broke my toe.  Monday morning, I was dashing across the house, after the baby, and I dinged my pinkie toe on a box at the top of the stairs.  It hurt like the dickens.  I could feel it up into my ankle, and I couldn't bare any weight on it.  I was pretty sure it was broken.  I broke one a few years back, and the inability to walk was similar.  It also swelled up and began turning colors.  I iced it down, made sure it was straight (ish) and taped it to the toe next door.   Well, the bandaid came off today, and the colors don't look so bad, a little red/purple.  Not bad.  And it looks like it's at a funny angle, but no really, it was crooked before too. ;)

We're getting ready to go on a camping trip.  I'm not sure how I'm going to do it with a broken toe. 
But my first step was to clean out the car so we can load it up.  I set the boys outside to play, in the shade while I cleaned it out.  Jacob thought watching his brother play was pretty cool, much cooler than watching me gimp around the garage trying to put things away.  They are going to have  a lot of fun this summer.
