Since then, I've re-injured that ankle twice. Once was during a big finish off a stage after Karaoke in Mexico during college. Spring break of course. That was a fun one. I was stuck in a foreign country with an f'ed up ankle depending on strong boys to carry me to and from the hotel pool, and between bars. But hey, wasn't so bad, considering I drank for free pretty much the whole rest of the week.
The last time I did it I was dancing around the living room with Ryan. Not doing anything crazy. Just jumping around.
So yesterday I did it again. I think it might be time to consider that surgery after all... I've had two separate opinions and they want to reattach the ligament and shave bone off my heel. Dis.gust.ing.
Anyway, today I'm planted on the couch. I hate calling in sick to work. I swear even if its legit, I feel so guilty about it.
The good thing about all of this is that my husband (who is in the running for Husband of the Year) is taking such good care of me. He had to go to work, but before he left he wrapped the ankle up in ice and wrote me the following list,
"Amanda's To Do List"
-R.I.C.E. (reset, ice, compression, elevate)
- ABC's (with your toe)
-Go through pics from yesterday
-Send away for print of 4-peaks picture
-Research for CA trip
I am one lucky girl. So the plan today is to rest and try not to go stir-crazy. And as one of my assignments was to go through my pictures from the air show yesterday, I bring you the following:
Golden Knights Army Parachute Team
From top: A10 Warthog, P51 Mustang, F15
(and if I got those wrong, I'll be really embarrassed)
Boys and beer, my 2 favorite things
I went with Ryan and his firefighter friend. We had a blast! We also saw some very interesting fashion choices out there at Luke Air Force base. I'll leave you with a woman and her pirate hat (?) for sun protection and a man wearing ballerina shoes.
I'm Amanda. I'm an engineer in an industry full of men, a professional wedding and family portrait photographer, a firefighter's wife, a traveler, and a dogMa.
